Designed to support November retake candidates

For many students, November retakes are a mystery. Many IBO schools don't run a November session, and re-taking an entire year at school can be costly.

Designed alongside IBO professionals, this 8-week online programme is run by IB world school teachers in a powerful online environment. Re-watch lessons, receive exam-style support, re-submit internal assessments and even secure a local exam centre for the N23 exam session.

Student success case study

"I feel that during the lead up to exams its really important to keep a schedule. I think Elite IB stood out because it was so so organized, you have a certain amount of lessons each week, you meet with the same teacher, and I felt like this was the best way to keep me on track for exams."

Why did you attend the retake course?


I feel that during the lead up to exams its really important to keep a schedule. I think Elite IB stood out because it was so so organised, you have a certain amount of lessons each week, you meet with the same teacher, and I felt like this was the best way to keep me on track for exams.

What would you say to someone considering the retake course?


I'd say go for it because its the best way to keep on schedule. I think when you're revising, it is the whole thing with little and often. I think so many students make the mistake of thinking I have a month for one exam and think they can cram the whole syllabus in 2 weeks but that's really not an effective way of revising.



I think my teachers were great. I think what‘s good with my teachers was that they were really always available. I remember redoing my Biology IA and emailing my teacher every day before the deadline with a new question. Something had gone wrong and she was always there to answer my questions and say that it's fine, you're not going to fail. She was always there to reassure me.

How was your experience as a whole?


I think Neo (the LMS platform) was really really useful. I think even if timings didnt work, it was so easy to drop back on a session if you’d missed it. If I had an issue within the session or if going back through my notes, I got confused about why I'd come to a certain answer in Maths then I could always go back and rewatch my teachers explanations so that was really useful for me.

Confidence? Feel prepared for upcoming retakes?


I think it was really useful having a teacher to ask all the questions you needed to ask at any time. Particularly now, teachers are dealing with even more stress, it was hard to get in touch with them. For me it was answering specific questions and covering the core material.

Endorsed by Schools

We have designed this programme in collaboration with multiple IB schools, to alleviate the burden on DP teachers & coordinators.

We're acutely aware of how difficult holding a November exam session can be, both teaching & exam provision.

My tutor is just amazing, she is really sweet and knows what she is teaching. she is very friendly so that makes asking things to her more easy and I can ask her anything very small in Chemistry without any hesitation.

I like that she goes back to basics with everything and doesn’t assume we know how to answer the question. I like going through things from the very simple to the complex and I find it broadens my understanding

I enjoyed the style of the economics class, heavily focused on new content learning through power points and verbal questions. None the less there was a good balance of learning the course material and completing practice questions.

They had a unique teaching style which made each lesson enjoyable and a thing to look forward to. I quite liked how engaged the tutors were in the course, leaving no stone untouched and ensuring everyone understood the content.
