Erudito Pre-IB courses empower learners to develop their understanding of basic concepts in biology and mathematics. Furthermore, it enable students to improve their practical skills in processes of scientific inquiry, logical thinking and problem solving skills. Pupils will plan and conduct investigations and develop their understanding of scientific theories related to connections between cells and systems, animals and plants. Also, this course will develop the students’ confidence to apply their mathematical skills and knowledge in appropriate situations.
Assessment of Pre-IBD Programme
At the end of the course, students will have two internal Pre-IB exams that are assessed by their teachers.
