But, the following represent some tips that we have found useful… In it, we’ve represented your “young person” as “Jakarta” – mainly because writing “son, daughter or ward” repeatedly takes up more space.
Jakarta cannot begin the revision program too early. The confidence gained by an early start is huge.
Support, support and more support
The IB Diploma Programme is tough. But, everyone believes that Jakarta can succeed on it. Show that your belief in this is unwavering. Consider:
Understand the work-load
Jakarta will have lots of deadlines to meet in the second year of the Diploma or will have met lots of deadlines already. Coursework – usually amounting to 20-30% of the final grade – has to be submitted to the IB. CAS also has to be completed. It is important that Jakarta gets all of these commitments out of the way by the deadlines set by the school. But, don’t forget that it is also important for Jakarta to get the best possible grades for them. If any “Internal Assessment” completion dates are looming or outstanding, support Jakarta in doing the work as thoroughly as possible, but certainly by the deadline. Does Jakarta have commitments outside school? Are all of these necessary? Can they be scaled down as the exam period gets nearer?
Look out for signs of stress

The more of the following that are visible, the louder the alarm bells should be ringing:
If the signs are mounting, what can you do? This depends a lot on the type of person that Jakarta is. The emotional support described above is vitally important. But, one key is often relaxation. Breathing exercises are good. So are other relaxation techniques. Physical activity is great. You might be able to do something diverting as a family. Or, Jakarta’s friends might rally round to go and have fun together.
Know about support systems
Jakarta has many options for supporting revision. These include:
Celebrate the achievement
Finally, celebrate when Jakarta finishes the exams. It’s a milestone which needs to be recognized. The results won’t be known for a month or so, but Jakarta’s success in completing the course is magnificent… whatever the outcome.
