IP exam papers, assessments books and external textbooks.

Where can I buy IP exam papers, assessments books and external textbooks? I need them badly as I need to study for my coming End-Of-Year-Examinations. I need to score well so that I can be promoted to Year 2 as every year we have a certain criteria that we need to achieve to be promoted to the next year and continue in IP stream. If we failed the criteria, I will get into the 'O' level stream next year instead of the IP stream. And by the way, I cannot ask my seniors for help because i am in the first batch of IP. My school started IP only this year. (P.S. I guess you all know my school already since there's only 2 schools who have both IP and 'O' Level stream - Cedar Girls' Secondary School and Victoria School. I am girl so... you know what school and year I am in already. :siam: )

Why not get some help from tuition?

Why suggest tuition as a quick fix? The student did not request for tuition and was instead looking for resources to help her study independently.

You may consider speaking to friends from other more established IP schools to find out more and obtain resources. You could also speak to your teachers to find out more about their expectations and also ask them if they could suggest additional material, books, resources that are suitable. Be pro active and learning will be more fun and interesting! Good Luck!

I don't have any direct experience for IP schools, but I have supported my kids through different kinds of schooling (including Singapore schoolwork) as we have lived overseas for many years, so I have some general suggestions.

I agree with Quinessential Mum that you should first approach your teachers. They will be the best to tell you if you are performing up to expectations in daily work, and where you could look for additional material or help if you are not. I'm not sure how useful materials from other IP schools will be as your school may not be following the same curricula, but they could be a guide. Most importantly, be interested in your subjects, read widely, think about issues and form opinions. I would expect that IP school requirements cannot be met purely by studying notes or practising past exam questions.
