Hey everyone, this is from your new IBforMe team; Terrence, Emefa, Ewuraba, Darren, Jason and Farida. And if you’re reading this, I just want to thank you so much for joining us on our new journey.

We all just recently finished our first year in IBDP, and it was eventful, to say the least, filled with countless of sleepless nights but a lot of fun along the way when we took time off our studies and engaged in other school activities.

Just a quick overview of our plans for the summer, over the next few months, we plan to update the IBforMe website with much more recent useful resources across all the programs, make the website a more engaging and interactive platform, and finally update the already established peer-tutoring service.

But before we start, here’s a quick introduction from all of our members.

Hello everyone, my name is Terrence Adegbesan. I love swimming, football, exercising, and playing checkers. My favourite subjects are Mathematics and Psychology. So far, my time in the IB has been enjoyable, there have been moments of ups and downs, but overall it’s been smooth (I say this as I’m about to begin summer with 4 IAs and my Extended Essay to complete😔). My best advice for IB students is not to lose steam and fall into procrastination. Whenever you feel overwhelmed by the workload, calm down and plan out how best you can complete it all.

Hello everyone, my name is Arlene Emefa Agbotui. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and my favourite IB subject is chemistry. So far, my time studying in the IB DP program has been a real journey, with many ups and downs, but I’ve tried to demonstrate resilience. My recommendation to IB students is to take a breather every now and again. The IB, particularly the diploma program, can be overwhelming and overly challenging at times, so try to find methods to relax but don’t overdo it. Also, plan ahead!!!

Hi guys, my name is Ewuraba Benyarko. I guess there’s not really much to say. I love to read and volunteer at veterinarian centers in my spare time. Honestly, the IBDP program can be stressful at times but just remember its a 100% doable. It just takes the right amount of determination and consistency to achieve excellent results. In addition, your learning journey should solely be based on personal growth. What others achieve has nothing to do with your academic progress. So hang in there!

Hey guys, My name is Darren Owusu Ansah. I love to watch movies and catch up on many series, but of course, learning comes first. My favourite subject in the IBDP is Biology HL. My experience with the program, although it has been daunting, it is possible to attain that 45 points. With hard work, dedication and effective time management strategies, you will be flying high in the colors of the IB. You've got this!!

Hello guys, My name is Jason Van-Tay. Because of how tiring the IB programme is, my favourite thing to do with my free time is sleep. My favourite IB subject is ITGS. What really makes the IB journey stressful is the extra coursework like IAs, EE and TOK, but if you're able to get these things out of the way early and get enough time to focus on studying, you shouldn't have a problem.

Hello guys, my name is Farida Saani. I have tons of hobbies, but my most desired hobby is shopping! The advice I will give to you guys is, do not waste time at all! If there is anything that needs to be done, do it! But also, do not put too much weight on yourself. I know the IBDP programme is rigorous, but everything is possible if you put your mind to it. This journey may have its pros and cons, but just know it's all worth it at the end of the day.

Study hard but also have fun this break! - Terrence

If you've been following our journey, you'd know that we started this website at the beginning of DP1 when we were new to the programme and unaware of the rocky road ahead. Two years later, we're starting our final IB exams in two days!!

The DP has taught us many nouns. Patience. Balance. Endurance. Creativity. It has also instilled us with many adjectives. We are more knowledgeable, confident, and dedicated versions of ourselves. Though it was not easy, as of May 20th we know we'll be able to say we finished strong.

This being said, we (Elorm and Lena in case you're confused), have reached the end of our IBforMe journey as well. The site was started to connect IB students all over the globe, and provide them with the resources they need to succeed and the connections they need to stay sane. We believe we've done just that, as the site received over 5000 visits from Senegal to Australia in its very first month!

We want to see IBforMe soar and reach even more students, which is why we're passing it down to a new, even more innovative team of students to carry on our dream. Introducing the new team of IBforMe: Terrence, Farida, Emefa, Jason, Belina, Darren and Ewuraba.

Thank you so much for contributing to our site and we can't wait to see what the future has in store for it and us! Who knows, maybe we'll start a CollegeforUs...

Welcome to 2022 IB students!

Elorm and I are in our last year of the Diploma Program, and as you can imagine we've been flooded by waves of schoolwork. But never fear, we are here with more links and resources than before!

I've attached some of my personal notes for the subjects that I do so click the button below and hopefully it helps those of you who have picked the same subjects. If not, be sure to use the links at the bottom of every page to access our updated resource lists.

Good Luck!
