How to do well in IBDP

The IBDP places heavy demands on time management, communication skills, independent learning and research capabilities. To prepare for the challenging IBDP program, students should focus on improving both their spoken and written English during the early years of high school. At CANA, we offer programs designed to assist you with the development of language skills, as well as cultivating your skills in other areas.

Most of our students take regular lessons once or twice a week, which are supplemented by intensive courses during Christmas, Easter and summer holidays to boost their grades further. Students who join our university application consultation package will also receive close guidance throughout the whole application process. With our help, students are able to juggle their university applications and school deadlines with ease.

Regular courses for IBDP are accepting enrollment at all CANA centres. The course schedules are available here.

CANA’s IB track record

Having worked with senior IB examiners to publish our proprietary study guides and workbooks, our experienced IB tutors will help you through this challenging and rewarding journey. As well as past paper drilling, the teaching of concepts and coaching on winning exam techniques, we will guide you through internal assessments (IA)/subject exploration, Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and Extended Essay (EE).

Our approach has helped our students improve by an average of 1.5 grades across their subjects, with over 90% achieving a 6 or 7 in their respective discipline. After attending CANA, more than 50% achieved 40+ in their overall result, and many of our students go on to study at leading universities, including Cambridge, Oxford, Columbia, Cornell, LSE, Princeton, UCL, Durham and Warwick.

Our IB Tutors


The IB was tough and grueling program, but I credit my peers, teachers and the wonderful tutors at Cana for providing a challenging and fulfilling environment for me to learn. Cana tutors are not only knowledgeable in their fields but also approachable; willing and able to answer any questions I had on hand. Overall, I'm really happy with completing the IB and I can definitely say that the feeling of accomplishment after receiving my score made all the hard work worth it.

CANA's consultant team consists of graduates and students from Oxbridge, I think that the team is very reliable, trustworthy and supportive. The consultants organised the tutorial timetable nicely, helping me to avoid procrastination and make me feel well prepared before the interview. Apart from technical support, CANA consultants also gave me invaluable encouragement during the application process.
