    International Baccalaureate vs A-Levels & Scottish Highers

    Is IB the new gold standard to guaranteed entry to university in the UK? Having gone through the whole IB Diploma syllabus with my daughter, we decided that our son was not an IB student, he went to boarding school for A Levels after GCSEs.

    Set your Academic Resolutions for School Success

    Academic resolutions can be a good start for many school-aged children. Similar to other New Year pledges, an academic resolution is aimed at dealing with areas that need improvement. And just like those other resolutions, now is always the best time to start. Develop the goals together, encourage your child to involve a trusted teacher or friend, but remember the goals are ultimately his. Talk over general ideas – an improved algebra grade, better study habits, making sports editor for the school paper – and help him set priorities, but let him make the final decisions. Setting his own goals increases his motivation and self-sufficiency.
