Global Politics HL/SL

Global Politics - if politics is about power, then IB Global Politics is the study of the use and abuse of that power. OSC’s Revision Course (HL/SL) helps you understand, analyse, and evaluate the sixteen concepts that lie at the heart of the four Core units: power, sovereignty, legitimacy, interdependence, human rights, justice, liberty, equality, development, globalisation, inequality, sustainability, peace, conflict, violence, and non-violence.

The class will be organised around the needs and wants of the students in the classroom, so you are strongly encouraged to make your requests. Are you, for instance, more interested in revising one concept rather than another? You will also be assisted in identifying issues. For example, in the Power module, ‘are countries armed because the world is dangerous, or is the world dangerous because countries are armed?’ Similarly, in the Globalisation module, ‘have there been more advantages or disadvantages from interconnectedness?’ Furthermore, to get the full benefits of this course, it would be extremely useful if you could bring knowledge of case studies with you.

All OSC classes are tailored to the needs of the group, so you decide which areas to focus on. We will certainly examine strategies and tactics for maximising performance on the short-answer stimulus paper, and the essay component of the May exam.  

After all, ‘knowledge is power’!

History HL/SL and History SL

History – far more than just a series of random events to memorise! OSC’s History Revision Course (HL/SL) makes you aware of the ideas and patterns that influence the events. It allows you to see the ‘big picture’ – the connections between different topics and countries – and makes it easier to understand the similarities and the differences between different case studies you have covered. 

We construct a timetable that gives you a choice of nine 1.5–2 hours sessions that comprise the course. Each session focuses on a syllabus topic, a theme connecting several topics, or the skills necessary for a particular paper. By selecting and reviewing the key topics you have covered in an immersive and highly focused way, you will not only improve your recall of the syllabus material and concepts, but you will also deepen your understanding much more effectively than by spending months on the topics separately. Your revision is kept fresh and productive when you review your topics from different perspectives, in a new setting, with new teachers and different students.

We can support students who have studied 20th century world history topics for the most common topics. If you are unsure that your topics will be covered, please contact us – our teachers will probably be able to help you out one way or another!

We support the following topics:

Paper 1: Prescribed Subjects 3 (The Move to Global War) and 4 (Rights and Protest)
Paper 2: World History Topics 10 (Authoritarian States), 11 (Causes and Effects of 20th Century Wars) and 12 (The Cold War)
Paper 3 (HL only): The more commonly studied HL Options for Depth Study 4 (History of Europe)

You will review the three strands of the syllabus that make up the ITGS triangle model: IT systems, social and ethical issues, and specific scenarios to prepare you thoroughly for Papers 1 and 2. This could be through the lens of any particular IT system, such as databases or networks, or through the lens of a specific social and ethical concept such as privacy and anonymity, or something else – it will be your choice, depending on what your group wants to focus on. We will also review the Additional Higher Level parts of the syllabus that will enable you to tackle the Paper 3 case study easily and enable you to be confident on how to use your research within your answers. However, the course will most importantly ensure that you have a full understanding of the correct examination techniques to access the higher-level grade boundaries across all papers ensuring success – its these tips and tricks which will make the difference from a 6 to a 7, or a 5 to a 6 in your final grades.

Spanish B HL/SL

Spanish – one of the most widely spoken languages in the world! OSC’s Spanish B (HL/SL) Revision Course helps you to review the syllabus structure, study a range of texts, develop your written and oral communication skills, and boost your confidence of achieving your desired grades.

This class will prepare you thoroughly for both exam papers; our experienced IB teachers know what the examiners are looking for, and will help you organise your ideas and improve your ability to express them in the exams. For Paper 1, you will practise the text-handling exercises on five written texts and develop receptive skills within the three required themes: communication and media, global issues, and social relationships. For Paper 2, you will cover the writing exercises, hone your productive skills, and focus on interpreting the exam questions and practice, including a personal response to a stimulus text. You will be encouraged and supported with your ongoing, independent grammar, and vocabulary revision. Whether your option is cultural diversity, health, leisure, or something else – we let the group decide which areas to focus on. Just don’t forget to bring your laptop, texts, and class notes!

Sports Exercise & Health Science SL

SEHS – you have spent two years learning all the cool stuff about the body. Your head is buzzing with key terms like ATP and sliding filament theory. There are bits you love, bits you hate and, like magic, along comes a course that pulls everything together and gives you the tools and confidence to tackle your upcoming exams.

OSC’s SEHS SL Revision Course involves two and a half days of discussing sport, exercise, and health with people who equally enjoy the subject. You will review key topics such as energy systems, ATP production, the Bernoulli principle, sliding filament theory, and more. Being part of a revision group will enable you to challenge and build on what you know, and tackle your revision in a structured way. Exam practice and group discussions will help prepare you thoroughly for Papers 1 and 2. To ensure that your time is used efficiently, Paper 3 topics are not strictly covered, as students will have studied for different options; however, there may be time to include them towards the end the course.

All OSC classes are tailored to the needs of the group in terms of pace and direction. To get the best out of the course, remember to bring your laptop, textbook, and an open-minded approach.
