After 30 years of location courses, we are pleased to host our first online course; the Live Stream IB Exam Course. Reviewing up to 2 subjects at a time in 5 consecutive days, join our expert educators and other dedicated IBDP students, and study online from the comfort of your home.

Small class sizes and lessons tailored to suit you and your OSC classmates’ needs, allow for a big leap in exam confidence. You’ll leave with a better understanding of the subject and what examiners are looking for.

The Subjects

Covering what’s needed for exam success.

With 14 IBDP subjects available, choose up to 2 subjects per 5 day course interval. Each subject is taught for a total of 15 hours, divided into 3 hour sessions per day, either in the morning or afternoon BST. Taught by leading IB teachers, we’ll review the main concepts, key exam strategies and the areas you need help with most, helping you gain the grades you deserve.

There are three 5 day course intervals, letting you benefit from up to 6 subjects.

The subject you’re looking for isn’t listed? We’re expanding subject coverage continuously as demand changes.

OSC IB Exam Live Stream (Pilot)

The OSC Physics HL revision course was super helpful. We focused on a lot of problem solving and the curriculum was catered to the students’ needs. It really helped me revise for my mock exams. If you are struggling with problem-solving and specific topics, this course is a great supplement to your personal revision.

Who are the OSC teachers?
Our teachers are experienced teachers from top IB schools around the world. Many are also examiners – in our 2015 revision courses 93% were examiners for the IB.

Our teachers go through a strict and thorough recruitment process, and a mentoring programme if they are new to OSC.

I would like to sign up for two subjects. How long will the course be?
Each subject is taught for a total of 15 hours, divided into 3 hour sessions per day, either in the morning or afternoon BST. If you would like to take two subjects, we recommend doing this over 10 days to limit your screen time. However if you would prefer to take two subjects in 5 days, please state your preference in the booking process and we will try our best to schedule this for you.

The maximum number of subjects you can take is 6 which equates to learning 2 subjects per week, each for 3 hours a day. For 6 subjects the entire length of the course is 15 days.

Can I study a subject twice during the IB Exam Course?
As long as we can guarantee a different teacher, you can study a subject twice, in the same level. This will mean that you may gain the benefit of experiencing two different approaches to the subject
How many students are in each class?
On all of our courses we ensure that there is a maximum of seven students per class. This allows our students to have more one-on-one time with their teachers.

COVID-19 Adapted

Feel safe so that you can focus on what counts.

We've been implementing a range of measures to offer you COVID-19 adapted at location courses, guaranteeing you a worry-free and safe experience. We’ve handpicked the locations that allow us to put into practice all of the following measures:

Social Distancing

We have optimised every inch of space in our classrooms, common areas and offices to ensure that everyone has the space to work comfortably and safely.

Staggered Class Times

Our classes run on different schedules throughout the day, to reduce footfall in common areas and to avoid any crowding or queues before class, during breaks and at the end of the day.

Face Coverings

Every member of staff and all of our students are required to wear face coverings at all times, unless they are seated at their designated work stations.

Temperature Checks on Arrival

Every individual who enters the venue is required to check in and have their temperature taken and contact details recorded. Daily temperature checks provide an added line of defence to our staff and students while on course.

About me

"Having been involved in either studying or teaching geography all of this century I am both fascinated and concerned about the changing dynamics of the planet we live on. As the subject has evolved, so has my passion. Whether it be environmental sustainability, demographic transition or how to respond to global pandemics, it continues to be the most relevant subject for encapsulating contemporary affairs."

Q&A

How many years have you taught with OSC?

6 years

What do you enjoy about teaching with OSC?

The whole experience! There is a fantastic base of in-house OSC staff who make sure everything runs smoothly and I have the opportunity to work with great teachers and highly motivated students from all over the world.

What is your best tip for revising for exams?

For geography a top tip is to combine your case-studies wherever possible. For example, your 'detailed example' of a country with uneven population distribution could also be used as your 'case-study' of a country benefitting from a demographic dividend.

About me

"I love trying to reconstruct the past, looking for insights into what made and makes men and women tick, and discussing with students and colleagues the array of different perspectives from which our human experience can be viewed."

Q&A

How many years have you taught with OSC?

26 years

What do you enjoy about teaching with OSC?

I love the buzz of the revision courses and the mix of students and tutors from across the IB world community.

What is your best tip for revising for exams?

Start early and keep your revision active.

About me

"I love Chemistry and its concepts, which successfully explain life. The two most important ones are attraction (in chemical bonding) and competition (in rates of reaction and in many other areas of chemistry.)"

Q&A

How many years have you taught with OSC?

14 years

What do you enjoy about teaching with OSC?

The highly intellectual talks with colleagues and students. OSC is more than Professional Development for me; it is an invaluable experience.

What is your best tip for revising for exams?

Mind maps, peer teaching, past papers questions practice, asking experts and of course attending OSC IB Exam Courses.

About me

"I love teaching because it must be one of the only vocations where you can use pretty well all the skills and knowledge you have picked up throughout your life, and - even better - you (almost always!) have an appreciative audience."

Q&A

How many years have you taught with OSC?

21 years

What do you enjoy about teaching with OSC?

It gives me a strong injection of internationalism - you could say I'm addicted!

What is your best tip for revising for exams?

Quality is as or more important as quantity: get the most out of every question you practise. Don't just answer a bunch of questions. Use them to practise speed, technique, concepts... Use up every drop of one question paper before you start another.

About me

"The reason I love maths is that it there is no fuzzy logic; the answer is either right or wrong. Getting the answer to a challenging question is such a satisfying feeling!"

Q&A

How many years have you taught with OSC?

9 years

What do you enjoy about teaching with OSC?

What I enjoy most is the students; they are so enthusiastic and eager to learn! Also, not to forget the great colleagues that I work with there. It is such a positive place to be!

What is your best tip for revising for exams?

Two tips: Do maths at least one hour a day; work with past IB examination questions and always use the formula booklet. Be very familiar with your GDC.
