First Lesson Trial

The Extended Essay is an independent piece of research part of the core Diploma and is results in a 4,000-word paper/essay/report. It is compulsory for all students.

The extended essay provides:

  • great practical preparation for undergraduate research
  • a chance for students to investigate a topic of special interest related to one of the six DP subjects.

Students develop skills in:

  • formulating an appropriate research question
  • engaging in a personal exploration of the topic
  • communicating ideas
  • developing an argument.

If you are an international student taking the IB Diploma the basic offer is made for your 3 IB Higher level subjects. It is very important when choosing these subjects that you understand what options you will have for university when the time comes. ITS has a long-established, highly experienced counselling team who can help you make these decisions and plan your academic course. But to start with, try out this excellent tool from the Russel Group which helps you experiment with your subject choices. Then come and see us.

How can ITS help?

Since 2005 we have been helping thousands of students at our schools in Hong Kong and since 2012 online across the world. We help you in a number of key ways:

  • tutorials with us are tailored to your needs – a student trying to get a 5 is treated differently to one wanting a 7
  • our tutorials target the core skills of the EE as above
  • we are experts in this, some international schools send their students to us specifically for our EE expertise
  • we have IB examiners who have helped develop all our support programmes
