About

45 IB/99.95 ATAR

Hi, I am Rainy! I recently completed my International Baccalaureate Diploma in 2020 at MLC School. I received a perfect score of 45, equating to a 99.95 ATAR, and I was the Dux (2019) and Runner Up Dux (2020) of the IB Candidature in my cohort. I also ranked first in a number of individual subjects in both years, including Mathematics, Economics, Chinese and Chemistry. I am currently aiming to study Medicine in Australia or Mathematics at an oversea university if possible.

My IB subjects are:
- English A Literature HL
- Mathematics HL (Calculus Option)
- Economics HL
- Chinese B HL
- Chemistry SL (Option D Medicinal Chemistry)
- Biology SL (Option C Ecology)
- EE (Chinese)

I am extremely familiar with the current syllabuses (both external and internal assessments) for all of these subjects, including those updated for examinations in 2021 and 2022. Besides those listed above, I am also confident in TOK. I received a perfect score (10/10) for my TOK presentation on the first attempt, and a predicted A altogether for TOK.

Because of my choice to study 4 challenging HLs, my involvement in co-curricular activities and leadership roles, I found time management and strategies to study efficiently considerably significant and useful. I personally did not opt for rote-learning and passive notes memorisation, hence I will instead prefer to share my experience with you on how to "work smart not hard". I will help you develop in-depth understanding of the content and perfect exam techniques through practice responses, all working towards maximising your learning with minimal effort and still sufficient time reserved for your Youtube and Netflix. :)

Further, I can offer you comprehensive advice and a wide range of resources (essay plans, top band samples and exemplars, exam "cheat sheets", past papers, topic-based questionnaires, etc.) to ensure you achieve academic improvement and personal best. I can also promise to answer any questions you encounter in your studies outside of classes via text or email.

Additionally, I completely understand that IAs and other written assignments embedded in the IB programme can also be quite daunting, so I am more than happy to offer proof reading service, provide extensive feedbacks on any sent work or assist you in formulating ideas, constructing essay skeletons and polishing final drafts.

You are more than welcome to contact me for any enquiries or further questions! I will respond to them as soon as I can. :))
