The IB or International Baccalaureate is not just a curriculum. It is a very unique methodology with different approaches to teaching and learning about the profound IB profile. IB is widespread in 82% of countries in the world. The charm of the IB curriculum lies in the fact how the learning framework integrates with the IB profile. The salient feature of the IB is focusing on the comprehensive assessment objectives. The successful completion of these objectives leads to the most targeted outcomes.
Global politics is fast-evolving and it draws a variety of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Global politics helps the students understand abstract political concepts. The fundamentals of global politics are power, equality, sustainability, and peace. Global politics encourages the students to develop an understanding of the local, national, and international dimensions of political activity. It also allows them the opportunity to explore the political issues affecting other lives. The students understand the abstract political concepts by grounding them in real-world examples. In order to ensure a transnational perspective, global politics invites a comparison between such studies and examples.
Global politics is a wider concept and has many branches and loopholes. The IB examination is divided into two levels, the standard level, and the higher level.
The IB tutors at the Ace Academy also encourage students to undertake an Engagement activity. The students look at the political issues from a theoretical perspective and submit a written report that is used to summarize their investigation.
Getting the perfect score of 7 in IB is not an easy task, but under the valuable guidance of the tutors, it is possible to achieve this feat.

The IB tutors help the students in the following way-
- The tutors encourage the students to think critically
The tutors train the students in such a way that their mind gets equipped to analyze any situation and think critically. In order to ace this subject, it is important to change your perspective to look at certain things in the curriculum. Don’t just mug up all the important concepts and definitions. Analyze the situation and develop a practical approach to looking at things. The IB tutors conduct interactive sessions to discuss world politics and the issues it is grappling with right now. The four core units of global politics are Power, Human rights, development, and peace and conflict.
These core units form the base of global politics.
The students should also take active participation in the debates the IB Global politics tutors conduct.
Participating in the debates and getting to know the perspective of peers clears many doubts of the students.
- Looking at concepts through past papers
The past papers held high importance. The biggest mistake a student can make is only focusing on the chapters individually without considering the importance of the previous year’s question papers. The IB examiners follow a tailor-made approach for every question and they make sure that no questions are repeated in the examination. These are some of the underlying principles, the IB examination board abides by. There are some areas where a student can is lagging in and some areas where a student has a firm base. The expert faculty encourages the students to gauge their expertise in the subject. The structure and the degree of toughness of the question give an idea about what comes in the paper.
It is very important to formulate certain techniques. Time management plays a crucial role in the entire process.
The training is designed in such a way that it takes the tutors only 2 tuition sessions per week to complete the syllabus.
- Highlighting the key points and preparing mind maps
The key points should be highlighted with the help of a marker. It is also important to jot down certain concepts for better understanding. Mind maps are the diagrammatical representation of a particular concept.
When you have a practical visual in front of you, it gets way easier to memorize the concepts.
The IB Global politics tutors have formulated several strategies for the preparation of the mind maps.
- Practicing through different textbooks
Don’t simply restrict yourself to a single textbook. The expert faculty at IB do not recommend you to rely on a single textbook for the examination. It is very important to expand your horizons and practice through various textbooks. The e-books for the IB are the key to understanding various topics. More than 7 publications offer high-quality IB syllabus. It is also important to have a good grasp of providing practice to the students.
The Global politics tutors at Chennai have assimilated all the important data into one folder and the students can access this data at any time.
The handbooks at the school are outdated most of the time, so the IB students have created booklets that have the latest editions.
