Q. How long have you been studying at SISHK?
Q. What is your advice for students who want to join or currently studying in the IBDP?
Try to pace out your workload according to urgency or else you will find yourself rushing it all before the deadline. Another tip: Your teachers are always there to help you so consult them as much as possible.
Q. What was the highlight of your IB journey at the school in the last two years?
I believe it would be the bonds formed between students and the teachers.
Q. What is your studying strategy?
I would do at least 2 sets of past papers to determine which topics I am the weakest at. I then allocate the proportionate amount of time to the particular topics to do practice questions on.
Q. What are some of the mistakes that you have made that you would not make again?
Not enough revision prior to the Mocks and actual IB exams.
Q. How did the teachers support you during the IB programme?
They showed me their time table and asked me to find them whenever I have questions or doubts. They also provided me with topic specific questions to do.
Q. How would you describe the student life and student leadership opportunities in SISHK?
There are plenty of student leadership opportunities in SISHK such as the student council, athletic council and community council.
Q. Can you share more about your university admissions experience?
There were a lot of decent universities that could open up new roads for me. I focused on pursuing paths which would direct me to my dream career. Our school’s university counselors were always happy to help me out.
Q. What is the one thing that you will miss after leaving SISHK?
Talking to teachers and friends I have known for a long time.
Q. What are you planning to study after IB?
I am planning to study business administration.
Q. What is one part of the school that you would like to see preserved and not changed?
The mural by the canteen
Q. Any last words of advice for your juniors?
Enjoy your time in SISHK because you will definitely miss it when you leave to go to National Service or University.
