Using IB exam papers as the basis for revision and examinations

The IBO sells the recent IB papers and mark schemes at Follett

Each exam and mark scheme costs £1.99 Pounds sterling. Therefore, buying all of the tests and mark schemes for the last four years can be expensive. Purchasing the most recent is often the best policy

Taking one whole year's tests in one sitting should take 3 hours for SL and 4 hours for HL students. The IB calendar has each examination sat on different days so it is good practise to do the same when setting these papers for mock / practise examination sessions.  One last piece of advice would be to allow your students the same amount of time to complete each test as in the real thing - to get students used to completing the work in the time allocated.

Alternatively why not use the IB style questions that I have written in this section. These are all IB in style and so the micro and macroeconomics questions are all in the style of paper I while the International Economics questions are in the form of paper II. I have also included some paper III style questions for HL students only.

Each question that I have included also contains a mark scheme and useful tips for completing each exam question.  They are perfect as either a major test or homework exercise.
