IB Maths was quite different because it had much more application involved compared to ICSE math. Ms. Yogesh is a good instructor and is very elaborate and clear with her method of teaching and explaining. The tutorials and quizzes were immensely helpful to me as they refreshed my concepts and challenged my knowledge and made me more eager to learn. The course has definitely been a very crucial part of the beginning of my road to IB success as it will help avoid difficulty understanding the topics taught to me once my school starts. Being an ICSE student before, this level of application and interaction was new to me and it has definitely benefited me for what’s to come. The Finale Task was a good introduction to what the research and exploration based assignments are going to be once school begins and according to me it’s a very multifarious approach to math and how what we learn is very much applicable to real life scenarios.

IB Math is more concept based than the math I did in the ICSE curriculum. It also has great depth and as all concepts are connected to each other it is important to have clarity in the previous learnt material to smoothly learn further ahead. The teachers have a lot of experience in their work field and because of this they can easily identify when a student is having some difficulties to understand a topic. They are very patient and are ready to explain a topic multiple times until one has a good understanding of it. The course successfully helped me shift from the ICSE math curriculum to the IBDP math curriculum. The tutorials and quizzes provided revision of the concepts learnt throughout the week and they helped me understand in which area I had doubts. They also showed an example of how the question of a particular concept would be asked.

Krisha Kantharia

Jamnabai Narsee International School, ICSE, Pre-IB Math (AA HL) 2023

The instructors really explained the topic well and helped us understand it betterThe tutorials and quizzes were very helpful as they kept us active and made sure we practiced what we learned in class. The course helped me prepare for what’s to come in the IB Diploma.

Zeus Shaikh

JNIS , ICSE, Pre-IB Math (AA HL) 2023

IB is more concept based compared to IGCSE as we dwell deeper into the concepts that are being covered. Over the course, we have done several explorations and investigations that have helped us gain insight into what the IB programme entails. Our course instructor was able to explain the topics with ease and especially when anyone had any doubts they were explained properly until it was all clear. The tutorials and quizzes helped refresh the concepts that had been discussed in the previous class. It was also a nice way to start the sessions as the concepts in the quiz were used in that day’s class. Through the course, I was able to get an idea of how IB is going to progress over the course of the next 2 years which makes me feel prepared and a bit less anxious. 

Vinaya Dua

Step by Step school, IGCSE, Pre-IB Math (AA HL) 2023

  IB expects us to apply math more in real life than any other board. Ms. Dhingra was very involved throughout, and she explained the Math exploration extremely well. The course has allowed me to enter IB without fear of any expectations, as I strongly believe the concepts taught will come in handy.

Kunaal Dhawan

The Shri Ram School - Moulsari, IGCSE , Pre-IB Math (AA HL) 2023

Ms. Vibhu cleared all the doubts and explained the concepts very well. Tutorials helped me get a good overview and revise topics that I had done previously. Quizzes were interesting and different from normal questions. They taught me different methods of approaching a question. The course taught me the rigor that the IBDP requires.

Aurjun Menon

“The course has helped me increase my confidence in solving IB style questions. Our instructors were amazing, they were able to teach the topic in detail with various approaches and derive each concept.”

Pratyush Goyal

Symbiosis International School, Pune, IGCSE, 2022. Pre-IB Math HL

“These Pre-IB courses has helped me relieve my stress about IB math. It was very well planned, the resources provided were very effective and made the learning smooth and understandable. The instructors are very experienced with a deep understanding of every topic, they were very supportive and always ready to clear all our doubts and make us understand the topic again and again, therefore learning was easy with them.”


Rishi Sai Kattunga

The Woodridge High School, Aurangabad, CBSE, 2022, Pre-IB Math HL

“IB math doesn’t just expect an answer to a question, it requires reasoning, analysing and critical thinking. In my earlier studies we never used any form of technology and now we get to learn about and use many different types of technology. The tutorial and quizzes  were helpful in revising and testing our knowledge. Rohit Sir, is a wonderful teacher! He was extremely patient and explained the topics really well at a good pace through the class. Shreyasi ma’am was supportive and accommodating, she solved my doubts and explained them extremely well. The course has equipped me with enough and more knowledge to confidently enter the IBDP Programme and will surely help me significantly as we go on to do math throughout the year.”

Shrshti Santhosh

Cathedral and John Connon School, Mumbai, ICSE, 2021, Pre-IB Math SL

“IB maths is quite different from what we had learnt previously as it encourages us to not use a standard method or a formula on how to solve questions but pushes us to find an elegant and intuitive way out. Our instructors were absolutely fabulous along with the peer mentors who were able to identify exactly what our confusion or doubts were and explained them quite clearly. I think this is a great attribute of a teacher to be able to identify what is on the mind of their student. The course also gave me a real taste of how writing an Internal Assessment would look like. It also helped us to get familiarised with the use of technology.”

Indrasena Reddy

Delhi Private School (DPS), Dubai, CBSE, 2021. Pursued IBDP at The International School Bangalore, Pre-IB Math HL

“These Pre-IB courses helped me revise and understand most concepts with much needed clarity, as IB Math is much harder. The course also taught me a better work ethic. The quizzes were good consolidation activités and most of all challenging which made it fun as we interacted with new people. ​​Miss Dhingra is very knowledgeable and is excellent at what she’s teaching. The use of various softwares to make the virtual environment more engaging was very effective.”

My journey with courseleap

Coming from a CBSE background switching to IB was big deal and i was quite scared about this shift. The coursleap program however helped me understand what exactly the IB program was going to be like what are the best strategies to tackle any problem that might come along the way. The course also gave me a headstart for IB and bridged the gap between CBSE and IB. It also showed me that we must learn to forget that there is only 1 standard way but realize that a question can be solved in multiple ways.

The course was quite long and extensive, but also very effective. The daily revision work helped make it easier to absorb information focus in class. The engagement exercises done in class helped me warm up and be ready for the course every day. I also enjoyed the breakout rooms, as they helped us interact and complete work with the others.

Fun engaging and a good consolidation for IGCSE students

The course was an amazing opportunity to bridge the jump in the level of math from IGCSE to IB AA HL maths i feel this course hands strengthened my foundation a lot and will hep me in the near future for sure if not later on. The course was strict with deadlines and other activities which at first i felt was unnecessary but as i progressed i realised its importance and how the course is designed such that they knowledge stays with us at the least till we start our ib programmes in our respective schools. Otherwise it has been an amazing experience it takes a lot of time but it is definitely worth the time and money. Lastly I have made some new friends and had some amazing moments of laughter i shall surely remember. Thank you for an amazing time to the main instructor miss Dhingra and the teaching assistants too!

Good website overall! I would recommend more information about the curriculum and maybe a weekly structure so that students looking to register for the course would be fully aware of what it is exactly that they will be learning. Apart from that, the descriptions of the programme and knowledge extended about what is required to be a successful IB math student was spot on.

Extremely helpful, and useful course - Pre-IB Math

My name’s Aditi Ladda and I will be starting IB with Aditya Birla World Academy this summer, 2021. When I started the course, it seemed very rigorous to do 4 hours of math per day, however it got much easier with time, and I actually started to look forward to classes, and then solving the homework and tutorials, since I know that it is gonna pay off, what with the quantity and quality of the work we’ve done! Not only is it a very knowledgeable course, but also extremely engaging and interesting; I’d definitely recommend this to any student who is going to pursue IB.

An engaging and highly educational course

The course was very engaging, fun and very well structured. Despite being a long 3 week course, Ms. Dhingra managed to keep the course from being monotonous by using various teaching strategies, giving daily quizzes and engagements. I am now definitely more aware of the concepts that are going to be taught in the IB. I now know various solving strategies, working with the GDC and the in-depth understanding that IB requires. Ms. Dhingra’s passion for the subject shows while she teaches, which encourages the students to understand the nitty-gritties of the topics. Moreover, the bridge program to the course was really helpful for me since I come from a CBSE board, which is a giant leap from IB.

I enjoyed this course. I learnt many new math concepts, formulae and made new friends, all whilst having fun. Although I thought it was a really intensive course, I am happy I took part in it and absorbed something new. The teachers were friendly, helpful and understanding. I was quite surprised at how thoroughly the whole program was planned out, and how deep they went into every topic. If you’re looking for some math preparation as well as practice before your IB schooling starts, this course will definitely help you out.
