This may come as news to you, but many universities – in the U.S. for sure – ask you to submit transcripts from 9th grade onwards. These would be MYP 4 and MYP 5 final year-end scores which are considered in college admissions. So, It’s not just e-Assessment at the end of MYP 5 that’s important; even your end of year MYP 4 scores count. Since academic scores for the four school years – 9 to 12 – are the number one criterion in college admissions, you can understand why you should take MYP seriously. We do.
While many schools, even the big ones, have struggled to make the transition to MYP, Uwezo Learning has been creating satisfied customers in this area. It’s a shame that many schools simply used IGCSE material and question papers for their MYP students. However, Uwezo staff spent several weeks creating MYP-type question bank from scratch. With limited resources, this was not an easy task to accomplish. But then, we’re Uwezo Learning: We are used to overcoming obstacles that others find impossible to tackle.
Why Uwezo Learning for IBDP? It’s very simple. We’ve been at it for almost 10 years, more time than most schools have been in this business. Here’s the ultimate testimonial for our expertise: our teachers, after fulfilling their contractual obligations with Uwezo Learning, move on to teach at top IB schools! Enough said.

Uwezo Learning’s SAT coaching involves a total of 52 hours of in-class instruction, followed by up to 12 or 15 mocks (Please see Why Uwezo SAT). First, 40 hours are spent on covering SAT English and SAT Math. After 3 mocks are done by all students, another 12 hours (six for Math and six for English) are dedicated to focusing on problem areas as a group, with the help of Omar™. After coaching is complete, practice entails doing 12 to 15 mocks with an average of four hours per mock. Reviews are provided for the mocks to identify areas of improvement and clear doubts.
Uwezo Learning offers Subject SAT training in Math, Physics and Chemistry. While the number of hours of teaching varies by subject, it is about 20-25 hours of classroom instruction followed by several mocks. Like our SAT offering, Subject SAT mocks are also analysed, and a detailed report provided – by using Omar™ – for you to understand areas of weakness. Most of our students score a perfect 800 in Subject SATs, with an average score of 790.
