Revision isn’t easy – so here are our suggestions of apps to help you focus your efforts and to do you very best!

Supercharge your phone with apps to help you keep your focus.

Juggling six subjects is a unique burden only IB students have to bear. It’s important to take every opportunity to make revision easier, so we’ve compiled our favourite apps to help make your IB revision easier!


Free, Mac only | Website

It can be easy to get distracted when you’re trying to revise. SelfControl lets you set a list of websites to block (Did someone say Instagram? Twitter?) and a timer for how long you want to be barred from using them. It’s pretty much full-proof: restarting your computer, quitting the app, you still can’t access those websites until your time’s up!

Only blocking websites for a little while, a short break every hour or so can help revision!

Focus Keeper Free

Free | iPhone

The Pomodoro technique is a well-known way to structure your time which involves 25-minute working sessions and 5-minute breaks. It’s a great way to make sure you’re not working too hard and to avoid burning out.

ScreenTime on iOS

(Free, iPhone/iOS only, Available from Autumn 2018)

SelfControl is great for avoiding websites, but if you have Instagram on your phone it’s not much help. If you have an iPhone Apple’s new ‘Screentime’ feature lets you set daily or weekly limits for any particular app. You can use it to ration your time and make sure you’re not spending too much time looking at your phone when you should be revising!

Giving yourself a reasonable amount of time to enjoy an app during breaks, like 30 minutes a day.
Get your friend or parents to set your Screentime password so you don’t just turn it all off in the settings when you want to check your feed!

No surprise here: Evernote is the notetaking app for anyone and everyone who needs to take notes often. With notes syncing across devices, the ability to search text in photos, reminders, and notations, it’s one of the most powerful tools for keeping on top of your notes for class!

Compiling quotes and the best bits from your IB Literature books:

I finished this a couple of weeks ago and now working through cataloguing quotes/insights in Evernote. It is one of the best works of philosophical and theological anthropology I’ve ever read. Truly masterful.
