But the thing is that it really prepares you well for anything you want to take up later... So you're equalized to take up whatever you want!


Wayy higher actually. I take IB High Level Math and it's stuff that people do in first years in indian unis and second-third years in us unis. Plus, you have to do optional modules which  for me at least, were NOT fun. I got sets, relations and groups...oh well..

you're right about english but it's fun. I take A1 High Level English and I love dissecting novels into different bits..lol

so really, take it if you can work hard and choose your subjects and level VERY carefully

yea, i believe in myself and i know that i can live up to IB..it's just that i was thinking if i should take the classes but not do the program

thanks..it's nice to hear from you since you're in the program. Smile


see, if u take all the IB classes.. then you will get the diploma which will benifit you a LOT. help u get lots of scholarships, save  alot of  ur money in uni.. because u wont have to repeat the courses  as u would have already done it in highschool, you will get the "bump up" in all classes ..which i think is the BEST part of IB.


 BUT  u will have to work hard. theres no other way around it..i personally found grade 10 Ib quite easy.. but grade 11 IB.. is very very overwheliming and  alot of stress.
u will also have to do CAS..  i dunno the full lform.. but its certain kind of volunteer activities that u need to do to get the diploma.. if u only decide to take some Ib classes..then  u wont have to do it.

also  if ur weak at one subject.. like ..  for example... english is my weakest subject.. if i do regular enlisgh  i will have to work a little hard to get a 90 but in Ib english.. i have to work twice as much for an 82.. which brings my overal average down. thats the difference.
i have mostly seen people in partial scoring better than those who r in full IB. .. because obviously full IB involves a lot more hardwork.  for partial i think u need to have minimum of 4 IB classes to still be in the IB program.

u can go from full Ib to partial.. but u cant go from partial to full. so i would say challenge yourself ..   if u dont like it, then drop it later on, but then u will atleast know u tried. rest is upto u.
