So I might be moving to Australia. I live in Ethiopia now, and go to an international school. I will start IB here after summer. The problem is that in Australia their school year starts in January. I have two options, or take the first half year of IB 1 here and take IB 1 and 2 there, or do IB 1 in half a year here, and do IB 2 there. I really like the last one, but I don't know if it is possible or even allowed. Does anyone know? I don't mind the work, I will work as hard as I can, I just need to know if I can actually do this?
Normally schools only submit student subjects at the end of year 1.. So technically it's possible. But you will have missed a lot! And ib is hard to deal with as it is. I had the same problem, I was coming from South Africa to England, and the college I applied for wouldn't let me skip 5 months so I just took a " gap year " kinda thing. I honestly think its up to your school, so youll have to talk to them!
BUT you could start half way through, and then at the end if it's too much, just start IB 1 again or the other way round!
You have got to be kidding me! You will not be able to do IB1 in 3-4 months. Repeat the first half of the year, or just don't do anything for the half a year in your home country, and do the whole lot in australia.
