    Hi! I'm just about to start my GCSE exams, and am feeling about as okay about them as i think it is possible to feel! Next year, I've chosen to study the IB, and i'm REALLY scared. I'm not too worried about not getting the grades, although that is niggling at the back of my mind. But, anyway, I was just wondering what the IB is like?? I do think it sounds amazing, and i'm looking forward to it, but I'm TERRIFIED. Any tips or advice? Thanks x

    Don't slack, familiarize yourself with the theory and the exam technique early on as this is key in doing well in exams. Also no homework doesn't mean no work, consolidate what you have learnt in class (this will ease revision a lot, trust me), do not underestimate any subject, exam or IA as the IB can be a little unpredictable.

    Exams may seem had but once you learn to decipher what the question is asking (especially in maths or sciences) and know your theory you should be able to answer the question easily. ToK and EE can be an easy 2/3 points if done right,

    The IB is very hard, but if you have the right attitude and work ethic (do as I said earlier in the post) then there shouldn't be anything to worry about
