    You'd be amazed how many people do it for pride, or just for the challenge. Then again, sometimes the IB offers more Uni options than the local syllabus. Here, for example, the Australian Certificate of Education has little respect from many of the students, and some subjects which could probably be covered in two (2) weeks. Take for example, 'Nutrition', 'Tourism', and my favourite, 'Funky Furniture'.
    If, for example you pick your subjects carefully, you stand to be accepted over a candidate with the local program, however you also stand not getting your Diploma, if you screw things up royally. It comes down to a personal choice, and your parents paying for the fees.

    There is actually a subject called... funky furniture?? That is nuts!!

    I'm doing IB because I always found regular school programmes too stupid... here, most of the time, it is quite interesting... and unlike when I was a regular 9th grader, there aren't kids asking what atoms are at the middle of the year... IB = good.

    Hah. An Australian. Well let me be more specific, this is the SACE i.e. South Australian Certificate of Education. However, it is given the same weighting as all of the other interstate exams - like the HSC - so doing these bludge subjects effectively bumps up your grade with people who did Specialist Mathematics and Sciences.
    You can imagine that in doing a subject like Funky Furniture you wouldn't have an exam. And that is true. Right now, we're in the process of doing mocks - IB people have 6 exams, 3 hours each - a SACE friend of mine finished his second exam yesterday - just so happened to be his last. So how does that compare... 18 hours to 4 (yes, both of his were only 2 hours each).
    I can only hope that universities would chose IB candidates over SACErs, otherwise - what is the point, really?
    Back to revision. Math HL mock tomorrow.

    well, I was just reading the Yale application and it said that they will allow you to substitute A levels on a one-on-one basis with SAT subject tests, but not IB exams -___-'' Not fair! :mad:
