IB Extra Computer Science work watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm in my first year of doing CS HL and am getting very good grades (As and Bs (can't get A*), last test got 20/21)

    My teacher keeps telling me that I need to be spending at least and hour and a half per night doing extra work (in addition to homeworks) otherwise I will never do well.

    And now because I wasn't doing this much extra work (although homeworks I do very well), she's taken all of my free periods and turned them into programming sessions.

    Has anyone else had this kind of experience and do you think it's justified?

    (Doing IB so I get 4 frees a week)

    Hmm, I didn't take CS at IB, but i'm doing CS now at university.

    I think she's exaggerating... In subjects like Chemistry HL,Math HL which are also quite hard, I got around with studying just before the test. I just studied ********* just before the final exam, and got 7's.
    It also depends how good you are at programming, have you done much beforehand ? If not, then maybe do some extra work, but not that much

    Well I do the IB and I don't have any frees so they couldn't do that to me :rage: However, the best thing to do would be to pretend that you're doing those half hours. :yes:
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
