Firstly, there are 54 ib students, out of which 40+ have an ib predicted of over 38/42 .. mines 40... but thats cuz im jus a genius not a nerd...

Secondly, they jus keep on studyin... in my first year my ib score was a 27... i didnt do **** and now everythin is gettin to me... i have to fukkin stay upp forever to complete my work... Its crazy, its pathetic, it suxss.... :eek:

Honestly although ib is the right way to go (according to many people).... what is it worth.... it ****s up ur social life... ur LIFE in general... and just abt everything else...

this maybe isn't much comfort but IB is only two years (and they go by fast even though it doesn't seems so) and after they are over you can do whatever you want, especially if you are predicted a 40. what are you going to read at uni?

AAA the good old ib thread, i ve been geting mails for ages about new posts decided i will show up to tease you all the IB is overrated boys and girls, to proove i did in 1 year while you all are doing in 2, and i spend most of that year not really studying in fact i got the award for the guy that did the least and got more points than most people. But to stop it there I wont tease with how much i got, i got enough to go to trinity college dublin to do business economics and social studies and got enough to get the prize for academic achievements in french b hl. I also could have go doing International Relations with political science in the uk got a firm offer, but decided to be in dublin instead. So there we go IB is overrated and i wish you all the best of luck in your work. Try to have fun most of all. The ib nerds is created by you and only you can proove it wrong. The only regret i have is i miss my friends :'(

and if someone is wondering no im not a genius or anything like that, i am just me. For the record i was really expecting some fancy diploma from teh IB instead i got a flying peace of paper printed on a goold old matrice printer.

Try to forgive me for my arrogance, atleast i have something behind me to be arrogant for , no really no hard feelings. Its annoying i know, just do what you feel its right to do. If anyone needs help feel free to ask me, try pming cause the next time i might check the threads might be in who knows when. Have fun and enjoy, just remember its not that hard!

ya maybe ur right but these two years have really been hard on me... cuz like ive had to make the transition from a hard core party animal to barely being able to party and havin to study all the time..... whenver i sit down with my work i jus cant get started... its soo harrowing...n i see my friends (who arent doin the ib) like once in a month or so...

the only reason y im not quittin the ib or killin myself is that i know later on it wont be soo hard... but i jus feel ib shouldnt bee sooo intense... it really stresses everyone out...

[IB 1st or 2nd year?] 2nd

[Subjects, specify if HL or SL]
-Spanish
-English
-Biology
-Economics
-Math Studies
-Arts

I don't know which ones are HL and SL, I didn't chose them, I didn't even chose the subjects, the school did, the only option I had was wether to take Arts or Italian, and as I don't know any Italian, and my classmates have been studying the language since 4th grade, I decided on Arts.

[Strongest Subjects] I think English, and Spanish, and maybe Maths.

[Extended Essay Topic] I may do it in history, but I haven't chosen a topic yet.

I'm actually starting next year (in march) and I have to do everything in that year, but I have been to a couple of classes to get an idea of how it will be. The only think I don't like so far, is that my school won't let me chose my own subjects, but I think most IB schools are like that here (Argentina)

I turned to spend a lot of time here hehe, but maybe the school doesn't offer many subjects. Very few around the world offer all the ib subjects. So it's probable that the choices availible are 0 well 2 either italina or arts

they don't offer all the subjects at so many schools. but this is the first time i have heard that you couldn't choose any subjects. (except art then) i had to read biology cause that was the only subject in that group that the school offered.

I heard that my school used to offer history too until last year, but later they decided economics was more useful, and that it didn't matter much as we already have argentine history anyway.
