    Well, we were about 8 kids in HL Math last year but then 6 of them left because they didnt need the IB (they were doing the local Kazakh programme). so we are just two Math students, and so the HL and
    Methods class are together...
    Only girl in the Math class! But would it be any better if you had another girl with you?
    The largest class I take is Biology, we are 4 students! Woohoo!
    Haha, largest class has 4 students My largest class is History. Everyone who takes History is taking HL coz our teacher said there's not much difference between the two levels. There are 18 ppl. Last year there were around 21 (some ppl left) and the teacher kept on groaning about what a large class we were :P There were sometimes a shortage of books!!

    hehe...see? I wasnt exaggerating!!! (;
    18 is a nice number, I am used to classes that have 19-25 students which was great! And now it just feels as if too many people are absent every day! Its the second year now I so I am kind of used to the idea but....! (:
    How small is your smallest class though? (I am the only student in French ab...hehe..couldnt get much worse could it?)
    And anyone else who reads this, how big are your biggest classes and how small are your smallest ones?? (:
    (Just curious....!)

    My smallest class is Biology SL. We have 8 ppl. It's so small and open and it's my favourite class! I hate classes with lots of ppl....I honestly think i'll enjoy history more if there were less ppl in it.

    Oh not really. The physics book can be yours for just £90 and then you have 5 other subjects plus all the books you have to read in your language subjects. Add to this that we have a £700 fee just to do the IB course and you can figure where this is going... Then of course, we have to do all the CAS activities on our spare time, which means.. EXACTLY, we have to pay more money... Ok! Norway might have among the highest wages in the world, but then Oslo is also the most expensive town to live in (sometimes chalanged by Tokyo ). My bus card which is due for three months cost me £80 or so. Im not certain where the currency is at now, but this was when the currency was £1 = 10 NOK.

    We get books from the school, they're too expensive for us to pay for them ourselves. And then we just return them at the end of the year and you have to pay if you seriously damaged the books or something. But it's a pretty good system and it has worked for a lot of generations...

    Our school's German class has 2 people: that's the smallest class I know of...

    That's pretty hard....great going! (:
    We have to take our books from the library and if you lose them or damage them you have to replace that by either paying(which is not a good idea because the shipping costs and customs double the original price) or getting them new books.
    But the only thing is that we pay USD10,000 for doing the IB so...
