    Hello,

    I'm in my second year for IB now and the exams are in like 2 months. For me IB has been somewhat a horrendous course for me which and I'm currently just scraping by. I actually originally chose to do A-levels because I thought I wasn't capable of doing the IB - then I changed my mind at the last minute.

    Thankfully I have had 4 achievable offers from my university choices and I'm waiting on the 5th reply. A small part of me thinks that I wouldn't have gotten those offers if I didn't do the IB (because of the rise in applicants and the fact that I don't really stick out much when it came to my statement/grades). I think that I should be regretful of something but I am not really. Apart from the course, the people I'm with are great and I have good memories. My only regret is that I should have started revising earlier, but lots of people think that.

    Just wondering if anyone else is in a similar situation like me or has any regrets. :bunny2:

    Finished IB. Regret-- getting a 4 in SL Chem because I had to write 2+ papers on every exam day before that and had no time for a last minute review. :P

    So check your IB exam schedules and make sure you don't get messed up.

    Yepp, I believe my city was the only city to have 2 IB schools, so they merged them together and so we got a new CAS supervisor. And well yea I told my new one that I was already done and that my old CAS supervisor had already confirmed everything (which she had done without checking it out), so yeah pretty sweet hahaha

    what the hell? thats pretty awesome if I got to do that but im really jealous

    i wonder how much useless crap ive done just so i can get those 150 damn hours signed off

    to OP: i dont regret taking IB at all - i considered moving to another school just so i could do A levels cause our school only offers IB. But I stayed in the end 'cause I didn't really want to move schools or anything - and I've got some pretty nice offers for uni now And on top of all that I met my current girlfriend at a CAS trip so how awesome is that

    That's great! For CAS I'm currently going to badminton sessions - it's full of old people. Not sure if I'll find love there
