    First art:
    I heard that it is difficult but I not taking it so cant say anything more.

    -DO AS MUCH AS YOU CAN ON THE FIRST YEAR. I hjave deadlines for EE, TOK essay, Math project next week and i'am not finished with any of them.
    -Do as much CAS in first year as possible especially service and creativity. Action is easy to do.
    -Do not leave any work for summer vaction. You wont do it. Trust me
    -Chem HL, Math HL, two hardest subjects in IB
    -This is hardest thing to do - study 30 minutes everyday any subject no matter which one. I suggest most difficult ones.. Ofcourse above what you are required.

    I would say that it's good to work regularly and not just before tests/exams.

    learn what kind of teacher you have, like a teacher who uses alot of I.B questions, a teacher who likes alot of projects, a teacher who favours those who suck up, if you know what kind of teacher you have then that will help you survive

    Do as much CAS in the first year as humanly possible. I finished my CAS after my first year which relieved the pressure for me this year.

    What ever EVER you do, DONT procrastinate...that's academic suicide. Suddenly you end up with about 5 deadlines and you're haven't done any of them. The teachers might help you with your internal assignments but they can't keep chasing after you. You have to know what needs to be done and do it.

    My school reccommends 4 hours of work on each subject per week outside class and at least 2.5 hours of homework every night (or something like that)

    Realise that you have no social life in the 2nd year, what with deadlines and work and revision. Bear it with. It will be over soon. (To quote my teacher: "Life? What life? You don't have a life until June!" )

    I think the most important thing in IB is to finish the ee on time as well as TOK essay and to study the hl subjects at most, everything else is less important
