    ya, coz exams are generally over 2 days for one subject, and first session is in the afternoon followed by the second in the morning. Afternoon on friday would give too big of a gap

    haha...I was thinking more along the lines of how the IB wanted to give their "dear" students a break...a nice "relaxing, long weekend" would do the exam takers good... :rolleyes:

    trust me, you don't have to be smart to do the IB...true, that person may not be getting straight 7s but they can still do it, AND pass! (I am an example here...)

    If I come across as being mean and sarcastic the credit goes to the IB exams... sorry about that!
    In answer to your question, the IB is for anyone who is interested enough to go through the two year course...

    No not at all, there are quite a few schools in the uk that do the IB because they think it better than a levels, anyone can do them really, as long as you speak fluently english, french or spanish
