    Is any Year 10 going into 11 considering doing the IB after the GCSEs, or am I one of the only ones, hahahah
    To be honest, I wouldn't worry too much what others are doing when considering it... My personal opinion is that IB is absolutely great for some people, and not for others... Personally, I knew what I wanted to narrow down on, so doing IB wasn't right, but for some people who didn't have so much of an idea, doing IB helped them keep their options open...

    It's still quite a minority of people doing it (in 2013, 1.2% of pending uni applications were IB, but up from 0.8% previous year), but you won't be the only person doing it wherever you go most likely, and if it's what you think you should do, then go for it imo!
