    So I applied for the IB program and personally think it's a good program for me. The school that I'm applying to does not have an entrance exam (Turner Fenton SS in Ontario).All you have to do is submit your Grade 7 final report card results, your Grade 8 progress report card, and answer 2 questions.1. Choose one IB learning profile characteristic that best describes you.Explain why. 2. How are you going to make the world a better place? (not exact question) I believe that my responses were one of the best paragraphs I wrote in my life, so I'm not worried about them. I mentioned that I recently came in second place in my provincial spelling bee, and hopefully, that'll help me out.

    I'm worried about my Grade 7 final report card ruining things for me. Last year, due to my horrible math/sci/homeroom teacher, I got a 75% average in math (I've been getting straight A's in math for my whole life) and a 71% in science (I have gotten better grades in science, but it's not one of my strongest subjects) the rest of my marks were all 80's and up (except for drama) and were especially good in Language and History/Geography and French. My homeroom/sci/math teacher also burdened me with G's (only 2 E's) in the learning skills category. (I've been getting E's my whole life) My Grade 8 progress report card is amazing though, (progressing VERY well in everything but drama) and so are my learning skills (all excellent).

    So do you think I at least have a fair chance of getting accepted? Also, what do you think they will look more closely at? (Grade 7 Final Report Card, Grade 8 Progress Report Card or my application?) Any answers will be greatly appreciated as I am stressing over this way more than I should be. Thanks!
