    What do u think? I mean all we do is memorize terms that most of them we won't need in life.

    I agree that it's quite a useless subject; the majority of the questions are more logical thinking than really knowing a lot. It will be especially easy for you if you've had previous experience with computers/technology.

    Unless you are into ethical use of technology and such, ITGS is a really useless subject.

    I took ITGS and found it really easy (got a 7 in HL), and also a very fun class since it was so little work. Nevertheless, I know the statistics for that subject are very low, with barely anyone getting a 7. This is because people think the subject is easy, but you really have to be interested in technology and know all the current events to do well.

    And I don't think it's pointless, it teaches you the ever more growing importance of technology in our lives, and what problems we encounter with them (privacy, security, etc).

    The difficult thing about ITGS is that it so highly depends on the teacher as there is no clear syllabus. Some might get a teacher that makes the lessons very interesting, but others might get a teacher who doesn't even know what he/she is supposed to teach.

    HAHAHA i am so emailing this link to all of my 6 ITGS classmates... we all agreed that it is the most pointless subject... but because we are the first year IB students in our school, there are only 3 subject to choose from in group 3 - economics, history and ITGS. So id rather memorise definitions and score highly in ITGS than do eco or history and not do as well.
