Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
I know quite a few people who have done it. IMO it is a shitload more work for little benefit over normal school (FYI, im from NZ.). It all depends on YOU though... how badly do you want to do it? is it really necessary? how much benefit will you get from it in the future?
ok so the IB program is getting ass raped from NS right now..
I am a full IB kid and a lazy bastard as well, and I am in no way gifted.. And I seam to be doing ok.. it doesnt seem like that much of a load. I guess I dont know what standard level is like but I only do about a hour of HW a night, plus about once a week I have a 3 hour HW sesh... I dont reallvy think Its that bad.. but then again looking back I dont know if I would have done it again.. I probably would have dual enrolled and got some of my stupid general knowledge stuff done at the local JC.
all in all the IB program can be a bitch if you are the insain kind of person that has to get a 100% in every class.. I am happy with a 85% in my IB classes (fuck spanish though 71%) but the 85% set me up with damn near a 4.0 GPA.. so I guess its ok for me because I am not trying to get into a ivory league school.. I just do it for the elevated classes. and I figure that If I am going to try and get a scholorship for a cycling college that a Full IB kid is probably going to look good at a cycling school.
haha yea see I am definatly not that smart :P and I still manage IB
in my defense I am normally not such a dumbass.. normally..
IB= waste of time
dropping it already
