Sup pit, I'm sure some of you guys are also in IB. I just took the English A1 HL exam today (part 1) and I think I did amazing! I'll get the IB Diploma for sure. Now just History, Math, and Chinese left

This thread is also for anyone taking IB who has questions, or people who have taken IB in the past. Let's talk about IB!

i think our equivalent is TEE. which i didn't do. i left school at 16 and did a diploma in multimedia instead of year 11 and 12. i started my bachelors this year (just turned 18 now). seems to be pretty cool.

also good luck bro and well done!

Everyone at my college thinks the IB kids are wankers. However, good luck to all cause I know it's a damned difficult thing to do

There's already a thread on this. But who cares?

I too just took my English HL Paper 1 test. I totally nailed the commentary on the poem.

What are the restrictions on talking about the test?

Last year when I was a señor in high school, I had a really good IB English teacher and made a 6 on that. I was bad at Spanish and had a nice but incompetent chemistry teacher and I got my diploma. I think you'll get yours too. Good luck to everyone taking the IB exams!

We can talk about it! I did the prose piece however. The poem seemed too boring

I don't have to worry about IB exams for another 2 years! I'm already worried about my French exam though, I suck at French... bad. As proof, here are my midterm marks for the semester:
92%
90%
80%
66%
Guess which is French.

I took the Language A1 today too. I have Math SL, History HL, Chemistry SL, and Biology HL in addition to those. I hate Chemistry so goddamn much, it isn't even funny.

Does anyone know someone brave enough to take the Math HL test?

I took math HL when I did my IB in 2008. It wasn't so bad, although I had to study quite a few subjects by myself, because there was only one other guy doing Math HL. It worked out fine, but there were a lot of questions considering how short the exams were.

Did IB last year, got a score of 29. Provided that I didn't do any work and I did HL maths, I think I did alright...

Yeah, that was it. I like writing about poetry more, but this prose was easy because of all the sexual imagery.

I will next year, not going towards the diploma, though

I'm on track to take them Junior and Senior year, but being a Freshman they obviously aren't offered to me yet. Not sure if I'll just do some IB or get the whole thing, but any advice from you guys?

A lot of American Universities don't accept as many IB credits as they do AP, so keep that in mind. If I was going to do it all over again I would've taken more AP classes than I did so I could go into Uni with more credit hours

Definitely take IB English both years and IB Theory of Knowledge.

I learned a lot in IB English, though that might be because the regular English classes at my school are pretty "meh." Also, my Senior IB English teacher is awesome, which is doubly awesome when my class is abnormally small.

IB ToK is a great class if you like "out there" thinking. It might get tedious, but I like it. Most people read the phrase "discussion based class" and take it, but end up hating it. I mean, lets face it, this sort of thing is better suited to college students than high schoolers with a bunch of other things to worry about (especially if you're full IB).

Yeah, in the US, AP is more recognized. But the level of classes you're taking will contribute to your college prospects. Also, the Extended Essay (Full IB only) is good practice for college level essays.

Yeah, it wasn't really my choice, but I'll definitely keep that in mind.

Don't procestinate too much on CAS if you do it. This summer I have a ton of that to get done.
Learn to bs things, if you get something and can get away with not doing it well, don't do it. Minimal effort needed is best. The people who can't do that go crazy, they're so stressed it's unbelievable.
Take about one weekend a month to review things, an hour or two max. I wish I'd done this, especially on math.

If you do those things it isn't as people make it sound

I barely got my CAS hours done

AP might give you better college credits, but all the work you do for IB will prepare you better for the workload in college itself. APs don't do Extended Essays or TOK essays, so they're not as prepared for huge assignments like we are.

Anyways, super pumped for Math HL this afternoon. This exam is what makes it or breaks it for me in terms of uni acceptance.

Forza Juve
