Maria Cunha - Best IB Score (42)
I chose the IB Diploma due to the freedom of choice regarding the subjects and its advantage over other courses when going abroad. Additionally, you gain skills that will be very useful in university life.
The IB is a vastly interesting course – there was never a dull moment. The most important lesson I learned was that, when dealing with a difficult task or subject, all you need is a change of perspective, and this does require help sometimes. While a worthwhile experience, the IB Diploma can get challenging at times. My advice to a new student starting the IB Diploma would be to take breaks, talk to your classmates and, when you feel refreshed, get back to working on homework. Create a rewards system when studying as well because it can lead to surprising results. Other than that, I would advise new students to use their time well and give it their best shot in every assignment – it pays off!
