IB is a demanding programme. It is valued when it comes to university admissions and during further studies at university. However, it requires more work than the regular and even AP programme considering all the IAs and the EE involved. If we focus only on the subjects and ignore all the extra activities of IB students, AP courses are less demanding than IB HL courses, and universities accept it towards credits. So, if someone is aiming for university credit, they should take AP courses.

The IB programme is one of a kind experience! It is not just about university credits! It is about developing students’ skills and getting stronger in analyzing, processing data, problem-solving and critical thinking. IB students are more prepared for university than AP students by the end of their programme, even if in some cases their courses do not count towards university credits. One of the goals of IB is to help students become lifelong learners.

The Following Points Might Help You In Your Path To Success

1. Choose subjects that you enjoy.

2. Start reviewing grade 11 material before the start of grade 12 so that you are not overwhelmed by the Mock tests.

3. Take the class tests, assignments, and individual syllabuses seriously.

4. Use the internet wisely. You can find quite a few exam papers and resources online. Do not also forget the right videos if you can not afford the right tutoring service.

5. Knowing the material is one thing, knowing the style of the exam is something else. Familiarize yourself with the exam papers and the mark schemes. Know what examiners want, but do not get caught up too much in past papers either. If you do not have the knowledge in a course, memorizing past papers will not help much.

6. Try to wrap up your IAs and EE as soon as possible and take them seriously. Senior year is tough! However, know that it is not your master’s or Ph.D. thesis, so use the guides and examples and finish them promptly.

7. You should do all of your reviews and studies before the start of the exam period so that you can focus on sample questions and quick reviews. Remember that studying fast is completely different from studying efficiently; therefore, try not to procrastinate and study as soon as possible so that you have enough time to review and do more sample questions towards the end of the year.
