Question: IB community

Hi guys, former student and current tutor here. I just wanted to get an idea of how important it is for you guys to discuss IB matters with students outside of your school? Obviously this website is a massive help, but do you contact IB students in any other manner? Do any of you use the reddit IB page to ask questions?

Thanks!

I think it's very important to discuss IB stuff on online forums, which are extremely helpful, especially if the school that one goes to is a bad IB school. People use online forums for all sorts of things, like sharing resources, asking for IB rules, motivating each other, asking for advice, etc. However, I think people shouldn't try to overuse it. Like I have seen several people copying the whole idea of someone else on this forum, or when people ask for too much help to do their homework, which is bad for the learning itself because it prevents people from using their own 'thinking caps'.

 

I personally didn't use reddit when I did the IB. However, a friend of mine used it and he said it was extremely good. For me, I think both websites provide enormous help for students. Reddit is excellent with resource sharing because there's virtually no 'censorship' over there, and people share all kinds of stuff (from past exam papers, subject notes, to the whole IB textbooks). On the other hand, IBS is much better with asking for advice as IBS members put lots of efforts to make a good post on IBS. Discussions on IBS are usually more fruitful and serious as well.

I came across to Reddit past paper bank when searching for free excercises from internet, and I think that is useful.
