  1. Hey everyone. I'm going to take HL Chemistry and SL Biology in a couple months when I start IB. Generally, I was wondering what type of careers/university courses require Physics? I am interested in medicine but not 100% sure. I'm also thinking computer sciences. I don't want to take physics in summer school because I want to spend that time reviewing other subjects. I'm also not interested in engineering as there are not very many jobs here in that field. Thus, should it be fine not to have all 3 sciences? Any help would be appreciated!
  2. Thanks for your help! I do not plan on going internationally for university, so that's why I am debating on this. I am seeing the benefits of IB, however I am afraid that I won't "get into" university.
  3. Thank you so much for your help! And me too, I find that at times music helps me concentrate better. However, the only thing that is scaring me really are the IAS, CAS and EE. Personally, I don't want to do them (hence why I started contemplating on leaving) because I am afraid that I won't be able to handle the load of the courses and write all of these essays. I do confess that I have limited information on how they work, but I have a general idea after looking at countless forums.
  4. Wow, thank you so much for your help! I really appreciate all your points Should I be worried that the stress may lead to my poor performance?
  5. Thanks for your reply! Yes, my family is aware of it and they actually pointed it out that maybe I should consider going into academic if that helps me. I talked to my friends, and indeed they are feeling the stress too. I am not sure how they are handling it but I do know that many of us pull all-nighters, are behind in class and have to make up for it eventually.
  6. Currently I am in the MYP program in grade 10, reaching the end of this semester. However, recently for the past couple months I have been handling stress terribly. I tend to become stressed way too easily, in fear that I will mess up my grades. As such, I spend a lot of time crying which is not healthy. Additionally, I am also pulling all-nighters because I am stressed after school and cannot focus. (However my marks are not an issue.) Keeping all of this in mind, I am not sure whether I should stay for DP which will begin in a couple months. As an individual who stresses way too easily in pre-ib, is this program recommended for me? I am in fear that my mental health will be affected, which in turn may affect my overall performance in school. However, I also don't want to leave because I don't want to lose my friends, the environment and the fact that I was in IB since grade 6. (Although, I know these things are only temporary). As such, I am scared that going into a normal program might be a risky switch in grade 11. Any help will be appreciated, and thank you for taking your time to read this Sincerely, Just another stressed kid
  7. Thanks for your reply. I am a bit confused because grade 11 runs from September to June. Does this mean I will not have exams for this whole entire year?
  8. I am currently in the MYP program, and I was wondering how DP exams work. Will I have exams in grade 11 or just one in the end of grade 12? Thanks!
