  1. I have been in boarding for 5 years now! I found it so hard at first as I spoke no Spanish at the time and I was the only person in my entire year group in the boarding. I was lucky that all the older girls made me feel welcome. I went with my little sister, she was 10 and I was 12 when we joined. So it was a big responsibility for me as I had to look after her. 5 years later and in my final IB year I am still the only girl boarder in my year group but at least I can speak Spanish now! If anything this year has been the most tough because all my older friends have left and there is nobody to really relate with in the younger year groups. Also the house mother that I had for the first 4 years had to be fired because she got really angry with us all the time for no reason. In short I think boarding is a great experience if you can speak the same language, there are people of your own age to talk to and who are going through the same thing as you and if your house mother/father is kind and understanding. I was just very un-lucky, still I wouldn't take the experience back as I have learnt so much!
  2. Ok, I'll give it a go! I think my brain will be fried by the end of the IB 😅
  3. Thank you so much both of you for your advice! I am so sorry I didn't reply sooner, I was really stressed about my Biology IA, but I've done that now phewww! I really appreciate the responses. I am going to get going on revision this week and try and identify the key moments of the books and do some practice commentaries like suggested! Thanks a million, I feel a lot more confident now 😁
  4. Hi There! I have my English IOC in just under 4 weeks. I am really nervous and I feel so unprepared! In my first IB year I did the Handmaid's tale and some poetry by Wilfred Owen for the IOC. I feel I like I know these texts quite well, however I have't even looked at the Handmaid's tale since last year! Now my class has a new teacher who has no experience with the IB and we have started reading the Crucible verrrryyyy slowly as our final text but we have only just reached act 2. I am so nervous as my teacher really seems very calm about the whole thing but she can't answer a single question about any of the IB assessments without looking in her little guide book or asking another teacher. She is good at teaching the content but we are just doing it so slowly and the IOC is so soon! Does anyone have any good advice on how to prepare for the IOC in the weeks leading up to it? This weekend I am going to re-read the Handmaid's tale and see if I can read ahead a bit with the Crucible. Thanks in advance 🙂
