  1. Hi, So Iv'e been offered by my IB coordinator to take one of my subjects online through Pamoja, as my subjects did not align with my schools subject lines. I'm not sure whether I should take it or not. My subjects are: HL English LangLit HL Global Politics HL Economics SL Biology SL Maths AI SL Spanish ab initio I would be taking HL Economics online. This is so that I could take both Global Politics and Economics together, which I could not do without the online course. Without the online course, I would have a class for Economics and would have to replace HL Global Politics (probably with HL psychology). I probably want to study international security / international relations at university. Has anyone had experience with doing the online classes through Pamoja, and would you recommend it? Is it worth it to study online, or will it be an unnecessary stress to not have a face to face class? Any recommendations? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. Hi, If you are looking to enjoy the subject and gain knowledge and skills in analysis and essay writing, go for English A HL. Sometimes enjoying the content, the class and the teacher can actually make you more motivated to learn and study. You will be challenged more in English A, and then you will come out of the IB with better skills, if that would be favourable. However, if you are only looking to get an easy high score on your diploma, without as much reading and literature as English A, pick English B HL. More time in the IB is a valid point, because of the workload and college requirements, so if that is more important to you make sure that is a high priority when making the decision, also just make sure you can handle your other language as a language A if you do this. Also, if you really can't decide, you can email / call / talk to someone at Oxford and see if they have a preference of which they would want you to study. Good luck
  3. Hi ! I don't know too much but I can give you some advice, I would say that moving to another country in DP2 would definitely be a risky move if school and your final mark is important to you. Your exchange school may not have the same courses that you are doing, so that would be extremely difficult . It can also even be very hard to pick up different teaching styles over a limited time and while the actual content may be the same, the delivery of the content may not be consistent and that may be hard for you when studying for your exams. I would say that a move would almost definitely be disruptive to your studies. I went on a short exchange to Canada (only 1 month) in year 10 and it was definitely an amazing experience. However, it was very disruptive to me and I felt it very hard to catch up on the work I had missed and hard to adapt to the teaching styles. And that was only 1 month in year 10 so I definitely think it would be very hard for you to move to another country in your final year of schooling. Just consider these options when making your final decision
  4. Hi! I definitely think there are things to do before starting the IB that could help you when you start. I don't know too much but here are some things that could help - Organise and have an idea of what activities you will be doing for CAS in advance - Print out your syllabuses and have a read to get your head around the content - Organise all of your books and folders to use for school work and homework etc. These websites may also help - https://www.lanternaeducation.com/ib-blog/starting-the-ib/
