Hello IBSurvival! This is my first post here but I've been reading this forum ever since I started going to a international school (March this year). Anyway, I just started my IGCSE's and so far it has been a smooth jurney, BUT today my maths teacher asked me after lesson if I would like to do additional mathematics, as I've had really good grades and on my last test I had an average of 98%. I have overall pretty good academic results, last year I've had an average of 6.7 out of all my subjects... There are only 2 people taking this class right now and so far they didn't do anything hard, but it's the beginning of the school year so they didn't really have many lessons yetâ€¦ In the future I would like to study medicine in Oxbridge or Ivy League universities in USA, and I've heared that Additional Maths would look really good on my report card and prepare me really good for the IB mathematics (at least SL). The thing is : I've heared that Additional Mathematics is a really hard subject and that many people fail it, even though they had A*'s in other IGCSE exams. This scared me a little bit even though I was confident about doing it, especially with my teacher telling me that I have the "talent" for maths. Shall I just stay with extended curriculum offer or accept the challenge and do it? Here are also the subjects that I want to choose in IB : HL Biology HL Chemistry HL French/Physics SL Mathematics SL English SL Physics/French I hope you can help me with my decision because I don't know what shall I do. Ps. I'm sorry about my spelling/grammar mistakes but English is not my mother tongue and I've been only in a polish/ german school before (I also just realized that my post looks kinda messy but as soon as I try to correct something it just gets worse)
Hi guys! As the time has come and in a few days I will be starting my IB course I just wondered if you find it vital to buy some additional history books in order to manage well with History HL course as I have seen many offers from the former IB students encouraging to buy some books that are not actually course books, like "Mastering Modern World History (...)" and so on... What would you say? And if yes, would somebody be so king and make a list of books that may come in handy to cope with all History HL stuff? I would greatly appreciate it.
