  1. Sup people of the IB. I found a short guide that I wrote a while ago that deals with stress and procrastination. I'll add more to it later (the irony but it is late ) so hopefully it's helpful. There's more to come if I remember Stress Firstly stress at school is mainly caused by lack of organisation. So sorting that out could half or even eliminate your 'i want to rip the hair out of my head' feeling! How to organise work: Invest in a folder if you write notes with a note book and use folder separators to make things easier.This makes losing notes a lot less likely because they are in a named folder. Plus it makes you feel really professional If you're feeling that things are getting to you, just step back for a little bit and think. You don't need to be getting overly stressed because that hinders your work and can result in tears, this isn't helpful to your development because it lowers your confidence. Try drinking some water, taking a short break from revision or going for a walk. Clear your mind. Procrastination This thing is horrible. I hate it loads and i have a half decent way of sorting it out. Just know that you cannot get rid of it completely otherwise you'll probably end up not enjoying life. No one can seize EVERY SINGLE opportunity they have to work. It's just not realistic haha The reason why procrastination happens is because there are two parts of your brain that helps this. ( I cannot remember their names, forgive me for that) One part see's the short term benefit of everything, like going on facebook or staring into the sky. This part is much bigger than the part that see's the long term benefit of working now. Plus the long term benfit part (the determined one) gets tired quickly. Ok, imagine yourself as two people. 'present' you, and 'future' you. 'Present' you wants to put off work and say i'll do it tomorrow until your you've started everything too late. This would make you think, 'yea i promise i'll do it tomorrow but now i'll watch tv' or 'now i'll stare at pictures of yoda riding a cat'. Do you notice this trend? It happens a lot. What you need to remember is that, it isn't now you that will be feeling the consequences of your procrastination, it'll be future you. (i hope this is making sense so far) You need to look to future you and think that you want to have less work so you'll do it now. Procrastination isn't because you're lazy, it's because you're weak in the sight of distractions (that sounds mean but everyone gets distracted for the reason i stated above) Keep your work neat.You don't want to be revising and realise that you cannot read half of anything that you've written. Some care will go a long way.You don't need to write full sentences when making notes, just something that can remind you what was taking place in class.Try organising your work daily.This further reduces the chances of losing sheets and notes, hole punch it and keep it safe. You'd be surprised how much they can help Lessen the distractions!Disable facebook or move the facebook app from the homepage of your phoneMute your computer so you aren't hearing all sorts of notificationsClear the cookies from your computer so you have to enter your password in everytime you want to log into something (but make sure you remember them haha) This makes logging into stuff an added effort so you're more inclined to just not bother and start your work.And if you need to just ban yourself from IBS and TSR (if you use it too)Give yourself motivation!Put pictures up of what you want to achievePlan a little treat you can have ONLY if you've completed a certain amount of work... not if you've done something for a specific timeIt's too easy to say 'i've read for half an hour, time to chill'. You could've just been sitting there [*]Look into what you want to do and what you need to do to get there My next point is that not all procrastination is bad! So when you feel lazy instead of refreshing the facebook homepage, read an article from the news or a page from a book relating to your subjects. Plus don't mistake procrastination for having a break, breaks are good! they keep your sanity in tact Ok the end is here! After multiple facebook references, unnecessary emoticons, incomplete sentences and poor humour that is. I really do hope someone finds this helpful as this took me a while to write but maybe it'll be worth it Just remember, a little stress isn't bad and taking breaks isn't the same as procrastination. I'll be adding more to this as things come to me. **** Here is a prioritized to do list: PrioritizedToDolist.pdf You list all your tasks and label them A - F, with A being the most important and anything after D generally something you can put off until you've finished everything before that. Stay concentrated and it won't seem like that much of a daunting task!
  2. Hi, I just transferred into IB this year (grade 11) and am still adjusting to the school. I have heard rumors from grade 12s about how crammed their first semester is, and I am worried that I won't be able to manage my time wisely when I get into grade 12. I was going to take IB Japanese, but I had to move it to my grade 12 year because my Japanese is currently not good enough yet. For next year's first semester, I will have History, IB Japanese 11, Math HL, Physics HL, Chemistry SL, and English HL/TOK. I currently volunteer at a salmon hatchery and work part time at McDonald's. I am also on the cross-country team and track and field. In February, I will also start volunteering at a local hospital. So far, I have managed to balance my school life and my extracurricular activities, but I'm not sure if I can survive grade 12 without dropping any of them. Do you guys think I should drop an HL course, my volunteering, my job, or something else?? Also, please give some advice on time management
  3. Hey I am starting the IB programme in a couple of months and, even though I literally scanned Google for tips on time management, I'd love to get advice from fellow students. Also, I'd appreciate any help on how to survive my classes, but especially Math HL. I'm taking: Math HL, Physics HL and German HL and Modern Greek and Literature SL, Economics SL and Biology SL. Greek was mandatory Thanks :))
  4. Hi everyone! So my first year of IB Diploma Program is about to end, and I have a lot to do over this summer. I just want to know if anyone has any time management tips, advice, or any sort of system of how you juggle school work, house work, socializing, exercising and everything else... Thank you!
  5. Teachers say that completing the extended essay as soon as possible is a must, however seniors at my school think otherwise. Most of the seniors told me that it is better to wait till the end of first year so that you can putmore ideas and decide the topic.
