IB students, do you relate to non-Ib highschool students more or college students?

Recommended Posts

As a freshman in college now, I can say that when I was in IB, I thought I related more to college students. But now I know that I really didn't. College is a different lifestyle entirely.

 

Though, I should mention that the IB work was harder than the academic work in college, so far.

I relate to them on a very superficial level.

not so much when it comes to academic work, since our school does AS as well, which is a British program. 

But more with having to wake up early, and deal with the drudgery of having to start school at 7:00am basically

i think if my school did AP, I might be able to relate to the students more on an academic level.

but I still think that Ib is more challenging than AP, considering that we have to do TOK, CAS and the extended essay.

School is so much different than university, so I'm not sure if you can really relate to college/university students in any real sense, to be honest. 

Also, I genuinely have no idea where this "IB is college level" and "IB is more difficult than uni" stuff is coming from. The natural order of things is that the next step in your education is more challenging than the previous one. Expecting it to be the other way round is, frankly, naive. IB is a challenging HIGH SCHOOL programme, that might or might not prepare you for university better than other programmes (personally, I found IB useful), but is not university level itself. IB describes it as a pre-university programme, which it is.
