Are there any tips or tricks that you can give me? or any websites and books you recommand? Does studying the ontario curiclum book help? Is there any books I should read before starting? What should I do to make sure that I can have the best year possible? I espacially want to get a headstart for math, literature and science. Is there any special oppurtunities to do In pre-Ib to make your university application stand out? Thank you for your
  2. Hi everyone, I'm currently in 8th grade and I am planning on taking both the St. Robs and Bayview entrance exam into their ib programs. Can someone please explain to me how the exam is broken down, what can I expect, and what are my chances for getting in? (roughly 700 students apply to each school every year, only around 250 get accepted). For Bayview, I have an average of around 88% from my grade 7 final term, and a solid teacher recommendation. How well do I have to perform on the test in order for me to get into the program?? St.Roberts only relies on the test scores, im pretty s
  3. I am applying to Colonel By this year as well but what math exercise r we doing this year? PLZ help me if anyone knows. Is it still the CAT? On the website it said it is a timed math exercise. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO AS PRACTICE THIS YEAR? Sorry I'm having panic attack rn. PLS HELP.
  4. Dear reader, I am currently a grade 11 student in Ontario who has never taken pre-IB courses or any IB courses for that matter. However, starting in my second semester of my junior year, I plan on switching out my regular courses for IBDP courses (HL CHEM, HL BIO, HL ECON or HL PHYSICS, or MATH AA SL) as a certificate student. I wanted to know the following: 1. How does SL Biology and SL Chemistry compare to Normal Ontario Biology and Chemistry. I heard that it would actually be harder to succeed in the Ontario equivalents compared to the IBDP SL equivalents. Is this true?
  5. Hi everyone! I have a lot of free time on my hands these days, and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for Math textbooks, websites or study guides that follow the grade 9 Ib curriculum? I wanted to see what subjects I haven't studied yet and which ones I'll have an easy time with. It'd be cool if you even name the textbook you used..... Tips for other subjects are appreciated too! Thank you!

    hi, I am still very unsure of what subjects I want to do in ib, and what I wanna do in the future, if you have any tips to pick subjects pls let me know
  7. Hello! So, I know it's probably too early to be thinking about this (considering I haven't even started High School yet) but I want to participate in an international student exchange program in Grade 10. I would be more interested in applying in Grade 9, but you must be 15 and up. I searched for a topic containing something related to a student exchange program on the forum and couldn't find anything, so I'm guessing this isn't too popular with IB students. I'm going to start Grade 9 in a couple of months and have been accepted and enrolled in a Pre-IB/MYP pr

    ib help

    hi, what are some good textbooks to use while studying biology hl in ib
  9. Hi, these are my options so far... HL: Physics, Biology, English SL: Econ, Spanish, Maths AA I'm worried about taking two sciences at HL. No one at my school has done that before and I'm afraid it's going to be too difficult (I want to get a good grade of ib). I am fascinated by physics and biology, plus I am thinking about going to medical school or studying physics so I know that both courses will help me decide what I want to study. Has anyone taken two sciences at HL or do you know anyone who has? I welcome any suggestions! Thank you
  10. I took my IB entrance exam today (St. Robert CHS) and I don't think I did so well - I guessed an answer from the mathematics section and left one question unanswered, and I don't think I did the greatest in the language section. I also didn't have much time to check over my answers, and barely skimmed through my math answers before time was up I'm going to garner a guess and say that about 800 students applied this year, and from the previous year, there were 5 IB classes, so if there were about 30 students in each class, about 150 were accepted. St. Robert CHS will look at a small writing sa
  11. Hello, so I'm in my final year of MYP (myp5) or pre-ib and am currently in the process of selecting/confirming our subjects for the IB. Here are my subjects I am planning to pick but I still don't know which option to pick: HL: Chemistry, Biology, Humanities Subject (thinking about picking Economics)/English Language and Literature SL: Math AA, German B, Humanities Subject (thinking about picking Economics)/English Language and Literature I'm very nervous at the moment because I know my subject choices will impact my university application. I'm for sure planning to study science
  12. I am moving to a new IB school in Canada during the middle of ninth grade. In my old school I did Advanced Algebra 2 in 9th grade. Do they have an option of continuing on that path or do I have to start at algebra 1? I also was doing French 2 at that school. Can I countinue that?
  13. Hi, I am an 8th grader and I have been planning to go into the IB program once I am a junior. At the high school I am going to go, you are required to be in the Pre-IB/ Scholars program to register into the actual IBDP. A lot of my friends have told me not to and that I will have no social life if I do this. However, I knew someone who did the IBDP while playing basketball and working. I would like to know if it is really as burdening as people make it sound. (I know it is different for everyone depending on personal choices) I would also like to know what subjects would be best for me to take
  14. Hello! I am starting my first year of pre-IB in two weeks or so (the fourth of September) and I’m quite anxious about it. I’ve been doing a lot of math sheets and reading material that the school has suggested all pre-IB students do. I’m just wondering if anyone has any advice for me, or any advice specifically for pre-IB students. Basically, anything you’ve done in pre-IB that was stupid that (hopefully) I can avoid. Thanks!
  15. What is the difference between a fully authorized IB programme and a school that is an IB Candidate? Does it make an impact on whether or not I get my diploma or the education in general?
  16. Okay so I'm in 10th grade going into JR year after this summer and I'm doing the IB obvi these classes are set - HL - PSYC and SL - Mandarin and Lang & Lit Now I'm deciding between where to place math (ive always been good at math getting A's but last year I didn't pay much attention and barely got an A (also my school doesnt have A-'s so i wouldve gotten a B+)) Then after that I have to decide where to place chem and if i should take bio or physics (still in limbo are chem, bio or physics and math ) - HOW hard are these classes I took AP US history
  17. Glenforest SS Entrance Exam Grade 8 --> Grade 9 I have heard and read a lot of different things like that there are a french, math and English exam. Some say you only need to write a page about why your right for this program and a 1-hour long math test that's based on the grade 7 and 8 math curriculum that just like Gauss and you half an hour to complete it. I'm applying for IB in glen forest SS, however, idk what to study I want this summer to my advantage to study I have already planned math and language, however, nothing on French. we got our report cards today and my average was a

  19. Hi all, I just wanted to know how difficult it's going to be for me to study and succeed in IB. I'm currently studying in grade 10 and I'll most probably start studying according to IB's curriculum next year. I'm currently studying the Holt McDougal Modern Chemistry, English Literature/writing, Biology, and Phyiscs. The McGraw Hill Algebra 2 on top of social studies, Farsi literature/writing and Arabic. I find all of the subjects I'm studying relatively easy (except Farsi. Even though it's my mother language), and I aced all of my finals last term. But I'm kinda stressed to be
  20. I am in MYP5 and I am undecided about my choices. I want to either study in Portugal or the UK. I want to either to study finance or computer science. The subjects I want to take are: Economics HL Math HL Spanish B HL Portuguese Lit. SL Eng. Lang and Lit. SL Physics SL I am forced to do Portuguese and English. One has to be Lang. and Lit. and the other has to be Lit.. My first language is portuguese, and I do much better in portuguese than in english. Which one is harder though? Lang. and Lit or just Lit.? Do universities prefer one over the other
  21. I'm currently in grade 8 and the pre-ib admissions test is on November 25th, I don't know what material will be on the test, and I don't know the proper way to study for a test. If you can help me that would be a huge help!
  22. I am currently a Canadian Grade 8 student who just recently made IB. I want to know if pre-ib grade 9 is as scary as people say. Also can you post you averages from Grade 9 pre-ib.
  23. Hey, So I am beginning to prepare for the next school year next year (pretty early, I know) which is the year I will start the MYP/Pre-IB program. I'm currently trying to figure out what I'll be needing for note-taking and such. Here's my plan as well as my courses: - English (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Mathematics - Grade 9 (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Mathematics - Grade 10 (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Science (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Canadian Geography (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - French (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Instrumental Music
  24. Hi everyone, I've asked this elsewhere already, so don't be surprised if you've already seen this, but is my courseload doable? Many are telling me to drop to 3 HLs... but I don't really want to and can't at the same time. BOLD courses are blocked courses for Years 1 and 2. Italicized courses are courses that alternate between fall and spring semesters of Year 1 and Year 2. Open the spoiler to see my extracurriculars. DISCLAIMER: I'm likely majoring in neuroscience IB Math SL (my school only offers SL math. I'm okay with that though, because my major isn't math-oriented. And Honors Pre-C

    So I applied for the Pre-IB program and personally think it's a good program for me. The school that I'm applying to (Turner Fenton SS in Ontario) does not have an entrance exam.All you have to do is submit your Grade 7 final report card results, your Grade 8 progress report card, and answer 2 questions.1. Choose one IB learning profile characteristic that best describes you.Explain why. 2. How are you going to make the world a better place? (not exact question) I believe that my responses were one of the best paragraphs I wrote in my life, so I'm not worried about them. I mentioned that I rec
