Last Wednesday, Year11 students and their parents attended our IB evening lead by Dr. Latkowski. We believe that the presentation and conversations with the IB teachers proved very helpful. For anyone who missed an opportunity of being in school on Wednesday evening, the presentation is available at: http://img.nordangliaeducation.com/resources/europe/_filecache/f23/a77/15257-ib-presentation-2016.pdf
The IB presentation was strongly supported by current IB students, Cyryl Gierynski (Year 13) and Margarita Durovcikova (Year 12). Here is a bit of advice provided by them to our Year 11 students or anyone else who plans to enroll in the IB programme:
Cyryl: “In my opinion the key to succeeding in the IB is completing most your work in year 12. Things like the personal statement, extended essay, etc. simply have to be out of the way in year thirteen to leave time for applications, interviews, entrance exams and most importantly; revision”.
Meggie: “IB gives you much choice and independence in what you want to study which makes it very different from the educational systems that I have experienced and I really enjoy it. It is a challenge, but with a positive mindset, hard work (and some coffee), it can be overcome - like anything in life”.
