I'm going into IB next year, and I'm wondering if it's affected your tf2 careers at all.

Thanks

I'm going into IB as well and the advice I was given was get a planner and make sure you manage your time well. You should be set if you can do that.

I graduated with an IB diploma and a score of 37 -- had 3 hours a night for TF2 and I spent a lot of time procrastinating. I hear that the workload really varies by school, though, and mine was probably on the low end, so your experience may significantly differ.

International Baccalaureate

some schools offer both AP and IB, AP being advanced placement.
Basically college/university level courses. A lot of schools even accept the credits.

i did ib through high school

math is easy as you should honestly go for lower level unless you really feel you excel in math

science i took IB physics, which was.. pretty god damn hard, but I toughed through it

languages i took spanish, pretty easy considering you didnt have to really know it just how to recognize key words and get the gist out of a paragraph

history is what concerns most people, but as long as you stay ontop of your shit and study, you'll do fine.

english was where I faltered, my senior year english teacher was a massive poetry buff, and bob dylan buff. every fucking day i would walk into class and he'd have us compare this poem to a bob dylan song, worst experience of my life, also would fail you on persuasive essays unless you wrote exactly what he wanted even though the goal was to state your side

IB is honestly great because you get free credits depending on where you choose to go to school, and you learn to effectively study and manage your time wisely

-

as for my tf2 career, I honestly am not good at tf2 and probably won't ever will be, but I live on the west coast, and with Theory of Knowledge (TOK) happening for me after school from 3-5 I couldn't scrim with my team until around 8:30 EST, which is usually on time for like half a scrim before your matches start (i played shitty steel highlander and rang for 6s teams)

tl;dr - IB is fairly easy as long as you manage your time, and it shouldn't affect your TF2 career too much, but if you want to get ample time in for scrims you might want to consider getting used to 3-5 hours of sleep a night

oh and don't cheat they'll kick you right out of the program and you will not recieve a diploma or anything (had it happen to a friend of mine who "CHEATED" on a research paper). like don't even try to cheat, they check all papers for plagiarism using shit like turnitin.com (which cross checks your paper across the entire internet, and against papers already turned in)

nickplusdokidokipanicjust cheat like every other ib person i knew and youll be fine.possibly the stupidest shit i've ever heard
then again hithere hasn't posted in this thread yet so im sure itll be topped

i've been through ib though

ib is really hard for me, well technically just history, ss, and science

my ib was probably one of the more challening ones out there, they'd make us work nonstop compared to other people on tf.tv who probably went to other ibs

english was just poetry and multiple paragraphs, but for science, history, and ss every week they'd hand us 2 essays to do and we had to had it done and presentated on something like a keynote or powerpoint by the end of the week. had to take a season of tf2 off just so i could keep my grades up, cause the teachers over at ib for me are always giving me homework to do.

the other subjects were like 8th grade standards, not too shabby, but it took me a little while to get into math, since i had to focus a lot more on my science and more important classes

almost done with ib too, once the year ends, usually everything slows down and there's a lot more cleberations well from my experience at ib

from the main idea: ib is too much time consuming, i couldn't get enough practice on tf2, had to stop tf2 to study and get good grades to get those free credits

p.s - i really wouldn't be too worried if i were you though, they're like mini essays and projects, but for me i'm a workaholic so i always dedicated as much time as possible to making my essays or projects into perfection

i can vouch for this, most ib kids are very anal about their grades and history and science are easily the two hardest subjects unless you decide to take high level calculus classes (like calc 1 and 2)

kids in IB at my school had only 4 classes a semester so it was easy, if you're doing 6-7 classes it could get tough. Depends on your work load.

The only thing that troubled me is the extended essay as me gotta be procrastinatin that shit to deadline, but rest of IB is pretty simple. If you've gotten by middle/highschool without studying, you won't notice a difference

How hard IB is really just depends on your school. The IB teachers that I had made the class as hard as possible, and tried to crap the information in just a semester. It was hard due to the short amount of time we had to learn the material. If you go for the diploma, be prepared to study your ass off. Without IB I wouldn't do really as well as I do now that I'm in college. It taught me study skills, and time management. Students rarely learn these skills outside of advanced classes. Also IB has two categories, SL and HL. If the class is SL, then don't take the exam for it. Colleges don't care about how well you do on an SL exam.

Basically my post is this in a paragraph

i really suggest to go to a really hard ib school, it's better than slacking off and taking the easy way, cause on the way it's gonna get more hard unlike going the hard way, because the hard way gives you new skills that you can use to your advantage when you reach college and etc

The learning curve for IB is meant to whip you in shape for college. In my opinion the IB courses were actually harder than the courses that I've taken at my college.

Thanks, dick. Also I would like to mention that forum posting is informal, so you can afford to not reread what you post. Mistakes will happen sooner or later.

in my experience, if you're committed and smart enough, you'll be fine, if you aren't, just switch out.
