Even with COVID, I still feel that IB was able to prepare me for college because much of what I am encouraged to do is centered around critical thinking.
While each course discusses an element within its area of study, continuous connections are made that weave together all the classes I am taking. This is a huge part of IB where we oftentimes find ourselves understanding a topic better due to learning a different perspective of it in another class. Another way the IB helped to prepare me for college is with essay writing, especially in terms of the Extended Essay. Writing that has prepared me to conduct research for longer essays, both analytical and research-based, in college, and make use of the reflective portion of the essay as well. Overall, it is a great experience, and, while stressful at times, I recommend it for anyone who is up for a challenge to explore learning and education in a more open-minded way.
