Welcome to Our Blog!

Hey, this is Elorm and Lena. If you're reading this, you're probably an IB student, or maybe a teacher or even a parent.

Well, welcome! We are IBDP students, both in year 1 of the DP programme. For the next few months, we are going to be updating this blog with experiences and advice that we've encountered during our DP journey so far.

So this is to all of the students learning online right now: we feel your pain! Starting the DP program online has not been easy. There were a lot of adjustments to be made, and none of them were easy. For instance, I (Lena) struggle with waking up at THREE A.M. because I am in a different time zone from my school. And I (Elorm), struggle with balancing my home life with my school work. Like, no I cannot spend an hour washing the dishes mom I have TOK. And I don't know if it's because suddenly our teachers think that there are more than 24 hours in a day or WHAT, but my back is tired from carrying this workload. Please hospitalize me.

Okay we're done complaining.

We both did the MYP programme two years, and the transition from MYP to DP was relatively smooth. The first week of DP was quite confusing, mostly because we were adjusting to our new subjects, teachers, classes, blah blah blah. But now, four months into the programme, we think we've properly adapted to the requirements of the programme (I still haven't gotten a 7 but that's okay - Lena). Our advice to you is to read the subject guides for your the subjects you take, so you know exactly what is expected of you. Also, make time to practice/study outside of class. Even if it's just an hour or less a day, every little bit hurts. ALSO, do not let CAS take over. No. NO. Do not. We would know, we're both part of like 6 different CAS projects. Anyway, that is all we have for you today, we hope you enjoy our site! Good luck fellow IB students! We love you! Too much? Okay.

Back to TikTok. ✌🏾
