So I'm starting IB at a new school next year. Today I spoke to a girl that graduated from IB a few years ago, and she warned me about how difficult it's going to be to get good grades. Suddenly, I remembered that colleges look the most at your junior year grades, and I'm worried that IB is really going to affect my grades next year and thus, affect my chances at getting into a good college.
Are there any IB-ers/ex IB-ers that can offer a few words of wisdom as to how to do well in IB? I understand that each school's IB program is somewhat different in terms of grading and such, but any advice would be appreciated
Thanks in advance.
