The International Baccalaureate: Where Overachievement is a Requirement

The International Baccalaureate: Where Overachievement is a Requirement

It’s official: the International Baccalaureate (IB) has succeeded in making learning intolerable. They have succeeded in making learning a never-ending misery for kids everywhere with their high academic standards and demanding curriculum. 

The days of rote memorization and recitation of facts are long gone. Even the smartest pupils struggle to stay up now that the IB has raised the bar for education. The IB has developed a curriculum that is so rigorous and emphasizes critical thinking, creativity, and global knowledge that students feel underwhelmed and unprepared. Let’s start with the workload. Even the most organized student could go crazy from the sheer amount of work needed to finish the programme. Not to be overlooked is the dreaded Extended Essay. Even the most assured writer would get cold sweats reading this 4000-word masterwork. But don’t worry, pupils have a two-year window to do it thanks to the IB’s generosity. That would be like telling a lion in need of food to wait two years for its prey to appear.

And the assessments, oh, the assessments! It is obvious that the IB wants pupils to be well-rounded people because tests encompass everything from arithmetic to art. But how are kids expected to succeed in everything when they are having trouble keeping up with the workload? The IB’s reflection component, however, is the true killer. Students must take the time to consider what they are learning and how it is affecting them because the programme demands them to reflect on their learning. When there are already so many things to keep up with, who has time for that?

So why do students even bother with the International Baccalaureate? 

The answer is simple: bragging rights. Students can brag to anyone who would listen about their “superior” education if they have an IB diploma. But let’s be honest, are the countless study sessions and never-ending stress and anxiety really worth it?

The IB’s rigorous academic requirements, however, have an impact on more than simply the kids. The pressure is also felt by the teachers. It’s understandable that students might feel worn out and overwhelmed given the curriculum’s demand that they learn so much material in a short period of time. But don’t worry, the IB has considered every possibility. Even a “support network” is offered to instructors to aid in navigating the curriculum. When you have a “support network,” who needs sleep or social life?

So, how can one cope with the IB? How can we lessen the pain they endure? 

The simple solution is to return education back to its former glory. Remember when memorizing information was sufficient to pass a test? The good old days when students weren’t required to reflect on their education. The days when teachers had an abundance of time and a lack of syllabus. 

So why do students even bother with the International Baccalaureate? The answer is simple: they have no choice. With its emphasis on diversity and well-roundedness, the IB requires students to study a wide variety of subjects in order to earn their diploma. But is it really worth it? Is it worth sacrificing sleep and social life in order to study subjects that may not even be relevant to their future careers?

Fear not, dear reader, for I am here to offer you a guide on how to cope with the IB and emerge victorious on the other side.

Step 1: Get used to sleep deprivation

The IB requires a significant amount of time and effort, and unfortunately, this time is usually taken away from your beauty sleep. But don’t worry, you’ll soon get used to the dark circles under your eyes and the endless fatigue. After all, a good night’s sleep is extremely overrated.

Step 2: Embrace stress.

Stress is an inevitable part of the IB experience. It is recommended that you embrace it and let it become a part of your daily routine. Take deep breaths, do some yoga, and remind yourself that stress is your friend. After all, it’s not called the International Baccalaureate for nothing.

Step 3: Forget about your personal life.

The IB demands all of your attention and effort, so it’s best to forget about your personal life and focus on your studies. Who needs friends and family when you have the IB to keep you company?

Step 4: Say goodbye to free time.

The IB is a full-time job, and it’s best to forget about any free time you may have had. But don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy life once you graduate and enter the real world.

Step 5: Get used to the waterworks.

Crying is a common occurrence during the IB, so it’s best to get used to it. Whether it’s from stress, frustration, or just plain exhaustion, tears will become a part of your daily routine. Keep a box of tissues handy and embrace the tears, for they are a sign that you are human.

But don’t worry, with the right attitude and approach, you too can emerge victorious on the other side.

To sum it up, the International Baccalaureate is a gift that keeps on giving. High academic expectations, a demanding curriculum, and an endless workload ensure that both students and teachers feel stressed out and unprepared. Well, at least they can brag about their “superior” education, though, right?
