Does IB prepare you for university? Will it be different? Is the transition difficult? Is it hard to balance your academic, social and daily chores? Do you have the best time? Is it different as compared to high school? Is it too cold during winter?
YES. Living in a new country, I initially thought that it would be hard to have conversations with the people due to the difference in interests. But it all works out and you have the best time of your life. You stay up together with your new friends, procrastinate together, cry together before an exam, or pull all-nighters for no reason. During the week, its hell just like IB but after Thursday, you enjoy, meet new people every weekend, get lost in the woods and have new experiences. By meeting people from different countries, you learn so much about different cultures and experience different functions. You change as a person because you have to be responsible but can be irresponsible. In a few words, “College is academically and socially challenging, but rewarding.”
