Exam’s start tomorrow! I studied most of the day after school, snacking on strawberries and sipping diet coke. I’m somewhat nervous, but I’m relieved it’ll be over with soon.
Sometimes I feel like being an expat puts extra pressure on you as a student, as it’s possibly more difficult or you end up switching systems. The jump to IB was somewhat confusing, going from the regular percentage to rubrics, but I think I’ve got the hang of it now, it is an improvement from the system they used in Shanghai, which we were never even told the name of. From what I have heard though, IB is pretty challenging and that a large percentage of our final grades are based on tests and exams, which I find a lot more difficult than assignments. Ugh!
