5. Will either be my downfall or my emancipation from a mediocre life.
1. Year 10 Student (pre-IB): Hey! ive aced every class this year! i think ill do the IB. I've always been fairly smart, and even though i know it will be a challenge, i want to give it a go!
2. Year 11 student (first year IB): Wow... i didnt realise that now i am in a class of gifted people, i no longer stand out - in fact, i feel like a big old dumbass...
3. I feel very grateful for my education. I have attended the best private girls school in australia since i was 7 thanks to my parents being able to pay $17 000 a year to keep me there, now im doing the IB! i better get a damn good result or ill have nothing to show for my $153 000 education...
5. "oh!, how delightful prudence! your daughter will be attending MLC also! Do come down to the Estate this weekend with your family, we can play polo and croquet and it will be jolly good fun!"
6. Hmmmm... i could either end up failing IB (and become a crackwhore) or, i could be a future high-rolling corporate fat-cat/neurosurgeon/investment banker/corporate lawyer/astronaut.



Its funny, because when i asked my father (who is a doctor) to help me with my first term IB biology homework, he said that it was the same as what he learnt in second year med...

ib
A program created in an attempt to control the minds of the youths of the future, implemented by Swiss lawn gnomes, by preventing their exposure to the outside world.

The state goals of the program are to provide students with an education rounded out accross five program areas ("groups") - including Language 1, Language 2, Social Sciences, Science, Math, and Art/Option. Additional elements of the program include CAS (a system used to force students out of the house once in a while), ToK (philosophy) and Extended Essay.

In an attempt to shove too much information down the throats of students, the program ends up significantly improving the core skill required to succeed in IB: Bullshit. The phrase I.B. therefore I B.S. comes from this.

IB
The International Baccalaureate Program is an organization dedicated to the predation of young minds through manipulation and psycological brainwashing. It corrupts students into believing that they are part of a priviledged and elite society of more intelligent beings and raises its own prestige by forcing students to commit to nineteen hour work days, thereby causing parents to believe that the massive and unreasonable amount of travail must equate with a higher education. This in turn deters the ordinarily rational parents from protesting when asked to pay absurd amounts of money for exams that their children grow to despise. It is not until their fourth year in this fraudulent program that the participants realize that this course has no effect on the colleges to which they intend to apply. By this time, the student has already dedicated thousands of hours to this corporation (doubt not that it is indeed a corporation) and human nature insists that they complete the program.

Its long, unpronounceable and un-spellable name only adds to its supposed prominence.

In short, this institution is designed to swindle valuable money and time away from its members by exploiting competitive young adults.
an essential part of surviving IB is knowing the intimidating effect of a thesaurus

IB
International Baccalaureate Program, a high school program for exceptionally gifted students, designed to transform once intelligent creative students into conformists of an international curriculum. This program is known for causing ridiculously high stress levels, mutual hatred and competition amongst it's students, repeated mental breakdowns, bloodshed, lack of a social life, and the mastery of bullshitting your way through things.

IB students are typically extremely masochistic and rarely sleep. It is also known to have made students who once felt quite smart to feel quite stupid, thus greatly lowering their self-esteems.

Another name for IB is hell.
Non-IB student: Hey you want to go hang out tonight?

IB student: Sorry, I can't. I have a chemistry formal report due tomorrow, I have to read about 100 pages for biology, read an entire Shakespeare play, write a research paper about Stalin, do an entire chapter of calculus, and volunteer for 8 hours too.

Non-IB student: Damn.

IB
International Baccalaureate, an enriched High School program that's so special that it's the same all over the world so if you plan to do highschool in several different countries a year it's easy to adjust. It's special because you have no choice in what classes you take so the schools don't have to worry about finding teachers for electives, you have to do 120 hours of community service and the PROGRAM OWNS YOUR SOUL. To top it off, in addition to the super stressful courses you get to hand in an essay at the end of the year that's the culmination of four years of research and blood and sweat and if you don't do well on it YOU FAIL AND YOUR LIFE WILL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING BECAUSE YOU CAN'T DO HIGHSCHOOL AGAIN SINCE THEY SUCKED OUT YOUR SOUL.
John must be pretty smart, he's in IB.
