A malevolent school curriculum that gives you no choice in what you want learn at school (The ib state that there is more choice than A-levels, no matter how many times they say this it will never be true). You are asked (forced) to take 6 subjects (3 at higher & 3 at lower), and on top of that you MUST ''participate'' in a subject (whether you like it or not) called theory of knowledge, this is complete and utter bull**** as you will have to write a essay of ~1400 words, as if thats not enough you will have to do a 40 minute presentation on a ''controversial'' issue, as can be seen theory of knowledge is a waste of time, and on top of all this you have to do coursework for every other lesson.
They add the word ''Diploma'' to make it sound more prestigious, where in actual fact it is roughly the same as 3-4 A-levels, this can be seen as a form of psycological bribary (fooling someone in to something that isnt as good as it sounds).
Other bull**** in the ib include the 4000 word essay, CAS (this isnt as bad though) and a truck load of oral commentaries.
Any one who has been involved in/with the ib for more than a week will usually result to finding loop holes out of the tasks assigned and find something more useful to do (something not related to the ib), in a frequent scenario students result to plagiarism and paying large deals of money for someone else to do the work for you.
If you have a choice DONT'T DO THE ib
My parents gave me the option A-levels or ib, I chose A-levels immediately (but parents disagree, and choose the ib ''diploma''
I'm in the ib, therefore only half my work is genuine
The ib is bull****
ib is an excuse for smart people to say that they are doing something harder and more challenging than A levels (the difference is very slim, its just there is heavier work load in the ib)
A.K.A. International Baccalaureate - A malicious program aimed at the unnaturally brighter population in an attempt to overload their brains, thus reducing them to vegetables without lives. However, a true IB student will respond by adapting and bsing their way through.
IB, therefore I BS.
IB - Teaching students how to turn shit into gold!
Commonly thought to be a magnet program, International Baccalaureate is in reality a cleverly disguised plot to steal the souls, sleep, and free wills of high school students. Pros include mad bs'ing skills

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 teaches students to turn shit into gold.
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
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.
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.
