The International Baccalaureate® (IB) makes a concerted effort to track and communicate the level of recognition, for IB programmes, in countries around the world. Freshman Year, I suffered some severe medical conditions.
Unfortunately my grades suffered. I got a C+ in Honors Algebra 3 and a B in Honors Physics(semester 2 only) and a B in Honors Spanish With 6 weeks left and the whole syllabus for the SAT II Math 2 Subject Test to be covered, I felt hopeless and stressed. Thanks to my tutor’s enthusiasm and positive energy, I got over the fear and managed to learn the whole syllabus in 6 weeks!
