I just got denied access to the IB DIPLOMA programe, it sucks. I was so pissed, I asked them why I wasn't allowed to take the programe and they said I didn't put enough effort in my work, I averaged a 5/8 on every subject but still didn't make it into the IB diploma. Anyways I bounced back and proved to the teachers and people who didn't believe in me that they were wrong. I ended up taking the Ib certificate, which is the second pathway, and averaged a 6/8 on all my subjects. I am now currently in a very good college studying medicine.
