PMT: Should We, Could We All Be IB

Tomas Weiss

Schools should or shouldn't become IB?

There are many positive and negative things about things. Many people can argue about why and why shouldn't schools be IB. But in my opinion schools shouldn't be IB.


  • Not many people graduate with the IB diploma.
  • Rarely anytime to do things such as community service and etc.
  • Too much unnecessary work.
  • The IB diploma graduation rate is low.
  • Many people believe that it's a waste of time.
  • Not all universities accept IB credit.
  • When graduating from high school you are only an IB candidate.
  • You don't get the IB diploma right away.


  • A lot of work to prepare for college.
  • Get to learn more things around the world.
  • Nothing but a lot of work.
  • IB classes has a max of 5.0 for GPA.
(There isn't much positive things for IB)


No IB please!

Having the IB program is basically setting a lot of people to fail. There will be some people that can pass the IB program, but those are the rare successful people. Even though they are many successful people in the world, not many had to go through the IB program. It does sound good to have the IB program on your resume, but it just isn't really required to. I honestly believe we don't need IB.
