I’m considering leaving the programme because I’m not strong enough mentally to keep going anymore, and my question is: how much do I lose? What’s like, the main reason why I should not take a regular course and stay in the IBDP?

IBDP provides you entry to the majority of colleges and universities in the US. Also, you can get college credit for your classes and in some states like FL the state will pay college tuition, fees and give you $ for books if you get the IB diploma.

I’m not American though, and not planning to study there in the future

It prepares you for university better than regular high school and some schools will give you credit for example doing EE in subject you are applaying for. International recognition is a big perk if you apply to unis abroad and sometimes you can skip language test if you did A lang in IB

I'd do whatever makes you happy. Check what credits IB could give you and then list the pros and cons and decide !!

@ibzsn I just thought that maybe there were some things I might not realize or something, so yeah. But if not, then that’s what I’m going to do, thanks! Xx

Tbh I feel like you should put yourself first, both health and mentally, and if you feel like this is the right call for you go ahead. Yes IB is a very helpful program but it shouldn’t come at the expense of your mental health. Also I’m also looking forward to the BTS comeback haha <3
