Hi! I'm new here and I'd like to share my concerns with you guys. (Because I'm pretty good at complaining, lol) I've just started my last year of MYP, but I'm really worried about what the future holds. Although I get 7's and 6's in humanities, I've always struggled with natural sciences, especially math, having dyscalculia. Many people are satisfied with this program and that's great, but my confidence is extremely low due to having attended PYP and MYP. It's just too demanding, expecting students to be geniuses or something. Yes, I tend to procrastinate and know that everything requires some effort, however, I really don't know what to do about IB. Any advice?

@__bibiana_._ See since you’re doing good at humanities keep revising on regular basis as with dyslexia is gets harder. Speaking from personal experience since I have dyscalculia practice math daily. Solve a concept or two and solve past papers to understand. Likewise, with natural sciences make notes from background to application part so it’s easier when you have to study for a test. You may or may not struggle with graphs and complex diagrams, so I strongly recommend you to keep a separate notebook for each difficulty you face in humanities, maths and natural sciences. Break down each concept so application is easier for you. Hope it helps.

I would recommend planning out when each thing is and plan out time to work on each thing. That’s what works for me, but make sure to schedule breaks for yourself so you don’t get burned out.
