I just came out of my IB History class. We had a “Paper 1 Practice Test”. If you don’t know what the IB Paper 1 is, let me explain. IB is a programme that spans over two years for each subject, and at the end of the two years you have a huge paper to write, a few tests, and some other stuff.
The tests are actually called “papers” (don’t ask me why). You have about 4 short answer questions to answer in 60 minutes.
We did a practice paper today, to get prepped for the paper (which is at the end of this year – year 1).
We were given the questions ahead of time, and we worked on them in class – but this won’t happen during the test. Every question will be a surprise.
Anyways, I guess I had my points memorized because I was in and out of there in 30 minutes – and it’s supposed to take you 60 minutes.
I think I did well – I wrote 5 pages, single sided – but who knows? I can’t wait till we get the results back.
Until next time, Em 🙂
