In HCIS, I forged meaningful friendships and had supportive teachers. The IB Diploma programme was challenging. However, it has prepared me well for my university studies. The writing skills that I gained from completing my IB coursework, such as formulating coherent arguments and including accurate citations for research, have been beneficial for my studies in university.
In the final year of IB, not only were we faced with many coursework deadlines and the pressure of the IB examinations, we also had to kick-start our university applications. We were given briefings, including crucial information needed to complete the applications and enhance our chances of success. Throughout this process, my academic counsellors clarified the doubts I had and guided me closely.
