What’s the best thing, and the most challenging in IB?
Anonymous: It’s not challenging. The best thing is that you can choose what you study.
Arnav: The best thing is the diversity of subject choices a student has and the room to grow in the chosen subjects. Personally I have no challenges in the IB but for most people, time management and work ethic are the biggest issues.
Lauri: Best thing in Ib for me are the nice and diverse people from all around and the open mindness and huge variety of differences on opinions etc. Most challenging for me in IB is mathematics obviously.
What’s your favorite subject?
Lauri: History or English

What do you think of Finland and what have been the biggest cultural differences here?
Anonymous: I didn’t see many cultural differences expect one – people are very friendly
Arnav: I think Finland is a lovely place to live. Extremely safe and culturally friendly place. The biggest cultural differences in my opinion are the openness of finnish people in terms of neighborhoods… Everybody is very secluded and minds their own business, there isn’t really a form of ”social network”
Lauri: I love my country its clean and things are under control and the society is obedient for the authority.

Arnav: I generally read, play my guitar, paint, play badminton and work
Lauri: I hang out with friends, do work, play music or just sleep
There have been rumors about ib-parties. Are those better, than regular parties?
Anonymous: Haven’t attended neither
Arnav: I don’t go to parties
Lauri: IB parties are better because ”work hard play harder” applies to it. IB is much harder than the baby level Finnish national side so partying is naturally much harder
