After 2 months of pre-university college life, I found out about Knowledgeum Academy and soon realised that it would be a better opportunity for me to join the IBDP.
The day when I joined, I was very nervous about how I would cover the syllabus as I had joined 4 months late, however, the teachers were extremely supportive in helping me complete the syllabus and still keeping it engaging. After joining the Academy, I have noticed an increase in my confidence, speaking skills, and creativity. In the classes, we have a lot of interactions, debates, and presentations and teachers give us different kinds of activities to learn every subject through action and experience.
I joined IB as I wanted to prepare to study abroad but now 5 months into this curriculum I think it's a way of life.
In IB, unique elements such as CAS,TOK helps us go deeper into our knowledge. The student-facilitator ratio is small, so we get individual assistance. It gives us a chance to build on our research, communication, and even time management skills. It is more of a student-led programme. The programme focuses on conceptual learning and applying the skills in real life. The most exciting part of IBDP is the subject choices, as we have so many to choose from based on our interests. Knowledgeum Academy has provided us with a speechcraft programme that is meant for undergrad but we had a wonderful time and it had a greater impact on our communication skills. We also had various universities coming in that guided us and explained to us how universities abroad work. All in all, after coming here I have started to work on myself and know that if I manage my time smartly, everything is possible.
My journey in Knowledgeum Academy has been very pleasant. We got amazing opportunities to showcase our interests, knowledge, and talents all through the journey.
We have been able to develop holistically both in terms of academics and non-academic activities which too are included as a part of the curriculum. Also following the IB curriculum, we are exposed to international-mindedness and many other qualities that we are required to develop. We get to see and explore what we are learning as IB is application-based learning which feels more lively and also fosters curiosity. Being a part of Knowledgeum Academy has definitely built my personality and made me more outgoing and confident
