TOK Thoughts

Theory of Knowledge is the second semester of junior year and first semester of senior year. Here’s a pre- and post-TOK review from junior Krish Bhalla and senior Kian Nolan.


Describe your TOK experience.

Krish: It’s so rule-oriented: you need to follow the rules exactly to get a good grade.

Kian: I feel enlightened and accomplished.


Will TOK help you outside the classroom?

Krish: I think TOK teaches you how to be extroverted, and it helps your communication skills a lot.

Kian: Reading about stuff with different perspectives, and that sort of thing is helpful after graduation.


Favorite/least favorite aspects?

Krish: I like the seminars.

Kian: The TOK essay was whack. I think getting started on it is difficult.
