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.
