    No, it's unlikely there would be much of an issue with that kind of school. It's more likely that the schools you applied to are just super competitive. Good overseas British schools can receive 100s if not 1000s of applications for each post.

    Yes - unfortunately I don't think I played up my experience of spec/curriculum changes enough. I just wish some international schools didn't treat a lack of IBDP experience as the equivalent of having no knowledge of your subject!

    A super useful piece of advice - I hadn't thought to browse student forums (tbh honest I didn't realise teenagers still used forums!), but the ones I've looked at so far are a really useful starting point. I've also started stalking Twitter for IBDP Lit/Lang teachers and trawling through the resources they've shared to get a clearer idea of expectations of essay content, etc.

    Yes, the Principal did say there were over 100 applicants for the role and they only interviewed 8, so maybe I should count myself lucky for having even reached the interview stage without IB experience.
