Anyone take ITGS? Took ITGS?
Are there any good revision sources? As there are no Books!
How do you get a good grade?!
If 0% get 7!
Okay, I realise that not many people here must do Philosophy given the general lack of posts about it, but I was wondering if anybody felt like sharing any useful links or tips about revision, resources etc. Particularly with regard to set texts A few places/things I've found very useful: IB Philosophy at Pearson College Page http://peernet.lbpc.ca/Philosophy/contents.htm Notes on: Philosophy of Religion, Political Philosophy, Plato's Republic, Nietzsche's On the Genealogy of Morals, Rousseau's Origin of Inequality (Social Contract), Solipsism, Descartes' Meditations (summary) and various smaller topics. Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy http://plato.stanford.edu/ Reso…

could someone please explain me how is it global politics HL? I was thinking about taking it but I'm not sure because I would like to hear the opinion of someone who has taken it.
Thank you so much
I have a question regarding the MLI. Is it really a big deal if the chosen pieces are inappropriate?
So I was looking at the criteria, and the only criterion that affects the chosen pieces is criterion A. The rest are independent, or so it seems (it's never explicitly stated).
For instance, criterion A tells us that "This criterion concerns the student’s choice of musical examples. A student should choose one (or more) musical piece(s) from each of two identifiable and distinct musical cultures. These examples must also share two or more significant musical links that can be investigated in detail.".
However, if we look at the grading, and s…
Does anyone have a pdf file of the textbook for ib sports and science. If you do, can you please send it to the email [email protected] . Please guys it's urgent. Please save my IB grade. Thank you guys so much
My school is in the process of verification DP program and I'm in the process of creating a "DP subject outline—Group 4: sciences" for Computer Science SL & HL. As a new DP teacher, I already made a draft, but would like to see an example of other teachers. Does anyone have a completed computer science subject outline that they would share with me? my email [email protected]
If anyone has access to core computer science textbook for IB can you please share it with me. I haven't taken computer Science in year 1 but I plan to change to this next year as physics is just too much and I think I can bridge the gap.
If you could share the google drive here please
Good Afternoon/Morning Computer Science Students,
Hopefully everyone is enjoying their weekend.....
Just a question regarding the pseudocode conventions (Topic 4) surrounding switch-cases. I have had a look at the IB Comp Sci guide and "Approved Notation for Developing Pseudocode" and have not found anything regarding it. Does anyone know if we can use switch-cases in pseudocode? If not, maybe I'll just have to go back to if, else if, else if, else if, else. Oh well.
Thank you very much in advance.
Can anyone tell me how big the gap between chem HL&SL and econ HL&SL are?
I'm currently taking math, chem, physics HL & english langlit, mandarin B, econ SL.
Would dropping chem from HL to SL and switching econ SL to HL reduce the workload?
I already feel quite overwhelmed by the amount of work from math&physics HL
I’m doing a database for my ITGS IA. I need to decide whether to use Microsoft Access or LibreOffice. Does anybody know or have experience with LibreOffice?? Does it have the same features and tools as Access?? Pleeeease help
I just cant figure out a single product which can be viable enough to present as an Computer Science IA, my teacher has been telling me to build my own website with a database connected to it, but I cant find any suitable client in need of a website and even if I was to be my own client I cant seem to figure out an idea which would be unique enough for a CS IA.
I have recently been assigned the task; to do my philosophy essay
So far I have not thought much to talk about but I know for a fact that I want to base it off of Albert Camus's Absurdism, but at the same time debate with John-Paul Sartre's Existentialism.
My philosophical question I thought of is: Should suicide be an option? or this question: Why shouldn't we commit suicide [I like this one more]
I would really appreciate any; ideas which I could contribute to this IA as I am currently experiencing Writer's block.
Thank you so much guys!
here's my stimulus:
If you know any good case studies for geography HL/SL please post a name of the place, year, and what kind of issue it considered. That way we can all get a 7! My example: Kobe, Japan, Earthquake, 1995 (this is enough cause everyone has google, and looking for a specific issue is much easier, finding examples without any names is tough as you may know)
I need your help for my Design IA Project! It'll be my pleasure if you can do this short survey. The results will be used for the IA project.
So im 4 months into IB and I've taken IB math HL. In these 4 months we've had constant tests in which I've barely managed to get a 3. Im considering shifting to SL but many unis prefer math hl students for computer science courses. I've shifted to IB from CBSE where i managed to get an overall of 97% in math. Despite this i am unable to do math HL. Do all universities require math hl for computer courses?
I have philosophy internal assesment due in March, and I can't seem to think of a stimulus for my essay. My task is to find a non-philosophical stimulus and apply the ideas of other philosophers to comment on the stimulus i have chosen. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. =D
So basically I did not pay attention in Bio, didnt do homework and surfed the web in class, now the exams are in May and Im panicking. All the tests I did got below 30%. What how can I catch up on it? PLease share tips and tricks because I want to pass IB.
For our internal assessments (e.g. Biology), will you fail IB if you don't do in-text citations, but you did do the works cited at the end? I have a whole list of works cited on the last page but no in-text citations throughout it. It is difficult to go back and find each sentence to in-text citate it.
In-text citations are a pain and it's giving me anxiety! Please help! Thank you very much!
Wow, I haven't been on this site since I started MYP. It's great to be back here, this time as an IB student!!
So we were recently introduced to our Global Politics IA (Personal Engagement Activity), and I'm semi-lost as this is a newly offered course at my school and no one's ever taught it before. My teacher isn't being that helpful in terms of the expectations and all, but I have a broad idea of what I need to do. We're expected to have proposals ready in the next couple of week and present them to our teacher for approval. As this is a relatively new course offered by the IB itself, there aren't that many resources available for help or inspiration. I feel as tho…
so my friend was doing her IA on a company called Godrej Interio. But she just now found out that she was collecting data from their franchisor, not from the company itself. The 2nd draft is submission in another 2-3 days. Can anyone suggest on how to tackle this even if she could extend the deadline by 3-4 days? That would be really helpful
With my mock exams coming up soon, and my grades not getting where I'd like them to be, it's really made me realise how the lack of training my teacher has is affecting the class itself. She's an excellent history teacher, but I'm afraid I can't say the same for Global Politics, and even the best in our class agrees with me. So I was wondering if anyone had a teacher trained in the subject whom I could contact for marking of the past papers I'm practicing and some additional tips.
Hello fellow IB students,
For my design technology IA, I am trying to redesign a 3D printing multi-material upgrade. You don't need to necessarily know all that much about 3D printing to participate in this survey. Any data that I can get would be very helpful for market analysis https://goo.gl/forms/n8lBQgttCI68h5e12
Thank you very much!
As you know, for the criterion E of ITGS IA, it says I must use at least three advanced techniques from the list. I am making a website, so I think I must focus on the "multimedia" section. The website was created using WIX. I first wrote about html coding, where I created tables to introduce the products. HTML was also used for paragraphs and introducing the company as well. Secondly, I wrote about Integration of components using advanced features from other applications, that is embedding google maps using html. Lastly, I indicated the Proficient integration of the different elements of multimedia. Here, I talked about creating slideshows and adding various effects usin…
I have a little issue, but I'm not sure if it can be a problem. So, for my Computer Science IA, I am developing an online website. In order to visit this online website, you can visit a particular URL and you can find the website.
My problem is, that the URL contains my name. Not the full name though. Let's say my name is "Frederick", then the URL contains the word "Fred".
This shows in criterion D, which is the video. So while watching the video of me showing my application in the video, if one looks at the link they would see that it contains an shortened version of my first name in it.
Would this be a problem? I can't seem to find a definit…
I am almost done with my CS IA, and I have a question. The guide says that we are supposed to reference all our sources in criterion C. However, should I reference any pictures I used there too? If so, how? I know how referencing works in general, but in this case it's a bit weird/confusing.
Also, I used a ton of sources for little things, consulting stackoverflow forums etc. Should I reference one by one individually? I think this is unrealistic, as many of them are just simple things that anyone could think of. Others are things that I didn't even show at my Criterion C, because they weren't even worth to put them in. They were that simple. Is it okay i…

I was planning to do relationship between sucrose level and refraction of a solution but the data I found was a lab report so does it mean its already analyzed?
Any recommendations and resources are welcome
One of the world’s most important jobs has put the U.S. in great danger by increasing national debt, causing unemployment to be at its lowest, and increasing interest rates. Despite the tax cuts, Trump has increased his import and export tariff expenses causing multiple debt situations. According to this article, this debt is caused by poor decision making from the president and minor setbacks that cause major debt.
Under President Donald Trump’s administration, the United States government debt has grown faster than any other former president’s administration. Since 2012, the national debt has grown over $5 tril…
Hi! I'm currently collecting data for my investigation, and I want to use a couple of different maps to showcase the information (such as dot-mapping, showing the area with color gradients, etc.). I'm working with traffic flow as a consequence of public works. so I wan't to portray graphically my data in at least two different types of maps. However, I have found online free map making resources to be limited or too simplistic. I used Google's "My Maps" to point down in rectangles and specific locations, but the inscriptions (such as bars, gyms and irrelevant places) are somewhat distracting. Do you know of any accesible tools to make maps (without inscriptions, that is) …
I'll have to decide on our ia topics by tomorrow! I came up with 2 potential ia topics but can't decide which one to do:
Does my city fit the multi-nuclei model?
What factors affect the sphere of influence of the local supermarket/store?
With the 1st one I'll need to find certain features in the, say 5-6, potential commercial centers in my city, and use the definitions to prove that they are indeed CBDs, and then piece them together. There're a few classmates with similar topics and we're supposed to go in groups, but still it might be pretty tough fieldwork?
With the latter I'll first measure the sphere of influence, and then come up wi…
*Title. How hard is it to get a 7 in Geography HL. I was wondering how many people had managed to get a 7 in this subject in last year cohort. I will be taking this subject up as a HL Subject and was wondering would be to difficult to achieve a 7 in it.
Hi, I'm doing a bunch of practice tests for philosophy and in the test about prescribed texts I can't seem to understand quite well the structure of section B, or how to write it correctly.
I'm doing it about Nietzsche in genealogy of morals, specifically about the ascetic ideals and the will to truth that he describes in the third treaty.
Any help would be appreciated!
I am working on my Computer Science IA. I was thinking of using a web framework that would increase the quality of my code (this is a web project that will be used for a long time and therefore I want to make the code easily understandable by everyone). The framework, however, would make it harder to run the website if examines wanted to try to run it locally. My question is: will the examiners actually try my code locally, or will they be happy by only viewing the source code and accessing the real website by URL that I will give them?
i started IB a month ago i am taking economics as my group 3 subject until now the subject is fine but i don't think that i am going to do well and im not really enjoining the subject so i was thinking to change to world religions but im not sure. is world religions easier? can i get higher marks in world religions? im not that good at writing or discussing so which one should i take???
