  1. Hey, I just want to be sure that I'm not in over my head when I transferred from a public school to a charter, that offers IB. I usually have good motivational tendencies and coping with depression off my female monthly event, but I realized that I had not taken into account that my depression is exacerbated greatly during that period of time. I think that my emotional stress every month grants me a disadvantage that will not prove fruitful if I stay in the program. I do well in all of my SL courses except Biology because the teacher rushes everything, usually not telling us a

  2. Hey! I'm also doing an English Lit. EE. Mine is on "Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett. One of the books we read in Year 1 was "The Back of the Turtle". I think that it's by Thomas King? It's writhe with literary elements and connects to many themes. If you're at all interested in environmental preservation, corporate corruption, native rights, or protests, it's a good one. There's also an audiobook available somewhere online, I can scrounge up the link if you're interested.

  3. In addition, this often stressed enough: Check what the course you want to do at Uni requires! Some Psychology courses (for example) require Chem HL and Bio HL with IB Psych nowhere to be seen. I know the choice seems insignificant now, but you don't want to be in a position to not have taken the courses required for what you want to study.

  4. What are your other subjects? IF you do another HL in Biology (or any other intensive memorising subject like History) - DON'T TAKE HL PSYCHOLOGY. You will be having a very bad time, like I am. IF your other HL is in Maths - I recommend HL Chemistry (because if your maths is good, your chemistry should be great as well) IF your other HL is in English - this means that you're great at analytical writing, and that you don't have much to memorise. Hence, then you should pick Psychology HL. Honestly, the most memorisation subjects are most likely Biology HL, Psychology HL, an

  6. By the way, I found my Math IA about celestial navigation so if anyone wants to read it just send me a message with an e-mail or some other preferred method of file transfer and I'll send a copy. In case anyone was wondering, the elegantly worded IB-style title is: Mathematics Exploration – How can celestial navigation be mathematically modeled to find one’s location on Earth when time and the position of celestial bodies are known?

  7. I'd love to tell you more about the topic and my IA and I could even send a copy of it if the IBO and your school both allow it. If you want specific help with the topic feel free to message me and I can even provide some quick online tutoring on the topic if you would like. I'm going to look for my Math IA, I know I have it saved somewhere but it's been a couple of years so I don't remember everything. Here's what I remember. Basically the way navigation works is you have 3 celestial objects, usually stars or in the case of GPS, satellites, and you are able to measure angles and find you

  8. The title is pretty much self-explanatory (lol) but if not, this is a post about writing an a1 language ee, primarily focused on english obviously, and based largely on personal experience. If you have any questions about this post (turned out longer than I expected!) or the ee itself, send me a message. Also, if you have a draft and are looking for feedback, I might be able to help. Ground rules first - you need to have a good grasp of your the language you are writing your extended essay (latin and ancient greek possibly excepted) -- and this probably means a good grade in the relevant class

  10. I'm a little confused by your wording - freshman year of IB, exams in May 2021, SL courses, and the exam being "pushed back" from May to April? It sounds like you're in MYP, which is a five year programme for students aged 11-16, that does not have SL and HL courses, and exams (eAssessments), like DP exams, are on an official, scheduled period (November and May sessions). The exams can't be moved back. Also, freshmen can't take the DP, because it's for 16-19 year old students, and in the US, that's typically kept for juniors and seniors. Dropping out of IB shouldn't have any real rep

  11. I personally believe in pro-choice, and that's simply because I believe that women should be allowed to make their own choice as to whether or not to keep a baby. While pro-life makes sense, I believe that if a woman is in any kind of danger, or simply does not want a child, she should be allowed to make the choice to abort. Often, in places where abortion is illegal, women will often take things into their own hands, and that is usually much worse for both the mother and the fetus. I've noticed that a majority of arguments that I've heard (in my experience, anyway) usually involve the fa

  13. Anything off the syllabus is fine. You do not need to have super elaborate experiments. More often than not trying to be creative means you're trying to do something difficult and you're going to lose marks on trivial things rather than getting near full marks with something easier. Look through your textbook for some inspiration. Also please do not type in all caps. It is viewed as shouting and is not necessary.

  14. There have been a lot of questions and posts regarding how to do well in IB, tips and study strategies and everything. But really. Is all that necessary? Everyone here is either an IB grad, and IB2 or IB1 students, and at best you're at pre-IB. I am starting this thread because I don't feel like there has been enough emphasize on procrastination. As a result for their wasted time, students fall back on "good study habits". For goodness sake, we are ALL at least grade 11 students! I'm sure we all have some type of understanding of how to study! I know the posts on study skills helps, but the b

  15. I'm female, and I do Maths HL and Physics SL. If I hear one more time from my parents about how I'm meant to be bad at these subjects... perhaps I'll manage to use it as my motivation to do well and prove the stereotype wrong.

  16. And this is a prime example of how to not get help around here. You are annoying people with the following: - Capslock - Excessive punctuation like ........ - No punctuation where is needed (i.e. question mark) - Textspeak - Terrible grammar - No effort at actually typing a meaningful post that makes sense - Assuming that we can and we will give you a research question just because you've told us a list of the materials you've used in your experiment (we can't and we won't.). - Trying to get people to do work for you by getting them to form a research question for you

  17. I'm not sure how much stuff you're going to have to talk about in this topic. Korea was already divided before the war and the war only confirmed its division with little hope for reunification. The armistice happened when it did (1951 - and it took like 2 years to negotiate) because they were basically fighting almost a stalemate. They were just driving each other back and forth over the 38th parallel. At the end of the war, South Korea only gained like the smallest fraction of land that they didn't have before the war. I think your question is a bit of a case of proving the obvious. I'll te
