  1. I chose queston no. 3 and got an A too! Maybe that was one of the "easy" questions, because I didn't find myself spending too much time on it either.
  2. I got my results! 35/45! These were my grades: English A L&L: 5 Norwegian A Lit: 6 French ab initio: 6 Biology SL: 4 Math studies: 6 History HL: 5 EE: B ToK: A Bilingual Diploma awarded!
  3. I was searching for the assessment criteria for the Written Task 1 in English when suddenly this page showed up.
  4. That depends what you want to talk about for your ToK presentation. The RLS should just be either your opinion on the matter you're discussing or how you're personally involved in the issue as a learner.
  5. Detention and expulsion are not shown on your IB Diploma when you receive it, so I don't think the university will know, since the diploma is the only "proof" you'll have of your high school education. So I wouldn't worry too much about it
  6. I would advise against taking Norwegian A: Literature, as there are people in my class, who have spoken and written in Norwegian their entire lives, who have been struggling to get the 5 or 6 they want. If you want to learn more Norwegian, you should choose self-taught Norwegian B, as it is more fit for those who are still learning the language. One person in my class has lived in Norway for several years, but finally decided to take Norwegian B because she didn't feel fluent enough in Norwegian. Good luck on your decision!
  7. In Norwegian: "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, "Perfume" by Patrick Süskind, "Pan" by Knut Hamsun and "The Sharks" by Jens Bjørneboe! All books that I would highly recommend! They're all amazing and I will gladly read them again! In English: "Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe, "Pygmalion" by George Bernard Shaw, "Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi and "The Garden Party and Other Stories" by Katherine Mansfield! These books are the best and I'm so glad I got to read them in the IB.
  8. As for historiography, there are three main views on who caused the Cold War: 1. The traditionalist view: the belief that the Soviets were to blame, which was generally acknowledged by the West at the time. One historian of this belief is Arthur S. Schlesinger. 2. The revisionist view: the belief that the Americans were to blame, a belief generally acknowledged by the East. One historian who believed this was William Appleman Williams. 3. The post-revisionist view: the belief that neither of the sides was entirely to blame for the Cold War, an opinion often supported today. One historian with
  9. I agree with Corrina. You should definitely choose something that is within the history syllabus. That way you can use the knowledge you gained in the investigation during the exams. Women's rights during WWII could be an interesting topic.
  10. You could focus on how adultery is portrayed, both in the relationship between Tom and Myrtle and the one between Gatsby and Daisy. The fact that Tom cheats on Daisy with Myrtle is seen as something dirty and immoral, however Daisy's love for Gatsby is justified by the fact that they used to be together before. I don't know, might be worth looking into. Good luck!
  11. Your absence doesn't appear on the IB diploma, so I don't think it matters at all really. At least that's what my school told me - and then people started skipping.
  12. Like other people have already mentioned, the length of the book is never really a problem. There are a lot of things to say about Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but like Thrashmaster mentioned, you could also add Through the Looking-Glass if you feel like you need more things to analyze. As for the book initially being a children's book, that shouldn't be a problem at all! Someone in my class wrote about children's literature for her EE in Language A: Lit.
  13. If you only used one booklet then they will notice that one is missing if it gets lost anyway, so I don't think that's going to be a problem.
