  1. So i was looking for test prep websites when i came across this one; http://ineedapencil.ck12.org/ They have two full length practice tests (one before you practice and one at the end) I haven't started with the lessons and practice questions and all that because I'm going to do my first test today, but it seems to be a great website. I won't entirely depend on this but it'll keep me motivated to practice frequently I hope this helps someone else out there.
  2. my teacher recommended us not to do that. I don't think it's a rule or whether it would really affect your marks but maybe confirm it with your teacher
  3. what exactly were they protesting against? not sure if i got it right, but were the teens throwing stones at the army guys?
  4. There shouldn't be any specific tense for different types of text. I suppose it all depends on what your writing. Because sometimes if you purposely want to show some tenses you would write accordingly. Another tip; my teacher told me to think in French always. Not sure if you get that means or if you already do it, but I used to think in English then translate and write. But he told me this would work out better and I think it does, so that's what I do now. I suggest you to simply start writing. Put it down on paper, apply the tenses you've learnt and over time you'll get the hang of it. It's
  5. is anyone planning to go in January? I got wait listed by NYU (42 points predicted) but now I doubt I'll go there because without aid/scholarship its turning out to be too much for us :/ they say now their funds have exhausted or something so they won't be able to assist the remaining applicants. it's weird now because many of the good colleges don't accept in january. even UoT in canada doesn't.
  6. I don't think bullet points is the right way to go about it. It says analyse so I believe some explaining is required. Examples too, would show that you know what you're talking about. Probably not completely like an economics answer, but brief definitions and some forms of primary and secondary research. and then their functions and pros & cons. I don't think an analyse question would be worth very, very many marks. It's the evaluate/discuss questions that are worth more, from what i know. dude, ansoff matrix and driving forces? i don't think you have this right (or maybe i don't let m
  7. this paper was gooood. but i'm worried about p2. i had to leave some parts in that one due to the shortage of time, but otherwise the paper was good.
  8. there are formulas. our teacher had taught us. damn, i hate using my GDC. that's why i love p1 and hate p2 i use the TI-84 plus silver edition, which one do you use?
  9. No megan... They are not part of the exams anymore and we will not be assessed on them... So don't you worry... They have been replaced by bivariate analysis chapter and the new exam layout is shown in IB math SL specimen 2014... Google it what is bivariate analysis You haven't done it yet .... It is chapter 10 in the new IB math textbook... Talks about correlation date and equation of regression and how to calculate these... I would strongly recommend you to revise these because it is likely they will put 13 mark question in P2 on wednesday according to the specimen paper oh, i didn't know w

  11. no, i think we just had to define its properties (monochromatic and coherent)
  12. so you don't recommend watching the whole thing? every hour is precious during exam time i had only watched the first 6 mins but those seemed to interest me. is the rest really not worth watching?
  13. holy ****. just watched 6 minutes, but it seems really interesting. i agree with what they've said so far, about us wanting simply to get a college degree, doing this and that for college. and i was amazed to see the government expenditure on recovering jobs. that's some huge figure. i'll definitely watch the vid once i finish my math exam as much as i agree with what i've seen and heard so far, i'd like to add that my friends were telling me about something like that, which has been in india for years. there's a technology institute whose degrees people die to get. there's like 100,000's
  14. Yeah, i agree, 10% is really a big drop. I just made a quick estimate of the grade boundary for a 7, based on how difficult I think the tests were, and based on the grade boundary of the previous years. I think that the IB can only make a maximum 3% drop, i.e. if we are lucky, then maybe 68% is a 7. I just assumed that to get a 7, one needs to get at least 39/48 (for IAs), 32/40 (for paper 1), 55/95 (for paper 2), & 40/60 (for paper 3). That's how i made my calculation. But well, let's hope that the IB will be more generous than this that sounds like a good estimate. i think i've covered
