  1. First, take into consideration your favorite works of literary merit. Then, do some research to find a common theme/idea/literary in the novels/short stories/poems you would be interested in writing on. Finally, refine your topic and write your essay. What are very popular IB books?
  2. You could get your nursing license, while not being an actual doctor and receiving that level of pay, you would only have to go to school for 4 years.
  3. The rule isn't rigid as I took Physics and Spanish SL this year, both of which are only a one year course at my school. There's 180 school days, minus about 40 for mandated state testing and various school events, leaving me with 140 days, divide that by 2 since we have class every other day. So I attended around 70 days of class and each class is an hour and a half, thus I only got around 100-110 hours of instruction.
  4. While IB seems so hard and time consuming, it actually isn't. If you manage your time well, you'll have no problem finding time to hang out with friends and do other activities you enjoy. I have plenty of time each week to either go see a movie, hang out with my friends at the park, etc, and I'm in band which is around 10-15+ hours on top of IB each week, so you should be fine. Make sure not to stress too much about it as there will be times when it seems like everything is due, but 9 weeks out of 10 you'll have time to have fun.
  5. I definitely agree with everything Brainiac said. It was honestly easier than my mock and the one practice test I did on my own. I did the option on paper 2 about atomic and thermo and am so glad that combination was together. Those were probably two of my best units, mainly because they coincide with the thermo and atomic units of AP Chemistry. Oh and opinions on the merry-go-round thing...? I was so confused and made sure not to choose that option for paper 2.
  6. From experience of taking the courses you have listed or similar courses I'd say if you're looking to get smarter then I'd take Chemistry. Geography is probably the easiest as some of it is common knowledge and its mainly memorizing and analyzing to write an essay. Visual Arts on the other hand, doesn't make you smarter per-say, but it advances your skills as an artist and you do a lot of art based research. The other thing is it depends on what you want to major in in college? If it's a more humanities based subject like Law, Economics, English, etc. then Geography is probably best for you. W
  7. Your schedule looks difficult, but very similar to most advanced students, which means it shouldn't be that hard to receive good marks on all of your exams. Warning: AP Chemistry and AP Physics are both very hard because they have a lot of content in a very short amount of time. Your other classes look fine, HL Math is difficult, but I'd assume if you're choosing to take it you're good at math and want to learn more, so that shouldn't be too bad. @Charlie: AP are Advanced Placement classes, another examination system used predominantly in the US. In most US schools you're required to take mo
  8. Do you mean electron configuration? It goes across the periodic table starting from Hydrogen and going down by period. 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d104p6
  9. Group 4 projects aren't sent to IB...? I'm almost positive its just a check if you did it and you get the points or you don't...
  10. I semi understand where you're coming from, my Group 4 project was me for Chemistry and one of my friends for Biology. Our overarching topic was plants and each of us did an experiment related to our science and then put them on our trifold board and came up with a five minute speech that explained our individual experiments and tied them together. For your project your supposed to do an experiment of some sort, I don't think you're allowed to just research something and write about it. My partner investigated how the complexity of a plants root system affects its growth by taking a plant at d
  11. 1. What is your real name? Garrett 2. Where are you from? Texas 3. How did you find out about IB Survival? Google 4. What made you register on IB Survival? Seemed like a good resource for help 5. When did you (approximately) register here? A couple months ago 6. What is your favourite IB subject? English or Physics 7. When are you graduating? June 4th, 2015 8. What are your plans for university? UT-Austin, UCLA, or Cal 9. What are your free-time hobbies? Band, JWAC 10. If you could change one thing on IB Survival, what would it be? Nothing the site is great!
  12. I don't think this is any acceptable topic as 20th century is very broad and you need a piece to narrow down your research on. There needs to be a focus on an art period and or a work of art. So for that reason you could narrow it down to something along the lines of: "To what extent do the sculptures of Eva Hesse represent the transformation from minimalism to post-minimalism?"
  13. Yeah, it's very subjective and being in SL Math currently, I'd say its a joke and the difficulty level needed to do well needs be raised ever so slightly.
  14. While it is all very subjective there is still a strong consensus on what is considered easy vs. hard. 1. Computer Science 2. History 3. English 1. Physics 2. Computer Science 3. Economics 4. Anthropology 5. Geography 6. Math 7. Environmental Systems 8. Math Studies.
  15. Lol, yeah I read it and honestly it's 600 pages of fluff and really advanced language. The movie is surprisingly good and definitely shortens the book up into a nice, concise, understandable plot line.
