  1. Hello! So I'm having a bit of a problem with my Chemistry Internal and my teacher isn't being much of a help. I would seriously appreciate any help with this. You see, my problem comes from my IA ideas.Our teacher asked us to think of IA ideas for Acids and Bases but I've been questioning its feasibility both practically and IA-wise. I really am in a bind here with the topics. I have some amount of time before our Chemistry IA idea is due, but I would prefer I finish my idea and do the experiment as early as possible to account for anything unexpected going by. My first idea is about rat

    Physics and Maths HL

    Hello! I'd like to share a plight with you. I was originally supposed to be go to Math HL, but, after I applied, it turned out our school cancelled the course due to lack of participating students. Now I had no choice in the matter, and certainly did not wish to transfer to Biology. I've been sending emails to some colleges in the U.K about the requirements for Math HL for entering Chemical or Mechanical Engineering or, to a lesser extent at least, Physics and Astronomy, and so far the replies, although small, have been devastating. Apparently, Maths HL is a requirement for many colleges
  3. So I've been working a bit looking up Venusian transits for my IA ideas and I found this video (It's only 7 minutes long). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwP8wCzbFLc Unfortunately, I've been having trouble understanding one part of it which I hope someone might help me get. What exactly is delta T? I understand it's the time difference, but time difference of what exactly? Would it be considered the time difference between the duration of observations at A and B from external ingress/egress (or could it be internal)? Or is it the time difference between egress of Observer A and egress o

    Hello! So I've been told that we should begin picking IA topics for Chemistry. I have some ideas, but I'd appreciate any feedback. I'm having trouble understanding the calibre of complexity that we should pick, and am not sure whether or not I should pick an experiment with more 'umpfh' than this, but here are my ideas. I'm hoping that your feedback will help me better understand what i'm going to stick with eventually. Thanks! 1.

  6. Hello! So I had a question, my TOK presentation is coming up and I'd like to ask, is the question: "To what extent can reason be applied to any methodology" a good KQ? If not, my other idea is: "What should be the basis for determining figures of authority and experts?" but I'm not sure how to begin with the second idea. I'd REALLY appreciate any help! Thanks!
  7. Hello! So I have a rather silly question, but I'm a bit confused on what I can write my WT2 on. Would I be allowed to write it on a book/literary work that we haven't taken, but is in the Prescribed Authors list like 'The Stranger' or 'The Importance of Being Earnest'? Because I'm quite interested in doing some of my WT's on them, but I've heard from some of the seniors that it's forbidden. Thanks!
  8. Hello! So I recently decided to do my EE on politics. I've been quite interested in this subject for a while now. However, our school lacks a current Global Politics teacher, and I'm frankly at a loss on what to do. I'm quite interested in investigating something like direct democracy in Switzerland or collectivisation in China. However, what I'm more interested in is something slightly theoretical, but I'm not sure if this is allowed. For example, am I allowed to ask something like 'To what extent was Bakunin accurate in his prediction of the fall of Communism' or something similar to that? L
  9. Hello, So I'm a Junior IB, and yesterday our school gave us our very first Physics paper 2 HL exam. I, along with most of the class, got a 3. It was terrible. This is arguably the lowest grade I've ever gotten in my life. I asked the teacher about the potential implications of a '3', and he told me that it's just the first exam, and he doesn't think it does me justice at all. But upon further investigation, I found out that this result will be placed upon my report card. Is this normal? Is a 3 out of 7 normal on the first exam? How will this effect my chances to go to a good college? I me
  10. Ok, so I started my IB orientation today and, luckily, had a blast. I found myself rather excited at the prospects of the programme. However, at one point, I was finally told my Physics teacher's name. Now I never really had many problems with teachers in school, but in this specific case, I can safely say that I will simply be unable to continue. This teacher taught our class the past two years. Unfortunately, I find his teaching methods stale, redundant, time-consuming, and, frankly, just plain unhelpful. Many students constantly present similar complaints to everyone who's willing to sit
