  3. Talking about Abortion: Pro-Life or Pro-Choice The conversation surrounding abortion has always been controversial. Even in the 21st century, the thought of discussing abortions in some communities has been tabooed. Unfortunately, this so called 'taboo' has been the reality of some women - whether it be the result of unprotected sex, sexual assault or fear of keeping the child, millions of women have had to choose between life or choice. Some factors that may affect the final decision include, but are not limited to, gender, religion and society. Dialogue of abortion and the pro-life and
  4. A written profile is baisically a resume of some achievements and skills of yours that you think would make you perfect for the IB program. For example, if you participated in any competitions (Spelling Bee, Mathematica), if you were in the student council at your school, if you were part of the French Club or if you're a part of any athletic teams. These are just a few ideas and examples - there's so much you can put down. You can also write out some skills you have - for example, if you were a part of a certain team for a specific amount of years, you can say that this shows you're dedi

    Just incase anybody wanted to know the average grades/scores that students internationally receive in IB, I've found a PDF with statistics from IBO - this is the most recent PDF I could find and the statistics have been taken from the May 2016 session. I've listed the page numbers of some information depending on what you may want to check - Page 9: Extended Essay statistics Page 10: TOK statistics Page 16: Statistics on number of points awarded to candidates Page 17 to Page 22: All subject grade distributions (including mean grade + % of candidates receiving grades

  8. Although I'm not much help, I really hope you're able to finish your IA! My thoughts and prayers are with you! Good luck!
  9. I don't know much about Comp Science but like CSYoon, I definately recommend HL Mathematics as a course to take. I've heard the mathematics used for Computer Sciences in university is the hardest so I'm sure that the curriculum for HL Math would prepare you. If you also want to take sciences, taking either (or) Physics and Chemistry (HL or SL) would probably be a good idea as well. Remember to check the required prerequisites for the program at different universities just incase. Good luck!
  10. Nice course choices! I'm in 11th grade and I'm also taking HL Bio, SL Math and HOA! The courses themselves aren't too bad but definitely requires time and dedication! Good luck!
  11. Questions regarding your personal profile component should directly be asked to the school of application. Depending on if you're trying to get into the pre-IB program (applying in 8th grade) and the IB Diploma Program (applying in 10th grade), grades needed and the criteria for acceptance varies. If you're trying to get into the pre-IB program at your school, they will be probably checking your grade 7 marks and learning skills (responsibility, initiative etc.) . Normally, depending on the school, they'll accept students with 75 to 80+ average. If you're applying into the IB program in
  12. I'm doing French B right now and frankly, I hate it. I don't hate French itself - I've been studying it for 9 years now but for me personally, IB French (SL) is just a tad too much. I feel like its almost super overwhelming, because French has so many components to it and there's so much IB wants us to know. The comprehensions stress me out. During practice comprehension tests, I always add too many words or too little; for the Orals, I can hardly formulate a sentence in English so I don't know how I'm gonna it in French. Many of my friends dropped out of the program after going thr
  13. IB is definitely not for everyone; time management and extreme dedication is required. Regardless, even if it was for you, your mental health comes first. If its affecting your health, its definitely a valid and serious reason for you to be able to drop the program. If it were me in that situation, I would definitely get my parent/guardian to talk to the councillor. In my school, we are allowed to drop out of IB. Our councillor definitely will go out of his way to convince us to stay, but in the end, its your choice. Also, I'm pretty sure you can drop the program anytime. I h
