  1. Hi guys, I was wondering for part 2 of the course - language and mass communication - is it ok to base my written task on visual language? My idea was to talk to use tv as the media platform and analyse visual bias on tv and stuff. Or should I include texts too? PLS RESPOND ASAP - it's due tomorrow.
  2. Hi guys, so I'm roughly three months in the IBDP program and I have issues with my Physics teacher. She has never been trained for teaching IB before, though she claimed to have taught high school students in the past. My school is still new and inexperienced. We haven't gotten our Physics books to this date. My teacher said she can't start teaching without the book but even if we did I don't think she'd be able to teach properly. You see, she's only revised level 8 syllabus to us - scientific notation, orders of magnitude, vector & scalar quantities, estimation, cancellation of labels. Th
  3. Hi, I'm currently in year 11. The subjects I'm positive I would take in HL are English Lang&Lit and Economics. I plan to major in English in the UK (England, to be exact) and I'm not sure whether it would be best to take Business & Management or Indonesian Language & Literature A2 as the third HL. I heard that Business & Management is considered as a soft subject in the UK. I don't want to ruin my chances to a very impressive university. Would it look better on my application if I take another A language or business & management as HL? Thank you!
  4. Sorry, I want to keep it private.
  5. I go to a public school with an internal IB-department. In the whole IB-section, years 1 and 2, we are 62 students. We don´t have the best possible teachers, I mean they are not for example IB-examiners or something like that but they have still taught the IB for some years most of them. Some in my class are doing very good, >40 points, and some are lazy and not doing as good. I would say the difference between how you succeed in the IB is mostly about how hard YOU work. Good teachers are just a nice thing to have, but the biggest factor is yourself. And you will find everything you nee
  6. Thanks so much!! Yeah I guess I would go for it then if I get the scholarship.
  7. Hey everyone. So I'm starting IBDP next term. I'm very conflicted about where to study. In my city the prestigious IB schools are crazy expensive. They can cost about $20000-$35000 a year. There's this new school that's just starting IB next term. If I go there, I'll be in their very first batch. They're really really new (I think they've only been around for 4-5 years) and right now their eldest class is grade 9. They don't have gr 10. They're also pricey; about $13000 a year. Their compound is 2 hectares and the teachers, I've heard, are very qualified (mostly Aussies and Americans). I have
  8. I actually dropped chemistry for IGCSE because I didn't feel that confident about doing it. I used to get Bs max. Do you have any idea if chem SL is easier than chem IGCSE? I know it sounds silly coz IB is supposed to be harder but I've heard people saying that IGCSE econs is easier than econs SL. Thanks btw!! I'm not in ib (not in IGCSE either) yet so I can't say for sure. But I think it will definitely be harder especially if you dropped chem. Ib chemistry (and other 11/12 grade chem) as such will be based on basic concepts learnt in previous classes. There will be more depth into topics alr
  9. Hi guys! So, this question is for people who have done IGCSE and transitioned into IB.. Currently, I'm doing IGCSE. I'm starting IBDP next term. I dropped chem for IGCSE because I already took the other two sciences I'm better at. I didn't feel confident about scoring well in chem because the max grade I used to get was B. If I felt really, really lazy about studying it I could even score a D in our monthly tests. (OUCH!!) Anyway I've been contemplating whether it was a mistake at all. There's a slight possibility of me studying electrical engineering (I'm okay at physics!) for uni since my

  11. Hey guys, I'm starting IBDP next term. The subjects I'm sure of taking are English A HL, Indonesian A1 SL, History SL. Here's the thing. I'm very conflicted about my future major, so I absolutely have no clue whether to take BNM/Econs, maths or physics in SL or HL level. I'm an okay student in all those subjects. I'm currently doing IGCSE and for mocks I scored: A*(90) in maths, B(75) in physics and B (70) in economics. B sounds very average but my econs and physics scores were probably third best in my class. Only 1 kid got 80 in physics. I don't think any got an A in econs. My teacher is pre
  12. Hey guys, I need help. I'm planning to take english A HL, indonesian A1 SL, history SL, physics HL. I'm currently doing IGCSE and for mocks I got A* for maths and a B in econs, though my score for econs was probably third best in my class. No one got an A. My econs teacher is pretty strict about marking. Which subject do you think I'll score better in; economics HL or maths HL? Thanks!
