  1. Yeah, the markscheme includes points for justification. Nobody expects you to get it spot on, just generally the correct region/area with good evidence for why you think that is so.
  2. Definitely agree. Stay mentally prepared for the work coming ahead of you and you'll feel better. In terms of teachers treating you differently, that's mainly a problem for students who don't turn in anything: IA's, EE, TOK etc. At my school, the CAS coordinator got so tired of people waiting to even start turning in CAS forms until the end of year 2, so he made it a rule saying that you couldn't go to prom if you didn't have them in by February of year 2. As long as you don't annoy your teachers like that, however, teachers shouldn't be too much of a problem.
  3. Most of what you describe seems fine. I did my IOP on a short story from The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien, and I acted from the point of view of one of the characters where he's describing his paranoia in war in a series of acted-out diary entries. After about 9 minutes a transitioned into analyzing the performance in relation to the story. Your idea for a creative IOP seems like a great idea as long as you focus on the topic and implications found in the poem. The only thing I would suggest is that the analytical part could just be like a formal speech. This might create a better d
  4. Alright, so I am furious and panicking right now. I finished my TOK essay over a month ago, something I slaved over. I did the suspension of disbelief title, and back in September, I asked my teacher if having the arts as one of my two areas of knowledge was okay, and he said that was fine. I turned it in for him to submit. But now, guess what? I just read I'm not allowed to use the arts for that title. I don't know exactly the mechanics behind it, though. I focused on "music" in the arts, which is different from "theater" (which the title specifies), so can I get away with it? Or do I have to
  5. I know they have past paper questions but I'm not sure if that's it or not.
  6. I want to find past papers without stealing them. On reddit there are various links to specimen papers. Are these free for everyone to use?
  7. Hmm, I think you just gave me editing permissions. Here, I can just post my answers right now: How old are you? 17 How tall are you? 167 cm How many hours do you do physical exercise weekly? 0 (so <1) yeah i gotta get on that Hope that works!
  8. It says that I need permission to open it.
  9. First, I am very sorry about your issue. I wish the best for you in terms of social anxiety. Second, there are ways to achieve CAS despite your fears. As said previously, IB requires 150 hours of CAS total, though my school says at least 40 in each category. That means that (at least, for my school,) you could do 40 hours of creativity, 60 hours of action, and 50 hours of service. Every school varies on the per-category requirements, but typically it is still 150 hours overall. The IB requires one of your projects to be a "self-initiated" project, in which you create the activity you
  10. Here are a few examples: http://www.brentnell.org/home/ib-history/ib-internal-assessment-introduction/2017-ia-history-exemplars You should end up dividing your IA into specific sections. After your title page/title/whatever shows your research question, you start with section 1 and explicitly name it "Section 1: Identification and Evaluation of Sources". Here, you need to introduce your research question (and restate it even though you already state it in the title) and introduce two of your sources which you will evaluate for values and limitations with reference to origin/purpose/conten
  11. Our school is finalizing our written assignments for the IB, and we had written our reflective statements reflecting on one of the interactive orals seen that semester. However, one teacher has just notified us that we messed up, and we were supposed to reflect on TWO IO's in the reflective statement. I had not seen or heard of this anywhere, and there's another teacher at our school who doesn't think that's true. Regardless, the former teacher still holds his view that it's supposed to be reflecting on two. I really don't want to redo mine, since I only reflected on one. I'm at 389 words and
  12. My IA topic was enthalpy change of solution, which, although it does not focus on chemical processes between two "chemicals", my teacher said that if I explained it from a molecular perspective then it works. Now, enthalpy change of solution is a byproduct of lattice enthalpy and enthalpy of hydration. I was testing the enthalpy change of solution of transition metals going across the periodic table. The issue is that both lattice enthalpy and enthalpy of hydration generally increase in magnitude across the periodic table, so mathematically, the enthalpy change of solution balances out, result
  13. I had the same problem. My data had virtually no trend but my teacher said that if I could explain why this was the case with deep analysis, then I could show my scientific knowledge even without a clear trend. I wouldn't worry. Even if you don't have formal research or literature values, just explain the lack of a trend using what you know about the topic, and possibly explain mini-trends (i.e. an increase from one setting to another, followed by a more dramatic decrease, etc.)
