  1. Version 1.0.0


    There are a bunch of essay samples and outlines that some I wrote myself, some I compiled from other sources. Most of the learning outcomes have 4 studies or more, except for the general learning outcomes for SCLOA, which I was a little lazy with. Otherwise, these notes are pretty extensive. Hope this helps!
  2. Psych HL and Bio HL, lowkey freaking out because of the sheer volume of writing and I'm worried I won't be able to do Bio well because I get tired very easily 😩
  3. I was wondering whether the Miller-Urey experiment needs to be known? From what I remember, we were tested on it in school and we did learn about it in class, and it's on bioninja as well, but I can't seem to find it on the syllabus itself. Does anyone have any idea? Thanks!
  4. I'm taking two sciences (Chem and Biology HL), and personally, biology is not hard for me, it's just a lot of content. Chemistry, on the other hand, is very challenging for me. In general what you have to keep in mind with sciences is that you need to constantly be at it. Don't skip out on studying for in-class tests, and try to revise a little bit every day. This is not something I did so I'm regretting it a lot. I'm not sure about physics though, because I have heard that it's very challenging. Also, if you don't like it, it might mean that you will struggle even more and not end up doing as
  5. No, only the main content counts - it's pretty much the same requirements for all EEs. But keep in mind that science EEs can have a lower word count, but you need to reach at least the minimum, or have 3200 + words. This is just based on my experience and what my supervisor and EE coordinator told us, so double check with your supervisor!
  6. Depends. How much raw data do you have? I had a lot of raw data, and I mean a LOT, so my supervisor said it was sufficient to include an example of the raw data in my appendix, and I just had my processed data in my report. You should double check with your supervisor because they will have a better idea. Hope this helped!
  7. You can use conformity rates as an example of how phenomena vary cross-culturally, but you have to discuss and introduce the cultural dimensions first. It's not sufficient to just describe conformity rates.
  8. I think Trinity has a very good reputation and is well known for things like research, and maybe good in terms of academics because they have very high entry requirements. Might want to do a little research and check out the course itself and see if you find it interesting, or if it's what you want.
  9. Thank you everyone for your suggestions! I guess my situation is a little weird because in some cases I understand the topics but not the IB style questions, which would be the case for paper 2, but some topics I'm a little shaky with in terms of my foundation, which would be calculus and a bit of statistics and probability. I guess I'll do a bit of both, practice a bunch of paper 2 questions and go over topic 5 and 6 again with simple problems and then attempt the IB style questions. Thanks a lot!
  10. Hey there, With less than 2 weeks to the math exam, do you guys have any suggestions for math prep? I need to get a 6 in math, and I have the most trouble with paper 2, and some calculus, and I've been doing past papers but I get a bit tripped up with the questions. I feel that just doing past papers is a bit inefficient, do you guys have any suggestions? Thanks!
  11. The difficulty of the subjects really depends on the individual, so I would suggest having a look at the syllabus and trying to see if you can wrap your head around it. Generally, I think Math HL is very hard compared to SL. Are you doing an extended mathematics course or anything like that? If you aren't, then I would again suggest looking over the course syllabus, but all in all, HL is very challenging. As for biology, personally I find biology HL relatively easy and doable, but this really depends on the individual. I know people who find biology HL very hard, but chemistry HL doable,
  12. Hi there, I'm taking HL Bio, Chem and Psych, and honestly, psychology at HL is not that hard. There's a lot of memorization and essay writing required, but I believe that if you're interested in the subject memorization will be easier because you understand the concepts. The concepts themselves aren't hard, the main issue is just memorization. At HL, for paper one you have 4 essay responses, 3 of them being short responses and 1 long essay response. Paper 2 requires two essays from both option units studied, and paper 3 involves answering 3 questions based on a study that is provided.
  13. With maths, the only thing you can really do is do a bunch of questions. When you're getting the questions wrong, are you spending time going through the markscheme and trying to understand it? This is crucial. Then you should go back to the textbook questions and try again, there's really no easy way to get good at math. Just a lot of practice. If you need help with understanding concepts I would advise you to start going for lessons or extra help outside of school to try and understand the method and applications of concepts, if not you can always ask your teacher questions and things l
  14. thank you, but I guess what's stressing me out is not being able to reach my goal and go to my university, so it's not a particularly good motivator thank you very much for the reply and the kind words though!
  15. Hi there. I'm feeling hopeless at this point with less than 3 weeks - some of my subject grades are not at where they need to be to meet my conditional offer. It's really crucial that I meet this offer but at this point, I feel that anything I do will be useless. I'm just generally feeling very frustrated and hopeless. I can't take afford to feel like this anymore because I've been feeling like this since March and I've taken breaks from my studying but going back to studying on and off. I don't really know what I'm asking for here, this might be a bit of a vent. But I really do feel lik
