  1. Hi! 4 HLs here. In the US, most colleges will not give you credit for SLs, and you generally need to score at least a 4 (or higher, depending on the school) to get credit. From my experience, US schools are a little different from the rest of the world, and they don't put as much stock into the precise choices and scores of your courses. We generally don't have conditional acceptances, so you have more give in your choices. So your choices are more based on what you think looks nice on your transcript, and the scores themselves on the exams don't actually matter as much. Depending on what
  2. I'm a little confused by your wording - freshman year of IB, exams in May 2021, SL courses, and the exam being "pushed back" from May to April? It sounds like you're in MYP, which is a five year programme for students aged 11-16, that does not have SL and HL courses, and exams (eAssessments), like DP exams, are on an official, scheduled period (November and May sessions). The exams can't be moved back. Also, freshmen can't take the DP, because it's for 16-19 year old students, and in the US, that's typically kept for juniors and seniors. Dropping out of IB shouldn't have any real rep
  3. I'm really not looking to engage you on all of these topics, as I am far too busy studying for exams to do so, but I just had to note that your example of "anti-white rhetoric" is really quite uninformed and misplaced. The source you linked limits the information provided about the "No White People Day," and heavily uses rhetorical language to angle the story, rather than just stating the facts of the situation - specifically, in these uses: "Students interested in 'social justice'" (Paragraph 1) Implying that social justice is a superficial or ridiculous concept, rather tha
  4. It's really up to what you think you would benefit from most. If you think you'll need the extra study time and would rather have a little more sleep each night and more after-school free time, take study hall. If you like the idea of having a more laid-back class doing something fun that you love while at school, take concert band. Concert band will mean you have more studying to do at home, but it will give you a break from all the IB courses (and from being around all IB kids) during the school day. I chose to stay in my school's concert band for both of my years in IB. For me, persona
  5. So some of y'all might've seen my post awhile back about changing subjects after IB1 and not taking History HL. I've been looking at doing either History SL (which would be a 2-year SL) or Psychology SL (1-year) for my Group 3. I talked to my coordinator about it and he claims I would have to take History SL (out of those two) because I "need to have at least one 2-year SL" for the IB. Here's the thing though: if I were to leave History HL as is, I would have four HLs, and two SLs, both of those SLs being 1-year SLs. I told my coordinator this and he says that one of my HLs would "count as an
  6. When you procrastinate homework on a forum about school When you go on holiday and still, all you talk about with your friends is school..... When your first thought on holiday is that you now have enough free time to start preparing for non-IB standardised tests/etc.
  7. I'm not going to respond to all 37 individually (that would be painstaking), but from my understanding, the decision would need to be made based off of this: 1. Are there two cultures listed in the topic? It must be a comparison of two cultures with links. 2. Are they distinctive musical cultures? The two cultures should have no possible influence on each other. They should be entirely unrelated. For example, two different eras of jazz would not be appropriate. A comparison of one era of jazz with Gregorian chant would be appropriate. 3. Are they specific musical cultures? As fa
  8. I've been considering changing one of my subjects after IB1, but I'm not really sure what's the best option for me. My current subjects are: English Lit HL Spanish B SL Music SL Bio HL Math HL History HL At my school, all IB students are usually required to take History because the only Group 3 subjects we offer are Psychology SL and History HL, and Psychology is intended (for us) to be a Group 6 replacement. My problem is that history is one of my weakest subjects. I've taken two AP history classes in the past two years and I struggled in both. I'm
  9. Creativity - I've got jazz band, a concert band, 2 theatre things, an improv team Activity - marching band.... I'm not a physical activity-inclined person, if you can tell LOL Service - everything I do for National Honour Society, volunteering with children's activities at a local library, volunteering with production/setup in my school's auditorium, Link crew Still trying to figure out where some of my other activities fit within those three (quiz bowl, book club, GSA).
  10. For Norwegian B: If you already have a moderate vocabulary, seek out online resources. When it comes to learning a language, as long as you aren't at the very beginning of learning it, and you have most grammatical and pronunciation basics down, it's usually fairly easy to pick up vocabulary on your own. Some methods for doing this: Use Quizlet to find and use other people's vocabulary lists and use those Read children's books or books geared towards to language-learners of Norwegian Some teachers upload their content online for their students' reference purposes and whatnot
  11. My school is kind of varied. My grade/year sees IB kids as ridiculously smart, constantly stressed and exhausted, and having no free time. The grade/year above us sees IB kids as really arrogant and elitist. Both stereotypes are semi-true, depending on which IB kid you're talking about
  12. 1) I feel like whoever's saying it to me is being condescending. 2) Intensely. I think religion specifically often ingrains a lot of concepts within people to an extent which can be hard to break away from and form independent thoughts from. 3) Nothing, really. 4) Nothing I can think of.
