  1. I don't see why your dad's shop wouldn't work, although you should be careful as small businesses can be difficult. But I can't give you any advice since you don't have a topic so far, it seems, just an idea of which business you'd like to use.
  2. Could you explain how your school works? Because this really doesn't sound like the IB I know. How are you taking so many IB courses? And over the summer?
  3. In my opinion, a good essay outline is very detailed. My EE is in English Lit, so that's where my experience comes from, but the outline method I used came from here: Thesis Whisperer. It's a blog for students writing their thesis. The outlining method explained in that link was very useful for me, and I followed the instructions as best as I could and wrote around 2000 words of planning text and ideas. It's a good method because it allows you to structure your essay very rigidly which makes for easier first draft writing, and it offers some guiding questions which could lead into a good intro
  4. Hey! I'm in the middle of my EE too and I had a huge problem with figuring out how to write it. I found this website called Thesis Whisperer, which is a blog designed to help students write their thesis. Okay, so the EE isn't anywhere close to a thesis, but that specific post I linked had a very useful method for outlining your essay. I followed the instructions as closely as possible and ended up with about 2000 words of planning, which was so detailed that I was able to start wherever I wanted without going off track! My biggest problem is the stress of starting an essay, but when I am in 'p
  5. My school started EE prep about five months before summer holidays. Doing the whole thing over summer is probably your best choice. I completed all my CAS hours in the first year, which I recommend, because the supervisor forms and the reflections are a massive pain. Definitely keep doing extra curricular activities in your second year though! Don't drop those because you think you won't have enough time otherwise, you'll manage a few hours a week of activities. It's important to take your mind off things. The only thing to do to prep for TOK is buy the book early and do some extra studying. C
  6. Hi! It sounds great that you want to help us out! Sorry, I don't know anything about online jobs, but maybe a language blog? I hear from friends who get their language resources online that those can be quite helpful. And you might make some money from advertisements?
  7. Everything depends on what you want to do/study later in life. Are you more science oriented, or humanities? Without knowing you any better I can only give you my brief opinions on you prospective choices, which are that HL Bio and History are both VERY content heavy. HL English honestly isn't any harder than SL, you have to read a few more books, and write two more essays (at least you do for Lang Lit, which is what I take) than SL. Don't stress English. Sorry that I can't offer anything more substantial!
  8. Definitely, it's never too early to start. But I take a few of your subjects too, so I'll tell you how mine worked out. BTW, I am a northern hemisphere student, so I start my year in August and end in early June. English is four written task and a few more oral things... (FOA, IOC) Our teacher started us quite early on the written tasks, a few months into our first year. That was a good move, because you have to complete quite a few things, not just one big thing. I don't think English written tasks take too much effort since you don't have to research for them. FOAs are a pain but with a
  9. This sounds like a really interesting topic to me! Sorry I can't help you out much though, I haven't started my maths IA yet. I suppose you should browse the topics in your book, or ask the teacher?
  10. I suppose if you consider yourself good at mathematics, BM and Econ should be about the same difficulty. I only took a short intro course to Econ so I really couldn't tell you, but right now I am a HL BM student. The main difference between HL and SL BM in my opinion is that in HL, the IA must be done using primary research, which means you have to talk to the company in person. SL students are not required to do this, and I think their IA is a little shorter too. Otherwise, HL people just have more content, which isn't necessarily more difficult. Hope this was written on time to help!
  11. Seems like you haven't gotten much help here yet... But if you're still looking for an answer to your question: I'm a BM HL student myself and almost everyone uses the BM book by Paul Hoang, I have the 3rd edition. I'd recommend it. I can't recommend any revision guides though, sorry... I don't self-study, but I'd say reading the book, taking notes/condensing the information and doing all the exercises as well as you can is your best bet. I think that the vocabulary in BM is maybe the most important thing, you should try flash cards and quizlet. For my last test, all I did to revise was a
