  1. One good strategy to get yourself in the mood of studying, is to find something that you will only use or go to when you are studying. I personally Have this mug which I only drink from (caffeine of course) when I want to study. you can also find a place, other than your room or your house to study, I personally find going to a local coffee place helpful, it sort of gets me out of the mindset of boredom while studying. And the most important rule to remember, is Do not medicate your stress and procrastination with more procrastination. Having said this, I think your schedule is excellent, it s
  2. Well, I go to an IB school in Amman, Jordan. However, the CAS activities that we have are provided by the school for us through cooperating with organization in Jordan. I don't know the stance of these cooperations in taking in volunteers in an individual basis, because, I believe they would rather take volunteers who are somewhat affiliated to an organization or an educational institution.
  3. Sweden Universities are not the first to do that, most Universities in Jordan do not consider the IB as equal to the national program, IB students, most of them at least, are unable to access Jordanian University because a vase majority of the seats have been taken.
  4. This is evident to exactly how tough the IB really is, yet most universities fail to recognize the effort that we students have to put in completing the IB Diploma. Having said that, I do empathize with that student. Schools are inherently incapable of treating students fairly or accentuation their areas of strength (Not all of them of course)
  5. Its relieving to know that I am not alone in this, I am moving to a new country who speak a language that I don't know, and it is both intimidating (I will do self study for A1 SL) and exciting (a new experience). The good thing is that I will leave my current IB school, a school which I hate greatly (Friends and Peers not included in the Hate)
  6. I have finished my IB 1 year, but we are moving to a different country, with a different language which will be problematic, but they have every subject I need, apart from A1 SL Which I will be happy to do as Self Study. I would be interested to know how moving to another school worked with you eventually.
  7. If you are looking for in-depth course companion books, Try the IBID Textbooks, this is an Australian Based Publishing Company. But IBID themselves are not sufficient enough, you need revision books for exams, which are terse and short in length (they save a great deal of time) for these our school uses teh oxford revision series. Once I looked through a test copy of IB Physics Text book published By Cambridge, ordered by the school, and I thought they were better than the IBID which the school sold us. This is the link to their site http://www.cambridge.org/us/education/ib/index.html Basica
  8. Well, I am planning to do my EE in chemistry and my exams are due in may 2011, I don't even have a proper research topic (suppose you can say I am slamming into walls at the moment) But I would never do it on a theoretical basis, it would be better if it were done on a History or any other subject that does not require experimentation, if experimentation was to be so challenging. My advice to you is; you still have time, don't rush, if you couldn't find a proper experimental research question just change the subject, I know I well if time was running out. It is worth noting that I have a back
  9. Well, it might help you to know that bees communicatw through body language that highly resembles dancing I hope this link is of help http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/entomology/apiculture/PDF%20files/1.11.pdf
  10. For me, the hardest is Action. But it differs from one person to another. All I know, is that the majority of people don't struggle with Service because its too easy to struggle with.
  11. I promise my self rewards for finishing something, such as a food or allow myself to go to the mall to buy sth
  12. I don't have any experience with block scheduling, but from what you described, I can tell that it won't be much fun, 90-100 minutes are just too long. If I were you, I would take a good night sleep, because it is as I imagine will be more challenging than the normal schedule in which a class is 55 minutes long, but it will also help you keep up with homework better.
  13. I will be one of the last students to finish in my school because I am taking Business This year, the business people were so lucky, too lucky if u ask me, Business was one of the first
  14. I went to Qatar MUN 2010 which was awesome, It was a truly cosmopolitan MUN, and there were a lot of IB students in that MUN. The only bad thing about it is the fact that it ended.
  15. Hands down, The Da Vinci Code is the best book of all times, but I was also very gripped by Khaled Hosseini's 2 books which are A thousand Splendid Suns (addressed women's rights hugely) and The Kite Runner. Khaled Hosseini has this amazing ability in integrating his passion towards his native country and his love of writing fictional storied.
