  1. Heyyy crowooze, Firstly, I'd suggest you choose the first option in which you take Biology as an HL and Math AA as an SL. I say so because I wouldn't recommend taking maths AA as an HL unless you require it from a university/career perspective. In my experience, all my friends who wanted to become engineers or mathematicians chose Maths AA HL. Instead, I'd suggest choosing Biology as an HL because even though you don't require it to become a video game designer or an arts student, atleast you enjoy the subject and will be able to score better and handle the pressure of studying the subjec
  2. Hi, I"m currently in DP2, part of the M22 batch. Ideally, it's recommended to spend 2 hours on each of ur HL subjects and 1 hour on each of ur SL subjects every day. This could be focused on homework, IAs or exam prep even. To be honest, MYP prepares you for DP to a certain extent. However, there's a huge jump in the level and quantity of content. Imagine figuring your way around that as well as having to complete CAS hours, commit to extracurriculars and have a decent social life! So, try and get your ECAs out of the way in DP1 so you can focus on your studies in DP2. Let me k
  3. Hi, I think q1 is the best one out of all of them since it focuses on a single subject, and will give you a lot to talk about. However, the first part of the question might be too broad so I would suggest you either talk to your supervisor and discard it altogether. If made more specific, the second part of the q1 would serve as a good RQ. Hope it helped!
  4. All the math books are great, including Cambridge and others. I'm taking Math AA HL and am studying from the Oxford publication. However, Haese&Harris is also very well recommended. Additionally, for a 6-7 points reaching student, I'd like to point out that it's not only the textbook you study from that matters, rather the amount of practice you do daily, and the quality of past paper and higher level questions you successfully attempt. Hope that was helpful, good luck!
  5. Hi soymillks, I'm not sure what your thought process is exactly. However, I would only recommend taking sciences at IB level (as in HL) if you enjoy the subject(s) or plan on pursuing it in the future. If you are looking to take a subject based on it's difficulty, I'd like you to know that all subjects in IB (Higher Levels atleast) are pretty hard, and require time and commitment. Let me know if you have any further questions, good luck!
  6. Hi Kopytekstefana, Since you're highly interested in universities in Canada, you can look into this website https://www.universitystudy.ca/ as it is very thorough. Depending on what you want to take up in college, you can look into various programs and courses available here. Also, they list the requirements for admission (including the minimum scores and subject requirements). If you have one, I'd recommend talking to the university counselor at your school for further clarifications. Good luck!
  7. Hi nwvmp, Unless it is affecting the possibility of you getting into your dream college, I wouldn't recommend requesting a remark. The outcome is quite uncertain and definitely not worth the cost. Good luck!
  8. Hi aby22, I think your subject choices are a perfect fit for engineering, since the essential subjects include HL math and HL physics. However, to enter the top universities around the world, you will require top scores. Hence, I suggest you start looking into the entry requirements for the top colleges and keep them as a goal for you to focus on and achieve. Good luck!
  9. Hi Sophie! I’d strongly recommend asking your English teacher or the Extended Essay Supervisor about this, since they’re responsible for relaying the rules from the IB to you. Super excited about your topic of choice and good luck, maaya
  10. Hi y'all, I have a mini TOK exhibition for which I need to choose ONE object (from the attached list) that answers ONE of the 35 prompt questions (attached below). Any suggestions for which prompt or object I should choose or any advice for the same? Thanks in advance! TOK Exhibition Details.pdf 2.3 Creating the BQ2 exhibition (student handout 3) .pdf
  11. Hi Barberh, May I ask why you want to drop out of school?
  12. Hi Claud, I'd suggest getting a couple of different notebooks, one for attempting textbook questions, and one for important notes, and one for anything else you may require like additional practice. This is just a little piece of advice and hope it works for you. Good luck, Maya
  13. Hi Lanada, Apart from the reasons mentioned above, I think Physics HL will be the best option for you. Unless you can see yourself pursuing a career in dance in the future, it isn't a very prospective option. However, since you liked physics in your old school and are currently on a level 5, I'd say Physics HL is a safe bet. Also, don't get discouraged by the amount of work entailed with a subject because if any subject is taken at a Higher Level, a lot of work is a given. As long as you devote enough hours and are dedicated, I think you'll be excellent at physics and can easily achieve a
  14. I'd recommend a durable backpack that has thick straps so as to be long-lasting and not be a burden on your shoulders. You wouldn't require a very large backpack as there's rarely an instance when you have to carry all the IB books, since they're pretty heavy and the unfortunate occasion doesn't seem to arrive very often.
  15. Hi ClassOf2022, That is a completely acceptable idea, no worries! I'd also like to add that this is a very noble and unique idea and I hope it becomes a grand success. Good luck!
