    Dentistry Europe

    You can do what's called a foundation course for UK universities. It's essentially a course you take the year before actually beginning the degree where you catch up on the fundamentals you didn't learn so that once you start a dentistry course you'll be on par (more or less) with the other people in the course. You'll need to look into which universities have them and if you meet the general requirements, though.
  2. 23: We can't conclude that A is liquid and B is vapor because we're not given any other information than this graph. We could be at conditions where both are in the liquid phase but A has a greater vapor pressure, or both are in the vapor phase with A having a greater vapor pressure. So this rules out A and B. C is incorrect because vapor pressure and boiling point are inversely related. When a species has a higher vapor pressure, its pressure is closer to atmospheric pressure. This lowers the boiling point because it has to overcome less force in order to boil. This only leaves D, which

  4. When I was in IB my main sport was martial arts, and I did a lot of volunteering at a local aquarium/science museum.I also had a part-time job during my first year of IB, but I left after nearly a year for personal reasons. I'd say nearly everyone who did IB at my school was in some sort of activity, whether it was through school or externally. In fact, you'd have a hard time finding someone who only went to school and did nothing else; universities basically require you to have some sort of extracurriculars so you might as well do something. Nowadays I play ultimate frisbee, bicycl

  6. Probably not. But even if it were, why would you want to do this? What will you do for the remaining two years? Life is more than school and studying. Go enjoy your summer.
  7. I'm gonna flat-out disagree with you here. Literature is not useless. Sure, you may not enjoy reading or sitting down with a bunch of poems and looking for plot devices or important quotes. I don't like doing that either. But to completely dismiss it is short-sighted. It's very important to be a well-rounded person in order to succeed academically and socially. The person who started this topic wants to study physics. Mac117 gave a great argument for why literature helps with abstract thinking. Physics, math, and anything really at its highest levels and at its core requires an enormous a
  8. You can, but you'll be at a big disadvantage over applicants who do have HL math or its equivalent, have to take some sort of foundation math course at your university, or be restricted to places where HL math isn't a hard-line requirement, which will cut out the majority of top schools if you're aiming for that. Talk with your school about taking HL math because it's pretty important in chemical engineering, speaking from experience.
  9. Well you never told us what you want to study. That influences it a lot: for example, if you want to study engineering, most of the Ivies are terrible for that, whereas they'd be great if you wanted to study a hard science or a liberal arts field. So that's reason one why I can't and won't. Even then, I can't because what's important to me in a good university might be a deal breaker for you. You need to do research into this. Find out what schools are good for what you want to study which includes how connected to industry or graduate schools they are and how many students go on to get jobs i
  10. No university in the US does this, not even less-prestigious ones. If you're applying to a new one you'll need to send them all of your grades, including ones from your first university. Since you're applying as a new student and not as a transfer student, you'll need to go through that process which also includes standardized tests if you haven't taken them, recommendation letters, essays, and other things. Keep in mind the top schools in the US admit a very small number of students and even fewer international students (which I'm presuming you are, please correct me if this is wrong).
  11. It's not super complicated at all! Materials are pretty cheap too. All you really need are a set of cross-stitch needles (sewing needles won't work), fabric (I like working with 14-count Aida fabric because it is nice and easy to use), and floss (DMC is a good brand). If you're brand-new to it, I'd suggest starting with small pattern kits that you can buy at craft stores or online. They come with a needle, fabric, a pattern, and the amount of thread you'll need to do the project. Once you're comfortable enough with that it's easy to make your own patterns and make your own stuff. There are vid
  12. Perhaps you could extract a different compound? There's plenty of other stuff in wines, such as tannins, sugars, or organic acids, which won't pose inhalation issues. Of course, you may need to do some additional research on how the extractions would work, since separating SO2 would be different than separating a large biomolecule or sugar, and see if it's feasible with what equipment you have available.
  13. I recently got back into cross-stitching, which I did a lot of when I was younger. In the past several months I've stitched several things including a periodic table, motivational graduation quotes with Studio Ghibli characters on them, and right now I'm stitching a father's day present and high school graduation present for my dad and younger brother respectively.
  14. Now I'm not an IB grader so I can't say with 100% certainty, but unless they asked you to derive a specific summation formula to use in the problem, then any pattern you come up with that gives consistently correct answers should be fine. For example, if the question was just "find the 100th term" and they didn't also say "use the summation formula 5+4n for n greater than or equal to 0" then your pattern is fine and you should still get full marks. If they DID say "derive this particular summation formula and use it to find the 100th term" and you didn't, then you won't get those points. Does
  15. This should be fine. The only way I could see you running into trouble would be if 2+1 = 3, and 3 + 1 = 4 was HL material that isn't expected of you to know but even then you'd probably be okay.
