  1. I'm pretty sure you can use material from the options in paper 1. Our teacher told us to use some of the material from our abnormality option to flesh out parts of the biological level of analysis.
  2. Your active hours don't have to be a sports club. It's easier to stick to in a club, but you can just as well go running and track your progress or something like that.
  3. With UK universities at least, I found the prospectus/website often didn't make it entirely clear what the entry requirements were, so I emailed for clarification.
  4. You know you're on IB when you time lunch around when your maths teacher is free, not when your friends are free.
  5. Rant of today? Hmmm. Where to start? Well, Wuthering Wuther Wuthering Heights can go and die in a hole as dark as the souls of the charachters it's created, and please let the magical day when I can tell I've made gramatical error in german come before may... Also, maths is evil. However, I love chemistry, so
  6. At least you're taught... The (3) IB art students in my year are all in with A level classes. Once every 2 weeks or so one of our teachers will have a chat with us about our projects, and he is brilliant, but in general guidance is minimal. I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be allowed to do HLB. It depends on how much guidance you're being given in class. And bear in mind that HLB students are expected to display a great depth of analysis and contextual understanding. If it'd just be a matter of you telling your teacher that you're going to work in the HLB style rather than the HLA styl
  7. So far we've done: The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald. A Room With a View, Forster. The Cherry Orchard, Chekhov. (For our orals. No problems there except the brain-crushing boredom of A Room With a View.) But then the world of fun of our world lit... The Outsider, Camus. Antigone, Anouilh. Blood Wedding, Lorca. And after 3 months of existentialism/death/more death, my english classes are nap time intermingled with trying to remember what it was like to have the will to live.
  8. Creative's the hardest for me. I already spend half my life painting, but am not musical or creative in other ways in the least.
  9. During college time: sleep at 11 wake at 6.45 At the weekends: sleep about 1am wake about 10am I do love my weekend lie in. ^^
  10. Wow. Call me old fasioned but I'm amazed that schools even existed where you don't write notes by hand. My college allows laptops I think. There's one girl in my class who taps away into an ipad constantly, but it's not compulsory by any stretch. I'm old fasioned. Writing things out works for me.
  11. Chemistry is a science so whatever timetable slot they offer it in, it'd still count as your science I imagine, so long as you've got something else that would cover your group 6 (second humanity, second language or art). You need to talk to someone about it really. Chemistry is an awesome subject in IB, so I imagine you'd enjoy it. Good luck. =)
  12. 1. What is your real name? Alice J Schmitz 2. Where are you from? Maidenhead, England 3. How did you find out about IB Survival? I can't remember. 4. What made you register on IB Survival? So I could post on the forums and moan away my terror in the status updates. 5. When did you (approximately) register here? Around October 2010 I think 6. What is your favourite IB subject? Art/Chemistry. Complete dead heat between them. 7. When are you graduating? Summer of 2012 8. What are your plans for university? Architecture wherever I can get in. 9. What are your free-time hobbies? Free time?!? On IB?
  13. Papier mache. Newspaper rods to form a structure and then pad it out with bundles of newspaper. Clay. Modrock. There are a million easier ways to make it happen than using a small tree... I do like your idea though. Good luck with art. It's an awesome course in my oppinion.
  14. Sometimes I get really into it and passionate and think how glad I am to be on IB with my lovely IB group in an awesome college. Then I check out how much work I have to do and I seriously wonder if I should've just done A levels. But it is what it is. I'm a perfectionist on IB...
