  1. I'd recommend you pick a problem from your own life/ a friend's life that can be solved by using a computer programme. I'm really into yearbook/school magazine publishing, so I chose to do one which collects students' contact data and messages for the senior section of the yearbook. Students can also use it to submit articles if they like, and editors can search student details/messages by parameters and articles by genre, themes and tags. The intended user is my coeditor from my previous school. My tip: Pick a problem you face in real life.The calorie counter thing wouldn't work, in my opinio
  2. Hey, can you post those questions up? Maybe people in the forum could help with them?
  3. My interpretation was almost completely different! Themes: I talked about modern society (it's a post-modern text) and how there was a conflict between cultures ( French and English), and how children growing up in ''melting pot'' societies often felt frustrated (Leo's example). Even though I wish I'd written more about the egg as a symbol of this frustration. Oh and ofcourse probably the sexual freedom present there. Characterization: Austin: (As the point of view is third person limited omniscient, the descriptions kind of show Josephine and Leo from Austin's perspective) I thought that Au
  4. I don't really know how it works, but try to keep the word limit between 1400 and 1470, just to be on the safe side.
  5. I think it'd be better if you learn to mark your own papers by looking at the marking scheme and the criteria, since that will help you answer the questions better. But if you still need someone, pm me.
  6. A lot of people get scared by the prospect of doing a commentary on something they have never seen before, but really, paper 1 isn't hard at all, and a 7 is relatively easy to get. What is required of you: You'll be judged on five criteria, each with five markband descriptors. The highest mark you can get is 25. The criteria and the requirements to achieve five marks in each are listed below. Criterion A : Understanding of the Text 5 : Excellent understanding of the text # perceptive understanding of the thought and feeling expressed in the text as well as some of the subtleties of the text
  7. Bring in the Aristotelian model of the tragedy, and explain how John Proctor fits in each criteria.
  8. Your grammar doesn't seem to be too good. (AN year ?) You should definitely get your essays proofread by someone who has better grammar.
  9. I just had mine on Monday, and let me tell you, it is NOT scary at all! The examiners are really nice!
  10. iBS2012, this method is compulsory from May 2013, and all schools will follow it from then on. However, schools were given an option to incorporate that this year as well, though I can't understand why any school would want to do that, visiting examiners are so much better. I can't help you in any way, since our school hasn't yet switched, but I think you should talk to your DPC about it. Take your id and pw with you, and log in in front of him. He will know what to click on, etc.
  11. Hey, Thanks a lot! My Mock is tommorrow, I'm spazzing. Sigh. Anyone done Shadow Lines by Amitav Ghosh? Its a beautiful book but also fairly longer and more complicated than the other novels. With that we got Annie John by Jamaica Kincaide and Siddartha by Hermann Hesse and technically Remains of the Day (forgot the author's name...) but we haven't even done it in class and I don't plan on it. Haha, good luck on your mock, mine is tomorrow too (both paper 1 and paper 2). Our school's doing the drama options, so we have The Crucible (Arthur Miller), A Man For All Seasons (Robert Bolt), Galil
  12. I take IB computer science and we do java. Personally I think it's not really that hard. It takes time to learn it initially, but once you get the hang of it, I think it's pretty simple
  13. War and Peace - The longest book I left halfway Other long books I've read - Pillars of the Earth, World Without End, and Fall of Giants (All by Ken Follett)
  14. I think the hardest would be Chemistry HL History HL Comp Science HL I see math HL is perceived to be one of the hardest and so is Art, but I think those are my 2 favourite courses ( I take art SL, but the only real difference is in the quantity of work produced)
  15. The topic seems fine, at first glance. But - 1. It is a very common topic. If you want to score well in a topic such as this, or something like abortion, child marriages, incest, euthanasia, you need to have a new way of approaching the topic, and you need to bring in some personal insight, or a new point of view which isn't stale already. I'd recommend something less cliche, like maybe something you are passionate about, like music, art, dance, whatever. (Unless you conduct research on cures for human diseases after school, then you may actually have an insight into the topic) 2. It isn't as
