  1. Make sure you talk about all the characters in your extract. You need to mention all the characters in your extract in the beginning, and describe briefly what each of them do in that scene, e.g. this is the scene where character x, y, and z discover w's death. Don't focus too much on what happens. It is important to describe whatis happening in the scene, but what's more important is to analyse and interpret the events. Hope that helps
  2. We were told to look for specific features and find lines throughout the extract that support it, for example, finding examples of alliteration throughout the entire extract and commenting on its effect and purpose, and then moving onto tone and going through the whole extract, then dicton, etc. IB prefers to give candidates a better grade to a sophisticated approach then just stepping through in chronological order in the extract. I'm going to have mine in about 2 weeks, but I'm having a practice one this week so I'm kinda worried, but I'll manage
  3. I go to school in Fiji, in the South Pacific and our school holds MUN each year, inviting schools around the city to take part. It's amazing. This year I was the chairperson of Security Council and I had an unforgettable experience, and even ended up getting the award for the best chairperson! I really encourage everyone to take part.
  4. I got involved in the Model United Nations and our school play. I ended up with about 300 Creativity hours. And I loved every second of it; I made new friends, leant so many things, and got lifelong experiences. Pretty amazing.
  5. @Matthew Sinclair, which University are you going to in the end? Did you get a scholarship? What were your SAT/IB scores? Sorry for the questions, I'm just curious
  6. Allende's The House of the Spirits, Lorca's House of Bernarda Alba and Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children. Almost everyone else hated Midnight's Children, but I loved it
  7. Well thank you so much for your help. You have no idea how much more confident I am about doing this thing now. And I really hope it all works out for you as well Good luck
  8. Hmm okay. That sounds better. Thanks so much I'm thinking of linking the relationship to the two main female characters. I guess that's a little better right? Btw...did you do your EE in English A1?
  9. Wow thanks. That's even more help than my supervisor has given me so far! Okay, so what exactly do you mean by saying "finding other words from aspects"?
  10. I've chosen to do my EE on Ann Patchett's Bel Canto...it's a book about an opera singer at a dinner party where there is a terrorist attack and the guests soon start building friendships. My title is "An exploration of the relationship between opera and terrorism in Ann Patchett's Bel Canto". Is it too broad/too narrow? Does it need to be more specific? Help would be so appreciated
