  1. we have a brilliant teacher and i worked really hard. we in fact did 4 whole topics: french revolution and napoleon, alexander II and III, the Spanish Civil War, and Mussolini's rise/rule. those were our higher topics and for paper 2 we did: rise and rule of hitler, mao and lenin and causes, practices and effects of WW1, WW2 (europe and pacific), Spanish Civil War and Chinese Civil War We covered more than enough, way more than we needed to and i worked really hard. our class was just incredibly unlucky with the subjects that came up. Yeah exactly my point. AII&AIII are parts of a topic w

  3. We did... Prussia/Germany (18??-1933), Russia (1854-1924) and Italy (18??-1943) (which I loathed and swore not to do, and did not study for). are you tz1 or 2? I'm guessing TZ2? Europe. well then you were really lucky, there were loads of questions on germany that you could do and one or two on prussia, i did spanish civil war, mussolini and the tsars, therefore there was minimal to do! its all dependent on what topics you do.... Why would your teacher ignore Germany?! That's madness (and no, not Sparta)! It's like... the centerpiece of Europe, both geographically and in the historical pe

  6. I agree, also the provisional government failed in 1917 therefore all you could do was base it on short term causes in terms of the PG. it was a horrible question!!
  7. i completely agree. i was utterly freaked by it especially as ive been studying all the past papers; november and may, since 2002 and the questions were so different. there was nothing on spanish civil war, nothing on mussolini and nothing on the tsars which were 3 out of the 4 topics i studied. i struggled to find 3 questions to do and ive never had that problem before. it was a horrific paper. i'm so angry because of the amount of studying that needs to go into a subject like history, and the board could be generous enough to give students a question that they could answer. some people will
  8. So it has been 24 hours, what did people think of it? Personally, i think it was the hardest paper that has ever been released by the IBO. I spent a lot of time looking at past papers and this was without a doubt that most difficult one that i have seen. But i know that people study different topics so maybe it was just me with my topics that found it hard. How did everyone find it?
  9. Post by: Mahuta I have merged and edited different topics talking about Papers 1 and 2, all further discussions will take place here. Good luck. I'd advise maybe getting rid of you're thing over that leader until 24 hours is over. My opinion though. Feel free to discuss after the 24 hour time restraint this is a 2010 thread (last year)
  10. i thought it was a really horrible paper, i spent like 10 minutes just choosing a question and spent around 20 minutes planning the essay, the whole time wondering whether i should do the other question instead. i then wrote the whole essay while thinking that i should have done the other question, then when i finished the paper i finally decided it was the right one to do. really terrible paper for a subject that isnt that hard normally
  11. All I can recall immediately is that one of the Paper 2 Section A questions was about the Binomial Theorem. There was one with matrices where you had to find m and n where MX=N then you had to solve the equation
  12. i can't believe you are doing four Higher Level subjects. you must be dying.

    wasn't question 9 the probability dice one?
  14. I think i got a similar answer for the standard deviation for the vector equation you had to put the points equal to each other so: r = a+tb i cant remember what the co-ordinates were exactly but for example r = (i-j+k) +t (2i +2j +5k) = L1 r = (5i -2j+3k) +s (4i-j+3k) = L2 So to figure out the co-ordinate of the point of intersection you would have to find t and s by doing the following: 1+2t = 5+4s 1+2t = -2-s 1+5t = 3+3s and use algebra to solve. then once you have found s and t you can substitute it into the original vector equation and find the point of intersection.
  15. That trapezium question was absolutely impossible, i couldn't do any of it! I think it was a really really difficult paper, one of the hardest in the past five years. The last question was extremely hard and i only had 10minutes left to do the whole thing, i ended up missing it out because i just didnt have enough time and it was so damn hard. In general the paper was a lot harder than paper 1
