  1. Wow, 80%? Dayum, i'm statistics and probability, and my 7 is at 76%. Anyone hear back from someone who remarked english A1?
  2. So if the boundary for 7 in English A1 SL is at 78 and i'm 76, i should go for it with NO fear of being marked down to a 5?
  3. It's not about being far from the higher boundary, it's being really close ( Less or equal to 3 points) but in a very very subjective subject (English or Any language A1)
  4. Does anyone have any stories about the worst remark scenarios they've heard of? Like people who have been remarked in a subject only to be marked down 5+% or lose an IB point?
  5. Summer Glau has been telling me that she knows people who remarked English A1 before and got higher grades, does anyone else know of any and what happened to their grades?
  6. Yeah, I wont be sad if it doesn rise. Just pissed if it turns to a 5.
  7. I see what you mean IBConquerer, but the thing about my score is, i have went into a college that i do not really plan to stay at and i plan to transfer hopefully after the first year while they can still look at my IB grades so it also kinda helps. My Dilema isnt the money or anything, just the chance of a 5. But everyone tells me that it's pretty unlikely and my coordinator told me that if i do lose 10 points, we have a right to fight with the IBO because of the lack of an accurate first time mark (even though i have a predicted 7 in English)
  8. Thanks for the answers guys, also i've been thinking about this, but the second i send for my remark, i can kiss my 20/20 in WL good bye right?
  9. so even though english grades are pretty fallible, flexible and volatile, i probably wont go down to be a 5? Also, do they remark the World Lit? Or is it something moderated so they dont touch it? Because it would be much better to simply remark P1 and P2
  10. It's more of a personal preference, I got a 42, and i'm planning on remarking physics HL (1 point away from 7) and i want to get one last point to try to be 44 (EE and ToK are hopelessly both low B's so naah) What are the chances of getting the last two points? (and money is not an issue, it's just if i stand a chance to get even lower than a 6) and also has anyone ever remarked English or heard of a person who remarked english and what happened to their grade?
  11. Hello, I have just gotten my grade breakdown, and my Paper 1 and Paper 2 were disappointing but my IA and WL are good. I ended up with a 6 which was a 76% and 7 starts from 78%. Here is my breakdown: IA: 24 P1: 18 P2: 14 WL: 20 (Yeah i was pretty happy about the world Lit! )
  12. Im doing my EE in physics, I'll be investigating the relationship between the Coefficient of restitution of different types of squash balls (the only difference between them being their rubber composition). I will heat them up in boiling water, transfer them to a clam stand which is set at a detirmined height, then i will let the temperature fall to the experimental temperature and open the clamp and use frame by frame video analysis to find the height. In the end, i will compare the effects of temeprature on CoR at different temperatures of the different ball types and reach a conclusion and
  13. Noticed theres another shadow fucntions thread but didnt want to hijack. Im completely stuck at point 4 of part B where it wants a provable general statement, that point is extremely broad, what exactly does should that general statement acheive? or what should it show?
  14. You have the same ambitions as i do, but the acceptance rates of these schools are crazy.
  15. Nice! Sounds much more complicated than mine to be honest. Which college do you plan on going to?
  16. so what was your expirement on mr.AHM?
  17. Whats was the topic that you expiremented on? P.S And about keeping the temperature constant, i wont have to because the temeperature change in the drop would be the same at all temperatures, so it will be more of a case of initial temperature than temperature at impact)
  18. Wow, the link you posted Mr. AHM sounds exactly like what i was gonna do (in the sense of variables and idea) although my expirementation and depth that which ill analyze each of the controlled variables and stuff. Thanks !! I still cant believe that you didnt do it in physics, are you planning on majoring in engineering? (if yes, a friend of mine told me that colleges like to see Physics EE's for engineers.
  19. Wow, you just gave me a huge amount of hope! I will heat the ball in water, then use a surface temeperature meter to measure the temeperature of the outside of the ball (my supervisor also likes it but is afraid that anaylsing polymer and rubber reactions to temperature is abit chemistry)
  20. I'll be changing the ball temperature and checking how it affects the rebound height (Coefficient of restitution), dependent is CoR and independent is temperature, but then ill repeat that expirement with different types of squash balls (they have different rubber compositions allowing them to bounce differently) and compare these relations (for example the blue dot ball had the largest increase in rebound height per degrees celcius than the others)
  21. How about temperature and different types of balls? (check the relation between Coefficient of Restitution and Temperature for the different types of squash ball?)
  22. Thanks for the replies! Keeping the temperature contsant could be talked about in the evaluation although i know that it is extremely hard to even aceive a good temperature. And how about making it, how does changing the ball temperature affect the coefficient of restitution on different surfaces?(loosely phrased) Application could be related to ingame strategy and playing on certain walls more as the ball heats up.
  23. Im doing my EE in physics and ill be investigating the effect of temperature on the bounce height of a squash ball on different surfaces. (ill be comparing the change of bounce height due to temeoperature on different surfaces of a squash court to identify which would suffer the biggest change in bounce) What does everyone think?
  24. I had an Idea of painting symbols on the side of the ball then shoot a video of the trajectory at 60 fps to get the amount of rotations a second, does that seem doable?
  25. So did you decide to do the first one? (My topic is the same thing)
