  1. Have you already submitted your UCAS app then?
  2. After having been helping others on IBsurvival, of course I want to see other people do the same thing to me. If you don't want to, then please don't mind commenting on threads similar to this one. / Adam
  3. It depends. Some universities, such as Nottingham (Russell Group), really do understand the IB and this can be seen in their offers. An offer of 30-34 IB pts compared to AAB/ABB at A-level seems a fair conversion (for once!). I do believe that universities are gradually increasing their understanding of the IB. I know a few cases where, despite the required grades not being attained, the students have been able to use the fact that they do the IB to their advantage and be accepted.
  4. It depends what you want to do post-IB. Maths studies is designed for students who won't require Maths for their chosen course, e.g. languages, the arts (music, drama, ...), the humanities, etc.
  5. GDP as a poor representation of a nation's wealth is something I've studied at SL Economics. It even pops up as a question in exams quite often, therefore it's not a great idea to base your EE on this. You're only in IB1. Get settled a bit. Start looking at your EE around January so that you have more of an understanding of what a feasible EE topic is. If you feel that I've misunderstood your EE topic then do say.
  6. Once again, check this in the EE guide to be safe but I'm fairly certain that calculations do NOT count in the word limit
  7. I'm not sure where it lies. I thought maybe 2,500. I might be wrong. Ask your supervisor, or keep it between 3,500 - 4,000 to be safe. The only point I was making about being able to write the same thing in 2,500 words was that don't prolong a point to gain extra words. Scientists love you to be concise!
  8. You can find most of the info by downloading the EE guide in the files section. I presume it's free to download for any members. 1,500 words from Intro + Method is not a worry because the Results section may not use up many words, esp. if you're presenting your data in tables and graphs. These and any calculations are not counted in the word count. Conclusion should be fairly lengthy, maybe around 1,000 - 1,500 words. It's your choice how you decide to split it up. You know what you need to say. There's no need writing 4,000 words for the sake of it if the same thing can be written in 2,500. G
  9. What would you be comparing?
  10. U sure u don't want HL maths for econ, esp. if ur looking to study it at uni level? I guess it depends which part of econ you specialise in, though
  11. I have all my books in physical form and one or two on a Kindle. Those of which I reread on the Kindle were slower progress. The ability to look up every single word in the integrated dictionary, where otherwise one might have just read around the text to understand its meaning, is an extremely time consuming tool -- one that certainly side tracks you as you venture into each new dictionary entry, giving you snippets of history about those specific words, a whole new activity from the one you should be tackling (the reading). Making notes and highlighting is somewhat dull too. If one were to d
