  1. If reconstructing sentences won't suffice, I recommend removing a chunk. That's if you're over, say, 400 words lol. Don't be too sentimental about your work, I know you've put in effort and work into certain paragraphs, but take a good look at it and really consider it from a logical perspective. Sometimes when i write essays, I find that I've included certain parts purely because they sounded good to me, but they were not necessarily crucial for the essay. is it really imperative to my essay? Will my point be as effective without it? Does it really answer the essay question? If worse com
  2. Harry Potter without a doubt. It has a much more sophisticated plot and the world created in the Harry Potter books is truly amazing. So hands down, Harry Potter lol. And i admit, i did love Twilight in my younger teen years but Twilight was a phase, Harry Potter is a life-time thing. With Harry Potter, no matter how many obsessions you have with other books, you will always go back to Harry Potter.
  3. Case studies are probably second important to the key terms. However, they are of fundamental importance. As long as you know the case study and understand it, you can pretty much write your essays from them. However, never base your essays OFF case studies, unless explicitly stated to do so. What i found great about case studies is that you can integrate what they are about in your essay as your point and use the actual study as evidence. What i did was the case studies mainly provided me with my points of arguments so i didn't have to memorize anything but case studies. Also, when including
  4. Aww that sucks... I actually dunno what I got for mine, but my teacher used to be an senior IB moderator, so I guess his prediction would have been accurate.. (who knows) I guess you could ask for a remark! Maybe they'll reconsider it for you, since it's an external I sent mine for remarking anyway.. Although I'm not expecting much at all, I guess we should give it a go... So how did it go? Hopefully you got the mark you wanted! When is the last day you can ask for a remark?
  5. The best attribute one could have is determination. To just go for something you want. Less talk and more action. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
  6. That I'm actually quite a sensitive person lol. I'm not as indifferent as others make me look. What do you hate the most?
  7. While studying psychology i found studies to be the most important. I got a 7 for Psychology SL and in all honesty, psychology was the subject i least studied for. Psychology is mostly about understanding the content. I found that i could pretty much write a whole essay if i just knew case studies. The rest of the essay comes with the flow. We were taught that case studies are vital as they inform the examiner that you have evidence and you aren't just making things up. I found case studies to be a way of proving your point. Besides, if you have the name and date of a case study, it makes your
  8. I really loved Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen to the extent that i want to read the rest of her books too haha. Greek mythology was also amazing. I loved Medea and Antigone.
  9. Hmmm, it probably wouldnt be worth it honestly. What exactly did you get low marks on, the internals or exams? The component grades were terrible lol. I realized why i got a 5 in math. The examiner put my math IA mark down by 7 points! How unfair is that lol. I mean they usually put it down by one or two marks but not SEVEN! Ahh lol, sucks. There goes the idea of repeating the math exams lol.
  10. You know you're in IB when you procrastinate by printing practice exams to make you feel like you're doing something productive.
  11. Haha I can't compare. Iraq Yemen Australia (Adelaide, Melbourne) Malaysia (Kuala Lampur, Penang) Dubai
  12. Well you still have time since your final exams are in may 2014 it's a good thing experiencing the stress now so you actually have time to do something about it before 2014. I suggest thinking more productively, especially when stressed. Like if you're stressed about not getting something done on time, then work even more. Tell yourself that you dont have time to waste and if you're so worried about not getting something done on time then how about just doing the actual work rather than freaking out. That's what i used to say when stressed. There's no point to stress when it just hinders your
  13. Haha yeah but getting a 41 would have brought me a little closer to my medicine dream but ahh well. Goodbye to an easy entry into medicine lol. Although i guess my score is good considering all the times i got sick and all the dramas going on lol. But is that really a legit excuse? As for your 5 i guess it would be worth to get a remark if you find out you missed out on that 6 by a point or two. How many 7s did you get for hl besides music? And congrats pear.babe on the perfect mark! =D lolz, I got 5,6,7 for my HLs T______T I suggest emailing the university you'd like to go to. Or let's just
