  1. Hahaha, true I guess.. but the files and notes section isn't very organized in my opinion. It's not too useful at the end of the day. Aslo, our website is for all students and programs, not only IB.
  2. We are a group of high school students working on a website for students who take the same course to share and organize their notes. For IB students, this would mean that you could have access to all other user's IB notes, organized by subject. We thought that might be helpful if you don't take very good notes, don't have a great teacher for some of your courses, and/or willing to upload some of your good notes. Your opinion matters! Please help us make the best possible website by filling out this short survey: http://tr.im/has9p Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey, I am a 16 year old (turning 17). I skipped 9th and 10th grade. I've just graduated and got 40/45 on the IB. I'm taking a gap year now and will be taking SATs (so far I have an 800 on Math 2) and applying throughout the gap year. As a result, I will be applying to US universities with my IB score in hand, as opposed to with a predicted score. I want to get in to universities such as Harvard or MIT. How do universities value actual IB scores in comparison with predicted scores? Also, how much, if at all, will the fact that I did the IB at a younger age contribute to my applications?
  4. hey guys, im going to be doing the nov 2012 math hl paper 2 as my semester exam, due to certain complications, this will be the only thing i will be graded on this semester and therefore has a great value. can someone please tell me where i can get my hands on this paper, if not, can you outline the sub topics (as specifically as possible) that were covered in the exam btw, im in 11 math hl so this is a craze!!
  5. hey man, appreciate the reply, i live in Jerusalem (Israel/Palestine) and go to the Anglican International School of Jerusalem.
  6. Not exactly, I have completed HL Math and have done 10th grade physics and chem, but thats all. the HL math did NOT count for my diploma, i will have to either repeat it in g12 or do CS instead.HAVE A LOOK AT MY LAST TWO POSTS. Thanks,
  7. i've been thinking about it and im not sure if i can complete the ib diploma during the coming 2 years, so i thought of maybe doing 11th grade twice and then 12th grade (starting this year right now - I'm in Grade 9 atm). Will universities such as MIT automatically reject me when they see that I've repeated a grade, even though I finish school a year earlier (3 months from 18 years old)? The reasons i think finishing the ib in the next 2 years would be hard is because of weekly TOK essays, extended essays and physics HL which will take a lot of my time.
  8. Wow, I didn't expect so much discussion on this, thanks a lot everyone. My school has suggested that i skip 2 grades now (go from 9th to 11th). I'm not sure whether to accept because it will mean a lot of pressure in the next two years, my English will also be a problem. The subjects I'll be taking are Computer Science HL (or Math HL again) English HL Economics SL Physics HL Chemistry SL Arabic/French/Hebrew SL The pros are that I took 10th grade chemistry and physics last year and got 7s in both, i've already done math HL/I want to major in cs in university and Economics is started from scr
  9. definitely pc, mac is just a big name and a stylish laptop, windows 7 dominates. There are so many things you can do on pc that you can't on mac.
  10. Definitely do Studies, it's so much easier, it's not worth the hard work if you're not going to do math hl. the worst thing you can do is take on a level your not confident in and mess up.
  11. You should definitely remark, it's worth the try. All you need is an extra 2%, you might just get them
  12. Thanks for all the answers! i want to make it clear that i don't intend to start university before completing school...im also consistent with 4.0s plus so far and i also took 10th grade bio, chem and physics along with the math. For now, i'll try sending to Cambridge and do you guys think that this achievement will have a big or little/no impact on whether im accepted when i also have SAT scores to show MIT? What SAT scores do you think i would need for MIT if i have this certificate? if it matters, i want to learn computer engineering.
  13. Hey, I'm new to this forum so I hope this is the right way to ask questions :/ I'm a 14 year old 8th grader, i've been taking math with 11th and 12th graders for a while now and i just finished the Hl math course, did the exams and got a 6. My question is: If I send a certificate with the grade on it and proof that I'm only 14 turning 15 to MIT, could i get a full scholarship (or any sort of scholarship) to go to MIT after i finish school (perhaps only as long as i get a diploma)? Thanks in advance,
