  1. Now why would anyone do that to themselves?
  2. The key is to work consistently, not necessarily hard. If you put up a plan to maybe work 3 hours a day after school (and I mean a full 3 hours without any procrastination) and then maybe 6 hours on the weekends, you will have plenty of time to relax, sleep and a little time for social activities (on the weekends). Most probably, you will end up with 45/45 on your diploma. Unfortunately, it is impossible to avoid procrastination, but the goal should always be to procrastinate as little as possible. Also if you sometimes feel like you have a lot of work to do, then do it straight away, but don'
  3. In my last two weeks before the exam I reckon I studied for about 6 hours every day, but I studied a lot more for Physics than any other subject though... Now I only have Chemistry left... Ah feels good man!
  4. This guy has listed 99 resources to help for the IB economics programme: http://www.timwoods.org/2012/02/26/the-99-best-economics-resources/ Check it out... His tips on how to structure economics essays helped me out a great deal Best of luck!
  5. Hmmm... The last calculation he did uses the same method as mine actually, I just forgot to make KCl 20 % of the whole solution. Hence the 0.8 number for H20 as there should be 80 % of water in solution. Also, when the task ask for 20 % (not stating wheather it should be mole percentage or mass percentage) im pretty sure we should calculate in mole percentage. I might be wrong though...
  6. 1) I looked up the answer for you Vapour pressure is actually not the pressure exerted by vapour on its liquid molecules. Vapour pressure is actually the upward pressure of the vapour against the atmosphere in an open system (I didn't know this either ). So in order for the liquid to boil, the pressure against the atmosphere must be equal to the pressure that the atmosphere exerts on the system (i.e external pressure). Interesting question as I didn't think about this before. 2) Well I would have gone about it in this way: - Find the amount of KCL in moles: g/M=n => 45/74= 0.61 moles -
  7. Try to think constructively. Don't peg yourself down by stressing too much and find ways to think of the exams as just another mock. For me it helps to count the the topics I have under control in every subject while still keeping the stuff I don't know so well in the back of my mind. Also, do a lot of past papers! In every subject, simulate the situation of a real exam as it will help you cover everything you don't know so well while calming your nerves before the exam. One more thing! Think of every subject as "easy"... and that if you do the right things this last weeks you will achieve you

  9. Hey, I was just wondering after doing a few past papers, how strictly will the examiners follow the mark scheme when marking a paper? For instance paper 2 in Chemistry? I have done some of the Chemistry paper 2's, but when I mark myself, the mark scheme often has "marking points" which are given in different words from my answers, even though they have the same meaning. Also when doing calculations I notice that there are "marking points" that I sometimes do not write down even though I obtain the correct final answer. For the record, this happens to me when doing Physics past papers as well
  10. Yes! Complexes are formed when a metal reacts with ligands as Melissi is pointing out. However, not any metal will form complexes. Only the ones with high charge density (high oxidation states). For example, Na and Mg will not form complexes as their charge as ions (1+ and 2+ respectively) is not enough to attract the lone pair of the ligand. Aluminium on the other hand which has a charge of 3+ when it is an ion will attract the ligands. The most notable metals which forms complexes are the d-block elements in the periodic table as these have multiple and high oxidation numbers.
  11. Hey, I was just wondering how important the Internal assessments in some subjects were. I know they usually are supposed to account for about 20 % of your final grade, but lets say I deliver my IA's in chemistry and I get the lowest score possible, but I get a 7 on the exams. What will my final grade in chemistry be at the end of IB? Anyone who knows?
  12. I would have voted for Romney if I had the chance... It is not because I am particularly fond of Romney, but rather because I think the US should have changed their president. Obama got his four years, what did he do? Not much... What will he do the next four years? Again, probably very little... All Obama wants is to sit on his lazy ass in the white house and enjoy a life of luxury and fame. Romney was not a good canidate, but at least he would have tried to change the state of the US for the better. But of course, we will see how things onfold the next four years. My bet is that little is go
  13. Well, I would not say that it is fair that these people should recieve such salaries. However as someone mentioned earlier, there are few people who (in the end) are able to do these things (playing football, acting on TV etc..). The reason behind this I think is the fact that you cannot be taught these skills. It must be in your blood... While something like teaching is relatively easy to learn for anyone.
  14. Some people call me a monkey, others just call me black. Not because we Norwegians have heard you Swedes pee in your gardens. Have to go though, nice hotting and notting you all.
