  1. When I wore ballerinas on graduation and then almost stumbled and almost lost one of my shoes when it was my turn to walk on the stage and pick up my papers. What is your dream job? (anything in the entire world, even jobs that don't really exist)
  2. Bio is usually not worth a remark, as there are more straightforward "right or wrong questions". English, on the other hand, can be quite subjective and it is definitely worth a remark if you think that you deserve a better grade.
  3. I face a similar problem. I was predicted 41, but got 34. It is mainly because of my EE, which was predicted an A from my IB coordinator, but it ended up getting a D. I have no idea why the grade changed that much, because I was strictly following the grading criteria when writing it. I assume that the examiner strongly disliked Dracula or something like that, so I will definitely get it remarked. My TOK grade needs one mark to be a B, so I will try to get it remarked too. If you only need one or two marks to get a better grade, you should definitely try getting a remark. But it is better to
  4. Also, my IB coordinator was the one who predicted my A and the IBO told him before that his grading is too harsh and he really hardly ever gives out A's. It's the same with my TOK teacher. So this just seems absurd!
  5. Same happened to me!! I was predicted an A and I worked so much on it and was in school 3 weeks during the Summer break, but then the IB gave me a D. I do not understand this.. I was predicted 41 overall, but thanks to the unfair EE grade and the unfair TOK grade I ended up getting 34. I really want my stuff to get remarked, because I really, really need my A for uni, or at least a B
  6. Yes it does, around 100 dollars from what I've gathered from other posts. If you're grades do go up, I think you'll get the money back though. Pretty much as much as exams then. But I just need 1 mark for both TOK and EE and both TOK and EE were predicted to be an A, so it should be worth it I guess. If you didn't make your offer, then yeah - it'll probably be worth it. Did you have to pay for your exams? Yes, around 4000 Swedish kronor. Did you? Nope... I though it was standard, Swedish protocol for the school to pay for you, but apparently that doesn't happen everywhere! The e

  9. My grades were terrible as well... My IB coordinator predicted and A in EE and IB gave a D (just needed 1 mark to get a C). Same happened in TOK. Got an overall of 34, but need 38... My life has ended T_T The same thing happened with me! I was predicted A for TOK and B for EE...I got a D in TOK and C in EE I am considering getting my TOK remarked...is it worth the try people? I am going to get mine remarked.. Because I really need my A's

  11. The top universities dont actually appreciate retakes. I know that oxbridge dont even consider them, the rest just expect you to do well the first time, and it makes sense tbh. So I am planning to make it up by going on a volunteer trip to Peru (which I am doing anyways), so I hope that helps if I miss my mark by a microunit. . Yeah, I heard that :/ I want to study English Literature and Creative Writing at Warwick, but have no idea what they think about retakes. I was thinking of publishing a novel I have written during my IB years this year, so I hope that will back up my grades. Otherwis

  13. 38 is still an outstanding grade and you got a 7 in physics HL and good grades in all subjects except of English and TOK really, which are subjects you will not need if you study physics at uni. Do you know what grades you need?
  14. Today is the day... I am getting so scared right now... I wish you all the best of luck
