Freshman Year of SL and Mental Health
Mentallythrown posted a topic in General IB DiscussionHey, I just want to be sure that I'm not in over my head when I transferred from a public school to a charter, that offers IB. I usually have good motivational tendencies and coping with depression off my female monthly event, but I realized that I had not taken into account that my depression is exacerbated greatly during that period of time. I think that my emotional stress every month grants me a disadvantage that will not prove fruitful if I stay in the program. I do well in all of my SL courses except Biology because the teacher rushes everything, usually not telling us a
Benefits for IB Certificate Students????
DepressIONIC posted a topic in General DiscussionI am a certificate student and currently taking IB Chemistry HL, Biology SL, English SL and Math SL. I feel like l'm taking all the core subjects in IB but I won't get a diploma since I am a certificate student. I'm planning to study medical science but would certificates for these courses also help getting into competitive universities? I mean I don't regret taking certificate courses but some other full ib kids tell me that my choices are stupid :(

Rohini Singh posted a topic in Extended EssayHello everyone, So i am doing extended essay in psychology and my research question is: to what extent does childhood physical abuse lead to later violent or criminal behaviour?

I am suicidal
Kino ker Snulley posted a topic in General DiscussionI am suicidal. I am an IB student from Vietnam, and this is my second year in the program. My classmates and I will be taking the exams very soon in May of 2013. Ever since I joined the IB, I felt a certain state of dull nerves, one might say, that have continued for nearly a year and a half now. I joined the IB never fully realizing the academic and social pressures that it entails, and the amount of stress, pressure, and expectations was too much for me to handle. I broke down. I constantly have feelings of guilt, helplessness, and sadness, and thoughts of suicide have crossed my mind. I sel
Psychology EE - Depression SOMEONE HELP
Bryan Hu posted a topic in Extended EssayHey People! I'm currently doing a psychology EE on depression and prevention in relation to cognitive behavioral therapy. I'm having trouble with determining a "right" topic. My supervisor says to find a narrow topic that allows you to go into depth, but not too broad where there is too much to cover. I initially wanted to compare two types of therapy in preventing depression, but he told me to go even narrow. So now I'm stuck with cognitive behavioral therapy. My current topic that I'm thinking of is: A comparison of cognitive behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral family thera
Psychology EE - gender difference in depression
Aida KZ posted a topic in Extended EssayI am currently working on my extended essay and my research question is: To what extents can the factors, that make women more vulnerable to depression, be due to biological factors or social factors? One of my problems is that it's a bit hard to find sources, especially psychological journals since most of them must be purchased, otherwise only the abstract is shown. Does anyone have a good advice for finding helpful sources? Thanks, Aida
I need helpHi, I am a Gr.11 IB Student in in Canada. I have never been really good at math, I barely got an 83% in Gr.10 HL math. For all my past tests, I have received nothing over a level 4. I work very hard and I don't miss any homework, I do all the adequate studying, but I still receive a 4. I recently got a 1 and 2 on my calculus and curve sketching tests, 2 tests which worked so hard for. I have a tutor, but it really does not help, because I can get help on the questions I want, but a tutor can't really teach me to be smart. I want to leave IB, but I really don't have any other friends in other

Will I Be Ok? :(
Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionHi I'm about to take the IB Diploma Program and I'm so nervous! I don't know everything about the program, and I don't know exactly how to nail it. I just know that I'm hardworking and eager to learn, but I don't think that is enough. The last school I went to has Vietnamese as the majority of the school and I didn't even fit it despite the fact that I'm a Vietnamese myself! The new school I'm going to are full of foreigners from all over the world. Not only so, I just recovered from severe depression, OCD and psychosis from two years of battling against them. What if the IB stress is
Should I Take the IB?
Guest posted a topic in General IB DiscussionHi everyone! So I'm considering two choices for my future education - IB in a new school and A Level in my current school. Could you help me with my decision? First of all, I'm a recovering depression sufferer. I'm still on medication but the dosage is being decreased by my psychiatrist. I'm craving for some changes. Second of all, I'm in the top five of the class and the teachers really like me. I love learning and am hard working. I do well in social science subjects, languages, sciences and musical extracurricular programs while math and sports are my weaknesses. Third of all, I'm g
