However i have a MEGA problem: I HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT TO STUDY ! If any of you have done IB entrance exams before, your experienced help would be really useful!

  2. Hi! I'd really love to use the Y/A novel solitaire by Alice Osseman for my extended essay, I think the themes of the book are complex enough to count however I'm not sure if I'm allowed to use it Any advice would be great
  3. Would the Bilingual IB Diploma be much of an advantage in Top University Admissions? I'm moving to a new school with IB as their curriculum so I'm rather unfamiliar with this. I'm half French so I know how to use French for daily conversations. I would be taking English Lang Lit and the other language being either Spanish or French. My teacher is yet to decide if I'm capable of French A. If I choose Spanish, I'd have to take it as Spanish Ab Initio. I want to study a new language as I'm somewhat familiar with French, thus I wanted to choose Spanish (Ab Initio), but the Bil
  4. Hi everyone, I am struggling with my research question so I would like to ask for your opinion and help. I have originally chosen two books Dr No and On Her Majesty's Secret Service both original Bond novels by Ian Fleming, from which I wanted to choose just one for my EE. First, I was determined to do OHMSS, then I switched to Dr No, but now I have no idea what to choose because I'm struggling with my research question. In case of Dr No, I would like to explore the depiction of women (namely the leading Bond girl) and try to prove that she is actually not that 'overly sexualized stereoty
  5. Hello guys, I feel kind of screwd cuz I'm writing my reflective statement in Swedish right now and have not the brightest idea about how to formulate or write it. We've already written two before but we cannot get any response from our teacher because 'IB says so' so I was wondering if you have any tips that I might use while writing a reflective statement
  6. Hello! I'm planning on doing my extended essay on English Literature but I don't have any books or question yet. I am interested in American literature in the 20th century and I'm hoping I can talk about something from then. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  7. A friend of mine recently notified our IBC that he is worried that his paper is too similar to that of a sibling who had taken IB years before. He used his siblings paper to get an idea for a topic. he is worried they will run it through the system and find too many similarities and say he plagiarized. If you get caught for plagiarism is there a certain percentage that it must be for you to have consequences? i.e <15% Also, does the IB notify the college you plan on attending that you were caught for plagiarism?
  8. Hi, I am struggling with getting all 3 marks with the reflective statement. My teacher keeps telling me that I should add more points, but I find it especially hard since theres a 300-400 words limit. Does anyone have advice on how to get all 3 marks while staying in the word limit?

  11. Hey guys, I have vacation going on, so i thought i would use this time to think of an EE topic in advance. So what I was planning to do is comparing Frankenstein - Mary shelley and The Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson.

I would really like it if anyone could give me their opinion or advice on this. Thank you in advance.

But I'm having trouble choosing which exact books to choose :(( Do y'all have any feminist fiction book recommendations? Any help would be really appreciated!! :))

  16. I have chosen English Lit and Language A as my EE subject. I have come up with some topic ideas, but I want to see what you people think of these topics and RQ's: The effect that an epistolary format has on character development in Jerusalem's Lot and Frankenstein. Jerusalem's lot is a short story written by Stephen King. How does Agatha Christie’s use of literary techniques (red herrings, plot twists etc.) in And Then There Were None and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd mislead the readers about the plot? How does the usage of an unreliable narrato
  17. Hello, there! This is my first post here ever. So, I'm going to hand in the subjects option form two days later. But I have trouble making choices on English. I want to know the differences between English A SL and English B HL apart from the difficulties and quantity of assignments. Do both English A HL and SL focus on literature itself, whereas B focuses on the application of the language and cultures? Thanks!
  18. Hey! I have decided to do my extended essay in English Lang & Lit, i have decided my topic and the novel i'm gonna analyse. I was thinking of the novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, and i wanted to explore the topic of obsession and the way obsession is portrayed by the characters in the novel or the way the author incorporated obsession in the novel and its accuracy, considering the time this book was written. what do you guys think about the topic and the choice of this novel ? All help is useful ! 🙂
  19. Hi all. I'm planning on doing an EE in English, category 1. What are your thoughts on my RQ- at the moment my biggest concern is that it might be too descriptive rather than analytical, in terms of language. How does delusion influence characters' motives and perceptions of reality in Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things? My supervisor actually advised me to do something along the lines of the question above. However, I originally planned on doing the question below, but she advised that there may not be enough to talk about. What are your thoughts? Is the question above acceptabl
  20. Hello all, I am a DP2 student from New Zealand undertaking English A Literature. In second half of last year, all DP1 English students uploaded their final Work in Translation (WIT) essay to the school and received a predicted grade. From what I heard, students are to upload the final copy of their WIT to the IBIS by themselves. I have heard anecdotes of students being able to edit their WIT after the due date set by the school (it's just that teachers will no longer provide feedback). However, our IB coordinator says that our teachers will check to make sure that we upload a copy that's iden
  21. Hi, I am in year 10 this year and I have recently got my grade back for my first english reflection which I had recieved a 'C' in and the teacher had to talk to me about it. My exam is on writing a reflection but in the voice of another character in the book that I studied which is 'The Professor and the Housekeeper. I did a practice paragraph but the comments I got was that it was more of a recount not a reflection, and I'm stressed out now because I want to do good in this exam to bring up my mark. If anyone has any good tips for my reflection or just mentally please add a comment.
  22. So, my EE's due tomorrow 11:59 p.m. I know it's pretty late but I have to do it. And I haven't done any of it yet. Luckily, I've got a semi-plan outline, which looks like a table of contents, but I just can't get started. Each time I think of starting, I fear that somewhere along I realize how crappy my essay is and might have to start from scratch. My essay's going to be a comparison essay between Siddhartha and lord of the Flies. I'm going to be exploring the theme 'ambition' in the essay. Do you guys think this is a good idea? or is there any other theme that might be easier to explore? a

Have any of yall written an EE about speeches?? Maybe I could compare her to someone else, but I don't know who?

  24. For the Hl english Lit paper 2, we have to read 4 books and know them thoroughly and this can be quite difficult considering all the things we need to remember. So, I was thinking if everyone could lists the books they are doing the people with the same books could help each other out by exchanging quotes, analysis and other stuff regarding the books. We could really help each other out here and make studying for english a lot easier. My books: The road Oryx and Crake Jungle books Beloved
