  3. Hi! This forum is to talk about the summer between DP1 and DP2! For example what to do/study, first drafts on IAs, CAS and EE talk! Tips and tricks and reassuring comments are very welcome!
  4. Hi! Yesterday I found out that my supervisor had gone on vacation, leaving me without any guidance until the middle of August. I wasn't done with my research question (I have myself to blame really) and now can't afford loosing two more weeks withour any reasarch on the specific question. I've come up with 3 research questions concerning the Rwandan genocide (history), I would be very grateful if you could help me. Can I rephrase anything to make it better? Which one do you consider the best option for an EE? Is any of these questions even doable? 1.To what extent was the Rwandan
  5. Hello! I'm currently in IB2 in Sweden and am starting to plan for the summer. I think I want to go to an IB summer camp, but I don't know if it's good or worth it. Money is not a problem. Have you gone to an IB summer camp before? Where? Was it helpful and fun? Did you get time/help with your extended essay? Do you recommend it? Overall, how was the experience? Thank you so much!!
  6. Hey hey hey I'm planning to get a head start on HL Math by working my way through a textbook over my summer break. I currently have PDFs of the Pearson textbook, Cambridge textbook, and H&H textbook. Which one is the best for a clear, thorough introduction to math for a person who is quite nervous about HL math and can a) explain the material clearly (I don't care if its a long explanation- it needs to be good), b) provide lots of practice questions and c) have challenging questions that can test my abilities, similar to ones on the exam? Or is there another textbook that is bet
  7. I know the transition from Grade 10 to IB1 is going to be a tough one so I want to start preparing for it now. How do you guys think I should go about doing that? I can only think of some ways right now: -Start reading the books on the English HL reading list (does anybody know what these books might be?) -Get the IB Chem and Math course companion and go through it to see what's coming up -brainstorm what activities I could do for CAS (If it helps, I'm taking HL English, Chem, Psych, Bio and SL Math and French. ) I really want to be productive this summer so I c
  8. IB is nearing in really quickly. This week will be my last exam week for IGCSE .. I was wondering what sort of preparation can I make over the summer to better assist me into having a head-start, especially since I am going for 4 HLs. If you have any specific tips for my subjects, or any general advice, it would definitely help a ton! Btw, my subject combinations is this.. Biology - HL Chemistry - HL English A LAL - HL French B - HL Math - SL History - SL
  9. How are you all doing? I cannot believe that we are reaching the end of the IB program... Us having the exams now anyway. So what are your plans for when the exams are over?!? Celebrate and party? Sleep for days? Read a book to make the transition to normal life smoother?
  10. I have a week till I start school, and I feel like I've been doing homework all summer, but I still have so much left. I keep sitting down to work on it, but I can never get much done. Any one else have a similar problem, or any suggestions on how to remedy it?
  11. I'm going on a trip to Anaheim in about a month from now. Thing is, my parents will be at a conference, and my little brother (he's 9 years old) and I will be left alone in the hotel for 4 days. We'll be staying near the Convention Centre, so I'm planning to drop by the Packing District and spend time around that area, as well as the Angel Stadium. That said, I'm a bit scared of walking to and from the hotel with my brother. So how safe is it for a teenager and a kid to walk in there? Also if you can recommend any other places to visit that'd be great. Thanks in advance
  12. Hello everyone, I made a self-study summer plan for myself for getting ahead in schoolwork and I wanted to know if there were other people doing it and how they were. My plan is to: -Learn integration for Math SL. -Finish (or almost) the rubric for Chemistry HL in my own notes (combining them with my practice exam ones to have personalized notes for the entire rubric). -Make some notes for Physics HL and finish the option unit (astrophysics). -Finish my EE (Economics) to a point that I can just revise it with my advisor for small details. -Read the play that we are reading in September f
  13. Hi, y'all. I'm gonna be in my second year of IB and I want to spend some time over the summer to prepare for my English class. I hope to do really well in class so that my teacher will get me one more grade for my Predicted Grade (our school has given us a draft of PG grades to sort of motivate us) but I'm not sure how I should prepare to the fullest. So far I've done some research on the contextual background for the books/texts we'll be studying in the first semester. What else can I do to ensure I will be ready for group discussions as well as answering questions in class? Thanks!
  14. Just wanted to hear what you guys are doing, since my summer is pretty much filled with ib stuff I'm on IB1 now so I'll be doing my psychology EE during the holidays. I also have to finish my Written Assignment and do some summer reading for Finnish (probably for English as well). I also thought about starting my Biology IA this summer so I'd have less things to worry about next autumn. Of course I'm doing CAS: running, swimming and taking dance lessons
  15. Hello Dear All, I just wonder if there is a possibility to do some extra economics course during summer holidays. I am now in 2IB and besides writting my EE during holidays, I would like to do some extra course from economics somewhere in UK on the university or somewhere else in Europe. Is it possible? Has anyone done something like that before? If yes, could you please share with us your opinions, obligatory fees and the place where you took the course?
  16. While many people are discussing school work in the summer break (at least it's still summer break for me), not many people have mentioned their choice of literature this summer. Which books have you guys read this summer, while trying to relax? So far I've finished North and South for my EE in English, as well as having read these books for leisure: - Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami - Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence - A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin - Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll - The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum ... And right now I
  17. My final grade from this year was a 5. But, I need a 7 and soon. I'm starting a study group online on G+ over the Summer. Possibly an hour a week. I already have a few people signed up from my school but still, the more the merrier. Productively using the last Summer before school ends could make your year. Tell me if you're interested. With the internet, borders really aren't barriers. Cheers!
  18. Hi guys! I was wondering if anyone has been to a IB summer course before. I have won scholarship to a summer course abroad but I still have to pay for the flight, which cost a lot!! It is only 5-days long and I am not sure if it would worth all that time and money. Please help me out, I must respond to the course administrator asap. Thanks! )
  19. Hey guys, so I need help looking for internships, summer camps or any programs (maybe at a university) to do over the summer? I want my summer to be productive for once. I looked into an internship program called Discovery Internship but it turns out its very expensive and I don't think it reasonably fair to pay that much to participate in an internship. What did you guys do last summer? Any recommendations? I know this is kind of broad, but I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks!
  20. I am a former IB student, and now an administrator at an art school in Florence, Italy. We have been working with the International School of Florence to put together a summer program focused on helping the students at the school here, but we also want to invite students from around the world (max 15). http://www.theflorenceartstudio.com/BLOG/ibvasummer The point of the program is to give students the opportunity to hone their technical skills (re: DRAW!) at a time when they are not stressed out with other school obligations or activities. After meeting repeatedly with the IB VA teacher here,
  21. Would it be possible for me to start getting CAS hours during the summer before I begin my first year of IB (the summer after graduating from the MYP)?
  22. Hey I only have a quick question, but I've been trying to google this for hours and it seems like I'm never going to find an answer there, soo I came to you guys for help. I read on one of the threads that all of the syllabi changed in 2013..? I got a bit panicky because I realised that I only have the 2009 ones at hand and I can't seem to find the new ones anywhere. I was just wondering if someone could confirm which syllabuses are being used for the May 2014 examinations (does it change from subject to subject or are all of the syllabuses from the same year?), and if the 2013 ones are bein
  23. Hello Over the summer I'd like to practice my essay writing skills so that when I start school in September I haven't completely lost the hang of it. Do any of you have any ideas of books I could read and essay questions I could try answering? I've been reading Jodi Picoult for fun. Maybe anything related to her? Thanks.
  24. Do you know of any online IB summer courses, free or paid, and if so are they effective or just a waste? thanks.

    Hey guys! Im new here on IBSurvival! I really want to write my EE on chemistry since it interests me! But the problem is, I don't even know where to start, finding out what to write about, what kind of lab I want to do etc. Please if anyone has suggestion, I would be grateful to consider them!
