  1. Doing my EE in economics. Could I do competiton between Asian food importers? OR i could do competition of Indian restaurants.
  2. Hi guys. I have already looked through lots of ee on econs and I found out that most students did their ee on market structure, e.g. to what extent is ... operating in a perfect competition? If I were to do my ee on market structure, will it seem to be lacking originality which IB examiners are looking for?
  3. Hi guys! (Just to give you some background about me : I am very interested in economics but my school does not offer it in group 6. So I sacrificed it in order to take history at group 3 which is a recommended subject for a law degree.) I do not have in-depth knowledge in econs but I studied econs in IGCSE(which is why I developed an interest in econs). I would like to do an ee on econs but I was intimidated by this :"the more background a student has in the subject, the better the chance he or she has of writing a good extended essay. Choosing to write the extended essay in a subject that is not being studied as part of the Diploma Programme often leads to lower marks" quoted from Extended essay guide. Any advice or similar experience on this matter ? Thank you very very much .
  4. Hi, its my first time writing here, so i don't really know how this works. Its my first year of IB and in two weeks i have my mid terms. I really want to prepare for my exams and i tried to google some Paper 3 economics practice questions, however, i couldn't find any. I already did all the questions that cover the material we did in class until now (demand and supply, equilibrium, elasticity), but there were only three questions and i feel its not enough. I really struggle with paper 3, i feel like paper 1 its easier because you can explain your ideas more clearly. So my question for you is, where could i find some more practice? If you have some practice worksheets, please help me
  5. Hello, so my supervisor recommended this research question to me: To what extent can microfinancing in the Philippines help women and families escape the poverty trap? I personally think this is way to broad. Help?
  6. How would I go about structuring an EE in market competition? I have been struggling to come up with a topic, but have several ideas. If you think one is good or have another Idea i beg you to post it, and how I should go about to get my data. IDEAS I could do how the development of a region in my area has increased demand of educational services, leading to production of a school, however causing student numbers of another to drop drastically, due to lower fees, and easier to get to (its close to the new suburb) My local shops have 1 smoothie shop and i could do to what extent is this a monopoly OR i could do to what extent do food stalls in the Eatery OR clothes shops display characteristics of a market in perfect competition. We recently had a large shopping brand enter my city. I could do how this effects demand at the other stalls, and what potential does this shop have to become a monopoly and say how it effects other substitutes from entering the market. Thank you guys sooo much for posting stuff. You are the best!!!
  7. I am wondering if this would be a good subject combo: HL Economics HL Biology HL English (not sure yet if I want lang & lit or lit) SL Math SL Finnish SL Chemistry Unfortunately I have no idea where I want to study after the IB, or what I want to study. I am wondering if these seem like subject choices that wouldn't close too many doors for me. The thing that troubles me the most is if it is "useless" to take HL bio without taking HL chemistry with it. I don't enjoy chemistry that much, but then again I've always had horrible teachers which has drawn me away from the subject itself. Though in the IB I would have a new teacher. I really don't know if I should take chemistry at all or if it is important. Thank you for any replies in advance
  8. So First I've wasted 7months of my grade11 doing group3 in history and now I've decided that I really can't do it. So I'm interested in changing it to Econ HL which they don't really have proper teacher yet, so I might need to do full on self study through the course alone. I actually have 3 choice right now 1. My school doesn't have proper class for Econ because they will introduce it next year but they are working on. So now my Econ soon to be teacher is my B&M teacher, he said if I want to do it I have to do self study and he can help sometimes, because he doesn't have time to do a class with only me in it, but I have to learn the curriculum all alone. 2. I have to do art for group 6 and switch BM for group 3 3. I'm have to stuck with history....which I'm not passionate about So does doing Econ HL self study possible or not? Ps. I never learn Econ before (at all) I know it's a burden, but history is too much! G1: ThaiA SL G2: Eng B HL G3: History HL (right now, hoping for Econ HL) G4: Biology SL G5: Math studies G6: B&M HL
  9. So my teacher knows his material, but as a teacher seems to lack the ability to explain. Does anyone have any resources to be help with the microeconomics chapters? Thanks!
  10. Where can i get an ib economics HL study guide
  11. I'm in Year 11 MYP right now and we have to make our subject selections for DP very soon. In order to get into the degree I want to do I'll need at least a 43/45, which I know is crazy hgih - but hey you gotta have dreams. I need advice on what subjects are the easiest to score 7s in, because I could swap around some stuff with sciences and humanities. See the list below: HL - Language A: Eng lang lit, Economics, Geography SL - Maths, Mandarin Ab initio, Biology ? I'm a diligent student, so would work hard, but I also want to have a life :')
  12. Are repair services considered to be merit goods
  13. Hi! So I'm coming up to the end of year 10, and have gotten textbooks for IB. I would really like to study ahead in the holidays, especially for economics, a subject I have had no experience with. As I have had no experience, I have no idea how to start studying. The textbook I have is Economics for the IB Diploma, published by Cambridge. If anyone has any recommendations, tips or any experience at all related to this, please let me know!! Thank you
  14. I'd appreciate some advice I'm mainly aiming for medicine, but there's a small chance I'd go for law I guess. I like geography more and am better at it, but I hear that it might be a soft subject and its percentages for 7 are not as high as econ. I'm absolutely horrible at graphs and I find the content of economics dull at times, but it's more well-respected by unis ( is that true?) and has one of the highest percentages for 7. I'm already gonna take Chem and Bio HL, so I really need a subject to balance my workload out lol 1. Which subject is easier to get a 7 in/ easier in general? 2. Which subject would be able to balance out my workload? 3. Which subject is more auspicious and more highly regarded by universities? 4. Which subject is better for medicine and which one is better for law? 5. Which subject will good essay writing skills compliment more? 6. Does Economics have a lot of complicated graphs? Which subject would you recommend overall? Thanks :))))
  15. 1. How would you rank geography, economics and history in terms of difficulty and workload (especially with chem hl and bio hl)? (1-easiest, 3-most difficult) 2. How would you rank these subjects in terms of being more highly regarded by universities? (1-most highly regarded, 3-least highly regarded) 3. Which subject is harder, History HL or English HL? If I do choose History, I'll need to push either to HL, and I'm quite worried about the workload of all HLs combined together. Thanks
  16. Hey guys I'm in year 10 right now and aiming for mainly medicine or possibly law school. I'll be taking Chemistry HL and Biology HL/SL; I hear that Chemistry HL is one of the hardest ib subjects and Biology requires a lot of memorizing. So considering the fact that people say History is one of the hardest subjects to get a 7 and takes a lot in general, would this combination be manageable for a good grade? I find History interesting, essay writing is one of my strengths and it helps law admission for a bit I guess? On the other hand, Economics is a much easier subject to secure a 7 in from what I hear, and is less demanding as I already have chem and bio. I'll probably have an easier time doing chem bio econ, and MIGHT manage to get better grades. I like the social part of Economics (history more so), but am really bad with graphs and diagrams (not good at maths either hehe), plus I have no intention in doing business or economics in uni. My school has started on econ yet so I don't know a lot about it but my subject choices are just round the corner :') So would doing History be worth the effort seeing how medical schools look more at your overall grade rather than what humanities subject you choose? And is it true that Economics will be able to boost my overall grade up compared to History? Do medical schools or law schools have a preference between those two subjects and which subject do you think I should choose for a better chance of admission into medical school? Or perhaps Geography would be a better choice for better grades? I find its content interesting too (not keen on map-reading tho) I'm open-minded about those three subjects and would really appreciate some suggestions. I'm asking a lot of questions sawry and thanks in advance :)))
  17. Hi all, I looked at previous years samples and saw that everyone of them had a hypothesis. Is it an IB requirement or is it optional? Kindly guide me Thanks in advance
  18. Hello all! Sometime soon I'll be getting my elective choice form for next year (10th grade). I was told by an upperclassman that I have to take an IB "elective" (AP: art, economics, psychology, or second science) in 10th grade as a prereq for 11th, and now I have some questions. First off, for art do you have to be good at actual drawing/painting? I enjoy photography and film (no, film is not offered at my school) and those are technically forms of art. Also, if it is only drawing/painting/etc., are you graded on actual artistic ability (i.e. I can draw an elephant really well but my humans look like lumps). Art sounds super cool, but I am no Picasso (and honestly not that great a sketcher either). Next, how's the psych workload? The only thing I know is the teacher at my school is out for like 6 months and apparently might be next year so the students have to teach themselves, and honestly that doesn't sound appealing. I don't know that much about psych though so... I don't have much to say about economics, because it doesn't interest me (unless you had a good experience you'd like to share lol). Lastly, I've heard the science program at our school is not super strong (the highest score was a 6 in bio HL in 2015 I believe + we don't even have chem or physics HL) and many of the science kids this year are struggling. I was planning on just doing bio as my elective along with chem, but now I'm having second thoughts. How is the bio/chem combination? Thanks so much! p.s. If anyone wants to share any journalism and/or AP human geography experiences, that'd be cool (I get a non-IB elective too)!
  19. Hey IbSurvivalists, I am contemplating whether an EE in Ec would be good, as i am struggling to come up with a topic for chemsitry (which i was gonna do). Our drafts are due week nine this term (in Aus, so around end of nov) so i am running out of time to finish this dam essay!!! Any possible ideas would be much appreciated, or topics that would be unique and interesting to do. Cheers
  20. Hello everyone, I just have a quick question, I am doing a presentation in economics on indirect taxes. For that, I need to explain the necessary graphs and so on. My question is, how could I best describe producer surplus and still link it back to the indirect tax graph. Thanks for the help!
  21. Hi guys, Does IB accept research title (e.g. Impact of Brexit on Business Profit: Evidence in the XXX town) instead of research question (e.g. To what extent has Brexit affected the profits of the small business in XXX town). Thanks.
  22. Hey! I am about to start my international trade IA. I am planning to do it on a tariff article. However, I found that for a tariff topic, there does not seem to be much of any other diagrams to include other than the basic tariff diagram. If I am only going to use one diagram in my IA, will I loose marks? Thanks!
  23. So I want to do my ee on economics and I haven't created rq yet. I wanted to do the EE on microeconomics and more specifically on a soft drinks company (as I have plenty of access to the primary data) the only problem is I don't know what my reserach question should be and how it will connect to the company ? HELP!!
  24. Im a year 11 student and I would like to know whether my combination is good or whether I should expect any obscure workload and what to watch out for. I take the following subjects- HL Computer Science HL Economics HL Business Management SL English Literature SL French B SL Math (not studies) SL Physics Is this a good combination for any field? If so can you please mention because I am not sure of what to do in the future. Thank you!! >o<
  25. I'm currently looking for an article for my international economics commentary and I had a few questions. My teacher isn't letting me use an article from the internet because apparently the IB has a rule saying that only one out of three articles can be from an internet source, while the other 2 have to be from a print source. Is this rule true? I couldn't find anything specific pertaining to sources of articles in the economics guide, so I just want to make sure its ok to use an online article. Thanks guys!
