  1. Heyah! So lately I have been so stressed out and demotivated to do anything :\ I finish my mocks this week and they are going alright. I just want someone to tell me that I have enough time to prepare for the final exams... Do you think three months of studying will allow me to achieve above 40 points? I'm predicted 43 points but I know that our school haven't covered many parts of the syllabus for the majority of my subjects and now I have to self-teach myself lots of things. Will it be possible for me to study all my subjects in 3 months and ace the exams? The subjects I take are: Geography, Business, and English Langlit at HL and Maths Studies, Physics, and Arabic A at SL. Physics is probably my weakest subject cause the teacher I had last year skipped so many topics that when our class did the mock 2 weeks ago with the new teacher, the average for our class was 1.8 points. Can I teach myself the physics syllabus in those three months? I need some motivation!!
  2. Hi, For my math IA, I chose to model traffic flow (worst choice of my life .... kinda above my math level). My aim is something along the lines of "how does an influx of vehicles cause traffic congestion." The formulae that I am using are mean, poisson distribution, speed, and density (so far). I have good knowledge of the models too. Tbh I could rant on about traffic flow for 12 pages, but I don't know how to make my IA fluid. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
  3. Hi guys, my math IA is due in 2 days and I'm almost done but I have just realize that one of my formulas are faulty. I'm doing cryptography for my IA and with the formula I used, I got SOME of the answers correct (2 letters out of a 4 letter word :/) but the other 2 don't abide to the rules of the formula. I'm running out of time and I don't know what to do. Do you guys know if the moderators check every single working or do they just trust it? Because my method has been used before so they might not need to recheck my calculations? What do you guys think?
  4. Hi guys, Im currently living in Slovakia where we have a slightly different education system to the one in England, specifically we go to school later than kids in England and so finish school much older. I am 15 now and in MYP 3, next year we are moving to England and I have already been accepted to an IB school. Unfortunately they wont let me into the MYP and are sending me straight to the IB. I am going to take HL Math (I need it for what I want to study at uni). I am going to skip 2 years (MYP 4, MYP 5) and finally coming to my question: What should I do to prepare for HL Math? Are there any review guides which would fill in the missing knowledge? Any that you could recommend?
  5. Hi guys! Despite it being one of my easier subjects, I tend to struggle to find motivation to actually get down to studying for ESS. I was wondering if you guys had any good ESS specific study tips that helps you understand the material in an efficient way as I seem to always get lost in all the various definitions and whatnot. Thanks!
  6. Hi guys, I currently have a 6 from German B SL. My Paper 2's are usually moving around 20 to 22 points out of 25, so basically a 6, however my huge weakness is the Paper 1, which I sometimes even get a 4 on. I have a question. I cannot seem to understand how I can prepare or improve my skills in the Paper 1's, do you guys have any special techniques or any tips? My MYP German teacher was completely useless and I feel I am catching up everything in these two years. I am graduating soon, so any feedback would be appreacited. By the way, I have a lot of vocabulary papers, concerning Grammar as well. Thanks for your help, any feedback or help appreciated.
  7. Ok so I'm stuck in a really annoying situation in my arts class. Basically over the course of the past year I've been producing pieces (mainly photographs) that include nude models and have encountered a few problems with my school when I expressed that I wanted to include these photographs in my final exhibition. Basically I was told to alter the pieces or I wouldn't be able to submit them. Whilst I understand they probably want to appease everyone (teachers, parents who may see the exhibit etc.) and avoid any sort of social faux pas, frankly, I found the experience to be patronizing both towards myself and the potential audience. Even more so because the images aren't sexual (no genitals are even visible) and they aren't even really "nude" because they are covered in body paint. Further, no other students found any issue with the images. Also the model is of legal age, gave permission to exhibit and all that jazz. Does anyone know if there are any official IBO rules on nudity in exhibition pieces? In general I really want to hear your opinion on the issue, for example do you think it was a different media the response would be different?
  8. My IOP is next week and I don't know what to do. I wanted to do drawings showing the dynamic development of Marguerite, but I don't know how to present it. Like how do I open the presentation? and how do I close it? Please help.
  9. Ok so like if I get a 7 on the SL math exam and i only get a 1 on the exploration/ia, what would my final mark be approximately???
  10. Should key events in the historical development of areas of knowledge always be judged by the standards of their time? Any real life situation ideas for this question???
  11. Hey, I was just wondering that if I revise my friends notes which she used for her 2016 ess exams, will there be a problem for my 2017 exams? as in, is there a significant difference between the two or do they both cover the same topics and same things needed to get either level 6 or 7.. Thank you
  12. Hey guys, I happen to take French B at Higher Level, and was wondering if you guys have any tips which helped you speed through learning a B language and really ace it (like getting a 7)? Any help would be greatly valuable!
  13. I chose to demistify the number e for my math IA. What I have so far is how we came up with e throught solving continuous compound and calculus. I'm also planning on putting in some explanations why e exists in some important formulas. I was wondering if there is anything else I should add? So far I have only explained how we created e, I haven't done much on going calculations of my own. Regarding this topic, is there anything I can calculate? What other reflection, analysis should I do on this project? Thank you.
  14. Hi, I am doing my ITGS IA and choose to do a website to adress my client's problem. I was wondering if it is possible to create your website using WIX website creator, if yes will it bring down my marks??
  15. Hey, my teacher has told us that we need to pick an IA Topic and I am really struggling with this and would like some help to do this. Thank you, anything will help to do this IA.
  16. Hi! I'm a Chemistry student currently undergoing corrections for my IA draft. I just really really REALLY need help on what the points to IB grades are. For example, how many points do I need to score from the overall rubric in order to barely reach a 7? How about 6? and so on and so forth. Thanks!
  17. I am clueless as to what my EE question is, I have a general idea of it but there's a gray area. It's either gonna be a literature or English paper. I want to discuss Hamilton the musical, hip-hop, rhyme, and how they can all mix together. I need help my TOK teacher us even clueless as to what it can be, any suggestions would be big help.
  18. So, as I further dive into post-graduate papers I simply do not contain the brain capacity (yet?) to comprehend, I'm gaining an increasingly certain belief that doing an HL exploration on chaos theory/it's applications is not my cup of tea. (again, yet(?)) Our option topic is calculus, and what I've come to understand (with questionable accuracy) is that the chaos theory falls rather into the "discrete maths territory", whatever that is. I've already suggested the topic to my teacher and he appeared to have no hesitations on asking for the rationale and the mathematical development, due yesterday. (yay snow break?) (I mean I could've asked him about these if it weren't for the snow so ultimately it wasn't that great) (and I'm aware my delays are not optimal but have no doubt, my days have been terrorized by this theory ever since I've decided on the topic, to no clear end) Overall, I've no ways (or honestly, the intention) to change my topic now, and I need to get it, at last. I ask, from those graduates that somehow enjoy frequenting the haunting memories of IB, or Further geniuses (or those that qualify for both?), to walk this crippled victim of her own audacity, through the chaos theory. Preferably by calculus-applicable examples, and minding that I indeed am crippled intellectually by the inexplicably high level papers I've made myself read. (sorry for my insensitivity towards the mentally challenged, account it on my own challenge that is unlike theirs, of my own doing, yet proves to be a great obstacle nonetheless) tl;dr I'm an idiot that chose chaos theory as her exploration topic. I don't get it. Need someone able to walk me through it. Please.
  19. Hey Can someone who has global politics be good enough to help me with something I have to do for my class? Thank you in advance
  20. So I'm getting into the nitty gritty bit of IB - all the IAs are due in the next two weeks or so - and I haven't done much yet. I just started and completed my TOK Essay, Spanish HL IA, and History HL IA in the last two days so now I'm starting on the EE and the English IA. I haven't firmly decided on a topic yet but I was thinking something along the lines of "to what extent did Islamic influences on Spain lead to the superiority of the Spanish Empire in the 16th century?" Is this a good topic to go with? Or will it be too difficult to find primary sources? Or do we even need primary sources for the history EE? Also, what is the format for the History EE? Is it like the IA? Or do we have more freedom? I've looked at various examples but they're all drastically different. I haven't received any advice from my school on how to go about doing this - IB is kinda inefficient, poorly-run, confusing and messy here - so I have no idea what I'm doing at any given time. Any advice whatsoever would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  21. I am in need of serious help. Okay so I am editing my IA for a final copy, it is due very soon. My topic is on aerodynamics and my question is "Does an increase in number of blades affect thrust of a propeller?". Now I have found a way to calculate it, though it was very difficult and I feel like its wrong. I am doubting that the data I used was wrong, because I used the measurements from an old aircraft online. Do I need to use a simulation instead to show my personal engagement??
  22. Hey guys! I am an IB student and actually completed all the IA required except Math. I need your help because I have no idea what topic can be considered as "official work" and "scientific research". Maybe you have some useless topics left and maybe you can share with me your ideas. Thanks in advance! XXX
  23. Hey guys:) I need to start my extended essay soon, but I don't know what to write about, I am definitely doing it in english though. I have an idea, which is to analyse an album and talk about the literature in the album. For example, if I take the album "Vessel" by twenty one pilots, I could talk about the use of metaphors and highlighting the characters mind set. Is this a valid idea, or should I stay away from music completely Thanks for the help means a lot
  24. I am currently procrastinating by hanging out here at the IBSurvival when I should be doing some english B written assignment.... someone else doing WA in english B?
