  1. Guys, I am in a hurry. I was doing my application for IE University in Segovia to take a dual bachelor of Law and Business Administration, when I "stumbled" in the admission tests. They require either the IE Admission test or other as SAT, LNAT, CAS or ACT. The Cambridge Assessment Test (CAS) includes those Language tests like the First (FCE), the Advanced and the Proficiency, right? Because I have done my First (FCE) Exam and if it does count, then I must use it as I haven't done any of these. Could anyone who knows or has been confronted with these admission tests explain help me? If I am not able to upload my FCE result, then can you explain to me how can I do one of the other exams and am I still on time? Really I need fast answers! Thanks in advance, Richard
  2. Hello, I hope you all are well. I will take a gap year after I graduate from the IB, which means that I will apply to colleges in the US at the end of this year 2017. When time comes, will I have to send my mid-year report card? or will I have to send just my final grades from the IB? Is there a possibility that I can just send my final grades? I would apprecate any response. Thank you, D.
  3. Hi I took the November 2016 exam and received 43 for my IB score I expected a grade around 38, hence made a very limited application prior to the score release. Now I have a far better score, I wish to apply to many other prestigious universities like oxford, yale, etc, but unfortunately nearly all of the universities' application deadline has ended except for some universities in Singapore. If I want to apply to those universities I would need to wait until this year's October~December in order to apply. Is it possible to do that? I am really afraid that 1. there might be disadvantages regarding admission by doing this 2. there is a set limit for how long the IB score stays valid for applying and I may go pass that limit. Please help!
  4. Hello to all future Law students, I've been on the forum for a while and I've seen that there are quite a few of you who plan on studying/want to study Law at University. I'm currently a second-year Law student at LSE in the UK and I like to think I have a pretty good idea of what studying Law is about at University and a career beyond. I figured I'd start a thread where all of us can come together and talk about Law, what it actually means to study it, what it's about, what you can expect beyond a vague idea of it being challenging, and such. I'm not saying that I will have all the answers, but I will endeavour to answer as many questions as I can. I'm sure there must be other Law students on the forum or University students who have friends in Law. As future Law students, in a year or two, you guys will have a lot of information and experiences to contribute as well. So yeah, any and all questions/concerns about studying Law or working towards making a career as a Solicitor/Barrister/Arbitrator/Advocate/etc. are welcome. Cheers, Arrowhead.
  5. Hello, I have an essay I'm writing for my subsidiary module at university. Its a cultural studies/sociology module. The essay is due on the 9th of Jan, and I'd ideally like it to be proof read by then. Its a 2500 word essay. The essay title is: Through a detailed example, critically discuss the possibilities and limits of consumption and consumer culture in the creation of the self and/or identity. So if anyone is good at proof reading and is willing to do this task for me, I'd highly appreciate it and would be willing to proof read your essays in return too. If you can do it, please email me at: and let me know as fast as possible, so I can email it to you. Thankyou!
  6. Hey guys, I really want to apply to some top universities and I plan on studying MechE or ECE in the future. I am currently taking: Math HL Physics HL Economics HL Chemistry SL English LangLit SL Spanish ab initio Are these subjects fine for applying to good universities? Thanks for your support!
  7. Hi guys! Do you think doing maths studies will hurt my chances of getting into top universities, for an art & design degree? And is it better to get a 7 in maths studies or a 5/6 in maths SL? I think id be able to get 5/6 in SL if I work hard, but I'm wondering if I should take studies to be able to focus more on my Art HL... I was in IB MYP extended before, but wasn't one of the strongest ones in my class... subjects: Art HL English HL ITGS HL Physics SL French AB initio Maths SL (thinking about studies) let me know what you think? thanks!
  8. Hi Im future IB examer in 2018.btw when do you guys first get PRE-IB score for applying UNI?
  9. Hey guys, I was hoping to pursue a career as a writer. I have written a few sketches myself and even at school, I mean everyone points out that I should write a few stuff, eventually, even if not as a "real" career. So, I was hoping to take a Law degree. I would like to live in the US, though I would like to start off at the UK, for example, take a degree and thus, if possible, go to the US to make a living. The problem is if I take Law in London, lets say, I won't be able to practice law in the US, right? Or can I take a post graduation in american law? Also, do you think that in the middle of the degree I can do an erasmus or something to the US? Or be a writer in the US? Do writers in the US get well paid? What about lawyers? Can you please help me out in this dilemma? Cheers, Richard
  10. Hi, So I am in the second year of the diploma program and I need to apply to universities now. I have a score of 32-33, which is not the best score. I have a 1250 SAT (New) score. Any one have suggestions based on these scores? I have been on Usnews but its useless for us iB students. Please help Regards, Scott.
  11. Hey guys. I found this scale online for converting IB scores to GPA: 7 = 4.0 6 = 3.7 5 = 3 4 = 2.3 I was wondering how accurate this is. I've got a GPA of 3.85 according to this (39/42 in my first year finals). Does that sound right? The thing is I'm not sure how this would take into account EE and TOK. If anyone has an 'official' scale to convert IB points to GPA, please let me know.
  12. Hey, I'm a French citizen who lives in the United States and is applying to UK colleges. I was looking at requirements for EU colleges and I started realizing that their IB requirements seem exceedingly high. For example, UCL, EPFL, Imperial college (which are all high-end, I will admit) require a 39 Predicted Grade total. I don't know about folks in Europe but here that means 6 on almost every single exam. There's no way any teacher would give anyone a predicted grade around or above 6 at my school, especially for science courses. I have a 4.3 GPA and I'm in the top 10 percent of my school with an 800 on the SAT Math, so how comes these scores are so unbelievably hard to achieve even with my high standings? Comparatively, Ivy League requirements here in the US seem like a breeze. Are IB teachers elsewhere just more lenient or am I not trying hard enough?
  13. Hey Im doing the full IB diploma with Maths HL, Physics HL and Computer Science HL, Business Management SL, English Lang and Lit SL and Language AB Initio SL I have anticipated IB score of 6 in everything except business which is 7 plus two points for EE so my total anticipated IB score is 39 points. I want to study computer science at either the University of Waterloo or the University of Toronto. What are my chances of getting in? I did the new SAT with a score of 1400/1600. Please reply as soon as possible. Thank yo very much.
  14. Hello guys, I was just looking at the course I think I want to do at uni (I know year 2 and only just deciding and cutting it a bit short but anyway) and it says UK education requirements to be accepted and it only mentions A levels and the required grades but then there was an option for non-UK education and there was no mention of any specific course so I was wondering if any of you knew which one IB would come under? Thank you!
  15. Guys, I am on my 2nd year and its time for applications. I got my predicted grades, which gave a total of 37 points and 18 on the HL subjects. I am thinking about pursuing English Literature and Creative Writing in the UK. What universities do you advise? I thought about Lancaster and Kent (which has a degree of Eng. Lit and American Lit. and Creative Writing with a Year Abroad). Thanks guys, Richard

    Hey all, I have just got my predicted grades and I am looking at about 34 points. I want to apply to UBC badly and I'm not sure if they are likely to accept 34. Did anyone get in with anything lower or the same points ? Appreciate all your helps guys !
  17. Hey everyone, I was wondering if someone could please explain to me what happens when you get a lower score than your anticipated grade. I am solicitous about this. Let's say I am applying to the University of Edinburgh and have the anticipated grade of 41/45. If I get 37-38 at the end, how will that affect my application? I know that in the UK you get a conditional offer but still I am confused about this grading system. Thank you in advance.
  18. Hi there! I'm doing now IB certificate in Vienna, Austria. I went to Vienna University to ask about the application by the IB Certificate but they rejected me saying that an IB certificate is not considered as school leaving certificate, and therefore I have no idea what to do next. Do anyone of you have information about universities that accept IB certificate around Austria and Germany? Thank you all.
  19. Hi, guys I am really worried about myself It's my first semester in DP and at first I did not get used to the system. So I got very poor scores at first but my scores improved in this semester. I think maybe I am getting a 7 in maths, 6 or 7 in chem, 5 or 6 in English and 6 for history. Perhaps I can get 7s for Spanish and Design tech, but I am really not sure because they say it's very hard to get 7 in DT. I am not a student with top grades, strong competitions and sports. I could only write some blog posts about chemistry and draw some science illustrations. I am only good at drawing. That's all. So I wonder if there's gonna be some universities that want me Some of my chemical element graphics attached below. Univs not gonna look at them. All they care are grades and recommendations and things like that...
  20. So, this year is my first year of IB, and i'm taking Maths SL and Physics HL. I've always wanted to study Physics and Mathematics in the UK, and i've started looking into universities in the UK. I'm really interested in attending Strathclyde Uni, but i'm not sure if it's a good uni? They ask for a very low mark (32), and I'm not sure if that's good or bad... If anyone knows anything about this uni, or knows another uni with a good programme, I'd be very thankful!
  21. I am currently enrolling in the diploma program and I'm taking math hl, physics sl and chem hl. I am wondering should i worry about the universities later and focus on my subjet choices that will get me through ib, or select my subject choices based on my targeted uni? Help

    Hey, Did you guys apply for any University? If so, can you please specify the University and the faculty? Because of I did not apply to any, I don't really know the procedure very well. Also, did you take or planning to take SAT 1 test? I'm planning to take it on December 3rd, 2016. Do you think that it will benefit me at all?
  24. Hi all, I am currently applying to the US (fall 2017) and noticed that most of the regular decision application deadlines are in the first week of january, does this refer to the last day to start an application or the last day to send in documents/grades (because our mock grades are released at the end of january/beginning of February as well as the SAT results). Will they still accept my mock grades and end of year report in jan/feb or do i have to be completely finished with the application before the january deadline on their website. Thanks.
  25. Hi! I currently have an urgent issue. In Sweden there will be a change next year that will make it near impossible to apply to universities here. We still have time (ca 3 weeks) to influence this and hopefully stop them. The change will mean that to get into medical school for example at Lund uni it will take 44 points, which is crazy compared to Oxford's standard offer of 38 points. They are saying that 45p (IB) = 20,0 (Swedish) which is not true because many Swedish students get 20,0 but only 24 IB students out of ca 11 000 has gotten a 45 in Sweden in the past 10 years.
