extended essay format

We're starting on our Extended Essays. I was wondering if there is a specifc, IB-mandated cover page format. And in general, are there any IB stipulations for formatting or is it just kind of whatever as long as it's organized?

Ummm cover page is basic usually

Title

Candidate Name

Candidate Number

Subject

Word Count

Think that's all you need really

The essay needs to be in APA format with a table of contents. Paper should be split into headings/sections as well. 1" margins all around, 12 pt times new roman font.

You are in IB1 and just starting the EE. Do not worry yourself too much about it, once you get the main part done, everything else is nothing. :P

But since you are wondering:

Drake, there are the styles accepted by IBO:

. American Political Science Association (APSA)

· American Psychological Association (APA)

· Chicago/Turabian

· Council of Biology Editors (CBE)

· Harvard citation and referencing guide

· Modern Language Association (MLA)

· Numbered references

Main structure:

Title page

Abstract

Table of contents

Introduction

Body

Conclusion

Bibliography/reference/citation

The last point is very important, since if those aren't complete, it will be seen as plagiarism and therefore malpractice. I would start making a note of any source I use from now if I were you, just to be on the safe side. :D
