  2. what is the most important topics for you guys? Like most important things to know?
  3. I am so stressed !! the exam is tomorrow
  4. If anyone is cramming for CUEGIS at the moment, check out tutor2u. I've got 6 hours till my exam and I think I might pass with the help of this ->
  5. Solve a lot of past papers and focus heavily on chapters 6 and above. The chapters before chapter 6 are definitely important, but since you're HL, you should be very familiar with the basics. Good luck with everything! 13 hours left!!
  6. Could anyone give good examples/ideas on which business to choose for Paper 2 Section C? Thanks!
  7. Yeah, I'm not the biggest fan of HM either, but thanks a lot for the suggestions! I'll definitely use them
  8. I am in my first year of the Diploma Program and I have to decide on a topic & question for the history IA. I have a family member who grew up in South Georgia (born in 41) as a twin. Her mother died from appendicitis and her father was very restrictive. She had to wear dresses and work in the fields and never experienced the classic rock n' roll teenage thing that we associated the 50's and 60's with. With her as my primary source, I could talk about feminism or medical stuff (twin studies, the death of her mother) or I could talk about the tension between white and black people during the time. I have no clue how to structure a good question, any advise?
  9. Pay back period and break even output (as well as target profit and so on...)
  10. Do you have an actual or practice essay written in this format ( not necessarily this topic) ?
  11. Yes, it is required for you to know the chi-square test in the Biology HL exam. I am pretty sure you didn't really read through the recent past papers, because May 2016 had Chi-square test question, and I still remembered it. Good luck to your Bio exam.
  12. I don't really like HM myself tbh - you need to be able to make it clear how exactly does it show localization of function, and using a case study is a bit iffy compared to experiments. Some central studies IMO: BloA: Maguire et al. (2000) - taxicab driver stuff, links to quite a few learning outcomes Martinez and Kesner (1991) - acetycholine, again multiple learning outcomes can also link to CloA in one learning outcome (biological factors on cognitive processing) CloA: Bartlett (1932) - may be a good idea to check with your teacher to see if this is actually that good a study. It links with quite a few learning outcomes, but the lack of rigour makes it somewhat iffy. Glanzer and Cunitz (1966) - MSM + main principles of CloA, also a good experiment SCLoA: Berry (1967) - links to multiple learning outcomes, really the only 'central' study that does this, others mostly revolve around just one
  13. Any wild guesses on what can be asked for Paper 2 tmr? Other than CUEGIS of course.
  14. Hello Chemistry Students, I just made a comprehensive app for IB Chemistry post 2017-2018 Syllabus. The app is completely free and it has a lot of useful stuffs. 1. The app is only 3MB so you won't be losing a lot of space. 2.The app has most of the Syllabus content and plus detailed videos for every chapter and every topic. 3. Key terms and all definitions specific for every chapter. 4 If you feel confident enough, you can test yourself with PastPapers, Quizzes, and Tests right inside the app. And if any of you are having problems, you can contact me through the app at any time. The Link to my app: I put a lot of effort on this app so any support will make me happiest person ever. !!!!! Regarding the iOS app: Unfortunately, I will not be releasing an iOS version of the app because Apple charges an annual minimum fee of $99 for its developers (which is remarkably high considering that my app is free and non-profit) while Google only charges a one time fee of $25. If you don't have an Android device, you can install BlueStacks to simulate an android device on your Windows PC or Macintosh computer here.
  15. Difficulty is subjective - some people may find the questions harder than others, depending on mathematical ability. If you've been doing well in math up until now there isn't much to stress about. What you do need to get used to is exam questions set underneath stricter time conditions - you have to do quite a lot of problems, both fast and accurately, and this is one thing that often trips people up.
  16. Thank you, my last question is why is there so much fuss about the exams questions. Some people complain exam questions come out of syllabus and its too hard. Is this really true?. If so can you please explain what kind of questions come in exams.
  17. (Still in construction; last edit: 30 April 2017) Hello there! What inspires me to write this long post is because of numerous questions I got in my inbox are mostly about "How to revise for Biology?" or "How do I get a 7 in my Biology HL/SL?" So here we go. Why should you trust me for this post? I have studied Chemistry HL & Biology HL, which I am a stressful little double-science student potato. The most insane thing I did was to get my Biology from 4 from the beginning of Grade 12 (IBDP1) into a 6 in my IB finals in Grade 13 (IBDP2). I would like to share how I really revise for Biology, a continuation from my post back in April 2016 for all you stressed out IB students. The study method in this post is suitable for: IB Final Exam for Biology SL and HL Students, normal in-school exams for Biology SL and HL Students Beware: this is how I REVISE for my Biology exam, it may not be applicable to you because everyone has a unique way of revising. Q1: Why is Biology such a hard subject to students? It has a huge topic range Requires memorization Requires different methods of revision Q2: How do we revise for Biology? What is the best method to do so? The best way to revise for Biology is to have a great habit of taking notes. Taking your own notes or highlighting key points in your book are the best ways to get things into your head. Biology has a huge and nearly impossible amount of knowledge that requires memorization, so a full understanding of the topics is the ultimate key to a high score in Biology. For IB Finals, I would highly recommend read your Biology materials no matter it is a book, or notes from your teacher, or even notes by yourself (if you have sufficient time), or else I will definitely recommend past papers. Past paper gives you an insight of how is it like in the real exam, the amount of time you need to finish one question, and also most importantly, reflect on your mistakes and weakness in particular topics. Let me give you heads up on what methods or strategies that you can use or might find this useful, don't be really stressed seeing all those names down there.(Each topic has different ways to combat) Flashcard methods will be useful in these topics: DNA Transcription, Replication, Translation enzymes involved in all different reactions(HL) Ecology (Domains, Kingdoms, Phylums, Classes for Chordata [HL only], Phylums for plants ) ** To memorise all those classifications, print out some pictures of animals, plants to have a fun game with Mitosis vs Meiosis (diagrams especially independent assortment and crossing over) Flashcard method will enable you to know the complete difference in the two similar processes that are very different somehow Drawing method will be useful for: Cell Biology Ultrastructure of cells Membrane structure Membrane Transport Molecular Biology Structures of amino acid, fatty acid, ribose, glucose Genetics and Evolution & Genetics and Evolution in AHL Chromosome (Also I will suggest finding some online practices to look at the genetic diagram, then doing Punnett square) Ecology Carbon Cycling Climate Change (release of greenhouse gases from different sources) Evolution and Biodiversity Cladogram Human Physiology (huge topic for drawing - so I may miss a lot on this topic due to my short-term memory) Whole digestive system Structure of villi Gas Exchange (details of the lungs - trachea, bronchi, then aveoli in bronchioles) Neurons and Synapses Nucleic Acid (Transcription, Replication and Translation) label all the enzymes (e.g: Helicase) in each process double helix structure - where are the hydrogen, covalent bonds Metabolism, Cell Respiration and Photosynthesis Respiration (Kreb Cycle) Photosynthesis (Calvin Cycle) Plant Biology (Identifying Stem) Xylem and Phloem differences Animal Physiology (e.g: Movement from AHL) and Option D in Human Physiology Notes will be useful for: All topics It has been a year since my IB Biology Exam, so I may forget to mention for certain topics or subtopics. Moreover, if you have any suggestions on how to expand this thread, please leave a comment below so I can improve this into a better post for May 2017 students who will have their exams very soon, also for future IB students. Good luck in your Biology Exam. Have fun!
  18. You would draw a labour market diagram for a specific industry and show a falling demand for labor in that industry..
  19. Last week
  20. I would suggest you study also Human Physiology definitely!!!!! Furthermore, study whatever you find difficult! GOOD LUCK =)
  21. Grade boundaries change from year to year and from timezone to time zone, but you should be aiming at around 20-25 marks in PP2, around 15-19 in PP1 and around 16-18 in PP3.
  22. Hello Everyone, I was wondering if we need to know how to conduct the test during the BIO HL exam? It is one of the outcomes, but none of the past exams I have come across had a question regarding it. Thanks!! And good luck to the May 2017 cohort!!

  24. Hello, Are the examiners going to be more impressed when they are looking at an essay with a balanced argument for both sides, or when they are looking at an essay that has a thesis/clear argument and tries to justify this throughout the essay?
  25. Here goes my first post; My IOC is right behind the corner, and as I am revising one of the scenes which is the sleepwalking scene (act five, scene one) I am facing a slight struggle annotating it. If here's anyone who would be willing to share their knowledge and toss me a couple of literary techniques of this paragraph or generally how to survive from the IOC I would be more than happy! I kind of regret taking English Lang & Lit now Thanks beforehand!
