  1. Past hour
  2. Generally, they are on their website. Or, if you can't find them you might try emailing/calling someone from admissions.
  3. How do I check the university requirements
  4. It depends what you want to study mate. After you decide that, you can take a look at the uni requirements for the subject and adjust accordingly. Best of luck
  5. Today
  6. Hey guys, so my ibdp program started today and I came to know a little about the program. The problem is I wanna pursue space and my career and I need to take Computer science and chemistry as far as I know. What I have thought and that HL- maths, computer science, physics Sl- French, English, Chemistry, Economics the teachers are asking me only to take 6 subjects cuz it would be a burden. So how do I contact universities fast and who do I ask and what do I drop?????
  7. This is completely correct; ideally you would stick to the guidelines as closely as possible. If one section is way shorter than the guideline, then you might not be able to get the required in-depth analysis to score high in that section. But yes, the only word count that matters is the 2,200 limit, and you must stick to it. If you feel like you can't remove anything you've written already without decreasing the quality of your answer, try to be more concise in your writing - e.g. remove the amount of connectives, use shorter equivalents (e.g. "and" instead of "as well as") and so on. You only have to cut down 100 words, so hopefully you won't have to edit much. Hope this helps!
  8. Hi, You should try to get a proper meeting with your adviser where you can discuss your questions properly. A lot of advisers don't dedicate enough time for student guidance, but your adviser should be your first and most important source of help for your EE. Meet with him/her and try to get all your concerns answered. If you still need help, you could find literature EEs online and see how they approached their work. Keep in mind that there's no right or wrong answer to how you structure or approach your question, so don't copy a past EE, just get inspiration from it. In the end, you should write whatever feels right for you - it will then be easier and less confusing to write for you. Also, if you change your mind as you are writing your EE and want to start all over in a completely different manner, then do so. It's okay to edit and change your EE, as you may not get it right the first time. Good luck!
  9. This gives you the general entry requirements, but if you want to study specifically Economics, then the typical offer for 2019 is:" 38 and above International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) points, including 7 6 6 in Higher level subjects, with 7 in Mathematics". More info. on the course is here: http://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/Undergraduate/Degree-programmes-2019/BSc-Economics If you want to see the courses available at LSE and their specific entry requirements, you can find them here: http://www.lse.ac.uk/Programmes/Search-courses?query&f.Study Type|type=undergraduate&=query&f.Subject|subject=Economics Good luck!

    Help me

    To explain the whole IB would take way too long. As the comment above says, your teachers will explain better, and you will get a better understanding of the IB as the two years progress. But there's also several blogs and articles online to help you understand, just search your query online. If you can't find what you look for, feel free to message me and ask me any questions.
  11. Done! Good luck!
  12. Also done! Good luck with your IA.
  13. Thanks for replying! So finding the surface area and volume was the original idea, but I thought it was too simple for a Higher Level topic. Thanks for helping.
  14. Yesterday
  15. The word counts of the sections don't matter. They are just guidelines of roughly how long they should be. The 2200 limit is the only one that you need to be mindful of.
  16. Done and good luck!
  17. I'm doing my IA this summer, meaning I don't have a way to contact my teacher with questions. Does it matter how many words I have in part A and B and C if the word count all together is 2,200? My total words at the moment are 2,300 and I have 1,600 in my investigation (I know, I've already had like 5 panic attacks about it) whilst the other are shorter but still have everything they need I think? Advice on what I should do? My deadline is on August 10th.
  18. It wouldn't affect your application because i) it is only grade 10 ii) school knows that IB is not the only way for admission.
  19. In general drag coefficient is more of a physics topic. Speed and air resistance is also typically modeled as a linear relationship which is really not that advanced. I think just finding surface area and volume could be enough, especially since most roofs cannot be well-approximated by volume of revolution so it is challenging by itself.
  20. My teacher recently suggested a maths IA topic that I don't think anyone has ever done before. It is about finding the surface area and volume of car roofs, and investigating how the speed of the car is affected by air resistance. I could calculate the surface area using integration, but are there any other concepts that I could possible investigate this? For example, would going into drag coefficient be a good idea? I think it involves some calculus. Thanks for your help!
  21. So I was in a French school my entire life but decided to study the IB program because I want to apply to colleges like Harvard etc. and I thought the IB is better for that. I started this past school year Pre-IB class (grade 10) and dropped out 3 months later and went back to the French school which I will stay in till I graduate in June 2020. I dropped out because it was hard to get good grades as I don't know any of the math and science terms in English. (Also for those of you who don't know, the French high school system is just as hard or even harder than the IB) Ps. I have very high grades at the French school. Will I have to mention this in my college applications? If yes, how will top colleges interpret that? Will it affect my college applications in any way? At least, I'll be taking the SAT in May. (I'm preparing)
  22. Duranti, Marco. "Utopia, Nostalgia and World War at the 1939-40 New York World's Fair." Journal of Contemporary History 41, no. 4 (2006): 663-83, pp. 664-665. EE fun.
  23. Last week
  24. Hey, well from what I know, there are individual program requirements which you would have to look up but overall they have high requirements. Looking at the IB requirements for admission: Which, I do know for sure is that their grade requirements for IB are from 37-38 points, and either want a 6,6,6 or 6,6,7 in your Hl subjects. This website may be of more help: http://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/Undergraduate/Prospective-Students/How-to-Apply/Entry-Requirements good luck
  25. I am starting my ib programme in a few weeks and I was curious as I want to perceive my career in economics London school of Economics is heard to be an excellent place .I just wanted to know what subjects and how many points are required to get into London school of economics .
  26. Irregular diploma can be requested at the beginning of DP, in order apply to a post-secondary program that needs three or more courses from the same IB group, such as three language courses, or three natural sciences. If approved, the student can take a course from each of four groups and three from the same group. Usually, a student will just choose to take a seventh subject.
