    • Hey,   I would like some advice and suggestion on what subjects I should select for DP, as the title indicates I want to specialize in the Econ/B&M area. These are my choices: Math HL, Econ HL, B&M HL/Bio HL, lang lit sl,  spanish sl,  bio/b&m sl. My first concern is that is B&m needed for my area and is it seen as a soft subject. Also is Math HL necessary for Econ or B&m area.
    • I am resitting Maths SL this November and very much lacking motivation at the moment. I have a tutor once a week but otherwise very much revising on my own. Anyone else in a similar position? Any ideas for ways to keep motivation up? Thanks!    
    • My teacher's refusing to teach us paper 2 because she's mad at us but I really need help, I've never written a paper 2 before and the books we've chosen are 'Death and the maiden' and 'The Visit'. Can anyone PLEASE help with how to write a paper 2 essay. 
    • Hi, sorry to hear about the adverse circumstances. Also, I've never heard about any of the Lanterna stuff but that seems cool. Good luck. (side note: Don't worry if things don't go to plan. Ironically, I missed getting six uni credits for TOK because my essay was one point below what I needed. Anyways, not getting those six credits is going to let me spend the whole of next year on exchange! So you never know and different opportunities arise) Regarding TOK, my teacher never really used the book anyway. He disliked it. Most teachers are pretty vague as the want students to explore the subject for themselves. One thing that you can certainly do is ask your current teacher what he's looking for from presentations. He probably won't tell you much but it never hurts to ask. I only went into my presentation having watched a few videos and was able to score decently. I think the trick is to practice presentation and also try to make everything that isn't actual content as sharp as it can be. Even if that isn't the main focus of grading, it will certainly help your score. Here's IB's rubric. Also, I believe that you start with a real-world example and work to a knowledge question in the presentation (the opposite of the essay) but I may have that backwards as I can't remember so check that. And remember to incorporate secondary knowledge questions.
