    • IB is very insufficient to prepare for AP Physics C because the latter is calculus based. 
    • My proposal is to heat tea at five different temperatures and to measure the concentration of caffeine to see what the effect of temperature is on caffeine concentration. My teacher approved the project, but encourage me to change it not to involve tea because that apparently makes it a "second grade science fair project". Other than that, she didn't give me a whole lot  of advice. Based on her advice, I'm assuming if I keep the project the way it is, I probably won't be able to score very high. I have seen several other posts on this forum with people who have the same, or very similar IA proposals, and some have wondered if it's too complicated. Should I keep my proposal the way it is, or change it somehow? If so, what sort of changes should I make?
    • Hello, I am an 11th grader taking IB HL Physics 1. I plan on taking AP and IB tests. I need to sign up for AP tests very soon, and I want to have the AP tests done before applying to college next year. If I take IB HL 1 physics, will that prepare me for the AP Physics C mech exam? or just the AP Alg 2 exam? or should I be doing at least a little bit of independent study?

    • Hi, You're smart because you gave the answer I was going to give you. You can certainly self-study these subjects. Nothing is stopping you from buying an IB Biology/Chemisty HL book. You can test yourself on past exams. You can do the SAT subject tests to rove to schools that you know your stuff. That's a really good idea. I don't know about med schools and what undergrad courses are/aren't sufficient; but I'm sure there's tons of stuff online regarding that. Many North American schools have sections on their applications where you can notify about anything they should know about regarding your academic history, and you should certainly explain this. They'll like it if you study a subject independently. That's a major skill that you need to have that you're demonstrating. If you study this stuff and really do learn it well, you should be absolutely fine for North American schools. And whatever happens, it'll be alright. I know it seems really stressful right now but it'll be okay.
