I know what I’m trying to say but I just make it sound so awkward! My essay is over Mary Shelley’s book Frankenstein. My thesis so far is, “ In Frankenstein the monster is commenly percieved as the villian, however Victor shows how he is the true villain with his need to keep his creation a secret.”
The easier subject would be different for everyone. It depends on what your strength and weaknesses are.
If you feel like they're both the same difficulty for you, check what the universties/programs you're aiming for want to see. If its ESS, then go with that. If Bio, go with that.
Personally, I'd go with Bio since unis and programs recognize it more easily as its a rather standard course. I don't imagine many programs outside of IB doing something like ESS so they may have some trouble classifying the class for admissions. Biology SL is not too bad of a course- I did HL and it was fine.
That shouldn't be allowed. Teachers are allowed to ask guiding questions and such but that's about it. I remember reading a document from IB where they were unhappy with how some teachers would try to interfere with the commentary more than they needed to and they most certainly would not approve of teachers basically giving out the commentary to the students.
Here is the information you'll need regarding reporting this to IB since this is unfair to the students who don't get any external help and against IB regulations.
i have to choose today if i take ess (sl) or bio (sl)
hl: spanish english and french
sl: psychology and maths
im not good at geo (seriously. im so bad) nor bio (i've had to take biology basically my whole life but im not good at it) and ess is basically those two subjects together. im also not good at writing essays.
and even though i've always taken bio, im still not good at it. if i take ib bio, i'll probably get a tutor so i can get better at it.
which one is easier? which one would you take?
We have a teacher in the school who practice every IOC extract with each student before the recording. Her class size is small. She only needs 6 extracts. She gives the extracts to students and then practice each IOC extracts with her students one by one. Before the recording, her students have memorized what to say for every extract. I know it does not sound ethical, but is this behavior allowed by IB regulations?
