    • First, you should always abide by deadlines set by your school. With that said, IB wants all IA, EE, ToK internally graded (with pre-moderation and predicted grades) by mid-late April. Suppose it takes the school about 2-3 weeks to grade them and validate as original work, you need to have everything done by late March. Most schools want them in earlier.
    • Hey Max. First, I have no idea about US uni's so you'd have to research that, but I know about UK uni's as thats where I plan to study and History HL is a necessity. And yes, I would be doing an undergraduate degree in Law. UK schools look at ur IB marks, however they will very rarely look at your school marks. There is a difference, you could get a test in lets say, ESS, that is graded and put in your report, however this does not affect your IB grade, which is composed of IA's, Exams, and other stuff. I have also never studied Econ in high school before doing IB, and I am doing very well right now, just because you never did econ prior uni doesn't mean you can't do it. Might be helpful, but very manageble. However if you want to have a career in econ, u should take econ, but be cautions that choosing between history and econ may restrict you down certain roads. Before you make a decision, research uni entry requirements, make a pos/con list and list all of the good and negative aspects of both subjects. The subject that has the most value in future life choices should be useful in helping you decide which subject to choose. Hope this helps
    • Let's say my research question was set up something like this (not the actual question I want to use and very broad): "To what extent did the (historical economic practice) of (country) influence (country's) modern (economic practices)?" What I'm concerned about is whether examiners will remove marks for partially focusing on events closer to modern times. Would they think that I'm straying from the subject if I analyze modern events in relation to historical ones (or vice versa)? I know that in a philosophical sense, everything that has already happened is history, however I think that goes beyond both the point of a history EE and what the examiners expect from them. Just to note, the actual question I want to use is not related to economics and I know that I'd have to refine the question to be more specific. It's just a general template for what I want to do. Thank you!
    • Do Option 2. Option 1 may not seem hard at first glance, but that's a lot of coursework. It's better to get 40+ with 3 HLs than to get a lower mark with 5. In addition, I've heard that if you want to go into engineering, you will have to do 2 sciences. 
    • Personally, my Pre-IB school kind of sucks in terms of education. But I can't say anything about any of the other schools, because I've heard that some people were able to receive perfect IB scores at their Canadian IB schools.
