    Have you ever had thoughts of suicide?

    I have not ever considered it myself, no But I have had a friend who has, and a few years ago, attempted to commit suicide. Luckily, she didn't succeed and although she still suffers depression has not gone there again. "Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem"

    Psychology EE - forming research question

    annnushkaaa: Thank you! My EE got 30/36 (A). I included a variety of studies which I found in academic journals via Google Scholar or Google books. I would enter, for example, "stress and compulsive eating" into the search and read what came up. Then I selected studies which I felt furthered my argument or had good critical thinking discussion points. I also included arguments for other causes to demonstrate a more 'thought-out' essay. It was pain staking and time consuming, but make sure you reference properly and thoroughly any studies included. In Psychology EE's, you are supposed to use APA Referencing- you make your point and then have the reference in brackets next to it. For example, in a point about a Freudian theory: "Freud argues.......(Freud, [year of theory])" Hope this helps!

    Math Studies & Psychology?

    Don't worry about it! I applied to Southampton and Kent for Psychology and take Maths Studies, and got an offer from both. I also have friends who applied to the others you are interested in and got offers even though they do Studies...maybe it depends on your overall score/extracurricular that may make you more desirable a candidate? Hope this helps/reassures you

    Helpful Apps you used in IB

    I used the BioNinja app, which is available for Apple devices and android for Biology, in addition to the website. It was helpful for 'on the go' situations where you may not be able to access the website. For History, a helpful website was http://rudbeck-ib-history-revision.wikispaces.com/, which covers most of the topics at Standard and Higher History. This website was useful in supplementing my own notes

    IA psychology

    Try either Google Scholar (I found some of Extended Essay material here) or Google Books as it will come up with all books mentioning what you searched... Google Scholar: http://scholar.google.co.uk/scholar?hl=en&q=dual+coding+theory&btnG=&as_sdt=1%2C5&as_sdtp= Google Books: https://www.google.com/search?q=dual+coding+theory&btnG=Search+Books&tbm=bks&tbo=1 These websites are brilliant for finding information without having to reference a webpage too, because you can simply reference the article/journal that you're taking the information from. Hope this helps

    7th subject IB Music too much?

    IB Music is extremely tough. If you really want to do it, consider swapping another of your subjects for it. One boy in my year did Music SL, and he had to compose 2 pieces of music of his own and then play them. It is not going to be a fun ride as a 7th subject. As sameera95 says, you'd be better off doing music for CAS hours if you love music. With your subject combination, particularly your highers, you will not want the extra work it will need. TL;DR: Don't do it

    Biology HL Tz2 May 2014 Paper 2

    Also did this question, also said salivary amylase. Overall, I was happy with this question but I may have dropped a few marks on part c, as I had a mind block-but I didn't know the other questions well enough to do them instead

    Biology SL TZ2 Paper 3

    didn't the question ask about trypsinogen? or have i misread it Don't worry, it's probably that I remembered it wrong My friend told me the answer was enterokinase, so whatever that one activates I'm sure you got it right don't worry!

    Biology SL TZ2 Paper 3

    I was so happy with it, especially after the first two papers. I really wasn't expecting such a nice set of questions! (Options E and H ) However I did make some silly mistakes like forgetting what enzyme activated pepsinogen :/ hopefully didn't do too badly though!
