  1. World Literature Paper 2013 ("Family Ties" By C. Lispector)

    This essay was an analysis of Clarice Lispector's use of narrow settings in her work, "Family Ties". "Family Ties" is the title of the collection of short stories we covered in class. In this essay, I attempt to analyse four stories.
    Although I think I offer some acute observations, some ideas are left undeveloped (granted, 1500 words isn't enough to say something significant) and some ideas do not mesh together with the essay prompt very well. The essay also sounds a bit verbose, and I think I used too many big words or used inappropriate words because it is quite hard to understand at times.
    I didn't get the mark breakdown, but based on my final mark, I would guesstimate that this essay received a mid 6 ~ low 7.
  2. Comparative Paper 2 on Drama (Beckett, Shakespeare, Miller)

    Prompt: "Visual Action can be as important as speech on stage". Discuss with referencing at least two works that you have studied.
    I chose to write my essay on Beckett's Waiting for Godot, Miller's Death of a Salesman, and Shakespeare's Hamlet. We only got 90 minutes to do this essay, so it's a bit unfinished near the last point/conclusion.
    Received a 6.
  3. Macroeconomics Commentary

    Macroeconomics commentary on the monetary policy employed by the Bank of England. Article is attached to file.
  4. International Trade Commentary (Econ HL)

    An Economics HL Commentary done by me. Article is also attached (South Korean Won tumbling and its effect on neighbouring countries).
    I believe I got a high 6 on the Commentary.

  10. Physics EE Report+Exemplars

    This file was published by IBO, and it lists how candidates did on each section of the marking criterion. Suggests improvements for future candidates and includes the marking scheme for 3 example EEs. The ultimate guide to the Physics EE and worthwhile to leaf through to make sure you don't make the same mistakes. (Not my original file)
