    Nov 14 English Lit HL Exam Discussion

    I did the poem on paper 1 too, I think its more about finding a place to belong, a sense of warmth, loving and having a home-y feel. Hence, the title "The Hug". For paper 2, I did the Drama question: 2. The one about the notion of being "Infinitely positive and a sense of doing good" and to what extent do you believe in this notion, Or something similar to that. Overall I think it was an ok paper 1 and 2, not too hard. But the questions (for me) needed a lot of processing until I actually understood what its asking for.

    You know you're in IB when...

    When you add "To what extent... " to every possible sentence. E.g. To what extent can the HL chemistry kids survive their final exams? Or is it just my friends? hahaha

    do you have/had tutoring in IB?

    Yes ahahhaha, I have tutors for English, Chem and Math. Partly because I was failing these subjects in IB1 and also Chem HL was just too hard for me... Since im not a very mathematical based person :/ And tutors that understand the IB Syllabus is hard to find, I've had 2 math tutors and 3 chem tutors. I think the best tutors for IB are past IB Students or someone who understands the IB syllabus

    questions about paper 2

    I think it would also depend on what texts you have, all of my texts are plays so I think the quotes are quite easy to remember. To remember the quotes, I try visualising the scene and what they are saying. This is how I remembered the quotes, it seems really stupid but it actually works. Anyways good luck for exams tomorrow I hope we all get 7's

    Organic Chemistry Notes/Lectures

    https://www.youtube.com/user/richthornley/playlists he has both SL and HL subtopics. www.ibchemistry-review.blogspot.com.au/ has good summaries www.IBchem.com not very detailed but it works you can also google IB organic chemistry and there should be a list of websites you can choose from.
  7. Hi guys, so..... On the 18th of November Chemistry HL and DT HL paper 1 and 2 exams are all held in the same sessions. This means 3hours and 15 mins for the 2 chemistry exams and 2 hours and 45 minutes for the 2 DT exams. That accumulates to a total of 6 hours of exams without any breaks in between them. The IB specifically stated that afternoon examinations must start after 12 noon and finish by 1800 hours local time. Which is exactly 6 hours as well, and I'm pretty sure that you have to exit and enter the room for each exam with all the pre-exam stuff. This means that it would exceed 6 hours. I know that you are able to re-schedule exams if they are over 6 hours, but my exams are just on 6hours (only exams, not including breaks). Also the deadline for re-scheduling has ended already, Is it possible to complete these exams in this time? Is anyone taking DT and Chem HL or had this problem before? I already informed my parents and they are emailing the IB Co-ordinator about this. I just want to see your opinions on this as well. Thanks <- me after the exams

    CAS Help

    Yay! I just finished the Inner Core (CAS, TOK and EE) Yes, Golf and body combat classes counts for Action. As h0rr0rsh0w said CAS is completed across 2 years, but your IB coordinator would probably set goals to keep you on track. Such as by the end of year 11 you should have completed 2 Activities and have started on your Major project etc. or something similar to that. I think it depends on the school wether they let you go onto grade 12 if CAS, TOK or EE isn't completed, but I'm pretty sure they would let you go onto grade 12 either way. For me CAS and TOK started in grade 11 in the beginning of the year, whereas EE started mid-way though grade 11 and was due mid-way through grade 12. I think I've answered the question... ahaha if I haven't sorry, my brain is really dead right now. Anyways... Good Luck!!

    DT EE topic?

    So... I'm not really sure on what to do for my DT EE, so i was thinking something along the lines of "The influences fashion designers have on the 21st century though the usage of Materials, Product design and Product Development" But is this a good Research Question?? and how can i develop it? im not really sure about this one... Please help me!! Thanks!
  12. Well my math, chemistry and English teachers said that the study guides are awful and very expensive! and they suggested not getting them. You can see if your school library has some though. But for chemistry you can Try Richard Thornley on Youtube he teaches the SL and HL syllabus on youtbe and each subtopic is about 3-4 minute long. Im not really sure about the Math and English though.. Sorry :/

Hope this helped!!!
