    Can you do a TOK on maths?

    We watched this in TOK class. Had a discussion on the good ol' "is math invented or discovered". Super late reply, but hope you found a cool topic!

    Starting IB next year

    You will connect with other IB students who feel the same. In my IB grad class around half of the students played league and they would play together. They even made a fundraising tournament and count it towards CAS. I gotta be honest in that I didn't hang out with people outside of school, but IB isn't gonna be your entire life. It's a phase and it will end.

    School tells me I'm going to fail the IB

    1. In my classes, we would do reviews after we finished all the material, so there was a week of time where we just did past exam papers. If you mean studying on my own, I started intensive studying in April. 2. I was in the same position as you. My coordinator told me in mid IB year 2 that I was going to fail and that I should seriously consider dropping those courses (DP -> certificate). It was disheartening. If anyone could give me courage, it was the coordinator. However, there were a few things that I considered in my decision not to drop. With applicants of similar standing, my preferred university preferred IB students over non-IB students. If I do fail certain courses, I will just have to stay in high school for one more year to finish some courses, not the worst thing in the world. I loved the friendships I made in IB. I had too much pride to give up. My parents encouraged that I continue because they believed that I will be fine if I really put my mind into IB exams. I also felt just unmotivated back then. Now that I look back, I was just really depressed. I knew I had to study, and that if only I can get myself to, all will be fine. It was frustrating and I hated myself. In May, I would sit down in the empty guest room in my house, and just study. I was able to get into a mode where I knew I wasn't allowed to think about anything but to look forward. I had something I wanted, and I needed to orient myself. OP, I think you are also a person who has high expectations. Perhaps it will take a lot of pressure for you to move forward, but don't be afraid. Keep looking towards your goal, and you shouldn't have room in your mind to be worried about anything else. If you can't seem to see your goal clearly, set smaller goals. "I will be motivated if I can just get myself to finish one set of practice exams today". Discipline takes practice, but once you get it you are invincible in life. It's very much possible, because I have been there. edit: my predicted grades || actual Chem/Bio/Eng HL: 2/6/5 || 4/6/5 His/Fr B/Math SL: 5/6/3 || 4/6/4

  7. What English course is this? English Literature? English Language and Literature? Either way, I'm not sure how your topic has any ties with literature. Perhaps you should add whatever you're doing with literature into your research question. E.g. How do... as seen in [literature] by [author]?

    Computer science at Canadian universities

    Hi op, I suggest waiting until the last minute of your deadline for Carleton. You can ask call Waterloo and tell them about your situation. See if they can prioritize reading your application. If not, then accept the offer. The worst thing that can happen is just pay a small fee to withdraw your acceptance if Waterloo does accept you. The timings of universities is pretty bad, I totally feel you. Hope you get into Waterloo!

    Canadian Universities for 26-ish final grades

    Hi OP, it is not impossible. Don't forget that both UT and UBC have other campuses too, and those campus' admission standards are much lower. You can transfer campuses easily if you do ok in first year, so it's not big of a problem. The smaller campuses also accept applications until a later date. I know someone who actually was not accepted to early admissions in the US (when you do early admissions you can't apply to any other schools) so by the time he knew he was not accepted, most application deadlines have already passed. He applied to one of the smaller campuses and got in immediately. There's always hope for IB students! :') UBC and UT love IB students.

    IB stereotypes in your school?

    At my school, there are generally two views of IB students. 1. "They think that they're all that just because they are learning harder stuff" 2. "Those kids who are always complaining" IB students tend to stick together, they have their own little culture kind of thing. As a grad class, we didn't fit in at all, but we had each other. There is a general view that IB students feel more superior (and really, I think it's ok to feel like you deserve a little more for all that you're going through! Not as a reason to heavily look down on others though) but there is always the jealousy that non-IB students have. "IB students are special". The grad class gets to plan events without considering IB assignment deadlines and exam schedules, but when we try to plan something by ourselves, it's "not fair to the non-IB students because we have a history of prejudice".
