    Psychology Study Guide

    It's one of the best investments I have made in my life, well worth the money.
  2. Hi, If I rewrite some exams to increase the grades, do I then get a "revised" diploma with the new grades or do I just get some certificates of those subjects and grades?

    Psychology HL remark?

    Hi, I have got 7s during most past papers mock we have done in school so it was a big surprise and disappointment to me when I only got a 6 in the finals. I need 5 % more to get a 7. I got 24/28 from my IA and it felt like papers 1, 2, and 3 went well as well. Should I ask for a remark since I really want that 7. How likely (or unlikely) is it that I would get a grade raise?

    Do our teachers get to see our exams at any point?

    The invigilators in the school I go to are our teachers. On monday we had Physics paper 3 and then the invigilator was our biology teacher and the other supervisor was our English teacher.

    Paper 1 was pretty okay in my opinion. Paper 2 on the other hand was a nightmare, and it's 40% of the final grade..

    As far as I know you can write whatever option you want.

    'Rigging' the IOP

    I think it is unnecessary. When my class did the IOPs the student asked if there were any questions, and very seldom did a student ask a question. Then our teacher asked a few questions and that was it. I got 27/30 marks and I hadn't prepared to answer any questions nor did my teacher mention the questions she asked when she gave me the marks and feedback. So I think the questions afterwards will not influence your marks. If you collude with a classmate and make up questions for he/she to ask then that's a breach of IB rules. It is unfair that some do it and in that way seem to know the stuff better than they actually do, but as far as I know the questions afterwards don't influence your marks.

    Exams vs. sex

    See it from the bright side, sex is an available alternative Not everyone is that lucky.

    Fountain pens

    I think the only requirement is that you write with black or blue ink. So I am pretty certain you can use your fountain pen as long as the colour of the ink you use is black or blue. However, I suggest you bring a "normal" pen to the exams as well, in case you are not allowed to use the fountain pen.

    What is your hardest and easiest subject?

    Easiest: Economics HL and Maths SL Hardest: English Language and Literature HL
  13. May 2014 an A in EE was 29/36 marks and 23/36 was a B. May 2015 for TOK was 17/30 for B and 22/30 for A, counted as presentation marks + 2x essay marks.

    SAT subjects requirement

    Start by checking which sat subject tests are offered at the test center where you're going to write your sats. Centres outside the US may not provide all the subject test found on the sat website. It's easier to choose when you know what you can choose from. I would recommend you to write Maths II or whatever it is called, the more difficult of them and another of your choice, for example English.

    EE Help needed

    Some universities may consider it a plus, given that you score really well in your EE. It would perhaps show that you are genuinely interested in the subject and not just scored a good grade in the subject as such. However, the potential plus is really small, if it exists, so I would not recommend you to consider that a factor when you decide on an EE topic. Hope this helps
