    Summer review schedule!

    I was just thinking the exact same thing! Maybe re-writing notes for biology? Practicing oral french speaking? Watching french movies and trying to do some written analysis on them? (To make things interesting, you know). I might revise math by doing some practice problems. I'm also thinking of reading some books for the EE and starting a rough draft. I haven't really been keeping track of CAS hours, so I'm going to spend some time logging in those hours. It would be helpful if someone could post some tips and suggestions that have been useful for them!

    BMAT scores

    I'm interested in writing the BMAT test this November. I was wondering what universities consider to be an acceptable or good BMAT score. I tried looking at the requirements posted on university websites but there are no specific numbers. I am not sure if this would help, but the university that I am considering is Manchester. I would greatly appreciate if someone would be able to provide some insight. Thank you in advance.

    IB 1 and final scores

    Hi everyone, I'm almost finished my first year of IB and next year will be my final year (IB 2). I was wondering how much of IB 1 actually counts towards our final IB scores out of 45. I did my IOP presentation and TOK presentation this year and I was told that it would count. What other major assignments or evaluations from IB 1 count towards the final marks? Please let me know. I would appreciate it a lot! Thanks.

    Standard Deviation

    Never mind! I just watched a KhanAcademy video that explained it pretty well.

    Standard Deviation

    Hi, I was just wondering whether anyone could tell my why the standard deviation formula is sometimes over (n-1)? I need to know for my IA. Thanks so much in advance!

    Should I just drop to academic chem?!

    I'm from Ontario, Canada as well and it's true. A 60% is definitely an IB-scale 3. At my school, a 7 is 96% or above.

    IA IB 1

    Hi everyone, We're doing an IA in my IB 1 Math class as our summative as well as practice for the IA we'll be writing next year. I'm wondering which topic I could choose that would only require what I've learned from the syllabus so far. We haven't done calculus or anything. My teacher said that an easier one to do would be statistics, but how would I approach this stream of math without my IA being too simple? I was thinking of a topic along the lines of organ donation in my province but I have no idea how to turn it into a question. Coming up with a topic seems really tough and I'd really appreciate your help! Thank you

    I'm doing HL Geography but I'm in IB 1. I started a google doc with some of my friends and we post notes, assignments, etc. on there. PM if interested?

    Peer review WL/WIT essay

    Could someone please private message me if they would be interested in reviewing my Works in Translation essay on A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen? It would be helpful if you were familiar with the play. Hopefully within an hour would be great! Thanks in advance!

    Strong thesis for the WL Essay

    Hey, thank you both for replying! The prompt was given to me by my teacher, but she did mention that our thesis could deviate from the prompt a little bit. So I looked at my thesis again and decided to scrap the 'actions' bit: In a Doll's House, the setting of 19th century Norway reveals characters' perspective on morality. My three characters who I will focus on are Nora, Torvald Helmer and Nils Krogstad. Bluedino, if I were to use actions in my essay, you mentioned to specify what type of actions I'm talking about. Could I say "the setting affects characters' interaction with money and thus reveals their perspective on morality"? Or it still a stretch? Thanks again!
  11. Hi everyone, My English teacher said that to score high marks on the WL essay, we needed to have a really strong thesis. I was wondering if anyone could give me feedback on mine. I'm doing my essay on A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen. The prompt was: To what extent does setting affect a character's actions and reveal theme in A Doll's House? My thesis: In a Doll's House, the setting of 19th century Norway affects characters' actions and thus reveals their perspective on morality. Do you think this is a strong thesis or how could I make it better? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
