  1. Awesome, thanks for the reply! Do the details include IA results at all? e.g. orals in languages, etc.?
  2. Hey everyone, so today is the day, and I'm guessing most of you haven't really been sleeping a lot to say the least. Our school IB coordinator said he will give us our IB score (which would be converted to an ATAR based on South Australia conversions) this morning between 8am and 10:30am ACST. What I am trying to find out is, I know we can login to the IBO website on the 6th (today being the 4th) of January, but when can we view the individual subject grades we have achieved, including EE and TOK grades, and even how we went on the internal assessments like orals, written assignments, etc.? Thank you, and good luck to everyone!
  3. q was 3 I think so vertical asymptote I wrote was x=3, then the horizontal asymptote (assuming I found p right) was 7 as x approached infinity? I know x=3 is definitely right but I'm not sure if I got the horizontal asymptote right.
  4. Yup bell curve question. Did you get something like 0.5 / 0.89.. / s.d. = 44? (We are allowed to discuss answers here right?) Unfortunately the bell curve didn't click for me in the exam, so only got part a and b I think of the entire question - I remember first bit was half of 78.87% but the fact standard deviation wasn't given screwed me up (though I realise now what it should've been). I see! You probably received partial marks for working / method though I'm hoping so!

  6. Ahaha my tactic exactly!! I never learnt theory of the firm and it paid off so much :) Hahaha we outsmarted the IB I did the same thing with paper one :/ and am a little worried now. Apparently a very similar question was on a 2008 paper urgh. Paper 2 and 3 were surprisingly easier than i thought Agreed! My friends were all like dude you can't not revise theory of the firm, it's like the biggest topic in HL economics! Good thing I checked out the past exams and saw that only max 1 theory of the firm question would be for each paper meaning I could just do the other Yeah I'm pretty annoyed with 1a, it felt like I had never covered it in class or anything, like I never remember my teacher mentioning the words "price incentives/functions" ever. Ah well, only a 10 mark part, the 15 mark bit was much better! And yep, loved paper 2 and especially 3 (hoping for a 7 in paper 3 at least!) Heyy yeah it will be interesting to see what happens with the mark boundaries for econ. You do geography HL? Me too. Any idea where I can find some recent practice past papers? Hey I'm stressing out about geog because I don't know any case studies I've got past paper 3's from 2011 until 2014 may but no mark schemes for them, otherwise you could go on freeexampapers.com/#/IB but those papers are like 2010 and older. I should have asked my teacher for past papers, now it's probably too late If you've got facebook or something I could send you what I have?
  7. I got a volume of something like 0.68 or something around that because I forgot to square the function so got that wrong haha. I think from memory it should have been 30 or something because it was meant to be modulus as the function went negative (if this is the question where the function was above and below the x axis?).
  8. It would have to be topic 5 - Statistics and Probability i think APGP - 2 Logarithms - 2 Calculus - >4 Stats and Probability - >4 Binomial - 1 Circular Measure - 1 Trigo - 1 Transformation of graphs - 1 Cant remember the others Felt the papers were more challenging than M14 and N13 for sure. Fingers crossed for a 7 though Yeah, basically there was a lot of functions questions in both papers (which there usually are year by year anyway, so focus a lot on this). And agreed, definitely more complex than the past papers, at least I found these ones required more logic like for example the bell curve question at the end of paper 2 and even question 9 of paper 2 as well.
  9. So what's everyone's thoughts on paper 1 and 2 for maths SL? (It's been 24 hours since I did the exam so pretty sure timezones are all good). I found paper 1 easier than paper 2, there was definitely a bit of logic required for some questions, particularly paper 2 question 9 and 10 to manipulate the different parts. I definitely found these papers more difficult than may 2014 and last year november, what did everyone else think?

  11. As long as you don't copy anything word for word, and you cannot use the same article. Similar ones are fine because most articles will have similar points in them anyway - e.g. unemployment in different countries, where you would talk about similar advantages and disadvantages etc. Pretty much as long as you don't copy word for word or use the exact same article, it's fine Edit: And make sure you make your own diagrams - either use word or powerpoint or photoshop or even draw and scan.
  12. @IBfreakingout - don't worry, the kids in my HL class hated paper 2 (and even 1 a bit too). They didn't think they went well at all, so you're not the only one!
  13. Nice! Yeah 1a for paper 1 confused me and I thought it meant price incentives in terms of elasticity and hence the more inelastic a product is the higher the 'incentive' the price function is. Looked up some examples on google afterwards and realised it was just to do with market equilibrium... I agree, paper 1 is very crucial for time management and I ended up only having about 15 mins to answer the 15 minute discuss question, however it was a great question I must say. Yep, 2 was great on paper 2 (can't remember what 4 was). Discussion question at the end was good, and definitions were relatively easy too and the diagram questions were good. Same with 3, I don't think I lost any marks (or at least only a couple). Question 2 was by far the easiest due to being demand functions etc. I might add I actually didn't revise theory of the firm on purpose - I knew you could choose questions that didn't involve it. A little risky, but it payed off
  14. Paper 1 was alright, not many questions in the form of calculations but generally okay. Paper 2 was nice this session. Data question was a simple resistance vs temperature q with calculations required for the slope, line of best fit, uncertainty plotting and calculation etc. Second question I forget, but third was all nuclear physics. Section B options were good, I chose the power sources/electric fields part (the last one - 6 I think) which was great, easy explain questions such as distinguishing between renewable and non-renewable energy, between photovoltaics and solar heating panels etc. Only some calculations which were easy too. Paper 3 definitely struggled with - our school options were A and B (eye sight/wave phenomena and quantum/nuclear). Option A was alright, however Option B tripped me up and others. Type of questions were nothing I had ever remotely seen before, and was heavily focused on explain style questions. Overall the three papers weren't too bad, 2 was definitely the best which is good as its weighting is the highest. By the way I'm an SL student.
  15. Hey everyone! What were all your thoughts on the three economics HL papers for 2014 November? I found paper 1 alright, except for 1a) which i realised I had answered wrong regarding price functions and incentives. Paper 2 was great, I did questions 2 and 3. Paper 3 was excellent, don't think I lost many marks at all, did questions 2 and 3 (didn't do the theory of the firm one).
