  1. Actually though, it seems kinda easy to cheat in an IB exam. Cheat in the sense of taking a test as somebody else. Cause nobody checks who you are or if you sat at the desk with the paper with the right name right? So if the invigilator doesn't really know who you are or what subjects you take, you can be writing an exam as somebody else. I dont know why you would want to, but it would be possible
  2. Quizlet helps a lot!! There are sets on IB economics already, but maybe make your own. Creating my own sets helps me so much - I remember/revise things just by typing them But yeah, Quizlet would be my best bet...
  3. 1) you dont have to number, unless it's let's say an English essay and it continues on a second booklet, you might want to make it clearer 2) you have to write 01,02,03... 10 in the boxes on the left edge of the page. the directions also tell you how you should fill the exercise number in, so dont worry too much about that 3) you should do (a) (i), then (ii) etc, but you need to leave a line or two so it is neat and clear that you are answering another subquestion. you might want to keep filling the box with the question number when starting (a)/(b) even if you have been doing that question from the beginning but you dont have to. Answers don't have to be in chronological order but at the same time it's not very organized to have 1b and 1c in completely different answer booklets 4) for a wrong answer you need to clearly cross it out, ask for a second booklet and re-do it there, maybe make a note underneath the crossed out answer that you have re-wrote it on the 2nd booklet. 5) i'd say leave a line between (a) and (b), that's what you do for the answer booklets too so i suppose it also stands true for the in box answers. Try to be neat and don't write 2 more tiny lines underneath the last line if you feel you don't have enough space in the box, answer that question in an answer booklet but make a note in the box that you have done so. 6) the answer booklet has name and number boxes only on the first page, you dont have to keep writing it. 7) btw they also give you a 'coversheet' with all your details (name, number, subject of exam) for every exam, you attach that in front of the exam + booklets when you're done; you have to say which questions you answered in a certain section, if you had a choice (for example, in p2 Section B of the sciences), and also how many 4-page answer booklets you have used. Good luck on your exams, but stop panicking! Once you're done with the first one you'll realize that it's actually no big deal
  4. That's all there is to this post - just wanted to wish good luck to all of you who are going through the same struggle I am I hope that you reach your aspirations and your ideal IB grade and finish IB alive, proud, and excited for all the wonderful things that lie ahead (~summer partying).
  5. Hello! Can we use the IB calculator we have (TI-nspire blah) for college? It would suck to have to buy another one...
  6. What do you need help with? You can message me if u like
  7. Presentation

    I wouldn't use it as the real life issue, cause it's not really 'real'. Couldn't you find an actual example? And then you could use Grey's Anatomy as a supporting point. Also, are you mentioning that doctors should not treat family members due to the emotional attachment and subjectivity? This is a real thing in medical ethics so you should definitely use it!
  8. In your question, you need to have a clear reference to an area of knowledge or more. So your first question is good in a tok way, but refer to an area of knowledge so for example - how do we decide what is ethically appropriate for children if that links to ur real life. Your second question is indeed a bit broad - focus on one or 2 areas of knowledge that link to ur real life situation, like 'to what extent are rules important when acting on emotion'. Take your real life issue and note down the AoK that you can use for it, and then come up with a question - I think that's the easiest way.
  9. Yees I think market failure is the best one - easy diagrams to draw, easy analysis, super easy to find an article about it!
  10. Harry Potter was basically my childhood, I grew up with the books and the movies, the first book was published 5 days before I was born
  11. Consider the setting, mood/tone and some features like repetition or imagery etc. For Poe specifically, he is a pretty dramatic and 'mystical' poet. If you look at The Raven for example you have the repetition of 'Nevermore', the dark, mysterious mood, the symbolism and connotations of the raven (being the bird of death and all).
  12. Crash Course Biology is super helpful!!! In general, videos help quite a lot to understand a new subject. And practice past papers, cause this is just the best way to learn what IB wants
  13. Pending Really? Then how will the universities know my marks and scores? Your councelor sends your predicted grades. I don't remember how they get the final exam grades though, but they do in July But I am applying as an individual so there is none to send my predicted grades to the university or is it? Ooooh then sorry I have no idea... If you can't find it on google then maybe email UCAS?
  14. FOA

    You have to identify features that make an advertisement/speech/article effective and/or how the work relates to gender/power/society/culture. For the FOA it is easier to do it on an advertisement or sth short and visual cause you can show it in class before your presentation. Do you have anything related to what you want to do yet? If you don't, start the other way: find sth you like and then find what you can analyze about it that relates to this part of the course.
