  1. Ahh the good old existential crisis, I have experienced many of these. These tend to happen to me when I'm bored or extremely stressed. What I tell myself to get out of that mindset is that these things do matter because these moments are what make my life, and that is significant. As for avoiding future thoughts, I create a new project, work on homework, something to keep my mind busy. These thoughts come and go and it shouldn't change the way you are going about your life. If it is constant and it is affecting your daily life it could be depression and I recommend seeing a professional. Try talking with your friends about what you're feeling and maybe spend more time outside and with them if you have the time. The worst thing to do when these thoughts come is to be alone. Here's a video I think comically describes the infamous 'existential crisis'.Hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1jaY136B_k
  2. the draft should be the full thing. This way you can fix any big mistakes right away. Make a plan for how you want to structure it and research in order, and make it flow. Really you just have to buckle down and right it. Hope this helps!
  3. There are other pathways into uni, for example taking college courses to supplement what you're missing, to do this you need an explicit list from the university of what you're lacking. Hang in there, things will work out as long as you don't give up! Hope this helps!
  4. Having doubts in IB is like breathing. All throughout my IB I doubted I could pass, do the EE etc but looking back I did it, you just have to take it one step at a time. You'll get through it Hope this helps!
  5. I got a lower score than you and I'm happy. I dreamed of a 45 but realised that anything above 30 was out of reach for me personally. Not everyone can get 30's or above, and that's ok. As long as you can get into the uni you want it shouldn't matter. I personally don't think you need to retake the IB, just accept the score and end that chapter of your life. Hope this helps!
  6. I did an EE draft and was told that I needed to completely scrap my whole idea and start from scratch. I researched drafted, and redrafted an extended essay in a month. You should have plenty of time if you put it as a top priority
  7. you have 2 questions smashed together, maybe make it something like "to what extent is Vicario's remorse a result of machismo?" Hope this helps!
  8. I'm not in economics but I find mnemonics to be really helpful. Here's a website for some. They're catchy so they stick in your head better https://www.mnemonic-device.com/economics/
  9. 6 weeks?!?!?!?! I was given 1 week, but to be fair all we did was study for the second half of year 12, just in our classes. My study method really depends on the subject. For biology I basically memorised all of bio ninja. Math I have a tutor and we go over past papers and stuff like that. English I just re read my texts for paper 2 and did past papers. And spanish and history I watch tv with the open textbook next to me hahaha
  10. As mentioned above, you will have to discuss religion in TOK, if you are not up for that this may not be the program for you. If you take biology you will also have a small unit on evolution, no need to believe it but it is a mandatory unit. Before I started IB I was Christian. I was very close-minded (sorry to anyone who talked to me during that phase) and IB really taught me to be open minded and question things around me. I soon started questioning religion itself and found that my perspective had changed and it was no longer something I believed in. I'm not saying this is going to happen to you but I did some reevaluating and religion just wasn't doing it for me anymore. However there were still classmates who believed throughout the program. Hope this helps!
  11. I did it in history and I loathed it. I really wish I would of done it in English lit but what can you do?
  12. I've found that if enjambment is used the poem is describing a continuous action. So the structure reinforces the content. It's also hard to make a list and expect it to be much help in the exams. Sure it is great to know the techniques but the reason for using it will depend solely on the poem you have. I went with this method for paper 1 English and did pretty well. This method (Below) will also keep everything organised. WHAT- What is conveyed? HOW- this is where technique comes in. WHY- this is where you really need to focus and explain why the HOW expresses the WHAT. This should be the majority of your paragraph. Hope this helps!
  13. It depends on the severity of the mistake. If you used a direct quote as yours you may lose your diploma or not score highly on the EE. I would talk to your coordinator immediately about it just to know where you stand with this issue.
  14. I think it would be fine if you somehow made it your own in some way, like designing a different method or altering a variable.
