  1. 30/36 for my maths EE.
  2. I don't want to be part of the discussion on whether god exists. But the real question. Does it matter? What difference does it make? Even if god existed, it still wouldn't mean that we have to agree with him. In the case of Christianity, the bible says eating bacon is a sin, so is eating lobster, or having a round haircut. Whether these asinine words come from a suprime being or not, we just have enough common sense to realise how ridiculous they are. But ideas like being kind to people or forgiving your enemies are something on which we should all agree. It is never about god. It is always about how you interpret what god says. People are just picking and choosing the quotes from the bible to justify their own causes.
  3. I think the problem that I have with the statement is the use of the word "only". This is quite a sweeping generalisation in the sense that he/she actually believed that war is the only resort to find peace. It is like saying... Any disagreement, however small, any difficulty, however tiny, can only by resolved by means of violence and barbarism. It is against everything that democracy and liberty stand for. Yes in some cases we need to be confrontational and fight for what we believe in. But "war" is a whole different level. Millions of death, years of suffering, and the feeling of hopelessness. That is why we should always try to resolve differences by understanding and accepting them. In many cases we can, but we just don't, because people believe in crazy statements like this. History sparkles with examples that aggression does not pay. And I think we can do better than this. War is always the last resort. It is not the only resort. The person who wrote this statement did not know what peace means. He/she had not experienced wars and the death of the loved ones. They have no respect for lives.
  4. That is not true. Many universities will accept you with 30 IB points. Although it might be true that it is not a particular high score, you did manage to pass, so congratulations on that Austria: most unis just want you to pass the diploma so you have more or less fulfilled the entry requirement. However, your german must reach at least a B2 level in order to begin your studies in Austrian universities. Germany: the application process is more troublesome. You need to convert ur grades into the german Abitur equivalence and then apply via something weird online. But 30 is more than enough to get into some unis. However, you must do at least one of the following subject: Bio HL/Phy HL/Chem HL/Maths HL. There are more weird requirements. PM me if u are interested in german unis. The Netherlands: Some unis (uni of Eindhoven/groningen have english courses) have pretty much the same requirement (more than 28 points). They might however, have some other specific requirements such as "passing maths HL". So I can't say anything more without knowing the details of your grades. England: I think unis in the UK do care more about your grades than unis in other countries, but I am sure there are unis out there that are willing to accept you with open arms. I wanted to apply to a swedish/norwegian unis as well and most of them don't have specific requirements for the IB. highly recommend you sending an email to the unis that you are interested in. Best way to get info. Good luck.
  5. They are of course not "allowed" from a legal perspective, but whom are we kidding? It is way too easy for them to watch porn. Shouldn't that be a reason for the government to intervene a little bit? Say.... requiring an account to get access to pornographic websites? (and the account owner must prove his/her age?) It might sound naive and it is difficult to enforce and it might invade people's privacy. but if there is a will there's a way. Just because righting the wrong is difficult doesn't mean that we shouldn't at least give it a try.... We are not creatures of despondency.... "parents should stop them watching it as much as possible." -- I am glad that you also think porn should be somewhat restricted, especially when it comes to protecting children. Parents definitely play a huge role here.
  6. I think porn should be restricted. But by that I mean children/kids/even teenagers (under 18 maybe) should not be allowed to watch porn. There is nothing wrong with porn, as long as the audience can distinguish between fantasy and reality and not become addicted to it. Overall, it is human nature to crave for sexual gratification and those with sound minds should be allowed to enjoy porn. Porn can be really awesome, and I bet only my rubbish bin will find comments like "watching porn is immoral/disguising" delicious. However, most children/young teens are not mentally equipped to handle pornography. Most of them are both addicted to and misled by porn, which engenders all kinds of problem. (Teenage pregnancy for example) I know you know how easy it is for young people to get access to porn nowadays and it is simply exposing them to all kinds of danger. This, in my opinion, should be a reason to restrict porn. Call me conservative if you will, but squeamishness about what we want our children to be exposed to is not the same as being stubborn. Some people are simply not mature enough for porn, and you know it. Porn is NOT unequivocally good for all ages! It is just common sense. So let us not defend the undefendable.

    To what extent do the concepts that we use shape the conclusions that we reach? Got a B, predicted an A, kinda sad. but I love this essay. Worked really hard on this. Hope it helps.

    Research question: How to decide which method - Cardano’s method or the trigonometric substitution method, to use for solving cubic polynomials with real coefficients? My Maths EE. It was written in IB1 so the maths isn't like super super sophisticated. Got an A with this essay though. A labour of love. Hope it can help those who want to write their EEs on maths. It is hard, but rewarding I think this essay could be a lot better, but please don't say anything hurtful.

  11. I think when it comes to stuff like this, it is highly recommended to check out the university's website for more information, or even contact the university via email. We cannot give you accurate information as it entirely depends on the university. But in Austria, german B is accepted as a proof of B2 german level certificate. And I think in uni of oslo, you don't have to do any other language tests if you do norwegian/swedish/dnaish B for your IB. But in germany you have to do an extra test. so ask the uni :0
  12. IBID Maths HL for the international baccalaureate. *IBID is the press. For maths it is better to have more than one textbooks. i personally have like 4 books (H&H is also nice and concise) and they did help me on getting a 7 in maths.
  13. I can understand maths Spanish and music, but eng lit is quite a surprise. haha. I thought it would take longer. And hope you got the marks that you wanted.
  14. May I know which subjects did you ask for remarks on?
  15. It really really depends..... I have known some native german speakers in other schools doing german B. They of course easily got a 7 but that "7" is a reflection of absolutely nothing. For subject like maths/natural sciences I would say grades do to some extent reflect one's intelligence. These subjects are more about problem solving under time pressure and are not very subjective. But overall.... I would say at a high school level, your IB grades reflect "more" of your diligence than your intelligence.
