  1. I would suggest talking to your teacher first about your concerns and asking him about how you can improve You're only in your first year of IB, so don't give up yet! You still have so much time to improve and the transition into IB is a huge shock for anybody.
  2. I think it really depends on where you live.. Here in Canada, your IB marks don't really matter once you get to university. If employers are looking at grades, they will be looking at your university grades and grad schools also look at your university grades
  3. First off, I think your topic might be too broad.. It'd be better to focus on one or two monarchs during that dynasty because there is already so much about one monarch (though there may not be as much on Edward VI because he wasn't king for that long). I would say do some basic research on the monarchs first and see what you can find about each of them in terms of the direct impacts they had on their people as well as their personal beliefs. Hope I helped a bit You're researching a really interesting part of history Best of luck
  4. I think you are definitely on the right track by looking at the tone, vocab and style because your RQ talks about looking at the rhetoric (which "the art of speaking or writing efficiently"). When analyzing the speeches, ask yourself about Trump's agenda in those particular passages. Ask yourself why the language of his speeches has such an appeal to the people who support him. This is an English EE, so try to not stray into a discussion on politics too much (even though it's really tempting considering the terrible things he's said). Hope I helped a bit
  5. Just give it time and see what area you're most interested in. There's honestly no rush at this point. Like what @IB_taking_over said, you don't need to declare a major until the end of first year or the end of second year (depending on the faculty you're in, and in addition the US, this also applies to Canadian universities).
  6. ¡Hola! Yo hablo un poco de español. No comprendo mucho. Cuándo estaba en escuela secundaría, yo aprendí español. En universidad, yo aprendo japonés. Japonés es muy interesante pero japonés es más difícil que español.
  7. You still can't discuss the exam (24 hours have not passed yet).
  8. All I had to do was apply and I got in (there weren't any entrance exams at my school or anything and anyone can take full IB literally) I went to public school I didn't need to pay for the IB program itself because the school covered it all (when I was in high school, I just paid my regular school fees and I think the only IB-related thing I had to pay for was a study guide which is optional anyways)
  9. I'm not sure because I already graduated and I have a really vague memory of the actual deadlines. Also, deadlines are set by your school
  10. You should follow the formal rules for the IA's as well and having in text citations lets the reader know where you got specific parts from. If you don't follow the formal rules and neglect adding in-text citations in the IA's, you could be tagged for plagiarism.
  11. This isn't really that bad, but rather annoying So during my first final exam for uni, the fire alarm went off twice within like 20-30 minutes of each other. Thankfully, the prof gave us extra time to make up for the time lost. Also I haven't personally witnessed this, but someone I know said that back in high school, in her chemistry class, a girl cheated on an exam and my chem teacher caught her. He spazzed at her and she was reduced to tears at the end.
  12. To be honest, I think you do have a pretty solid chance. No guarantees of course, but I think you should be fine if you can maintain your mark and have a solid personal profile
  13. I can speak a bit for UBC (current UBC student here) and U of T With UBC, I am not too sure about how they look at SAT scores since I'm a domestic student, but I can speak in terms of grades and extracurriculars. Depending on the faculty you're going into, 35 is solid marks wise, and with your EC's.. it all depends on how you wrote about them and you also don't just talk about your EC's but some questions also prompt you to bring in some other life experiences. You will have a decent shot at getting into UBC if you maintain that IB score and if your personal profile is up to snuff (they want to know what you learned from your EC's/other experiences rather than a description of what your EC's are). With U of T, I don't think you need to worry about bringing in EC's unless you're going for Engineering or Rotman Commerce because those have supplemental applications as well. If you're not going into either of those two faculties, then I would focus more so on marks. Again, I can't speak SAT-wise so sorry about that again Hope I helped a bit!
  14. hot because you had your exams in 2016 too
