  1. Since our school offers the DP in French, we have the choice between English B (SL/HL) and Spanish B (SL/HL).
  2. I did it in French, the only language offered at our school.
  3. Not necessarily two different interpretations of the text, but two different main ideas. Your main ideas are two themes that you can find in the text. For example, if you have a poem about war, you might come up with: 1- The war as a source of suffering 2- The hope that remains in the poet's mind despite the war These are just examples I've come up with, but your ideas must of course fit the text you get. It's quite difficult for me to explain, because we did these paper 1 during two years at our school, so at the end I was able to find my main ideas without thinking about it. Hope this helps!
  4. That is way too little. You have to analyze the text, that is explain the meaning and give examples from the text. This is the structure our teacher gave us, and I managed to get a 7 in French A HL using it! You should adopt this structure: INTRO (100-150 words) - Little intro related to the theme of the poem/text (general ideas) - Present your poem/text (what's the theme? What's going on in it? Who's the author? etc.) - Present your two main ideas that you will develop in your text FIRST PARAGRAPH OF DEVELOPMENT (250-350 words) - Present your main idea (ex.: the poem presents the sea as a dangerous entity.... whatever suits your poem/texts) - Give examples FROM THE POEM/TEXT (you must use figures of speech) For each example * Give the name of the figure of speech you intend to use * Give a quotation of the example you'll use * Analyze the meaning of your example: how does it prove your paragraph's main idea? You must give from 4 to 5 examples per paragraph SECOND PARAGRAPH OF DEVELOPMENT (250-350 words) - Present your main idea (ex.: the poem presents the sea as a dangerous entity.... whatever suits your poem/texts) - Give examples FROM THE POEM/TEXT (you must give figures of speech) For each example * Give the name of the figure of speech you intend to use * Give a quotation of the example you'll use * Analyze the meaning of your example: how does it prove your paragraph's main idea? Then again, you must give from 4 to 5 examples per paragraph [i recommend using your most original idea as your second main idea, and begin with the most obvious one.] CONCLUSION (100 words) - Present, once again, your two main ideas, but in different words (if possible!) - Opening (you can link your poem/text to other pieces of literature you've read before (in the target language), or you can do as you like) Hope this will help!
  5. Teachers don't actually mind that much about your grades. Sure, they'll be happy if you get a good grade in something you care about, but I doubt they would really be angry at you for getting a bad grade. And if they are, who cares? It's your own grades, and you won't see them anymore: you're done with the IB! ;-)
  6. Well I think you would benefit in the admission process from mastering a second language, which French B SL could offer you. Nevertheless, Spanish AB initio won't give you a high level of proficiency. And don't forget that French is one of our country's official languages!
  7. I did my extended essay (history) in 3 weeks and I managed to get a 35. So one month for your draft is plenty of time!
  8. I got an A in History, which I was really happy about, considering that I don't take this subject!
  9. Maths HL is done by humans. I'm sure you'll get through it, don't stress so much! By the way, wait until you see your GCSE's results, you might have performed better than expected!!
  10. Hi, Taking TOK will give you credits for the provincial requirements. Nevertheless, it won't have any impact for the IB, because you won't receive the diploma. Even if you do take some IB classes and you end up doing the certificate program, it still isn't necessary to do TOK or EE. You should email your IB coordinator or school counsellor to confirm that, but I don't think you'll have to complete your EE.
  11. Remember that you live in Canada. I doubt there would be such a broad selection of French comics in the US!
  12. Calm down, stressing won't change anything! For my part, I work during summer, so I have many other things to think about. You should try doing some activities, seeing some friends... Good luck to you all!
  13. Tu peux aussi aller voir sur ce site, ils vendent des "comics" en français. C'est une boutique située dans la ville de Québec, au Canada, qui livre également aux États-Unis. http://www.imaginaire.com/indexv2.jsp?url=/lib/jsp/sectionv2.jsp&cat1=BD&langue=fr
  14. Be careful!!!! Canadian requirements aren't the same as in the US! I don't know for other provinces, but Maths HL is a requirement for medicine in the province of Québec! I did Chemistry HL, Biology SL and Maths HL and got into medicine. Nevertheless, I know the admission process isn't the same in English Canada... You should definitely make an appointment with a guidance counsellor so you don't take classes you don't need.
  15. I'm not nervous, I just need to be awarded the diploma to get into university!
