  1. Hey Well, I am facing the same dilemma however not whether I should go to university or not. I am definitely going to university and I have applied to the UK, The Netherlands and Canada! My dilemma is one that is financial. My mother has been a single parent ever since I was born and she was to pay for both my sister and me as my sister graduates next year. However, what I will do is, and what many of my class-mates will do and even my Physics teacher did is take out a loan . We EU citizens are VERY lucky to live in a union of countries which offers us some very good benefits! There are PLENTY of universities out there which are relatively cheap! I suggest you do extensive research! Plus, forget taking a part time job! Instead, dedicate yourself to your studies and try your best to score a scholarship Apply to as many universities as possible to maximize your chances! The UK is a is a country I believe one must apply to (In the UK you don't have to start paying a student loan until you have started working). I applied to Canada because they have better opportunities for IB students in terms of scholarships (Top Eng uni's there are U of T, Waterloo, UBC and McGill all to which I have applied). I applied to the Aerospace Engineering program in TU Delft because it is a fascinating program and is in English and only 1500 Euros a year ! If you want to talk about this anymore fell free to email me or pm me [email protected] Subjects and predicted scores: HL Chem 7 HL Physics 7 HL French 7 SL Maths 7 SL Eco 6 SL English 5 TOK C EE A
  2. Well I mean I am going to reiterate something very obvious and that is pastpaper, pastpaper, pastpaper! Maybe you could have your parents go into the school to tell them to give you a chance in HL? If they allow you on a conditional offer my advice once again will be pastpaper, pastpaper, pastpaper! Question bank is GOD in the IB
  3. I am a student in IB2 with Physics HL, Chemistry HL, English HL, Economics HL. Maths SL and English SL and I have always dreamt of becoming an engineering particularly a mechanical or electrical engineer. I know that many universities in the UK would not accept me because I do not have HL maths however what is the case in the rest of the world such as Canada, the US and rest of Europe? Could anyone who was in the same shoes or is in the same shoes as me help me out ?

PS: I know I am at a disadvantage in the UK for having taken SL math so it would be appreciated it that was not reiterated for I feel enough upset about it.

  6. Hey man! Thank you very much for your help! Yes I will be asking you for help indeed Would it maybe be possible for me ask you for your Skype for the sake of practicality. Btw nice little story at the bottom their
  7. Hello all , I am a student who is in IB2 and who has recently decided to take up HL Maths due to the fact that I believe I made a very wrong decision by taking SL Maths due to the fact that HL Maths is more or less required everywhere in the UK for engineering. The reason for this very bad decision was mainly due to the fact that I was encouraged to get as much points as possible not focus less on requirements for courses. I have now been told by the HL Mathematics teacher that I will have to sit a test on the 13th of October for Complex and Imaginary numbers and I will be able to join the HL class only and only if I attain something above a 4. May I please have some tips? I do feel sad that I have made this decision soo late into my life and it is quite overwhelming however I am trying to keep my mind on track. Aside from studying the content in the book and doing past papers are there any other tips you wonderful mathematicians may advise me ? PS: I have my mind up so please do not sway me from my decision for I have had to try and ignore enough of this already Thank you very much guy.
  8. However I do not think that MV = PQ will be useful? Am I wrong? If so can you help me out by explaining how I could incorporate this into my essay?
  9. Thank you very much! This is great stuff and you have been very helpful .I shall get cracking right away.
  10. Thank you very much OnceAgain for the reassurance! A survey I have done is ask people if they knew about bitcoin, whether they would be interested in investing in Bit coin and whether they were interested in a number of it's aspects. This will be part of my primary research, what is your opinion? Could you please share some ideas with me in regards to the actions the Fed may take in order to contract the risk?
  11. Well then I am quit simply utterly screwed... I have to hand in my draft within 4 days and I have done 3200 words on this research question...how would you recommend I proceed? Do you have another research question which would be better suited?
  12. Some of what you have said is wrong I believe http://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R43339.pdf The following is a link to a pdf which is what the Fed had to say about Bitcoin
  13. I am also currently doing my Extended Essay on Bitcoin and my research question is "“How will an increase in the supply of Bitcoins affect the monetary policy of the US Federal Reserve?†Could I please get some opinions please ? My primary data is consisted of surveys which I got people living in the United Stated and I am also questioning leading economists working for the Federal Reserve.I would like to get in touch with you DragonBorn for it is quit lonely out there for someone doing their EE on Bitcoin We could work together and share opinion and review each others work if you would like!
