  1. Hey Guys, I am planning on studying Law in London. I have received my conditional and unconditional offers via UCAS meaning that I will head off to London in September of this year to start University (please note that I did not apply for an International Law course). However recent articles about Britain leaving the EU have been concerning me for the past weeks. I am aware that we still have to wait until the 23th of June until there is any kind of certainty about what will actually happen however it never harms to think about the potential outcomes already. My second option after London would be to study Law in Switzerland. I am now wondering what your thoughts are on this situation ? Do you think the BREXIT scenario will decrease the value of studying Law in London and decrease the Job prospects for me if I am planning on working outside Britain after my studies are completed ? Also do you expect Universities to immediately respond to the exit in regards to Fees and Program structure for a Law Course?. Clearly this is all very theoretical but I am really wondering what your thoughts are on this situation and what you would do in my Position go for London or Switzerland ? I hope all of you get your Points and make it into your Universities
  2. Hey Guys, I am currently revising for my language classes and was wondering how you guys are studying for the Paper 1 in any Literature language ? Evidently you can do past papers which is what I am doing at the moment however I was wondering if there are any other things you do ? I am looking forward to some new ideas Wish all of you guys the best of luck with your exams!
  3. Hey guys, I am currently looking for some revision guides and or general resources to revise for my exams. For now I am using the pearson textbook and the lanterna online textbook also I looked at the OSC revision guide. Do you guys have any other suggestions for good resources to revise can be webpages, revision guides etc free or paid. Wish all of you the best of luck with your revision and exams !
  4. Hey guys, I am currently working on the statistics part of my HL Biology IA. My teacher has suggested me to perform a T-test in order to answer the question of how mineral deficiency influences shoot growth. Now I have my data for the lengths of shoots for every 2 days for the respective dish where a specific mineral is lacking. Logically I would perform a T.test using the number of days and the length of the shoot however that would not help me to answer my question really. Anyone has any other suggestions for this or how I could involve the lack of minerals into the T-test ? Wish all of you the best of luck for your exams !!
  5. Hey guys, I am currently trying to put the finishing touches on my EE. After several sessions with my supervisor and countless attempts to improve it, I am still being told that my essay does not work in accordance with the rubric and that there is still potential to improve it. My EE supervisor refuses to give me any further information than telling me I should make sure it goes in accordance with the rubric and I slowly feel like she does not really have any experience with EE supervision. I have already requested a different supervisor but have been told that there is no capacity as we only have 1 english teacher with the IB Diploma qualification and the other ones are therefore not allows to give me feedback. I made friends and family read over it but they could not really help me as english is not their first language. Thus I am now at a point at which I feel like some external help/feedback from someone with experience would be very useful in order to get my Essay to the next level and move my score into the range of an A or B. Of course I am not looking for anyone to add content to my essay but rather give me the feedback that my EE supervisor does not provide me with. The essay is written for English B and focuses on the novel "To kill a Mockingbird". I am now wondering If anyone has any suggestions for tutors they have worked with previously or simply has experience themselves with EEs please let me know as I am unsure how I should proceed with this matter. Thank you very much and wish all of you the best with your upcoming exams !!
  6. Thank you guys for your help! I have just checked on my Pearson Vue account and found the options that have been selected. Apparently the teacher responsible for university applications at my school has already selected my options for me and entered my UCAS number, thus the confusion about never personally entering any of the details.
  7. Hey guys, I have taken my LNAT exam approximately two weeks ago. To do so I went trough the application process and have signed up to take the exam in a test facility in Switzerland. I know that the LNAT will be making my results available to me within early February according to their website. Also my universities are supposed to receive my results within 24h after the completion of the exams. Now I am wondering how the LNAT or Pearson respectively know which universities need my LNAT scores ? Will my universities be able to find my scores using my Name ? Because really there is not much more information I was required to provide throughout my application process, so I did not mention which universities I am applying to or what my UCAS code is for example. I checked the website but was not able to find any info on this topic. Maybe some of you guys are more familiar with the process and can help me out because I am worried that I missed out on some essential information they require to complete the process. Thanks for helping me out! Wish all of you the best of luck with your applications
  8. Thank you so much for helping me out !! Of course it is no my intention to cheat and I will surely not make this mistake in the IA that I will hand in to the IB. I can assure you that I would probably just redo the experiment using auxin hormones to improve growth and let the seedlings grow for only a week after my mock exams to save time.However I am currently thinking about doing my official IA on something completely different more to do with human physiology anyways as this one wasn't really isn't my best piece of work . However this Lab is nevertheless important and will influence my semester grades. Primarily my wish is to have the data sets in order to practice my error bar calculations and mathematical processing but of course I am also slightly concerned about my grade, however my predicted scores are in already and it is not my prior objective to get a good mark. Also my teacher is aware of my method so it should be fine.
  9. Hey guys I am currently working on an Investigation for which I need to create a raw data table. What I have done is to measure the average length of a plant seedling every day. I always used 10 seeds in a petri dish and then measured the length of ever single one of the 10 shoots in the dish in order to get the average seedling length for every dish. Unfortunately I have not recorded the lengths of every seedling individually and now only know the average length of all the 10 seedlings in the respective dish. My teacher has however only now told me that I need to present a raw data table meaning that I need to now make up 10 numbers (for each seedling) that will give me the average value (of the 10 seedlings in each dish) which I have used in my calculations. Example : Average I have used in my calculation = 3.2mm Data set I will need to generate : 3.2 / 3.4 / 3.2 / 3.8 / 2.8 / 3.2 / 3.2 / 3 / 3.4 / 2.8 = Average 3.2 (As used in calculations) The my issue is now that I will have to do this for 20 dishes from which I collected data over 14 days meaning I need a total of 280 of these sets and each has to give me a specific average. Does anyone know what I could do ? Maybe use a number generator in which I type my median (average) value and select a range like 2.8-3.8 (such as in the example above) and it will give me 10 random numbers within that range selected and the average of 3.2 (example above) ? If anyone knows a solution to this issue I would greatly appreciate any help! Also in case someone is willing to create the data sets for me send me a direct message please. Like all people before their mocks, I am simply short of time to make 280 data sets manually. Wish all of you the best of luck with your IB and the upcoming mock exams
  10. Hey guys I have recently started thinking about the Topic for my EE and I really want to write it in English B. Unfortunately I am not sure what topic I should chose as I really want to write something that interests me. As an aspiring or potential law student I would of course love to relate my EE to something to do with Legal issues or Law in general, however as my subject is english B it still has to relate to Language and Culture. Do you have any suggestions for topics I could write about? I would really appreciate any help or suggestions in regards to my title and topic! Thank you for your feedback !
  11. Hey guys I have just started to look at my EE title respectively the subject I want to do my EE about. However as I am just at the start of the whole process I have a couple of questions. 1) The Title of my EE is not necessarily very exotic to say, meaning that the topic is not very unique however I assume that the teacher who marks my essay will not grade me worst based on the fact that my topic is commonly used by many students and generally seen as relatively simple. Or do you think the fact that I choose a simple topic will cost me marks ? I mean the rubric of the EE does not mention anything like that but I just wonder about your personal opinion. 2) Do you think that the Title is specific enough ? 3) Thinking about that topic, what topics would you talk about or what factors would you discuss and where would you use specific statistics ? 4) Did any of you guys write a similar EE and can give me some tips maybe ? Thank you very much in advance! Raffi_gio
  12. Hey guys I have recently started to look at the entry requirements for several different universities that I would potentially be interested in. However when looking at the requirements some universities state something like 38 points including core points with at least 6,6,6 at HL subjects. Now as I am taking 4 HL subjects, my question is if I will have to have a 6,6,6,6 in my HL subjects or if I will be able to choose my three best HL subjects. Logically they would let me choose my three best HL subjects as I am doing the fourth one voluntarily. Would be glad for any help, suggestions or even personal experiences! Thank you very much Raffi_gio
  13. Hello Guys When applying to university, there are many factors that will be considered such as your subject choices and grades however if another student has equivalent grades and subjects, the outer curricular activities that you have done can set you apart from the other applicant and eventually determine if you get accepted or not My question is as follows. How can I really proof that I have done all the activities that I talk about (Athletics, Academic clubs and organisations and other extra curricular activities)? Since I have been actively training martial arts since 7 years and been involved in many other academic clubs and courses, I will of course want to bring that up in my application statement as well as my interview. But will they trust me with what I tell them and judge by the way I talk about or do I simply bring in evidence such as photos if I did not get any written certificate which seems a bit silly to me considering that you show up for an interview with a big map full of certificates to show off ? Note that I am not planning on applying for a scholarship for sports where they will research your past athletic performance and so on. I am just referring to an normal application for a competitive course at university where you can set yourself apart form the average with your extra curricular activities. I would appreciate any answers be it personal experience or just opinions and thoughts on the topic because I was not able to find any specific information anywhere.
  14. Hello sandy I am not sure if this is really the best forum to get a job or even get some advice for a job in Dubai. No doubt we are backed by an intellectual community right here but most of the members have not even finished their IB diploma yet meaning that most of us are not yet experienced in finding professional jobs. I would maybe suggest that you enter some forums specific to Dubai and you might even be able to find a forum about engineering in the UAE due to the vast amounts of construction work that has been done there over the past years. If thats not an option i would start to look from platform that offer jobs this might help you to get an insight into the circumstances of the job market in Dubai and also allow you to make some first connections I am sure you will succeed with your search because Dubai is a flourishing city for an engineer in particular Wish you the best of luck with fulfilling your future goals
  15. Hello guys I have just recently read the entry requirements for the LSE Accounting & Finance undergraduate course it states that LSE will require you to have 38 points HL math is desired but not necessary. Based on the fact that LSE does not have interviews with their potential students I would guess that they do only take into account your motivational letter or personal statement and obviously your grades. Now to my question ! How high is the chance of getting accepted with lets say 39 points and SL math but a very appealing personal statement and CV ? Of course I know that nobody will know the exact answer to this question however I would still be interested what you guys think about this topic ? I mean if they have 120 free spots they might as well get 120 applications with 42+ points (thats at least what I think) so would they even consider someone with "only" 39 points and SL math or even prefer this person over the one with 40+ points based on the better personal statement and CV of the applicant with 39 points? Would be glad to hear some other opinions on this topic because i can't seem to figure out how anybody with 38 or 39 points can be accepted ? Thank you very much for your feedback
