    Difficult Teachers

    There's something completely wrong with the teacher. I hate to say this, but complain to the coordinator. You have had the talk with the teacher, and obviously it is not your fault and you have tried everything you could possibly do! Before that ,you could try to ask him to go through a 7-level paper 1/2 response in class and make him underline important factors and what makes it a 7.

    Hey! So, I am doing some stoichiometry, but I realized that he was using L, whereas in IB, we use dm^3. In the video linked, he converts the amount using a conversion factor, Would this step change, since we are using dm^3, or do I basically just do what he is doing (except for using L)? - It is around (5:00 he does the conversion)

    **IMPORTANT** Is this book worth it?

    Hey! I want to buy the new book (the green one, I already have the old, blue version) hoping that I would understand math somehow better. To me, it seems good in terms of explanation and exam-like-practice problems. But do you guys recommend it or any previous experiences with it? Does it fit with the May Exams 2016?

    Hey! I was wondering what people were tested in: we were tested in the specimen papers! (for chemistry HL mocks 2016 prep for may exams 2016)

    2016? Paper 3? Experiments?

    Hello! So I have my exams in May 2016. We were just recently informed that the new syllabus is going to have question in paper 3 ( that have nothing to do with the option chosen) based on the lab experiments we did. I am scared of this, and I would like to know if there is a past paper on this (recently new) so I have an understanding of how they look like.

    What stylistic device is this?

    No, I think it is a juxtaposition, but I am not sure..

    What stylistic device is this?

    See I was thinking that it definitely wasn't a paradox, because it seems to be true for both statements in the sentence. Hm....

    What stylistic device is this?

    Heeyyy y'all! I came across this sentence: He was there for you, yet at the same time he was inaccessibleand was wondering what stylistic device that was! Now it is not an oxymoron, as far as I know? or is it? Is it a juxtaposition? or something else I can't think of?

    Concern about passing

    Well, at my school you have to have 24 points in order to continue IB2. So for me, I know that I have failed Chem HL, that won't matter if I get 24 points. (if you do well in the others).

    Minimum CAS hours in IB1?

    The IB doesn't go by hours anymore. Lovelife: I am pretty sure you are doing fine with CAS. For us, we must have at least 3 activities completely done and reflected for this year. :-) Interesting Well, then my advise was pretty much useless. Anyhow, I think your coordinator would tell you if you need to do more - at least that's what mine would do. Noticeably Absent, the IB still does go by hours. As of the latest CAS guide released by the IBO, we need to fulfil 150 hours by the end of the programme. It's true though that there is LESS emphasis on how it should be divided (Ideally, it would be 50, 50, 50, but it can now be 60, 50, 40) and about counting hours (since there's now eight outcomes that need to be fulfilled and there's more emphasis on reflections). But Sofia was correct, the minimum requirement is 150 hours total. The school might have internal deadlines on whether how many hours need to be completed by the end of IB1. Not necessarily. Yes, the IB is still built on the foundation of 150 hours, but what is more favored now is your fulfill of the 8 learning outcomes. They changed it, because they want to put emphasis on how you develop throughout your CAS, and not so much anymore how many hours of CAS you do. Therefore, without the 150 hours as a boundary, they have set that they want to see 6 activities, and 2 larger projects over the 2 years. You are right with the learning outcomes thing. But regarding the projects, I'm pretty sure the only want one project (that is, an activity that combines two or more of the CAS components and lasts for three months at least), as of the guide. Maybe your school has its own rules to make sure that you have at least one valid project, but the IB only needs one actually, as of the guide. Okay. But yes, our school requires 1-2 larger projects (preferably 2 - they want everyone to do 2).
