  1. 1. I filled out a form and got a couple teacher recommendations from my 8th-grade teachers to do pre-IB. In order to do IB, you just had to maintain a B average in the pre-IB classes. 2. I was at a public high school. 3. I think I paid a little more than half of the exams fees, so like 800 USD. (The rest was paid by my state's education department.)
  2. Both total wars and civil wars are fair game unless the question specifies the type. For example, last year I remember one of the questions asking about two civil wars.
  3. Russian is the 5th most spoken language Russian is one of the UN official languages Learn more about the Cold War superpower (Writing propaganda for Russian Club)
  4. U.S. universities won't look at IAs unless you send them to them. But don't do that unless they ask for you submit work from your high school stuff.
  5. In terms of question 2: At my school, your could double count hours. I did a lot of set work for a community theatre, so when I counted my hours from that they always went to C and S.
  6. Chances are good you will take them next year. If you were taking them this year you would have registered last fall for them.
  7. That's probably a question best asked to your teacher and/or the administration of your school. At my high school, the student got a 0 on the assignment and further actions could be taken at the discretion of the teacher.
  8. This is the Discussion Timetable NOT the exam schedule. Exam schedule can bef ound here. All the discussion about the exams has to be in the EXAM DISCUSSION forum, not in the subject forums. It is EXTREMELY important that you do not post those topics in any other forum as it will not be possible for us to properly moderate them. Thank you.

The topics you start are invisible until a staff member approves it. Therefore, do not start another topic when you can't see yours. No discussions via PMs before the 24-hour wait is up. Yes, we can check PMs. For more information: Is your post not showing up after you've posted it? 2. General exam inquiries are allowed anytime. Do not discuss any exam question/topic. Do not start a topic whenever you have a general inquiry. First check the Conduct of the Examinations topic to see if it has what you're looking for: Conduct of the Examinations. If it doesn't, then you may ask your question in the following topic: General Exam Inquiries 3. If you feel IBS may distract you during examinations, you may request a temporary suspension. You just have to PM Mahuta or Sandwich the dates. For example: From the 5th to the 7th. For more information on temporary suspension: Exam ban on request Good luck to all of you on your exams!

    12. IB is only two years of your life. IB scores don't matter in the wild after you've completed the program. (It's a repeat, I know. But I truly believe it deserves repeating). 13. Failure is part of life. It is an opportunity for improvement; it does not mean you are any less intelligent.

  11. The
  12. You should be fine. Throughout my IB career, I submitted my share of incorrect title pages. They might grumble about it a bit, but you should be okay.
  13. What counts for CAS is largely based on what your schools says. So, if your teacher said it doesn't then it doesn't.
  14. generally, you don't need to cite where you got the definitions from. They are typically considered common knowledge.
  15. Yes and no. US unis value different parts of the application differently. In theory they look for well rounded individuals, but never being an admissions officers I have no clue what they actually look for. It's basically a crapshoot with college admissions
