  1. If it's convenient for you, you will probably get a better (and faster) answer if you talk to someone at your old school. They will most likely either know the answer or have access to someone that knows the answer. Cheers, IB_taking_over
  2. I don't believe there is a set number for any of these. I would imagine at least 10 sources would be sufficient, but it's ultimately the quality over the quantity. 3 reasons is generally a good number, but again you can add more if you see fit. You want enough that you've adequately defended your thesis but few enough so that you can be in-depth and show more than just summary.
  3. In this section (exam discussion). Feel free to start a topic if you don’t see one for the subject you want to talk about.
  4. https://www.marxists.org/subject/china/index.htm might have some relevant stuff. I haven't really looked at the China materials, but they seem to have a decent sized collection.
  5. As per the rules, we cannot make questions for you. But I will suggest some things to look at. Once you come up with a question, we can help you refine it. Bay of Pigs Relations with the USSR Methods of revolution (is he a communist) Sucess of economic policies Sucess of social policies Changes in the roles of women Education reform Basically, find something about Castro that interests you and make up an analytical question and you should be in good shape.
  6. You should be fine as it's a not an uncommon mistake.

    HL Paper 3

    Here's a link to the review stuff I made for the May 2016 exams on the interwar years. I don't know exactly how much of the content focus changed between the old exams and the current ones, but the history should still be accurate. https://sites.google.com/site/ibhistoryofeuropepaper3/interwar-years-conflict-and-cooperation-1919-1939
  8. You're in the states right? If so, a good number of colleges offer intensive summer language programs/classes. (Meaning they cover a year's worth of stuff in roughly 8 weeks.) You might be able to learn Spanish over the summer in order to be able to do SL in the fall at your new school.
  9. Ideally, you should know enough content to cover at least three topics (6 questions). It's risky to just know two topics (4 questions) as you never know what they are going to ask. If you only know 2, you don't give yourself any options. You're kind of suck with whatever you get.
  10. If it's any consolation, I got a 12/20 on my math IA and got a 6. So it's doable, there's just not a lot of room for error on the exams
  11. If I remember right, you color in the box with a pencil. But the proctor (or the exam itself) should indicate the correct way to use the bubble sheet.
  12. Paper 1 is a commentary. There are two options - poetry and prose. You pick one and write a commentary for two hours. Paper 2 is an essay based on a prompt. You get three (I think) choices in each category. The prompts ask you to base your essay on the works you read in class. At my school we read four plays for paper 2 - I don't know if there's a standard amount for this or not.
  13. This is the Discussion Timetable NOT the exam schedule. Exam schedule can be found 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. Three IBSurvival guidelines: 1. 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!
