  1. Please don't respond to old topics. Locking
  2. Check with each institution as it varies on some level at each place. The UC system may be standard, but I don't know
  3. please don't reply to old topics. Locking.
  4. No. Citations and main titles never count. Subtitles, however, do count (not that you will likely have them in a 400-word responce).
  5. Basically, there isn't much preparation that can be done before the 15 mins. It's best to have some sort of plan of how you are going to describe the picture. EX: background, then foreground or left to right. (That way it sounds more organized than randomly mentioning parts of the picture.) It also doesn't hurt to know a few buzz words/phrases that relate to your topics. It's supposed to feel somewhat like a natural conversation, so don't over think the delivery. Best of luck!
  6. in a general sense, yes.
  7. I played video games during IB but I had to severely reduce the number of hours. Typically I didn't spend more than a couple hours on the weekend.
  8. You have to comply with any internal deadlines. There is nothing according to IB that prevents you from working on them over the summer, but your school may have different rules. Your best bet is to probably talk to your coordinator (and possibly ask for an extension).
  9. Watching the rain falling down in May
  10. If I remember right from last year, they weren't on the exam. Or if they were, they were numbers that were easy enough to do by hand.
  11. You can't, but the numbers are generally nice. If you can do basic math skills by hand, you should be good.

  15. I think they are. It's just you run the risk of the edges being cut off a bit. In all honestly, I don't think writing outside the boxes will effect anything.
