  1. Where do you want to go for university and what are you planning to study? They all have different conversions for IB grades. For example, UBC considers a 76% to be equivalent to a 3 (which the minimum mark they will accept for english). Most programs in Canada will require you to present your english marks so it can be a problem but your other marks are very good so it could even out. If you feel that you would be more successful and get a better grade in the regular stream, you should consider switching. You would know best about the difficulty of classes and what the regular stream teachers are like at your school.
  2. Personally, I feel like your question may be a bit broad. There's enough information that you could do an essay on either migration's effects on economic performance or how the migrants are affected by this.
  3. No. I'm not sure about what you meant by not studying and personal insecurities but my advice is this: There's no point in trying to study the material up ahead if you're still not sure about the math you learned this year or in previous. When you feel a bit more motivated, go through what you've learned throughout MYP and note which concepts gave you trouble. Practice them really well until you're 100% confident in your ability. There are many great tutorials on Youtube/KhanAcademy, and of course, you can ask questions here, if you feel like you need a refresher.
  4. You're going to have to get used to the fact that IB is going to involve more critical thinking rather than the rote memorization you might have been used to in your matric years. Since you say you're not very strong in your subjects, I'd suggest either considering other courses that you're comfortable in or setting aside some extra hours a week to review or skim ahead of the material.
  5. The MYP and DP are not really connected to each other, so there's not going to be any enforcement by the IBO to make a certain subject be offered at the MYP level. If such a policy existed, what would happen to kids who joined the school during the DP program and didn't have the required years for the language because their school didn't offer the language or taught a different one?
  6. I had someone in my year do their EE on Chinese. Someone else did it on Japanese a few years back and in both cases punctuation wasn't included in their word count.
  7. As long as you've checked that the site you got the data off from is reliable, you are allowed to use these sites.
  8. What do you mean by effect of art? Generally, you just need to ensure that if you're using humans as "test subjects" that you got their approval and that won't be harmed. The same applies for animals in that you're not harming them or exposing them to any danger.
  9. There's this: https://www.oriprobe.com/peoplesdaily.shtml But you need to see if your school bought a subscription from them (which is probably unlikely...), so you can try to see if you can access the free trial from them. Doesn't hurt to try, I suppose. Good luck.
  10. For year 1, I suppose the issue might be that you might not have enough time for your EEs and IAs that are assigned over the summer. I took a course over the summer and I was repeatedly told by some that I wouldn't have time for my IB work. It worked out fine for me, but you may want to see the work load and see if you can find the time to make room for the IB work, if the same situation applies to you.
  11. Word doesn't include punctuation as long as it's used properly: "Hi, how are you?" is counted as 4 words in Word. "Hi , how are you ?" is counted as 6 words in Word because of the extra space, making it count the "," and the "?" as separate words. So, make sure you correctly space your words so that your word count is accurate.
  12. Well, you're supposed to look a variety of sources, but ten can be a bit of a stretch, especially for major sources. Use the book you're currently using and try to see if you can potentially bring in other books and cite overlapping information from them. I believe primary sources from a secondary source count as a separate source, but I'm pretty sure there are other sources on Emperor Meiji, if not as comprehensive as your primary book.
  13. Chemistry SL has straightforward calculations for the most part. The hard part is the theoretical aspects where you need understand how and why some reactions proceed and why some elements display certain properties, etc, to succeed in the course.
  14. Nope. You've met the requirements other than giving the exams.
  15. People say to do an EE in english or history because "it's just like the essays you right in school- but longer!" They don't really realize that the EE is a huge time commitment and you actually have to somewhat like your topic since you're poring so much time into it. I agree with @kw0573 about the difficulty in determining the oxidants. From personal experience, I do know that some students reached out to university laboratories and got permission to use their equipment. They weren't penalized for using the equipment since they explained their process thoroughly. If there's such a place nearby, reach out to them and ask them about whether you could conduct your experiment there or if the experiment could be attempted another way. You may even find a new topic in the process. Good luck!
