  1. Yes. Generally, IB is open about the formats you can do for your WA, but I think they also mention doing interviews as an example of such formats.
  2. Sorry for the very late reply! Remembering from what my peers who applied at U of T had, I think you have a good chance at U of T. As an aside, downtown Toronto can be quite expensive but you never get bored
  3. I think you could change the topic slightly, so as to make it more analytical. Personally, I feel like religion as a factor in the formation of the Taliban is too broad for a 4000 word essay. Was their another factor related to the rise of the Taliban that you were able to find some information on while researching?
  4. Are you a diploma student? If so, there may be issues about diploma requirements. If not and are just a certificate candidate, then the IB has no issue with it. Though, your school might, so do check with your counselor first.
  5. Don't risk it. IB tends to be very thorough with their checking, and you can count on them loading that same essay online and checking for similarities. If you get caught cheating by the IB in any way, you're going to fail the diploma program. Whether or not your classmates get penalized is up to them.
  6. You have a pretty good chance for UBC, especially if you can weave in what you learned from your extracurriculars in that essay portion of the application. I think your grades aren't too bad to apply to UBC.
  7. History EEs cannot be on events that occurred in past ten years. That's the only limit.
  8. Actually, you do have to wait until you officially start the first IB school year (which starts from the first day of classes usually). You can start on an activity in advance, if you wish to do so, but the recording of hours can begin at the official start of the year.
  9. Please refrain from reviving old topics, thank you.
  10. Is there a "marker" or supervisor mentioned in the course? If so, you could just have them sign your CAS hours. Otherwise, you'd need to get a certificate (that lists the hours preferably) for the course.
  11. It is the official schedule for next year. Ours looked very similar to this one.
  12. Well, they're all going to be beneficial since knowing multiple languages is a moot point for any job application. Unless you want to study abroad where one of the languages you mentioned is the primary language used or the language of instruction at the university, any one of them is fine. Though AB Initio won't bring you to the level that you can university subjects in that language.
  13. It's only worth a remark for an exam if you're 1-2 points away, so I'd say go for it as you a decent chance. It does cost money, but ask your school for what they're going to charge you for sending it off to IB.
  14. It really depends from university to university.... Universities can see that whether or not you've done retakes, how many times you did them, and what was your mark in each one. If you retake one subject, I'm not sure why they'd look at it as you redid all of IB. Again, every university, even different programs/departments at the same university, look at retakes differently. Some don't reconsider you for applications if you retook a subject, some take a average, some just take the most recent mark or some just take the highest. Your best bet would be to check the websites of the universities/programs/departments you are interested in and see their policy on retakes.
  15. Any university that recognizes IB...it's not just Australia...?
