    Math HL Paper 2

    oh man haha in that case you're lucky! I'm TZ2 and we had an entire vector question in section B though it wasn't that difficult to do!

    Math HL Paper 2

    I think that my paper 2 was definitely better! I could answer all the questions pretty well except the goat one lol.

    Math HL paper 1

    I thought it was much easier than the level I had expected based on the mock exams we gave. I knew how to attempt the questions and got a lot of the answers. I'm pretty confident that I'll get 70+ which would be a dream come true anyway definitely not what I expected haha (obviously, there were challenging questions including some I couldn't complete but the day I completely understand the whole paper is never coming so I was happy). I'm just glad it's over

    Biology SL paper 1 and paper 2

    Hi! I think I did that one! It was about meiosis, cloning in human cells and therapeutic cloning right? I thought it was the easiest. Section A was a bit weird though. Yes that one! Same, i thought it was the most doable question. The others were too hard. For the cloning I talked about the Somatic Cell Nucleus transfer.. what did you talk about? Oh um I just outlined the embryonic cell switch thing (like dolly the sheep's) and how the nucleus is taken out from a surrogate cell and another fertilized one is added and stimulated to divide. It wasn't too hard. I feel like I wrote more about meiosis than the 8 marker though

    Psychology Paper 1

    How did you answer the brain imaging tech question? Did you write a lot about how it functions? Hey, did you choose the contrast biomedical and individual treatment for abnormal, and if yes, how did you evaluate on that? Yup I was a bit thrown off by "contrast" at first, but then I realized it just means explain the two and state a few differences. I did the serotonin hypothesis for biological and CBT for individual, linking them to their etiologies. I explained adv. and disadv. and validity of both separately and evaluated their studies. I talked about how they're different because one targets the physiological processes while other targets symptoms though taking an eclectic approach may be best. You?

    Psychology Paper 1

    How did you answer the brain imaging tech question? Did you write a lot about how it functions? No not a lot because I wasn't sure about them. So I basically mentioned how MRIs work magnetically through radioactive probes pertaining to the hydrogen atoms in our body. I mentioned two advantages and disadvantages each and then gave the study and evaluated it. I did the same for fMRI (except the function obviously) and then in the end gave general advantages and disadvantages of BITs. You? Wasn't the command term for that question discuss? :/ Is giving the strengths and limitations required Yeah it was But in year one my teacher scared the sh*t of me, she said we should never never answer that question on section B, because you have to know every single detail how the fMRI or MRI (or whatever you choice) work. Like why it can record blood flow etc. I think so yup because regardless of the command term, our teacher told us that in regard to 22 markers, always evaluate EVERYTHING you can to gain marks in criteria B. So if the question is on BITs, evaluate the technology and studies. If the question's on a specific theory, evaluate the theory and the studies. You'll probably lose 1 or 2 marks in criteria B, nothing to worry about too much, as long as you evaluated your studies well

    Psychology Paper 1

    Hi guys! I'm just so glad it's finally over! For paper 1, some of the questions we did in the mock exams ended up coming so I was really happy! I wasn't expecting evolutionary to come though because it came last year but oh well. The 8 markers were fairly easy. I did BITs and gave HM for MRI and Harris and Fiske for fMRI. I'm pretty happy with that paper. Paper 2, I had abnormal and human relationships. For abnormal, I did treatment, though I wish I could've evaluated better and gave Neale and Paykel's studies. For human relationships, I answered the one on prosocial behavior, giving Whiting and Whiting, and Miller. The evaluation for this one was much better How about you guys?

    Biology Paper 3 (Options)

    I am in SL and I did A and C. It was okay though the data response was a bit weird tbh
  11. Hi guys! Lang lit HL here! I did texts A and B because I didn't really know what to do with the song lol. It was quite confusing at first, but I ended up explaining how perspective matters and in the grand scheme of things, nature overpowers man (whether in a good or bad way).

    Economics HL

    I think that my paper 1 went best! I did numbers 2 and 3. It's usually because our school's really strict so they always made our eco papers hard. This was the easiest paper 1 I've given to date. Paper 2 was okay- I did the questions on the rupee and china and africa trade. I think it was fine. Paper 3 was definitely not what I expected! The past papers I've done are so easy- the change in pattern was a bit weird to me. I did micro and macro (the long run thing in micro took me a while to figure out haha). The macro one was fine but the AD/AS intersection was not at an exact grid point which confused me considering it was only a 1 mark response? For the first time, paper 1 went well and paper 3 was the bottom rung for me. What about you guys?

    How do we answer paper 3?

    Hi! I know that feel haha. I haven't had a lot of practice for paper 3 either (we've done it about three times) but I've scored pretty well each time so here goes: In paper 3, you'll be given a case study and three questions based on it. Make sure that when you study the notes, you memorize the advantages and disadvantages of everything properly. Inductive content analysis is tricky so make sure you know that well, as well as considerations before during and after an interview as well as observation. When you answer it, you first approach the key terms of the question. Suppose the question asks "What is the use of reflexivity in qualitative research?" then you first define reflexivity, explain a little bit about why it should be used, then mention a bit about the case study. Talk about instances where reflexivity could be applied in the study (EXPLAIN EVERY POINT). Mention its advantages. Then write a small paragraph on other methods of establishing credibility and state they can be used with reflexivity. Conclude in two lines mentioning how reflexivity made the study's findings more credible and link it to qualitative research hope that helps you! Just tackle all the questions like this and you should be okay (make sure you study paper 3 properly though)
  14. Hi guys! I just gave this paper a few days ago as well I answered questions 2 and 3. For abuse of monopolies, I answered it in terms of how oligopolies and monopolies both display monopolistic behavior and the solutions I wrote were from the abuse of monopoly section in market failure (legislation and trade liberalization). The second part was pretty easy though For question 3 I related it to the government AND tax multiplier and shifted it from a recessionary gap and from the old potential output to the new one. The second part threw me off a bit but I mentioned a bunch of consequences and drew the Phillip's curve with it. What did y'all do?
