  1. I've already got my whole week planned too! as my exams finish on Wednesday, may 18th(thank god): Wednesday: Produce music(I'm a music producer and unfortunately IB prevented me from doing this hobby for a whole year. I'm stoked to get back to it !) Thursday: Produce more music Friday: Go off to a friend's house and produce music there as well (He has some really nice speakers) Saturday: Watch football and make the final edits to my finished track. Maybe i'll send it off to a record label and see if they want to release it Sunday-Tuesday: I have a senior trip to a beach resort here in Tunisia! I'll debut my track to all of my friends, and party hard with them(I'm also a dj too haha) Sunday(may 28): Graduation and prom on the same day for me !
  2. Hello World! So more than 24 hours have passed since all of the IB english paper 1's have taken place. How did all of you do, and how were the papers in each of the Time Zones? I am in TZ2 and chose the poem !
  3. Hello SNF, It's technically illegal to download exam papers since they belong to the IBO, but you can buy them from the IB store for a pretty cheap price. Otherwise, ask your teacher for some resources because they have the authority to give you all the preparation you need. This is also a good idea because you never know if the questions in the practice papers are legitimate or not. cheers, theswizzlerbruh
  4. Hey ibStudent77, Firstly I think that you should discuss this leniency with the biology department. If your teachers are IB qualified, then they should be grading you according to the IB rubric, and should mark you down if they spot any fallacies. Good teachers usually predict scores so well that the examiner may only remove or add about 1 or 2 points. try and ask your teachers to grade you a bit harsher, so that you know what you must add or remove from your IB work to make it better. cheers, -theswizzlerbruh
  5. i'm in.
  6. IA (HL)

    Hey Daniel! I completely agree with kiwi, if you can shape your investigation around your research question while still sticking to the criteria, you need not worry. Don't prevent yourself from adding a bit of complexity to your IA, especially if you're in math HL and need those 6 points in criterion E. You can do this as long as you explain how you do it with clarity, so that your examiner is not completely bamboozled. If you get any ideas from somewhere else, try and make it your own but cite it properly. Otherwise, you're good to go! cheers, -theswizzlerbruh
  7. IA

    Hello Mariam! Yeah, that topic has been grounded out pretty much. Choose something else that you find interesting! Perhaps modeling something might be cool. You should choose a topic that hasn't really been delved into before; something unique. cheers, -theswizzlerbruh
  8. Hello zee! I think you should go through the math exploration guidebook(ask your teacher for one). It should tell you exactly what is required at your level. In math SL, you are not required to do as much math as is expected in math HL, but you must still make your exploration logical, concise, and easy for any examiner to follow. Cite your sources properly, make your table of contents, and explicitly state the math that you use. That is, outline when you use your math, and make sure that you don't miss out on any steps(this is pretty important for SL people). cheers, -theswizzlerbruh Ack, but the thing is that it's really difficult to find information for either of these topics and I'm finding it hard to well... do my exploration just because of that I really have no idea what the mathematical aspect of Sudoku is, and the handshake problem is too simple for my level. In that case, find another topic that contains many mathematical aspects to it. Brainstorm!

  10. Hello whitney! the only way to do this is to set a personal deadline/goal and set aside all distractions. Put away your phone or ask your parents to hide it for you until you're done, set a stopwatch to the time you want to allot yourself to finish your work, and just do it. You should also reward yourself with treats when you successfully finish something. I personally like chocolate, so when i'm done, I eat some. You should also be true to yourself; If you didn't complete all you wanted to do, then give yourself more time. Make a genuine effort to finish everything on time, and reward yourself accordingly. If you didn't do your homework, then don't reward yourself. hope this helps, -theswizzlerbruh
  11. Hello Ibstudent again I think that is a great idea. You can do that if you think that they will help you in your extended essay. You should also cite any information you glean from them, because the IB might count that as plagiarism. I don't take buisness management, but these are basic rules that you should follow if you want an A. Consult the EE guide for more information if you need to. good luck! -theswizzlerbruh Might not have been clear enough about this, I meant choosing a local company as a topic of research, not as a source for help. Yeah, sure you can do that. if it says that you can do it in the EE guidebook for buisness management, then go ahead. Ask the buisness group for permission though, if you can use them as an example for your EE.
  12. Hey beatriz! Yeah definetly, the more pictures you add that are relevant, the better! Another pro of doing this would be that you can prove that you had atleast done the experiment, if the Ib ever thinks that you might have plagiarised or plugged in false data. You should add captions as well, to show the examiner what purpose the photo serves. The representation o =f qualitative information is also a nice idea. Again, make sure that it is strongly relevant. cheers, -theswizzlerbruh

  14. Lab Report

    Hello IBStudent, I think it should be something like "How is the rate of photosynthesis affected by light intensity in a conducive environment and a polluted environment over a period of one minute?" cheers, -theswizzlerbruh
  15. Lab Report

    Hello Ibstudent77, I think you could do that, but you should not collect too much data, because that's basically the difference between an IA and an extended essay. You could collect enough data but that might mean reducing the variables. However, if you can manage to collect your data and process it so that you can write about 2500-3000 words on it, without writing a full blown EE, I think you may be good to go. However, the part about cigarette smoke is kind of unnerving. I am not sure the IB would like it if you were messing around with stuff that might be injurious to your health. You could try letting off smoke from a burning piece of wood instead, because that would be less likely to give you lung cancer and it could still achieve the same affect. If not, try using incense sticks. They smell good, and can release the same smoke into the air. hope this helps, -theswizzlerbruh Thanks for the reply, so my RQ would look something like "How does light intensity affect the rate of photosynthesis as measured by number of bubbles produced by *name of aquatic plant* in a conducive environment over a duration of one minute, and how does this compare to the rate of photosynthesis in a polluted environment?" Thoughts? The rq is alright. It sounds a little too long though, maybe shorten it a little? Otherwise, it's all good! Wait sorry, you don't take bio? How could you possibly know if 2 independent variables are allowed? Haha biology is still a science. The rules apply in Bio, chemistry, and physics more or less the same. I also know enough biology to know about what you want to do, and IB rules and regulations apply for all of the subjects. Alrighty then, thank you! Anytime:D
