  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. Hey Lovelife, I agree with Blackcurrant. Follow those steps, they should help you. You always have the right to complain, especially if you feel that your teacher is preventing you from learning, and others for that matter. When you complain to the school administration, you shouldn't show them your anger and frustration, because it signals to them that you want to sort things out in a civil manner. At the end of the day, the school will always be on the students side, because they want you to succeed. good luck! -theswizzlerbruh
  4. Hello! Are you kidding me? I think bad would be an understatement *grimace*. In order to make your senior year bearable, you should have picked a topic, met with a supervisor, submitted a proposal, and finished your entire extended essay before the end of the summer vacation. I honestly think that not having your EE done on time is a very bad scenario, because if you don't turn one in, or if you don't write it appropriately, you don't get a diploma, and that's basically 2 years of hard work gone down the drain. But all isn't lost though. What you should do immediately, before you return to school, is to find a topic and subject area quickly. Next, tell your IB coordinator that you didn't do anything about the extended essay. Trust me on this one, it will help you. Make up a reason for why you didn't do it yet, and ask the IB coordinator to help you. He or She will have to, because it is the duty of the coordinator to do anything she can to help you get your diploma(as long as he or she doesn't break any IBO rules). Once you have sorted out your topic and all, start writing it up. read the EE guidebook, and adhere to it. don't forget all your other subjects though! You have to Prioritize. If you put enough effort, you will earn at least a C or above, depending on how well you write it. Don't leave it until the last moment, because your chances of getting a good grade will be less than zero. Hope this helps, -theswizzlerbruh just fyi OP, theswizzlerbruh's post is a complete overstatement and please don't let it worry you. I don't know when your EE will be due, but i know that at my school we came back to school after summer in february and our ee was due in july i think. depending on the subject, EE research may take 1-2 weeks but then writing it should just take a weekend for the first complete draft. you're gonna get the diploma and you don't need to stress about that. I do not know a single person who was not finishing their EE the night before it was due. There is no reason to finish the whole thing during the summer holidays. as theswizzlerbruh said, chose a topic asap, but then start researching it. Depending on how long you have until it's due, your ib coordinator cannot care less that you didn't do it. if your ib coordinator is anything like mine, they will just tell you to go off and do it because they have other stuff to deal with. I personally am predicted an A for my EE. Most of my EE was written in a week. then you just keep communicating with your supivisor and keep improving your essay. you can get a good grade by doing it last moment. you can get above a C even if you haven't started yet. you have time so just don't worry about it and get doing it. Hello Ibprincess, I think you're wrong there... I noticed that you guys take your Ib exams in November, since you're in the southern hemisphere. Pardon me if I am wrong, but JuliaIB's profile says that she takes her IB exams in May, just like I do. If that is the case, then our Extended essays can't be due in July, because our IB results will have come out then . My school informs me that we have to turn in our final EE's in December, and they will be sent to the IB sometime in January(I think). The main point is that because you have your exams in November, your schedule is different than those who take the exams in May. And yeah juliaib, I am sorry if I came out a little hard on you, but I want to give you pointers so that you get the highest grade possible at this stage. cheers, -theswizzlerbruh
  5. Yeah, that is pretty dodgy. In that case, your librarian should be able to help you out.
  6. Hello EI! Firstly, I would recommend that you talk to your librarian, like ibprincess said. He or she will be the most helpful in this case. Meanwhile, try to find out what else turnitin found out that might be plagiarism, and try to fix those. If nothing you do changes anything, make sure that you show proof that you actually make the calculations, by showing an example. Whoever grades your EE will know that you truly have done the calculations yourself if you show proof, even if they see that 14% of your paper is seemingly plagiarised. cheers, -theswizzlerbruh

Hope this helps, -theswizzlerbruh Thing is I had a topic in a subject area and my teacher had a stroke so I had to switch to a different subject area with a different topic. Then this summer I moved to another continent and into a different school so... Oh dear, that's pretty unfortunate. In that case, check if your new school teaches any of the two subjects that you picked. If they do, then pick which topic you like best, and ask if you can do your ee on that one to the supervisor. Once done, write it up using the ee guide! cheers -theswizzlerbruh What do you think about doing it for English A and doing a literary EE because I've written literary essays since about the eighth grade and the main source for these EEs is the book or books you're writing the paper on? I think it's easiest at this point since I am taking the subject and I have experience with it and if my supervisor approves the books I have in mind it will be even better since I've previously read both of them. Yeah, I would definitely recommend that you do your EE in English. The only problem is that it has to be thorough and that you should be concise and not stray off topic . However, since you have a good four years of experience in writing essays and you have a good control of your books of choice, then go for it! But make sure that the books you are choosing are books that are appropriate for extended essays, not something like harry potter. good luck! -theswizzlerbruh
  8. 3. what is your strongest subject?

  10. French

    Hey Pippa! I am also taking french B sl, and I can assure you that if you have a good command of the french language, in both reading, writing, and speaking skills, you're basically set to earn a 7! What we basically do, is learn how to write letters, speeches, articles, etc. All you really need to prepare for this class is to know how to speak and write well. That is, learn the conjugations, pronounce particularly difficult words correctly, and the same. I also think that you should make sure that you can write french in a logical, coherent manner. Eg. If you write a speech, all the paragraphs should be able to connect, and make sense. You should also expand your vocabulary in french if it is a little too small. Hope this helps, -theswizzlerbruh

  15. I would honestly live under communism. Before you guys start getting angry at me, hear me out . Take the Indian state of Kerala(I'm not from there btw) as an example. It is mainly an agricultural state, but it has gone farther than any other state in India, in terms of wealth, and equality. there are more women than men there, and education is a desirable circumstance for women, unlike other parts of india(sadly). Everyone is given an equal amount of land to own, and are thus earning the same as everyone else. Even people who worked in my brother's industrial factory are living like kings, even though they have pretty meager jobs. However, people still have equal rights, can use internet, whatever. They aren't hardline communists like North Korea. This has been due to the fact that Kerala was under rule of the CPI(M) or Communist Party of India(Marxist), who believe in equality for all. They have been ruling for more than a decade, and only recently lost the election polls to the BJP(the political party which is ruling india as a whole). As I believe in equality for all and in all forms, I prefer this type of communism. What do you guys think?
