  1. To those who scored a 7 in IB English A Literature (SL or HL), please answer the following questions:- 1) Do you usually attempt the prose or the poetry? 2) For how long do you plan the essay (reading + annotations)? 3) What aspects of the extract do you annotate (literary devices, key sentences etc.)? 4) What points does your introduction include? 5) How do you structure the essay (linear, theme based etc.) 6) How long is your essay? 7) What points does your conclusion include? 8) How do you recommend practicing/studying? 9) How many practice essays did you do, especially during the few months prior to the final exam? If you have any tips, please share them too. Thank you very much.
  2. Do any of you have the November 2015, May 2014 or November 2014 extended essay reports for Group 1 English? Also, do you have the May 2013 or November 2013 subject reports for English A Literature? To those of you who have completed the IB Diploma program and have achieved an A in English Group 1 Extended Essay or a 7 in English A Literature, would it be possible for you to give some tips on how to achieve a high grade? It would be great if you could share a copy of your EE or World Lit Essay. Thank you so much, I am sure these will benefit many of us!
  3. Can someone please explain to me the TOK presentation structure that was prepared by Tim Woods (http://www.timwoods.org/2013/09/13/how-to-structure-a-theory-of-knowledge-presentation/)? Also, please clarify some of my doubts:- 1) Should the developments be separated according to AOK's (Ex:-Development 1=Natural sciences, Development 2=Human Sciences, Development 3=History)? 2) Should the claims and counter-claims be general statements or RLS related. For example, should a claim be 'Technology is changing our way of life' (general) or 'Iphone's are changing our way of life'? 3) Should the claims and counter-claims be about two completely different situations or should it be in the form of a for (claim)-against (counter-claim) debate? Those who have completed their presentations, please PM me your PPT's so I can use them as samples to work on mine. That would be really valuable. Thank you so much for all your help and support!
  4. Do you have may 2014, november 2014 or nov 2013 reports for EE? Thanks in advance!
  5. Does anyone have the November 2015 subject reports for English Lit and extended essay report for English A? Thank you so much for your help and support!
  6. Guys I selected my novel for English EE and skimmed it once (so the plot is quite clear) but what is the next step? Should I do a thorough analysis of the work, head on to select a topic and then re-read for points that are linked to the topic? Also, if you have finished IB diploma program, it would be great if you could PM me your EE so I can have a look at some of the expectations (most of the samples provided by IB are very old). Thank you so much for your help and support.
  7. In the extended essay guide and subject reports, it is stated that the research question has to be forward looking. What exactly does this mean?
  8. Guys I really need some help in my world lit essay. So I am analyzing the extent to which a character can be considered a symbol of the modern society. So this means I will be explaining the ways in which this character is a symbol and the ways in which the character is not. Is this allowed?
  9. Guys can you please help me out in my Written Assignment. I feel that I have a good topic in terms of content but the research question does not explicitly refer to any of the following key words: symbols, motifs, themes and role. Is it still safe to proceed with such a topic. I checked a few sample essays that scored a high grade and all of them used at least one of the above words in their essay research question. Since I am focusing on a character, I might not be able to include these key words into my RQ, but I will be able to explicitly refer to them in my essay. Also, is writing an essay about a character accepted or does it have to focus on symbolism and imagery? This is a major character (the antagonist in way) but only comes in the latter half of the novel. Does the world lit essay need a topic that addresses the whole book?
  10. I am doing Hindi B SL. Can someone please explain how the Language B Written Assignment is supposed to be done? I am not so clear about the procedures, especially in selecting the articles. Thank you so much in advance for your help and support.
  11. I have just started IB about a month ago but I still don't understand what is to be done in TOK. Can someone please explain everything related to TOK and what we have to do for the final boards? Also, please give me some tips and tricks to score the 3 additional points. All the help and support is appreciated. Thank you very much in advance for your reply.
