  1. I was just wondering if someone was able to help me regarding my chem ia for this year because I'm really struggling and the teacher wants them in!! So basically, we began with him giving us different methods that we could choose from, and I chose "determining the total calcium and magnesium ion concentration of Milk" and I've found this for five types of milk, using titration. How could I use the information that I have to make this into an investigation, i.e.. "How does x affect/determine y?" Please help me, I am really struggling and this is taking up so much time that I could be using on all my other IAs!!
  2. So I have just handed in my first 2000 word draft of my EE to finish off the year, and my teacher has said that I'm going strongly, all is good, I'm sitting on an A-B level so far. This was encouraging, until I read several examiner comments online saying that commonly done, overanalysed, dystopian books are not so likely to score highly, and supervisors should encourage their students to choose newer works to study. Heres the thing; I'm doing Brave New World, which is SUPER over analysed. It is my favourite book ever, I have so much to talk about, and I haven't gone and read any other essays or analysis just in case what they've said influences my analysis and evidence, because I want to be original and do this myself, but is it true that I may not score highly? Should I change my book? I'm not under any pressure right now, I've got 8 weeks of summer holidays and not much to do, so I will definitely have, at the very least, 30 hours invested in my EE. If I do choose to change, what types of books should I look into (new? old? plays? poetry?)? Or should I stick with Brave New World and aim to get a good score there? I am literally freaking out about this so please reply haha Thank you
  3. Hello everybody I haven't decided on a thesis or anything for my essay, but I was wondering if I am allowed to compare the society of today to a few aspects of the book I am planning on doing: Brave New World? So, something like, how does _______ parallel to modern society? .....but better haha All the essays I have read as examples only focus on the aspect and its significance within the book, but I feel like Brave New World discusses themes that are immensely relevant to today.... am I allowed to explore this in my essay? Thank you very much
  4. Hey there, I was wondering if anyone was keen to help me review some of the work that I have done for my WIT and EE maybe? I'm not sure, am I allowed to do that? Just send some work to you, you tell me if I'm totally going on the completely wrong track or if I'm going pretty okay? Also, is there a risk that if I do this, it will show up when they check my work with turnitin? Or will anyone plagiarise my work...? Thank you
  5. Hey Everyone! I just have a simple question (hopefully)... What are the grade boundaries for TOK for the new syllabus? Both for the presentation and for the essay? Also, I got a 7 out of 10 in my first attempt at the TOK presentation (had it on a Friday and my prelims from Monday to Thursday so it held no priority therefore I invested no time ). I was wondering, should I do a second attempt (our school allows a "practice" but if you do well then they don't make you do it again)? I am aiming to get my 3 points for TOK and EE because I want a good score by the end of this, BUT I am not sure if I can completely put my faith in getting an A for my EE... So basically what I am asking is for the grade boundaries, and if anyone thinks I can still get an A in TOK having only gotten 7 in my presentation, or do you think I should resit and invest more time in the presentation? Thank you

  7. I see that none replied but I have to ask, did you change to theatre in the end? and How did it go? I wish to do the same thing
  8. So I wish to take two subjects in the Arts (Theatre and Film) but apparently I can't take two arts subjects? Also, do I need to do examinations for either of these subjects? Apparently I don't for Theatre but I'm not sure for film. Also, I will be doing the Film course online. I am asking because I am planning on moving to a new school next year for my second year of IB, and the school told me that my subjects will be quite difficult to catch up (Physics HL, chem SL, bio HL, english HL and spanish SL, maths SL) BUT possible if I am willing to put in a lot more work! However... -English we are doing different books so I will just need to suck it up and study theirs. -Maths is maths whatever school I go to. I have the textbook so I am all good. -I love biology so there is no way, no matter if they have studied everything that I haven't already, I am not dropping it. -I know another european language so spanish is not that hard for me so I'll be okay. CHEM AND PHYSICS THOUGH. I have no idea what was going through my head when I chose them! I never liked either and I just thought that maybe I will want a shot to go to medical school. WHYYYYY I suck so bad at them and I hate them so much that I literally have no motivation. So, is it possible to swap subjects after my first year? I literally am the biggest theatre geek out and at my previous school I was part of every film club out and have studied the history and stuff about angles and all that, so I will try SO HARD if I am able to do film and theatre. I love them so much, I have no clue why I didn't take them. Silly me. I just thought they wouldn't get me anywhere but honestly I just wish I stuck to what I loved Anyways, is it okay to swap two subjects if the original two I suck at, and the next two I love and will literally quit sleep to catch up and do??? (I'm like serious, I take like four different drama classes a week, theatre is my baby). I am pretty ahead in Bio so I am fully serious when I say that I will study the crap out of dat Bio textbook and do my exams in May if I have to (in the country I am in, the exams are in november). Like, for reals. Then I'd have more time for my film and theatre catch up as I wouldn't have any more Bio to do. And my other question is, can I take two arts subjects? I will literally cry and beg and beg and beg if there is any slight chance that I can. Thank you!
  9. Thank you so much, the IB coordinator just said that as long as I am willing to put the work in (and I so really truly am) I will be able to catch up. So is it possible to take two arts subjects? Will it be possible to drop my two sciences?

  11. Hey guys! So, for my IOP I'm doing Into The Forest by Jean Hegland and I'm looking at Nell's dreams. I've got EVERYTHING that i have to say, I'm prepared with all my points and evidence and quotes and everything, BUT..... I have no Idea how to present it. The thing is that I love being creative, and I am not as smart as I am creative, so I really want to pull off something fun an entertaining that will make my analysis more lighthearted and fun, but I just have no idea what to do!! My first idea was dressing up as a gypsy with a crystal ball and tarot cards and analysing the quotes in the book about her dreams but apparently I'm not allowed to as there is no gypsy in into the forest so I wouldn't really have any evidence for wanting to present it that way... but if it makes any difference to anyone, I'm going to use Freud's analysis of dreams to analyse Nell's dreams, so I guess I could be Freud?? So I was just wondering if some of you could tell me what creative stuff you did for yours, as I'm struggling to find a good idea!
  12. Heeeyyy So, I went to the mall and volunteered to collect money for a charity for one hour. This is one of my first service hours (I've already way exceeded the action and creativity hours so lol, need my service!!!) but I have no idea how to write a service reflection on something like this, as literally all I did was stood and smiled at people, then thanked them when they gave me money... What do I need to cover in a service reflection? What should I talk about/focus on? Thanks!!!
  13. Hey, so another thing I don't know... I'm doing my extended essay on Brave New World (english), but so far I don't have a question or literally anything, but I have the holidays coming up and I have no idea where to start? Like, I'm planning to actually read the book and then analyse it, but then what? Also, what should I include in my essay, what points do I need to make and what do I need to write about (not topic/book wise, but like, Introduction, body paragraphs, conclusion... is there anything besides that and the abstract and bibliography??) and what should I stay away from doing? Also, I understand It has to be formal, but will a bit of humour impact on my grade, or can I be more lighthearted about it? And what techniques have you guys done in order to write a successful extended essay, and do you think I'll be able to finish it in three weeks? I do have longer but I really just pan to sit down and just do everything these holidays so I don't have to worry about anything later on in the course or next year... Thank you!
  14. Hey, okay so we had our last TOK class for before the holidays last week, and we were told that we needed to write the speech for next term. Cool. I have no idea what to do. I am pretty okay with finding a topic as I could just go to a news website and pick a thing that is interesting and make a knowledge question, right? But what I need to know most is what I am actually supposed to do. It is difficult as at my school we only have one TOK class a week, and in this time we mostly just look at paintings and things and analyse them or something, which is helpful but we haven't exactly gone over anything we need to do speech wise.... So it would be absolutely fab if someone could send me a list of what I am meant to include in my TOK speech, what things I should avoid doing in my TOK speech (like, tips, not topics), and is there any format I need to follow, or certain way that I am meant to present it? Can I have power point or notes, or what? And (not sure if I am allowed to ask...?) but are there any topics/cases/things I should stay away from doing? Like, is prostitution not a good topic, or ethics of something, or murder, or anything, just what should I stay away from? Thank you so much
