  1. I also prefer doing it similar to your method - writing the historiography before the conclusion. What I also do while presenting the arguments is using "Some historians argue that …", "According to NAME OF HISTORIAN, the underlying cause of the WW1 was Imperialism" or "A JP Taylor conceded this interpretation and highlighted the struggle for mastery as a major cause of the Great War".
  2. phew, what an exam stress! I feel like I don't know anything and only days left to the exams - not studying enough
  3. are these HL or SL chem questions? I am confused - is it normal that I did not know the answer of either? I take SL Chem.

    Thanks! Good luck on your IAs. I enjoyed the questions.

  6. could you please share your notes with me as well? (I know quite a lot of time has passed since this conversation)
  7. Thank you for these amazing math problems! I do really enjoy solving them. Please post more of the challenging Math problems - they are indeed helpful for the preparation.
  8. You've got to be collaborative and active in the sessions. Active participation would allow you to get the maximum benefit from the Model UN. Enjoy and thrive to learn new things!
  9. As far as my knowledge is concerned, most of the Universities do not have any subject-specific requirement for law. They look at your overall score and HL grades (776, 766).
  10. Hey, I have applied to the University of St Andrews, Master of Arts (Honours) Economics and my application status has been changed from pending decision to outstanding requirements, where a big list of documents are requested. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this application status. Why do they require me to submit all these documents? The documents are as follows: Proof of English language proficiency, Sample of critical writing, CV, Academic transcript, Sample of written work, Confidential supporting documentation, Confidential information relating to disability, Proof of professional qualification(s), Reference, Research proposal, School Profile, Personal Statement, Final academic transcript, Interim academic transcript, Co-tutelle agreement, Covering letter, Evidence of progression, Supporting documentation, Test results (SAT, AP, ACT), Proof of funding, Module syllabus information, Passport and Statement of Purpose. I don't even have enough information about many of these documents. Thank you in advance.
  11. The attachment is the grade boundary for the Chemistry in May 2016. Have a look at it. You can calculate your anticipated grade referring to these grade boundaries. Hope this helps.
  12. Yes, it will. You don't need to meet all the criteria and outcomes in one experience/CAS project.
  13. Both are important, yet I believe there is a more emphasis on the predicted grade as it illustrates your actual grade.
  14. This is the exact same sentence we mentioned in the class the other day. That's I think is because we need a revision on our own. School now distracts us from self-studying and preparing for the exams.
  15. Although I do not take IB Physics, there are some videos on the youtube I can recommend to you. Chris Doner and Mitch Campbell are the two most famous physics teachers in the youtube. For my Chemistry SL class, because of the teacher is not helpful AT ALL, I watch videos on the youtube (mainly MsjChem and Richard Thornley) and read the Study Guide Oxford publication. The exercises there are very useful and doing past papers afterwards help me to be well prepared for the exam. I advise the same for you. Hope this helps!
  16. Hi IBers, I am trying to revise for the subjects as the mocks are near. For the History, I don't really know how should I study wisely. It is all messed up in my mind. Can you please give me some suggestions about revision tactics and being more effective and productive? I have past papers, but I do not know how to study more efficiently. I take Route 2, Peacemaking, peacekeeping—international relations 1918–36; and the chosen topics are Causes, practices and effects of wars & The Cold War. As an option, I take Aspects of the history of Europe and the Middle East. If anyone studies the same/similar topics, I will be very happy if we can make some kind of a study group. Any helps would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Actually, it is not an option for the school to not send the predicted grades - they should do it. It's your future.
  18. I chose the title 1. For me, that was easier to find contradictory arguments analysing the topic from multiple perspectives.
  19. Depending on your level (HL or SL) the attachment shows the grade boundaries for Chemistry in 2016. Hope this helps.
  20. I think this is a very interesting Math IA topic that involves a correlation between two things. And I think you can get a full score from the personal engagement part for this IA. The only thing that I think could have been better is the style of the question. What do you think about this version: "How does Best Picture Award nomination correlate with the Characteristics of the Winners?" And one more thing. How finding whether or not money play a part in choosing a winner will answer your main question? I am just confuse about that part. Please bear this in mind that I am not an expert in this area and my suggestion could be misleading. This is just my personal opinion about the case. Hope this helps.
  21. Hey there, A friend of mine @notyouobviously takes English A: lang & lit and currently works on his Written Task 1. He was wondering if anyone could help him with his Written Task? He basically does something with speech and looks for an idea (because of I don't take this course, I am not very familiar with these things). Could you please give him some ideas about the speech for his Written Task? Any help/suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  22. Chem IA(30% completed), Comp Sci IA (50%), Math IA (90% completed), EE (85% completed), Lang A IA (70% completed), TOK essay (65% completed) and TOK presentation (10%). Because of all these incomplete works (credits to PROCRASTINATION), I cannot study for the mocks.
  23. What ranges of Universities are not possible with 43? Congratulations!
  24. Actually, I also struggle a lot with Computer Science IA more than any other one. Can you please give me some very useful websites or any other supporting material that will ease my work? @Nomenclature My IA is making a Jeopardy Game using Netbeans 8.1 Java code. Something like this: Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  25. Hello, I have currently made some adjustments to my research question for the Extended Essay. It is about Islamic history in the Middle East -- "To what extent today commemoration of the day of Ashura is justified?" In the essay, I evaluated different approaches to the battle of Karbala and the purpose of Hussain (a protagonist of the battle) when he did not pay homage to the new ruler Yazid. I know this is a very unfamous battle, yet people know about the self-flagellation in different Muslim countries, which is related to my topic. Do I need to specify the question?
