  1. Yes! It is possible, but if you are applying to something related to Accounting (?), you may need HL. Please refer to the website from HKU with details. For any questions about universities in HK, you all can message me if you have any inquiries. I have offers from the 5 universities (CUHK, HKU, HKUST, Poly U, City U) surprisingly. I will be solving most of your questions down below if I am able to answer it. My offers were pretty low due to my good interview performance I guess.... My HKU offers were pretty low, I have received in total 2 offers from HKU, which are 32 and 35. CUHK offered me an interview, I went and got an offer which only needed me to get 35. HKUST did a visual interview from the faculty of Business and Economics, they gave me an offer of 35 too. I have applied most of the applications to business school. If I have received two offers from HKU and HKUST, I will recommend HKUST more than HKU; however, I have never taken any classes related to business. A lot of my friends have mentioned that HKUST Business > HKU Business, which I believe that it is true due to HKUST's advance in ranking in Business, while HKU had been dropping recently in QS ranking. Not for me, I did not submit my ACT scores and SAT subject tests score.
  2. For HL Biology, persistence is the key in getting a high grade. Biology has a lot and a lot of things being covered, so you may need to revise bits by bits. I would highly recommend taking notes, so before IB exams, you can reread it and still remember the content.
  3. You should calm down. Maybe your mum has a higher standard, but it really depends on how you view your exam. If you are too nervous, it may affect your grade as a result, so it is essential that you must learn how to calm down. For language, as kw0573 said, writing must have a clear introduction and conclusion with detailed points in between. Make sure you are clear with your points that you would like to express in your writing, I will highly recommend a draft structure before you start writing in your exam, like laying out the points that you want to write about. Good luck with your exam.
  4. I would definitely request for a remark for Biology HL, it's so close to a 7. For other subjects, Chem and Econ are also possible within the 2% range. To answer your other questions: 1. Written assessment can also be remarked. 2. If you get over 80.0%, you will get a 7.
  5. I am not really sure because it depends on the subject that you are getting in.
  6. So far, I have never heard of U of T revoking their offers unless you dropped really bad. If you have maintained your grade with a 32, it should be fine.
  7. You can email it to HKU with your application number. For me, I think HKU received my results from IBO and my school without me sending to them.
  8. If you are one point higher and got your higher grade, will your marks change out of the 3 marks? If not, it's not really worth it to get your EE resubmitted. If it raises your overall point, why not trying?
  9. There are a LOT of countries which recognise IB so... http://www.ibo.org/university-admission/recognition-of-the-ib-diploma-by-countries-and-universities/country-recognition-statements/
  10. What do you mean by IB course students cannot get in any uni?
  11. My school does, though I did not take it, I heard that it is fun studying Global Politics.
  12. The website should have the grades for each papers and marked coursework.
  13. It may affect a bit, but it won't have a lot of effect if you gained a higher grade in your retake.
  14. If it is 2 points under the next boundary, it is possible to get a higher grade through remark though it won't change the 3 marks too much. You got a 32, which is not bad at all and can get into a lot of colleges, so there's still hope, do not ever give up so easily!
  15. It's not easy to get 8 points higher, usually it is recommended to get remarked if it is 1-2 points away from the higher grade.
