  1. Is it important to have sources from educationally reputable sources only? (e.g. .edu, .org, and other research-acceptable sources) or are any generally decent websites acceptable when sourcing our pages in our workbooks?
  2. This sounds like a solid pathway. Additionally, you may want to consider taking Environmental Sciences.
  3. In the United States, there really isn't a major difference. Overseas, it can vary drastically depending on the quality of the program.
  4. art

    I have a similar courseload as you (in the second half of my junior year as well), with English/History/Art HL and Math Studies/Spanish/Physics SL. It's interesting because I'm applying to architecture schools (not too far off from art), so the only courses that I really need are Art, Math, and Physics. If you're focused on art schools and pretty sure that's where you're headed, then I would recommend maybe dropping 1-2 courses to pay special attention to Art and Lit/Lang. I 100% understand your predicament as I'm in a similar one, but in the end IB does look rather nice anywhere you apply for whatever you study. Best of luck!
  5. I have a free period every other day, since I'm taking five 1-period classes, one 1.5-period class, and two 0.5-period classes. Sad but what can you do...
  6. Things like robotics (depending on specifics) and some other clubs that involve some amount of physical skill can also count for Action as well
  7. That's not to say people's values won't vary But I'd definitely be interested to hear more about the IA's specifics (once it's concluded, of course).
  8. Well, the electoral college's vote has detracted a little bit more of my dwindling faith in American miracles. Best case scenario? Trump turns out to be an excellent president, defying all expectations. Worst case scenario?
  9. I can see why it might be difficult after looking at your topic, because you'd simply wind up comparing and contrasting singular pieces of data, such as death tolls, involvement, and economic repercussions. Now, it's up to you to give the historical perspective on each issue, which will solidify your points after those initial comparative paragraphs (which shouldn't be the theme for your essay as a whole, simply an insight into what you'll be discussing later in Part B). So, for example, you may choose to structure it such that you get in the bulk of your information in earlier paragraphs, and then draw conclusions based on Result A in Japan vs Result B in Europe, or you may choose to mix the analysis in with the rest of your data points (which I'd personally recommend over the former). Good luck!
  10. 1. What is your real name? N/A 2. Where are you from? New York 3. How did you find out about IB Survival? By chance 4. What made you register on IB Survival? General interest in finding out how other people cope on a day-to-day basis 5. When did you (approximately) register here? About six months ago 6. What is your favourite IB subject? IB Art Design SL/HL 7. When are you graduating? May 2018 8. What are your plans for university? ARCHITECTURE In the US, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand 9. What are your free-time hobbies? Sleeping whenever possible, eating, TV, movies, exploring New York City 10. If you could change one thing on IB Survival, what would it be? An introduction to this place
