  1. Two graphs are good. If you do any more than two, it's probable that you lack analysis and are just superficially describing things. If it's Microeconomics, maybe try and incorporate inelasticity or externalities - depending on whether or not your topic fits.
  2. The only difference between Econ HL and Econ SL is very basic mathematics equations. You need basic Algebra, and a reasonable understanding of graphs (linear equations). I don't know about Business Management.
  3. I don't think there's a distinction between HL and SL for Econ commentaries. For Maths IA, definitely. Not for Physics or Chemistry though.
  4. Sure I got full marks in mine
  5. Dear friends... Basically it turns out that my original physics ia topic has an immeasurable dependent variable (adding salt to water does not affect its refractive index significantly :'( I tested this out in a preliminary trial), and now I need to quickly find another physics ia topic... I won't explicitly state it because I worry about plagiarism, but basically my Chem EE is about 'x' phenomena, and I can explore this phenomena through a physics aspect by relating it to magnetism and movement. I remember hearing that the IBO does not allow us to "double-dip" EE and IA topics, but I was wondering if it is permitted if the EE and IAs are from different subjects. Thank you.

  7. Hello everibodey. I just wanted to check that we aren't allowed abstracts in Chemistry EEs anymore? I briefly remember a retiring teacher mentioning this, but he may have been referring to the acknowledgements section rather. Thank you, a Chem EE student who has survived.
  8. kw0573 just said that some HL only means certain topics are both for HL and SL, except that they are presented together and not all of it is to be covered by SL students.
  9. Optionally you may self teach yourself from the Math HL haese book. You also need to know which HL option your school will order for you - there is a separate Haese document for that. Search up something like 150 ib textbook database reddit to get the book free online. The haese book itself is insufficient because it should be completed within a year, so search up the syllabus and see what you need.
  10. Can someone tell me what the Canadian standard for French is .-. Please. I need to know what I am going to be up against. Other than immersing myself in French movies etc, what had you already done by the end of IB1?
  11. Stop worrying. For language A, take the language that you are best at. If you have learned Egyptian all your life - take that. If you have learned Arabic all your life - take that. For language B it does not matter whether or not it is your first language. In Australia, for language B I do French and it would not matter if I were French. Simply put, you need to already be better at your language A than at your language B. If you want to study in a western country, English B is preferable because it may be easier for you to gain entry as well as study in English, but you should have studied English before for at least 2 years. However you should take whatever languages you want for A and B as long as you're good at them. I am not saying you have to take English. Take Arabic if it suits you. For ab initio which replaces language b however, you are not allowed to do a language you have already studied before.
  12. I haven't done any real internal assessments yet but as far as I know you need an article to analyse? The new classical model seems to be more useful than the Keynesian model since it is easier to consider multiple factors. You should know this already - we learned this about 10 weeks ago. Check out the Cambridge Economics book (find it free online if you want).
  13. Well you haven't told us which universities you want to get into. Foreign or at home? Take only your first language as Language A. You will not be able to do French A because it's a native-level subject. French will mainly help you if you want to go to a university in Europe, or in particular, France. And French AB initio is only available as SL. English B is preferable if you want to go to a western country.
  14. Yup as Nomenclature said, ab initio is preferable, and do talk to your teacher. B-level subjects are not good for language starting, and to me it seems that you did not do French before, is that right? I did French for the 3 years of highschool before IB1 and it requires building up knowledge. Just to let you know where you might need to be at, before IB1 I understood the past tense, imperfect and future simple quite well. I've found that these three are foundations for some new tenses as you literally mix and match and IB1 so far was quite easy-going. Most of the time we merely learn about informal and formal text-structures, for example a journal entry, letter to an official etc. Our teacher also speaks in French but at least half of the time it is understandable. It's our responsibility to immerse ourselves in French. Edit: It seems to be substantially more difficult for francophone countries. What are you being told to learn in your class?
  15. Okay there is not much else I can say. IB doesn't allow so many HLs because everyone does 3HLs + 3 SLs. You are putting yourself at a disadvantage when you do not need to be, as much as you may love all these subjects. If it's a matter of teachers, you might consider staying in the HL class and doing the SL exam at the end - this also means you will only have to do SL IAs.
