  1. OP I think you are highly mistaken about the main thing...Canada does NOT care about IB (some U.S. schools care, however). I'm in Canada and I take IB, and all universities I apply to in Canada will only take my Ontario percentage. Some universities (i.e. UBC) will also accept the IB grade, but other schools (i.e. U of T) don't care about IB at all, let alone HL or SL.
  2. Those 2 extra HLs are most likely certificate courses that doesn't count in final DP points.
  3. I definitely recommend diving into some addictive German entertainment sources, such as Downfall parodies. Of course, the subtitles are completely off (and that's the whole point), but while I was watching it for 2 months straight (procrastination at its best) I definitely picked up a lot of German phrases and listening to German basically all day really helps you. Memes and internet can be pretty useful in learning languages because ultimately it's all about the culture. I don't even take German but I can speak a bit now lol thanks to those parodies
  4. Yeah that KQ is good, it's generic. Not sure whether it correctly conveys your RLS though. Maybe use "emotions" instead of "reason"?
  5. By school do you mean high schools or universities?
  6. Those words are not as explicit but still also quite AOK specific. Try more generic words; what I normally do is write up a bunch of synonyms and pick a completely unrelated AOK (i.e. mathematics) and see if each of those words make sense in that context as well. Hope it helps!
  7. All other subjects have their own forums or at least sub-forums, but haven't found any for Global politics. Any GP students here? I'm going to be self studying it for my last year, will be great if I can find some cohorts
  8. To be honest everyone in my school wrote the program first then documented. We made up everything in Record of Tasks form lol
  9. Are you in year 1 or 2? If you're in year 1 that's not even a problem.
  10. I ain't a TOK expert but one thing I'm gonna say is that take out "human science" because it makes the question a specific question that is not a KQ (KQs should be addressable in any AOK)
  11. Hi y'all, I'm wondering how the predicted grades work for the EA/ED. I want to apply to at least 1-2 schools for non-restrictive Early Action, but my grades 9-11 has been pretty bad, but I've been improving every year so I have to include my grade 12 grades somehow to my applications. So my question is: - When do PGs become available? Can they be sent by Nov. 1st? (the EA deadline) My GC said that they can submit a temporary PG by Nov 1 and submit an official fall PG in mid-November, but if that's the case, are the unis gonna care much if the initial one is bad? I moved school for grade 12 (Ik it sucks, I kinda had to) and I don't know how much the teachers will get to know me for the first 2 months.
  12. I'm starting my extended essay and I want to do something about chemistry (but not biochem, since I don't take biology) or physics For chem, I came up with 2 possible topics: Determining acidity levels of different fruits (or same fruits produced in different places) Verifying “real fruit” statements on juices by analyzing both the juice and the fruit they’re claiming to use For physics, I came up with 3 topics: How does the injection of HHO in the mechanical engine improve its efficiency? Hydrostatic pressure in different heights from the ground Concentration vs refraction Are these doable? I'm in first year for both courses and will take HL next year, but I don't feel like I've learned much so far. I'm leaning more towards chem (more for a teacher-hunting purpose), but I'll have to do physics if those topics are undoable. Thank you
  13. I know someone has done their extended essay on internet security. I was also thinking about doing a compsci EE (but probably won't), one of the topics I came across was "Analyzing the efficiencies of different algorithms performing the same task". I hope that helps.
  14. I'm starting my computer science SL dossier soon and not sure what I want to school's computer science quality is super low so all we're taught is some java programming, we don't cover databases etc. I love compsci, and I do a lot of programming outside class. I can make animated games and programs. What should I do for my dossier? Someone give me some fun idea
  15. I don't take bio but I've heard bio HL is a lot of "work" (like memorizing stuff rather than understanding). Humanities HL is pretty much the same as SL. If you're aiming for "easier" schedule, take Lang/lit HL.
