    EE English Sources

    Try google scholar - it works wonders. Archive.org is great for books that can't be found in libraries (eg. niche analyses of a particular author). JSTOR gives 6 free articles a month so that's also worth checking out. Otherwise, check which databases your school subscribes to - mine only subscribes to Britannica and Questia. Also, remember that a source doesn't have to deal with exactly your topic or work - the more knowledge you have, the better! Academic papers and literary journal articles are usually the best. (I'm also doing an English EE and I honestly feel the pain. :*) ) Good luck!

    Are my subject choices good?

    Those subject choices look good. Just be aware that you will probably have to take some sort of test (TOEFL or equivalent) to prove your English proficiency if you don't take English A. (Also I actually recommend keeping Physics, as ITGS will not be a requirement for any courses, and physics is generally considered a "solid" subject)

    getting permission for ib irregular diploma

    I'm sorry that I can't answer your question directly, but have you considered taking one of the three as a seventh subject in the form of an ib certificate, (possibly through self study)? Although this is a lot of work, some students I know of have done this so as to acquire all the necessary qualifications for their chosen field. Good luck!

    Pro-Choice or Pro-Life?

    Personally, I am pro choice because I see the alternative as an even greater moral crime against the unborn child. Abortion - especially when safe, legal, and destigmatised - lets women who become pregnant as result of rape, assault and forced marriage to return to their chosen path in life, allowing them freedom and a chance at happiness. In addition, I am a great believer in the value of human life, so I do not think that the creation of a new person should be taken lightly. Therefore, I see the abortion of an "unwanted" child as mercy on the parent's part. Anyone who has seen the lifelong psychological damage that broken or unhealthy homes does to people, will understand that terminating the pregnancy can be the more favourable alternative, as opposed to a life of abuse and sorrow. When safe, legal abortion, is not an option, many turn to unsafe, illegal alternatives. If they fail, the child and mother are both condemned to a life of misery, and if they both die in the process, two lives have been thrown away. If they succeed, the woman may end up with a distrust of the system that failed to provide her with this service, thus developing less respect for the law in other areas, and becoming more likely to seek extralegal alternatives to her problems. However, I understand that some may be worried that widely available abortion will encourage sleeping around and diminish use of contraceptives. The best way to combat this is full and comprehensive sexual education that will not only impress upon adolescents the necessity of contraceptives and the gravity of unwanted pregnancy and ensuing abortions, but also provide services for these young people. This is just my hastily written two pennies' worth :)

    Subject choices

    If I were you I would take chemistry. In general, it would open more doors to various universities, as chemistry is a more "standard" subject and is therefore usually more likely to help your application. At least, in our school they would push you to take chemistry. However, your higher levels look good!

    MINI extended essay topics?

    Thanks for the tips! I don't think that I'll end up doing a science EE, experiments aren't my favorite thing, but I do enjoy learning about other people's research and facts etc, so I'm enjoying researching my chem mini EE (for now at least, let's see how long that lasts )

    MINI extended essay topics?

    Thank you! I agree completely now I'm going to do "Effect of CFC12 on the atmosphere" in chemistry for mini EE, and might do something in Econ or literature next year

    MINI extended essay topics?

    Hello everyone, As a year 11 pre-dp student, our school requires a mini-extended essay (2000 words) in a subject of our choice. Any schools out there with the same requirement? And if so, is it allowed/advisable to have the same topic in EE the next year? I'm unsure whether to do two similar ones or a totally different subject for variety and challenge. Thanks in advance
