  1. What is the difference between this: There is very good knowledge and understanding, demonstrated by careful interpretation supported by wellchosen references to the poem. And this: There is excellent knowledge and understanding, demonstrated by individual interpretation effectively supported by precise and wellchosen references to the poem. What is the difference between this: There is very good appreciation of the ways in which language, structure, technique and style shape meaning in the poem. And this: There is excellent appreciation of the ways in which language, structure, technique and style shape meaning in the poem. If you do not mention structure, will you be marked down? Suppose the teacher asks you this in the two minutes, does this count? There isn't enough time in some poems to discuss the main techniques PLUS the structure. What is the difference between this: The commentary is clearly structured and the focus is sustained. And this: The commentary is effectively structured, with a clear, purposeful and sustained focus. Really. How do we make our focus purposeful? Discussion How should we discuss the implications of our works? Especially if the works are set in another time and place. E.g. how do we discuss the implications of the Great Gatsby? Do we link the American Dream to the current world even if we live in, say, Asia? There is excellent knowledge and understanding of the content and the implications of the work discussed. What is the difference between this: There are persuasive and independent responses to the discussion questions. And this: Well-informed responses to the discussion questions show a good degree of independent thought. The IOC is in around one day. Thank you
  2. I was thinking about doing a self-taught language too. I hope it is possible, or at least doing a language outside of school with a native speaker.
  3. What are the complete list of languages that IB has written exams for? The Subject Centre on ManageBac lists more than the handbook I read, it seems (I could be wrong). I can never actually find the complete list. You could theoretically do one of these languages by yourself (outside of school with a native speaker) and then take the exam, right? Apparently, some people have done Language B self-taught. The language I’m thinking of doing may be not be offered but a similar language is so I was wondering. I don’t think it’s on Pamoja either.
  4. Not really. I just wanted to know if I could do my IA in an option we are not doing in class in Biology and if I can do my IA based on SL content even though I am a HL Biology student.
  5. Thanks but I want to do Literature at HL so I will stick with English Lit.
  6. Many websites are saying that high school students should have LinkedIn. Would LinkedIn be useful for someone applying to undergraduate Medicine in Australia? If it is useful or you have done it, do you have any tips?
  7. Also, does anybody have the list of languages available as language As? In fact, what does self-taught Literature entail? Do you need a tutor or do you teach yourself? I probably will not do a self-taught language A but it's nice to know.
  8. I think that you're right. I will probably just stick to my country. Oh, well.
  9. OK. I asked because I need many resources for my History IA but I may just have to use Book Depository.
  10. So you mean that for all our subjects, we can do topics that we are not doing for our IA as long as they are mentioned in the syllabus?
  11. Just wondering if it is legal to write a story about the life of an IB student? Is it legal to mention CAS, IB, TOK and other parts of the syllabus in a story? I don't want to plagiarise anything or infringe on copyright. I just want to know if I can write a story about the daily experiences of someone in IB and kind of mention parts of the syllabus (e.g. that organic chem test was really hard or do you remember the factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis). Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
  12. If so, can I do it in an option we are not studying in class? Also, must my IA be from the HL topics since I am doing HL Biology? Thanks.
  13. How to read online academic books for free legally? EBSCO and JSTOR offer snippets but not the whole thing.
