  1. I think you are right. The key to fluency is to have 1-and-1 contact with a teacher. I’ll try and find a course. Thanks.
  2. I have watched those parodies too. To be honest, I mostly watch YouTube for MSJChem and Alex Lee’s IB Biology channel. The parodies are useful in their way (and appear to be an IB rite of passage). They help to acquire vocabulary and when one watches it for two months, as you have, they will pick up the grammatical structures. Danke.
  3. Thanks. Also what does the guide (same website) mean when it tells us to show how focusing on a particular AoK or WoK will help us to answer our knowledge question? How can we do that?
  4. The TOK presentation guide on TOK Mastery, which our TOK teacher recommended to us, has suggested minutes for each slide assuming that the presentation is presented by a pair. Would the times be the same if one were to present alone?
  5. Hello, I thought the University of Sydney did not offer undergraduate Medicine. Am I misinformed?
  6. For courses like Medicine and Dentistry there is an interview and your UMAT score also counts. Letters of recommendation and stuff like that is not part of the application process. I suppose in your interview you could talk about your extra-curriculars but I was reading somewhere on the Internet where an IB student said (and I don't know if they were joking or not) that universities (globally) apparently ask you if you only did your extra-curriculars because of CAS.
  7. Thank you so much. So essentially I need to immerse myself more in German culture and the book will definitely be helpful? I have changed my phone's language to German; it has clearly helped.
  8. Thank you. So we have to address engagement in our essays as well and the Reflections only have to address engagement? Our teacher said that it had to address approaches to learning and decision-making as well.
  9. First, how does one achieve fluency in German? We are almost at the end of the first year of the IBDP and just about no one in the class feels confident about any of the final exams or internal assessments. I know people will say to use platforms like Memrise or Duolingo but is there another way? Second, we don't use the Deutsch im Einsatz textbook? Should I buy this? There doesn't seem to be a German B Oxford study guide. For people who did get 7s in German B SL, how did you do it? Apparently you need 95% in German to get a 7, unlike 65% in History.
  10. Our cohort is submitting our Extended Essays in 2018 but the new Reflection session confuses me. We have to address many criteria in only 500 words and we have to reflect on three reflection sessions. How is this possible? Do we have to address every criterion in each of our the three reflection sessions or can we spread the criteria across the three? If we divide the 500 words equally, then we have around 166 words for each reflection. Does anybody have any advice that is NOT cheating or against guidelines? If there are any IB teachers reading this, what do you think?
