  1. Hey thanks for the reply!! really appreciate it! Very reassuring to hear it is recognised by the IB!! Thanks for the tip btw on the fact checker - it's a great source!! Just out of interest what exactly was your question? If you know of any good sources I could use, that'd be extremely helpful!! Anyway thanks again, I fell a lot better about it now. Good luck with your IB!! I know as much as you do - it's hard as hell!!
  2. I never took Geography but Business is by far my favorite subject. It's something that has always just come naturally for me and I love the feeling of being a real-world-problem solver of the exam questions. Also if you took it for GCSE, it's a similar course and could take some of the workloads off of the packed course of IB!!
  3. It's impossible to say really. Different topics are harder for different people. Are you taking the course over 3 years? Cuz for me, taking it in 2 has been the hardest part due to the workload. For you though, should be easy I guess. I do an hour or more of homework every day and I still end up with 3's in most of my end of topic subjects and a 3 at the end of the year. Needless to say, I'm jealous of u getting 7's with no homework!! Good luck!!
  4. Ib is a relentless and unforgiving course. I think it's extremely beneficial to revise along the way, but be careful of burning yourself out too fast. Take it easy at first and only revise topics you have trouble with. Set limits to your amount of time revising!! I commend your effort and planning though - it's a good sign you're the right kinda student for IB.
  5. Hi guys, I need some help. I had to switch from Physics to Business for my extended essay and I didn't have time to read the whole Guide before deciding on a subject. I settled on the question of To what extent is Football Boot (soccer cleat) Marketing Ethical? My teacher thought it would be good and I have found many sources and written a lot so far. However, I'm starting to become unsettled by some of the descriptions in the Business section of the 2018 Extended essay guide. They state that: 1) "The EE title must be stated in the form of a question that promotes the application of the higher order skills of analysis, evaluation and synthesis, rather than encouraging a descriptive essay." I feel I am analysing, however at times it's hard to use business devices to do so... 2) "Students should remember that a business management essay must be written in an objective style without personal bias. Conclusions should be derived from the evidence and not based on any preconceptions of the student." I am using different examples of unethical marketing being sanctions to argue that football boot marketing should be punished, however, at the end of the day, it's a personal opinion or bias as to whether or not it's ethical or not... My teacher is a very experienced IB Business Teacher, so I trust her and her judgment, but I do wanna be extra careful as this is a very important part of the IB. All help appreciated. Many thanks!!
