  1. Fantasy is fine. Just make sure you have a really strong research question and good structure. That's what really matters. All genres are allowed, otherwise. The rest is in the pudding, as they say.
  2. extendedessay

    Too add to what _IB Taking Over_ already said. No, not everything. A lot is common knowledge, yes, but there are times where you want to allow your readers to trace an idea or check the facts -- or that you realize came from your own recent reading and learning and that you want to acknowledge. Some judgement is required here, but when in doubt cite anyway. A lot of this is just "feel". You won't get zapped for not citing general knowledge, if that is what you worried about.
  3. It's best never to leave anything to the last minute. You should ask these questions much sooner.
  4. No. You should adopt a definite text-type that has no connection at all with essay writing. A news article and magazine article may look at first sight like an essay. But it is not. An interview transcription (or record) is not an essay either. Make sure your choice is clearly aligned with one of these. But do not make up your own text-type.
  5. Which work(s)? and which characters? and what is your main aim for this EE, ultimately? You have to give many more details, otherwise I can't say much at all. No one can. The simple answer to your question, is: "Yes, maybe" -- or "maybe not".
  6. You'll do fine. I've read both and there is plenty you can write about in an original way (that's what matters, in the end) and still do well, even if these are well-heeled classics. Good luck!
  7. Show the knowledge and understanding that you gained via the course. If you learnt about feminism in the course, then deal with an issue in your news article that shows that k&u. For example.
  8. I think the IBO has to ask you for permission, first, if they want to use it. For example, as an exemplar. I think this applies to any intellectual property, so it is yours, definitely and the IBO will hold onto it for a while but cannot use it for training without your permission. It is worth asking your IB coordinator to clarify this. It's an interesting question.
  9. Aya.... OK, I see. Well it looks like you don't have much choice, then. You'll have to wait then for everything to be sorted out. It may mean doing your second year next year, which seems your best bet. In the meanwhile, just keep busy, look into doing some Pamoja courses and study the curriculum. Do you *have* to study in Norway or can you not find something more conveniently within range?
  10. Whoah, sounds rough! Have you thought of doing online courses, with Pamoja, for example? I am not sure if they offer ALL courses yet, but it just may allow you to conveniently work on (and get credit) for courses in the meanwhile, if you don't sort out your school thing this year. Can you not just join a local IB, where you are? They r free in Scandinavia, aren't they? I see your Norwegian flag, so assume you have them all around you.
  11. Choose something that is "of literary interest" and is complex enough to allow you write 4000 words. You can also choose two books for a comparative ee, if you think one alone is not enough. But I agree with emmaxesc12 and Nomenclature, ultimately it will depend on you what you choose.
  12. Here's a tip: study your teacher's notes. Brush up. Read up. Review. Are "tips" really what you want, or just plain old elbow grease? If you forget stuff, just review. This really is no secret. There is no shortage of books or online material that you can use and learn from. History is easy that way -- you don't even need to lift a finger to find a ton of material to learn from. What do you mean by #3 -- "I am not too sure about the system of HL History? If you are not sure about what you should be learning in History at IB, just ask your teacher or go to class. Which system are you talking about, anyway?
  13. Do not attach your essay or work to this site or online. It will be picked up by your teacher's plagiarism checker. Also, it is unethical for anyone else to rework your essay so that you get a 7. It must be your own work.
  14. Yes. French ab initio is for absolute beginners -- I mean real beginners, with no prior knowledge of French. French B is for those with sufficient knowledge and experience,to be able to write and communicate at more than an elementary level. If you've never taken French before or cannot say more than a few sentences, then ab initio it is.
  15. What question r u referring to? The one for Individuals and Societies, or another one?
