  1. How old can data for IA be? Is 2015 acceptable? I can't find it in criteria.
  2. I haven't considered this point of view - indeed, versatility of interests might be an advantage. Thank you!
  3. That's true, I should contact particular universities to get to know what they value the most in the applying process. Thanks!
  4. Hello everyone I am willing to apply for medicine in the UK. I am aware of the competitiveness of this course and thus, I would like to maximize my chances of getting in. I know that medical universities perceive more favourably candidates with an EE in biology as it proves their interest in the area. However, to what extent is it taken into account? My point is, writing an EE in science and getting and A is difficult and definitely more risky in comparison to other subjects. My dilemma is: Is it better to write an EE in biology and risk getting a worse grade but having a science topic as an advantage? OR Would it be more secure for me to do an EE in English B, while in all likelihood putting the same effort (as in bio EE) it would provide a sure A? All in all, which option is more reasonable to choose? Do universities value more following your area of interest or do they firstly consider points? What do you think? Thank you for all your opinions!
  5. Hi! Fortunately, I am an Eco SL I decided to choose a different topic - better safe than sorry (especially in IB) Thanks for your response!
  6. I actually had to pick a micro topic since our teacher required us to do so.. The topic I asked about was, as you said, more of a macroeconomic one. Thus, I chose a different one. Thanks for your response!
  7. Hi I am not sure whether the topic of I want of to choose is appropriate for my IA. I was thinking of comparing the quality of apple fruits from mechanically thinned plants vs fruits not interrupted by thinning in their growth (my grandma has an apple orchard). Even though my teacher accepted the topic I have an impression she is not very familiar with this process and I am not sure whether it is not too simple. Thinning of the plants is a common way in gardening of improving plants' quality and increasing their development efficiency. Therefore, isn't it too obvious? I could explore the extent to which it does influence the quality of a fruit.. But I'm still not sure. I'd be very thankful for your opinions!
  8. Hey! I am writing my first article for IA from Microeconomics. I know that I have to focus on this particular unit (not brining up other topic from our syllabus). I am not sure whether what I want to describe is clearly a micro-case. It's an article about imposition of minimum wage in Ontario, the potential effect of which would be job losses. As the topic is a microeconomic one, I'm not sure whether the solution that I aim to propose is (unemployment is a part of MACROeconomy in the syllabus). I was thinking about offering subsidies to firms to increase the production and therefore, the demand for workers? But I'm not sure. Thanks for your opinions

  11. Hi! So, I've just finished my first month of the IB programme. I am planning to apply to medicine in the UK. Theoretically, I have picked all of the subjects that are required (chemistry&biology HL). However, I am concerned about English even though I'm aware the choice between English A and B is not that important for universities (and there is nothing mentioned about in in entry requirements). Currently, I'm attending English B classes, but it is the last possibility to transfer this week. On the one hand, English B is more likely to provide me with a 7 on the exam + it would allow me to focus on biology and chemistry for medicine (as there is definitely less work) However, my tutor claims that English A would prepare me better for the interview and would make my language sound "native". I do like literature, but I dread that it would be too time-consuming and that writing and literature would continuously have a negative impact on my grades from bio and chemistry. The case is: which option should I choose to maximize my chances of applying to medicine with success? Is English A really that demanding and tough? Is it worth to risk my bio-chem grades in order to strengthen my language skills? Is choosing English A really crucial to do well on the interview or staying on English B is enough? Thank you for your opinions
