  1. I am curious on how and when you should be studying for IB exams? I take HL english, global politics and biology and SL math studies, chemistry and spanish ab initio. I'm not worried about english or global politics that much although tips for studying those subjects would be nice, my weaker subjects are bio, chem and spanish. How would you study for these subjects? Notecards? Memorizing? Rereading again and again? Thank you!
  2. Hello! For my IA, my teacher told me to change my calculations to percent change in mass. My question is, will I need standard deviation for this? Or would I just plot my percent change in mass on the graph only? Thank you
  3. Hi! I need some methods on how to measure plant growth on my IA because my teacher approved my idea but not the fact that I'm going to measure transpiration -- so that's one option out. I've read that I can measure leaf size but how do I do that without cutting the leaf off? Any other methods? Thanks!
  4. My first idea was something to do with autism (my brother has it so I have direct personal connection) and sensory issues, but I can't find any good databases in relation to this topic. It would be great if anyone could find any good databases (but there isn't, I've spent all summer searching for one) but I REALLY need to come up wit a new idea and I have no idea what to do. I feel really lost and stressed because we have to start sharing our IA ideas soon
  5. I'm almost done with year one of IB and am just about to start summer. I want to use this summer to study wisely but the amount of content is so overwhelming in addition to having to come up with IA plans. My weaknesses include biology, chemistry and math (all mock predictions of 5). I want to boost my grade to 7's but so far I've only been getting, at most, B's and have remained within this range without boosting to the A range no matter how much I try. How can I improve? What can I do within this summer to prepare for senior year and get better? Any tips on studying/experience with your summers? (pls dont tell me to "enjoy" my summer bc I'm literally on the verge of falling to a 4 and I want to do better)
  6. Do you mind telling me where she applied to? That sounds like the right thing to do but I'm just afraid universities won't accept me because of math studies
  7. I'm doing horrible in math SL, my counsellor came to see me recently and told me it was best to drop to math studies. I only took math SL because I had biology and chemistry but now that I know that I do not want to do sciences in the future (chem kills me and bio is so complex), I know I want nothing to do with sciences or math in the future. I want to do something to do with literature or law or design. Would dropping to math studies be the right choice? Is law or deisgn related to math at all? Current subjects: HL biology, global politics, english SL math, chemistry, spanish ab initio
  8. Personally I would pick study hall. Study hall is literally my life saviour on days I lacked sleep, needed extra time for work, or study a chapter of bio before my bio quiz at the beginning of every class, or even just some time to de-stress. But if you think you can cope with band, goodluck. My counselor forces us to have study hall because she emphasized on how busy we will be and she wasn't wrong, so just make sure you can manage your time well!
  9. Hey, I'm talking on the behalf of someone who does not like econ or business. Don't take it if you're not interested in it. I know a bunch of people who want to drop because they regret taking the class, having no interest in it. I take chemistry SL and coming from someone who is not a science person, I kinda suck at chem. I was nervous when I chose the course (I'm almost done with year one of IB) but I have to say chemistry SL is not as bad as I thought it would be. If you study consistently, I think chemistry is the best and most chill option if you compare it to business or econ (which requires lots of memorization and concepts to understand and a little math according to people) but that's all up to you and your ability to decide. I'm not sure about history because my school offers global politics (I take it as HL) and it's one of the easiest classes I've ever had because you just use your common sense to understand the world around you. I heard that history is similar to glopo but again, you'd have to look into more detail to see how much work history has
  10. Hello! I'm in my jr year and my teacher advised us to think of IAs now. I'm thinking of doing a database one related to autism, ex, how parental age can cause autism or how vaccines can cause autism and my question was accepted except, I can't find any databases with any information? If anyone has any sort of database sources for this (anything about or related to autism) that would be great!
  11. I'm doing terrible in Math SL (because I lack a lot of basic knowledge of math due to different education systems and me moving around a lot) I am constantly getting C and D grades all year. It's too much for me because the teacher teaches way too fast for someone who has almost 0 knowledge on most these subjects ex. logs. I'm a month away from my Junior Year semester exams and am thinking of dropping to math studies next year for senior year. But would I be able to go to universities because I heard Math Studies isnt taken seriously? My subjects are right now: SL math, SL spanish ab initio, SL chemistry and HL biology, HL english, HL global politics I only took sciences because I wanted to keep my options open and wasn't sure about my career path so I for sure don't want to go into medicine (which I know needs math SL). Now I understand my strengths and most likely want to go to psychology or something to do with design like interior design etc. Would I be able to do be accepted into future uni courses even if I drop to math studies? Thanks
  12. Thanks for your reply, we've covered chapter 9 but I feel like anything I'll do from there will be too cliche since my teacher has mentioned how so many people have already done analysis of enzyme activity and reactions. I could resort to that as my last option but he'll probably think I got that online so I'm trying to come up with something original (which isn't going great lol). For your experiment, were you just using different fertilisers as your independent variable? What chapter would that relate to?
  13. your idea sounds really interesting, thanks!
  14. So im in my junior year and my teacher advised me to start thinking of an IA topic early. I thought of observing the colour changes in white flower petals (when mixing food colouring with water) but then i realized thats more of a qualitative experiment. Could anyone help in trying to put a quantitative aspect to it?? I’m generally interested in the topic of plants and water. My teacher also said using a database is good because you usually have direct personal engagement, so that’s another option. Help is appreicated, thank you!
  15. I'm really confused about the personal engagement stuff that we need to prepare for the global politics IA, so could anyone provide some examples on what they did, or what I can do? I've been looking into human rights but am unsure how I can engage with the issue. Thanks!
