  1. You will have to check with your university course requirements.
  2. - Work on your EE and try to complete it by the end of summer - Catch up on your weaker subjects (Make notes if necessary or create a study group with your friends)
  3. Hi, I am currently having my break now. I am not really intending to use this break to revise because it will be the last break that you will actually have since the other "breaks" or "holidays" you will have is going to be used for school work. So, I guess you should try to relax and perhaps do some revision on your weaker subjects.
  4. He found this task to be too much of a hassle hence he decided to just go back to sleep.
  5. Personally, there is no need to lower your score so that you can improve afterwards. Rather, you should do yourself a favour and keep trying to aim for 7s in your weaker subject while maintaining your grades for other subjects.
  6. Then that should be fine. You do not need to take both languages as language A.
  7. I can see where you are coming. But, at the end of the day, 5 HLs is really an overkill. Perhaps, you should drop your Arabic language to SL and move your Econs to HL.
  8. History and Econs student here! Honestly, if you want a good overall grade, go for Econs HL because it is definitely much easier to get a higher score. However, if you really find history interesting, then just take history. Personally, I find history to be more interesting than economics.Hope this helps!
  9. I assume you are using geography and some science (biology perhaps?). If so, you need to be more specific with the type of impact you are referring to. For instance, are you referring to a political or social impact? Hope this helps!
  10. I am not sure of the context of this situation - so please correct me if I am mistaken. As a student who takes HL economics this year, I didn't really feel like there was a need for you to have background knowledge or prior experience with the subject because they will start from the basics, like the concepts of demand and supply, before moving on to advanced content like price ceilings and subsidies. So, if you are worried that you will not understand anything in Econs class, don't worry because neither did I when I took HL economics. And, I am doing fine still (managed to get 7 points in my first test). Hope this helps!
  11. All the subjects seem fine. But, like what Shellzie said, why do you want to take 4 HLs? Frankly speaking, 3 HLs is already a nightmare by itself. Having to take 4 HLs would be an intellectual suicide haha. Anyways, wish you all the best for your IB journey next year!

    Math IA- Help

    Try focusing on one specific factor like age. By analyzing various factors, you are unable to examine each factor with enough detail in your IA which in turn may cost you a few marks. Hope this helps!
  13. Think about it, you will still get stressed if you drop DP and join a normal program. Even though the normal program may not be as stressful as the one in DP, you will still be pulling some all-nighters occasionally because things are only going get tougher. So, either way, you are unable to escape all of this stress. What you can do is learn to manage your emotions and find ways to tackle your stress. Personally, I like listening to music while doing my work. It not only helps me cope with my stress, it also makes me more focused. Just remember, you aren't the only one experiencing this stress as everyone around you are probably in the same predicament as you. Don't worry about it too much! Like what someone else already said, you could start preparing for IB during the holidays to give yourself an edge in the first year of IB. Hope this helps!
  14. Hi Yujin! I was in your shoes a few months back. Personally, I would strongly recommend you to relax during the holidays since you will not be getting much rest time after IB officially starts. However, what you could do (if you really insist on getting a head-start) is to work on your foundations for all of your subjects, particularly your languages and mathematics. Hope this helps!
