  1. Sorry to say this, but I think this is a very very bad idea. Hiring someone to do your homework for you will not help you get any better at your subjects. You won't have this help during your exams, so if you haven't been doing your own work, you will not be well prepared. Perhaps getting a tutor might be a good idea, but definitely do not allow others to do the work for you. In addition, IB takes plagiarism and the like offenses very seriously, and any indication of plagiarism may stop you from getting your IB diploma. No doubt most already know this, but just another precaution.

    CAS help

    Good choices! Your activities should be good as long as you take enough photos and do enough reflections. Creativity does not specifically have to be artistic things though. Debate and model UN may also be considered 'creative' activities
  3. I imagine that CAS in Sweden would be basically the same as CAS anywhere else? Maybe do some art projects for creativity, jogging or sports for activity, and volunteer somewhere for service.
  4. IB is only as much as what you make out of it. And by that, I mean to say that it is only a tool that you can use to better yourself. Whether or not you use that tool effectively is up to you, and how you make use of the program. If you don't put in the effort, IB will not do anything for you and might even have negative effects, especially in the self-esteem and mental health areas (since everyone's really smart and there's a lot of stress to do well). If you do put in lots of effort, IB can really help you to improve your work habits and broaden your horizons, so I do think that there can also be huge benefits. Tl;dr: IB is a double edged sword. Only do it if you're prepared to put in a lot of time and effort into it.
  5. The difference is just that externally assessed work is marked by an examiner who is not part of your school, while internally assessed work is marked by a teacher within the school you go to.
  6. Depends on what you mean by CAS project. If you just mean any old activity that you can put in for CAS, then no, it's fine if you are the only IB student, or even the only person doing the activity. Keep in mind, though, that at least a few of your normal CAS activities should involve collaboration and teamwork (and that in the team CAS activities it's best to take initiative and not just do menial grunt work). If you're talking about the long-term CAS project, which some schools (like mine) have, then it must be collaborative. You don't necessarily have to work with IB students, it can be anybody.
  7. Thanks for all the suggestions! I better get reading!
  8. Anything you might recommend for those who want to read political theory/philosophy?
  9. What did you use, then? Did your school use an online system at all? I'm pretty curious
  10. Awesome :)) What other stuff did you read for that class? and what class was it? I might even consider taking it in uni.
  11. I'm on board with this one then! Just gotta find out how to get a copy... Sounds like it was a really fun class! Judging by the book you got to read at least, haha.
  12. The summary seems really interesting! And I am all for sci-fi How was the literary style of the translation, if you don't mind me asking? Also, I'm kind of wondering how you found out about it? (I could maybe find more books like this through the same sources hehe)
  13. Hey guys! I'd like to read some Chinese literature, but don't know where to start. Could you give me some suggestions? (I can't really read chinese very well, so hopefully one with english translations )
  14. Am considering this book for EE, but was told it was studied in Gr. 9 at some schools and so would not be ideal. Did you study this book at your school? What year did you study it in? And what kinds of things did you learn about it? Thanks a bunch!!!
  15. We use it mainly for CAS, but also sometimes for the EE. We did the TKPPD there too.
