    Practise Papers

    Hey! That is a very interesting combination. I found this great blog that helps me a lot with HL Chem too. Here's the link: https://www.mrwengibchemistry.com It has videos, topic tests, and other activities. It's awesome! Hope you find it helpful

    You know you are an IB student when...

    Disagree, don't know how long until I can relate tho You know you're an IB student when your mood board contains local newspaper clippings of IB-ers getting a perfect 45 in their finals

    Help me choose my subjects! (medicine)

    Hey just wondering; if you're the best at those subjects, why do you want to do Medicine? Coming back to your question, I also want to do Medicine and I've chosen the following subjects: HL: Bio, Chem, Eco SL: French B, Math, Eng My school offers Chem and Geo side to side so I was forced to choose between the two (since I wanted to take both). But according to my research, most Med courses require at least Physics SL and they prefer Math HL, although Math SL is still fine. So to compensate for taking Math SL, I've taken Eco at HL (I'm so proud of my reasoning 😂). Chemistry is a must, although both SL and HL are adequate. Bio was a little confusing. Some courses require Bio at HL, whereas some courses don't list Bio as a requirement at all. In the end, it all depends on what your choice university (ies) wants so yeah. But I would think taking Bio HL if you want to do Med would be necessary?

    How can I prepare for IB?

    This is true. The IBDP is a very demanding and stressful course, so enjoy the holidays and peace when you still have it. It will most probably be the last time you have a proper break without having to worry about deadlines and everything else. But if you still want to make sure you start the IB prepared, make sure you organize yourself well, i.e. having the right supplies, a calendar, study apps (Khan Academy, Quizlet etc.). That's about the most you can do to get a headstart... Also if Bio is a new subject for you, try not taking it at HL because Bio HL is too much work, especially if you're new to it. But this depends on how much work you're willing to put in, whether you've got a good teacher etc. One of my classmates made this mistake and he is struggling big time (we're only 6 months in tho, so he still has time). As for Eco, I was also very new to it, but I choose Eco HL anyways. Fortunately, I've got a great teacher and for now, it seems manageable. Although Eco HL requires you to be good at math so yeah, just keep that in mind.

    English EE on "The Fault in Our Stars"

    Tbh I am also contemplating writing my EE on TFIOS, although English isn't one of my HL's. I was maybe thinking about focusing on the portrayal of Cancer in the book because that is something I am passionate about (and I do Bio HL). But I just needed to know if it was a valid topic

    The new IB maths programme

    Hey! I'm planning to get into medicine too and I had such a tough time choosing my subjects. The thing is to get into any good university, Math Studies is usually not recognized/ accepted. So doing Math SL is always a better choice, and the choice I eventually chose. However, if you want to get into the more mathematical aspect of Medicine such as Biostatics, then I would suggest you do Math HL. Recently, I spoke to these 3 students who completed their IBDP at my school and who are studying medicine in Prague. They said don't do Math HL unless you absolutely have to because you don't really use the skills but some people do it just to make their applications look more competitive. Another piece of advice; Doing 4 HL's are a smart move, but you might want to think about whether you can actually manage the content required for both the HL Langauge courses you're doing. From what I've heard, they have a LOT of material to read and write...

    What's harder: two HL sciences or HL science and math?

    Hey So basically I wanted to do Math, Bio and Chem HL. The problem is, you need to take so many other factors into account: Which field do you want to get into, does the university you want to go to accept your subject choices for their courses etc. Either way, Math HL is supposed to be a very demanding course. So if you're willing to take the chance, go ahead. As for the sciences, I'd say doing self-taught Biology would be the easiest (I'm talking from experience here 😅) because for both, Physics (from what I've heard) and Chemistry HL, the content is quite challenging and you would need a teacher, self-taught would be hard. But I guess it depends on what you're stronger at, and what you can manage? Take care
  8. I would say a planner/ agenda is super important. There will be loads of busy periods where you'll have too many deadlines to remember. So having a way to schedule it physically helps so much. Also, I assume you will be working with a gadget? Make sure you have all the right apps like Khan Academy for revision on any subject, Duolingo for languages, Google Docs and Drive etc.
