  1. Bumpp Guys, I really need some advice and ideas, please, would be much appreciated!!
  2. I would say that the themes that fit this book the most are the struggle for survival and anthropomorphism. I don't think I can help you much with the research question itself but I would definitely lean towards those two or maybe somehow joining them together in your EE?
  3. Hey! I want to study medicine at Oxford or somewhere else in the UK (I am May 2021). Although I know it will be extremely hard, I want to do my best in order to get into Oxford. So do you have any advice on what should be there in my Personal Statement to maximise my chances of getting in? Are here any people who are studying/have studied medicine in Oxford and could give me any tips or answer some more specific questions? Thanks in advance guys! 😊
  4. When I joined my IB class, I didn't know anyone here and now I have a lot of friends so I totally agree that you can find new friends in your IB class and still stay in touch with the other ones after school! :))
  5. I am in Bio HL, however, I am in Year 1 currently so I don't know how it's gonna be with the further topics, but I'm getting currently mostly 7s and 6s (my average percentage score for the first term was 93%). I have never opened any textbook, but I agree that the Bioknowledgy presentations are amazing and they have everything you need, I guess. I sometimes use BioNinja while making my own notes, because it is, in my opinion, better-organized. And I would advise to solve a lot of pastpapers/question bank problems before tests/exams, so that you can apply your knowledge to the real questions. I don't know if I helped a lot, but maybe if you have any specific questions (regarding Bio because I don't take Psychology and it's not available at my school so I can't really help with that), feel free to ask :))
  6. Do you know where you are planning to study? In what country at least? The requirements usually depend on the uni and also the country, so you should think about that
  7. That's exactly what I did! We had the possibility to change the Math course until the end of October and so I decided to stay. While solving the past paper questions from previous Maths SL (which is, I guess, the most similar to Maths AA SL), I realised that the tests that my teacher makes are actually much harder than those past paper questions and I didn't have any difficulties while solving the past papers. Also, for the most recent test (topic: sequences and series), I solved some questions from other textbooks and got quite a good mark (76%). So, when I actually asked this question here my total score in Maths was around 35% (grade 2/7) and now I have 53% (3/7), while the highest mark in our Maths group is 4/7. So yeah, just in case anyone was wondering/interested/in similar situation/whatever :))
  8. What do you want to study at the university? And have you checked the website/emailed the uni that you want to apply to in order to see if you really need Maths AA? If the course/uni doesn't require you to have Maths AA, you'll be fine with Maths AI even if you're good at Maths, you will just have less work on you.
  9. Hey, I started IBDP Year 1 in September and I've chosen Maths SL Analysis & Approaches. I'm now experiencing some difficulties (as majority of my classmates) because we had a very bad Maths teacher last year. I was always quite good at Maths and that's why I decided to choose AA. However, now I'm considering changing from it to Maths SL AI. I want to study medicine in the UK in the future (I'm dreaming of studying at the University of Oxford or University College London). My question is, is it much better to have Maths SL AA than AI. I checked the universities' websites and they don't say that any of the Maths levels is required for medicine. However, all my friends say that it's actually better to get a 5 in Maths AA instead of a 7 in Maths AI and I could stay in Maths AA class and I can't really decide what to do. Thanks for all pieces of advice!
  10. Hey! I've just started IBY1 and until the end of September, I can make changes to my subjects. So I'm wondering if I should take English B HL instead of English A HL (which I'm taking now). I've always been quite good at English however it's not my native language and that's why I'm afraid if I can handle English A HL. I'm most stressed about the interpretations and analyses of the texts during the final exams. I'm quite good at writing but I'm not sure about analyzing. I'm also already taking 3 other HL subjects (Biology, Chemistry and Geography) and I want to make it easier for me and have the best results possible and since I'm not planning on studying anything especially English- or even humanities-related (such as English literature, law etc.), I think I won't really use the knowledge I gained in English A classes, will only have to struggle with it during the 2 years and never use it again. Thanks in advance for any pieces of advice!!
  11. Hello Rob, Thank you so much for your response! I have already started organizing all the systems and have bought almost all textbooks. I found Biology and Chemistry study guides online (I have the guide to Biology also in paper version). However, I could not find the other ones. It would be great if you could shoot them over to me. Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi! I'm starting in September 2019 and I'm taking: HL English A Lang&Lit HL Chemistry HL Biology HL Geography SL Maths AA SL Polish Literature
  13. Thank you so much!! Do you know where I can find the syllabuses online? I've been searching for them and have only found the ones for Biology and Chemistry here on IBSurvival but I can't find the other ones 😕
  14. Hi! I've heard several times that during the summer before IB, we should just relax and prepare for the 2 hard years. However, I really feel like losing my time since I'm only watching Netflix and stuff because all of my friends are away for some time. Do you think that there are any things I could do duting this summer to prepare myself better for the IB? Btw, if that matters, my subject choices are: Biology HL Chemistry HL Geography HL English A lang&lit HL Maths AA SL Polish A SL Thanks in advance for your help!
