  1. Hi everyove, its the middle of the summer and iM SUPOSED TO WRITE MY EXTENDED ESSAY and submit the draft on august 26th. Originaly my research question was Effect of changes of the pH on photosynthesis of aquatic and terrestrial plants or How are terrestrial and aquatic plants impacted by changes of pH, measured by oxygen release during respiration, something in this manner. But as I started writung it, there is really not much to write about for 4000 words! Any ideas? I am already demotivated by this topic... My advisor is no help and she just said "yeah, ok you can do that' withour even discussing the topic and experiment. Now I want to write it on astrobiology and emergence of life, this was always interesting for me, but the supervisor said its not a good topic. But now I really need help with finding and doing an experiment that would fit under emergence of life and its possibilities on other planets. An easy experiment that could maybe show how life can emerge in different conditions. Please help as soon as possible!!! I apreciate any help and suggestions!
  2. Hello everyone! Right now I feel that I reached my lowest point in my life. I am failing IB, and generaly feel so depressed. In our school we have marking 3 periods and end of year examps which count like a 4th marking period. Im finnishing IBDP yerar 1 and my grades wouldnt be worse: marking period 1= 24 points, marking period 2= 27 points and marking period 3= from my aproximate calculations i figured I wouldnt recieve more than 22-23! The subjects that i take are: Biology HL, English HL, Psychology HL, Chemistry HL, Math sl, French sl. I struggle mostly with math and CHEMISTRY (I HAVE A HORRIBLE TEACHER WHO DOSNT EVEN TEACH). I dont know what to do... I WORK REALLY HARD, tutors and past papers but nothing seems to work for me, idk. Please suggest something to me, a technique or options for universities that I have a chance in.. Also what is the outcome of these grades? How are predicted and real ib grades calculated?
  3. Hi! I really need some help with the ERQ for Animal Research in Bloa There are 3 potential practice questions that we are supose to write a practice ERQ on, but I dont know which studies to use for each of them and what information to include! 1)Discuss the value of animal models in the study of the brain and behaviour 2)Evaluate one evolutionary argument to explain one human behaviour 3)Discuss how genetic simillarities help psychologists in the study of genes and behaviour These are the studies that we can use: Roger's and Kesner, Meany Stydy on Stress Hormines, Rosenzweig study, Romero et al study. Endophenotype Argument, Harlow's Monkeys Please help as soon as possible! Thank you.
  4. Thank you very much for the advise! I rellay apreciate the time and courage you put into this. Your advise is very wise and helpfull, even eye openning that IB is not the end of the world and that ther is aways a way out. Thank you very much!
  5. I very much understand what you are feeling and how stressul this is because Im basicly in the same situation right now. Likewise, I never got any support form my familly which, ofcourse, makes me feel horrible and worthless. See? Youre not alone! I figured that its very imortant to have a safe zone where you can feel free to express you feelongs. IB is harsh, they make it very easy to loose control and interest over the things that you were enthusiastic about before. But we're all in it so we might as well try our best. What are your cirrant grades? What are you planning to do in college? Which college did you get an offer from? Please try to stay as sane as possible, work your way up with tini-tiny steps, they will eventualy make a difference.
  6. Hi everyone, I didnt know where else to go to and get some help because my parents are not supportive at all. My mom literraly just shouted at me for crying while I was obsessively searching university requirements...she told be to stop whining and exhagurating. So Im into the marking period 3 of IB year 1 and my grades are super low to what the others are getting easily. I have 27 points now while others manage to somehow get 35 and 38 etc. I had always set myself a very high standard for education, I always study very hard but it just doesnt seem to be paying off...What do I do if even though I work my self out till the last, I do everything I can, tutuors and online stuff, I cant get the grades I need? Especualy in CHEM AND BIO? I take HL(English L&Lit(5), Psych(6), Bio(4)) and SL(Chem(3), French(4), Math(4)). I really want to take Biological sciences undergraduate courses in college in UK, but I guess with this amount of points I have no chance.Can anyone suggest possible courses and universities that I might go to with not so high mark band? Lastly, I just want to reasure myself and get some support and know that even if this is too bad, I still will have some options for future... I feel very depressed and lacking self confidence as never before, shcool days are pure hell for me even though Im a workaholic and enjoy learning. Please help.
