  1. Show people how they're supposed to format everything for IB and not tell them vital info about their EE's the day before the first draft is due in Managebac
  2. That seems like a good start, if you haven't already I would ask your teacher for more guidelines. I would maybe include some hobbies, maybe your reasons for choosing IB and some general info about yourself. Hope this helps!
  3. That sounds like a good knowledge question and RLS to me. I assume you're talking about video games? If so, I'd start by looking up statistics about video games and violence. Are you looking at a specific age group/country/age group in a country or just in the world in general? I would suggest choosing an age group in the UK since that's where you live and for the other RLS part of the presentation, look at similar statistics worldwide. What WOK and AOK are you looking into? Hope this helps!
  4. Hot because you got a 7 on the physics SL exam props to you 👏👏
  5. So I took the IB Physics papers last Friday and two days ago. When taking the first paper, I only knew of about 3 or 4 questions I answered correctly (out of 30). When I got to the second paper, I knew nothing except for one question part. My teacher completely skipped over a few topics, and paper 2 was almost entirely one topic (I don't know if I'm allowed to say what topic). Paper 3, the option, was better than Paper 2 but still not good. My teacher chose astrophysics for us without telling us what the other options were, and then told us she didn't have time to teach it in class and gave us worksheets and videos and told us to basically teach ourselves. I could have answered a few other questions on the other options, but none of the astrophysics questions. I believe she told us she didn't have time to teach it in class because we spent a lot of class time on the IA because she gave it back to us about two and a half weeks before it was due in ManageBac. We did the experiment and a rough draft of the report in November and were told we would get it back after Thanksgiving Break (and after that, in a few weeks, then Christmas Break, ect. until we finally did get it back). I feel like I did decent on my IA, but horribly on the tests. How hard is it to get a 1 or a 0? I'm hoping for a 2 so that I'm still eligible for the diploma, I'm only at my school because I moved to the area last summer, and IB was the closest thing to my previous school, an early college high school. I don't want to move schools again, but I have some friends at the school I'm zoned for and one of my friends loves their AP program, but I love the arts programs at my school. If I do get a 1, I don't know what I'd do. I've spoken to my principal about my physics teacher and the principal is going to help me, but the tests are already over and what's done is done. Did anyone last year get 1's or 0's on any IB tests?? What are my chances of getting a 1 or 0?
  6. About 3 years late but meh Let me tell you what I wish I'd known When I was young and dreamed of glory You have no control Who lives, who dies, who tells your story -from Hamilton, Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story
  7. What is your real name? Kat 2. Where are you from? USA 3. How did you find out about IB Survival? I was bored in TOK and looking for stuff about TOK presentations 4. What made you register on IB Survival? I thought it was a cool site and we all need IB help, my school doesn't really give us that much help with IB and the coordinator (who is also my TOK teacher) is kinda rude at times. 5. When did you (approximately) register here? Last week, i think it was Wednesday or something? 6. What is your favourite IB subject? IB Philosophy, I love my teacher and the class is amazing. 7. When are you graduating? May 2020 8. What are your plans for university? I'm considering education, or maybe something in communications. I'm still figuring out what I want to do. I want to be a published author. 9. What are your free-time hobbies? Theatre, church choir, swimming, writing, sleeping. 10. If you could change one thing on IB Survival, what would it be? I don't see any problems with it right now, I love that this is a global extension of IB and we all help each other through IB.
  8. Normally, we just tell the teacher if we have an IB/AP test that day, we've had to rearrange TOK presentations so many times because everyone has IB and AP tests. Some of the teachers communicate, some don't, it depends on the school I guess. Everyone talks to the IB coordinator about IB but not all the teachers coordinate, especially if they're in different subjects. History will coordinate with other history, english will talk to other english, ect.
  9. You shudder at certain words TOK has ruined for you (like the word c-u-l-t-u-r-e)
  10. "TOK is easy and fun." "IB Physics isn't that bad." "IB candidates are like one giant family." TOK is awful, don't get me started with physics and the majority of people are jerks. Some are amazing wonderful people whom I look forward to spending more time with. Others are salty snippy picky condescending rude fakers.
  11. I don't think it's generic, I'm not in IB Chem but I did my Physics IA on measuring g force through free fall (I dropped golf balls from different heights), just make sure you state why you chose the experiment in your write up.
  12. My TOK teacher hates the term "IB Cult", which is something us IB people came up with a long time ago (she goes on a rant every time someone says "IB Cult") and I was in TOK when i made my account, and it just came into my head so I decided to just do it.
  13. For me, Physics SL is hard but that's mainly because I have an awful teacher. If you have a good teacher for Physics then you're good. There is a lot of math and formulae in Physics, but that's what the calculators are for !
  14. I came up with two knowledge questions, a broad one and a narrow one: How does knowledge or the lack thereof impact treatment of diseases? (Broad) How does incorrect shared knowledge of depression lead to a rise in severe depression and suicide? (Narrow) I'm thinking of the broader one, since I feel that will allow me to delve deeper into more statistics, maybe statistics of teens, adults, and seniors. For the real life situation, I don't know how comfortable I am going too personal and using my own real life situations, or if I should use other real-life situations with statistics, such as the number of teens or the percentage of teens who are depressed or commit suicide. From there I could go into how knowledge impacts people with depression like the wrong knowledge (oh but you're so happy all the time! you can just snap out of it! You're fine you don't need anything! It's all in your head) and how much we as a society (i can go into different societies, like how USA deals with depression vs how England/Australia/Spain/ect deals with it, then the stats from those countries) are doing. Are we doing enough? Are we doing too much maybe? Are we giving too much of the wrong knowledge? Are we portraying this correctly in an attempt to educate (the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why would be a good example, there's a lot of controversy about that show)? Thoughts? Thanks again!
