  1. Hello, I am about to turn down LSE and King's College London. This is for studies such as Politics, IR, History, War Studies and furthermore International Development. I would rather study law in my own country, and I also dont believe London is a city that suits me. I dont like big cities at all, and is very determined to go to a rather small place with outdoor (hiking, skiing etc...) oppurtinities, both Summer and Winter. This is not a brag about turning down good unis, as the opposite reason is why I am starting this topic: Is it a dumb choice to turn down LSE / King's? I am fairly confident that I will met the conditional offers quite comfortably with a bit of work, and I do see the value of going to one of these unis. This is for undergrad, however, I only see LSE / King's (potentially Oxford) as a place I could go for Politics etc...If I were to study politics in my own country, I could just as well go to London in my opinion, as for these studies, I do believe that London offers some factors that simply is too significant too ignore (such as international community. further eventual career oppurtinities etc...) Is the benfit of attending such a uni higher than factors such as a form of prejudice against cities, tutition fee, accomadation cost etc.. in your opinion?
  2. Hey, I am currently working on my ESS IA, whereas my teacher has approved my topic, however as my thought was to use (and cite as my main source, but obviously not the only source) a government-controlled experiment report, she was quite clear on the fact that this was not tolerated, as I needed to collect my own data. Yet, I cant seem to find anything from an official IB source stating that this is a requirement. As per my topic is quite complicated, it is practically impossible to gather data myself, however, I have loads of data from that report. So, if there actually is a requirement to gather own data, I have to change my topic. The report is describing why and how they did the experiment, the results of it, the implications etc... so that part is covered per the assessment criteria. Therefore my question is whether there is a requirement to actually set out an experiment myself, or whether primary data by a primary source is enough? Also, by the way, this teacher will not grade my IA, if that matter..Thanks for any clarifications.
