  1. If you don't want to retake, will you consider some sort of community college, study hard for 2 years and transfer to university? Or is there any other exams you can take for university entrance instead of IB?
  2. It depends on which country/university you consider for your medical training. Each country/university has its own requirement. In Canada, for example, you need to have a basic degree before applying to medical school and majority of the students will take HL biology and chemistry to enter a science pre-med program. HL psychology or maths are not required.
  3. Then you better talk to your teacher about the feasibility of doing a bio EE with sufficient support. Otherwise I will suggest doing EE on other subject like humanity or language. Also check which subject you are taking has the best support in your school because I think teachers and resources are very important in doing a great EE.
  4. They put emphasis on grade as well as personal profile. You will have a higher chance if you put more effort on your personal profile instead of getting a 6 on Math SL with same 41/45 score.
  5. Consider to have the subjects remarked while applying to retake the exam as a backup plan if you really want to get yourself into the course you wanted for years. Don't waste time doing other course that you don't want and hoping to transfer to another one; it may not happen as you wish.
  6. You need 12 points all together from the 3HL, as long as there is no grade 1 in any subject. So yes, you can retake your strongest subject instead of your weakest.
  7. You can consider having your HL remarked if they are close to the upper boundary or retake one or two of your HL subjects?
  8. You need 12 for HL subjects to be awarded a diploma. According to the IB website: The IB Diploma will be awarded to a candidate provided all the following requirements have been met. CAS requirements have been met. The candidate’s total points are 24 or more. There is no “N” awarded for theory of knowledge, the extended essay or for a contributing subject. There is no grade E awarded for theory of knowledge and/or the extended essay. There is no grade 1 awarded in a subject/level. There are no more than two grade 2s awarded (HL or SL). There are no more than three grade 3s or below awarded (HL or SL). The candidate has gained 12 points or more on HL subjects (for candidates who register for four HL subjects, the three highest grades count). The candidate has gained 9 points or more on SL subjects (candidates who register for two SL subjects must gain at least 5 points at SL). The candidate has not received a penalty for academic misconduct from the Final Award Committee.
  9. Let me know if you need further help. All the best!
  10. Each subject is US $119. They have eliminated the registration fee since November 2019 to make it more affordable to more students. For more detailed information, you can check out their website here https://ibo.org/become-an-ib-school/fees-and-services/assessment-fees-and-services/
  11. You're very welcome. Remember to check the deadline for applying to retake!
  12. It's worth to have them all remarked since you are on the upper boundary on all 3 subjects. You will need to apply through the IBDP coordinator for remarking. You may also consider to apply to retake chemistry while waiting to be remarked so you have a backup if marks remain the same. You will have the same IA mark if you retake the exam, only marks on paper 1, 2, and 3 will be different. Consider some sort of private tuition before retaking or subscribing to online tutoring. Here is one of the best site. https://www.mrwengibchemistry.com. Good luck!
  13. You are on the upper boundary so it's unlikely but still I heard someone got remarked down to C from B.
  14. If no one in your school has successfully done a bio EE I don't think your school has enough lab and teacher support for it. Then you better avoid it and not getting yourself into trouble later on. If you are really into science, is there other science subjects you are taking? You can consider doing EE on other science subjects?
  15. You should discuss with your EE supervisor first but bear in mind EE is very subjective and mark can go up and down. What is your TOK result? If getting a B in EE will help the overall result then go for it since you are on the upper boundary.
