    Univerisity of Tokyo

    I am wondering if anyone here has any experience with the University of Tokyo? I will soon be an norwegian IB freshman. With little knowledge of the Japanese language. How long and what will be required to obtain a sufficent mastery of the language? How does the university look upon the IB diploma, what grades will be neccesary to be accepted?

    I would like to thank Rebekah for the bulletpoints and example. It made writing my rationale straightforward, quick and painless. And actually worked out rather well.

    30000 words and counting. Main character has just been caught after infiltrating a mafia hideout where there accidentally just had been a small war between the russian mafia and a Triad. Then he somehow got into a very interesting game of russian roulette with slightly diffrent rules.

    Genius vs. Hard Work

    Genius is a myth, how well somebody do in any given field is dependent on these variables: Attitude, technique and time. Even the great young prodigies like Mozart and Capablance became as good as they were because of more than 10000 hours of practice. If you feel like you ain't getting as much out of your hours as you should, well rule of thumb is that as long as you are bored you ain't learning anything. So as soon as you feel bored revise your attitude and ask yourself the question: what if? To arouse you curiousity. And use and effing SRS, don't go around learning everything twice, once when you were supposed to and once for the exam, it doesn't work. Most of peoples axam revising is actually relearning forgotten things. Don't whine before you have read and applied atleast a couple of good books on study techniques on how to do well. This one for instance: http://www.201thingstodo.com/uploads/What_Smart_StudentsKnow.pdf

    Your favourite physical feature and mental ability

    Physical: My ability to bend space, time and distort reality to my favour. Commes in handy every now and then. Mental: Some people say they want to learn a language, juggle, go to mars. I Just go ahead and do it. The human persistence and ability to learn is our species best feature.

    Music for homework

    Normally i prefer to do my homework without music. But due to noisy siblings i could need some to consentrate. But it can't be music with loads of words and other stuff that makes it hard to consentrate. Any suggestions for homework music?
  9. Try juggling,you will learn how to juggle, have fun and will get's as many hours as you please.
  10. Anybody who has a site with tons of motivational videos? Or perhaps a youtube playlist? Help is needed post every motivational video and soundtrack you come over. I might just maybe do the trick and get us through IB. I'll start:

    IBs a cult in pretty much the same way every other school is a cult

    Fav Anime?

    One Piece, Code Geass, Gintama and Mushishi. Grand animes. gintama is just about the most fun i've ever had. Mushishi is a true piece of art. Wonderfully drawn an dprogresses in a calm manner with loads of wisdom. Really worth it.

    Medical cybernetics

    http://www.ntnu.no/portal/page/portal/ntnuen/search_courses?selectedItemId=31011&rootItemId=29569&emnekode=TTK4505&year=2009 Here you go, supposedly among the best in the world. It's in Norway so there might be some language problems. But if you are smart enough to get in i don't think that will be to much of a problem. They might even conduct classes in english, but what do i know. Have been thinking about applying myself.

    Remember it would deffinitly count as creativity. So you would pretty much get all 50 hours done in one month.

    United World College

    what is in reality the diffrence between UWC and regular IB?
  21. Einherjer


    I participated last year, i used about a hour of writing everyday, sometimes less or skipping days all together. Reaching 50000 is something everybody can do if they have the conviction. That being said, i haven't done it while being in IB. Nanowrimo is really great for making people actually begin writing.

    Why did you choose the IB programme?

    I could list a long list of reasons. But truth is my wery soul denies me from choosing the easiest alternative, thus IB.
