    Are images allowed in an IA?

    As far as I know, I would stick to just text, unless you are doing an IA based on old photographs. Yet, this is something you would have to check up for sure in the history syllabus (if it is stated). There is nothing on the grading schemes for the IA that says "no pictures". Just remember, when the grader goes to read the IA, they won't be caring about the pictures. Make sure you don't try and cover up your writing downfalls with many pictures, the graders know what to look for, so it won't work
  2. Yeah, but I wanted something written a bit more clearly... What is implied in this statement for example: "The geopolitical and economic impact of the treaties on Europe; the establishment and impact of the mandate system" ? There is A LOT that comes under this. I just wanted to know what specifically I should focus on... Well, for this specific example, I would have to say it is pretty clear. It is a detailed topic with lots of info, which is something you'll have to get used to. When is speaks of the geopolitical and economic impact, look at just that. Look at specific countries and the impact of those factors, and than look at how the impact of some countries may have effected others. (this is just an example). As far as the mandate system goes, you want to look at when, who, where, why and how. Then look at how the whole mandate system impacted the European countries, maybe international countries, specific people, specific political, economic or social factors, etc.

    IA - "The Perfume", Suskind

    I don't think analyzing how he is not a tick is a good idea, because nothing in the book really points towards that idea. If Grenouille is not compared to a tick he is compared to other insects, such as the spider. My suggestion would be to simply analyze how similar he is to a tick. You can look at the language the author uses to describe him, people's interactions with him and reactions. The setting when Suskind describes him as a tick (usually the setting is the opposite of his descriptions- a beautiful place, like the perfume store, versus the description of the tick). These opposites intensify the grotesque descriptions of Grenouille. If I was to do my IOP on Perfume, I would look at how Suskind uses contrasting descriptions and scenery, people, attitudes, to intensify the descriptions.

    Difference between History Paper 2 and 3?

    This is not necessarily true, depending on what you mean by region. Your teacher assigns a specific History Aspect, and you must study 3 options out of 12. The exam will have 24 questions, 2 for each topic. You can chose any 3 questions to answer, and you should chose from the questions related to the 3 options you studied (of course). In other words, you will have about 6 questions to chose from. What I mean by not necessarily having to chose a region is that, although you are limited to one aspect (for instance: aspects of the history of europe and the middle east), you could chose very different 3 topics (for instance, the French revolution, post-war developments in the middle east and imperial russia). Paper 3 tends to be more detailed than paper 2. For instance, if you do WWI in both P2 and 3, you need to know tones more info on WWI for P3 than you would need to know for just P2.

    IB History HL Paper 3 - Sources?

    Instead of memorizing sources, seeing as you have no idea if you will be able to use them or not depending on the question you receive, I would suggest memorizing arguments of historians (historiography all the way), and state their arguments in your essay, then support them with your own analysis and other evidence. so for instance, "Historian Davies argued that blablabla. This is a vital argument, because it relates to blablabla."

    Notes for History HL

    Any notes are in the Files section. Study like you normally do, but make sure you are looking for arguments, making connections, not just learning stuff as a narrative. When you are studying, thing of essay questions you could form out of the material. For wars, there are always questions on either: causes, practices or effects. Now think of questions related to those three that could possible appear. For instance, strengths and weaknesses of the effects of some war (that was a really badly formed example, but yeah, you get it right?). Usually I go through my texts, make notes and go back through my notes and make arguments for things, and I highlight them so when I'm studying I immediately know it's an argument I should keep in mind. Another major thing to do: find old exams. Practice those questions, because the questions are generally very similar, but don't count on them being TOO similar or the same.

    Any advice for exam technique?

    On your exam you can write it however you want. It's up to you. There is not criteria for the technique in which you write. If you want to skip every other line in case you need to add something in, do that. If you want to write everything line after line after line, do it, and if you want to skip a line between each paragraph, DO IT! I don't understand why your teacher marks you down for such a thing. It is not in the markschemes. That's like saying your going to get graded on your handwriting- everyone has different handwriting... Anyways, do it the way he says, just to satisfy him. When exams come, if you feel more comfortable doing it another way, than do it your way. He's not going to see your IB exam anyways, so he'll never know.

    URGENT: CAS and IB requirements

    Everything gets sent to the IBO. I don't think it will affect your CAS journal. I did Student Council and didn't journal at all. Instead, I wrote one reflection essay at the end of IB1 and one at the end of IB2 specifically for student council. In order to pass CAS you need, firstly, the hours, generally divided 50-50-50. You need a supervisor to sign off any CAS hours you get, and you need some form of reflection. I didn't do logs for anything except when I was a TA for a math class, even then I wasn't very consistent, yet I am known for having one of the best CAS journals/reflections. I would suggest just writing up an essay (a few paragraphs, doesn't have to be long) about your experience in Student Council as a whole.

    Candidate Statement Art HL

    First paragraph: intro into your art work (why do you create art? what purpose does it serve in your life?), support this by talking about your future goals and aspirations in art for the future Second paragraph: write about your thought process when choosing how to do a project (how do you choose your materials, techniques, themes, etc.) Has someone influenced your methodology? Third paragraph: due to the stuff mentioned in the 2nd paragraph, how has your are developed? How have you grown? What are you exploring momentarily, what challenges are you trying to overcome? etc. etc. I'll try and give something in more detail when I get a chance.

    Oh oh oh, I've got one: Tequila, with lemon, not lime
  13. My english teacher gave our class a former IB P2 question to write an essay on, but she wants it to focus on one book (The Glass Menagerie) instead of two: "Comedyexposes human weakness; tragedy reveals human strength." How and to whatextent does this claim apply to at least two of the plays you have studied? I have a problem though... The way I interpret the book, the tragedy exposes the characters weaknesses, not their strengths. So now I have no idea where to start or what to write. Has anyone read the play? Any tips on tragic elements in the play that reveal human strengths? Thanks in advance!
  14. Although you are aiming at the devices, I wouldn't use the structure of addressing dialog, monolog and stage direction in theme A, then B, then C It think it would be more organized and clear if you did: dialogue in theme A, B, C then monolog in A, B, C then stage direction Honestly, it is difficult to come up with a perfect structure when you are looking at 3 devices' contribution to 3 themes. Either structure of the essay could fit properly if you state things correctly.
