    how to think within discipline (history)

    how to start learning history from scratch ? what approach should be applied to this discipline? what does it mean to think historically(thinking within discipline)?

    start learning from scratch?

    well Science ( in general biology,chemistry,physics) , Philosophy and History. I am eager to know how to approach these three in order to well understand the subject and to focus my efforts where it is needed?

    Would you like to tell me how did you manage academics and extra curricular activities? Did you prepare to take ibdp or to admit to UWC? if yes then how? Have you studying ib since long i mean IB PYP and IB MYP? if not, then how did your past education help you in ib? well i mean good academic writing,reasoning,language skills?

    Thank You for giving me the liberty to ask about UWC. Sorry I could not get back soon due to low internet connectivity. Sorry for the long post that I am about to write. Since I took ibdp before but I found my school very different from what ib means by experiential learning. The school community had no impact on promoting your natural urge to learn. But since I devoted myself to find what it exactly takes to enroll in a diploma programme I stumbled upon UWC. Well I heard that UWC students are more experienced before they come to UWC and definitely after enrolling; as ib does this.' So does their previous academic experience (non-ib) help them in any way to perform well in ibdp (academics)?' Before ib I was studying in a coventional academic system until one day I realized I do not know what I am aware about and what I am not (knowledge). It was not independent and self directed learning/thinking that I was looking for. So ultimately there was no answer to why I did not have thoes "aha" moments which education gives you. 'Right now my aim is to visualize what does it mean to become a UWC student!' In order to have some clarity here is some questions I could think of: - What is the significance of studying at UWC for ib in terms of academics and collaboration? - What do they look for in students applying to UWC? - Do they prioratize high academic performance in application process? (I do not have high academic performance.) - What is the purpose of interview they take? - Did you prepare before joining UWC? - will you share your academic experience? My personal goal: - self-development; physical,emotional,intellectual growth - become a lifelong learner - reach a state where life is full of opprtunities and where I have every ability to make them my accomplishments. I struggled almost 6 months to know exactly where I should target my efforts in ib subjects. It reduced my working speed. I think it is the key to good time management. These are some general queries.

    Has anyone heard about United World College? Mahindra united world college? It is the ib school in India. Does anyone would like to share their views about how much tough it is to study there?
  7. hi I have started this topic because I find myself at the edge where I look for things which I would be doing for the rest of my life.I never got the essential exposure in life and the result is I am not able to say clearly when I was most passionate/committed or enthusiastic about something in life? I found out that I was never creative enough and I have not accomplished anything so far if I assess against ib standards. Well since I left my childhood home I suddenly realise that there should be some meaning to life and my existence.That moment was a spark in me that I should get exposure. Would you like to share your stories? Can you suggest me on how to get exposure?

    hi does anyone know where I can find ib course companions for free as a e-book/free subscribtion?Because as I am and also you are damn sure that these books are expensive and right now I can not afford to buy them technically.I do not have any ib friends who have taken same subjects as I am willing to do. I really need to have thoes course companions as I want to prepare myself for ib. Can anyone has any suggestion?

    Want to move to another school

    It's not everyones' cup of tea to do ib. Well currently I can not afford ib that is why I am trying to apply to school which offers scholarship.Does anyone know about ib helping non-ib students who wish to take ib but can not afford. I personally prefered the selection process should be based on person's aptitude and his ability to survive into ib.What about your country;does ib schools offer scholarship?

    Want to move to another school

    computer, as in using the computer in general? like Ms Word, Ms Excel, Ms Powerpoint, etc..? or real computing as in programming, coding, etc? both but first want to start from Ms Word,Ms Excel just to get it clear. I am interested in building my own computer so for that I would like to have knowledge of hardware and software...Its in my nature that I like everything profound but for that I have to start somehow.I prefer a person who is himself computer geek so by working with him I will get familiarise with computer concepts. But I am open to every suggestion.

    Want to move to another school

    hi thank you very much for your support. But still there is problem as my parents are forcing me to go to the current school or leave ib and go to state board because the new ib school that I have applied for reopens in next march..before that it takes series of interviews.My parents are scared of me as seeing me taking one more gap year.I had been through lots of family problems so I had 2 gap years before.Everytime I have to fight to attend school. Hey there! Just before I give my personal opinion, I am very sorry to hear that you went through such bad circumstances and I hope that whatever you chose to do, things will hopefully get better for you Saying that, I agree with everyone here, you should change schools. Nobody should ever experience or be treated like that but nevertheless, I have analysed 3 different scenarios: If you leave... You will be able to make a new start Possibly meet more mature people who wil appreciate how special you are Continue with the IB with less stress = Better environment for your education May fall behind in the curriculum because of late transfer Finish the IB program Knowing this, even if it is hard and you miss more school or if your parents disagree, if you are determined, anything is possible. It may take more effort, but what you can do before the admittance or waiting list is to prepare youself. Prepare for the interview, make the teachers see that you are a bright hardworking student. Show them what you are worth and convince them. Perhaps you can also study ahead during that gap year, learn concepts that are expected from IB2 year (read the course companion guide for the classes you will be taking) I will not lie, I do not know if the other school you go to will be better there but in my opinion, give it a chance. If you stay... As an IB student in your current school Situation may be worse (bullying or teasing may possibly continue) You will not take a gap year, thus saving you time May not fall behind in the curriculum Finish the IB program If your parents do not let you change school's and you end up staying, there is a bright side to all this. Despite the teasing and bullying, remember that it is your education that counts, not theirs. If you are still determined to get that IB diploma, study your butt off, and work harder because in the end of the day, it doesnt matter how many groups of friends that are together, what matters is the day of that exam. The only thing there is that exam paper and you. I know what it is like to be excluded, and not fit in but I didnt let that break me down and stop me from doing what I want to do. Don't ever let someone tell you : "You are not worth it." just be independant and work your hardest. It will pay off in the end. As a non - IB student at your school... Possibly meet others that appreciate who you are. Will not recieve the benefits of the IB program (so international admission to other universities, transfer credits...) Less stress and workload Easier classes? Do you have friends at this current school who are not part of the IB program? Maybe the workload may be easier and thus give you less stress. These are just some things that I thought of after reading your posts. No matter what decision it is, I hope you will chose what YOU WANT to do, and what is best for YOU. Hopefully this helps - Funny10sport Always remember, if there is a will, there is a way. hi thank you very much.Your posted answer definitely helps.I decided to move to another school.But I would like to ask for some more favour;that is the school where I am going to apply needs students those who are politically sound and socially well rounded.Well I have already planned to complete my Bharatnatyam(classical dance) diploma but I was also learning Guitar(I had to leave cause that was not a good choice)...I am very much interested in learning languages,making movies,playing tennis,mapmaking(yet to find resources) and music...and I am open minded as I am always eager to try out new things.Well everythiing I mentioned earlier needs money!! Right now I can not afford a single ib book as my parents ordered me to do it on my own;even cooking.Well would you suggest me ideas to get politically sound? and any money earning ideas? well here in India after 12th you get a loan from bank. Do you know any career councellor/any site that is best to find professional in the area of councelling? Anyone knows how i can get the cource companion;basically free/in half amount? Does ib students give their books/book after completeing ib tohelp another ib student?..............Please do reply if u know.
