  1. Does anyone know any good revision sites for the neurobiology and behavior option and the further human physiology option? If you do can you plese post the link?
  2. better then the mocks but not the best although don't reall know whether I did the right thing/answered what it was asking did uestions 6 and 7 in section B =]
  3. I'm predicted the same a 7 lol really? our teachs tend to find us around school and ask us...our IB coordinator tends to wander into the library everyday asking how the exams went they seem more nervous then us lol (then again we are the first year) I think it might go up slightly as everyone seems to think it went great and I don't see the IB leaving the boudary low enough for loads of people to get a =/ Woop. Good luck!! LOL. Our teachers aren't bothering with us - except my psychology teacher. Probably too nervous too, and they just want to focus on the year below. Understandable!! Ooo you're the first year? That's pretty cool. Was it okay being like their 'test year'? Hmmm true. But it won't go up too much higher than 70%. Even in the other years when it was 70%, the essays weren't too stressful or killer. But I guess it's just the handful of people on here appear pretty good at Psychology, and there are many who aren't on this site who would've found it killer. Hopefully? thanks good luck to you too!! yep first year yeah we really were the test year...they've changed everything with the year 12s as they realized how they did it with us was a mistake (ToK presentation done in February, mock exam 2 weeks back, etc) and now their doing ToK in the first year and mock exams in December....Granted they did try harder with us and they were more supportive lol lets hope so lol and that's true in our year theres about 2 people getting level 7s throughout the couse (me and another kid in my class) the rest get level 5s so hopefully it's just the ones on this site who find the test really good
  4. that's what was so great every month our teacher would give us ast papers to sit under exam conditions so we've sat everyone from 2003-2008 and I looked at 2009 myself...it was hilarious because we all left smilling and one of our teachers kept jumping up and down squeeling at how excited she was that we all looked like we did great on the paper. Granted I was a bit dissapointed as I was hoping for a bit of a challenge but eh what can you do. what are you predicted in Psychology? Aha that's awesome. Our teacher has sent a very nervous email to all of us asking how it went. Poor guy, too nervous for us (which doesn't say anything good... XP) I'm predicted a 7. You? What I don't get is why the grade boundaries are quite low (compared with other subjects, like history were a 7 is 80%). For us a 7 is 70%. But all of us seem pretty darn happy about this year, so do you think the boundaries will go up a bit? I'm predicted the same a 7 lol really? our teachs tend to find us around school and ask us...our IB coordinator tends to wander into the library everyday asking how the exams went they seem more nervous then us lol (then again we are the first year) I think it might go up slightly as everyone seems to think it went great and I don't see the IB leaving the boudary low enough for loads of people to get a =/
  5. lets hope not haven't seen the physics exam but maths was OK (granted I take studies)....maybe the IB will be nice with Chemistry...gonna stay positive here
  6. well the main thing that I'm struggling with is the all the calculations we have to do....information I'm OK with but the calculations I don't seem to use the right ones at the right time or I use the wrong numbers and it really affects my confidence as they tend to be at the start of the paper (I take math studies so have never really been stron with math)
  7. Hi, well I take HL chemistry and I want to at LEAST get a level 4...my course work is a level 5/6 and well how many marks in papers 1, 2, and 3 would I need approximately to get a level 4? I'm really scared I'm going to fail this exam ...I've been trying so hard, doing past papers and everything but it doesn't seem to go in...and I am really freaking out and don't know what to do...I have studied it's just that Chemistry doesn't seem to want to stick in my head...any ideas on how to help me remember a few things in the syllabus? I really don't want to fail and I'm starting to really freak out here...one the options I can get a level 5/6 (did in the mocks) it's just paper 2 that really drags my level down
  8. that's what was so great every month our teacher would give us ast papers to sit under exam conditions so we've sat everyone from 2003-2008 and I looked at 2009 myself...it was hilarious because we all left smilling and one of our teachers kept jumping up and down squeeling at how excited she was that we all looked like we did great on the paper.

  9. really lol almost everyone at our school did 8 or 7 I think I was the only one who did 9 lol didn't really wat to take the risk with the classification one
  10. If I did 7 I'd talk about social anciety disorder for the dysfunctional behavior and then talk about models rather than theories - medical model and behavioral model...medical model saying it's genetic and should be treated with drugs (it's an illness just like any other) and behavioral saying that you learn it from the environment... almost did that one but on a whim decided to do 9 lol =/
  11. I think they're pretty much the same just paper one has 3 questions in section be and section A instead of 4 questions like in higher but i think thats the only difference. I know the questions were unsurprising if you've done past papers it would be quite easy to answer them lol but hey i'm not complaining =]
  12. paper 2 I did Dysfuntional etiology of Social anxiety disorder and treatment I talked about Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)... loved this as I got to channel my extended essay into the answer =] Social- asked about a research methodology so basically the same as question 5 in paper 1 section B Paper 3 was OK I got the questions and everything but I'm also a but worried I didn't write enough although for question 3...question 1 I really liked =]
  13. Darn, I should have used cognitive dissonance. I really wanted to use that one, but I didn't want to risk it since I didn't remember if it was listed as a key concept, so I ended up using memory. yeah our teacher basically drilled into our heads if anything on human behavior in cognitive comes up write cognitive dissonance lol such a great thing to write about as well... an hour until we can talk about paper 2 and 3 =]
  14. well according to our psych teacher when she went on this IB training course they said it would be harder then previous years which looking back to the paper I think was just to scare us to revise tbh =/ I almost did schema and memory but changed it at the last minute and did cognitive dissonance as I know more about it gotta love rogers always a way to bring him into humanistic...took and hour and 20 minutes to answer the first 4...wrote 14 pages...hand actually killed after that exam lol also that 8 mark cognitive one came up 3 years in a row (2008,2009, and 2010) just worded slightly differently but essentially the same question...couldn't believe it when seeing it!
  15. It was awesome - really loved it and apparently this year was supposed to be the hardest according to our teachers. It was such a great paper!!! for the sections I wrote section A: Biological talked about: aggression- linked into how the biological perspective says that it is genetic and linked this in with a few studies- saying that there is empirical evidence to back it up and then said a problem is that it disregards the environment and gave an example Cognitive talked about: cognitive dissonance and backed it up with a study learning talked about scientific study of hypothesis and then looked at studies and basically evaluated the contribution humanistic talked about: Truax analysis on rogerian therapy sessions Section B- Question 5 =]
