  1. Can someone help with physics nuclear reaction problem? 1 H + 7 Li = 4 He + 4 He 1 3 2 2 Find the energy released. Atomic mass of lithium is 7.016u
  2. In my school they didnt offer biology at HL. So I decided to take physics HL instead of biology HL, since in the science subject there is pretty much a light year difference between HL and SL. So I decided its not worth taking SL biology.
  3. In the physics EE guide, it is stated that you should make your essay as much physics related as possible and avoid including concepts from other sciences. Well, my essay is heavily math based. I dont really see whats wrong with that as physics consists of a lot of math.But I've used many concepts in math that you wouldnt see in the physics HL syllabus at all. Mostly things from the math HL option topics and the further maths SL syllabus. Is that okay?

  5. Please dont judge me, its summer holidays ive been working my brains out to come back to school and improve my predicted grades and I found out that only one week ago that you have to apply to UK medicine as early as October. My school never told me this eventough I've made it clear i wanted to study medicine in Uk when I started IB. My IB coordinator told me that when you apply to UK you apply during December, excuse me for believing that. Its frustrating. Oh, and the reason why I've asked the same question a million times is because nobody really gave me a clear answer. All I needed was a yes or no, and now since you have given me the answer I wont be asking for it again. Thanks by the way.
  6. What I mean is if there is a possibility I could not apply to any schools in 2012, finish my 2013 exams and apply with those grades to a univeristy and start studying higher education in September 2014. Applying with my acutal IB grade and basically taking a year off. I havent gotten my predicted grades yet, but I doubt that I could get anywhere with them. My teachers always underestimate my potential. When I did my GCSE's I was predicted 9 B's and 1 A, the 4 months before the exams. I ended up with 4 A*'s, 5 A's and 1 B. So I have no faith in predicted grades. I guess those 4 months of exam revision really made the difference.
  7. Ok, so bottom line is that there is a chance I can use my final IB grades to apply in October 2013 instead of using predicted grades to apply this October. I really dont see why they would accept predicted grades but not the actual grades. Predicted grades are so biased, whether the teacher likes you or not can make a difference of a 6 or 7. Or in your case, a 5 instead of a 7. I will try to get my predicted grades as soon as I start IB2, but I really hope at least the mentioned above option can work for me too if needed. Thanks
  8. Thank you again Arrowhead (for some reason that sounds like an insult). But I have one last question about Oxbridge admissions. Could I complete the IB, finish the 2013 exams, apply in October next year for the undergraduate course commencing at september 2014. And in that gap year, study 1 year in my own country while am waiting? If thats possible, I'd most definetly consider it. In other words, apply with my final IB diploma next year.
  9. Yes thank you, but I still have a few complications. We got a new chemistry teacher in March, and since she didint know us that well, and we had to skim through the book because we were far behind on the syllabus due to having an unqualified ib chemistry teacher as a cover, she deliberately put everybody's grade down and told us that this is just to be fair and that in IB2 we'll get a chance to improve it. We are also getting a new language B teacher and a new TOK teacher. And I am also changing to HL math next year. I finshed SL math in IB1, and I dont want to use my grade in SL math to apply for medicine in UK. Not beause it's bad but because it's SL. And btw, in my school we dont have term exams. I was told that the predicted grades we got in IB1 were meaningless for practical purposes and was just for you to see where you are. So I dont really see another option then the one I suggested above. If anyone has a few ideas of what I can do please let me know so I can think of a strategy now that I have 1 month left of summer holidays. Thanks in advance.
  10. So could I go to each of my teachers and ask them to give me a test and/or a series of test and write my predicted grades based on that? Or if I could the individual oral commentaries, TOK presentation earlier?
  11. If you are not 18 by the application deadlines, are you not allowed to apply?
  12. I know I have asked this before. And I cannot speak for other school, but at least in my school, we dont get our final predicted grades earlier than Decemeber. So if the deadline for applying is 15th October, it cannot work for me. What are my options?
  13. Yes, I want to apply for Oxbridge medicine. So then what should I do, wait a year?
