  1. so its not true? Of course not. Unless the outside of the box was specifically marked as "Do not write here", the IBO understands that handwriting styles differ amongst people and that people have different ways attacking questions. The papers are sent by express courier outside of your school and nobody has time to scan each separate answer.
  2. Speculation is the mother of all evil.
  3. Please continue any discussion in the Exam Discussion forum when your 24 hours are up.
  4. Sorry to burst your bubble there, but I didn't even complete GCSE Maths (but I was predicted an A*) but I still managed a 5 in Math HL (a close 6 if I may add). It's completely subjective. Are you good in Math(s)? Do you like Math(s)? If you tick both of the boxes as yes, then go for it. I like Math(s) so I've even done a couple of engineering math courses at university despite not being required to. If you don't like Math(s) then do SL because without any sort of motivation, it's very hard to get a good grade (this is true for any subject).
  5. You should know that that's the least of your problems. You need a bachelor's/undergraduate degree first before being eligible to apply to any medical school in Canada. There is a workaround to the permanent resident clause if you're willing to complete your undergraduate education in Canada too.
  6. Here's everything up to part c. I can't actually do part d because I don't know how to explain it geometrically. The graph seems to have beens shifted to the right by π/2. For part c, you have to set the integral up, evaluate it equal to k with limits 0 and 2π. I've done that and integrated it, up to the point where you have to solve for k. I'm sure you can do it from there. If you have any problems with that, I can show you how to do that as well.
  7. Chronofox nailed it when they said to do tons of past papers. When I did Math HL, I did every single past paper for the last 10 years that I could get my hands on. There's no other thing to do except to practice.
  8. You'd also need to take the MCAT before entering Med school in Canada.
  9. Economic Left/Right: 0.75 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.62 http://www.politicalcompass.org/printablegraph?ec=0.75&soc=0.62 Hmm. I always considered myself to be more left.
  10. Here's how I see it. I've worked through it step by step so it should be self explanatory. Let me know if you don't understand it:
  11. I believe UBC does, you can apply for their Spring/Winter semester. It's a bit late to be thinking about such a specific program this late in the application period.
  12. 34 points would get you a small scholarship, a year's IB credits and immediate admission at Simon Fraser University in Canada. April 30 is the deadline, get in quick! http://students.sfu.ca/admission/apply/index.html
  13. Sorry, but just because it happened in the past, doesn't meant that it won't happen in the future. People get creative with the repping procedures. 5 posts a day should be fine. It's not the end of the world if you don't get to rep somebody for their post.
  14. The functionality to "neg rep" or "thumb down" was present in the past. People, as expected with the continually degrading nature of human society, abused the feature to let people know they had bad posts and made it into personal vendettas against posters. The "neg rep" function was thus removed.
