  1. I don't think it makes a difference where you study. I would recommend applying to US universities only if you can score well on the SAT with minimal studying. The chances of being accepted into an Ivy League are slim anyways so why waste so much time studying for that test when you can be studying for IB?
  2. Almost all universities in the US require teacher recommendations and although the importance does vary from school to school, it is generally an important part of your applcation.

    IA Help

    Thank you for the advice. My teacher just told me that my topic seemed a bit broad but I was confused on how to narrow it

    Why did you choose your courses?

    Everyone at my school has to take HL English Lit. A lot of people had to take HL Biology because they needed the credits to graduate.During IB1, HL History was mandatory but now people are switching to SL or dropping it completely. Math classes depended on what level you're on. Lots of students took theater or visual arts because we need at least one year of art to graduate. We're free to choose most of our classes (unless it's a graduation requirement) Why I chose this particular subject combination?: I want to major in Economics so HL Econ is there. HL English is mandatory. HL Math- I got placed in this class. HL Mandarin- I feel like challenging myself (serves as a backup plan if I suddenly change majors or anything) I'm not particularly good at history or science so that's why history and physics are SL. (I also suck at bio and chem)

    Do you think my topic/questions is okay for the IA? How did British influence support Hong Kong's economic rise during the 20th century?

    ACT Prep

    for math, i would look over what is covered in the test (the concepts) and review those. practice tests! the best way is to do practice tests and released questions to get a better sense of the type of questions that are asked.

    Summer Plans before Senior Year?

    Required/My plans Researching for EE/Rough draft done Picking a topic for History and Math IAs/Rough drafts started & possibly finished Rough draft of the Written Assignment For English, I would just work on the written assignment and try to get a draft done by the end of summer. For Chem and Bio, I would recommend going over your notes & possibly re-writing them? It can help you retain all the information you might lose over the next 2-3 months

    Name Your IB School

    Oxford OR Cambridge

    i heard that you can't apply to both so they can limit the number of applicants that's also, i believe, the only exception to the 'any 5 unis' rule

    Anyone tried pulling an all nighter?

    i haven't pulled an all nighter but it's only my first year seems like most of those come from IB2 when IAs are due

    IB or AP

    syllabus-wise, AP would be easier since there's less material and it's kinda more straight forward. the tests, i would say, are easier than the IB papers
  14. from my experience with mandarin, SAT II was much easier than SL. i think 700+ might be equivalent to a 4/5 you shouldn't have a problem getting 650+ on SAT II if you feel comfortable with SL
