  1. My subjects are English Lit HL French SL Economics HL Chemistry SL Maths SL Biology HL all my teachers are telling me not to do the EE in their respective subject because it's too difficult, too much stress, marked harshly etc. Which is a bit disheartening because I have no clue what to choose. We have to put in two preferences (2 subjects), so I was wondering what you've heard/experienced doing an EE in these subjects. Any opinion would help so much!!!
  2. I'm not sure if anyone's doing this book but i'm basing my IOP on "The English Teacher" by R.K Narayan focusing on the effect of language in the book or the portrayal of Indian culture and stereotypes in the book. I don't want to g the analytical way because that's what i did the past two times so any one have any ideas for presenting it in a creative way? Thanks
  3. Hello everyone i am p­lanning to start my E­E and i ve already re­ad both books so i wa­nted to check whether­ my research question­ is good or not --How does the use of­ racism affected the ­spirituality and the developments of the c­haracters in Harper L­ee's To kill a mockin­gbird and in Tony Mor­rison's The Bluest ey­e? Human spirituality an­d racism in Harper le­e's To kill a mocking­bird and in Tony Morr­ison's The bluest eye­? Comparing and contras­ting mockingbirds in ­Harper lee's to kill ­a mockingbird and mar­igolds in Tony Morris­on's The Bluest eye I have these 3 questi­ons in mind. Could yo­u inform me which one­ is better or which o­ne can be implied in ­a better way?
  4. Hey guys, I have vacation going on, so i thought i would use this time to think of an EE topic in advance. So what I was planning to do is comparing Frankenstein - Mary shelley and The Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson. I would like to know if this is a good topic to go ahead with. I've emailed my english teacher about this but he is not replying at all. I would really like it if anyone could give me their opinion or advice on this. Thank you in advance.
  5. What subject's are you guys doing and what are you planning to study at university?? personally, I'm doing HL: - Biology - Chemistry - Geography SL - Maths - English Arabic I'm planning to go into dentistry (starting IB in September, i might swap geo with english)
  6. Hey, I started my extended essay in english, comparing Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies. My topic is "To what extent do Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies provide a clear depiction of authoritarianism?", in which I compare the the farm rule under Napoleon, and the the island rule under Jack. I reached around 1,200 words, comparing both regimes to each other, and to the aspects that make an authoritarian regime, and i started to think that this topic doesn't extensively explore literature, and diverts from the purpose of the extended essay in literature. Is the topic fine, or should it be more connected to the literature aspect? Thanks
  7. Hey!! I am doing my EE in English language and literature and it's a category 1 and it is on The Perks of Being a Wallflower. My research question is "To what Extent were the books that were mentioned in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" had an impact on the mentality of the protagonist?" the thing is, I am starting to work on my EE but I do not know where to start. And I do not know if I have enough content for my EE!! Could I get some Guidance??
  8. I am looking for a university to go to in 2018. I am planning to go to med school once I finish the IB. However, I cannot afford to go to an expensive university in the UK or America. Does anyone know any places where I could go to university to do medicine in english at relatively low cost. Thank you.
  9. If I have any relevant information that I paraphrased from a source, do I need to cite it iif I have used it in my abstract? What if it is info that I have included in my intro

  12. Hello! I am very interested in F. Scott Fitzgerald and his depiction of the jazz age through his different books. I've read The Great Gatsby & This Side of Paradise. I'm beginning to read The Beautiful & The Damned. Basically, I'm trying to figure out a way to tie all three books into a question. Ideally it would be all three but I can settle for just two books tied together. I know that many say that he has depicted himself within these books & that he has a very specific way of how he perceives and describes women within his novels. Please help me by leading me into the right direction with any advice you can provide me!!
  13. Hi, so I'm choosing my HLs in a couple of weeks and I'm stuck between whether I should do French B HL or English A Lit HL ?? So far I'm doing very well in French B SL, and pretty good in English HL. If I did french B HL I would really want a 7, and English HL I would be aiming for a 7 too, but a 6 would still be great! If you have any advice from personal experience on what's easier/more doable it would be so appreciated! The other two subjects I'm probably going to end up doing HL are economics and bio, but if for some reason any of those two are a mistake please also let me know!
  14. Hello, I have finished Grade 10 and will embark upon my IBDP journey starting this August. Quite a few people seemed to be concerned with the difficulty of my course selection. I have chosen the subjects below: Mathematics HL Physics HL English Language and Literature (A2) HL Chemistry SL Business and Management SL Chinese B SL I want to pursue Computer Science in university, hence is why I think Math HL is a must, and I also think that Physics HL would be useful. I am very fluent in Chinese and B SL would not be a problem. What concerns me is Math HL and Physics HL; I enjoy Math and Physics a lot, but I am not necessarily 'good' at Physics. Could anyone give advice on my choices? Help would be appreciated
  15. Hey all! So I have to hand in a draft of my written assignment for English A SL in the coming week. Our teacher can only give us feedback this once and there after we are on our own. I understand that it counts for 25% of the grade which is a lot so I don't want to compromise on this. I was looking at the assessment criteria and it is as follows: A: Reflective statement (3 marks)B: Knowledge and understanding (6 marks)C: Appreciation of writer's choices (6 marks)D : Organization and development (5 marks)E: Language (5 marks) I don't really get C: Appreciation of writer's choices. How do I show this in my essay. In the body I have basically three main paragraphs that prove the thesis statement. It is about a play so most of the content is just evidence through dialogue and behavior of the main character. How do I incorporate say the significance of this and this metaphor if it does not lead to achieving the goal of proving my thesis? And what if the play doesn't have that much in terms of writer's choices? What exactly is writer's choices? Also can someone outline what to write in the conclusion? I read somewhere here that you sum up your main points explain the significance of the final product and also come up with something new. Also if anyone has any tips generally with the WA or just essays in English it would be a great help to list them here, I haven't had much practise in school for essays and I don't feel very confident considering it is to be externally assessed. Thanks! Haseeb
  16. Hi guys! In September I am going to enter the IB programme. One of the subjects I dread the most is English A HL. I am not an English native (I am Polish), therefore I would like to ask for any advice on how I can prepare for the programme over the summer. An exam I have recently taken assessed my English level as C1. I will be grateful for your opinion and advice. Take care
  17. Hi all, My school just started the EE process a month or so ago, and I'm doing a Lit Category 1 EE. I have done a proposal and finalised a working RQ and text which has been approved by my supervisor, but am slightly at a loss as to how to timeline my EE process so I don't end up doing everything last minute (that's NOT the way to an A lol) For context, my final EE DRAFT (not final EE) submission to my school is roughly in end Jan 2018. After discussions with my supervisor, I have to get a working DETAILED outline out by the end of the June holidays (not a US student so we have a June & Nov/Dec holiday system here), and I'm aiming for a first draft to be finished sometime around mid Aug 2017. I generally consider myself a decently planned/organised student but I'm somewhat at a loss on how to plan this project since it's literally the longest thing I've ever written. So far I only have a mindmap of ideas but it's far from detailed and nowhere close to a conclusively flowing argument I'm also not exactly sure how to go about exhuming the text (Ursula Le Guin's 'The Left Hand of Darkness' - I'm examining gender) during the coming 1-month period. Should I try and formulate 3-5 claims and use that to focus my analysis? Should I do a character-based approach for the two main characters and an additional map for the societies Le Guin presents (which are also a way she explores gender); and use that to formulate claims? How does one even self-analyse an entire book (even if it's a decently short one)? All the book-based literary analysis I've done so far has been guided and I'm honestly not quite sure how to go about this. So my two questions are as follows: (1) How do I go about planning a detailed timeline for this? (2) How can I approach analysis so I can plan my outline? Thank you in advance for any advice + sorry for the long read!
  18. Hi! I am currently planning my RQ for my EE in Lang & Lit. I want to write an essay on something along the lines of "the use of humour/satire in The Simpson's & Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream". However, I am confused on how I should frame my research question as what I have right now seems very vague. Are there any specific topics I could explore more in depth that are common both of these works? As well, is this a suffiecent topic? P.S. I am pretty sure this would be a Category 3 Essay - and the guidelines states that the essay should have "textual analysis" and have reference to a "cultural context". I am not sure to what this would mean..

  20. Hey guys! First time here on ibsurvival, hope all of you are doing well It's time for me to chose my subjects for IBDP, so I was going through the choices and I stumbled upon English A: Language and English A: Language and Literature. I was just wondering the difference between the two of them, the advantages and disadvantages, and the features of HL and SL in both Language, and Language + Literature respectively! Thank you in advance! ali.asif
  21. Hey, Does anyone know how to revise for paper 2 english?
  22. Hey, does anyone have any English LAL paper 2 samples? Both SL or HL will work, but I'd prefer SL. My teacher hasn't given us any samples, so I'm not really knowing how to write one with confidence. Thank you.
  23. Hello All, As the May 2017 exams are coming up I have a question regarding English Literature A at Standard Level. I wonder whether it is worth writing about 3 texts in the paper 2 essay or whether 2 texts are sufficient in order to achieve a high mark.
  24. For english A1 in extended essay, for the book, do you know any good ideas? Thanks for your time.
