  1. I’m a matric student going into IB and I’m taking economics, business management, physics and math and I have no strong base on any of the subjects. But I am willing to do watever it takes to get above 35 in IB
  2. I have 3 long questions.... I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP If I get 14 in my Chemistry SL IA, How well should I do in the exam to get a 7 in Chem???? (I know I should get all 7 in 3 papers, thats not my question. My question is how high should I get within the 7 range) Also, my Econ teacher is not a real econ teacher (sounds weird but its true). She was actually a 4 years Bussiness&Management teacher. But 2 years ago, our real Econ teacher had an incident so he had to go back to his country(England). SO basically, she taught us Econ for 2 years.(ofcourse, she didn't teach anything,, basically it was studying on our own) Because of that, in a econ class, we only have 5 people. I thought I was screwed But I SOMEHOW managed to understand whole thing by myself and actually think I did no less than 6 in the exam. (like honestly my predicted grade from my classmates and teachers is 7 and my gpa in econ is A+(99.2/100)) BUT HERE IS THE FREAKING PLOT TWIST. MY ECON TEACHER, GAVE ME A GOD DANG 28/45 in my FREAKIN IA!!! (SHE SAID SHE"S AFRAID OF GETTING MODERATED DOWN AND HARM HER CAREER....) SHE DIDN"T EVEN ASSESSED IT PROPERLY. SHE GRADED 15 IA's (3 per person) in like 1 hour!!!!! I asked alumnis, I asked other economics IB moderators, I asked econ private tutor. I showed them all my IA. THEY ALL SAID MINE IS NO LESS THAN 37/45 (ESPECIALLY MY MACRO IA IS NEAR PERFECT) So my question is, IF MY IA is really a quality work that deserve 37/45, will they grade like 9 points up??? I mean we only have 5 students so all of our IA went to IB and I think it;ll get moderated individually(correct me if Im wrong). I am legit so scared if my IA will remain 28/45 with no reason... (Because I've never seen a moderation of 9 points increase or something) LAST LAST Question I had 3 EE supervisor. (Yeah, you saw that correctly. Our school is terrible). I chose English B as my EE subject. My first supervisor only stayed for first 3 months. He got fired from a school (He had an affair with alumni...) So substitue supervisor was given by school (I had no choice), it was English A Lit teacher (She was the best supervisor and I wished school let me finish EE with her...) But substitute supervisor only stayed for like 6 months. Because school found and hired a new English B teacher. But here is where all the trouble starts. This new teacher, is NOT A IB TEACHER. She taught English in Japan's Public school. She does not fully aware of whole IB system. So I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO WRITE EE ALL BY MYSELF. BUT WHEN I SHOWED MY FINAL WORK TO ENGLISH A LIT TEACHER, (SHE TAUGHT IB FOR 11 YEARS), SHE SAID IF IT WAS FOR ENGLISH A, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN 22/34, BUT SINCE ITS ENGLISH B, SHE SAID NO LESS THAN 25/34 AND POSSIBLE 27/34 IF LUCKY. BUT THIS NEW SUPERVISOR WHO HAS 4 MONTHS OF IB CAREER GAVE ME A PREDICT OF 16/34!!!!! (WHY IS MY SCHOOL LIKE THIS) MY Question is , when EE moderators grades it, does this predict grade affect their moderation????? Sorry guys I have 3 long questions. But I really need your help. My school is arguably the worst school in Malaysia..... Please help me!!!
  3. Hey Guys, I'm trying to look for an article for my first IA draft, and the teacher requires us to do it on Microeconomics. Are there any specific economic scenarios that can be talked about from a Microeconomic standpoint? Thanks, Maharaja Stylo
  4. I’m doing my Extended Essay on the effects on the city’s tourism of a music festival and all the smaller events it sponsors. I’m planning to mention how it gathers people and activates different economic areas, so it triggers economic growth in the region. My question would be ‘To what extent is the music festival effective at increasing tourism in the city?’ or something along those lines. Though I think it’s too broad and should be specified more. I appreciate any tips on how to make it more narrow or maybe approach the question in a different manner! Thanks.
  5. Hey everyone! I will be doing IBDP next year, and I have chosen PPE as my future course in the university. However, I am not sure about my IB subjects. I have a list of my choices : Azerbaijani A (my first language) SL English B SL/HL Maths HL Biology or ESS SL (not sure about it because i dont need neither of them, i just want to get the easiest one) which one should I choose? Economics HL Global Politics or Geo or History HL/SL ( I am not sure about this one either because people recommend me each and every of them, I think global politics would me more useful but I’m not sure) which one would be more useful?
  6. Help! I am yet to start the IB, and I cant decide whether to choose Economics or ESS at SL. I would like to study pharmaceuticals at university, so neither of them are to important. So do I go to ESS because it is easier, and max my score, or do economics, because it might be helpful when Im already in a job. Thank you
  7. Hey! I am writing my first article for IA from Microeconomics. I know that I have to focus on this particular unit (not brining up other topic from our syllabus). I am not sure whether what I want to describe is clearly a micro-case. It's an article about imposition of minimum wage in Ontario, the potential effect of which would be job losses. As the topic is a microeconomic one, I'm not sure whether the solution that I aim to propose is (unemployment is a part of MACROeconomy in the syllabus). I was thinking about offering subsidies to firms to increase the production and therefore, the demand for workers? But I'm not sure. Thanks for your opinions
  8. Can someone please grade my IA for me and give feedback. My conclusion is very weak and I feel like my explanations are mediocre. Reply if you are willing to help and I will share a link
  9. Hi, I am currently in MYP5, going into DP1 soon. I am wondering if the Economics IB course is required to be taken if I wish to study Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Business Management, etc. in Universities in Canada/America. I am currently studying in Sweden. I am also taking Math Studies.

  11. My friend and I coincidently chose the same topic for our IA and wrote our commentaries on it. But our articles are different, is there a need for changing the topic?
  12. Hi, Is my research question for an extended essay in economics to specific: "To what extent are hairdressers in *area* involved in gender price discrimination?" Please let me know!! Regards
  13. Okay so basically, I am doing an I.A on predicting the price of Ethereum, a crytocurrency, in 2018. It is very much like predicting a share price of a stock market, and I am having trouble with what to do with my data. I don't know how to use standard deviation and other things to draw conclusions, or even know how to make a normal distribution out of this. Please help
  14. Im a student in Sweden with the subjects; English A HL Economics HL History HL Math SL Swedish A SL ESS SL I'm very sure that I want to apply to an University in the UK, and study Economics. A school I'm very keen on is LSe (London School of Political and Economical Science). Courses of my interest; BSc Philosphy and Economics BSc Economics BSc Econometrics and Mathematical Economics They generally require International Baccalaureate: Diploma with 38 points including 7 6 6 at Higher level, including 7 in Mathematics Do they mean that it's a must to have a 7 in Math HL, or does a 7 in Math SL suffice? IF that's the case, is there any way to take an A exam (UK) in Maths? (My school doesn't offer Math HL)
  15. Now at the start of my 2nd term, 2nd year, I'm facing a choice... I'm very sure that i want to study an Economics course at a "better" University, One thing that I noticed (and I hope, not to late) is that both LSe (London School of Political Science and Economics), University of Cambridge and -Oxford requires Math HL (a score of 6 and 7) (LSe seems to accept Math SL but prefer HL) [Correct me if Im wrong] I have Math SL, and Math HL isn't offered at my School but I've seen that you can take Online course, at Pamoja (Fee: initial $300, and later $1000). The fee is something Im probably going to be forced to cover myself. Is there any chance at getting into LSe, either BSc Economics and Ecometrics, BSc Philosophy and Economics with an overall score of say 40, filling the requirements of 7 6 6, and Math SL? Or if Im going to switch to Math HL, is it Worth it? Is Pamoja good? My math ability is medium (Lack a good Foundation, havent taken Math seriously during a notable part of school, and I'm maybe to optimistic of achieving such a good Math HL grade needed for LSe or overestimating my Math ability or how diligent I am), but I'm very studious and isn't afraid to start and study very much now. By switching to Math HL I would also be a half year behind in that course and havent and idea of how big the difference is between Math SL and HL Otherwise, what is the "best" University in the UK that accepts an IB student with; 40 Points 7 7 6, or 7 6 6 (Economics HL, History HL and English A) Math SL 6 or 7 (If I would achieve such good grades) Thanks for any answers! Edit: I could also be focused on applying to a "more prominent" University...
  16. Hey everyone. So next year I’m going into the IB with- English A Literature, Chinese B, Economics, Chemistry, Maths HL and Physics. I really wanted to do Film HL but I thought it’s better to keep my options open and do two sciences instead as I would like to study engineering or medicine in uni. So im just wondering, would doing HL maths, physics and chemistry be way too much? I really love maths and I’m pretty decent at it. I’m also pretty good with managing workloads and im really interested in sciences but I still want to get a good final grade. Or would it be better to swap HL chemistry for HL Economics? Thanksss
  17. In my school, you have to submit a World Studies EE proposal, and I have no idea what to submit, but I know that I most likely want to do something around the areas of Maths and Economics. What are some potential concepts/ideas that combine these two disciplines together and do you have any sources for them. I genuinely am considering this option since I like both the subjects, but have no idea what to research on.

  19. I am in year 11 and I am doing AQA GSCE Psychology, which I really am not enjoying. I get A's and a few A*'s. I started doing Economics GSCE but changes to Psychology within the first two weeks because our teacher was extremely bad, meaning I have no prior economics knowledge. I'm extremely oriented towards humanities and my math isn't that good. I want to study Politics or Law in university. Right now, I really don't want to do Psychology for IB (we need to choose our subjects by next week) and I have a read a bit of Economics and it seems really interesting. My strong point is my memory. SO 1)How hard is it to get a 7 in HL econ? 2)Should I do it? (taking into consideration all of the above) 3)Will the fact that I have a strong memory help me ? 4)Will I get a disadvantage because of my really average math skills? 5)Anything other you want to advise me
  20. Does anyone know the ib avg. or the requirements to get accepted into the PEARL Programme at Keio University in Tokyo? I've contacted the admissions office but they only replied saying that they don't have any "cut-off" scores, and I was wondering if anyone knew a friend or student who got accepted to Keio PEARL.
  21. Hey guys! So I was earlier doing a micro economics EE, which had to be discarded because Primary data was becoming a problem. Now My teacher suggested that I do a development economics ee because it'll be quicker. Can someone please help me out with the topic and the structure?

    Recommendation letters

    Hi, I'm thinking to applying to British universities for the course of accounting and finance. I was initially thinking to have my economics teacher write my recommendation letter but I read on the page from LSE for accounting and finance that you would be assessed on high numeracy skills and on strong analytical skills. So, I started to think that maybe I should get my maths teacher write my recommendation letter. I have good relationship with both the teachers and I take the 2 subjects as my HL courses, but I am doing better in Economics than in maths. What do you guys think?? Any suggestion/advice is very much appreciated!!
  23. I plan to do my Extended Essay on Economics, specifically price discrimination. Please share your thoughts on my Research Question and suggest how I can make it better.RQ : To what extent does the price discrimination that exists in the Cafes in Bukit Jelutong affects the consumer’s demand?I’ve noticed that the local Cafes where I live in, has a common practice of price discrimination for either students through student discounts or happy hours where any meals bought at a specific time is offered at a lower price. Being someone who enjoys these price discrimination, it has made me wonder how effective it actually is. Do these cafes actually experience higher customer traffic when such price discrimination is implemented? I plan to test this through analyzing whether the price discrimination leads to higher demand of the good.
  24. Hi! I'm considering taking econ SL or HL. I think I would like the subject but I'm not good t maths and I'm wondering if this would hinder to success in the subject. I found SL maths in preIB quite difficult and I'm going to take studies in the IB. How big of a role does maths play in econ and is there a difference in the amount of maths between SL and HL? Thanks already in advance!
