  1. hey guys, so I was checking course enrollment and the degree requirement/ "anatomy of a glendon BA" manual at York and it mentioned a "bilingual requirement"? does this mean that french is mandatory? If so, my ab initio level isn't going to help me much 😕
  2. Hi...I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I know I'm going to be studying sciences in university, but I'm not exactly sure what type of science I'm getting into. It's a bit stressful because I have my own preferences, while my parents' disagreement with these preferences make me scared to the bone. I know I want to take Chemistry at Higher Level, but my problem is between biology and physics (+ computer science, but I'd rather NOT get into that.) at HL. You see, I'm studying MYP right now and so far I really enjoy Biology and find it very interesting. As discussed with my careers counsellor, I could take my bachelor in Bio OR Chem and then take my Masters in Biochemistry, which I thought was a great idea because it is two subjects I enjoy (to a certain extent, but I'd also rather NOT get into that). My parents don't think that's a great idea though. My dad says I'm limiting myself wayyyyyyyyy too much (like a mouse hole kind of too much) if I delve straight into my masters after my bachelor. Sure, I get that. Maybe I'll work with my bachelor in Chem for a while. But that's also very limiting, apparently, and my only option is to take Chemistry and Physics/Computer science to get a bachelor in engineering. Except I dread Physics/ I'm not-so-great at it. And I've heard it's a death wish to take it at HL if I'm not ready to put in the effort or enjoy it to the fullest. News Flash: I'm not! (As for computer science, well, I'm not very sure because I've never studied it, but I'd assume I wouldn't be fascinated by the unduly amount of numbers and problem solving that seems to give high-paying jobs all around). The thing is, I'm not going to get into medicine. Not a doctor or radiologist or pharmacist. And Biology is practically a dead end to my parents, very shameful, if I don't want to be a doctor (which, I repeat, I DO NOT). I'm trying to cooperate with my parents by going into sciences (trust me, it's not my first choice), but I'd like to at least do something I like (to some certain extent). However, it seems like unless I get into computer science or Physics (engineering, really, is assumed to be the only job that'll get you some bucks here), I won't be successful. I've been told it's best to cry now and not later, but I'm not sure if that's necessarily true. I think if I take Physics and end up being an engineer I'll be crying 'til the rest of my days. But, at the same time, why should I trust myself? I'm a kid and puberty and hormones and total ignorance makes me rethink my choices in taking Chemistry and Biology at HL. Should I just take Physics and Chemistry and cry in a Ferrari? Sorry for the rambling. I appreciate any and all responses.
  3. Hello everybody, So i did the IB exams may 2017 and I ended up with a final result of 27 points which I am quite pleased with considering how I really struggled throughout the programme and was predicted to fail. However, the only grade I don't like is the grade 2 I got in Maths SL. I really regret taking SL and wish would have taken Studies instead. I am actually going to resit Maths SL and although I have studied, it has been a struggle to do so independently. I am interested in applying for UK unis in 2019 and I have found several unis that accept 27 points. (I want to study architecture). Anyway, my question is, if I don't manage to get a better grade, can they overlook my 2 in Maths? I am thankful for your answers.
  4. How do I make sure I get into Cambridge? Even if I don't get the required grades?
  5. Hello. I'm very confused and I feel like I can't talk to my parents about this anymore or any of my teachers, so I'm trying here. My dilemma: I would say I'm quite wishy-washy in terms of what subject I want to study. I know I want to do something science related, but I don't know what exactly it is at this point. My parents want me to study medicine because their reasoning is that I should go for a job where I won't have to work for anyone (they're against me entering the corporate world and to an extent, I agree with them). Now my problem is that I'm not exactly against doing medicine, there are some aspects that I find interesting - what I'm trying to say is that I'm not absolutely against it, but I'm not sure I would be able to succeed as well. I'm interested in psychology and biomedical research, things like genetics and stem cells. I applied for medicine courses via UCAS, and I applied to Irish universities for med. I'm still waiting to hear back from the Irish universities, but right now all I have is an offer from St. Andrews for psychology with biology (major minor thing) and an offer from an Irish uni for medicine. In terms of the medical offer, they're asking for 6 in chem, math and bio, and the psychology offer they're asking for 6 in bio. I don't know if I can achieve a 6 in chem because I find it quite hard and I've been consistently getting 4 and 5. Now my issue is this: I don't know what to do. I know this is a bit premature considering I haven't done my exams yet, but I have no idea which path to take. I feel like both my parents are contradicting each other and I don't want to talk to my counsellor because, well, there are reasons. Does anyone have any advice? This is really stressing me out to the point where I can't focus on studying for the exams, so I just want to come to some sort of resolution. Sorry this is a bit long and rambly, but I'm really not in the best state of mind right now.
  6. I need some urgent guidance regarding my IB subject choices for next year!!! This is what I've entered; English Lit A HL Economics HL History HL Maths SL Environmental systems and societies SL Mandarin ab initio SL However, I still have the opportunity to make changes so I thought I'd ask for some thoughts on them before I finalise. First of all - do they seem optimal for law at Russel Group/Ivy Leauge unis? English Lit, Economics, Maths and Mandarin are more or less definite so I am left with two concerns; I am considering swapping out History HL to Global Politics HL. Mainly because Global Politics appeared very interesting but also as I reckon History will be much harder to get a good score in. I came to UK boarding school this year which is year 11/5th form so I am doing an accelerated GCSE course - meaning my subject choices for GCSE were limited and I couldn't do the full GCSE for History (I have history lessons for experience but am not sitting exams). On the other hand, though, I know History is well respected by unis and sure would benefit me if I'll study law. Help!!! History HL or Global Politics HL? Second concern - At first I didn't doubt choosing ESS for a second because I just wanted to get rid of the sciences but I have heard a lot recently, even from the teacher of ESS, that it is a soft subject. I got A*s in all my triple science mocks and am predicted A*s as well - so it is not that I would struggle with for example Biology; I just chose ESS purely because I don't find bio/chem/physics interesting. Is it really such a "soft subject" and does it even matter if I want to do law/international relations etc. at uni? if so should I consider biology instead?
  7. If my predicted grade is 27-28 what are my options for universities in the uk,usa,Canada or Australia for business.(naming some universities would be helpful.)
  8. so i just realized i needed chem for engineering, i had assumed that because i was not going to do chemical engineering i would not need chemistry. but universities coming to my school are saying otherwise. so pls its too late to switch to chem, what can i do?
  9. What benefits will I gain if I take 3 languages in the IB Program. (I'm primarily going into English based , or a Law based future career) Will I become more appealing to universities or something?
  10. hey, (English is not my first language so excuse the poor grammar, but I'm sure most people would get what I'm saying here) So I think I am in trouble. I've tried for the past 5 months to solve and understand this issue. Let me tell you the whole story right from the beginning, so I enrolled into IB this year with only two GCSEs in my hand both of which I managed to screw up, D in business and B in math. Now I know I may seem stupid with those grades but I've never cared of school and studies till now and these past 5 months I've been completely reformed. I was forced to be in MATH STUDIES, but I knew I what I wanted to do in the future and that was to be an engineer. So I worked my ass off and got to HIGHER LEVEL MATH through self-studying their topics by myself and taking their monthly tests and ****ing proved the school I wasn't a donkey. After all that, I was happy I got in and satisfied with myself ( this could be an inspirational story to those who think they're dumb just cuz they did badly in one test), but my troubles didn't end there. After some surfing on uni applications for engineering, they all seem to require Math HL and PHYSICS HL!! Ok look I love physics I wish I could do HL but I'm just too far into the school year for them to accept me to join that class. I'm in physics SL btw so there might be a chance they'll accept me? I don't know tbh and its really bugging me. I looked at the difference between HL and SL physics and there is are 4 topics apart. Like srsly I don't get accepted due to not studying 4 chapters? Ok so I've heard of foundation year, but that's a total waste of my time for not doing 4 topics of physics! I'm however prepared for it if there is no option. Also this new school I'm in looks at my GCSE grades and uses them to place me in the right classes, like **** off, Math studies to Math Higher level. Anyways I came to this site for help from people and to see if anyone is in a similar situation as I am. So if u guys have any advice for me and stuff pls do say I really need to solve this issue quickly.
  11. Hey! What do the CalTech Admissions people look for in a candidate? How do I maximise my chances of getting in? Any CalTech Alumni here, I would love your advice.
  12. I'm aiming for relatively high ranked schools (in the 10s for rankings) for engineering in the US or UK but have come to the dreaded time where we have to pick our EE topics. My HLs are Physics, Maths, and Chemistry, but I'm fully aware of how difficult those are, so I'm considering doing English Literature (which I'm more confident about than phy and chem at EE level grades-wise). But will whether or not my topic is relevant to engineering be the tipping factor for universities to accept me, or should I just do Lit and get an A?
  13. Dr.Desiron

    Is it doable?

    Hey, so I just made my choices for DP. HL: Math, Physics, Chemistry SL: English lang & Lit, Biology, Dutch self taught. I have a strong background in all the subjects and I need most subjects for university. But....... Did I seriously just kill myself? I mean will I have to stay up until 4am every single night? Is it even doable? Peace out!!
  14. I am in the second semester of my senior year. I have taken IB Math HL over one and half year(junior year & 1st semester of senior year) In my junior year, IB Math HL was ok and I got 7 on it. However, when we had a new teacher and the course getting hard in the senior year, I feel so frustrated about this class. In the first semester, I spend 80% of my time to study it. I got 6 on it. I decided to take this class because I want to go to engineering school. My classes now: Chem HL, Eng HL, Eco HL, Math HL, Bio SL My SAT score: 1450-Math-790 I feel I am stressed out in the class and loss confidence. Can I stop taking IB Math HL at this point? Will it affect my college application or anything? I got a 5 in this class now.
  15. hey, this is my first post so im kind of not sure how to write these. i was looking at groningen univesity to study physics and im confused on the requirments. my clases are: Math, History, English A lang lit = HL Physics,French Ab, ITGS = SL so im not sure if i can do the course without Physics HL. I cant chnage because of the way my schools time table is set up. if i cant, are there any other good Physics Bachelor programms in europe where i can apply with Physics Sl? cause, from what i understand, Math Hl is more important because Physics is very math based.
  16. 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)
  17. 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...
  18. I've taken Biology, Chemistry and Business management HL along with English Maths and French (ab) SL. I study IB in India and I would like to know about my options. Medical is the first thing to come to mind but that would require Physics and I do not want to take it up. I am planning to study in India because my dad doesn't want me to study abroad for god knows why and I was wondering what course I could take in Indian colleges I am aware that abroad universities do not require Physics for studying medicine
  19. Hello, I paid the application fee for Ryerson University through 105F application already and got my ID MyRyerson account. However, I do not see any portal for submitting IB predicted grades. Does Ryerson not accept IB predicted grades? I also thought I could fulfill my English requirement through my predicted grade of 7 for IB Language and Literature A class. But on most of their webpages for both the subject and the English requirement, they only show the requirements for those who have COMPLETED the IB Diploma but I am due to complete IB this May 2018 and the application is due Feb 1. I am freaking out!! Will I not get accepted?? I have a predicted overall of 40 / 45. Please let me know because I am really confused Thank you
  20. Hi everyone, I would like to know if anybody can tell me about the IB and the American Universities. Does anybody know how many points do you need in order to get to top American universities like Harvard, Yale, UCLA, Berkeley,etc. Is IB therefore considered as priority for admission officers with regards to other high school diplomas? And is AP worth more for US Uni than IB? Thanks
  21. Hi guys! Right now I’m in 11th grade and I was wondering what my chances are in getting into the UC schools + duke and northwestern, I'm even thinking of applying to Stanford and Yale. Both my mom and grandfather went to Yale if that helps... Here are what I’m pretty sure my grade will be like: - physics HL (7) - visual arts HL (6 maybe a 7) - geography HL (7) - French B HL (7) - Math SL (7) - English Lang and lit (5 maybe 6) Basically I could get a 37-41 IB possible, (not counting EE and TOK) but I think I’ll get around a 40 or 41 I have a 4.6 weighted GPA SAT (new): 1490 / 1600 BUT I did very bad on the essay... 5-3-5... extracurriculars: - I’m in the national honors society + will continue next year - yearbook club since last year and will continue next year - I have a job during summer (working at a camp) I’ve been doing this since I was 14 - I’ve played volleyball since 5th grade, i was captain of the JV team in 9th grade, got onto varsity in 10th grade and I’m pretty sure I’ll be captain next year - I’m in band since 5th grade + I went to honour band twice (both both times in middle school) and I am first chair + will be next year
  22. Um...so the problem is below: I am doing a project called The Periodic Graphics of Elements which basically use graphic design/illustration to visualise and introduce chemical elements. Now I have 30 graphics finished out of 118, and when I hit 50, I am planning to submit the project as a supplementary material for universities along with my art portfolio. (You guys can look at those graphics at my program Alchemy: For that project I have received several good recognition, publication, awards and a handful of followers. My teachers say that this is a 'masterpiece' project and I should carry it on. Specifically, my chem teacher mentioned that people will love my passion and hardwork and no one cares about 4 HLs (I have heard about some people say that 4 HLs could show dedication and hard work as well to the adcoms). So what do you guys think? I choose to keep on my project but I would also like to hear you guys opinions Do you guys think unique extracurriculars or dedication towards an extra subject is more important?
  23. Hi, So I'm in 2nd year IB and I planning to apply for the London School of Economics, accounting and finance for 2018 admissions. For accounting and finance, they said on the website they require 38 points, with 6, 6, 6 in HL. I take HL econ, english B and maths, where I am predicted to get 7, 6, 5 respectively. So, because LSE is wanting a 6 in HL maths, and I am only predicted a 5, will I be kicked out immediately? and, if I actually do get a 6 in HL maths in the final exam is the result going to change in the end, like if I make a phone call or something will they consider me on letting me in or not? Thanks!
  24. So....I have been browsing this year's admission discussion thread on Chinese Quora. The strange thing is that I found this year, great ECs actually signal rejection. One girl had perfect IB grades (7.0/7.0) every year and had been an active participant in many organisations. Besides this, she is a writer that had her work published (with thousands hundreds views on social media) and a photographer earning a great deal. She got a straight rejection from one of the Ivies. Another guy, had several national/international awards, features, programs and a 40/42 predicted, also got a rejection from a top 5 school. On CC, a guy with a post published on Huffington post also got a straight rejection from an Ivy. However, those with ECs that are not as strong as them and scores similar to them were admitted from those schools. What does this mean?
  25. The school I'm going to right now is pretty new, our class is going to be the first graduates for the school. So, a new school means no experience, and you can see that with no Math HL offered to students. Well, they actually do now, but last year when I was in DP 1, they didn't offer Math HL, but then they started when I was my second year DP 2. And I wanted to do Engineering, and the university which I want to go to (Technical University of Denmark) accepts IB students who have Physics HL and Math HL. So you can see the problem, I don't have Math HL because the school can't offer it and it's not my fault. But I really want to go that university. Has anyone experience this before? Maybe by having a 7 in Math SL would do? I need help. THANKS!
