  1. Hey guys, Im not sure whether or not IB goes into Permutations and Combinations too deeply or even at all. I've asked my seniors and other IB schools if they did this topic, for which i got a reply saying no. IB HAS stated Permutations and Combinations in their 2016 syllabus so does that mean it's going to be in IB diploma exam? btw i start the IB program in 2 days
  2. Hi Im considering taking Chemistry as a subject in IB because I am yet to start school but I am not too sure about it as I did not take Chemistry as a subject for my IGCSE/GCSE. I wonder what you guys think about this and it would be really helpful if i could have a general comparison of chemistry as a subject in IB and IGCSE Thanks a lot
  3. Okay, my chapter 2 exam is coming up now... I am just wondering what to expect most on the test, because I heard that there are some concepts in the new IB curriculum that are less important than others. So far, I have learned: Atom Theory(model theories), Nuclear Reaction, Geologic Dating (Decay), Electromagnetic Spectrum, Continuous Spectrum, Rydberg Calculations, Electron Configuration, Calculation (Wavelength, Period, Frequency), and Ionization Energy. I have heard that there is more focus on the concept-based subjects which requires explaining, but I want some reassurance. How should I prepare? Thanks everyone!
  4. Our TOK teacher is not a teacher, he has no idea what TOK is neither do I and my whole class. The TOK Essay is due in a month and I have literally no clue of exactly what to do with the TOK essay. Is it like a normal essay? How do I use the TOK terms? Do I make an argument? Do I need a knowledge question? Do I need to cite everything I say? Like personal knowledge or shared knowledge? And yes, I'm concentrated during class it's not my fault that I don't know what to do. I've read many guides and sample essay and I still don't know exactly what to do. Plz help. THANKS!
  5. Hello IB folks, I will go straight into my topic. So, my stoichiometry unit exam is in 2 days... (Im grade 11 btw) and I am so stuck on some of these questions.... I am very much familiar with the sub topics (molar masses/conversions/solution/dilution/etc.), but when it comes to actual stoiciometry word problems, I am just stumped... I find it so hard to solve them because often times, I don't know where to start or the approach to the questions...(although not all of them...) I am sitting here with a batch of sample word problems, and they are just so hard to get by because they are worded all differently... And most of all, Im so scared because this is my first big chem test and the past averages for this test were 60% in the past years! I would like to seek help mainly on steps or procedures(if there are any...) to solving these word problems from you friends Any helpful tips or experiences with this unit would be greatly appreciated as well. It's not that I don't know the concepts, but I am having a hard time with the approach. Thank you very much all!
  6. Hello, I have recently received two unsuccesful Uni applications, In a chosen field of nursing. My top applications being rejected, hits hard especially knowing entry requirements were bare minimum (24 points) . ( I'm predicted 35 -36) I would really appreciate some advice; do I need to have work experience in a hospital?
  7. I've been working on my biology EE and I have already gotten a lot of work into it and I don't want to restart the whole thing again like I did before. I was wondering, is it really necessary to do an experiment for a biology EE to pass and receive the diploma? What is the maximum score that I could expect if I do not conduct an experiment? If possible, could I look into the raw data of other studies and maybe do some calculations from there? *I'm writing an EE on GMOs and their effects on biodiversity*
  8. Hey guys, My school is terrible at explaining the way CAS works, and I'll be starting IB this year (in summer at the moment). I have heard that in order to "fulfill" CAS, you basically have to tick off objectives, which are given by the school and vary by institution? Can someone give me a basic explanation on how CAS works, and how not to fail it? Sorry for being a noob, Thanks!
  9. Hey guys (IB Survival), I recently had a IB year 11 chemistry test on the topic "atomic structure". One of the questions in the test completely baffled me and due to this I could not get full marks or a 7 out of 7 for my year 12 chemistry grades. The question was (may be worded wrong since I don't really remember): "How many periods in a proton?" Can anyone help??
  10. So I'm calculating the length of a road going around the hill and I'm dealing with both elevation and length of the road. Separately it's very simple to calculate, all I do is plot the points, get a progression mean line and use integration to find the distance. The problem comes into play when I have to use both these graphs. I have a vague idea that I have to somehow relate these two graphs onto one single graph but I am clueless I'm not asking anyone to directly answer the question, but just guide me in a way for possible solutions
  11. My IA topic is on roller-coasters and i am afraid that its too physics based and there is not enough math to support it. I am confused about how to format it and basically what to do. My teacher never gave us a guideline...
  12. This is my school's first year of IB and although we have made it through, but my peers and I finished off in complete confusion on what to do with the EE. I was able to come up with a rough idea to write about the effect of GMOs (foods) on people susceptibility to diseases (disease(s) not yet specified) but failed to make the question precise. On top of that, I don't have the slightest idea on whether the question falls in the field of ESS, Bio, World Studies, or any other subject. Thus, I do not know which format to follow. I know that there would be no way in which I could conduct my own experiments so I would have to rely solely on information that I can find on sources such as books, websites, and documentaries. May someone please clarify these things for me? I am pretty sure that I have got everything else handled, it is just that these problems above are preventing me from moving further on. I appreciate all the help received to help me clarify this situation.
  13. I do Business and Management(SL) I'm meant to create an action plan for my IA by Thursday but I'm confused about how I should be doing this? What should I be including in my action plan? I still havent picked my business and research question.. So I have to do that first. But I would highly appreciate it if someone could explain what the action plan should entail.
  14. Please help me! I am supposed to design my chemistry IA, but I honestly have NO IDEA on how to even start. Chemistry is my worst subject and I have a lot of trouble in understanding it. I always try so hard on my IA's but I always end up making B's. I have to decide on one factor that affects the rate of a reaction to investigate in my design lab IA and this lab is supposed to be easily reproducible. Here's my IA guidelines: Aspect 1 includes: Formulating a focused problem/research question and identifies the relevant variables. Aspect 2: Designs a method for the effective control of the variables. Aspect 3: Develops a method that allows for the collection of sufficient relevant data Can some one please help me? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time!
  15. I am a junior, currently taking - HL: Math, Econ, Lang&Lit SL: Physics, Chem, Spanish Ab initio I've never taken an AP course before, but my school offers them. Although I do not plan on majoring in Engineering in college, I kinda want to take "AP Computer Science A" next year (grade 12). I haven't taken Computer Science before but it seems like such a vital subject to learn to keep with the times. I am interested but don't know if I can keep up with it; considering college applications, EE, IAs and exams, is it a viable option? Also, do you know if AP Computer Science A is alright for a complete beginner? Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks a ton!

  17. Hello, i take physics SL, English A1 SL, Maths SL, Chemistry HL, Business HL, Arabic B HL, i was wondering if you could tell me the possible courses i can take in university with these subjects, i was sort of thinking of taking business as a course in university, but it seems very light considering what the good grades that i get, and i could take it anyways later. Thank you in advance
  18. Hi everyone! I'm a first year IB student and so far my school has covered ways of knowing and about to give us the titles for our presentations... However, I feel like I'm confused about everything that is in TOK. The concepts seem to be very intertwined to one another and every now and then I find myself doubting what I've already learnt and trying to put everything together. Is there any way I can make TOK more simple, enjoyable and relatable? Thank you
  19. Hello, I have a chemistry SL Kinetics Design Lab due tomorrow The formula given is You will be investigating a factor that affects the rate of the following reaction: CaCO3(s) + 2H+(aq) ïƒ Ca 2+(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l) o Identify a problem you wish to solve and frame your problem as a hypothesis, you o Identify your variables (MV, RV, and relevant CVs) o Design an experiment that will enable you to test the validity of your hypothesis. must be able to explain the hypothesis. Assume you are given any equipment you need (available in any high school laboratory).  Be sure you procedure answers your problem statement AND is designed to control other variables that might affect the outcome. These are the guidelines, honestly, chemistry is not one of my strongest subject, and it would be great if anyone can give me some helpful tips thanks
  20. I'm in 11th grade in the United States, and I've just started the IB Diploma Program. It started out well enough, but now I feel as if I'm drowning in school work. I know that my teachers are disappointed in me, but I just am completely choking, and I don't know how to get myself out of this hole into which I've dug myself. Between IAs and my daily homework, as well as swimming on my school's team, and taking piano lessons, I feel like I cannot complete anything. And for my art class I'm supposed to be doing extra work outside of class... I don't know how to get myself back to an acceptable place with the workload that I have on a daily basis. I'm considering dropping, even though I truly enjoy my classes, and I really don't want to drop. I really just don't know what to do. Please help. Any advice is welcome.
  21. Hello! I´ve just been introduced to the ToK presentations, but my teacher is useless and he has not given me any actual explanation about what it consists of. I´m trying to think up a title/question for the presentation, but i´m confused about what it has to be about. Is it a problem? An issue? I´m also not sure how to structure it. Some sites that I visit say that I need to have two sides of an argument, whilst others just say to relate it to a real life situation. Fell free to include any other tips! Thank you so much!
  22. so i am basically done with my EE so this is probably a bad time to ask.. but my ee is on film, my RQ question is "an analysis of the evolution of women in the horror film genre from the 60's to current day" well, something along those lines, thats not the exact wording. but would this fall under film directly?? bc i don't speak about camera angles and lighting etc. so idk hellpppp
  23. I know I'm supposed to submit three (?) creating projects, an MLI, and perform for a total of 20 minutes, but when is everything due? My music teacher has just moved away and never really specified. My new teacher knows even less. Help.
  24. Hey there! So I'm in a fix: I've chosen the relatively new World Studies to do my Extended Essay in, and I understand that it requires a topic of "contemporary global significance". Since I'm particularly interested in criminology, and anything related to it, I've decided on this question: "To what extent has development in scientific technology impacted the legal justice system in Pune, India". I will then link it to the global society, possibly comparing it to the impact of it in the United States, for example. The interdisciplinary subjects would be Biology and ITGS. Does this question provide sufficient scope? Or is it not worth pursuing? And would interviewing lawyers/judges in the state be a good source of primary information? Thank you!!
  25. Hi everyone, So I'm currently working on an Extended Essay in Italian B. At the moment I go to school in Italy near the border with Slovenia and I wanted to do an EE about minorities in Italy and the topic I decided on with my teacher was comparing the treatment of Slovene and French minorities in Italy. So the research question would be something like: "Is there a significant difference between the way the Italians treat the Slovene minority in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia and the way they treat the French minority in Val d'Aosta?" I would look at the number of Slovene and French schools, their representation in government, job opportunities in both areas etc and then look for reasons behind the way the minorities are treated (eg historical reasons etc) However, I'm not sure which category this topic would fall into as it is sociocultural but it is not based around a cultural artefact and it doesn't impact on the language. Unless a minority is a cultural artefact??? So do you think this is an appropriate group 2 EE or should I rethink it? Also, if this topic does not work, how could I manipulate the topic of minorities in Italy to fit into the IB criteria? Also, I find their definition of "cultural artefact" very vague? Anybody able to clarify at all? Thanks )))
