  1. Hey, im new here and I need some help. I asked my supervisor for it but... let's say he wasn't in the mood for that, I want to begin my EE but I'm not sure if my topic fits in the categories of the guide. Please, any recommendations, criticism or approvals are welcomed. The research question is " How far the jew idiosincrasy is reflected on the language used in the graphic novel Maus". I think this fits in category 2 but please help, i'm very lost :'c

    Hey guys, I have no idea what to do for CAS. I feel like I have my creativity portion covered, but I have nothing to do for Activity or Social Service. I don't want to do something small and generic, but I also don't want to spend too much time on it. Please help!

  4. What is the difference between a fully authorized IB programme and a school that is an IB Candidate? Does it make an impact on whether or not I get my diploma or the education in general?
  5. Hi! Results day is coming up quick, so I was wondering how everyone thinks they did? Some of my friends think they'll have to retake... Did anyone think some of the exams were too hard? I've heard a lot of complaints about physics and maths...
  6. Hey guys, I just made my account to ask questions regarding my subject choices. I am interested in computer science and engineering so I want subjects that keep these choices open. My thoughts are: 1) Computer Science HL Maths HL English B HL Business Management SL Greek SL Physics SL 2) Maths HL Physics Hl German HL ESS SL Business management SL Greek SL which one would be better? My level of German is B2-C1 so I won't have a problem.
  7. Hi, I’m currently in pre-IB and I have to choose my IB courses this week. The 5 subjects that I’m interested in are: -English A Lit/Lang HL -Psychology HL -Biology HL -Swedish B SL -Math studies SL ( I struggle with maths ) For my last SL subject, I’m deciding between Global politics or Chemistry. I wanted to take ESS but there are many limitations unfortunately. I think I perform well in Chemistry but I’m a bit worried about the maths. I plan to study psychology/nutrition after IB in Canada. Thank you for your time!

  9. Hello! I start grade 11 this fall, and i wish to study International Law in university. What subjects should I take? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hello. Currently under a ton of work, and I have been considering moving from the IB Diploma to courses. Effectively cutting away EE, and TOK. Is it ever too late to do this? Is it recommended? Has anyone done this before? Thank you, hope someone can help!
  11. Hello everybody, I want to ask you for advice. I am currently doing the IB DP, and my subjects are Czech A (SL), English B (HL), Economics (SL), Physics (HL), Chemistry (HL) and Math (SL). I was thinking if I should do the IB certificate instead of the diploma. I want to work as a chemical engineer, and so the languages and economy are useless for me. I've heard that in the IB certificate you can choose a number of subjects you want to do, so I would choose high levels physics, chemistry, and math. Our school does not teach HL math, which is why I have just SL. I've also heard that you do not need to do ToK, EE, and CAS. My question is, should I do the IB Diploma or the IB Certificate? Thanks for any advice
  12. Hello, When does the IB start grading stuff that you've submitted to IBIS, like the Extended Essay, TOK, IB Visual Arts material, and your English Written Assignment? etc. Does this happen before the exams are over? Like, are they marking everything now? In addition, if you, let's say get caught plagiarising on any of the above, do you get contacted? Or do you just fail your diploma? I'm pretty sure they contact you before your diploma is out to justify. Correct? Regards
  13. I'm taking my third chance for re-take this May, throughout the school year some teachers thought that we were able to retake one subject up to three times, but they didn't say the actual retake amount. So, without knowing this I didn't take the one subject that I failed until now, my last chance. I'm certain I'm going to fail it because I have been working, not studying as much. I have already been in contact with a few good universities in the US, which said that they do not care about my IB diploma they only want the SAT results. That was before I knew I was going to fail, does anyone know if there is still a chance that even with the fail diploma, they will still not look at the results? Or does anyone know if there is any possibility at all to retake the exam again, like an exception?
  14. I'm just starting my Extended Essay and I'm comparing and contrasting Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and A Thousand Splendid Suns By Khaled Hosseini. I want to focus on the relationships between the characters in the novels- the relationship between Olanna and Kainene and the relationship between Laila and Mariam. The reason I chose the two novels is because I wanted to specifically focus on female relationships and how they are presented during a time of war (as both books have a pre, during and post war timeline) and how it affects the dynamics of familial relationships. I've been trying to formulate a good research question for this but I can't and I would really like some help on that if anyone is willing.
  15. Hey guys, i was wondering which of my 7 IB subjects would count towards my final score (out of 45). Do i have the choice of choosing the one with a better grade?
  16. I am currently enrolling in the diploma program and I'm taking math hl, physics sl and chem hl. I am wondering should i worry about the universities later and focus on my subjet choices that will get me through ib, or select my subject choices based on my targeted uni? Help
  17. I was wondering if practicing at a gun range would count as CAS since it's something I frequently do?
  18. Dear historians, As to the authoritarian states (20th century), within the World History topics (seen on History Guide), I studied at school Hitler and Stalin. As their from the same region, I kinda needed another one, If I am going to prepare myself for the "two tyrants comparison question". Yeah there s always a question in which they ask you to compare and discuss two tyrants from different regions as to a certain aspect (propaganda, use of force, religion, role of women in their kingships, etc.). So,as my teacher isn't going to lecture any more tyrants (he told me that) because he thinks we have given enough on other topics and we are prepared to answer another questions, I was kinda thinking on studying either Mao Zedong, Juan Perón (Argentina), Fidel Castro or even Julius Nyerere (Tanzania). I know that it may sound kinda wired my interest in these eccentric cultures, however if they can be utilized in a comparison with the same old usual Hitler or Stalin, why not study them? Hence, I really need to study one more tyrant. You re probably going to tell me Mao Zedong is the best to compare with Stalin or Hitler, notwithstanding, can you advise me on whats the easiest to study? I don't have much time, I am going for my 2nd year and I also have to study other themes and subjects, so time urges! Who studied some of these, can you please tell me your experience and so what was the easiest and better for a comparison with Stalin or Hitler? Regards, Richard
  19. Hi there, I know this is stupid. I am aware of that. I am going for my 2nd year (senior year, whatever) and I am doing my EE in Film. I did not take it as a subject as my school does not offer it. However, I am really enjoying it, in spite of some hurdles on the topic choice. I feel like I have a knack for it, I mean I am a creative person and I guess that the fact that I have the ability to look at film knowledge in a more imaginative way. I know it is because I am confident, and writing about Film, like in the EE, is easier than actually creative and giving birth to an artistic oeuvre like a film: to comprehend techniques, how they are used and how to use them is easier than actually doing it in such a witty way that it will be artistically correspondent and linked with the storyline. The close up cams, the narrator voice, the character design all of that.. simply awesome. I would be lying if I would tell you that I want to have nothing to do with Film. Actually I hope my aspirations actually come true and make Filming more than just an occupation of a desolated artist who s never achieved what he wanted. This being said, I was thinking to start attending online classes of IB Film. I am going for my Second Year and it is too late I know, but if I would be attending Film (online) I could get rid of Economics, which is a pain in the ass for me. Just thinking that I will ditch Economics, a smile beckons within my lips. Honestly. If I could choose now a subject from the Arts group I could get rid of Economics, and hence have 1 subject from each group (btw I only chose Economics because my school is poor in subjects and it was that or two of the sciences group, so...). Do you, Film students, think it is too risky? Or impossible to do Film in one year? I know that there is a presentation and an Individual Project I must do and a short movie I guess, tho with the EE and the books I bought from Filming and Film Studies I guess I could swiftly get the knowledge that is "missing". If you agree or think I should go on with this, which would be very beneficial for me as Economics is the only subject I simply hate, can you recommend me an IB Film teacher who s willing to lecture online classes? Or do you know personally some of your schools? Feel free to comment on my insane delusions, Richard
  20. Hi guys so i am planning to take ib this year and literally this August i will be studying. So i've heard that there is an EE. So will teachers teach you how to write an extended essay or you just have to do it by yourself. I know it is a silly question but every minute i am getting stressed.everyone is saying that ib diploma is quite hard. Maybe you can give me some advices. I was studying i an school where they had igcse system and this looks very complicated. Please help
  21. Hej! This a crucial point in my life. I didn't get the best grades to get into the Uni of my dreams, but I don't feel bad with myself. I went through clinical difficulties through the summer, and had to work part-time to pay for my studies. I also got all of the IB done in 1.5 years because I joined my class late. Anyway, I have a job offer that I really need to take, and therefore I need any form of High School Diploma, regardless of having barely made it to pass. I have 23 points, and fulfill all of the other conditions, otherwise. There's 3 subjects that I scores right on the verge of the mark boundary, for example in History, I got a 3, and got 31 marks. From 32 marks on it would become a 4. The same applies for Literature HL and TOK. I am actually surpised about my TOK essay. I can see that this year new mark boundaries were used for the subject, but still I spent an incredible deal of mental resources toward that essay, so I am going to have it remarked. I got 3 marks from it! So, I am very confident about TOK, but I can only afford to send 2 subjects for revision as for the time being, and have only until September to take my job place. So, the second has to be either Literature HL or History SL. For Literature I got: P1 - 16 (the next mark boundary starts at 18) P2 - 13 (the next mark boundary starts at 15) WA - 10 (the next mark boundary starts at 13) For History I got: P1- 6 (the next mark boundary starts at 8) P2- 10 ( the next mark boundary starts at 12) For TOK I got Essay 3 Presentation 9 As you can see, it only takes one component in either of the three subjects for my diploma to be awarded so I can go on with my life. Please, tell me which two subjects I should choose and if it's possible to do a further Enquire by the end of August when I can pay for it and assuming the other two turn out unsuccessfully. A million thanks!
  22. I am about to enroll the IB DP programme by the end of summer. I am a little concerned about my subject combination for being too rigorous. I am up for a challenge, yet a bearable one. In the future, I would like to study at uni in the US. However, I am not sure in what area I may want to study in. But I'm leaning towards Economics/Finance and/or environmental sciences. (Hence why I have both Econ and Bio at HL). Overall, I was wondering if you could share any thoughts on what you think about my subject combination. Is it reasonable considering my future plans? Also, as English is my second language, would you suggest me to do B or A2 at HL. Note that I will be having Swedish A2 SL as well. But please leave some thoughts based on experience regarding English B and A2 at HL. I am not that much into literature, to be honest I hardly ever read. But with the right mindset I could still be willing to learn the "literature" part, I just don't want to struggle too much with it since English (language-wise) has otherwise (so far) been a strong subject of mine. Could it in general make it easier to have 2 subjects in A2, since the structure may be similar, or is it easier to just have one A2 and the other one as B HL as the workload perhaps becomes less (?). Subject combination: English B / A2 HL Economics HL Biology HL Math SL Swedish A2 SL Physics SL Also, what topic did you write your EE on? Simply curious as I have no idea what EE's are all about. Oh and btw, is it possible to write your EE on a combination of two subjects? Thanks a lot!!
  23. I am about to enter the IB DP programme by the end of this summer. Having to choose subjects, I am pondering wether to study English B or English A2 (language and literature). Swedish is my first language and I will study Swedish A2. English is my second language but I am fairly good at it and it has always been one of my stronger subjects. However, I am concerned with the "literature" part in A2. Reading isn't of my greater interests, so having exams related to literature could stand in the way for me to get a 7. However, as the course also includes "language" it might not be as hard? But I obviously don't know much about the subject as I haven't started the IB, therefor, I would appreciate it if you could share some thoughts based on experience. Btw, my other HL subjects are Economics and Biology. Thanks a lot!
