  1. Can anyone please help me with this For my Extended Essay, I plan to do research on the business/economic aspect of football. As football is becoming more of a business in the modern day, and many decisions are business motivated it is what i plan to research. However, the issue is that along with checking in with my supervisor we realized that the Business Management EE is more an analysis of an organization making a decision or activities of the firm and that business tools would need to be used. Also, we could not find how we would apply this topic to the Economics IB syllabus. Examples of what I would wish to study are analyzing China’s recent activity in the football market and their 50 point development plan for football in China or the expansion of the world cup to 48 teams. There is nothing specific under this topic I wish to do my EE in and any thing that I can find suitable to do my EE related to this topic will be great.

  3. Hi! I urgently need help in finding an article that links any government policy (fiscal or monetary) to unemployment for my macroeconomics IA! Any article from 2016 would work!
  4. Hello! I'm a tenth-grade student planning on doing the IBDP for my junior and senior year. As we are beginning our second semester soon, we are required to pick out our subjects for IB. I had a couple of concerns as when I told people about the subjects I'm intending to take, they said I would face a hard time. I'm hoping to study engineering at university, hopefully, either chemical and biomolecular engineering. I'm also hoping to get into a top university as it would help me so much! The subjects I'm planning on doing are; -Physics HL -Math HL -Chemistry HL -Economics HL -English A Lit SL -Arabic B SL As you can see I really don't want to spend time on languages and I clearly want to focus on sciences and maths. If you have any concerns or advice I could use, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thank you
  5. Im starting with IB in next year and my schools says that i have to choose 3 HL and 3 SL So far i've made up my mind about Maths SL,Spanish SL,English language SL,Biology HL and Business HL i have to select one more HL subject and ive narrowed it down to econ and psychology if it were up to me i would select either of these at SL but i dont have a choice. Im doing economics in igcse right now and im good at it but i dont necessarily like it thaaaat much but i like that its simple and most of it is common sense and you dont have to memorize much at least in igcse I find psychology interesting but i've heard you do need to memorise alot and i think i would get fed up with it in like 2 months aahahaha since i dont like it much either I dont know what i want career wise in the future but i know definitely its going to involve biology and/or business (its weird i know) it would help sooooo much if you could tell me which one is worth taking at HL and like more interesting and stuff THANKS ALOT
  6. For our Economics IA, my teacher has given the class the article that we're meant to write the commentary on. So we're all writing about the same article- I've only just started eco so this could be normal, but from what I've heard this isn't right and it just feels weird too. Any advice? Just looking for a third-party confirmation that this is/is not legit.

  8. Hi, Next year is my first year of IB. I've decided I will do Economics as it is a subject that really interests me. Unfortunately Economics in the current system I'm in is a major bum subject so in the past I've elected not to do it(I've looked at the textbook it's literally a whole year of supply and demand curves). I'm interested in covering a broader range that i believe IB provides (correct me if I'm wrong) I'm not worried about SL, however I'm exploring the possibility of doing it as a HL course. Does HL require prior knowledge? Do you think I can manage, not having done economics before (I have an understanding of the basic concepts, I just haven't been taught it in a class) Any feedback on your experience with IB Economics would be really helpful. Thank you
  9. What is a better subject to choose for the Extended Essay if I thinking of applying to law? Unfortunately, I don't have History HL. Economics HL English B HL Geography HL Russian A
  10. So I'm currently working on my EE on economics. My RQ is: 'to what extent does the price discrimination used by Singapore Airlines affect the demand for Singapore Airlines plane tickets?' The thing is, to answer the RQ, I need data regarding SIA's PED but I can't access it. So I have to tweak my RQ, so I can answer it using the data that is accessible. But I don't have any ideas what to change the RQ into.......somebody pls help... the data that I currently hv include: SIA's monthly & yearly revenue, load factor, available seats, passenger yield, sales in advance of carriage, passenger revenue by route region etc.
  11. Do you think that I can get to Law with these subjects? I don't have History HL, it sucks. I won't change Geo to History because it is too late, but do you think I need to change ESS to Biology SL? Geography HL Economics HL English B HL ESS SL Maths SL Russian A SL
  12. Hey is there a site or some kind of resource for real life examples for every chapter?
  13. So I'm in my second semester of my preparation year and I now have to decide what subjects I want. I want to study medicine so therefore I have decided to study both chem and bio HL, I still need to decide what group 3 subject I want and at what level. I can pick from history, phsycology and economics all at both SL and HL, which one would you recommend?
  14. Doing my EE in economics. Could I do competiton between Asian food importers? OR i could do competition of Indian restaurants.
  15. Hi guys. I have already looked through lots of ee on econs and I found out that most students did their ee on market structure, e.g. to what extent is ... operating in a perfect competition? If I were to do my ee on market structure, will it seem to be lacking originality which IB examiners are looking for?
  16. Hi guys! (Just to give you some background about me : I am very interested in economics but my school does not offer it in group 6. So I sacrificed it in order to take history at group 3 which is a recommended subject for a law degree.) I do not have in-depth knowledge in econs but I studied econs in IGCSE(which is why I developed an interest in econs). I would like to do an ee on econs but I was intimidated by this :"the more background a student has in the subject, the better the chance he or she has of writing a good extended essay. Choosing to write the extended essay in a subject that is not being studied as part of the Diploma Programme often leads to lower marks" quoted from Extended essay guide. Any advice or similar experience on this matter ? Thank you very very much .
  17. Hi, its my first time writing here, so i don't really know how this works. Its my first year of IB and in two weeks i have my mid terms. I really want to prepare for my exams and i tried to google some Paper 3 economics practice questions, however, i couldn't find any. I already did all the questions that cover the material we did in class until now (demand and supply, equilibrium, elasticity), but there were only three questions and i feel its not enough. I really struggle with paper 3, i feel like paper 1 its easier because you can explain your ideas more clearly. So my question for you is, where could i find some more practice? If you have some practice worksheets, please help me
  18. Hello, so my supervisor recommended this research question to me: To what extent can microfinancing in the Philippines help women and families escape the poverty trap? I personally think this is way to broad. Help?
  19. How would I go about structuring an EE in market competition? I have been struggling to come up with a topic, but have several ideas. If you think one is good or have another Idea i beg you to post it, and how I should go about to get my data. IDEAS I could do how the development of a region in my area has increased demand of educational services, leading to production of a school, however causing student numbers of another to drop drastically, due to lower fees, and easier to get to (its close to the new suburb) My local shops have 1 smoothie shop and i could do to what extent is this a monopoly OR i could do to what extent do food stalls in the Eatery OR clothes shops display characteristics of a market in perfect competition. We recently had a large shopping brand enter my city. I could do how this effects demand at the other stalls, and what potential does this shop have to become a monopoly and say how it effects other substitutes from entering the market. Thank you guys sooo much for posting stuff. You are the best!!!
  20. I am wondering if this would be a good subject combo: HL Economics HL Biology HL English (not sure yet if I want lang & lit or lit) SL Math SL Finnish SL Chemistry Unfortunately I have no idea where I want to study after the IB, or what I want to study. I am wondering if these seem like subject choices that wouldn't close too many doors for me. The thing that troubles me the most is if it is "useless" to take HL bio without taking HL chemistry with it. I don't enjoy chemistry that much, but then again I've always had horrible teachers which has drawn me away from the subject itself. Though in the IB I would have a new teacher. I really don't know if I should take chemistry at all or if it is important. Thank you for any replies in advance
  21. Where can i get an ib economics HL study guide
  22. I'm in Year 11 MYP right now and we have to make our subject selections for DP very soon. In order to get into the degree I want to do I'll need at least a 43/45, which I know is crazy hgih - but hey you gotta have dreams. I need advice on what subjects are the easiest to score 7s in, because I could swap around some stuff with sciences and humanities. See the list below: HL - Language A: Eng lang lit, Economics, Geography SL - Maths, Mandarin Ab initio, Biology ? I'm a diligent student, so would work hard, but I also want to have a life :')
  23. Are repair services considered to be merit goods
  24. Hi! So I'm coming up to the end of year 10, and have gotten textbooks for IB. I would really like to study ahead in the holidays, especially for economics, a subject I have had no experience with. As I have had no experience, I have no idea how to start studying. The textbook I have is Economics for the IB Diploma, published by Cambridge. If anyone has any recommendations, tips or any experience at all related to this, please let me know!! Thank you
