  1. Hi, all. With September drawing near, I am scrambling to mentally prepare myself as much as possible for the full diploma program. Truth be told, I am not accustomed to constantly revising my subjects throughout the school year. For some time, I've studied passively rather than actively. I let upcoming tests and exams dictate when I would study. It's a nasty habit and I am aware that this will have to change since I am going into the IB program. I was wondering if any of you have developed daily study schedules that work for you? If so, would you be willing to share? Additionally, I would appreciate some advice as to how to approach my courses in terms of studying. My subjects are as follows: English Literature HL Biology HL Chemistry HL Psychology HL German Ab Initio SL Math SL Thank you.
  2. I am in summer holidays approaching Year 13 now and I really want to grab the time to prepare for next year. I am at a 37 now and I really want to get a 40 or above. Does any one have tips on how to get a 7 in the following subjects that I take? Especially Film and Global Politics! I literally have no idea how in the world I am supposed to revise or get good grades in those!! - Chinese Language and Literature HL - English Literature SL - Maths SL - Design Technology SL - Global Politics HL - Film Studies HL Thanks a million!
  3. I have to start doing my IOP and I get to choose from "Hamlet" by Shakespeare, "1984" by George Orwell and "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelly. I chose "Hamlet" and I was thinking about doing my topic on Horatio. The topic would be about what I think the sequel to "Hamlet" would be and what would happen in it. I want to make my presentation really interesting so any suggestions? Also, is my topic a valid one for the IOP?

  5. Hello all, I am new to this forum and am unsure whether this is the formal way of posing a question. I have been thinking about doing my extended essay in English Literature, but I'm not sure whether the topic I have chosen is suitable. I would like to either look at the use of scripts to allow for creative freedom in cinematography and plot has changed over film history, or morals and humanity as a metaphysical theme of the film "Blade Runner" (I can link this to the book the film is based on - "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep"). However, it feels as though this is possibly straying from what is acceptable to write about for English Lit (I am aware IB has a film course). Does anybody know if this is ok to write about or whether I need to take a new approach? Thanks in advance.
  6. Im a year 11 student and I would like to know whether my combination is good or whether I should expect any obscure workload and what to watch out for. I take the following subjects- HL Computer Science HL Economics HL Business Management SL English Literature SL French B SL Math (not studies) SL Physics Is this a good combination for any field? If so can you please mention because I am not sure of what to do in the future. Thank you!! >o<
  7. i take: HL global politics HL film HL chinese language & literature SL english literature SL maths SL design technology i have both HL & SL papers for some of them. i am contemplating whether to keep SL papers when I do HL; & if I should keep my HL papers when I do SL... i know for some subjects the assessments are very similar or even same in HL & SL. sooo plz provide me your valuable opinions! thx
  8. I'll jump right in to the absolute mess of my situation - I changed from World Studies to English at a reasonably late date (but not the latest!) and have since found a muse for my essay writing. The beautifully gothic Edgar Allan Poe - I've chosen 'The Pit and the Pendulum', 'The Black Cat', 'The Tell-Tale Heart', and 'The Fall of the House of Usher' as my four short stories to study. Of course, I have an English supervisor, but there is one problem - she's suggested I jump right in and write, without a question. Okay, so I know I need to write about the gothic horror element within his writing. But that's too broad, surely? I've thought about the theme of inflicted and innate madness, and their different portrayals within the stories, but I am unsure. Has anyone else done Edgar Allan Poe in the past, and if so, what topic did you decide on? I simply need inspiration. My first draft is due in two weeks. Thank you! mala-prop-ism
  9. Hi all, Last year, I'd been getting fairly good grades on my essays, and this year, well, it's suddenly dropped which has been quite disappointing (though not a surprise considering how unresponsive my brain is being towards analysis in essays). There isn't really one big issue, but a lot of big ones, which is more than a little troubling, specifically: writing a coherent and concise introduction determining the subject/theme of the passage the actual analysis and knowing if it is enough/makes logical sense I'm aware the middle is only done through practice, and whilst I've looked at plenty of examples of essays, none appear to be the type that my teacher is looking for. It would be great if anyone could offer some advice as to how I could improve with these and/or look over an essay plan I've made for IOC preparation. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  10. IOP

    I am a student of Grade 11 and I have my final IOP due in about a month or so. I was browsing through a few previous forums on how to go on about doing your IOP but many of them seem to focus on books. As I'm still quire new to IB could someone please help me understand how one should do an IOP on english poetry? The poems we've done in class are that of Robert Frost Thanks in advance!
  11. I was struck down with tonsillitis the day before HL English Lit Paper 1, but I still did both Paper 1 and 2. I had the form submitted to the IB and was wondering if anyone had any experience with this process. Would the IB consider my circumstances 'adverse'? If so, how close does your mark have to be to the upper grade boundary to be moved up a grade?
  12. Hi! So I really need help with choosing what HL and SL courses to take. I'm definitely taking HL English Literature, HL History, HL Spanish Language and Literature, SL Biology, and Math Studies (SL). I think I'm quite good at French, so I was thinking of taking French B HL too, but I'm afraid 4 HL courses will be too much to handle. I've been getting 6's and 7's in all of my courses, and would really like to get into my dream school (which happens to be an Ivy League school). I intend to focus on the Humanities. I chose Math Studies because I'm not very good at math and taking SL Math would have taken away time from studying for my other demanding courses, but I'm afraid that universities will think I was being lazy when I chose Math Studies instead of SL Math. I was thinking that taking 4 HLs could help me compensate, in a way, for that. What do you think?
  13. Hi! Next year I'm taking the following classes in the IB, and I was wondering how difficult my schedule would be overall: HL Math HL Econ HL English Literature SL Spanish SL Physics SL Business/Management online I'm looking to go to an Ivy League university to do Finance or Economics, not really sure yet, so I was also wondering if this is an appropriate subject selection for this. I was considering taking Spanish as a 4th higher level, but ultimately decided against it, but I'm still not sure if I should switch and do Spanish HL and English SL. Thanks!
  14. So, what were your thoughts? What did you pick, prose or poetry?

    Hey guys, this list of poetry devices proved very helpful and useful during my revision (or last minute revision really). Also, it's a very good resource for your IOC preparations! Don't seem to find this list anywhere on this website, just thought I'd share.
