  1. HI IM WRITING AN ENGLISH GROUP 3 EXTENDED ESSAY AND MY BROAD TOPIC IS GRETA THUNBERG SPEECHES. I have to come up with a list of 4-6 specificic subtopics to explore in my EE by tomorrow. Have any of yall written an EE about speeches?? Maybe I could compare her to someone else, but I don't know who? Would simply analyzing a few different famous speeches (like her ted talk, her un speech, EU speech, etc.) be enough??? PLEASE RESPOND IM VERY STRESSED RN
  2. Hello everyone, For my EE, I have decided to make it over the Nuremberg Trials and in History/Group 3, since I love learning about history and have am interested in law as well. My current research question is as follows: "To what extent were the Nuremberg Trials hampered by tensions between the Soviet judges and Western ones?" Basically, I wanted to analyze how the beginnings of Cold War tensions and oddities of the trials, such as how the Soviets themselves participated in the invasion of Poland, may have hindered the proceedings of the trials through the relations between the Soviet prosecutors and judges and those from the US, UK, and France. I am still in the process of researching, but for a vague idea for my argument, I would analyze the differences between the legal practices of the USSR and the West, which were pretty different, and events during the trial such as the Soviet judge "discussing" the invasion of Poland as a German indictment when they participated as well, and how this affected the trials and the audience. I would look at sources from both sides My questions are: Is my question appropriate for the EE? Is it too narrow or not narrow enough, and would I need to reword it? And would my argument be reasonable? (I pulled these questions off of the IB Survival EE Guide). Thanks!
  3. Hey. I have to choose my ib subjects sby the end of this month and I can't decide whether to take geography or history sl ?. Some other subjects that im taking are: Chemistry Hl, Biology HL, English A Hl, Spanish B SL, Maths Sl. Im not sure about what I want to do in the future, possibly sth to do with medicine or business. I just wanna keep my options open so which Group 3 subject would you advise me to take?? Also, which one would you say is harder history or geo sl ? Thanks is advance
  4. Hi, I've been having a lot of difficulty in Business HL because although I know all of the theory very well I am not good with the application, and always lose marks on case study questions (especially the 20 mark ones). I also struggle to accurately self-assess my answers based on the criteria. For this reason, I am considering switching to Economics HL because it seems more straightforward, but if I can find a way to get better at this skill then I probably won't switch. Is there any way for me to get significantly better at case study business questions other than textbook questions (which are not that helpful) and past paper questions (which I would rather save for DP2)?
  5. I have just finished my product for my ITGS IA. I am doing a DTP software using photoshop. However, my client gave me pictures that can be found in the internet. I absolutely have no idea about this. What should I do? Please help!
  6. Hey guys! I’m currently in grade 10 about to apply for IB. I aim to be a medical/law? student and these are the subjects I have chosen so far: English (A) - HL Mando (B) - HL Chem - HL Bio - SL (my school doesn’t allow 2 science HLs) Maths - HL Im unsure of what I should choose for my group 3 subject, my school only offers history in HL so I can’t take it. What would you recommend? Thanks
  7. My school is introducing Social and Cultural Anthropology, this September, as a new subject. I don't 100% trust my school to hire a qualified person, in Anthropology, as a teacher. So I want material to study over the summer, so I don't go into IB fully reliant on the teacher. From what I've seen, there doesn't seem to be a textbook for IB Anthropology specifically but rather general Anthropology textbooks. Which of these does your school use for Anthropology? Is your school planning to/using different textbooks for the post-may17 syllabus?
  8. Hey guys, I have been kinda exasperated and anxious with my History HL exam now in may: more than being a very demanding subject, it has a less padronised program and so can be considered to be harder to get top marks. Don't wanna seem kinda sponger but if you could give a few tips, talk about your situation with the subject, discuss the subject itself and, if you may, attach some notes or practicing answers to past papers (this was actually something not only I but also more people could benefit from, because for every subject you must have an effective writing, which enables you to get top marks). To get ambitious grades in this rigorous subject, we must intertwine knowledge with practice (until the exams, we can get both, so I would like to ask you, who has had good answers/methodology that would like to share with us). I have studied the following modules: WW1, Tsarist Russia, Weimar Republic, single party states such as Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Russia, WW2, League of Nations, Cold War with Vietnam, Korea, Cuba all of that (also including the impact of the UN in Cold War, the relation between China and the USA and Russia and China), the Spanish Civil War, Algerian War and Falkland War. Cheers, Richard
  9. I need some help deciding on my group 3. My school only offers History HL and Psychology HL, so I'm basically being forced to sacrifice one of my HL's to group 3. I'm interested in both, I like learning about history, and I also find Psychology fascinating. Ultimately, the deciding factor for my will be the IA. Which IA is easier? The IA for History HL or Psychology HL? Also workload and what you do in the class. Is there more work in History HL or Psychology HL? What kind of work
  10. hi guys, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if people had comments/suggestions/ideas etc. about writing a geo EE on migration. I am most fascinated with EU migration (central mediterranean route, but also inter-EU migration), but am not sure how 1. I will obtain primary data 2. if this would be a viable topic as I feel like I would just be recounting already known statistics.. I feel like this would be edging very close to a Human Rights EE, what do you think? (and if so, how could I make it more spatially orientated?) thank you so much!
  11. Hi everyone.. I'm going to start my DP next academic year and I need your opinions: I have to choose between Psychology and Economics or ITGS and Business and Management (B&M) or ITGS and Psychology or Psychology and B&M... Which set of subjects would you recommend? The other subjects that I've chosen are: Bahasa A Literature English B Chemistry Math SL Thanks! NB: I'm not really good in memorising and I have some knowledge in IGCSE: Business Studies and ICT. I'm going to take Business or Chemical Engineering for my bachelor's degree.
  12. Hi, I am in IB1 this year, and am stuck in between dropping Geography to SL or not. Before I start, does anyone have an effective way of studying Geography? I've not done Geo before and so I am stuck without knowing what to memorise & study. My friends told me to memorise the case studies, but what about case studies? Is it like the location and statistics? I am currently doing 4 HLs (Chemistry, Physics, Math & Geography), and Geo is my back-up subject as from what I know, Math-Chem-Physics HL is a suicidal course. However, I've found that the other 3 HLs are much more manageable than Geography. I'm also predicted a 7 at the sciences and Math but a 6 in Geo. I'm also less interested in geo than the other 3 HLs.. Will dropping geo to SL give me a better chance to get a 7? Or should I stick with 4 HLs (so that I can drop one of the sciences/math), because I simply do not know the right technique of studying geo? I appreciate it very much if anyone is willing to share tips on studying geography Thank you.
  13. Hi, I posted this post in the wrong forum by accident. How can I delete a post on IB survival?
  14. Hey everyone ! So I'm not sure if the topic I picked is preferable, but I would like to write en EE, examining the media literacy on the American media talking about the clashes in Ukraine. I found my articles and structured an intro, but I would also like to know if there is any points I am missing. I just started my EE and I'm not even sure that my introduction would be good. This is how I planned it. A little background information about Ukraine The clashes Crimea incident Obama and Putin's approach How American media's approach differ (Republican vs. Democratic) (or this can be introduced later in the paper) Correct me if I'm wrong, the format will be like the media literacy analysis paper, right ? (For example: purpose, context, target audience, newsworthiness, and linguistic devices) Another question; what can I use as a resource (to be written on the bibliography) for the introduction? CIA World Factbook? BBC Country Profiles? The Embassy's Website? One more thing, would you give me a name of an American Media network? (I already use CNN, NY Times, ABC News, CBS News and Fox News) Besides these questions, I would appreciate any kind of tip and advice. Peace Out ! I have my question answered by my advisor, and I told everything I know to you (Go to the last post)
  15. Hello Everyone! Could those who have chosen Economics HL give me a true, honest opinion on the subject. These are my current Subjects Maths HL (Will drop to SL) English HL Economics HL Latin SL Music HL Chem HL Will drop to 3 HL and SL's end of this year. I am currently scoring 7 in all exams. Could you please tell me how difficult is ecos HL? Is it a subject where the 'HL' lies in the actual amount of theory work or is it a 'HL' because the actual final exam papers are legit difficult like Maths HL. If a ****load of effort and work is put into ecos HL, will it secure a 7? For example, maths HL is theory heavy AND the final exam is very difficult. Therefore, regardless of the amount of time poured into the subject, the final exam would still be difficult as no matter how well u know the theory, the difficulty lies in the level of questions in the final paper. So it is a theory heavy and exam-difficult subject. On the other hand, Chem HL is very theory heavy however, the final exam is not AS difficult so it becomes a manageable subject. So is the final Economics HL Exam (s) extremely difficult like maths Hl where even if u know the theory, the question is really demanding or is it a 'HL' in that there is a ****load of work but the final exam questions are not easy but are manageable? Thanks alot for you input! James
  16. I have to give in my final IB choices soon and I'm currently deciding whether to take psych or history at HL. I'm currently taking both Psych and History (at GCSE level) and doing better in Psych (A*/7) than in History (A/6). I like both subjects equally, but I think I also have to consider my final GPA and course. I also find History slightly harder than Psych. Here are my choices: HL: Eng Lit. Art Psych or History SL: Biology Math Studies (hahaha) French B I'm still unsure about what I'm going to take for university: Art or Psychology or International Relations/Human Rights
  17. Dear IB Students, I am an IB 1 student who was recently called down by my Guidance counselor, and told that I could NOT take ITGS as my group 3 and would be forced to take either IB History or Geo (the only other group 3 courses my school offers) because I did not have the so-called prerequisite for the course. I know several of my other friends and collegues have also been denied for the exact same reason. However, the official IB website, ibo.org , states that there is "no particular background in terms of specific subjects for national or international qualifications is expected or required, and no prior knowledge of ITGS is necessary for students" although familiarity with such would be an "advantage" . From www.ibo.org/diploma/assessment/.../d_3_itgsx_gui-out_1001_1_e.pdf I also checked and double checked whether I could take the course with both the ITGS teacher and guidance counselor, who all said that there was no prerequisite in February 2013. Furthermore, the "prerequisite" in question is a tech/computer science course, which, from my understanding, does not seem in any way necessary to take ITGS. At the aforementioned link, ibo.org states that ITGS " considers the internal workings of an IT system only to the extent of how it contributes to the understanding of a social impact or ethical issue", whereas the "prerequisite" seems to primarily consider the IT perspective. Has anyone else encountered or heard of any such ITGS "prerequisite"? And if so, how have you dealt with them? If it is helpful, I attend an English IB school in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Also, the Ontario Ministry of Education also doesn't require a prerequisite for an equivalent non-IB course. Thank you so much for all your help !!!!
  18. Hello everyone. I'm doing my EE in group 3 of Lang and Lit, which focuses more on media and it's effect rather than a thematic analysis of a book, perhaps. I was wondering if anyone has done this before, and if you could please give me some tips or good references. If you could refer me to where I can read good past papers, that would be amazing. Thank you all. Have a great summer!

  20. Group 1: English HL Group 2: French SL Group 3: ? Group 4: Biology HL Group 5: Math SL Group 6: Chemistry HL So, I'm transferring IB schools and my new school has a lot of options for group 3. I want to go into medicine, so that's why I need HL Chem and Bio which are fairly difficult subjects, so I took English HL because I'm good at it and it would be easier than History HL (which my new school also offers) because I find History is a very time consuming subject. So, the option of History is eliminated and now I have to choose a SL Group 3 subject. Which Group 3 subject (Geography, ITGS, or Business) would be best to take with regard to my career choice and in difficulty level?
  21. Hello IBS. I really hope you all did well in both History papers. For Paper 1, the Arab-Israeli conflict, it seems that the IB followed the chronological order predicted: Camp David. I thought the exam was pretty straighforward: sources were not too confusing and the last question was broad enough to include your own knowledge. Regarding to Paper 2, in my opinion, the question of the Treaty of Versailles was a very interesting option to answer. On the other hand, in what concerns to the Cold War, I chose number 25, which was about Potsdam, Sovietization of Central and Eastern Europe and the Marshall Plan. Seems also that the one about Gorbachev was popular within the kids in my school.
  22. Hei, I'm currently an exchange student in Finland, aiming to continue my studies in this country after this year. I'm not new to the Ib, since I took the Pre-Ib and IB one in Mexico, before coming on an exchange. Hpwever, the school I most probably will study in doesn't offer quite the same subjects than my home school did, so I have decided to tweak my course selection a little. My old one used to look like this: Spanish A Language and Literature - HL English B - HL Philosophy - HL Biology - SL Math Studies - SL SaC Anthropology - SL And these are thhe subjects I'm planning to take next year: English A, Language and Literature - HL Finnish B - SL Economics/Psycho/History - SL Biology - SL Mathematics - HL Swedish B - HL Since I already know what to expect, I have decided to keep it realistic and take only 3 subjects at HL. However, I really want to go for the Maths at HL. So, based on my other subjects, which group 3 subject do you think would be easier to start like from scratch? I of course have some knowledge of psycho (studied at philosophy) and financial maths, or general world history (studied at anthropology), but I know it will be nothing compared to the actual course. I really wouldn't like to invest to much time/effort on it, since I will have enough with Maths HL. Thanks.
  23. I had originally opened this topic to request help about my EE on World Religions. However, I realised this post was off section so I decided to move it here: http://www.ibsurvival.com/topic/18959-ee-on-world-religions-here-my-top-topics/ Now this space is open to discussion about World Religions, your expectations and thoughts. For all i know, first examinations on it will be held on this year. tat's another great reason to share your feelings. We all want to hear about that strange subject called WL
