    Changing Subjects

    Hi. I am just now entering my second year of IB. I am taking chemistry SL & psychology HL (online) and would like to change from both. Throughout last year I unfortunately didn’t take psychology that serious and am finding difficulty in it (my expected grade is probably going to be very low). And for chemistry, its hard and it’s going to require more effort than necessary. So I wanted to change from chemistry to arts (since my school finally has arts this year) and from psychology online to film online. Since I have a strong background in both, is it possible to do them both in the second year?
  2. Hello, I am about to begin my IB next week and I Just wanted to know. I make art youtube videos, which means my face is not in the video. I know that Youtube videos counts as cas and I make the art videos, to teach people how I do my arts. But will it count as cas even though gave around 5 views only? And will they accept it even though I don't put my face in it? The type of video my make:
  3. " There are people who don't believe in the existence of dark matter, but there are numerous theories that could prove dark matter’s existence, such as gravitational lensing, dark matter halos, and cosmic microwave background. " I was wondering if this is a good extended essay thesis because my teacher said that this thesis is not arguable. I was wondering if she is right and if she is, how can I fix it. Many thanks in advance!
  4. This is my 6th week of grade 11 DP and from the first week i have been taking Computer Science, our teacher decided that it would be best to first start on topic 4 that is "computational thinking" as she believes that it is the hardest topic and should be covered first, today I had my first unit test on computational thinking and i found it to be very very challenging, the quiz out of 48 marks covers purely algorithms and problem solving, will the computer science exam be purely problem solving or will there be other components such as textbook theory and such? In other subjects i believe that all topics are evenly distributed in the exam and have generally the same number of questions for each topic however for com sci, I'm wondering if it goes the same way. What I heard is that 50% of it will be every other topic and 50% will be topic 4
  5. Hi everyone, I'm currently in 8th grade and I am planning on taking both the St. Robs and Bayview entrance exam into their ib programs. Can someone please explain to me how the exam is broken down, what can I expect, and what are my chances for getting in? (roughly 700 students apply to each school every year, only around 250 get accepted). For Bayview, I have an average of around 88% from my grade 7 final term, and a solid teacher recommendation. How well do I have to perform on the test in order for me to get into the program?? St.Roberts only relies on the test scores, im pretty sure. Also, is there any advice or helpful tips for studying for the tests? Thanks for your time

    Extended Essay Sylvia Plath

    So in my IB english literature class we are studying sylvia plath's POEMS (not her novel). but for my EE i want to write about Sylvia Plath's NOVEL "the bell jar". is this allowed?
  8. Hello, My name is Taha, I'm 17 years old, and currently in 12th grade. I'm looking for someone to help me with my Extended Essay. I've decided to focus my essay on quantum locking: including superconductors (YBCO), the Meissner Effect. I have access to the materials needed to experiment with this topic (materials from quantumlevitation.com). Some ideas I had in mind was to discuss the Meissner Effect in superconductors when cooled down to a critical temperature with liquid nitrogen. I was inspired to this topic when watching a talk on TED.com about quantum locking and quantum levitation (video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXHczjOg06w) This aim of this project is to study the properties of quantum levitation and locking and provide ways to improve the efficiency and speed of current transportation systems (high-speed trains, levitating cars, and hoverboards), and the idea of creating bearings with negligible friction. I will need help in formulating a research question that would be appropriate to the Extended Essay guidelines and know what is the best structure for my essay. Let me know if you can help me. Thanks,
  9. I think a thread about re-marks will be useful to the ones who are considering a remark or waiting for their enquiry to take place, as it's quite inconvenient to search the information about re-marks in many separate threads. I suggest posting the following information: Subject How many % was the grade from the next one (if relevant, breakdown by components)How long did the decision takeResult (up, down or unchanged)By "re-mark" I mean mainly a category 1 enquiry upon results (EUR). Perhaps some information would be necessary: A category 1 EUR involves the externally assessed components of a candidate's work (thus, no IAs - they can be re-moderated separately as a part of a category 3 EUR) being remarked by a senior examiner.It cannot be requested for individual components (papers).A re-mark can be requested only through your IB DP Coordinator. It cannot be requested without the candidate's consent, as grade can go down.The deadline is 15 September for May examinations. Cost: $ 114 / £ 65 per subject.If grade changes (either up or down), fee is returned.Once again: grade can go down as well as up.Time: 18 days is a target (but it can get longer in case of postal delays).Only your IB DP Coordinator is notified about the result of your re-mark request, however you will see your updated grades on IB Candidates website.As far as I am concerned, if your grade changes, IBO issues new result transcripts for free.Your university choices are not notified when you are requesting a re-mark, so you should call them / email them if necessary. [These two I am not very confident about, please correct me if something is wrong!]Sources: mainly https://ibanswers.ibo.org/, information supplied by my IB DP Coordinator Good luck with your re-marks!
  10. 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!

    okay.. so I failed the ib because I was caught with plagiarism in my theatre arts portfolio and I also did not acheive minimum marks to pass.. I was accepted to a performing arts uni, and luckily i did not sign up for the ib to send my final results to my uni. I didnt care about getting my ib diploma, but now my school wants to withdraw my upper school (high school) diploma... so now I feel doomed.. and i kind of dont get why they want to withdraw my high school diploma, but i get it at the same time. what should i do? will my school notify (tell) my uni that i was accepted into? omg.. dying literally...

    Subject Choices

    Hey guys, I was wondering if the following subjects would allow me to take an Economics Course in the top colleges in the United States, especially Ivy leagues? I am keeping the option of Ivy Leagues open here. I have taken the combination based on the idea of managing my academics with personal developments and creativity. (Balance between logic and creativity). I do have an interest in Media and designing. I could replace CS with DT if required to show colleges the idea of handling challenges. I have just finished an MYP course. 1. English HL 2. Math AI HL 3. Economics HL 4. DT SL 5. Film SL 6. French AB SL

    repeating one year

    Hello, thanks in advance for your answer. My friend has a very high probability of repeating one year. Under what conditions does a person stay in the second year in ib (11 grade) ? If in the first term (grade 11) the student receives 1,2,2,7,5,6. And in the third term (grade 11 ) he has 7,6,7,3,2,4 + A (TOK) will my friend have repeat a grade ? (Retention one year ) (CAS has done ) My friend is very nervous about this, but I don't know anything about falling conditions in ib. Thank you 😊
  16. This is quite a long story but I'm going to make it as short as possible. So when I first got my EE form, I put English Literature as my subject and put my two suggested supervisors who are both familiar with the subject. However, I was given a completely different supervisor who bases her teaching on VA. Though she told me I can focus on any subject like History, English or VA since she majors on them on the first meeting I had with her. Moreover, the DP Coordinator a few months ago, asked what subject my EE was and I said English whilst I had already submitted a VA EE. I don't really know why I did that, I just didn't have a proper RQ at the time and my supervisor barely gave me any advice so I just went along with it so I could at least provide the EE Coordinator with some essay for the draft. But when I received the feedback for my VA EE, my SP literally made me change the whole focus of my research question, so I have to basically restart again before the final submission in four days. Instead of doing it on VA, I went back to my original EE subject which was on English Literature. I'm a lot more comfortable on basing my EE on English since I'm not very familiar with Art terms as much as I am with literary techniques. But the problem is that my supervisor is refusing to give me feedback on the topic because she claims she already gave her form in and it was based on my VA EE AND now she apparently can't mark my English EE because she hasn't taught English in her life before. (literally, the other person who has her for a SP did it on English?!?!?) Now the DP & EE Coordinator want me to stick with my VA EE and give the fees to change my registration from English to a VA EE. Like, I understand I made a mistake by submitting a VA EE when I wrote English down, but can't they just accept my new English EE and forget about the rest? I still have a few days to receive feedback, I don't really see what their issue is. So idk, I'm really confused. Should I just continue with making a new VA EE or just keep pestering them to accept my new English EE? My English teacher is willing to give me feedback for it, anyways. I seriously don't have time to fix the VA EE anymore, but with English, I'm a LOT more comfortable and confident doing it. Also, is it actually a rule to pay a fee of $500 to change the subject registration sent to the IB? My school insists that I pay for it.
  17. Hey, I am currently in Grade 10 doing my MYP at an International School in Germany. I joined the IB system in January 2018 (which means I am at the school for 1 1/2 years now). Right at the beginning, I was offered to go to the English A course, however, I chose not to because I wanted to focus on the other subjects as everything was in a different language (used to study at a German School). After I finished 9th grade, (transferred into 10th) my English teacher offered me to move up again, but my family situation is quite tricky, so I missed the deadline and therefore stayed in English B ): A few months into 10th grade, I finally decided to talk to my English teacher and the DP coordinator to switch, but they told me it is not possible during the year so I stayed. I am thinking about moving, and therefore I would need to go to a different school (also IBDP) but they don't offer German A which is why I would need to move up to English A and take German as a second language (self-taught only offered as SL). My question is whether or not it is still possible to change from English B to English A, right before the DP. Thanks in advance!
  18. Hi guys, I'm doing my EE on Khaled Hosseini's two novels 'the kite runner' and 'a thousand splendid suns.' I'm planning on focusing on the importance of friendship and how the friendship between the characters of the two books lead them to carry on courageous acts. I'm struggling to form a proper research question and I'm unsure as to what I should really focus on. So, any feedback on this overall topic would be much appreciated :)
  19. Hi everyone, I'm currently in the process of writing my EE and am doing a comparative study on two anti-war novels of WWII. My exact question is: "How and to what effect do Joseph Heller and Kurt Vonnegut use black humour to satirise free will within Catch 22 and Slaughterhouse 5?" I'm at the point of finalising most of my research but am very concerned that everything I'm looking at might be completely useless and won't actually help me write the essay when it comes down to it. So, what I am hoping is that someone on here can provide some insight on what to research and think about in order to ensure that the research doesn't prove completely useless and what to look into to within each novel in order to better compare/contrast them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated...

    Personal Statement

    Hey everyone, This is my first post on this website but I would really appreciate the help because I am going to be starting the IB next year and our teacher wants us to write a personal statement. Although, he hasn't given us clear steps to write it so I would like to know how to start with my statement. I have 2 weeks to submit it. What do i start with? 'My name is Asma'u and and ...... years old..... I come from.... or does it have to be more professional? I could really use some help.
  21. My Chinese teacher has permitted me to study a year of Chinese over the summer, and this will put me into IB Chinese B SL. The course progression of foreign languages goes like this: freshman year -- Chinese 100, sophomore year -- Chinese 200, junior year -- IB Chinese B SL (300), and senior year -- IB Chinese B SL (400), and then we take the IB Chinese B SL test in our senior year. Since I will be studying over the summer, I will be taking IB Chinese B SL a year earlier and have the chance to study IB Chinese B HL (500) if I find myself truly loving the subject and language. I learn languages fast, but I have never done it in two months before. However, I am not a native speaker of Mandarin, and therefore, I will naturally struggle with studying Chinese. Are there any studying techniques available specifically to retain what I study over the summer?
  22. i wanted to ask if these subjects are okay? 1. Art HL 2. English LangLit HL 3. Business and Management HL 4. Math Applications and Interpretations SL 5. Chinese B SL one year 6. DT SL

    Help needed for Business HL IA Topic

    Hello there. I have my research proposal deadline coming up and i was wondering if i could get some help on the Research question. Since I'm taking Business HL, it's recommended to conduct primary research onto a local business. The business owner happens to own two separate businesses that operate in the same field- Electronics and Accessories. So i was wondering if it would be allowed to include both business names in the title... or does it have to be focused on one business only? I'd really appreciate any kind of help :) Thanks!
  24. In the Economics Paper 2, there are 4 articles and 4 long questions; should I try to read through both the articles and the questions completely during the five minutes reading time? I'm unsure that this is enough time. Should I just read the questions?
