    English B EE

    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

    URGENT** IB Fail

    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 😊
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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 :)
  9. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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!
  14. 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?
  15. The first thing i would like to know is that, in your IB programs do your teachers communicate with each other so that they don't plan tests or assignments on the same day so they don't overwhelm the students? I'm going through a difficult time since my IB coordinator has told my class of 2020 that if we joined IB that it would be tough and challenging but the teachers talk to each other and plan their schedules so they don't overwhelm us. Some of the teachers talk to each other but rarely .... I spoke out about this since at this point in the school year their is so much stuff like assignments, projects, AP tests, finals due all in so little time and its just not me who feels overwhelm its other students in my class. I talked and explained to my IB coordinator about all that is going on and he sent out an email in response, to all the teachers and some are mad at me for speaking out about this. What should i do next and did i do anything wrong please help cause i don't know what to do and i don't want to make this problem into a bigger one.

    TOK PRESENTATION RLS HELP!

    Howdy, fellow IB kids I'm really struggling to find a RLS for my TOK presentation. I had to come up with a knowledge question really suddenly and it is "To what extent does one have the responsibility to share (substantial) personal knowledge?" My main idea for the RLS is to find a case where authorities, scientist have kept a secret from the public that could potentially be really important. Right now my only RLS idea is from the show "The 100" where they are all up on a space ship or something and an engineer finds out that the oxygen will soon run out. When he tells the president, he doesn't allow him to share the discovery to others and kills him to make sure of it. My teacher said that this will probably work, but a REAL RLS would be much better. So if you have any ideas of incidences kind of similar to that I would be REALLY GRATEFUL!

    Im horrified, please help!

    Hello everyone! Right now I feel that I reached my lowest point in my life. I am failing IB, and generaly feel so depressed. In our school we have marking 3 periods and end of year examps which count like a 4th marking period. Im finnishing IBDP yerar 1 and my grades wouldnt be worse: marking period 1= 24 points, marking period 2= 27 points and marking period 3= from my aproximate calculations i figured I wouldnt recieve more than 22-23! The subjects that i take are: Biology HL, English HL, Psychology HL, Chemistry HL, Math sl, French sl. I struggle mostly with math and CHEMISTRY (I HAVE A HORRIBLE TEACHER WHO DOSNT EVEN TEACH). I dont know what to do... I WORK REALLY HARD, tutors and past papers but nothing seems to work for me, idk. Please suggest something to me, a technique or options for universities that I have a chance in.. Also what is the outcome of these grades? How are predicted and real ib grades calculated?

    Maths SL / Maths Studies

    Hey guys, So I am currently in a maths SL class and I am not doing that bad, but I am considering dropping to maths studies because of the teacher. She is failing me now (apparently it was a mistake and she's lowering my grade for EXCUSED absences when I was sick, but that mistake should take place since it was written on my report card that im failing), and we have this weird thing now, our class is divided into four groups (every group has a leader) and every lesson we have a test or two, and before that a leader has 5-10mins for explaining a topic. We get grades for that, and my group is getting the lowest scores and those low grades are affecting our predicted grades. Anyways, because of that I have decided to drop to studies but the only thing that is holding me back are universities. But at the same time it is better to be sure that ill pass IB with a good grade from studies than failing SL 😕 Can someone help me with deciding on what should I do please??? 😕

    EE Psychology

    Hi, I have decided to do my EE on psychology, and could it be more into criminal psychology? I am asking here because my teacher was like I will check that and he never gave me the answer also do I have to conduct any experiment for my EE? My friend said that I have to do the experiment on which I will write EE (I know that I have to do an experiment for IA but what about EE)??
  20. Hello, Im currently in grade 10 and as you know IB math curriculum is changing starting from next year. Im conflicted on whether i should take math application and interpretation HL or analysis and approach SL. These are the only two options available for me. Im definitely not taking application and interpretation SL as its very similar to math studies and i want to major in computer science in the future which involves some actual math. Can someone please explain to me the differences between the courses and which will work best for computer science?
  21. I was hoping to start a blog in order to add up to my creativity section of CAS but I'm not sure if I can do it since it will not have any supervisor. Can I make my CAS coordinator sign it or do i even need a supervisor for such CAS? Thanks for the help!
