  2. Hello IB-community! I am currently in high school and need to choose my IB subjects very soon. As the title suggests, I would be very thankful if some of you would be interested in answering my question. I am currently in a rough spot mental health wise, in the way that I am unable to tolerate any excessive focus on emotionally draining subjects, due to the fact that I was diagnosed as a highly sensitive person and struggle with depressive episodes. Therefore I am hesitant as to wether choose IB, history SL or ITGS SL. Because last year I did not enjoy history at all, it was very war focused and left me "emotionally triggered" many times. I struggle because its not the history that gets me, I actually liked it for most of my life, its just all the extra in depth-detail about wars etc. that I can't handle, Then I am torn between ITGS, because I don't know what to anticipate. I am not into technology or computers very much, but it seems like a relatively relaxed subject that wouldn't get me into trouble emotionally straight away, as I really enjoy sociology too. Many thanks for your suggestions Kind regards, Saoirse
  3. So far I've narrowed my topic down to something in the area of how cloud computing has helped businesses establish better customer relations, but I also have another topic similar to this and I don't know if its feasible or not. I’m having a hard time thinking of a research question, so would something like “To investigate how cloud computing can help businesses in establishing better customer relations.” be a decent question or does it need to be more refined? Also, another topic that’s similar to this which I’m having a hard time deciding which I want to do is the idea of social media helping businesses increase visibility or helping with customer relations. My problem is 1. I’m not sure if I can get enough primary research done by my draft due date and 2. I’m not sure how specific I have to be with my research questions, as I’m concerned with whether or not I need to add specific locations (Ontario, Canada for where I reside and can perform primary research) or specify which type of businesses can be affected (Food? Service?) Thanks in advance

  7. Hello Guys, For Paper 2 in ITGS, I am really would like to know what the most efficient structure of writing is. Meaning when do I mention the stakeholders and their negative/positive impacts, and evaluate them. Currently this is my system Issue 1 State Issue Positive Impact Stakeholder 1 Stakeholder 2 Negative Impact Stakeholder 1 Stakeholder 2 Evaluate Issue 2 State Issue Positive Impact Stakeholder 1 Stakeholder 2 Negative Impact Stakeholder 1 Stakeholder 2 Evaluate But I know that this isn't the most efficient, if any knows a better structure please reply. Thank you!
  8. Hello Everyone, As a first year IB Student I only have one IB exam, and thats my one-year (at most schools two-year) taught ITGS SL course. We've gone through most of the content, and most of it is not that hard. But what are techniques and ways I can actually prepare for the exam-questions? I know the IB is especially specific about HOW you answer certain questions, rather then WHAT (at least thats what I think). So some people expect 6's, but they get 5's or 4's. How do I prevent that? and how can I train myself on my own to get good at answering these exam questions, and get that 6. I have a week vacation in which I will spend most time getting prepared. Thank you!!!
  9. I've been trying to find notes for ITGS HL but can't seem to find anything beyond blogspot articles which do not work for me. Does anyone know where I can get notes in pdf, powerpoint or word format?
  10. Hello everyone, I am a first year IB student and I have some questions about ITGS course. Becasue of lack of teachers, we were forced to either choose ESS or ITGS as a group 3 in my school. I was wondering how does this lesson benefit while applying for an engineering branch?
  11. Hey there I need to confirm what Group 3 subject I'm choosing ASAP. Currently, I'm doing: English Lang & Lit HL Spanish Lit HL Mathematics HL Computer Science HL Physics SL I plan on studying engineering. When it comes to my Group 3 subject, I'm stuck between B&M, which seems useful in promoting entrepreneurship in the future, but Pre-IB classes have proved to be extremely boring to me, and ITGS, which seems interesting, fun and a solid, easy subject, to make my already pretty hard IB a little more survivable. So, which of them is harder? Can Business prove itself actually helpful for young entrepreneurs? What other option would you recommend? My school also offers: ESS Economics Geography History Philosophy Thanks!
  12. Hi, I am doing my ITGS IA and choose to do a website to adress my client's problem. I was wondering if it is possible to create your website using WIX website creator, if yes will it bring down my marks??
  13. Hello Fellow IB Students, I am a junior and I decided to take ITGS SL as a one year course at my school. There are quite a few advantages, but so far it's been pretty interesting and at times quite stressful. We did a few vocabulary tests, but we basically spent the whole of the first semester working on our IA. I would say that I don't really know any of the chapters well (except maybe chapter 1), and since I only have a semester left, the thought is kind of daunting that my IB Exam is in May. I now have a three-week winter break, and I'm planning to give myself a boost ahead. But should I be worried? I know it's not the hardest of curriculums, but it should be quite a lot to cover in a few months... Thank you!
  14. It's my second year in IB at my school, and it is genuinely the worst. Advice for anyone is that - I find that, unless you're a hard worker, pick subjects you like. Then you have drive and value that will carry through the next two years. - Don't bull**** yourself on maybes and mild interests in subjects, do what needs to be done as soon as possible. My first draft for EE is due in 2 days and I have very little to show for it. · A study of consideration · To what extent Areas including environment (geo tagging, mobile tracking, GPS, Online mapping) and digital leisure/entertainment (Traveling, food delivery, gaming - pokemon go, Ingress, Google Tours. Looking for any advice on developing a solid question, and good sources to use.
  15. *this 1st paragraph might be irrelevant*. So, I am about to finish my 3rd week in the IB program and I realized just in time that I really shouldn't be taking Biology SL. As much as people might say it's easy, I really always had problems with nature/biology since I was small. I did manage to get a B- in Bio I last year, but the way I studied and worked was way too rigid and stupid trying to learn every single sentence by hard while not understanding what was happening during the lesson. This I recognized also during my first weeks of IB, and while I take subjects like Physics HL, Dutch HL, Math SL, Econ HL, etc. Bio was definitely my hardest class, and it shouldn't be. Initially, I choose Bio to make my Diploma look better for universities, but since I am probably going the opposite road of math/science I feel like having good grades in other classes is more important than having Bio SL take over my life. So I want to switch to ITGS, I've read the syllabus and the content is appealing to my interests. The class is now only two people, so for me a great learning environment, my parents like the idea of me doing this subject. Happy Days Right? But I am scared, at my school it is offered as a one year course only in SL, so I will have to take the IB exam as a junior at the end of the year and finish my IA sometime before May. And I already missed 2.5 weeks of the class... 6 lessons in total.... will these 6 lessons beat me in the a$$ the coming months, or should I easily catch up? Thank you so much for reading/answering, Tomorrow I am going by the office to switch courses, and as much as I am happy with the decision, I am scared also... should I be though?
  16. Hey guys, Long story short, Math HL is hard. I'm doing terrible and don't know what to do. I study and all but I missed a month of the subject (personal reasons) and don't have time to catch up. To the point, If i drop HL math what other subject do I take as HL? MY SUBJECT CHOICES: -math HL -Physics HL -ITGS HL -Chem SL -English SL -French AB my school offers BM and economics as well. I don;'t want to take Visual arts. Im interested in computer engineering and mechanics but I know I need math HL for those subjects... Any help would be appreciated
  17. I'm going to change my EE research question into something I'm more interested in. Currently it is the "Effectiveness of 1 on 1 computer education in Dhaka" But I want it to me something I find more interesting so I can actually focus on it Current options in my mind are : To what extent is the actions of online hacktivists Anonymous ethical How does the TOR protocol affect cyber security To what extent can is End-to-end encrytion compromise security
  18. I checked the May 2015 Statistical Bulletin and found out that only around 32 people in the world got 7 for ITGS SL & HL combined. But I should add that only about 3200 people took it. That equates to 1% of the people taking ITGS getting a 7. Is this subject really hard? Or is it because the people who do take it had to do so due to unavoidable circumstances (e.g. clash of timetable)? And if you did take this subject, how hard would you say this subject is on a scale of 1 to 10, compared to your other subjects? Do you find it hard to revise and prepare for this subject because of the lack of resources?
  19. Hello everyone, Since we have paper 3 on the 17th How is everyone doing with the case study? I've done research, but still think I'm missing some information that might be helpful for the exam. For anyone who sat paper 3s before? What is important to consider? Because I didn't sit one for my mocks, we only did paper 1 and 2 for the mock exams. And also regarding the Smart Home 2016 case study.. What have you guys included as part of your research? I mean, what do you think is important to know and keep note of for the exam?
  20. Hi guys! Anyone sitting the SL ITGS exams next week? How's the revision going? I was also wondering if the examiners accept answers which are not on the mark scheme but are pretty sensible and relevant. How strict do they mark? Any ex-ITGS students have any tips? How harsh do they mark?
  21. Hey guys Just beginning my IB adventure, and am thinking about my ITGS EE topic. I've chosen virtual lab simulations and how they're replacing real labs. My only concern is that I can't come up with any social/ethical impacts, could you guys help direct me towards the impacts. Is an EE in ITGS a good idea? Thanks.
  22. Hello world, Currently I have the option of taking ITGS online and I was wondering if anyone who's done it or is doing it can give me some information on if this is a good option? I've been trying to find some online course taker IB results but to no avail. What I'm really interested in is, what portion of the people who do online courses get 7s? Any tips and advice at all regarding this general topic would be very much appreciated! Thank you~
  23. Hi guys. I wanted to ask something about Criteria D. At the end of D, there is a part called Agreement of Client. It requires the signature of the client. Our teacher said that we should scan the signature and put it in the criteria like that. However, I used a photo that I took earlier and cropped it and pasted it on the criteria. It is also obvious that it is a photo when you look at the criteria. Do you think will it be a problem?
  24. What are some things that have to be upgraded to make electronic health records the best system to use, instead of using the paper-based system for maintaining health records? Could someone give me comments on this Reasearch Question and tell me anything I need to include in this topic?
