  1. Hey guys, what are your thoughts on ManageBac? Do your schools use it? In my school I only used it for CAS, but my friend's school used it for everything in the IB but he said it was pretty annoying to use... Is it any good? Do schools use other programmes instead?
  2. I’m a little conflicted about choosing which subjects to take as higher levels. My school forces us to take English and History HL, so I basically only get the option of one other HL. That will probably be Chem, but I’m also considering Math HL. Because of my school’s requirements I’ve been considering taking 4 HLs since I hesr that colleges don’t often look at SL classes. I’m a straight A student, but I struggle with time management a lot, and I realize the commitment I’d need to make. Not sure if I’m making any sense here, I’d just appreciate some advice on deciding, maybe some perspective from people taking/who have taken 4 HLs? Thanks!
  3. Hello! I need to make my subject selections for DP soon and I'm kind of conflicted between taking Business management or English Language and Literature HL. Consider that I'm already taking double sciences (Bio and Chem) HL, and I was initially fixed on Business HL but I'm scared it will be too much. Can anyone tell me which subject would be more tolerable to be studied with double sciences HL?
  4. I am in MYP5 and I am undecided about my choices. I want to either study in Portugal or the UK. I want to either to study finance or computer science. The subjects I want to take are: Economics HL Math HL Spanish B HL Portuguese Lit. SL Eng. Lang and Lit. SL Physics SL I am forced to do Portuguese and English. One has to be Lang. and Lit. and the other has to be Lit.. My first language is portuguese, and I do much better in portuguese than in english. Which one is harder though? Lang. and Lit or just Lit.? Do universities prefer one over the other? Is there a problem with taking three languages, or should i change spanish to something like History SL, or another science? Please answer honestly: Do you think that these choices are good for someone pursuing a degree in either computer science or finance?
  5. well, I'm going to my dad's home country over the summer break and I was thinking I could do something related to culture or travelling for my Personal Project? I know, I have very vague ideas but I definitely feel as though I could use my vacation over the summer break as an advantage for my Personal Project. Any ideas for a more specific/outlined topic would be greatly appreciated
  6. Hi, I am currently an MYP student and the time to choose my subjects for next year is coming up so I just wanted some advice on what people thought of my choices and whether I'm biting off more than I can chew. For background knowledge about my subject choices, I'm aiming to get into a CS college. HL - Math, Physics, Computer Science SL - English, Spanish, ESS I know that chemistry is traditionally a subject for CS but I'm personally very bad with the subject and I've heard that HL and SL chem are quite difficult, and considering the fact that my HL's are already quite rigorous on their own, I wasn't sure if it was the best idea to add chem to the workload. I'm also not really sure about ESS yet, I want to take either ESS or a humanities subject that won't be as demanding as some of the other options. So I'm just wondering whether my subject choices are cohesive and whether I should be taking chem or maybe switching out ESS for a humanities subject? Thanks for reading.
  7. Hey guys, Could someone pls give me feedback on the courses I have chosen for the DP programme. I want to go into the med field. My school doesn't offer both sci at HL. Without further ado this is what I'm thinking of taking: Hl Chem, Sl Bio, Sl French(mandatory), Hl Lang & Lit (mandatory), Sl Math, Hl History
  8. Hi, I am 10th grade student currently in American British Academy school Oman. I have somewhat picked my DP subjects already but I wanted to ask you guys which ones are the hardest and easiest. Also I don't have any experience and prior knowledge with Geo. Will prior knowledge be needed to take HL? Is it difficult without prior Knowledge? How will I mostly be assessed? ( Projects, Tests, Presentations, All?) HL Geo HL Econ or Buissness HL Physics SL Math SL Eng Lang Lit SL French TOK
  9. I'm going up to 10th grade next year, which means personal projects. I want to do medicine, biomedical engineering, or biochemistry in university. Can you give me some ideas about what to do? Thanks so much
  10. Hey, So I am beginning to prepare for the next school year next year (pretty early, I know) which is the year I will start the MYP/Pre-IB program. I'm currently trying to figure out what I'll be needing for note-taking and such. Here's my plan as well as my courses: - English (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Mathematics - Grade 9 (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Mathematics - Grade 10 (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Science (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Canadian Geography (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - French (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Instrumental Music (A hole punched folder) - A planner/calendar - And a large fabric, zipper binder so I can put all the notebooks, folders, or loose papers in together. My 2 questions are: Would it be wiser and more organized to take down all my notes in the notebooks and use loose leaf sheets of paper for all my exercises? Should I use notebooks at all? Or should I use a bunch of binders instead (I've heard a lot of people used separate binders for each subject in IB)? If not then what do you think I should use? Thanks in advance
  11. Hello! So, I know it's probably too early to be thinking about this (considering I haven't even started High School yet) but I want to participate in an international student exchange program in Grade 10. I would be more interested in applying in Grade 9, but you must be 15 and up. I searched for a topic containing something related to a student exchange program on the forum and couldn't find anything, so I'm guessing this isn't too popular with IB students. I'm going to start Grade 9 in a couple of months and have been accepted and enrolled in a Pre-IB/MYP program for both Grade 9 and 10. If I survive, I'll be enrolled in the real IB Program in Grades 11 and 12 and the only reason I'm not even considering studying abroad during those two years is because I know I won't be able to miss a semester of school. In other words, Grades 11 and 12 are out of question for me. I really want to study abroad in Japan for the first school semester (in Japan). It will most likely be from March - August, but I'm not sure as programs for 2019 aren't available yet. The other option is August - February, but I would like to spend the holidays with my family. In case you don't know what an international student exchange program is, allow me to tell you. Basically, it's when you apply to an organization of your choice to study abroad somewhere (internationally) for a certain amount of time. Its main purpose is cultural enrichment, immersion and foreign language enhancement. The program duration can vary from 4-10 months.The organization provides you with a certified host family, school enrollment, and takes care of the airfare stuff. Different organizations provide different additional things but the ones listed previously are the main things offered. In terms of the school stuff, I'm not sure about classes and grades (I should really look into that) but I don't think they officially grade you if you only attend for one semester. I have also heard that most classes will be in English, but some will be in Japanese; the numbers depend on how well you speak the language. But you must apply for your selected program (ex. one school semester in Japan; March - August). I think the application process takes approx. 5 months at the max. The organization I am interested in (AFS) evaluates you based on an interview with a representative. If you are accepted, then you're good to go! **EDIT** I think I can also transfer to a school offering the MYP/Pre-IB program upon request. I believe that would be a wiser option. Opinions? My 2 main questions are: - Should I go? will it be unwise to miss a little less than half a year of the Pre-IB program? (Grade 10 btw) - Have any of you ever done this before? Any type of suggestions, opinions or advice will be greatly appreciated Thanks!!
  12. Hi, all! At my school, we're having IB course selections and I would really appreciate some input. English Literature HL (I’m really good at English and really enjoy it!) Psychology HL (I’ve always been interested in psychology) Biology HL - Chemistry HL German ab Initio SL (Excited for this course) Math SL (I’ve always been horrible at math. I don’t want to do math studies.) If not, what can I change? Let me know what you think!
  13. Hey Guys, im currently in grade 10 and currently selecting my courses for dp. In the future, I want to study majors like computer science, software, computer or electronic engineering(Possibly). So I am currently planning to take math physics and chemistry for my HL courses. However personally im just not into chem and doesn't really have much passion to study chem in depth. I just wonder if chemistry is HL really required for my desired uni majors? And is taking both physics and chem hl really hard and exhausting? Would switching the chem hl to economics hl put me into disadvantages when applying for those listed university majors? Much appreciated!!!!! ps: Im currently planning to go to uni in possibly UK, US or Canada.
  14. Hello everyone , I keep changing my mind about what subjects I want to choose thats why I really need advice. I want to study Neurobiology as an undergraduate degree in an Ivy League University, and then either a Phd in Neurobiology or an MBA. For Ivy League Universities they don't have entry requirements other than to trigger yourself with choosing hard subjects, on the other hand, I would also like to apply to UCL as its known for being very good in Neurobiology. These are my subject choices for now: ENGLISH A LIT. HL SPANISH A SL (Spanish is my first language but maybe I should drop this to B HL but then I would start with 5 high levels) HISTORY HL (Ivy League prefer History I think) / BUSINESS HL BIOLOGY HL MATHS SL ECONOMICS/CHEMISTRY HL (probaby better for neurobiology but know to be extremely hard) They ask for over 40 points, so I need to find a balance between hard subjects and getting very good grades in them. What do you think about my subjects? Can you give me feedback about the ones you took? How should I plan myself to be succesful? Thank you so much
  15. I have just finished MYP5 (10th grade in pre-IB) and my last report card had an average of 6.1 out of 7. I am really worried that this will affect my chance of getting into a competitive college. My results were: Italian: 7,8,8,7 (final grade 7) English: 6,7,7,7 (final grade 6) Design: 6,7,7,6 (final grade 6) History: 8,8,8,8 (final grade 7) Physical Education: 5,5,4,5 (final grade 5) Science: 6,4,6,6 (final grade 5) Art: 6,7,5,6 (final grade 6) Mathematics: 7,5,6,6 (final grade 6) Spanish: 7,8,8,7 (final grade 7) Are these grades good enough? Will Ivy league colleges laugh at me with these grades?
  16. Can anybody give me some information about how the IB grades? I heard that assessments were out of 8 but final grades were out of 7? I'm not sure how it works. Thanks
  17. Hi guys! I am currently a sophomore (finishing MYP in a couple of days!) and the school I go to has just finished finalizing my subjects for next year. However, according to advice from Juniors, my subject choices seem to be too rigorous, time-consuming and as a matter of fact, simply a wrong combination of subjects. These are my subject choices for next year: 1. English Literature SL 2. Dutch Literature SL (Self-Taught) 3. Global Politics HL 4. Chemistry SL 5. Math HL 6. Economics HL What do you think of them? Did any of you take these subjects and can give me any advice? Do you think they would meet the subject requirements for most UK Law programs? It does fulfill the Oxford and Cambridge ones, but I haven't checked on many others. Also, did any of you have to change their subject choices at the beginning of Grade 11? How did you catch up on all the work you had missed? Did it go smoothly? Would you recommend me to switch if I am not content with my choices? Finally, any last advice before I become a prisoner of the IB for the next to years? Thanks in advance! Ps. Please reply honestly, because I have never had experience with the IB and do not know a lot about its nature; this post is a sincere request for advice.
  18. Hello. I have a few questions about CAS and service in action. Do long term activites such as tutoring, volunteering at a hospital count? Also, how are we able to do tutoring. Do counselors at our school help us find somebody we can tutor?
  19. Hey guys! The MYP students just had their maths eAssessment and the difficulty was ridiculous, for both maths and maths extended. Due to this, students have created a petition to then send to the IB. I'd be great if you could sign it and share it. Thanks! https://www.change.org/p/international-baccalaureate-myp-e-examination-maths-standard-and-extended-2016
  20. Salut everyone! I'm currently in the MYP (10th grade) and I'm choosing subjects for DP. Here is what I've decided so far: HL: Computer Science Math English B. SL: Physics ITGS Russian A. Do you think these subjects are good for wanting to take computer science in university? Is Math HL too hard? Is CS HL too hard? What kind of advice could you give? What should I do on summer holidays to get a 7/7 on my DP subjects? Arigatou. ^^ //I want to be a good programmer.
  21. Hey everybody, My friend and I have created a 10,000 word eBook compiled with advice, effective strategies, and actual IAs to tackle the IB. We had the luxury of working with a bunch of really smart students; we've essentially merged the different skillsets of many intelligent people into one whole eBook.

  23. So up until today I had no idea what I really wanted to do for my project. Here are the ideas I've come up with so far : The effect of child abuse on our society Some form of stop motion animation Serial killers Famous historical landmarks (then and now) Medias influence on teens The different effects of different drugs A day in the life of a schizophrenic Contrast between the eastern and western worlds Teenage insecurity Psychology of color Different types of tears Inside the mind of a psychopath/socipath Create 3D objects (even though I suck at art, designing and technology) Social protest (How I Should Look < How I choose to look) -Roles of Women: impact and underestimation (do females have the ability to make a change on national level?) A model of an eco friendly house design or eco friendly interior design Using Google SketchUp to create a virtual model Effect of some inventions on society (maybe the invention of the heliocentric model) Current political/social issues (maybe the Syrian refugee crisis) Past political/social issues (probably something related to Nazis and World War 2) Different beauty standards around the world The effects of cancer (mentally, socially, physically, and emotionally) Feel free to give me constructive critism, which idea you think I should do, which ideas I should scrap, and any interesting ways I can showcase any of the ideas!! I'm mainly interested in projects that are related to psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, war, and social issues. IM OPEN TO ANY NEW IDEAS ASWELL! I'm just confused as how to showcase or make my final product interesting for most of these projects. I feel like the only thing I could do with most of them is write essays lol Anyways thank you guys so much!!!!!!!!!!
  24.

  25. Hello everyone! I am writing the entrance test for the pre-ib program at Bayview SS this month! I got all E's and a 93% average on my grade 7 report card. I have a good recommendation as well. I am really worried for the exam itself. I am very good at the language arts and math, however I do not go to a French immersion school, and I feel that I do not know too many enriched words. Anyone who has taken the test....what was the French component like? What type of questions? What do I need to focus on? Can you recommend any study sources? What was the hardest part of the test for you? What should I was out for? Any other tips? Sorry that I have so many questions but it would really help out if you answer at least some of them as I am very stressed and worried for the upcoming test in two weeks. I will be very grateful for any help or tips! Thanks.
