  1. Hey!! I'm starting IB in less than a month and I already chose my subjects because I wanted to major in Psychology. However, I am now leaning towards veterinary science. At first, I chose bio SL. To be a vet, I first need to have a bachelor degree in Biological Science. The uni I plan on going does not require chem. But, if I do major in biological science, there will be some chem classes. I am for sure taking Bio but I am not sure if I should move it to HL and add Chem SL. My question here is how hard is BIO HL compared to BIO SL? (I'm interested in bio) Will chem SL help me in uni (Biological Science major) even though my uni does not require it? should i take it? (I'm really bad at math and I do not really enjoy chem and I found the intro class hard but I did not really pay attention)
  2. I am in semester 2, year 1 of IB, what is a good daily study plan for someone aiming to get a 45/a good IB grade? Is it okay to focus on one subject per day or to divide them within each day? Can I know anyone's IB schedule?
  3. Can someone explain to me the statistical analysis option for the Bio IA (I'm in HL if that helps)... Our teacher gave us a really bad explanation and I don't understand. We talked about IA's in class like once and never again so our teacher didn't really give us any time or help at all with this so I figure this is the easier route -- how do you do this type of IA and what's the best way to go about it??? Plz help. Thank u fams.
  4. Hey everyone, I have been researching for a biology ee topic to work on but it's been almost a month and I have nothing doable in hand. My Biology teacher, (who is most likely going to be my advisor) has very little to no experience with extended essay and is advising me to choose another subject. I want to major in Bioengineering and Bio HL is my favorite subject, I also want this to help me with admissions and I aim at mentioning this work in my applications but EVERY SINGLE teacher of mine advises me to change my subject as a group 4 EE is apparently extremely difficult to get an A in. I have limited time before September, and there is not one teacher in my school willing to help me out with this, so I'm basically left alone. I search for good examples of EE ideas from which I can produce something of my own; I'm interested in working with plants or something that involves the brain but I like bio as a whole so any recommendation is appreciated. It also would be great if I could do something that doesn't involve a long and advanced experimental process. I really am lost and anxious that it really isn't a good idea to do Bio if it's that difficult, but I also want to graduate with a work that will improve me in my area of interest and I also want to challenge myself by doing Bio, but when you have 0 support it's difficult to do so. I'm desperate for any suggestions, help, ideas and topic recommendations, and thank you.
  5. Hi everyone, I wish you all good luck on your exams. I did my grade11 biology HL exam a week ago and I managed to get a 2. I studied a lot but I still couldn't get a passing grade. A lot of people from our grade have the same problem since the beginning of the year since we are all having problems with our teachers (They are new to the ib and have no idea what they are teaching). I Studied and made my own notes using http://bioknowledgy.weebly.com/ as I really found their presentations helpful and I did most pastpapers from 2008-2013. Because I am doing well on the other 5 subjects I was given the chance to do a resit in Aug. Can anyone give me any tips on how they study for biology and how they manage to get a good grade? I need to get a least a 5 on the resit!! I REALLY need your help! Thank you all so much
  6. Hi people We are learning the heart structure and soon we have an exam and then our end-of-year exam. Can someone provide me with a heart sketch that is good according to the new syllabus for HL? Thanks in advance
  7. Hey guys, As stated in the topic title, our school is having trouble finding a proper biology teacher, let alone one that is IB certified. I just have a few questions if this lab would be eligible or if it seems "good enough" to score well for Bio HL. I am hoping to send this in for the "design" criteria.. Basically, I want to set up an experiment to compare the breakdown of lactose using lactaid pills (or other similar pills) for skim milk vs. whole milk. My hypothesis is that it would take a bit longer to breakdown lactose in skim milk because there's more of it (lower the fat content, higher the lactose). Control: temp, amount of milk To measure this, I will be using a glucose strip... (I really don't know if this would work, are there other alternatives/ways of measuring this?).. having different test tubes and putting in a glucose strip every 1-2 mins to see if lactose has broken down; this will be set up for both skim and whole milk. Do you think this would work? Please pleaseee if you have any suggestions or improvements let me know. Also, I would really like to contact someone who's taking bio HL, I don't know who to ask around at school and I really need help on a few enzyme concepts. Please let me know if I would be able to contact you via email, facebook, or any where that's convenient for you. THANK YOU SO MUCHHH
  8. Hey guys I have a few questions regarding the biology internal assessments, since our teacher is new to the IB, he isn't sure of what's going on either... 1) To my understanding, we have to send in at least two labs, and we can kind of choose which criteria to be assessed on? Does this mean we only have to send that part of the lab report or do we still have to send the whole thing? (i.e. I choose to be evaluated on DCP for this lab, so do I send in the whole lab or just the DCP part?) 2) Is there a lot of difference between assessing bio hl vs. bio sl labs? I'm doing hl and I'm afraid my labs may seem to be too "simple." Just on another note, all IAs for the may 2014 exams are due by march 15.. does this include all the subjects in every group, tok, ee, and cas portfolios? Your help is really appreciated. Thank you so much!
