  1. Hello everyone, I have this biased business and management teacher that only gives good marks to internals whose owners are her favorite (her favorites are the students that don't take private lessons). This is quite problematic because its easy to figure out the ones that do take private lessons than the ones who don't. So problem is my internal is with her and I'm pretty sure it won't get the mark it deserves (Ex. this one kid once got a 3 from her, but chosen as a sample so got raised to a 7). She always tries to justify herself by saying she's the "ol' mean examiner" that is only "harsh to make students work on themselves more", which is why she got out of trouble w/the school, so telling anyone responsible isn't gonna help. I heard once that in a similar situation, one can send an email to the ib explaining briefly what's going on. That if the IB got an email, they'd request ALL of her internals, not just a couple of samples. Last year they took all of her internals, so question is does sending an email work? and if it does work how do i send one? (Address, what do I include, etc..) Thank you in advance !!
  2. Can anyone please help me with this For my Extended Essay, I plan to do research on the business/economic aspect of football. As football is becoming more of a business in the modern day, and many decisions are business motivated it is what i plan to research. However, the issue is that along with checking in with my supervisor we realized that the Business Management EE is more an analysis of an organization making a decision or activities of the firm and that business tools would need to be used. Also, we could not find how we would apply this topic to the Economics IB syllabus. Examples of what I would wish to study are analyzing China’s recent activity in the football market and their 50 point development plan for football in China or the expansion of the world cup to 48 teams. There is nothing specific under this topic I wish to do my EE in and any thing that I can find suitable to do my EE related to this topic will be great.

  4. I am a Pre-DipCan, and I plan to take English HL, Psych Hl, and History HL, along with Mathematics SL, Anthropology SL, and Environmental Systems and Societies. I have one spot open for senior year, and I am not sure if I should take Business Management or French??? Also I don't know whether to take ESS or Anthro, Junior year? Any help would be great!
  5. 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!
  6. So I have been struggling very much with my Business Internal Assessment, it's been absolute hell. I didn't hand in the first draft so I never got it marked and I've missed the internal deadline for the final and I haven't even completed it. I never thought it would be so hard, after all I also did an extended essay on business too. I've been pulling all nighters for almost a week now and I just can't get it right so I'm thinking of just handing it terrible like that. How much would a bad IA affect my results? I'm a predicted 6 but with how my IA is going... Im afraid I wont be able to get my IB Diploma. If I were to score a 3 on my IA for example and a 7 on the exams, what result would my final be? a rough idea? I am in need of a bit of consolation. This task have given me so much anxiety, I've lost my appetite and the will to do anything.
  7. Guys, I am in a hurry. I was doing my application for IE University in Segovia to take a dual bachelor of Law and Business Administration, when I "stumbled" in the admission tests. They require either the IE Admission test or other as SAT, LNAT, CAS or ACT. The Cambridge Assessment Test (CAS) includes those Language tests like the First (FCE), the Advanced and the Proficiency, right? Because I have done my First (FCE) Exam and if it does count, then I must use it as I haven't done any of these. Could anyone who knows or has been confronted with these admission tests explain help me? If I am not able to upload my FCE result, then can you explain to me how can I do one of the other exams and am I still on time? Really I need fast answers! Thanks in advance, Richard
  8. Hello! I'm studying Business and Management HL right now and it seems pretty hard to me, even though I do ALL the homework, read ALL the assigned pages! I am so afraid right now that I won't be able to pass the exam, cuz I couldn't memorize the therminology and all the aspects of this subject. I'm thinking of switching to History HL, but I'm not sure if it will make my life easier. And I'm studying on IB diploma 1 for 4 months already. So I would need to catch up a lot if I switch. Has anyone experienced it? Any advices? Which subject is easier to pass at the end?
  9. Hey guys, I am on my 2nd year and its about time to send my application to universities with the degree chosen. I am kinda hesitant, because I am facing a conflict of passion vs money. I mean kinda because the options I am considering for "money" I also enjoy them. So within the "passion" group there is studying Literature and Creative Writing. Since I was 14 years old that I like writing poetry, short stories and forth. I can consider myself a creative and eccentric person and I like writing any kind of text whatsoever, it seems that I perceive writing and the importance of grammar and clauses and all of that as art. I know this sounds kinda weird, but I feel like I look at it some other way; everybody has their passion and the thing that interests them the most and it seems we look at it in a more abstract way, or that we grasp it easier. All of my teachers are impelling me to pursue Literature, but there are two factors that are making me "rethink". 1- it does not grant much career options. I mean it is basically writing in freelance, which I would honestly love to, but I guess I have grown and realized I need to have a stable life and we do not live in an oneiric world where artists and mathematicians and philosophers are always happy and if they strive to get projects and jobs their work will be noticed and valued. I have been becoming skeptic about this and I don't want to spend my whole life like my frustrated Literature teacher... (oh and being a teacher for me is not an option, I would hate it). 2- I would be studying into the UK because in my country Literature really means unemployment... but going to the Uk and learning eng lit, which is more less universal and might give me a better chance of getting a future, also implies studying another language and lit which will obviously be harder for me than for other native students. On the other hand, there is the option of Business or Law. UK universities even have ambivalent degrees which include both Business and Law, which would be an explosive mix ahah. I don't really like business and finance stuff, but I like Economics in theory cause its a social science and has very important implications for us. I have Math Studies, thou I informed myself and the UK and a few good univ. in Spain allow for Math Studies, with a min. mark of 6. Law I guess I would also love to take. Before writing, I really wanted to be a lawyer as I have always had the concern that there would be no exogenous factors like lobby, culture, background — interfering in a person from "telling his story". I guess I do have argumentative and research skills, but more than that, my imagination would really help me out. I know this doesn't sound right but arguing is virtually creating scenarios and realities which we are prompt to defend or get arguments in favor. If I want to defend something, I really get a way of proving it and I guess in court those rhetoric techniques would work. So, Law is a mix between passion and money, but my real passion is writing and imagining and not taking a Law degree. I am currently with 33/34 points. Could you give me some advice? I was planning on having decided by this week "more less" at least because we can only apply to 5 univs. in the UK and so if I did know what degree I would like to take I would be applying to more univs of that degree... I am sorry for the extension, but this is very hard to sum up. Thanks, Richard

  11. Hey guys, I am doing my extended essay on the acquisition of TNT by FedEx, I have done the research and wrote 4000 words, but my supervisor told me that it is not enough and basically the only feedback she gave me was to do more analysis. But I do not know what kinds of analysis to do for acquisitions. My research question is " To what extend is the acquisition of TNT going to help FedEx financially? " Could someone help me with that and also could you please tell me how to structure my EE? Thanks in advance.

  15. Hi, So i'm thinking of doing an EE on this supermarket called 'Villa' in Bangkok. I want to do something relating to the large expat/foreign population. I DO NOT KNOW WHETHER VILLA IS MAINLY AIMED AT THAIS OR FOREIGNERS Things I could consider would be: - Location (Most Villas seem to be along the skytrain) -Location (Land prices around the markets) - Maybe the combination of this and the bts makes land expensive -Increase in foreign population proportion (how more Villas were made to accommodate this) - Range of products (international) - Things that attract customers - service/proximity/etc. - Compare with another supermarket (Tesco? It's international but Villa isn't - yet mainly Thais shop there) Anything else? Please help me with forming a question and other things I could look at!!!
  16. Hey guys, I am going to be brief. I am a little bit lost with my 2nd commentary. It seems easy as it is a very straight-forward work and doesn't require much research. The thing is I guess I haven't actually grasped the essence of writing an Economic commentary. Is it supposed to just explore and explain the discussion in the article, illustrating it with economic theory and diagrams? Or should I produce a discussion myself, with arguments in favor and against, even if they are not mentioned in the article? For example, I am doing on tariffs on China. And as you know there are several arguments against and in favor as to protectionist policies. One that occurs to me is the fact it gives government revenue. But on the article it does not mention it at all. But lets imagine I am actually fond of this argument and could explain it and analyse it neatly. Could I develop and illustrate it on my commentary? Or should I just stick to what the article says and just assess it eventually on the conclusion? Please, I really needed some advice or some general tips on what really consists an Economics IA. Thanks in advance, you can PM if you want.
  17. The EE research question I have is "To what extent have terrorist attacks impacted Air France?" I have made clear that only terrorist attacks in France that were widely-publicised are considered. After reading through some exemplar essays, I noticed that many good ones had quotes from other people on the subject. Will it be an issue if I am unable to find a quote directly relating to the topic? (research material is no issue I have many articles as well as financial reports). Also, is my research question acceptable? Can you find any possible weaknesses or problems? Thanks!
  18. Hello! I really need some help! I started I.B last thursday with the following subjects... HL: Theatre Business English B SL: Maths Biology Spanish A Business is a new subject for me and I have had four lessons so far of which I have hated all. The teacher who is doing the business course is new to the school and I really haven't liked her method of teaching at all. Nevertheless, business was such a big class that it was split into two, the one I'm in, with the new teacher, and the other one with a teacher I like and am familiar with. Here is my issue, I am not allowed to switch to the other business class, meaning that if I want to carry on with business I need to continue in my current class which I always dread going to. Of course, I also have the option of doing geography or history, and I'm leaning towards the history option at the moment. I'm just concerned that with the I.B I have I will struggle if I swap to History as its so content heavy! What do you think the best option is, business or history? Bear in mind I'm not sure what I want to study at university yet, but most likely something to do with Law or Psychology. My second question is, should I take French rather than Theatre? I have a true passion for drama, and my teacher sees a lot of potential in me. However, I know I won't end up studying anything theatre related, and a third language may benefit me more in the future...My parents insist that I take french, not only for the many benefits of being trilingual but the french class currently contains two students, three if I were to join, so I feel as though I'd learn a lot these two years... What should I do? Thanks in advance for the help!! I need advice! Ellen xx
  19. I have to start my IA this week, and I cannot decide on what aspect of business I should base it on? Should I focus on work force motivation? Production? or finance? please help, I'm really confused and my teacher didn't give us much support before the break.
  20. Hey guys. I'm choosing my IB DP courses soon, and I haven't settled on what I want to do in the IB. What I'm currently thinking about right now is: Physics HL Business Management HL Economics HL But... I'm stuck between whether I want to become a pilot, or I want to do something in business. So I want to choose courses that can help me pursue both when I make up my mind. I surely want to do Physics at HL, but I don't know if I should swap out Business Management or Economics for Geography... I need some help, and any answers will be greatly appreciated! Should I just do Physics, B&M, and Economics? Or should I replace either B&M or Econ with Geography, and if so, which one should I replace and why? Thanks for the help!
  21. hey i need a research question i already have one but i need some help with it, what can i improve on it? we have a business and we just started its a cosmetics centre my question is How could company x increase their annual profit as a new business in a competitive market? i wanna go in that direction as i see it as an opportunity since they just started to write about it, what do i need to do to refine the question? or is it good already thanks a lot!
  22. I am doing my Extended essay on business with the research question: "To what extent does Lush Cosmetics Corporation being a CSR organisation have an impact to their market share?" However, I am struggling on how to start my research. Do I have to email the company? If so, what kind of message should I tell them? How do I sturcture my essay? What is the basic EE content? If I Corporate Social Responsibility is a huge part of my EE, do I need to have a whole section on CSR itself or should I just focus on Lush?
  23. Hi, So Im really behind on my EE and have no idea what to do? Is there a basic structure we should follow? I got very few instructions from my supervisor Im doing mine in Business and the first draft is due in August 15th but i currently have nothing, not even a research question. So i'm really behind :'( I want to focus it on Nike's use of social media in marketing but I'm not sure how to form a research question out of this or if it's maybe too specific and therefore wouldn't be able to cover 4000 words. Also wondering if I should compare it with another company, so do 2 companies instead? So basically a question like "To what extent has social media marketing contributed to Nike's loyal customer base(or brand name)" or "How has nike's social media marketing strategy contributed to its success" or "Should ___company implement Nike's social media marketing strategy" Please help, thank you in advance!
  24. Hi, i've been scouring the internet for a business extended essay sample that scored well with the ib but have discovered none Does anyone happen to know a site or some place i can check out some examples of a good business ee Thank you in advance
  25. Can anyone PLEASE give me some good tips for how to study(revise) Business and management? I really regret that I chose to do B&M but semester 1 has already passed and there's no way I can change my subject at this stage. So I know that though B&M is not my type, I really have to get into it and try really hard to get at least 5 or 6 at the end (To raise my overall grade as high as I can). The problem is that the textbook is so huge and I have no idea where to start and how I should revise since I couldn't actually concentrate during class time. Whenever I open the book trying to revise, my brain just goes totally blank by the amount of text and facts laid in front of me. B&M is so much stress for me right now. My overall grade for semester 1 has gone so much down because of this subject. Also I have spent almost entire 3 weeks holiday with this B&M textbook trying to catch up, but now I feel like I haven't gained anything like I still have the same knowledge as I did before the holidays started (I have only 4 days left till school now). This is REALLY driving me crazy. I really need to get back on track before it gets too late. I'm really desperate. I really long for some good tips and advice. I'm also thinking of buying revision book so please recommend me some good revision books. It would be great to find out some useful websites to revise as well. So please feel free to give me some tips such as how you guys revised B&M or how you guys received good results for B&M. Just ANYTHING useful about B&M would be appreciated. Will be waiting for some good answers!! THANK YOU!! (I take SL) -I found out that B&M revision notes uploaded by other users, are only open to VIP members of this website , which I think is very unfair since I thought this 'IB SURVIVAL' website was for all the students who need help with their study regardless of how much they have been using this website.
