  1. Hi all. I really want to switch to computer science HL (i take SL) and drop my physics hl because I am afraid it is too hard for me. I am in my first year of IB, my subjects are English A SL, Arabic B HL, ITGS HL, Physics HL, Computer science SL, Math studies SL. The problem is my school does not teach computer science HL (only sl) so I have to teach myself and I am kind of struggling with it. I scored an A- for computer science and a C+ for physics in my first term exams. How can I plan out lessons? Where can I study from? Are there online courses I can take or something? Any extra tips?
  2. 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.
  3. Hi everyone! We just had an EE launch. I'm a Year1 IB student. I want to do Computer science at university and our school does not have IB Computer Science as a subject. Which courses can I choose to make sure that my EE is useful for my university major as well? My subjects are Chemistry, English A, French B, Maths, Biology and History.
  4. Hello! My EE topic suggestion is due in a few days and I want to do a computer science based one. The problem I have is that I don't have ib computer science offered at my school, but I have a comp sci teacher willing to help me. I have taken many computer science courses so I think I have a good amount of knowledge. I was thinking I could do a paper on something to do with artificial intelligence but I can't seem to find what really are the components of a computer science ee and what is really expected in one. If anyone could give a few examples of what people have done before that would be really useful! Thank you!!
  5. Hi there, I'll be starting the IB pretty soon and would like a little heads up on my subject combination. So far, I have decided on: Chemistry HL Mathematics HL Economics HL Lang and Lit SL Chinese B SL History SL I would like to take computer science as a degree in a uni but am relatively unsure in swapping out chemistry for computer science because it's something I haven't really done before and chemistry is pretty much of a core science. After some thorough searching, most courses I'm going after in university level don't really require chemistry but it might still be a bonus? I dunno. And would History SL be ok or should I swap it out for Physics SL? I think physics would be much more related to my preferred course of study but I do love history (that's why I put it in). I heard from someone that mugging for history SL is pretty much the same as mugging for history HL. Is that true? Thanks for reading through all these!
  6. The IAs are due soon and Ive been procrastinating on working on my Comp Sci IA. Now that Ive finally decided to work on it Ive been struggling with an idea. I was wondering if for my product I could create a map for a game, and if so what would be the requirements for the map in order to fulfill the requirements for the IA. Thank You!
  7. Hey Im doing the full IB diploma with Maths HL, Physics HL and Computer Science HL, Business Management SL, English Lang and Lit SL and Language AB Initio SL I have anticipated IB score of 6 in everything except business which is 7 plus two points for EE so my total anticipated IB score is 39 points. I want to study computer science at either the University of Waterloo or the University of Toronto. What are my chances of getting in? I did the new SAT with a score of 1400/1600. Please reply as soon as possible. Thank yo very much.
  8. I'm starting my computer science SL dossier soon and not sure what I want to do..my school's computer science quality is super low so all we're taught is some java programming, we don't cover databases etc. I love compsci, and I do a lot of programming outside class. I can make animated games and programs. What should I do for my dossier? Someone give me some fun idea
  9. So, I'm two weeks into computer science HL and so far I feel really nervous and lost. It's the first time our teacher teaches CS at the same time as he is really unorganized and confusing(I had him before but in another subject) and all we've been doing for the last two weeks is basic programming in Python and HTML(very,very basic) without any real goal or objective. He also gives the impression that he doesn't really know the course since he hasn't really told us anything about it at the same time as he's kind of a nervwreck in class. To get to my point and question, what did you guys do in the beginning of Computer Science and how did your classes develope as the course progressed? I hope I'm just too fast too judge and overreacting but it sure doesn't feel like it, appreciate any answer and info you can give me!
  10. Hello, I have decided that its time to drop HL math. I've figured that if struggle the entire year to get a 3-4 in math HL, its not worth it. I rather get a 7 in SL math. My other HL subjects are physics (going good), ITGS (going good). Both subjects 6 or 7 (mostly 7). Question 1) If I drop HL math I can choose from 3 other HL subjects (i'll be taking math SL): Business management, Chemistry or English. I'm good at English, okay at chemistry and have a small understanding in BM. Question 2) I want to be a software engineer. I know both python and Java and have multiple extra curricular actives logged in (including the silver DOE award, planning on doing gold). I've looked into what requirements one needs to become a software engineer but if someone could streamline the requirements it would really help. Question 3) What GOOD universities are there that will accept me with all of these recommendations. I will answer any questions anyone has
  11. Im a year 11 student and I would like to know whether my combination is good or whether I should expect any obscure workload and what to watch out for. I take the following subjects- HL Computer Science HL Economics HL Business Management SL English Literature SL French B SL Math (not studies) SL Physics Is this a good combination for any field? If so can you please mention because I am not sure of what to do in the future. Thank you!! >o<
  12. Hi guys. I am an IB student who would be appearing for the May 2017 Examinations. So here in my college, EE deadlines are put up and I am out of schedule. So I have selected my Extended Essay subject to be Computer Science, because I have been fascinated by computers since a small age. So would this topic be feasible to do my research - A comparison of WEBP Image Compression Format with other existing formats such as PNG and JPEG and find how WEBP is better and effective when compared to other formats. Can I proceed with this topic....? I need some help with this and guys please leave your valuable replies concerning this. It would be a great help to me........!!!
  13. Hi everyone I am investing the doppler effect and whether it is a viable way to control the computer. I made an algorithm to map if a mouse to hand movement on the Y axis and then developed a web application to measure accuracy and duration. I then tested a mouse, trackpad, and doppler effect. My question is as follows "To what extent can doppler be used to create computer interaction?" I see that most computer science essays are studying algorithms or specific java functions. Is what I am doing ok? Should I change the question? Would I pass?
  14. Hello guys, This is my first year of IBDP (DP1) and the subjects I choose are English A SL Spanish B SL Mathematics Studies SL Biology HL Psychology HL Computer Science HL I would like to be a Psychologist in the future and my problem is that I'm worried that if I change my mind after I did the first year I will be very screwed since I can basically take ONLY Psychology or Management, but I have a real passion for being a Programer or a software/hardware engineer, and I can not study it at the university since math SL is the minimum requirement, I already spoke with our school's DP coordinator but he thinks that I will not manage Math Standart. My father is a math teacher at a university I asked him to send an email to our DP coordinator and tell him personally that he assures that he will work with me every day and teach me everything that he has to, but the coordinator still disagrees. I really don't know what to do at this point. Kind regards, Arad
  15. I am currently doing my EE on computer science. My topic is about the Turing Test and how does it differentiate between artificial intelligence and human intelligence. I have included some comparison between those two intelligent behaviours, the problems of the Turing Test, and arguments about whether the Turing Test demonstrate intelligence or not. My current word count is 3378 and I would like to add something into it. Does anyone have any suggestion???? Any suggestion will be appreciated:))))
  16. As an upcoming IB student, I was wondering which IB subjects would be recommended for Computer Science in Universities in the UK, Canada, and the US. From what I have read so far, I have gathered that Math HL and Physics HL are recommended but also read about how the IB CompSci course is not worth it. Should I bother taking IB CompSci or should I just take something else like Chemistry SL? Thanks for the help!
  17. I want to pursue Computer Science or Management in Information Systems in a US University. What subjects should I take? My current subject choices are: Math HLPhysics HLEconomics HLChemistry SL* English SLHindi SL (Since I live in India) *I am confused between Chemistry and Computer Science or IT Which will better appeal a US University? Chemistry will give me options but CS or IT will give me a good idea of my major and also impress the University.
  18. Hi everyone. I just want to thank you in advance for reading my post. I really appreciate it! I'll be writing my EE on Computer Science. At first, I wanted to compare encryption methods, but I wasn't understanding everything. Then, I was going to compare WEP and WPA networks and their security. After consulting my supervisor, he told me that my focus should be on hacking. One of my sources in my annotated bibliography explained the pros and cons of hacking in regards to technology. He told me that I could implement my research on encryption and networks. For instance, here's the outline he recommended: Should hacking be taught at the high school level? Pros Cons Possible class structure/syllabus (Here I was thinking of implementing security in regards to encryption and networks.) Ethical Concerns What do you think about this? After reading the CS EE guidelines, I'm worried that this research question may fall under the information technology in a global society (ITGS) essay section. Please help. Thank you once again.
  19. I had a discussion with my supervisor about my EE and we came up with a research question, "How does the Turing Test differentiate between biological and artificial intelligence?". I wonder is this question appropriate for an EE question as it is hard to include an reasoned arguments, therefore, difficult to get point on Criteria E.
  20. Hi! I would like to know whether the following would be a suitable topic for Computer Science IA : - A database for universities that students can use and it will filter out the the specific university depending on certain criteria's such as grades, subjects, courses. I plan on using Java and Microsoft Access to make this! Do you think this will be a good IA?
  21. I have a very small amount of experience in programming, so it'd be better for me to say I have no experience. So I was wondering if, with this lack of experience, would Computer Science at HL be reasonable, or is it not something people do? Please and thank you.
  22. Hey Guys, I am a mathematics higher level student and I am going to decide my topic for the math exploration soon. I'm really interested in computer science and want to pursue that in college so will doing my IA in Boolean Algebra help me in any way? Please advice Thanks in advance
  23. Hi! I want to pursue a dual degree in Computer Science and Fine Arts and have my eyes set on the Brown University and RISD dual degree program. The problem is that I did not have the option of doing this course earlier and therefore took Math Studies because I thought "eh I'm gonna be a photographer why do I need math" But now it is too late to change my subject. My predicted for the final exams is a 7 on math and got a 710 on the SAT math section on my first attempt. I'm taking a gap year and and going to retake the SAT along with the Math subject test. Does my subject choice hinder my chance of getting into Brown? Any suggestions for gap year activities which might strengthen my application are welcome! P.s. I have a lot of extracurricular activities, if that helps.

  24. Hello, I am doing my ee on computer science and the topic and my Research question are as follows: Topic: Biometrics and security RQ: Effectiveness of biometrics compared to other modern computer security methods. In the research, I am basically trying to investigate on 3 biometric methods compared to other common methods such as passwords,patterns.etc.I have a concern while doing an ee research on this. So far according to the sources, I think that if I only compare the methods of biometrics used won't be effective and require the coding or algorithm of the biometric authentication to verify the users. Please, can anyone guide me on how to go about this. I also wasn't able to find any good source code or SDK for fingerprint biometric system. (This is to compare the effectiveness of the algorithm and what flaw they have. ) Thanks.
  25. To provide some context: I am a junior at an IB school and I really want to write a Computer Science EE. The issue is my school doesn't offer IB computer science. I'm currently taking AP Computer Science and am part of a computer science club which competes regularly, so I'm pretty confident in my ability to write a Computer Science EE. Can anyone provide some insight? Thank you!
