  1. We all know that Extended Essay is something we have to write in IB but I've been having difficulties figuring out if the topics I want to write about are accepted and which category they belong to. Human trafficking Theories about incidents such as Princess Diana's death About a specific serial killer Mental breakdown among teenagers Psychopaths and how their brain works theory about life Abortion Rape After Life
  2. I need help i decided to write my ee in spanish and i will also be the first one to write it in another language too. i need help with extended essay questions in spanish. some examples plss
  3. Hello, I need help deciding what topics to pursue. The topic I really want to do is how do the different isomers of butanol affect the yield of carboxylic acid in primary alcohol oxidation. I am planning to do some reflux experiments with this. Unfortunately, I thought this topic was well researched but it seems perhaps the mechanism has ok research but not the compound. So I am having research problems, but I can probably generate more theory since I essentially will talk about elements of molecular geometry that affect its oxidation. I have abundant ideas of further research topics for this if I down this route (ex. what if I use phenol or what if its the same formula but different pattern of bonds?). Currently, the research I have may suffice, but I will have to piece the research together (for example I have research talking about butanol as a compound, then combustion data..etc) to develop it to be adequate. The other topic I feel uncomfortable with, but A LOT of research is written about it. It involves seeing the efficiency of hydrogen production when using a strong base or strong acid. If I go down this route, I will be conducting experiments of electrolysis. I have found abundant research for base electrolytes, but it feels kind of answered and I just have a faint idea of how I am going to discuss this in theory. I would love to hear your opinions and thanks too!
  4. Hi! I just wanted to know if I could do my CS EE on random number generators. The basic idea is that I will code a two random number generators in different computer languages (Java and C++) and then compare the two. My CS teacher has no idea what number generators are and blatantly said yes... So do you guys think this topic is good for CS? Thanks guys! Appreciate it!
  5. I'm doing a bio ee and I gathered and processed all the data but I'm facing a dilemma, what should I do if there is no correlation/relationship between the independent variable and the dependent variable? I'm really scared that I'm going to fail, I'm hoping to get a B but I'd be happy with a C... Can someone that has experienced this give me some advice?? should I fake the data or should I explain why there's no correlation?
  6. Hello, my name is Martina and I really need someone to help me with the EE, since my supervisor is avoiding me. The subject I chose for the EE is biology. I'd like to come up with an experiment that would allow me to talk about human physiology, but without involving people. (i did the same for the IAs in bio and chem by using enzymes and antacids) I'm now thinking about using visking tubes for my experiment. They could represent either the gut or the dialysis machine. I suppose that I cannot use them as a gut model since I'm already talking about the digestive system in the abovementioned IAs. So my question is: How can I carry on an experiment on dialysis with visking tube? I could possibly use the substances that are present in the dialysis fluid (like sodium, potassium, calcium etc) and showing their diffusion through the tube as in the machine, but I wouldn't have variables. Do you guys have any ideas? I'd really appreciate your help, I'm really struggling
  7. Hello! I'm doing my extended essay on plant growth, but I only have 3 trials from my experimenting. I was told that theres hardly any statistical analysis that i can do without more than 5 trials, aside from calculating the mean, and I have no idea where to go with my data. I was planning on a lab based EE from primary data, but I'm not sure if thats possible anymore seeing as I dont have enough trials for in depth statistical analysis. Should I run more trials, or should I change direction with my EE and use my primary data to support secondary data, turning it into a research based essay instead of experimental?? Please help!! - Thanks, Cherry
  8. So in my IB english literature class we are studying sylvia plath's POEMS (not her novel). but for my EE i want to write about Sylvia Plath's NOVEL "the bell jar". is this allowed?
  9. Want to share the title of your extended essay? Or perhaps need help choosing one? This is the place. Psychology - The Psychology of Road Rage: A discussion of psychological explanations of road rage and policy implications.
  10. I am writing my EE on the negative effect of the US-China trade war on Apple, and I'm just wondering if anyone else has similar topics and I'd love to know how your EEs are going and help out with issues!

    BM EE Help

    Hey! I'm starting my EE research. My topic is about the acquisition of Flipkart. For the EE, is there any analytical tool that is suitable for analyzing the acquisition? Besides SWOT Analysis, any tool suggestions are welcome (both within and beyond the scope of the syllabus). Thanks:)
  12. Hello everyone, For my EE, I have decided to make it over the Nuremberg Trials and in History/Group 3, since I love learning about history and have am interested in law as well. My current research question is as follows: "To what extent were the Nuremberg Trials hampered by tensions between the Soviet judges and Western ones?" Basically, I wanted to analyze how the beginnings of Cold War tensions and oddities of the trials, such as how the Soviets themselves participated in the invasion of Poland, may have hindered the proceedings of the trials through the relations between the Soviet prosecutors and judges and those from the US, UK, and France. I am still in the process of researching, but for a vague idea for my argument, I would analyze the differences between the legal practices of the USSR and the West, which were pretty different, and events during the trial such as the Soviet judge "discussing" the invasion of Poland as a German indictment when they participated as well, and how this affected the trials and the audience. I would look at sources from both sides My questions are: Is my question appropriate for the EE? Is it too narrow or not narrow enough, and would I need to reword it? And would my argument be reasonable? (I pulled these questions off of the IB Survival EE Guide). Thanks!
  13. Hello, all who have clicked on this post I would like to simply ask you one question about my ee, specifically whether you guys think its tooo simple or not. So, for my extended essay, I've chosen to do physics (o god), and the sub-topic of astrophysics (double o god), I have come up with an idea for my ee, which is Investigating how the Luminosity, Mass and Surface Temperature of Main Sequence stars are interconnected. Is this too simple for an ee, or do you guys believe it has the potential to be a good if not decent ee? Oh, and the essay will be a database EE, (creating an experiment, and fitting data to come with some conclusion) (I won't go over the specifics such as research question and experiment that I will do since I fear plagiarism.) As a side note I do want to study astrophysics in university, I know that writing an astrophysics ee in ib is suicidal, but I wanna do it because i believe its a good challenge. So taking all that into consideration, what do you all think? Thank you, - a stranger of the internet
  14. Hi, I’m doing my EE on the yellow wallpaper and the bell jar, but I’m having trouble formulating my question. Currently I have something along the lines of “How do Sylvia Plath and Charlotte Perkins use symbolism of the bell jar and the yellow wallpaper to represent female entrapment and mania”. It’s very rough and I really need some help refining it and also advice as to how I should go on from here. Thank you!
  15. So I am having trouble narrowing my question, I want to do my extended essay about the coral reefs dying and how this can affect the human kind. Is this a good topic? Im confused on how to make a RQ out of this.. any advice would help, thank you.
  16. My EE was due a few days ago but I still can't help but think and worry about it. I wrote my EE within a couple of hours without discussing it with my supervisor because I had made a new one a few days before the final submission. I'm really stressed out at this point. I know I'm the only one to blame for doing this to myself but I DO NOT want an E on my EE. My word limit was 3.9k words, my essay was relevant to the proposed question, I followed a proper structure for my essay and referenced everything that had to be referenced yet I'm still scared because my analysis of the text is quite repetitive. I mean, the texts that I analysed had a few similar points that related to my question, but still. And I even did my font in calibri, 1.5 spaced and my table of content is size 16, and my referencing is a mixture of Harvard and Chicago fml. I don't know what to do at this point honestly, I screwed myself over and I'll have to wait a few months until I finish my exams and everything to see whether I failed. This stress caused by the EE would be biting me on the back during the exams and I'm afraid I won't be able to perform well. I already know what I want to do in Uni but this EE is really putting my hopes down. How likely is it for someone to fail the EE? And how exactly do you fail the EE? I'm like, really really really stressed out here.
  17. This is quite a long story but I'm going to make it as short as possible. So when I first got my EE form, I put English Literature as my subject and put my two suggested supervisors who are both familiar with the subject. However, I was given a completely different supervisor who bases her teaching on VA. Though she told me I can focus on any subject like History, English or VA since she majors on them on the first meeting I had with her. Moreover, the DP Coordinator a few months ago, asked what subject my EE was and I said English whilst I had already submitted a VA EE. I don't really know why I did that, I just didn't have a proper RQ at the time and my supervisor barely gave me any advice so I just went along with it so I could at least provide the EE Coordinator with some essay for the draft. But when I received the feedback for my VA EE, my SP literally made me change the whole focus of my research question, so I have to basically restart again before the final submission in four days. Instead of doing it on VA, I went back to my original EE subject which was on English Literature. I'm a lot more comfortable on basing my EE on English since I'm not very familiar with Art terms as much as I am with literary techniques. But the problem is that my supervisor is refusing to give me feedback on the topic because she claims she already gave her form in and it was based on my VA EE AND now she apparently can't mark my English EE because she hasn't taught English in her life before. (literally, the other person who has her for a SP did it on English?!?!?) Now the DP & EE Coordinator want me to stick with my VA EE and give the fees to change my registration from English to a VA EE. Like, I understand I made a mistake by submitting a VA EE when I wrote English down, but can't they just accept my new English EE and forget about the rest? I still have a few days to receive feedback, I don't really see what their issue is. So idk, I'm really confused. Should I just continue with making a new VA EE or just keep pestering them to accept my new English EE? My English teacher is willing to give me feedback for it, anyways. I seriously don't have time to fix the VA EE anymore, but with English, I'm a LOT more comfortable and confident doing it. Also, is it actually a rule to pay a fee of $500 to change the subject registration sent to the IB? My school insists that I pay for it.

    Film EE

    so I've been thinking lots about what to do for my ee, and I was really interested in doing film, but they don't teach it at my school. I was wondering if there are any helpful textbooks for basic film studies or anything for the question i was planning to do, "How does the development of special effects, such as cgi and greenscreen, impact intergenerational appreciation for movies?" Even my question needs a little work, so if there's any other questions that can be made from a topic like this, that would be great.
  19. Hi, I'm doing my EE in English A Literature and am going to focus on something to do with Macbeth. Would I have to compare this to another of Shakespeare's works or can I solely look at Shakespeare's characterisation in Macbeth? Which would give me more marks? Thanks
  20. I am interested in knowing how others structured their science discussion section. In my EE I've conducted an experiment to see how three different factors that all affect the rate of transpiration in trees change the rate when combined. The experiment went smoothly and I'm halfway into finishing my EE but I'm having troubles with writing the discussion part. I know that a lot of this part of the EE has to do with comparing your results with data you can find from other sources and discuss why your data and the other data may differ for example. I've been reading scientific publication online for the past week but I am unable to find studies on the effect of combination of these factors on the rate of transpiration in trees - I've only found studies on the effect of one factor at a time - and I'm wondering if someone has any ideas on another approach than comparing results that I could consider.
  21. Hello everyone, I am a doing DP1 at the moment and I would like to hear some opinions about my research question in biology. My research question is: "Is there a significant difference between gamers and non-gamers reaction time?". I will use a click test which records the reaction time of when someone clicks on the computer screen when it changes to green. Please tell me if I should be more specific or what I could improve in this question. Thank you very much!
  22. Dear IB survival community, I am currently planning my Economics EE. I chose to investigate the market structure of my local coffee shop industry. I think this is a topic which allows for lots of primary research, however, I definitely want to include some relevant secondary sources in my essay as well. My supervisor has told me to look into economic books that deal with market structure analysis. Does anyone have any suggestions for that matter? Or any other useful tips or resources I could use for my essay?
  23. Hello everyone, I am a French-Canadian studying IB in Estonia; I need help to find some topics and ideas to make a great research question for my EE in biology. I thought I could do a simple experiment which would give me a sufficient amount of data; it must be simple because as you know, we have a lot more to do than just the EE haha . My field of interest includes food, bacteria, drugs, human and animal physiology, microbiology, medicine, hormones, immune system and enzymes. If you have any ideas for interesting topics, experiments or ideas to make a great research question, please let me know in the comment section below. Thank you very much and have a fantastic day.
  24. Hi, I have decided to do my EE on psychology, and could it be more into criminal psychology? I am asking here because my teacher was like I will check that and he never gave me the answer also do I have to conduct any experiment for my EE? My friend said that I have to do the experiment on which I will write EE (I know that I have to do an experiment for IA but what about EE)??
