  1. Hello! I'm planning on doing my extended essay on English Literature but I don't have any books or question yet. I am interested in American literature in the 20th century and I'm hoping I can talk about something from then. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  2. Hello all, I am a DP2 student from New Zealand undertaking English A Literature. In second half of last year, all DP1 English students uploaded their final Work in Translation (WIT) essay to the school and received a predicted grade. From what I heard, students are to upload the final copy of their WIT to the IBIS by themselves. I have heard anecdotes of students being able to edit their WIT after the due date set by the school (it's just that teachers will no longer provide feedback). However, our IB coordinator says that our teachers will check to make sure that we upload a copy that's identical to what we handed in to the school, and only minor formatting errors can be fixed. I'm wondering if this is true for all the other IB schools. It's noteworthy that during a information session for DP2 students, our IB coordinator said that we must be careful not to upload the draft version of our WIT, in which case the draft will be marked and we will likely be awarded a lower grade than what we could have gotten with the final. From this, it can be inferred that uploading a different final copy to what we handed to the school should not result in a disqualification, and that the IB will mark whatever we hand in. Does anyone know if the school is able to check exactly what we've uploaded to the IBIS? If not, would it be safe for me to secretly upload a further-edited copy to the IBIS and not get caught by my school? Any reply would be highly appreciated.
  3. Hi, I am in year 10 this year and I have recently got my grade back for my first english reflection which I had recieved a 'C' in and the teacher had to talk to me about it. My exam is on writing a reflection but in the voice of another character in the book that I studied which is 'The Professor and the Housekeeper. I did a practice paragraph but the comments I got was that it was more of a recount not a reflection, and I'm stressed out now because I want to do good in this exam to bring up my mark. If anyone has any good tips for my reflection or just mentally please add a comment. Thank you very much!
  4. Hi all. I'm planning on doing an EE in English, category 1. What are your thoughts on my RQ- at the moment my biggest concern is that it might be too descriptive rather than analytical, in terms of language. How does delusion influence characters' motives and perceptions of reality in Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things? My supervisor actually advised me to do something along the lines of the question above. However, I originally planned on doing the question below, but she advised that there may not be enough to talk about. What are your thoughts? Is the question above acceptable? How is delusion portrayed through symbolism and motifs in Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things?
  5. So, my EE's due tomorrow 11:59 p.m. I know it's pretty late but I have to do it. And I haven't done any of it yet. Luckily, I've got a semi-plan outline, which looks like a table of contents, but I just can't get started. Each time I think of starting, I fear that somewhere along I realize how crappy my essay is and might have to start from scratch. My essay's going to be a comparison essay between Siddhartha and lord of the Flies. I'm going to be exploring the theme 'ambition' in the essay. Do you guys think this is a good idea? or is there any other theme that might be easier to explore? another book i have is Macbeth, which I'm not using for the above mentioned theme but if you guys suggest a better one i can start from scratch since i don't have anything done anyway If you guys find that 'ambition' is an okay theme to explore in Siddhartha and Lord of the Flies, could you guys just me with where I could get sources for Siddhartha and ambition... or would Macbeth suit this theme more? by ambition in siddhartha, i meant like how he wants to find enlightenment and he goes to great extent to do so, giving up lots of thing, etc. So what d'you guy say? do i stick with ambition in lord of the flies and siddhartha or switch either the theme or the book (macbeth is my other choice)? if i stick with, where could i find for siddhartha? if i change the theme, which should i use? and don't be afraid to suggest some pretty big changes since i don't have anything anyway so i can always change it
  6. HI IM WRITING AN ENGLISH GROUP 3 EXTENDED ESSAY AND MY BROAD TOPIC IS GRETA THUNBERG SPEECHES. I have to come up with a list of 4-6 specificic subtopics to explore in my EE by tomorrow. Have any of yall written an EE about speeches?? Maybe I could compare her to someone else, but I don't know who? Would simply analyzing a few different famous speeches (like her ted talk, her un speech, EU speech, etc.) be enough??? PLEASE RESPOND IM VERY STRESSED RN
  7. Hey! I have decided to do my extended essay in English Lang & Lit, i have decided my topic and the novel i'm gonna analyse. I was thinking of the novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, and i wanted to explore the topic of obsession and the way obsession is portrayed by the characters in the novel or the way the author incorporated obsession in the novel and its accuracy, considering the time this book was written. what do you guys think about the topic and the choice of this novel ? All help is useful ! 🙂
  8. For the Hl english Lit paper 2, we have to read 4 books and know them thoroughly and this can be quite difficult considering all the things we need to remember. So, I was thinking if everyone could lists the books they are doing the people with the same books could help each other out by exchanging quotes, analysis and other stuff regarding the books. We could really help each other out here and make studying for english a lot easier. My books: The road Oryx and Crake Jungle books Beloved
  9. I have an essay due soon. I basically have to write about Tom from the Great Gatsby. What do i need to know about him? Give me as much information as possible, and your thoughts on him. What is his role? Purpose? Maybe a bit of context (his past)? All help is appreciated.
  10. Okay so after my first year ended i had the following results: B/M SL 7 German B SL 7 Chem SL 7 English HL 6 Economics HL 7 Math HL 3 My math isn't weak but I'm not able to get enough time to practice so that I adapt myself to doing HL level problems in the short time. In the future I want to do either eco or english as my major. I'm not planning on going to the UK. Only the US, Canada and Singapore. Everyone says if I drop Math HL and take B/M HL it will make me look bad in front of colleges because my course won't be rigorous enough. What should I do? Keep looking for a possible 5 in Math HL and spend a lot of time or an easy 7 in SL math? Please help.
  11. Guys, I am currently doing my written task and I am asked to write about the linguistic style of a poet. I have done it, but now I need to do my 200 words rationale. Can you guys explain to me about what I should write for the rationale? Like, why did I choose that poet and what else should I write?
  12. Hey everyone I'm just here to release my thoughts and worries cause they're just building up and get some advice (hopefully from people who have already finished IB or people who are going through the same thing) I just gave in my extended essay on literature and I'm kind of freaking out. I wrote it over the summer to save me time from worrying about it last minute and finished it by being told that we had to cite anything we PARAPHRASED. I did not know this. Therefore, I went back, changed and cited all the things that I KNOW weren't my ideas but I guess I was kinda lucky since most of it was all mine anyway. What I'm scared of, however, is I'm writing it on a very popular book with very similar opinions on it. I'm worried that something I wrote would be similar to something someone else wrote online even though I didn't take anything from it. I'm also very worried that I missed something whilst referencing. I know damn well I didn't copy anything word for word besides quotes and tried to cite everything I took from online. Our school still haven't run anything through turn it in or wtv but I'm hoping they would notify us if anything looks unusual. I just need advice cause I'm really not in the mood to lose my diploma over something that I didn't even intend on happening.
  13. Hello, I just finished the paper 1 for English A HL (text comparison). I wrote about question 2(text C and D) but only after submitting did I realize that I referred to the two texts in question 2 as text A and B throughout my whole analysis. I’m extremely scared now that the examiners will mark my paper based on it being text A and B or penalize me in any way. However, I did write question 2 at the box on the left hand column of the response paper. If there’s any English A HL examiners or someone who have made this mistake or anyone who knows about this, PLEASE tell me if the examiners will mark it based on me writing question 2 on the box or based on me mentioning text A and text B(question 1), and will I get penalized in any way?
  14. Right. So. I have the essay. It's around 3500 words at the moment which is pretty great because I have space for this, but my supervisor told me to completely re-do my introduction. I get why and I have a plan on what to include in it, I just can't come up with a way to start the introduction. So I'm literally stuck on the first sentence of my EE. I'd like to ask if anyone could share the first one or two sentences of their EEs, it'd help lots for some inspiration! If it's of any interest, my research question is "How does the sociocultural context affect the development of mental illness in [novel 1] and [novel 2]?" and I'm focusing on the aspects of family and friends (close circle), medical professionals at psychiatric hospitals, and the culture at large. Thanks in advance
  15. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has good structures of writing paragraphs for both HL English papers?
  16. Hey! I was wondering if anyone has the Prescribed List of Authors (PLA) and the Prescribed List of Translations (PLT) for English A: Language and Literature? Our English teacher left the school very suddenly, and we currently have no English teacher to turn to for any resources as of yet (I'm in DP 2)! I was hoping to get a head start on figuring out the subject myself, and it would be very helpful if I could get these two documents. I've been trying to find them online, but I can't seem to locate the files. Also, if you have any tips to learning English A: Lang & Lit, or just general tips for the IOC, FOA, Written Task or tests in general they will be more than appreciated!
  17. Hey, Anyone starting IB 1 in September 2019, what are your choices? I'm taking: HL Music HL English Literature HL History SL Maths SL Italian SL Physics
  18. how can i analyze a science fiction fantasy novel for my extended essay and what do i analyze exactly? Need help!
  19. 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.
  20. Hey, I am currently in Grade 10 doing my MYP at an International School in Germany. I joined the IB system in January 2018 (which means I am at the school for 1 1/2 years now). Right at the beginning, I was offered to go to the English A course, however, I chose not to because I wanted to focus on the other subjects as everything was in a different language (used to study at a German School). After I finished 9th grade, (transferred into 10th) my English teacher offered me to move up again, but my family situation is quite tricky, so I missed the deadline and therefore stayed in English B ): A few months into 10th grade, I finally decided to talk to my English teacher and the DP coordinator to switch, but they told me it is not possible during the year so I stayed. I am thinking about moving, and therefore I would need to go to a different school (also IBDP) but they don't offer German A which is why I would need to move up to English A and take German as a second language (self-taught only offered as SL). My question is whether or not it is still possible to change from English B to English A, right before the DP. Thanks in advance!
  21. So I just had my 11DP mock exams and I got a 5 in my English compare and contrast essay. I don't feel totally disappointed, but I feel like I can get a better grade if I just knew how to improve myself. My teacher doesn't really teach us anything :)))) like what to do differently. I can't get a copy of the mock paper to post here, but in general, do you guys have any tips? I would like to see myself doing better in the future.
  22. Hey guys, Today I got the results for my IOC (English A lang and lit SL). My teacher graded it 19/30. Is it good? What grade can I get for May 2020 Session? What can I do if I don't agree with the teacher's grade? Thank you!
  23. HEY GUYS THIS IS AN S.O.S SITUATION!!! Do any of you know how magical realism in chronicle of a death foretold is able to convey the fact that the truth is invariably impossible to know? As of right now, I only have 2 quotations and i'm really lost as well.
  24. I am an Australian and American citizen studying in HK and I am interested in universities in Australia and the UK. Do I need IELTS for that?
  25. Hi, I'm planning to write my EE based on my English B subject. I'm actually having quite a hard time forming a solid question, but I've thought of a couple of topics. - the book "No Longer Human" by Dazai Osamu. I could talk about how the author showcases the struggle of the main character, a social outcast, trying to fit in the society, before he decided to commit suicide. -"Animal Farm/1984" by George Orwell and how it reflects the modern society/government. Since I'm living in Thailand I'd mainly focus on the Thai politics. -How mental illness was portrayed by the show "13 reasons why," and what impact it may have on the viewers. These are the topics I've thought about so far. I really want to start my EE as soon as possible, but I'm still not confident about my research questions/topics. Please take some time to help me out. Thanks.
