  1. Hi guys, I have a little problem with my IAs. I mean, I am done with most of them but I am afraid that I don't get appropriate support from my teachers. I really don't want to complain, they're very nice and eager to read my drafts but the fact is that my school last year's average IB score was less than 30 and I am afraid that this was partially due to insufficient teachers' support. And I can't afford to any IB consultations cause they're so expensive. I am doing my best but I really don't want to score very low just because I was not told that there is something wrong with my IAs. I am mostly concerned with Physics, History and English A: Language and Literature. Is there anyone who would be willing to read them and tell if they're OK? I'd be eternally grateful
  2. I'm taking English A literature as one of my IB subjects and I was wondering whether the following research question for my EE would be relevant to my subject: How and why does the English language influence our way of thinking and hence, behaving in comparison to other languages?
  3. Hi pips!! I just wanna make sure... So, I have researched about Written Task 2 and according to my research, WT2 ONLY has to have the following: 1. Outline : includes the question, the section of the course, the text (e.g. novel, play) and the aim. 2. The essay However, my teacher told me that I should add an abstract of 200 words.

  4. Hello everyone, I'm struggling to write my English Literature Written Assignment, so any help at all will be very appreciated. My title is "How does Dorfman use the relationship between the gun and light to examine the theme of empowerment in "Death and the Maiden"?" I need help on structuring my essay like what should my three points be? Thank you so so much.
  5. I am looking for a university to go to in 2018. I am planning to go to med school once I finish the IB. However, I cannot afford to go to an expensive university in the UK or America. Does anyone know any places where I could go to university to do medicine in english at relatively low cost. Thank you.
  6. Hello Guys, I am totally new to this site but I am panicking it is 11:40 pm here right now and my IOP is due tomorrow. I know my theme and what I am doing it on but I have no idea how to structure my power point. I am doing a comparison and romantic poetry and jazz music, and how they were both expressing freedom in their own era. Thank you so much in advance if you can help!
  7. HELP I'm going to have to do an IOP in April. The teacher gave us 3 things that we can do our IOP on which are poems by Bruce Dawe, "Othello" by Shakespeare and "Things Fall apart" by Chinua Achebe. At first, I was planning to do my IOP on Dawe's poems cause I really like his poems but after I've read "Things fall apart" I am not sure for my decision anymore because I also like "things fall apart" a lot...and I realised that the protagonists of "Things Fall Apart" and "Othello" actually has a lot of similarities and the two books both have similar themes like the roles of women in the society and reputation. I am thinking that I could do a comparison on the theme of the roles of women on"Things Fall Apart" and "Othello" but I am not sure if this is a good idea or not... It is probably easier and less workload if I just focus on just one book or a poem... Any suggestions?
  8. Hi everyone! I have to choose a topic for my extended essay, and I was kind of thinking about doing it on stereotypes and how they affect society. For me,this topic falls into the English B spectrum, so I'll be doing it in that subject. The only problem I have with this topic is that I don't think it is the right one. I really want to do it on stereotypes, but I have to narrow it down a bit more. Do you have any idea how I could do this? Please feel free to give your opinion on my topic and suggest new ones!
  9. Hello! I'm a tenth-grade student planning on doing the IBDP for my junior and senior year. As we are beginning our second semester soon, we are required to pick out our subjects for IB. I had a couple of concerns as when I told people about the subjects I'm intending to take, they said I would face a hard time. I'm hoping to study engineering at university, hopefully, either chemical and biomolecular engineering. I'm also hoping to get into a top university as it would help me so much! The subjects I'm planning on doing are; -Physics HL -Math HL -Chemistry HL -Economics HL -English A Lit SL -Arabic B SL As you can see I really don't want to spend time on languages and I clearly want to focus on sciences and maths. If you have any concerns or advice I could use, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thank you
  10. What is a better subject to choose for the Extended Essay if I thinking of applying to law? Unfortunately, I don't have History HL. Economics HL English B HL Geography HL Russian A
  11. So far I've come up with three different approaches to what I want to work on for my EE; which is western animation. The movies that I have seen potential in for analysis are the ones mentioned in the questions. I need some feedback on which of these is more acceptable for an English Extended Essay (if any) and some suggestions on the wording/scope of them. The first was suggested to me by my adviser. Topic Question South American Settings How are South American settings explored in Postcolonial American Animated Films “The Road To El Dorado” and “Emperor’s New Groove”? Postcolonial Theory To what extent are Ancient World Cultures portrayed accurately in Postcolonial Animated Films “Moana” and “Kubo and The Two Strings”? Character Dynamics To what extent do the main characters in “The Road to El Dorado” and “The Emperor’s New Groove” interact through similar dynamics? Thank you!

  13. Hi, I'm in desperate need of help with my written task. I need to write my WT for part 1, and I've thought about pretending to be a politician and write a speech about animal rights, where I would try to use my language as effectively as possible to make the audience believe in me. Does this sound like an acceptable idea? We've had language and politics as a topic in class so I've therefore tried to connect it to that.
  14. Hello~ I am in 9th grade currently, and I am planning on applying at MIT and Harvard when I graduate. I heard that both of these schools look at your reports from grade 9 onwards. However, I am on the borderline of a 6 and 7 (6.9) for my semester 1 english a report. Will this be a 6 or a 7 for my final report? Should I also ask the teacher if there are any extra tasks I can do to raise my grade? Thanks
  15. Hey people, In few days I need to hand in my EE, the problem is I have done 3800 words but my teacher told me I won't pass because I am missing the artifact. I was thinking about analyzing few punk songs (my theme is actually talking about the influence of the movement on people throughout the years) and now I don't know is that a good idea? First I was thinking about documentary movies but they are all crappy quality and mostly don't show any influence on the society and now I'm stuck here without an artifact... what would you recommend me to do?

  17. Hey there, A friend of mine @notyouobviously takes English A: lang & lit and currently works on his Written Task 1. He was wondering if anyone could help him with his Written Task? He basically does something with speech and looks for an idea (because of I don't take this course, I am not very familiar with these things). Could you please give him some ideas about the speech for his Written Task? Any help/suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  18. Hey guys:) I need to start my extended essay soon, but I don't know what to write about, I am definitely doing it in english though. I have an idea, which is to analyse an album and talk about the literature in the album. For example, if I take the album "Vessel" by twenty one pilots, I could talk about the use of metaphors and highlighting the characters mind set. Is this a valid idea, or should I stay away from music completely Thanks for the help means a lot
  19. Hi, I'm a junior IB student and we have started looking into our Extended Essays for a little while now. As my topic I choose English specifically language. As a sort of an idea for my question my teacher and I decided upon, " How has social media influenced the portrayal of women today in society?" I found several sources, but I feel that it's so broad that it will be difficult to structure my essay. Furthermore, it seems like such a broad topic that I do not know what I will be arguing. I have been reading several examples to help me out and from what I've seen a lot of the essays are based on books and examining them. I was wondering if maybe I should center my question upon a book I really like. For instance, my favorite book is Divergent by Veronica Roth. I was wondering if maybe I could argue something along the lines of how Veronica Roth's portrayal of women within the novels is a form of feminism? I think this would benefit because it is my favorite book so I could really elaborate on this topic. If anyone could help me out on narrowing down my question or whether I should change it. Thank you!!
  20. Hi! My english teacher is making us do many passages in part 4. We are a class of 9 students and he is making us pickup chits with passages. He gave us 15 chits for an English Lang & Lit SL batch. Its just a pain to study all that and the curriculum document says we should do some 6 or 7 passages minimum. Do all teachers follow the minimum requirement or they do more passages than required? Thats so bad for students. Please help me so i can tell him.

  22. I am wondering if this would be a good subject combo: HL Economics HL Biology HL English (not sure yet if I want lang & lit or lit) SL Math SL Finnish SL Chemistry Unfortunately I have no idea where I want to study after the IB, or what I want to study. I am wondering if these seem like subject choices that wouldn't close too many doors for me. The thing that troubles me the most is if it is "useless" to take HL bio without taking HL chemistry with it. I don't enjoy chemistry that much, but then again I've always had horrible teachers which has drawn me away from the subject itself. Though in the IB I would have a new teacher. I really don't know if I should take chemistry at all or if it is important. Thank you for any replies in advance

  24. So I am a little confused how I demonstrate in my writing how meaning is created. For example, there may be a rapper singing about his identity and uses various techniques. I think I can spot them but how should I write about them? I find it's a very important part because it is judged in many marking criteria from the FOA to the WT to the EE. Help please!
