  1. Hi guys!! Im retaking HL Chemistry and SL Math this upcoming November and I was wondering if there is any advice anybody could give me?.. Or if there is anybody in the same position as me who is also retaking one of the subjects in November:) If you guys have any advice regarding possible online review courses, materials you recommend, or just the nature of the November examinations I would really really appreciate it. Thank you!!☺️
  2. Hello, I'm new to this whole website so I'm not really sure how it works here. But anyways, I've got a question: What's the best way to practice analysing, comparing and contrasting two texts? Recently I realised that I have this issue with me where I'm not able to think quickly or make sense when I write on paper (my sentences are always jumbled up, disorganised). I perform great with assessment tasks but writing is a bit of difficulty. Conventionally, I use my laptop to write the answers to the questions then transfer it to my paper, however I won't be allowed to do this during the actual exams, thus I'm quite nervous about my ability to perform an excellent result. So my only option is to start practicing from now, I want to be able to get used to it and hopefully improve by the end of next year, I just need some tips on improvement (maybe some past papers I can download to practice on them), so I was hoping if you guys could help me thanks!
  3. Hi everyone, I got my IB results today and i did not pass sadly. However, history is my 7th subject and if I switch it with my 6th subject which is French I would pass. Im just wondering if its a thing that could be done so that history would be on my actual diploma and French be the additional subject. Thank you guys in advance

    IB SUCKS

    IB sucks. Free time doesn't exist in the IB. 6 subjects are more than enough especially when they' re not related to your studies e.g ( When someone wants to study engineering, social sciences are waste of time)
  5. On the IB Chemistry Syllabus (or any experimental science for that matter), there is a section that is titled "Utilization". It just refers to other practical links to the concepts in each chapter. Are we supposed to know these links for the actual exam? Thanks!
  6. Hey! So I was both happy and unhappy with some of my exam grades for my mocks. I was unhappy mostly with my biology and math mock exam grades, my first exam is Math, on May 2. I was wondering, is it possible to highly improve on the real exams then mocks? I am applying in Australia so only my real exam grades matter. Has anyone really improved on their real exams compared to their mocks?
  7. Hey guys. It’s my first year of DP. I’ve gotten an overall score of 6 in my previous semester, and I seemed to be surviving all right. But in the past few tests I took, I got a 2 and a 3. It felt like I understood the concepts properly and I didn’t have that much of an issue answering the homework and past exam questions that my teacher prepares before tests. She also seemed concerned about my grades. I’ve spoken to her, and she said that I would just have to keep on doing more work. There is only a few months before the end of the first year. I don’t understand why I’m struggling so much all the sudden, and dropping to studies now would require a lot of catchup (I was never a math guy; even if they’re stuff I’ve learnt before, I’ll still have troubles revising them after missing out for so long). Do any of my fellow warriors of the Depression Programme have an advice on what I should do, and perhaps a reason to why I’m doing so bad now? Thanks.
  8. I have the exams in 1 month and did not start studying yet. I am extremely scared about the exams and dont believe i have sufficient time to study for them properly. I do math hl and physics hl and still did not revise anything. I believe i will fail the exams or get really low grades. I may be dramatic but i dont know what to do. Do i have time? How can i do this?
  9. Hello, I'm thinking about doing retakes since I changed my plans and want to start studying dentistry. When I was in high school, I wanted to become a teacher but things have changed.. My question is simple: Did you regret retakes? yes or no, and why? And for those that succeeded in their retakes, how did you manage, any tips? How did you study? Anything special to keep in mind? Changes in syllabus, rules etc etc? Thanks!
  10. Does anyone recommend or actually websites or apps to study for their exams? Ive looked into free things such as quizlet but am not sure how useful they actually are. And does anyone use paid things such as kognity? The price is quiet steep and Id like to know if its actually worth paying the money or simply studying the oldschool way. Thanks
  11. Hi! I'm new to the IB and i'll be starting it in a few weeks. I have no idea what to expect and I've heard from a lot of people that the ib is very difficult. I'm taking: HL: English Lang and Lit A Chem Film SL: Maths Psychology Chinese B If anyone knows anything about these subjects please let me know about your experience! I was also wondering about the IA, and when you do it? Is it in your first year of IB or the second? Thank you so much!
  12. Hello! I am a French student doing the IB and I am doing a survey to complete my math studies IA. I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to answer my survey. https://goo.gl/forms/KIMSFSzwaWuudcPz2 Thank you, Thibault
  13. I struggle the most with the mechanics part of the course and I dislike to get dirty with deriving equations, especially since Im slow. Could I not just remember the equations for let´s say, projectile motion that are not included in the booklet and just plug in in stuff during the exam, or will I be penalized?
  14. Hi guys, I'm currently doing the IB in Iran. I'm self-studying two of my higher level subjects in Psychology HL and Economics HL. So far, I've focused on my other 4 subjects so I'm a bit behind. Sadly, economics and psychology are the subjects that are most important to me and I've focused on them the least. For the may exams, I wanted to give my other 4 subject examinations and then give psychology and economics in November 2018. The reason that I can't give them in my school in Iran is that I would become a soldier(conscription in Iran stating that all men aged 18 and above must attend the army for a minimum of two years) and that I would have to leave 1-2 months before my 18th birthday. So basically, my question is 1) Can I give 4 of my exams at one school and the other 2 at another IB school? 2) If so can anyone give me the email of their IB coordinator so I can contact them for transferring just for the November 2018 exams (just giving psychology and economics HL in November)? PS. I have no problem with self-studying these subjects, I just wanted more time so I could get a higher mark in November. My email is [email protected] Thanks Everyone.
  15. I need your advice on this one guys, here's the somewhat summarized story: So I went to this IB school abroad for a year and came back home for the summer, turns out my parents ran out of money and now I've been out of school for 3 months and I'm still back home. IA's started about a month and a half ago and I was working on my history IA from home, Biology IA started and after talking to the teacher he told me the coordinator told him that I'm not allowed to work on them from home because of the "academic honesty" policy, they then asked my parents to give them another date; they did, and it's in 20 days, the school said that's the final delay date I can have and that if I don't get there by then I'm out and have to take 2nd year next year. I highly doubt my parents can can renew my visa, do what I need to do and get on a plane within that period of time, so I feel like the end is just inevitable. The thing is, now I feel like I've completely lost a chance at anything. I'm done, it's over...what's the point now? I recently got a message saying that even if I go over there on the final date I'm still not allowed to take the exams and I'll just be a "normal" student and will have to start my 2nd year next year anyways...what do I do? Go there anyway and waste my time? The teachers don't teach anything useful for the exams except for maybe 2-3, and even then they can't cover as much as independent studying could because of how big the class is. Aren't I better off spending hundreds of dollars and ordering the books myself and paying for the ridiculous shipping fee's and paying someone to let me print out all the past papers and just studying by myself at home? Then comes the issue of how stressful life is back home, it's nearly impossible to keep focus without something happening, or get distracted by all the different things to do, or procrastinate and cry myself to sleep because of how messed up everything is.

    Biology IA

    Hello, I'm in the process of choosing my IA question, I do biology standard level and was wondering if this topic fits in the syllabus for sl: What is the effect of soil moisture on the length of ribwort plantain leaves? Thank you
  20. Hi I wanted to ask if one were to decide to retake IB exams, does one have to do it for all your 6 subjects? Or can you choose to do only a select few? And can you also retake the IB exams even if you're not in failing conditions?
  21. I want to know if i get a level 2 in one of my higher level subjects, will i fail the diploma? but i pass 12 marks in total for higher level subject.
  22. Step 1 :> Preparing to Study (a) Start studying early. Give yourself more than enough time to review the material that was covered in class. You might want to gauge how soon to start studying by how much material you need to review. (b) Read through the entirety of your notes that will be on the exam. It will refresh your memory of the material and help you remember what you learned. (c) Get some good notes. If you’re not a good note taker, or if there are “holes” in your notes, then ask a friend if you can copy his or her notes. Good notes can make all the difference when you’re studying. (d) Ask your teacher about the test material. One of the easiest ways to begin your studying process is to find out what is on the test directly from your teacher. Step 2 :> Reviewing the Information (a) Re-read your notes. This time re-read your notes for understanding. In other words, you are going to study your notes. Start with the most basic information. (b) Take notes while you study. Yes, take even more notes. You can highlight and underline the information as well, but writing the information down really helps you retain it better. (c) Review your syllabus. The syllabus is an outline of everything that you should have learned over the course of the class. It’s a good place to start to understand major ideas and topics that you should be learning from the class. (d) Write down the major topics and themes that you pulled out of the syllabus. Then, go through your notes to see if you have any notes at all on those topics. Once again, if you don’t, you should ask someone for notes on those topics, and re-read the sections in the book pertaining to those topics. (e) Review study guides and sections. In some books, each chapter has a short review or summary. This is a great place to quickly review and get a gist of a concept. Of course, if you have no idea what the summary is referring to or you need more details to jog your memory, refer to the study guide in the back of the book. (f) Re-read important selections of the textbook. All of the titled sections of the book from your syllabus should be re-read so that you can pull out important information. Step 3 :> Preparing for the Exam (a) Make flash cards. After you have taken notes from studying all of your materials including the book and your notes, use that information to make flash cards. (Grab an index card, or cut paper into squares to use as a flashcard.) Turn statements into questions. (b) Quiz yourself. Once everything is written down on flashcards, quiz yourself with the cards. Keep reviewing the questions that you get wrong until you get them right. (c) Do practice questions. This is especially helpful for subjects such as math. Practice doing the questions in the book that you were assigned for homework. Do extra questions in the back of the book. Re-do questions that you got wrong, and try to figure out why you got them wrong. Do practice questions until you feel more comfortable with subject matter.
  23. Hello guys, I am new both to this blog and to the IB. There is something that troubles me a lot these days on literary criticism exams that we will sit. Can we apply the principles of critical theory in our commentary, or is it not encouraged? In our class, there are not a lot of people who know critical theory and our teacher seems to encourage an in-depth examination of the literary text at hand in which we are simply building meaning from the text, as a critic with a New Critical approach would do, and as far as I know such an attitude is encouraged in normal US high schools as well. However, I do not wish to engage in such banal and aloof interpretation and wish to use and experiment with other theories, such as feminist critical theory, Marxist critical theory or even deconstruction. Daring to go further, I wish to postulate my own way of interpreting literary texts. I do not know if there is an official, IB-approved literature book discussing such matters- in fact, I know for certain that there is none for Turkish A1, which I am taking as my Language A1 course. What are your experiences concerning literary analysis? Were you allowed to engage in more complex sorts of criticism, or even tried to have the text play against itself in a deconstructionist sense? What did the examiners think?
  24. Hi! I would like to ask you how did you find the may 2017 exams in physics. I think that were more difficult than may 2016. Also, in which case someone fails and need to go to november exams? Finally for which reason should we be examined in 2 exams in a day (for example Physics and psychology were examined the same day) ? Thank you
  25. For the Biology exam, I wrote outside the boxes because there wasn't enough space for me for me to finish all my answers. I have written outside of the boxes on all my tests, and mock exams, and no teacher has commented on the fact that I did this. I did not hear that they don't, until someone mentioned this today. Does this mean none of my answers will be marked?
