  1. 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.
  2. Hi there! I had a question on how I should prepare for my Math SL exam which is on May 5th. I was planning on completing all question banks for each unit, going over lessons and textbook questions. Do you think that is enough? I understand a lot of people do past papers however, if I complete all the questions in the questionbank, isn't that basically the same thing because those are past questions as well? Or is there a big difference between doing past papers and question banks? Please let me know! Thank you
  3. 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.

    TOK!!!

    Okay, so for the knowledge question, I had some trouble coming up with a question. At one point, the ToK teacher wanted an update on my presentation and she wasn't satisfied with my knowledge question, so she basically helped me come up with one. After a few days, I realised the KQ that my teacher had given me is from the prescribed title for the ToK Essay of the same year and so I got worried and approached her. When I told her about the issue, she said she'll check and make sure for me. So after another few days, I went up to ask her if it was fine using that question and she said it was. I forgot all about it up until now and I'm so paranoid that I'll lose my diploma because of it. I overthink a lot of scenarios in my head and it's been bugging me a lot recently and it isn't helpful as I'm having my final exams next week. I know that everything I've used from others is cited but I still get scared from plagiarism for some reason (??). Is it likely that the IB will eliminate my diploma because of this? I'm really scared and worried because I'm actually trying really hard with my studying and I don't want it to go down by the drain just like that.
  5. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has good structures of writing paragraphs for both HL English papers?
  6. Hi everyone. This is the second day of my exams. I have just realised that I have forgotten to fill in the candidate number and name on each of the 4 page answer booklets attached. I have so far completed my English A Lang and Lit Paper 1 and 2 (both missing name and candidate number) and Economics all papers (1 and 2 missing candidate number and name). I am deathly worried. My coordinator claims that the exams are sealed in the exam room and sent off to Cardiff via Fedex immediately so she cant do anything about it. In our school, we do have the cover sheets for our exams, which contains our personal details, name and candidate number, and is connected to my response answer booklets (who do not have name or candidate number on them) via a strap of string. I am worried that it will get separated, either during transport or during scanning, and my papers will not be valid anymore. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    notes for topic 11

    Hello, I'm in desperate need for notes for causes and effects of 20th century wars topic (ww1 and ww2), can anyone help me pleaseee
  8. What is Nature of Science? It seems like the IB is beginning to ask more and more questions on it in the exams. Is there anything that I need to know or understand for it? I know that you can just use some common sense and logic to answer these types of questions, but is there any way to prepare?
  9. Hello, I am an 11th grader taking IB HL Physics 1. I plan on taking AP and IB tests. I need to sign up for AP tests very soon, and I want to have the AP tests done before applying to college next year. If I take IB HL 1 physics, will that prepare me for the AP Physics C mech exam? or just the AP Alg 2 exam? or should I be doing at least a little bit of independent study?
  10. Well, is it possible? I get good okayish grades in every other subject, but I'm bound to get a 1 in math studies. I've worked hard in math but I'm just not a math kind of guy, and I've heard a sufficient grade average makes up for a 1 in math, but I've seen people on here claim a single 1 keeps you from getting the diploma. Can I get a final verdict?

    So i got my november retake results and i am 5 marks away from a higher grade in history, i need one point to get 24 points. i registered for the may exams to retake, so what is the risk? i have the money, ( starting work was so beneficial ) should i just send my papers? has anyone ever miraculously gotten a higher point from like an everage of 5 marks increase? (i legit know i did good and wrote my ass off with quotes and dates, and historians, i think someone is biased and i keep getting the same teacher that corrects my stuff cause i legit don't understand) help
  12. For the 2020 exams, group 2 changed. My teachers haven't really explained what the changes were, nor how and what we have to learn for the exams. Since there are no past papers (or at least that I know of), I am kind of lost. For our lang B class, we are talking about sharing the planet. It feels a bit odd, because I haven't found the connection with learning a language yet. Does anyone know anything more specific about the changes in the curriculum or how we are going to be assessed? Thanks
  13. 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!!☺️
  14. 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!
  15. 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)
  17. 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!
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. 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!
  22. 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
  23. 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!
  24. 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
  25. 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?
