  7. I'm planning on writing my History Extended Essay on the rise of the Ottoman Empire or the fall of Al-Andalus and I was hoping to get some feedback on my research questions.

  8. So I would really like it if I finished my extended essay over the summer or at least finish a big chunk of it. I came to the conclusion that I want to write my extended essay about cyber security of something similar to that. I've done some research and I think I want my essay to be about how cyber attacks have affected millions of people and businesses and stuff such as the past cyber attacks on Google, VISA, Mastercard and so on. I'm not quite sure what my question should be though. The essay will probably be using the IB subjects CS/Business or CS alone. I would really appreciate you guys helping me! Thanks! Update: Thanks for the reply Nomenclature I actually didn't realise that my EE can't be interdisciplinary so I appreciate you letting me know. After reading more about my topic I have come to choose this as my question: " To What Extent Can Hackers Exploit The Weakness of SSL Encryption To Slide By Standard Perimeter Defences? I'm still not sure...what do you guys think? Feedback much appreciated.
  9. I would like to make a research question but I don't know how to reword it and I'm stuck... can someone please help me with reworking my research question? Here's what I'm doing: My current research question is in below [Research question] How do power dynamics impacts the character's genders through companionship, inequality, and Discrimination throughout the novel Of Mice and Men? [Overview of the explanation] Steinbeck used the characters in the book “The mice and men” to show the living standard of the farmers during this time period. Which the book highlights the importance of (forgot to include that) companionship, discrimination, and gender inequality. Steinbeck used George and Lennie to represent companionship, Crook, and Candy to represent discrimination, and Curley's wife to represent gender Inequality. So maybe I'm going to start my page: Introduction --> companionship --> Discrimination --> Gender equality --> Conclusion --> Reference Resource. Can someone help me reword my EE question, i'll be really helpful if you help me asap

  12. Hi everyone. First time poster here so sorry if I get something wrong! I've thought a lot about what I want to do for my extended essay and finally got it narrowed down to "something about religious themes and/or symbolism in CS Lewis' works". Obviously that's way too vague. My two questions are; 1. Would it be better to write just about the Chronicles of Narnia? On the one hand, books like The Screwtape Letters are too obviously about religion, but on the other hand, I don't want to make it too narrow and not have enough to write about, or seem too focused on his more popular work. 2. How can I make "something about religious themes and/or symbolism" more specific? I'm hopefully not sounding like I'm asking anyone to write my RQ for me - what I mean is, I don't even know where to start really with narrowing it down. I feel like it would be really easy to accidentally choose a question that would lend itself to just listing things rather than analysing - that's one of the things I'm most worried about. Thanks in advance for your help! Mezoc
  13. Hellooo, I'm in the process of creating my proposal for EE, I'm choosing Business Management, with the following research question, To what extent would a merger between Yahoo Japan and Line be successful in increasing market share in order to tackle competition? falling in the topic Marketing Planning Does this seem focused enough for a research question for Business Management? And does my topic relate to my research question? And if it isn't, can anyone give me suggestions on how to fix my research question? (I'm sobbing rn hahaha)
  14. 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?
  15. Hello everyone. I am writing my extended essay in history. I am interested in aviation (mostly after ww2) and also about the eastern bloc during the coldwar. Does somebody know of a topic that would fit those criteria? Plz Help
  16. 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 ! 🙂
  17. 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?
  18. Hey everyone, I'm in my first year of DP and I kindly request your advice. My school has set the deadline for our extended essays by the end of summer and hence, I have to come up with a research topic. I'm planning to go into IT after I graduate(hopefully) and I would like to use ITGS as my topic idea for the Extended Essay. However, I have not opted to take ITGS and I am concerned whether I can do an extended essay on it and still get an 'A'. I also take economics SL and I'm very interested in it as well. I was wondering if I can't do the essay on ITGS, could I link both subjects somehow? Thanks, guys.
  19. Hi IBSurvival Forum! As I am approaching my analysis portion of my research-based extended essay, I would be delighted to get some feeback on analysis I have planned and subsequent conclusion. Before I go into the main point of this post, my stubborn foolishness led me to stick to a Bio EE, and I would just like to say it is immensely difficult to write a biology extended essay that meets the IB requirement to a high standard. My supervisor happened to be the EE coordinator as well as my biology teacher and the essays she had supervised previously were all research-based essays. Out of the 13 she supervised, 5 got As and 4 got Bs. Hence, in her experiences, if a student had an above average aptitude in the biological sciences and were genuinely interested in the topic they were writing about, a research-based essay can succeed contrary to the popular belief. So my current topic is on the gene regulation in HIV proviral latencies, in specifics the epigenetic control of HIV genes. I am planning to compare two different epigenetic mechanisms (histone modification and DNA methylation) that have been hypothesized and shown to happen by different virologists and researchers, and, evaluate the effectiveness of each in gene silencing and activation using content from the Biology curriculum + additional knowledge. Finally, I would relate this back to HIV and whether one is indeed more effective than the other in the context of HIV latencies. Could I get any general feedback on this idea? Thank you in advance for any replies. ^.^ P.S. If you feel this is too brief, I would gladly PM or email the rest of what I have planned out.
  20. 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.
  21. So for my E.E I am doing it on promotional strategies of BTS, which is a boy band. My research question is "How has the use of social media influenced the promotional strategies of BTS?" Is this a weak research question?

    Physics EE

    For my physics EE I decided to look at gravity and stability(my topic) and "how does the loading of a truck affects the shift of the central gravity and how that shift affects the tipping point of a truck if its in a stationary position?"(research question) . For my experiment I've used blocks of different masses that I placed on a aluminium platform using different variation. Where aluminium platform is like a truck platform and the blocks that I used act like loading. So basically I placed them in different ways and looked at the which angle each object will tip over. In my essay I will show how does the central gravity shifts and how it actually affects the tipping point. Furthermore, I want to convert the masses that I used into real life masses, to show that if the mass goes over the limit mass then its becomes dangerous. I am also connecting it to many real-life situations from Africa, where many trucks are overloaded and very often they tip over on the road. I will also explain how can suspension and speed decrease or increase the tipping point. Could someone give me any ides how I could improve my ideas or even my topic or research question, so my essay is not that broad. Thanks

I have found a few studies about it and I really like the topic, I just don't know how "psychology" it actually is. I also want to make sure that this is an okay thing to talk about in an essay. If anyone else has any ideas please let me know. Thanks!
