  1. I have around 3 weeks until I need to turn in my final draft of my extended essay, and I am just now starting. I know I shouldn't have procrastinated, but I did and now I have to deal with the consequences. Anyways, I know my topic will be on Dirty Realism (a style of writing that depicts the more mundane aspects of ordinary life), and I know that I will include writers like Richard Wright and Tobias Wolff in my essay. Now what I don't know is my research question. I have two in mind: 1. How does Richard Wright and Tobias Wolff use Dirty Realism in their works? 2. What is the role of Dirty Realism in Richard Wright and Tobias Wolff's works? Are either of these any good? And if not, what changes should I make to these questions?
  2. Hi, I'm planning to write my EE on the book "Spies" by Michael Frayn as a Category one. I was wondering if anyone could suggest any research questions for it or possibly suggest any books to compare it to. Books in the genre of growing up or coming of age would be appreciated. PLEASE, Thank you. :')
  3. Hi all, i am just finishing off my business and management EE, and I was wondering if it was appropriate to add images into the EE rather than going into depth explaining a physical description of products, so I have more words to analyse. Any advice welcome!
  4. Hi everyone, i am scary close to the deadline of my EE, and my supervisor says my EE is too descriptive. Does anyone have experience with a business and management EE that can help me with the structure and type of analysis required?
  5. I started writing my EE for the French B topic field. It is about French, written in English. Myself, my supervisor and even the IB coordinator do not know if this is acceptable, so a yes or no answer as to whether I can do this or not is appreciated from someone who has done this or knows more about restrictions around second language (language B) Extended Essays, thanks.
  6. Hey everyone, I submitted my EE, but then realized that I forgot one in-text citation. I have the citation in my works cited though. Can I change it somehow? If not, will I not receive my IB diploma for that? Thanks in advance.
  7. I am currently wirting my extended essay and am currently about half way through but realized that my question is too broad and not specific enough. the question is: To what extent did the Mexican muralist movement of the 1920s go on to influence the Social Realism movement of the 1930s? I don't know if I should focus more on the mexican muralist movement instead to be more specific, but don't know how to phrase a question for this topic. Could someone help me?????????????? Thank yhou!!! All help is appreciated!!
  8. I was thinking about doing my EE in HL maths and found some interesting topics like Rubik's cube permutations, golden ratio and beauty, what 'e' is, what 'π' is, and so on. One of my hobbies is coding (I also do HL computer science and know python), and on one website, someone said that you could involve coding in your EE. How exactly is this done? Has anyone done this before? Thanks, help is always appreciated!
  9. hello whoever is reading this ~ i’m in bit of a situation regarding my ee :(( for my ee i’m doing literature, and originally my topic was on dystopian novels. I was going to compare/contrast modern dystopian novels (like the hunger games, divergent, and maze runner) with old/classic dystopian works (like 1984). But as i was looking into it more i saw that 1984 (and the hunger games too for that matter) was overdone and cliche. And plus i tried reading 1984 over the summer and i didn’t finish it (im srry if im offending anyone! I just wasn’t feelin it). Anyways i decided to change my topic... last year i read One Hundred Years of Solitude and was introduced to magical realism. And two years ago (i think?) i read this YA novel called The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. Basically there’s a debate (if you can call it that? The book is still pretty new) over whether or not it fits into the magical realism category, so i thought i could analyze the elements of magical realism (idk if that makes any sense?). im not sure if it works as a topic or essay i can write about… i mean i have quotes/passages from the novel that point towards the lines of magical realism but there are also scenarios in the book/plot that don’t fit under the qualities of magical realism. (So those contrasts could be discussable maybe) Idk if i should follow through with this topic… wdyt any advice? feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading this lengthy stress-filled plea for help haha rip

  11. I've been thinking about what I want to do my extended essay on, and I've decided to do history. When I was looking for a topic, I found one that I find really interesting, which is the Wars of the Roses. I'm also a huge fan of A Song of Ice and Fire and A Game of Thrones, so I was wondering if I could intertwine those since the story for A Song of Ice and Fire is partially based on the Wars of the Roses. This is the question I came up with so far: How historically accurate is the depiction of the Wars of the Roses in the book series "A Song of Ice and Fire"? I'm worried that this is too broad because I'd like to talk about events that take place about over a century or that it will turn into just a narrative essay. I also don't know how to research for this very well. I really like the topic and would love to investigate it further, but I also want to pick a good topic that will get me a good grade. Is this doable? How should I approach this?
  12. For those who have done an EE in CS, how hard was it? And how do you collect data if you need to? Do you mainly use secondary data for the essay?
  13. Guys, what does IB say about sending my EE to someone through email? Is it gonna detect is as plagiarism? 2. What about word count websites, does it also detect my work and potential plagiarism? I put it in and I don't know if I didn't ruined everything... Please, it's an emergency!
  14. Currently, I am a bit confused. Looking over the extended essay May 2018 guide I see that the title of the essay cannot be stated in the form of a question (I take that to mean that it also cannot be the research question itself). However, in the mathematics section of the guide it says that "In mathematics, the title of the essay must be in the form of a question" (taken directly from the guide). Then, they proceed to give an example of an essay title when describing how you must explain the title early on, but the example they give is not in the form of a question (they give the example "Methods for approximating Π throughout history"). So, that begs the question, should the title of my maths EE be my research question itself, or just a regular title (a statement)?
  15. Is there anyone doing their Extended Essay on Language B. Im actually doing it on Russian which is my 2nd language. My topic is "What Russian names of geographic places are there in Mongolia?" What do you think about this topic, I will also go deep into history of Russian names in Mongolia, Is it ok?
  16. Hello all! My extended essay is due Sunday. I am doing one in maths, and I have spent quite a lot of time on formatting. However, I just reviewed the IB Extended Essay Guide for May 2018 exams, and apparently double spacing is required in the formatting. If I do this, then my entire formatting system will be messed up and it will look weird (I currently have it set to 1.5). Is this requirement wavered for math papers? How much will I be marked down if I keep it at 1.5 spacing even if making it double spaced would make the formatting look worse in general? Also, as a side-note, how does the electronic turn-in detect when the 4000 word limit has been reached? Does it know when there is a parenthetical citation and to exclude that? Thank you!
  17. Hi all! I'm planning to write my EE in physics but I don't really have a clear idea of how to work with the topic I'd like to cover. My teacher will only be taking 2 students & there are more than that planning to write theirs in physics so I'm kinda in competition with them to find stuff out ^^" SO if any of you guys have some suggestions go ahead & let me know! I'd like to work on something related to prosthetics seeing as I'd like to go into medical engineering sometime later on so any ideas in relation to that topic would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
  18. Hello everyone, I'm currently doing my psychology EE and I am investigating to what extend personality influences academic success. A counter argument that i am writing about is intelligence influencing academic success. Is it considered not answering the question? If anyone would like to give me advices on what i should include i would be glad. Thank u
  19. Hi! I'm not really sure about what the EE reflection is, how it's done and when to submit it. My school told me to create a "reflection space" to write about my thoughts during the EE writing process, but I don't really know if it is useful or just a waste of time. Will this be submitted? Or do I have to fill in a document summarizing the thoughts I wrote on the reflection space and send it with my EE to be graded? I'm so confused.
  20. Hi! For my extended essay, I wanted to write a non-experiment-based research paper on clostridium difficile colitis (a disease in the colon caused by bacteria). I want to talk about the etiology and epidemiology, method of transmission, and growth/reproduction of bacteria in my essay. Does anyone have a good idea on a research question I can use? I'm not sure on how to create a research question about a disease, especially since I am not conducting an experiment. Thank you:)
  21. Hey, I was curious about the plagiarism in IB. This is a hypothetical situation: Suppose, I download an EE online, which scored an A, and I rephrase the content (overall meaning remains the same). Turnitin will not give a very high percentage of plagiarism, due to the rephrasing, and suppose I get a plagiarism of 20%. But if you see my edited EE and the original one, you can clearly see I have copied off of it. Since IB examiners won't be checking each and every online EE side by side, is it possible that I could get away with this? And another situation, suppose I downloaded my IA again online and rephrased it. My IA is one of the selected samples which are sent to IB. Only this time I do get caught by IB. Since mine gets caught, will IB do anything to me? Will the marks of my classmates reduce? What are the outcomes of doing this?
  22. Hello, my fellow IB students. I'm seeking help for my English B Extended Essay, I already have my topic, RQ, but I'm struggling with the overall approach to it. The EE is going to be focused on how Trump effectively used communication (persuasive language, tweets, etc.) to succeed in his presidential campaign because I'm fascinated by this crazy phenomenon. I have plenty of info and ideas already, I'm just not sure how to appropriately put them all together and that is why I need help very bad. If anyone is willing to give me working tips suitable for my EE, I'd be more than happy. I don't want to give my exact topic, rq, etc. online, so comment here and I'll send you a private message.
  23. Hi! I am in grade 11 full IB I am still in the process of choosing a topic for my history extended essay. I have come up with several tentative topics, and a few research questions. 1. Chinese Cultural Revolution 2. Armenian Genocide - To what extent does the Armenian Genocide affect modern Turkish-Armenian relations? >> I feel like this one may be too obvious. Does 'Turkish-Armenian relations' need to be narrowed down? 3. French Revolution - To what extent did the French Revolution improve French society? >> I feel like this one may be too simple? 'Society' may change 4. Civil Rights Movement - To what extent is American racism and racial segregation during the American Civil Rights Movement connected to Western colonization of the world during the same time period? >> Although this one I think has the most potential/detail, I do think that it may need to be edited or reworded For all of the topics, I have not done very much preliminary research (I know I should). Which one do you think has the most potential? Thank you!!!!
  24. For my Extended Essay, I was wondering if this question would be okay? "How does [author's] utilization of psychological motifs in [novel 1] and [novel 2] help enhance the reader's understanding of [influential character's name]?
  25. So I did not realize that the subject your EE is under actually matters and affects how each EE is assessed. I just came up w my RQ and never actually looked into subject requirements. My research question is "To What Extent do the Different Interpretations of the Quran Reflect in the 9/11 Attacks by Al Queda?" and I originally had it under World Studies before I realized that it definitely is not a World studies EE. All the online guides I've looked at have been fairly vague so any help would be appreciated! In my essay I analyze Radical Islam and Islam so I believe it could fall under World Religions but I'm not too sure. Also, in my EE I explain the history of Radical Islam showing how it became such an extreme split off of Islam, and I analyze the motives behind 9/11. If it does fall under World Religions then do you have any suggestions for any interesting approaches I could include? I was going to analyze certain parts of the Quran which is used to 'justify' Radical Islam, but that seems a bit bland, any ideas on how to spice it up? Maybe interviews?
