I am wondering how the IA's will affect the final IB grade. Let's say I have an accumulated 4 on my Econ IA. However, I get a 5 on my External Assessments (all 3)! What will be my Final grade? Will it be a 5 or a 4? I know the IA is 20% and the external Assesment is 80%. I was told that whatever I get on my External Assesment, will be final grade. The IA helps if the candidate is at the very end of a boundary. I have been getting different pieces of information. I am not sure how the IA works. Everyone keeps saying its "Only 20%", and the External Assessments are far more important. Can someone please help me!!!!
I've been reading around here for the past few days and the general opinion tends to be that this years Paper 1 was much easier compared to previous years whilst the Paper 2 was ridiculously difficult. A lot of people seem to be stressed/worried regarding their grade for this course, and i'm no different. With the amount of studying I did I was aiming for a 7. However, after completing Paper 2, I am now concerned regarding my chances of achieving a 6. I was wondering what people think the grade boundaries will be for this session? In my opinion, they should be lower than previous years considering the difficulty of the second paper. After estimating my marks, I expect to get 75/90 in paper 1, 52/90 in paper 2 (completely blanked out on this unfortunately, my confidence was drained around half way through the paper as I was struggling quite badly) along with a 25/40 in my IA's. Do you think this is enough to receive a 6? I don't tend to dwell on marks to much but considering I was getting 7's in tests throughout the course I am quite worried regarding my final mark for this particular subject
