  1. I'm doing my IA on how changes in mass alter the rate at which a pendulum decelerates because of inertia and i have my data and stuff i just realized that i don't know this topic too well and its too late to change. also i'm not sure what exactly this should look like format wise. please help.
  2. 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!
  3. So I am currently starting the history extended essay and I am wondering what type of format that I should use?? I was thinking of using APA, but I was wondering what others are using for their history extended essays?
  4. Hello fellow IB world, I am always being told by teachers that I need to format my essays in a particular way but they say check the criteria. I am currently freshman year and I understand that I am not taking exams yet but I need to fix this problem. For example, currently I am writing an Research paper but I am unsure if my research question is good, as well as if my formatting of the essay is reasonable. For those with past experiences or know how essays should be formatted whether it be any essay, please help me! Thank you!
  5. I just have a few questions regarding IB expectations with regards to lab reports. What sourcing style does the IB prefer / require for lab reports? (Ex: Harvard, AP). If non, which is the most popular within the scientific community? Is there a word limit or page limit for the lab report? If so, is the appendix included within the word/page limit? If there exists a word limit, are footnotes included? What would be appropriate to place within the appendix of the lab report? Would pictures be appropriate? Is it required / recommended to take pictures? If so, should you be in the pictures? Additionally, where would be the most appropriate area to place these pictures within the lab report? What shouldn't be included in the appendix?
  6. Hi guys, I am an IB graduate and university student- I currently assist in formatting postgraduate and some undergraduate documents. So mainly honours year dissertations, a few masters students thesis, and multiple assignments. I generally charge by the hour and this is all quite simple, the send me the document I format, they pay, I send the new pretty document to them. However recently I was asked by a few IB students to help them but they are reluctant to hand over their draft EE to me to format. Now to be clear, I do not proofread, I just format (make it look professional, make it flow, make it look pretty). I have told them I could just do it for them in an hour or so, and they have nothing to worry about. However the are still quite shy. So instead they asked if they could be taught how to format their EE and bring in their friends, and then they can go off and do it themselves with occasional assistance from me. I am happy to do this, and know how I would deliver such a tutorial to a class of postgraduates so I can adjust this to meet my new audience. Is there anything you wish you knew about formatting your EE? OR if any university students are out there, from your experience with assessment formatting at university is there anything that would have saved you time or your sanity in your IB days? Cheers guys Sorry if I rambled on
  7. I am doing a World Studies EE, for which I did a lot of background research. In my works cited, should I include the books and websites I used for background information as well, or not?
  8. Hi, I plan to put an interview in my appendix. I'm just not sure how it should be formatted. Right now i have the question and the answers he gave me. Is there a format i should follow. And one last thing, as my interviewee's first language isn't english. Should I typed out exactly what he says or should I edit it? THANK YOU!
  9. I am doing an extended essay in Biology, specifically microbiology. I am testing the effect of comercailly available disinfectants on 3 different bacteria growth.

Thank you in advance!
