  1. Hey! My biology IA is predicted at a high 4 low 5, I am trying to get a 6. However, If I keep a 5, will I still be able to get a 6 overall if I do well in my exams? And how much is the IA weighted in contrast to the exams?
  2. Hi there! I am in G12, and now an applicant mainly targeting top 20s for chemistry+graphic/industrial design dual degree or design major (which means I am choosing chemistry as a second major at second year of college) My stats are okey: 720R, 780M, 110 TOEFL, 760 chem and 740 math (gonna retake probably) However, I have a 3.7~3.8 cumulative UW GPA with a 34 out of 42 at last semester in IB. (The average of two semesters is 36) Scores are really not my forte. I do have good ECs and a strong art/design portfolio (my teacher said that my portfolio has the level of work of an MFA student) My project and my portfolio website: https://www.behance.net/aquilinahu5ef0 (portfolio) https://www.periodicgraphicsofelements.com/ (my Periodic Table project) ECs: Founder of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) Educational program Alchemy. around 900+ followers. Sub-program being published on university of Waterloo’s magazine and one of the most prestigious universities in Pakistan. Featured by American Chemical Society (long term), Russian Embassy in America, Chinese Academy of Sciences and etc. Award given by Uni. of Waterloo. Interviewed Nature Chemistry editor and the Author of the book series ‘The Elements: A Visual Exploration’. Co-published 1 time with my mentor's program, who is an (some kind of) associate professor at the University of Science and Technology of China (one of the outstanding universities here). He focuses on scientific communication through digital media. Chem blog with a post recommended by the Royal Society of Chemistry at Britain. President of school science club for 2 years. 6 week Pre-college at Rhode Island of Design (America's best university). Obtained very good recommendation letter. Scientific artist of one of the peer-reviewed teenage scientific journal (sponsored by the London International Youth Science Forum, had collaborations with the Royal Society in Britain and Dyson). We currently have at least 6700+ followers. Also helped arrange the conference at Cambridge uni. Astronomy internship at The National Astronomical Observatory of Chinese Academy of Sciences (most prestigious scientific research centre at China) Regional piano gold award gained at G9 Consistent member of school’s student government and graphic design group Member of school’s philosophy club Graphic designer for a film festival around international schools nation-wide and world-wide (in collaboration with Italian Education Ministry, I think...) As for recommendation letters and essays, I would say they would be really good. Wrote about my interdisciplinary approach towards thinking and visual science communication. I am really not a top academic student, and tbh I blame myself for that. Will the poor GPA hurt me? Should I drop out of the program and take AP exams instead?
  3. Just incase anybody wanted to know the average grades/scores that students internationally receive in IB, I've found a PDF with statistics from IBO - this is the most recent PDF I could find and the statistics have been taken from the May 2016 session. I've listed the page numbers of some information depending on what you may want to check - Page 9: Extended Essay statistics Page 10: TOK statistics Page 16: Statistics on number of points awarded to candidates Page 17 to Page 22: All subject grade distributions (including mean grade + % of candidates receiving grades) PDF Download: dp-statistical-bulletin-may-2016-en.pdf Link: http://www.ibo.org/contentassets/bc850970f4e54b87828f83c7976a4db6/dp-statistical-bulletin-may-2016-en.pdf
  4. Hey guys, So I have received feedback on my final IA grade, however my teacher says that they need to review it with other teachers... Is there a possibility it could go up? because I believe my teacher is a harsh marker and that it should be at least 1 point higher.. Thank you
  5. Hey all, I just got my IOP grade for English A SL. I got 22/30 a grade 6. I was told that the grade does not matter at this point, only the points since they are added to the IOC points next year to get a grade. I also understand that the IOP is 15% of the grade and the IOP together with the IOC is 30% (right?). Anyway I knew it would be hard to hit a 7 but I am not really satisfied with what I got, I was expecting more. Is a 7 still within reach for my final grade? Need some motivation, I feel like this is a bad grade. I haven't had literature before the IB and it took me up until now to get a feel for what a thesis means and some of the literary devices. I am a science student but don't want my IB score to fall because of one subject. What would be a good approach to ensure a high final grade in English. I mean in Math and Physics I would generally just practise and solve exercises but I am not sure about English. p.s. I don't suppose it is possible to redo the IOP? Thanks!
  6. Hey I was just interested in how can your grades change from first to last term of first year? What's the highest that you can change? For example, is it possible to have a 7 in the end if you had 5 in the first term?
  7. So I've got the general grades of each subject, but I was wondering how I did in each of the individual aspects of the subject (for example the IA of Biology, or the Paper 1 of Biology). Do we get the results of each individual work or do we just make do with the general grade?
  8. If one gets 7's on the IA's and 5 on the External exams --> what will the final score be?
  9. Hello, Does anyone know what the grade boundaries for the new TOK course are? Our presentation and essay are both out of 10 and have a 30-70 weighting respectively. Is the TOK and EE matrix the same as that for previous years where an AA or AB is needed for 3 bonus points? Thanks!
  10. Hi, I want to apply to Singapore and my grades are as follows: IB probably 37-39, SAT 2140 combined and 2070 single with 710 reading, 760 maths and 670 writing. I have a TOEFL of 105. I would say my GPA is good but I don't think any would understand it as it is a weird Turkish grading with a twist of my school as well. So I was wondering are my grades competitive enough for NTU or NUS WITHOUT a scholarship. Thanks
  11. Hey guys! Since my school's organization is extremely terrible and they've hired a bunch of non- IB qualified teachers who are poorly familiar with the curriculum and the criteria I was wondering if there s a possibility to access the criteria online somewhere? Correct me if I am wrong but I believe that there is one criteria sheet that covers all the 6 subjects and I've received a few of them last year (which I've obviously lost), and since my school is to unorganized to provide us with them I was wondering if you guys could help me out Thanks

  13. Hi, I noticed that the Language A1: Literature SL exam starts in few days and I want you just ask a question. Theoreticaly, if I become a grade 1 in Paper 2, but i have enough points overall to pass the whole subject, will I recieve the diploma?
  14. I got a 25 out of 30 on my IOP... is that good? On the rubric my teacher gave me there wasn't a conversion score so I don't know how a 25 fits in. I got a 9/8/8. Thank you!
  15. Hi! After my IB, I want to apply for medicine in UPCM (Université Pierre et Marie Currie). The problem is that I don't know what the requirements are. (In terms of grades) Can somebody tell me, what the average points on the IB scale are. I just can't find it on the website!
  16. Hi! I don't know, if my thread appears more than once? I make a couple of ones, but they don't show up?! Anyway, after my IB, I want to apply for the France Medical university (UPCM) - Université Pierre et Marie Currie - in Paris. Yeah, I want to know what the required grades are for the university? I can't seem to find it, anywhere on the webpage, so I hoped that you would find it better than me, or just happened to know it! Thanks in advance.
  17. Hi guys, Last time I did an FOA, I did it on part 2, and the format of the FOA was very different from what I am trying to do now. It had bullet points on each slide, and I made sure I used a lot of vocabulary I learned in class. I got a good score on it. However, I was skimming through YouTube and found an unique FOA. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzRsfO6eeIw&index=10&list=UUikzrEhZS-9ucVleDrwGpnQ It is comprised of only photos, and it is not very academic. IBSurvival users, what grade (out of 7) would you give this FOA? Do you think its a good idea to do a summative FOA in this format (without using the recording, I will actually present)?

  19. Hey, I came across this document with all the grade boundaries for each paper and assignment. Hope this helps! 201405_Grade_Boundaries.pdf
  20. Hi, i have just gotten my results and found that i'm 1 mark off a 6 in English HL, and 2 marks off a 5 in Bio HL. The breakdown of my English Marks are: Oral IA moderated mark: 17 (Grade 4) Paper 1 moderated mark: 13 (Grade 5) Paper 2 moderated mark: 22 (Grade 7) Written Task moderated mark: 22 (Grade 4) The breakdown of my Bio Marks are: Paper 1 moderated mark: 23 (Grade 3) Paper 2 moderated mark: 24 (Grade 5) Paper 3 moderated mark: 40 (Grade 5) Practical Work moderated mark: 23 (Grade 4) Are these marks worth a remark?? Thank youuu
  21. So, I got my Biology IA grade yesterday, and it was extremely unfair! Normally, on my paper 1, 2 and three, it get a 6 or 7, and that is what i predict I also got at the exam. But then I got my IA back, and it was like 22/48!!! I know it is worth more, because I helped some friends with theirs, and they got in the 30's. Some where made in groups, and they were in the 30's as well. My teacher graded my IA's before I handed them in, and they all got 6s and 7s. This is so weird! Is there anything I could do? I hope it is a mistake, but he does not answer my emails! The is very unorganised, and lost all IA's in February, and I sent him them all. What would you do? And yes, I followed the markscheme and all.
  22. Hi! I'm doing HL history, and I'm just wondering what is required in order to pass? Do I need to have 4 or more on all papers (and IA), or is it enough to have a 4 all together? Could I for example have 6 on IA, 5 on paper 1, 4 on paper 2 and 3 on paper 3, and still pass?
  23. Hey, So we did our IOPs for English early on in our first year of IB (not really sure why, we were still clueless ib-lets then) and despite consistently getting 6s and 7s throughout the year I got a 5 for my IOP, which i was pretty disappointed with.I was just wondering, would there be any chance of me getting a 7 for my final grade? I'd love to get at least one 7 in IB and seeing as I've been pretty close in the last I'd love to get one for English. My teacher told me I'd be very happy with my IOC and world lit scores so I'm assuming I would have gotten 6s or 7s for those, and I do pretty well with essay writing and commentaries so I'm feeling pretty confident for the exam. This is mainly just a pride and peace of mind thing. If anyone can reassure me I'd appreciate it!
  24. Hello I am retaking biology HL because I got a 4 in it, and I am not happy with that at all. What I wonder is, what IF, I get a 3 now in November, will that be my new grade or will still the "highest" = 4 counts? If the highest counts, does this apply for all courses? Take care
  25. Going into the IB next year, I am curious about how it is that the scoring system works. My thoughts are "Why should I do HL Mathematics, if I am likely to get a poor score in it, if I can simply do SL and get a 7?" Is there a cut off for SL, where say, an individual can only get a maximum of 5 for example? I do understand that it is a requirement to study at least 3 classes at a HL, causing the scoring to even out amongst students if that is the case. Even so, if someone could clear this up and provide me and others with some information, that would be fantastic.
