  1. Hello, Is it possible to switch HL subjects during the first semester of the second year (IB2)? Right now I'm currently doing Bio at HL and I want to drop it and do geography instead. I realized I don't need biology for the program I'm plan on doing at Uni and geography would aid me. I'm flunking Bio so bad, I don't understand it and no matter how hard I try I still get low marks. I know it would have been better for me to switch during the first semester of IB1 but I honestly thought I could make it in bio but it's not going well. I have a good background in geography, and I don't mind meeting the teacher outside of school hours to work. If I continue with bio I'm probably just going to fail the diploma. See the thing is I didn't understand the concepts of bio and I had no experience in it and my school let me do it at HL, I had no guidance on choosing my subjects. If i'm not allowed to switch I might just end up dropping the diploma then.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Hi! I'm a second year IB student and my TOK presentation is in barely a month. I did already do my practice run and my teachers liked it but right now, they're not very encouraging and helpful and my teacher is too scary to try ask questions to ANYWAY! So my TOK presentation topic is "What role do logic and emotions play in the creation of attraction to others?" and it's a pretty cool topic and I have a lot to say but I've got an issue. All I am saying for my first AOK (Psychology) is from one site only, it has really good points and examples and I paraphrased everything but the ideas are basically the same. What should I do? Should I research for other examples? Do I need more than a certain amount of sites? Will I be penalised for plagiarism if I only use that site's ideas? I probably will... PLEASE HELP ME!!
  5. I'm in the middle of planning for my TOK presentation How is this as a potential Question: To what extent is knowledge gained through the natural sciences infallible The real life situation from which this was derived is the series of Korean air crashes in the late 90's specifically the crash in Guam. I was thinking that because of factors such as a lack of sleep in the pilots, the fact that the copilot and pilot were new to working with each other, and that autopilot had been switched off (all considered human errors, relating to the human sciences), it didn't matter how solid the theory behind flying planes is (natural science and knowledge gained through it), the fact that there were human errors made the crashes happen. I'm wondering whether a) this is a good question and b) if an onlooker can understand the question without knowing my background research, and c) what assumptions would I make while making the presentation. Thanks!
  6. Could you guys check whether this topic would be good enough for my maths IA? Applying probability and statistics to determine the possibility of World War III, the participating countries, and the winning and losing nations:
  7. Hello! So recently Hurricane Irma hit, and school has been canceled for over a week. I really need data to start my rough draft for my math studies IA, and I would be eternally grateful if you guys would help! Here is the link, and thank you for everything. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1kb-aDTj8yZnMb875jNNjXextlC4wBqCOjA7Jz_btDLs/edit
  8. 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.
  9. I had two ideas in mind for my Math HL IA 1) I was thinking about doing it on non Euclidian geometry. I couldn't find a specific topic but I was thinking about proving that the Earth is round using spherical geometry but I am not exactly sure how to do it. 2) I was thinking about the Mandelbrot set. Maybe showing how it was bound by 2, but that would be repeating something that has already been discovered and proved many times before. If you have any suggestions on how I might find a specific topic it would really be helpful.
  10. Okay so I have to turn in a group 4 research question by Friday this week and my group members haven't been helping me at all. Right now we have an idea going with how sustainable biodegradable, paper and plastic materials are compared to each other. Basically just testing how long it takes each one to decompose and see which one goes faster. But that's not a 5x5 design and we only have 2 months so we can't really use that. Please help me out. I cannot carry this project on my own and I'm swamped with other things I have to do. So please drop some research questions. We have a really broad topic of community, so anything that can help improve the community or that can be tested within a typical community. That's what I'm working with, please drop any ideas.
  11. Hey, in case you haven't heard Texas got hit hard with Huricane Harvey. If you live in Texas and your school is cancelled, I heard you might not be back for up to 4 months and maybe more depending on the damages. There are IB schools all over in other states and I attend one of the top IB schools in Georgia. It's called Douglas County High School (Douglasville, Ga) and if you want to continue your studies so you don't get behind please come out. Our teachers are encouraging us to get you guys to come so you can finish out IB, especially if you're a senior. I wish you all the best of luck and I hope your families are safe.
  12. Hey, So last year our school was unable to provide us with a Math SL teacher considering only three students took it. We were registered on Pamoja, which turned into a giant mess. Long story short, we wasted a whole year. This year we were finally provided with a teacher and I personally sought out a tutor. Do you think it's possible to finish two years worth of Math SL content before the exams in May? Any tips or advice I should keep in mind? Our math teacher suggested not worrying about the content we should have learnt last year and shouldn't try to do multiple topics at the same time, even in our own time. Is that good advice? Thanks in advance!
  13. So this is my first time to do this, like conducting my own research and I am still not sure of this critical thinking side of the IB program because previously I did the IGCSE which based more on like writing and following instruction. Right now my first drafts are almost due and I desperately need an IA topic. If this helps, I am interested in taking veterinary science in University so! PLEASE HELP! Any help is really helpful right now!!
  14. So, I started making my TKPPD and TOK presentation a few weeks ago. My original KQ was "To what extent is it right to exploit the knowledge of human science?" About a week ago, I was told that using right(which relates to ethics) is not a good idea as ethics is very questionable, it is more of an opinion rather than a second order question. My TOK presentation focuses on magic, in this KQ it was hypnosis. I have given a lot of other KQs but it wasn't good enough. I need input on what my KQ can be. Please help, this is urgent. I'm in my second year of IB and everything is piling up, I am getting more and more overwhelmed. I am supposed to finalize everything by tomorrow Your feedback would highly be appreciated, Thanks in advance guys
  15. Hello... So I am about to finish my MYP year and I will be starting my Ib diploma next term. The subjects choice I have made are HL subjects: English A: lang and lit, Physics and business SL subjects: French ab initio, Math and chemistry I am really worried about english because in my MYP year, I have got mostly a 5. Do you think I should do SL instead of HL? What do you think about my IB subjects? (mainly in term of difficulty)
  16. My friend and i are doing our IOP and we are finding it hard to make it creative, or how to intrigue the audience we are looking for more unique was rather than jokes, powerpoints/prezis, etc
  17. I'm having my IOP's in German soon. We looked at the Books Jakob der Lügner, Homo Faber and Das Parfüm. We also watched the films. Generally speaking does any of you have any recommendation what to do if we have to analyze and compare two works? What specific aspect would you look at?
  18. Hello fella ib students! I am very new to this, but I desperately need help to any of you who are willing to I am doing my EE on english lit, and my topic is: "an examination of Emily Dickinson's treatment of nature on a selection of her poetry." My supervisor suggested me to choose this topic. Now, my research question, I believe, can still be refined, and so far what I got is "How does Emily Dickinson’s treatment of nature in [four to six] of her poems help to convey her questions in life and her psychological state of mind?" What do you think? I am a little bit concerned that I will focus too much on her life/biography, and from what I've read in the IB guide it says that “Essays that interpret literary works in terms of the writer’s life tend to produce reductive readings based on second-hand information. Such essays receive low marks and the IB therefore advises students to avoid biographical topics.” My supervisor said that I dont have to worry too much since I can just focus on how the poems convey the meaning of life in general than oppose to what the poet thinks. Nonetheless, I am still in my second semester of year 11, and I think I can still develop my RQ. I have other ideas which still have Dickinson's nature poems as a focus: - Comparative study on her nature poems with other poets. - Focus on the two ways she approach or represent nature in her poems. I would really appreciate anyone's help tbh!! Give me your opinions
  19. Which subject according to the overall experience is better? Both of business SL and ess fit my other choice of subjects (engineering is my track btw) I just need to hear other people's opinions about each. When it comes to the IAs, content, etc. so that I'll be aware of all of the aspects before finalizing any decision. YOUR REPLY WOULD BE APPRECIATED!
  20. Hello all, I take chemistry HL and I need a topic for my chemistry IA new syllabus. I have suggested two ideas for my supervisor but he said they are not good. He said that the expire meant should deal with a broad topic and have qualitative data( the one with calculations) he emphasized on the point of the experiment having calculations. And he said it should relate in someway to daily life, it's good to do about food, water , cosmetics, detergins.... Any suggestions for topics???? The two topics he refused and said we're not good are: 1. The effect of temperature on the acidity of lemons 2. Something dealing with zinc half life
  21. This is my first post on the forums, so I'm not too familiar with how its supposed to work, and if anyone will see this at all, but I was wondering what math skills I should focus on/study if I were to go into IB next year (im in grade eight). I'm thinking about preparing a bit in advance, and our school does have a summer school for preparation but my friend is in grade nine right now, and really struggling even after having taken the summer course (and she's a pretty good student too). If anyone could give me any math tips and study material, or just studying tips in general for next year, that would be great.
  22. Hello! So I'm doing my EE in gender equality in Baha'i and I am having a really hard time with the question and getting starting on my essay. Does this sound like it would make a good EE topic? Any help would be amazing! To what extent have teachings of gender equality in Baha'i led to social advancements for women of faith?
  23. Hi! Having completed Math SL and scored a 7 on the exams, would math HL be an okay transition in terms of difficulty/understanding concepts?
  24. Hello everyone, When writing about a study found on the internet, is it fine if it is pretty similar to what i wrote or i have to completely change it into my own words. Please answer if you know! Thank you
  25. For film HL, the film my group is planning to do has a possibility of exceeding 7 minutes. We're not really sure as to what the consequences of exceeding are, so does someone have an idea? My teacher is guessing that the film won't be assessed if it exceeds 7 minutes.
