  1. Hello, Do you think that for Paper 3 of History it is enough to work in two topics (being able to choose 3 questions of 4)? Or it's really risk? Because the other option is starting a new topic. Should I work really hard on these 2 I already know, or start another one? i have the exam in 4 weeks. What do you think? Thank youu!
  2. Hey! Does someone have any notes on the history books IB called "Authoritarian States" and "Cold War" Thank you
  3. I have two questions for which I can't decide which one is the best one for my history IA, which one do you think is better or how can I make one better for my IA? What policies did Hitler enact in order to get total control over Germany? What effect did Nazi Germany have on public and civilian life?
  4. I feel so conflicted right now because I don't know what to choose for my EE and I wanted to finalize my topic over a week ago! PLEASE HELP ! I wanted to do chemistry since it is something I plan to major in, so I came up with the question "To what extent does silverskin black garlic provide a reliable source of antioxidants ?" I thought it was a good topic, but the question is more biology, and unfortunately, I am not taking biology. I asked my chemistry teacher for some advice and he said that there was a reason no year 2s did chemistry as their subject. He said it would be too much work for an experiment since there would be a lot of error and it would be hard to write 4000 words on a topic that you do not know very well about. A lot of year 2 students agreed with him and recommended that I do english or history since it would be wayy easier. I really wanted to do this topic since I know I would be way more interested in it but now I feel like it would be harder than I imagine. Another teacher said chemistry is doable but difficult; however if done well it can look very good. I don't know exactly what do to for english or history. For history I am interested in Lenin, Mussolini, Hitler, and Mao But I am lost in what I should do. Please help me. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hey all, I've been having a lot of trouble writing the 45 minute essays that are assigned in HL History (year 1). Does anyone have any tips or strategies, or possibly well written exemplars, that I could use to improve my style of writing? I think I end up giving too much narrative and not giving as strong of an argument as I should be, but any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  6. So, right now I have an assignment in history where I have to write about Friedrich W. Foersters "Europe and The German Question", and now I came to a part where it says "Limitation of content" and idk what I have to write there. I tried to find some answers, for it. But there's nothing.
  7. Hi all, I just wanted to know how difficult it's going to be for me to study and succeed in IB. I'm currently studying in grade 10 and I'll most probably start studying according to IB's curriculum next year. I'm currently studying the Holt McDougal Modern Chemistry, English Literature/writing, Biology, and Phyiscs. The McGraw Hill Algebra 2 on top of social studies, Farsi literature/writing and Arabic. I find all of the subjects I'm studying relatively easy (except Farsi. Even though it's my mother language), and I aced all of my finals last term. But I'm kinda stressed to be studying IB as I have no idea about the difficulty level. The hl subjects that I'm gonna pick are biology, chemistry, Farsi and English (I have no idea whether it's gonna be A or B; it's mandatory to study Farsi and English hl at my school) I want to study medicine and I looked at dozens of university admission requirements for the said course; most of the universities I'm interested in require a minimum of 6 in bio hl and chem hl on top of an overall score of 38/45. As I said, I just want to know how much energy I'll need to exert on my studies and how difficult it'll be to meet the mentioned requirements. Your insight would be appreciated! Edit: Do I need to study physics as wrll to get into medicine? I'm already picking Math sl so not sure how that'll work.
  8. Hello, I need some help trying to think of some Japanese history that relates to World War 1, World War 2, or The Cold War. I was thinking of writing about the internment of the Japanese but I think that it would be too much on the psychological/moral aspect rather than history, (My question was "To what extent was the Japanese internment a violation of human rights?") If you have any ideas on what would interest me, let me know. Thank you so, so much!
  9. Hi, I'm starting to write my extended essay and internal assessment for history. My chosen subject for my extended essay is history. I've decided on two questions, but I'm not sure if I should switch them. Also, I didn't really like my extended essay question because I believe that the argument would be unclear and un-focused, could anyone please guide me in the right direction. Thank you. Extended Essay To what extent did McCarthyism alter the political climate of the United States during the Second Red Scare in the 1950s? Internal Assessment Evaluate the extent to which the United States played a role in the 1973 Chilean Coup d’etat over Salvador Allende. Any advice would be helpful!!
  10. Hi people! I am constantly getting a 12 on my Paper 2 practices, but am failing to reach that 7. I think the reason for this is my structure, and how it needs to be improved so I can write more coherently and tighter (if that makes sense). I was wondering how to structure my introduction and body paragraphs. For my introduction, I have been taught to primarily define the key concepts, give context, and then offer my thesis. The problem I have is that my definitions become to formulaic and choppy. I don't get a nice flow to it. I also don't know precisely what I need to define. If anyone have any pointers, I would to hear some on how I can tighten up my introduction. For my body paragraphs, I am very confused on how to organize my evidences and evaluations; and how many I should include. Should I state Evidence #1, and evaluate it? Then after that state Evidence #2, and evaluate it? And finally do the same for the third? The problem I have with this is to I fail to come up with a flow and being able to link all of these in a fluid format. This is my main problem; how to organize my evidences in my body paragraphs. Thank you for helping me or the time you took to read this. Kind Regards, a fellow IB Survivalist.
  11. I need some urgent guidance regarding my IB subject choices for next year!!! This is what I've entered; English Lit A HL Economics HL History HL Maths SL Environmental systems and societies SL Mandarin ab initio SL However, I still have the opportunity to make changes so I thought I'd ask for some thoughts on them before I finalise. First of all - do they seem optimal for law at Russel Group/Ivy Leauge unis? English Lit, Economics, Maths and Mandarin are more or less definite so I am left with two concerns; I am considering swapping out History HL to Global Politics HL. Mainly because Global Politics appeared very interesting but also as I reckon History will be much harder to get a good score in. I came to UK boarding school this year which is year 11/5th form so I am doing an accelerated GCSE course - meaning my subject choices for GCSE were limited and I couldn't do the full GCSE for History (I have history lessons for experience but am not sitting exams). On the other hand, though, I know History is well respected by unis and sure would benefit me if I'll study law. Help!!! History HL or Global Politics HL? Second concern - At first I didn't doubt choosing ESS for a second because I just wanted to get rid of the sciences but I have heard a lot recently, even from the teacher of ESS, that it is a soft subject. I got A*s in all my triple science mocks and am predicted A*s as well - so it is not that I would struggle with for example Biology; I just chose ESS purely because I don't find bio/chem/physics interesting. Is it really such a "soft subject" and does it even matter if I want to do law/international relations etc. at uni? if so should I consider biology instead?

  14. My topic is: To what extent was humanitarian intervention used to justify imperialist ambitions by the united states during the Spanish-American War? What part of it would I have to tweak? Is it too broad, or too narrow? I have a lot of research done on the Spanish-American War. I'm afriad that what I sit down and write it my question wil bring me issues or my research and sources will not help me at all. I'm just really nervous that there is still some tweaking to be done with my question, but I don't know what part of it to tweak. Any ideas?
  15. Hello guys, I am currently in the EE RQ selection phase and I am still on the fence as to whether I should attempt to do a history EE. I was thinking about an EE RQ which talks about German's failed blitzkrieg against the Soviet Union. My biggest concern is that I am a History SL student and most people warned me to do an EE centered around a HL subject. This leads to my question: is it advisable to do a History EE since I am not a HL student? It would also be great if students (who attempted a History EE) could share their history EE experiences with all of us. I am quite curious and eager to know more about the entire trajectory of your history EE experience. Thanks in advance!
  16. Hello everyone! In one week I need to give my professor my EE topic, I will do it in History and I have a few ideas but I don't know how to properly formulate a question or even how to get primary sources from that topics. I really need some help. 1. Berlin Wall: How did the wall divide both sides culturally? 2. Which countries participating in the WW2 advanced more in medicine thanks to the human experiments? 3. To what extent did the witch haunt affect women nowadays? Thank you so much.
  17. Would it be okay to write my history EE on comic books? like, I want to compare the use of comic books as propaganda in different wars. how could I make a research question out of this?
  18. history

    So we are just starting our extended essays in school, and im unsure if my topic is too broad, and how much narrower should i go? My topic is How did warfare and militarism shape the Roman Empire?
  19. I have the option to take an IB elective for the diploma, and IB geo SL was one of them. I really like geography, but I've heard that the class is all about global sustainability and helping the environment, is that true? Because if it is, I'm not really sure if I want to take it. My other options are IB anthropology, music, or psychology (none of those classes appeal to me).
  20. Hello, I am in the process of deciding a topic for my extended essay. The teacher that I want as a mentor has many students already and is only willing to be my mentor if I can come up with a History topic that is non-violent (not war related i guess). I've been thinking about an essay on an ancient/historical civilization but I don't think that it will be a good idea since there may not be much documentation or secondary sources on it. Any ideas for a history topic that is not related to a historical war?
  21. Hi everyone, My class is beginning to write the first section of our history IAs and my teacher said that it will be okay to revise our questions. I have to write this first section in 2 days, but I am having doubts whether or not my research question is appropriate or not. Here is my question: "Was it inevitable for the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings to occur?" I feel like the question is not specific enough and based on my research, there are so many theories that my IA could end up all over the place. I was thinking about changing it but with a topic similar to my original one, like this: "To what extent did the Soviet Union's declaration of war against Japan during World War II affect their surrender in 1945?" Could I still use my first question or should I try to revise it? If so, what are some ideas for topics? Thank you so much!
  22. Hey guys, Could someone pls give me feedback on the courses I have chosen for the DP programme. I want to go into the med field. My school doesn't offer both sci at HL. Without further ado this is what I'm thinking of taking: Hl Chem, Sl Bio, Sl French(mandatory), Hl Lang & Lit (mandatory), Sl Math, Hl History
  23. Hey, i was wondering how you can include, in paper 1 and 2, the historiography and discussion of historians' points of views: write the arguments of the essay and then prior to the conclusion do a separate topic discussing the historiography, or should I include historiography for each argument I use (e.g Imperialism argument and thus include the view of an historian which thinks it was a fundamental cause for the outbreak of WWI - do this for every argument). So far, I have been doing the first, that is, writing all arguments and in the end do a separate discussion (more less 8/10 lines), so that I can then conclude the essay. What do you think it should be done/how do you do it?
  24. Hi all, I'm looking for something to read once I finish with Taylor's book(s). Specifically, I'm looking for historians who wrote about the Unification of Italy (since that's one of my prescribed topics, and I would like to have a historian's viewpoint for Italy as well as Germany), but if you have any other recommendations that would be great too. Also, do you guys know any good historians for Imperial Russia (the text topic we're going to cover)? Thanks in advance, and remember- Bismarck ALWAYS has a plan!
  25. Hey guys! I’m currently in grade 10 about to apply for IB.
