  1. Are there any History books that focus solely on Mao's Hundred Flowers campaign? Most of the books that I have concentrate on a huge period of China's history, but I only really need to read about this one event.
  2. Hi everyone, I decided to take HL Chem, Math, and Physics and SL Econ, English LangLIt, and Mandarin B. I did get pretty good grades in 10th grade, but my parents are worried that I'm taking too many courses that have heavy workload. I have three 10-day cycles to change the subject - alternately I'm think of taking Chem SL and Econ HL If anyone has the same combo as I do, I would love to hear your experience and advice.
  3. Hello Can anyone tell me how big the gap between chem HL&SL and econ HL&SL are? I'm currently taking math, chem, physics HL & english langlit, mandarin B, econ SL. Would dropping chem from HL to SL and switching econ SL to HL reduce the workload? I already feel quite overwhelmed by the amount of work from math&physics HL
  4. My HL's are Math and Physics, and my SL's are mandarin and lang& lit Math and physics will be difficult but I'm hoping to pull out 6's, however should which should I take at HL Psych or Econ. I know they're both considered easier but which one would be the easiest with my other HL classes Side not I do find psych more interesting but I am also quite bad at writing essays Please let me know which at HL I should take and which at SL Thanks!!
  5. Hi there! I've been struggling quite a lot in finding a specific topic to write about for my history IA. I've narrowed it down to these topics: •Aztec empire (specifically focusing on what caused it's collapse, such as the Spaniard's military tactics for example) • Fidel Castro's involvement in women's rights • Cesar chavez tactics to gain recognition of the importance of farm workers • CIA's involvement in the Chilean coup d'etat (I've seen another person on the forum do the same topic. So I don't know how to change it up if I were to pick this topic) Essentially what I'm asking is which topic has the most potential to work for the IA? And how should I formulate the question?
  6. Going into jr year and class choices are due in a few weeks, please respond and thank you in advance to the ppl that do What sciences should I take and at what level if I wanna go into engineering or medical. Like what would be the best base for college? Also at what level should I take math? ^ 2 HL spots and 1 SL
  7. Hi, second year IB student here who takes psychology HL. I just recently got my draft back from my teacher, with a quite low score. Is there anyone here who knows what they are doing, who would be willing to read over my fixed version and tell me what they think? Please PM me if you can God do I hate the one draft policy...
  8. Hello! I am taking computer science HL. The only thing I am now worried about is learning all of those diagrams and shapes, symbols. Are they really common in the exams? Even if I memorize them, I feel like I will forget them in the exams... I have noticed that there are system flowcharts quite usually, but what about these symbols, or data flow diagrams and others? Do I really need to pay a lot of attention to them?
  9. Hey guys, I wanted to know if it is possible to take 5 HLs instead of the 4 I have been taking for the past school year. Keep in mind that mocks are in less than a month. The class I want to bring up to HL is Economics, as I think the Paper 3 will benefit me a lot as I'm a very mathematically-inclined student. So far, Paper 1s have really been giving me trouble and all my classmates say Paper 3s are much easier than Paper 1s. Thoughts? These are my classes currently: HL Math, HL Physics, HL Chem, HL Arabic B SL English LAL, Economics
  10. Hiiii. I’m starting my IB this year and I need some advise on choosing a Group 3 subject. I’m considering to take either Global Politics HL or Economics HL. Both seem quite interesting to me but I still can’t decide which one to pick. Would appreciate your help :) My chosen subjects are English Language and Literature HL French SL ESS SL Math Studies SL Visual Arts HL
  11. I’m a little conflicted about choosing which subjects to take as higher levels. My school forces us to take English and History HL, so I basically only get the option of one other HL. That will probably be Chem, but I’m also considering Math HL. Because of my school’s requirements I’ve been considering taking 4 HLs since I hesr that colleges don’t often look at SL classes. I’m a straight A student, but I struggle with time management a lot, and I realize the commitment I’d need to make. Not sure if I’m making any sense here, I’d just appreciate some advice on deciding, maybe some perspective from people taking/who have taken 4 HLs? Thanks!
  12. Hey everyone, this is a very generic question but how should you study for physics? My teacher really rushes through topics and I’m finding it hard to understand how to apply the theory. So far we’ve done topics 1-4 and I’ve found mechanics the hardest because we did not spend enough time on it, we also barely learnt the theory and went straight into past paper questions. Waves and thermal physics on the other hand I found quite straight forward. Is the best approach to first study the theory and take notes and then do questions? Or is there better methods Thanks
  13. My teacher told me the biology ia has to involve the variables. i.e. the investigation must be about the effect of sth on sth. That doesn't sound right to me. Isn't it supposed to be an exploration related to ANYTHING we've covered in the course? I want to do an identification of lactobacilli in yogurt by DNA profiling. Is it possible that my teacher is mistaken? What about other restrictions on the choice of topic? DNA profiling tech is unavailable in my school lab. Is it ok to use more advanced equipment in outside labs? Or would it be considered beyond our level or even academically dishonest? Or, does it have to be a lab experiment at all? I heard about someone doing polygenic traits with computer simulations. Is that also acceptable? Could it be disadvantaged compared with a lab experiment and receive a lower score? P.S. How much time should I spend on my IA in all? I know the guide says 10 hrs but does it take longer in practice if I'm looking to achieve higher scores?
  14. How many sources should you have for a History Extended Essay? How many different factors or reasons should you cover?
  15. Hi, so I'm not sure whether I should take history hl or economics hl. I'm not sure what I want to study yet but it probably will be something with law or maybe business. I don't know. I'm interested in history but it's hard to get good grades in history hl so I'm not sure what I should do. Do universities (good ones) like history hl or economics hl more? I'm also going to take maths hl, english b hl, history hl/sl, physics sl, literature sl and economy hl/sl. Thanks!!
  16. Hey guys, Im in year 1 of the IB and we just got our notification for the Directors Notebook but only have 2 weeks to do the full 20 pages. This seems a bit short to me and I was just wondering how long others got?

    Song choices

    For my MLI, is it okay if I pick songs that are from Italy and Russia, or are they too close to each other? Thanks.
  18. So, I think it's past the 24-hour period for both paper 1 and 2, and would like to hear other people's opinions on the math papers. I personally think paper 1 was considerably better, and paper two was more difficult. But I have heard very varied opinions on both papers, and kinda wanted to see the general view of their difficulty. Feel free to comment anything you want, (as long as it is about these papers xd) Strmblsd
  19. I’m trying to decide the subjects to pick for my IB studies next year. Biology and chemistry hl have already been decided as I’m trying to get into medicine. My current placeholder of a choice is studying psychology hl, maths sl, and language A lang and lit, and ab initio Arabic (on top of bio and chem hl). I honestly don’t know if it’s a good idea to study three sciences (yes, I’m counting psychology) at hl! I didn’t get to study psychology during my middle years as my school didn’t offer the subject, but I’m really interested in the subject. Am I setting myself up for misery and anxiety ridden nights before and after the exams or is the combination that I’ve currently chosen feasible enough? And by the way, does an ab initio second language count as an SL subject and bear the same grading weights or am I supposed to study an extra subject??
  20. So I am working on putting together notes on Bullet point 15: Versailles to Berlin: Diplomacy in Europe (1919-1945) and I am really struggling to find good resources to base my notes on. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  21. Hello guys, I need an interesting bio hl topic for my IA. I was thinking about something connected with allelopathy, for example, planting mint and cucumber near each other and measuring how the cucumber is affected, maybe adding different temperatures so it wouldn't seem so easy? or something with essential oils and how they affect the growth of different plants but I don't really know which I could choose. What do you guys think?
  22. Hello! I need to make my subject selections for DP soon and I'm kind of conflicted between taking Business management or English Language and Literature HL. Consider that I'm already taking double sciences (Bio and Chem) HL, and I was initially fixed on Business HL but I'm scared it will be too much. Can anyone tell me which subject would be more tolerable to be studied with double sciences HL?
  23. 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.
  24. Hi...I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I know I'm going to be studying sciences in university, but I'm not exactly sure what type of science I'm getting into. It's a bit stressful because I have my own preferences, while my parents' disagreement with these preferences make me scared to the bone. I know I want to take Chemistry at Higher Level, but my problem is between biology and physics (+ computer science, but I'd rather NOT get into that.) at HL. You see, I'm studying MYP right now and so far I really enjoy Biology and find it very interesting. As discussed with my careers counsellor, I could take my bachelor in Bio OR Chem and then take my Masters in Biochemistry, which I thought was a great idea because it is two subjects I enjoy (to a certain extent, but I'd also rather NOT get into that). My parents don't think that's a great idea though. My dad says I'm limiting myself wayyyyyyyyy too much (like a mouse hole kind of too much) if I delve straight into my masters after my bachelor. Sure, I get that. Maybe I'll work with my bachelor in Chem for a while. But that's also very limiting, apparently, and my only option is to take Chemistry and Physics/Computer science to get a bachelor in engineering. Except I dread Physics/ I'm not-so-great at it. And I've heard it's a death wish to take it at HL if I'm not ready to put in the effort or enjoy it to the fullest. News Flash: I'm not! (As for computer science, well, I'm not very sure because I've never studied it, but I'd assume I wouldn't be fascinated by the unduly amount of numbers and problem solving that seems to give high-paying jobs all around). The thing is, I'm not going to get into medicine. Not a doctor or radiologist or pharmacist. And Biology is practically a dead end to my parents, very shameful, if I don't want to be a doctor (which, I repeat, I DO NOT). I'm trying to cooperate with my parents by going into sciences (trust me, it's not my first choice), but I'd like to at least do something I like (to some certain extent). However, it seems like unless I get into computer science or Physics (engineering, really, is assumed to be the only job that'll get you some bucks here), I won't be successful. I've been told it's best to cry now and not later, but I'm not sure if that's necessarily true. I think if I take Physics and end up being an engineer I'll be crying 'til the rest of my days. But, at the same time, why should I trust myself? I'm a kid and puberty and hormones and total ignorance makes me rethink my choices in taking Chemistry and Biology at HL. Should I just take Physics and Chemistry and cry in a Ferrari? Sorry for the rambling. I appreciate any and all responses.
