  1. I am currently in the process of selecting my IBDP courses, and was curious about subject requirements for engineering at Cambridge University. I intend to choose: HL: Maths Physics Economics Arabic SL: Business English Lit and Lang
  2. I'm done with my math hl ia but it involves a lot of 3d geometry and stuff. I think I want to write it by hand I have a very neat handwriting and I can also draw the shapes. Can I do that or would it effect my grade negatively?
  3. Hi, So basically, we were given different History IA topics and I chose "The Great Depression and the Arts: Photography, the movie industry, the radio, literary currents". I need to have a research question and 2 pages of (Handwritten) research notes in 2 days. Unfortunately, I have no idea on what research question to format. If someone could guide me through writing the research question or give me some examples, it would be really beneficial. Thank you!
  4. Hi! I'm considering taking geography SL or HL in the IB. However, when I was researching the subject I noticed that in the syllabus there's quite a lot of stuff on gender equality. I found a link to a book called "Planet Geography Second Edition Equity" from the page "Populations in Transition" (from ibo.org) that is one of the compulsory topics under the heading "textbook resources" that addressed the issue of gender and change. I looked a bit deeper into it and found that there was a lot of material on "feminist geography" especially on the pages 100-105. Since this was directly linked on ibo.org I reckon this is something we will cover during the courses. Is geography in the IB looked through the lens of leftist values and social justice? I agree that women have less rights in many countries and we should cover that when talking about basic human rights but what I don't agree with is politically biased syllabuses. Does IB geography actually have a political agenda? I really hope I've misunderstood something.
  5. Hi! I'm considering taking econ SL or HL. I think I would like the subject but I'm not good t maths and I'm wondering if this would hinder to success in the subject. I found SL maths in preIB quite difficult and I'm going to take studies in the IB. How big of a role does maths play in econ and is there a difference in the amount of maths between SL and HL? Thanks already in advance!
  6. Hey guys! How's History HL? My teacher is really bad at teaching... so can you guys give me advice? I'd really appreciate it
  7. Hello, I'm a year 2 Computer Science HL student and just selected my idea for my computer IA. I have a doubt on whether the option we chose determines the programming language used for the IA. In my case, I have chosen Option D : OOPS concepts . So does this mean I have to use Java learnt from Option D for my IA or am I allowed to use other languages like C++ using Visual Studio? Thank you so much!
  8. I'm in physics HL and I have to do my IA soon. I found this interesting equipment in my laboratory that launches metal balls with a set speed or launch angle. I wanted to do something with this equipment and came up with the topic of comparing "launch angle vs horizontal range." I'm worried if this is too easy for a physics HL student. My teacher said it's better to stick with an easy topic and do the writeup extremely thorough. If this is too easy, I'm also considering to compare "launch height vs horizontal range." Could you please recommend which would be a better topic, and if both are too easy, could you please give me some inspiration for other experiments that could be done with this equipment? Thanks.
  9. Hey guys! So it's been only 2 months of IB, and I'm just...struggling Could you guys help me in choosing books for these topics? paper 1: Move to Global war paper 2: Origins, Development and Impact of Industrialization Causes and Effects of 20th century wars paper 3: Aspects of Europe My teacher really has zero knowledge about ib... Help me please!! (I have to study on my own huhu)
  10. I've just started IB for 2 weeks and am taking HL Maths, Physics, Economics; SL Eng Lit, Chi lang&lit, Chemistry. I'm in a HLSL mixed Chemistry class and personally I find Chemistry to be easy (up till now), so I'm considering whether I should take a forth HL in Chemistry. I am applying to the US therefore a predicted grade of 42/42 will be definitely much more helpful than taking a forth HL, but I'm wondering whether it is feasible to get a predicted(final) grade of 42/42 with 4 HLs. I will also apply for UK unis and I heard that they basically ignore your SL subjects, is this true? Any kind of advice will help! thanks!!
  11. 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.
  12. Hey I live in the Netherlands started DP1 this week and I was wondering if any European students that were also doing the IB wanted to create a study group. It would be cool if we took similar subjects so that we could help each other out, and I think it doesn't matter really were in Europe as the time is either the same or 1 or 2 hours difference Anyway if anyone is interested hmu. My IB classes are the following: Chemistry HL Biology HL English A Lit HL Geography SL Spanish SL Math SL
  13. Hello everyone, I'm currently working on my math IA but I havent decided on which topic I want to do. However, I want to do my math IA on integration or differentiation. If you know any topic that is suitable for HL, please comment. Your response will be appreciated!
  14. Hi, I am still choosing my IA topic.... I really need advice. https://ibmathsresources.com/2015/04/20/modeling-volcanoes-when-will-they-erupt/ https://ibmathsresources.com/2013/05/03/amanda-knox-and-bad-maths-in-courts/ These are two options. (It is better if you can recommend me one) Aren't they too simple for HL? Also, are these common topics that have been investigated by a lot of students? If they are, can you please recommend me a topic.... I heard that statistics is easy. What is other relatively easy area for IA? Algebra, physics & math, etc... HELP!
  15. Hi everyone, So in the break, I worked on my IA topic which was about the effect of concentration of blackcurrant squash on osmosis in cut potatoes. Initially, he accepted the topic but now he's saying that it's too simple. After doing my experiment already and being half way done, I'll have to restart. Could anyone give me some good ideas that aren't too simple and that I could propose to my teacher. This hasn't happened to my other investigations in which I am completely done already, so I was a bit shocked to hear that from my teacher. Anyways, if anyone could help I'd be very thankful, some tips would be fine as well I just need to start asap because this is a serious issue in my opinion!
  16. Um...so the problem is below: I am doing a project called The Periodic Graphics of Elements which basically use graphic design/illustration to visualise and introduce chemical elements. Now I have 30 graphics finished out of 118, and when I hit 50, I am planning to submit the project as a supplementary material for universities along with my art portfolio. (You guys can look at those graphics at my program Alchemy: For that project I have received several good recognition, publication, awards and a handful of followers. My teachers say that this is a 'masterpiece' project and I should carry it on. Specifically, my chem teacher mentioned that people will love my passion and hardwork and no one cares about 4 HLs (I have heard about some people say that 4 HLs could show dedication and hard work as well to the adcoms). So what do you guys think? I choose to keep on my project but I would also like to hear you guys opinions Do you guys think unique extracurriculars or dedication towards an extra subject is more important?
  17. Heeeyy I just started my first week of DP 1, two days ago and I'm already doubting myself and I'm mentally stressed even though we haven't even done that much. Everything's just been a bit overwhelming. I have chosen the following HLs: Chem, Bio and English A Lit and SLs: Spanish, Math and Geography. I think what's giving me anxiety is Chemistry HL or just the idea of taking 2 sciences as HL. People are constantly telling me: "you're committing suicide" "You won't be able to get anything higher than a 5" "it's going to bring down your average". I think these comments are getting to my head, especially because my chemistry teacher is not the best teacher, so i'm also stressed that that will bring me down. I'm just hoping for a couple tips to help me get through the first term of DP1 Thank you
  18. 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.
  19. Guyss, end of September I have to submit my draft for my Maths IA. I have already decided to do an investigation on Monty Hall Problem but have not come up with a specific research question on the topic yet. As I have not done the chapter of Statistics and Probability, all I could do is to search online ways to approach this topic. Many mentioned about Conditional Probability and Bayes so I nearly have the gist of what to do. Can someone help me with the specific research question and suggest me the outline of what I could do in my IA?? Thanks alottt
  20. Hello everyone! For my math HL IA, im planning to do a topic related to Basketball. Recently, there was a trade between the teams, Cavaliers and Boston Celtics. By comparing the traded player's stats such as points per game or Field goal%, I will be investigating if this trade is a significant trade in the perspective of Cavaliers. For this topic, i'm planning on using standard deviation and statistics. Do you think this is enough for my math IA? or should I incorporate other math to it

  22. I am currently developing my IA topic and research question, and I would love feedback on my topic in terms of appropriateness and fitting criteria. I am currently taking IB History of the Americas HL. My topic is the Smog of Donora 1948 in the United States and its effects on American and global environmental policy. My research question is: To what extent did The Smog of Donora 1948 lead to clean air acts in the United States and further environmental policy globally? Any feedback is appreciated!!
  23. Hi, I have decided to use Eric Clapton's Layla as a part of my MLI, but I can't seem to find its full band sheet music. I want to display some of the guitar melodies' scores in my MLI but I can't seem to find the actual sheet music of the guitar parts as well. Would it be a problem if I used guitar TABs? I mean, can I put the TABs of those melodies in my MLI or would it be considered unprofessional?
  24. hey guys! I'm going into the IB program this year, and I have 4 HLs and 2 SLs. 2 of my 4 HLs are Bio and Physics. I recognize that this is going to a particularly rigorous course selection, so does anyone have any advice? Just so you know, my other courses are HL Psych, HL English, SL Math Year 2 (took year 1 in grade 10), and SL French.
  25. Hey there! I was wondering about the course load of taking 4 higher levels as opposed to three. I want to double major in classics and creative writing with a minor in graphic design in uni, so I am planning (hoping) to get high enough scores that I can use them towards credits. My schedule would look like this: English HL, History HL, Biology HL, Drama HL Math SL, French SL. Does this seem like a feasible task? Thanks in advance!
