  1. Hello! I am planning to major in economics or business in university, and am thinking of studying in the US or Canada. Should I take HL Physics with HL Math application and HL Visual Art to show my willingness to take the most challenging course out of what I can, or take HL Economics instead of HL Physics to relieve my stress with HL Physics and HL Math, and aim for higher grade overall? Thank you.
  2. I'm an SL Chemistry student and I've been struggling to find an idea that is easy enough to investigate in order to obtain interpretable results and difficult/complex enough to show further critical thinking and thorough application of chemistry. My initial idea was to use a simulation to figure out how the electronegativity of a nucleophile (such as the hydroxide ion, cyanide ion and ammonia) affects its bond length when it undergoes a SN1 reaction with a tertiary halogenoalkane. However, after writing up the intro, hypothesis etc. and moving onto the actual simulation work, I could figure out what simulation was appropriate and I could even use to begin exploring this topic. It was too confusing for me and so now I am thinking of looking at how temperature affects the rate of oxidation of alcohol (red and/or white wine? - and comparing the two). But now I feel this topic sounds too simple and straightforward/obvious in its answer. Similarly, I could explore the effect of temperature on the acidity of the wine / how the pH changes as temperature increases? By looking at this I could collect both quantitative and qualitative data, and possibly use a calculation linking temperature and reaction rate (maybe the equilibrium constant?? I’m not really sure). If you have any ideas on how I could make this into a good IA, please help!!!
  3. I'm in grade 7 just trying to prepare to try the IB program for Port Moody Secondary, I am wondering if you had to take all five "groups" of exams. I looked for practice papers on the ibo.org and they had five groups. Group 1:Language A1, Group 2:Second language, Group 3: Individuals and societies, Group 4: Experimental sciences and Group 5: Mathematics and computer science. Thank you!
  4. Alguien habla español? Alguien que haya tomado Español Literatura? Que libros están leyendo? Alguien haciendo su Extended Essay en español?
  5. I want to switch from Spanish SL to chinese AB intio but its almost been a year. My ib coordinator says that I cannot switch because I am heritage of china although I cannot speak, read or write chinese??? Also she says that there needs to be 150 hours of teaching meet before the end of the year. To my knowledge I heard you can take an online course on top of the course at school to fulfil the 150 teaching hours. I don't see why I cannot take AB Initio chinese. Could someone please clarify about the heritage thing thanks.
  6. Is anyone interested in doing my Sport science IA. I will pay you. Please message back or let me know. Someone who already graduated IB.

    TOK!!!

    Okay, so for the knowledge question, I had some trouble coming up with a question. At one point, the ToK teacher wanted an update on my presentation and she wasn't satisfied with my knowledge question, so she basically helped me come up with one. After a few days, I realised the KQ that my teacher had given me is from the prescribed title for the ToK Essay of the same year and so I got worried and approached her. When I told her about the issue, she said she'll check and make sure for me. So after another few days, I went up to ask her if it was fine using that question and she said it was. I forgot all about it up until now and I'm so paranoid that I'll lose my diploma because of it. I overthink a lot of scenarios in my head and it's been bugging me a lot recently and it isn't helpful as I'm having my final exams next week. I know that everything I've used from others is cited but I still get scared from plagiarism for some reason (??). Is it likely that the IB will eliminate my diploma because of this? I'm really scared and worried because I'm actually trying really hard with my studying and I don't want it to go down by the drain just like that.
  8. I'm planning to do Economics at the UK for uni and was wondering which HL would be better for me, psych or history HL? My other subjects: HL - Math, Economics SL - Biology, Eng Lang Lit, French ab initio Thanks in advance!
  9. Im planning to do an IA on creating a model of female BMI from age 0 to 20, is creating model and finding out the sine equation enough? If not what else can I do? Thanks guys.
  10. *International student* HL: Visual art HL 6, English A HL 4, Business HL 5 = 15 SL: Math 6, Physics 4, Chinese B 6 = 16 Total: 31 SAT: 1250 with verbal 590 Toefl: 102 1. I know my score isn't the best score to get me into a good school, but will I have a chance if I hand in a decent portfolio? or do they care more about scores than portfolios? 2. Are there any other good schools I can go for, or should I just look for bit more lower schools?
  11. Hello, I am a current senior attending an international school in Korea. I hold a Taiwanese passport and so does my parents so I am considered as an international student. I really want to be a English - Korean translator so I want to stay in Korea.

  13. Hey guys, I was wondering if the following subjects would allow me to take an Economics Course in the top colleges in the United States, especially Ivy leagues? I am keeping the option of Ivy Leagues open here. I have taken the combination based on the idea of managing my academics with personal developments and creativity. (Balance between logic and creativity). I do have an interest in Media and designing. I could replace CS with DT if required to show colleges the idea of handling challenges. I have just finished an MYP course. 1. English HL 2. Math AI HL 3. Economics HL 4. DT SL 5. Film SL 6. French AB SL
  14. Hi guys! I'm a Grade 10, and I'll be going to the DP next year. I'm currently taking Language A Mandarin and Language B Spanish, but even though I am Taiwanese, I have never studied in Taiwan, therefore, my mandarin level is lower than the other 2 Chinese students in my class. My parents want me to keep taking Mandarin A but I'm afraid that if I keep taking it in DP, my score will be really low and I can't convince them to let me drop it.. So do you guys have any advice? :(
  15.

  16. Hello everyone, I have to choose my IB subjects. My current subjects are: Math AA HL Physics HL Chemistry SL English A LAL, SL or HL Turkish Literature SL (I am from Turkey) Economy or Itgs HL So, I couldn't decide on which group 3 subject I will choose. (I am going to take HL from group 3 subject.) I intended to take Itgs at first, because it is easier than economics (less studying, more points) and I am either gonna study engineering or mathematics/computer science, therefore it fits. But I learnt that Itgs is considered a weak subject and universities don't even recognize it. So, I switched to economics which is also an interesting subject for me. But I still don't know which subject I should choose. Can someone help me?

    Changing Subjects

    Hi. I am just now entering my second year of IB. I am taking chemistry SL & psychology HL (online) and would like to change from both. Throughout last year I unfortunately didn’t take psychology that serious and am finding difficulty in it (my expected grade is probably going to be very low). And for chemistry, its hard and it’s going to require more effort than necessary. So I wanted to change from chemistry to arts (since my school finally has arts this year) and from psychology online to film online. Since I have a strong background in both, is it possible to do them both in the second year?
  18. Hello, I am about to begin my IB next week and I Just wanted to know. I make art youtube videos, which means my face is not in the video. I know that Youtube videos counts as cas and I make the art videos, to teach people how I do my arts. But will it count as cas even though gave around 5 views only? And will they accept it even though I don't put my face in it? The type of video my make:
  19. " There are people who don't believe in the existence of dark matter, but there are numerous theories that could prove dark matter’s existence, such as gravitational lensing, dark matter halos, and cosmic microwave background. " I was wondering if this is a good extended essay thesis because my teacher said that this thesis is not arguable. I was wondering if she is right and if she is, how can I fix it. Many thanks in advance!
  20. This is my 6th week of grade 11 DP and from the first week i have been taking Computer Science, our teacher decided that it would be best to first start on topic 4 that is "computational thinking" as she believes that it is the hardest topic and should be covered first, today I had my first unit test on computational thinking and i found it to be very very challenging, the quiz out of 48 marks covers purely algorithms and problem solving, will the computer science exam be purely problem solving or will there be other components such as textbook theory and such? In other subjects i believe that all topics are evenly distributed in the exam and have generally the same number of questions for each topic however for com sci, I'm wondering if it goes the same way. What I heard is that 50% of it will be every other topic and 50% will be topic 4
  21. Hi everyone, I'm currently in 8th grade and I am planning on taking both the St. Robs and Bayview entrance exam into their ib programs. Can someone please explain to me how the exam is broken down, what can I expect, and what are my chances for getting in? (roughly 700 students apply to each school every year, only around 250 get accepted). For Bayview, I have an average of around 88% from my grade 7 final term, and a solid teacher recommendation. How well do I have to perform on the test in order for me to get into the program?? St.Roberts only relies on the test scores, im pretty sure. Also, is there any advice or helpful tips for studying for the tests? Thanks for your time
  22. Hello everyone, I need help to chose a question for my HL History IA. I was thinking about doing the battle of la Drang for the topic. It would go something like to what extent was the battle of la Drang a victory for US forces? Is this a good question? If you have ideas on how to improve the question I'm all ears Thank you for your help
  23. So in my IB english literature class we are studying sylvia plath's POEMS (not her novel). but for my EE i want to write about Sylvia Plath's NOVEL "the bell jar". is this allowed?
  24. Hello, My name is Taha, I'm 17 years old, and currently in 12th grade. I'm looking for someone to help me with my Extended Essay. I've decided to focus my essay on quantum locking: including superconductors (YBCO), the Meissner Effect. I have access to the materials needed to experiment with this topic (materials from quantumlevitation.com). Some ideas I had in mind was to discuss the Meissner Effect in superconductors when cooled down to a critical temperature with liquid nitrogen. I was inspired to this topic when watching a talk on TED.com about quantum locking and quantum levitation (video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXHczjOg06w) This aim of this project is to study the properties of quantum levitation and locking and provide ways to improve the efficiency and speed of current transportation systems (high-speed trains, levitating cars, and hoverboards), and the idea of creating bearings with negligible friction. I will need help in formulating a research question that would be appropriate to the Extended Essay guidelines and know what is the best structure for my essay. Let me know if you can help me. Thanks,
  25. I think a thread about re-marks will be useful to the ones who are considering a remark or waiting for their enquiry to take place, as it's quite inconvenient to search the information about re-marks in many separate threads. I suggest posting the following information: Subject How many % was the grade from the next one (if relevant, breakdown by components)How long did the decision takeResult (up, down or unchanged)By "re-mark" I mean mainly a category 1 enquiry upon results (EUR). Perhaps some information would be necessary: A category 1 EUR involves the externally assessed components of a candidate's work (thus, no IAs - they can be re-moderated separately as a part of a category 3 EUR) being remarked by a senior examiner.It cannot be requested for individual components (papers).A re-mark can be requested only through your IB DP Coordinator. It cannot be requested without the candidate's consent, as grade can go down.The deadline is 15 September for May examinations. Cost: $ 114 / £ 65 per subject.If grade changes (either up or down), fee is returned.Once again: grade can go down as well as up.Time: 18 days is a target (but it can get longer in case of postal delays).Only your IB DP Coordinator is notified about the result of your re-mark request, however you will see your updated grades on IB Candidates website.As far as I am concerned, if your grade changes, IBO issues new result transcripts for free.Your university choices are not notified when you are requesting a re-mark, so you should call them / email them if necessary. [These two I am not very confident about, please correct me if something is wrong!]Sources: mainly https://ibanswers.ibo.org/, information supplied by my IB DP Coordinator Good luck with your re-marks!
