  1. Hi, I was just wondering if summer IB Courses (pre and mid IB) are worth going to? Do you think they actually help to prepare you? Has anyone gone to a summer course? what was your experience like?
  2. Which level math should I take if I want to be able to (on the side) take AP stats and calc ?
  3. Okay so I'm in 10th grade going into JR year after this summer and I'm doing the IB obvi these classes are set - HL - PSYC and SL - Mandarin and Lang & Lit Now I'm deciding between where to place math (ive always been good at math getting A's but last year I didn't pay much attention and barely got an A (also my school doesnt have A-'s so i wouldve gotten a B+)) Then after that I have to decide where to place chem and if i should take bio or physics (still in limbo are chem, bio or physics and math ) - HOW hard are these classes I took AP US history and got a 4 (would've gotten a 5 but messed up the formatting on the test leaving me little time to actually finish to best of my ability) so i guess that means i'm good at memorizing ALSO my science teacher said that I would be better suited for SL chem ALSO which math would be best if I also wish to take the AP Calc test and score a 4 or 5
  4. i dont understand why the ib is such a greedy organisation.why do they even have to require to pay money for transcript and why cant they just let us create a pdf file of the results which will save time in the future for future uses.
  5. 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
  6. Hi everyone, I'm going to start my first year of IB in the fall, and something that has confused me is the Extended Essay. What can I write about and what's off-limits? I know that you have to pick a topic that relates to the subjects that you take in IB, but can you write about a topic that relates to a subject that you aren't taking? The classes that I will be taking are: Math SL Biology SL Spanish B SL History of Americas HL Visual Arts HL English Literature A HL Thank you!!! 😁
  7. Hi! Results day is coming up quick, so I was wondering how everyone thinks they did? Some of my friends think they'll have to retake... Did anyone think some of the exams were too hard? I've heard a lot of complaints about physics and maths...
  8. Hey guys, what are your thoughts on ManageBac? Do your schools use it? In my school I only used it for CAS, but my friend's school used it for everything in the IB but he said it was pretty annoying to use... Is it any good? Do schools use other programmes instead?
  9. I have to submit a potential History IA topic by July 21st. I'm not allowed to choose anything after 2000. I live in Mobile, AL just in case anybody would like to know so they can help m find a topic. If anybody would like to let me know how they came about their topic idea that would be cool. I currently have no interests or ideas of what direction I'm heading in for my topic.
  10. So I'm currently a freshman (9th Grade) taking Algebra II/Trig, and was wondering which math class to take next year (10th Grade). The choice is between SL or HL math. I have gotten pretty different information from various sources. Plan #1: 10th Grade: SL Math 11th Grade: HL Math 1 12th Grade: HL Math 2 Plan #1: 10th Grade: HL Math 1 11th Grade: HL Math 2 12th Grade: AP Stats My guidance counselor recommended that I do plan #1 because I have consistently gotten good scores in Math, but others have told me that plan #2 was better because I would take three years of IB math, rather than two. So I'm rather conflicted with my choice right now. Thanks for any input!
  11. Hey y'all I have my IOP due in around 2 weeks and I've barely done anything because I keep confusing myself about what to do. We have looked at a lot of texts in class surrounding themes of class distinction (these include the Dolls House by Katherine Mansfield, The Dead by James Joyce and Opportunity by Charlotte Grimshaw). I want to do my IOP surrounding the characters and their perceptions of class distinction and how it affects their behaviour, but I'm worried there's not enough depth in that. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about what kind of ideas I could explore in the realm of the theme of class distinction. I'm not too worried about the creativity aspect of it, but more the analysis as I really want a 7!! Thanks heaps xx
  12. What kind of effect does legislation have on a negative externality of consumption diagram? Do production costs increase and thus supply shifts to the left? Or does demand decrease? Or does it depend on the context and both could happen?
  13. 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!!
  14. 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?
  15. Long story short, I did a bio extended essay, messed up the experiment, instead of isolated colonies I got a single weird blob. No data collected. Failed the experiment. Am I allowed to use external data to support my arguments?
  16. So I started off with choosing The Civil Rights Movement as my topic for the Extended Essay but then I was told not to pick a topic that's so common, because the markers usually get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again. And also, if you're going to do a topic that's so well known, it has to be exceptional. So I was hoping if you guys could please put some suggestions that I could focus on that has a sufficient information for me to able to conduct the essay. Thank you! x
  17. I have 3 long questions.... I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP If I get 14 in my Chemistry SL IA, How well should I do in the exam to get a 7 in Chem???? (I know I should get all 7 in 3 papers, thats not my question. My question is how high should I get within the 7 range) Also, my Econ teacher is not a real econ teacher (sounds weird but its true). She was actually a 4 years Bussiness&Management teacher. But 2 years ago, our real Econ teacher had an incident so he had to go back to his country(England). SO basically, she taught us Econ for 2 years.(ofcourse, she didn't teach anything,, basically it was studying on our own) Because of that, in a econ class, we only have 5 people. I thought I was screwed But I SOMEHOW managed to understand whole thing by myself and actually think I did no less than 6 in the exam. (like honestly my predicted grade from my classmates and teachers is 7 and my gpa in econ is A+(99.2/100)) BUT HERE IS THE FREAKING PLOT TWIST. MY ECON TEACHER, GAVE ME A GOD DANG 28/45 in my FREAKIN IA!!! (SHE SAID SHE"S AFRAID OF GETTING MODERATED DOWN AND HARM HER CAREER....) SHE DIDN"T EVEN ASSESSED IT PROPERLY. SHE GRADED 15 IA's (3 per person) in like 1 hour!!!!! I asked alumnis, I asked other economics IB moderators, I asked econ private tutor. I showed them all my IA. THEY ALL SAID MINE IS NO LESS THAN 37/45 (ESPECIALLY MY MACRO IA IS NEAR PERFECT) So my question is, IF MY IA is really a quality work that deserve 37/45, will they grade like 9 points up??? I mean we only have 5 students so all of our IA went to IB and I think it;ll get moderated individually(correct me if Im wrong). I am legit so scared if my IA will remain 28/45 with no reason... (Because I've never seen a moderation of 9 points increase or something) LAST LAST Question I had 3 EE supervisor. (Yeah, you saw that correctly. Our school is terrible). I chose English B as my EE subject. My first supervisor only stayed for first 3 months. He got fired from a school (He had an affair with alumni...) So substitue supervisor was given by school (I had no choice), it was English A Lit teacher (She was the best supervisor and I wished school let me finish EE with her...) But substitute supervisor only stayed for like 6 months. Because school found and hired a new English B teacher. But here is where all the trouble starts. This new teacher, is NOT A IB TEACHER. She taught English in Japan's Public school. She does not fully aware of whole IB system. So I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO WRITE EE ALL BY MYSELF. BUT WHEN I SHOWED MY FINAL WORK TO ENGLISH A LIT TEACHER, (SHE TAUGHT IB FOR 11 YEARS), SHE SAID IF IT WAS FOR ENGLISH A, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN 22/34, BUT SINCE ITS ENGLISH B, SHE SAID NO LESS THAN 25/34 AND POSSIBLE 27/34 IF LUCKY. BUT THIS NEW SUPERVISOR WHO HAS 4 MONTHS OF IB CAREER GAVE ME A PREDICT OF 16/34!!!!! (WHY IS MY SCHOOL LIKE THIS) MY Question is , when EE moderators grades it, does this predict grade affect their moderation????? Sorry guys I have 3 long questions. But I really need your help. My school is arguably the worst school in Malaysia..... Please help me!!!
  18. Hello, Does anyone know what the word count for an ESS IA is and if there is any abstract required? Thank you very much
  19. On the IB Chemistry Syllabus (or any experimental science for that matter), there is a section that is titled "Utilization". It just refers to other practical links to the concepts in each chapter. Are we supposed to know these links for the actual exam? Thanks!
  20. Hi, guys. I am currently having a bit of trouble figuring out how to control oxygen concentration for the yeast and measure rate of respiration (based on carbon dioxide gas production) at the same time. If you have any ideas, please suggest how I could do this? I have never worked with oxygen before or tried adding a gas while measuring another. My biology teacher has told me that physically it may be difficult... But I feel like this is 10000x better than doing sucrose concentration. I have a few ideas such as isolating the yeast in a container with a specific oxygen concentration and having an aspirator/vacuum pump come out of it somehow for the carbon dioxide to be captured but I'm not sure how practical this is. In addition to that, how do I go about finding 'the best' oxygen concentrations for yeast? Do I just find the minimum oxygen concentration needed and then use values significantly higher/lower than that? I've researched that there's a point where that respiration will stop occurring in yeast if the oxygen concentration is too high. I was just wondering how I could go about finding this range/value. In addition to the above point, if this seems too difficult/impractical should I change my dependent variable? Should I measure the rate of respiration by the presence of another variable? Thanks, imperialbee
  21. Hey! So I was both happy and unhappy with some of my exam grades for my mocks. I was unhappy mostly with my biology and math mock exam grades, my first exam is Math, on May 2. I was wondering, is it possible to highly improve on the real exams then mocks? I am applying in Australia so only my real exam grades matter. Has anyone really improved on their real exams compared to their mocks?
