  1. In the Economics Paper 2, there are 4 articles and 4 long questions; should I try to read through both the articles and the questions completely during the five minutes reading time? I'm unsure that this is enough time. Should I just read the questions?
  2. The first thing i would like to know is that, in your IB programs do your teachers communicate with each other so that they don't plan tests or assignments on the same day so they don't overwhelm the students? I'm going through a difficult time since my IB coordinator has told my class of 2020 that if we joined IB that it would be tough and challenging but the teachers talk to each other and plan their schedules so they don't overwhelm us. Some of the teachers talk to each other but rarely .... I spoke out about this since at this point in the school year their is so much stuff like assignments, projects, AP tests, finals due all in so little time and its just not me who feels overwhelm its other students in my class. I talked and explained to my IB coordinator about all that is going on and he sent out an email in response, to all the teachers and some are mad at me for speaking out about this. What should i do next and did i do anything wrong please help cause i don't know what to do and i don't want to make this problem into a bigger one.

    TOK PRESENTATION RLS HELP!

    Howdy, fellow IB kids I'm really struggling to find a RLS for my TOK presentation. I had to come up with a knowledge question really suddenly and it is "To what extent does one have the responsibility to share (substantial) personal knowledge?" My main idea for the RLS is to find a case where authorities, scientist have kept a secret from the public that could potentially be really important. Right now my only RLS idea is from the show "The 100" where they are all up on a space ship or something and an engineer finds out that the oxygen will soon run out. When he tells the president, he doesn't allow him to share the discovery to others and kills him to make sure of it. My teacher said that this will probably work, but a REAL RLS would be much better. So if you have any ideas of incidences kind of similar to that I would be REALLY GRATEFUL!

    Im horrified, please help!

    Hello everyone! Right now I feel that I reached my lowest point in my life. I am failing IB, and generaly feel so depressed. In our school we have marking 3 periods and end of year examps which count like a 4th marking period. Im finnishing IBDP yerar 1 and my grades wouldnt be worse: marking period 1= 24 points, marking period 2= 27 points and marking period 3= from my aproximate calculations i figured I wouldnt recieve more than 22-23! The subjects that i take are: Biology HL, English HL, Psychology HL, Chemistry HL, Math sl, French sl. I struggle mostly with math and CHEMISTRY (I HAVE A HORRIBLE TEACHER WHO DOSNT EVEN TEACH). I dont know what to do... I WORK REALLY HARD, tutors and past papers but nothing seems to work for me, idk. Please suggest something to me, a technique or options for universities that I have a chance in.. Also what is the outcome of these grades? How are predicted and real ib grades calculated?

    Maths SL / Maths Studies

    Hey guys, So I am currently in a maths SL class and I am not doing that bad, but I am considering dropping to maths studies because of the teacher. She is failing me now (apparently it was a mistake and she's lowering my grade for EXCUSED absences when I was sick, but that mistake should take place since it was written on my report card that im failing), and we have this weird thing now, our class is divided into four groups (every group has a leader) and every lesson we have a test or two, and before that a leader has 5-10mins for explaining a topic. We get grades for that, and my group is getting the lowest scores and those low grades are affecting our predicted grades. Anyways, because of that I have decided to drop to studies but the only thing that is holding me back are universities. But at the same time it is better to be sure that ill pass IB with a good grade from studies than failing SL πŸ˜• Can someone help me with deciding on what should I do please??? πŸ˜•

    EE Psychology

    Hi, I have decided to do my EE on psychology, and could it be more into criminal psychology? I am asking here because my teacher was like I will check that and he never gave me the answer also do I have to conduct any experiment for my EE? My friend said that I have to do the experiment on which I will write EE (I know that I have to do an experiment for IA but what about EE)??
  7. Hello, Im currently in grade 10 and as you know IB math curriculum is changing starting from next year. Im conflicted on whether i should take math application and interpretation HL or analysis and approach SL. These are the only two options available for me. Im definitely not taking application and interpretation SL as its very similar to math studies and i want to major in computer science in the future which involves some actual math. Can someone please explain to me the differences between the courses and which will work best for computer science?
  8. I was hoping to start a blog in order to add up to my creativity section of CAS but I'm not sure if I can do it since it will not have any supervisor. Can I make my CAS coordinator sign it or do i even need a supervisor for such CAS? Thanks for the help!

    Plagiarism or not?

    So i sent off my directors notebook officially and i only just noticed that i didn't in text cite the lines from the play text that i used. I put all the quotes together and divided aganist my total word count and it makes 3 percent of the overall word count. I did however put the play text in my bibliography, will I be okay or should i be really scared?
  11. Not doing really great with the paper 2, is it still possible to pass if you pass the paper 1 and paper 3?
  12. Hello everyone. I've been trying to come up with a good research question for a philosophy EE and for the moment I just know that I would like to discuss the importance that utilitarianism (if it needs to be more specific I'd like to specifically discuss Mill's utilitarian perspectives) has had in the development of feminism. But I've been having great issues trying to properly structure my research question. Could someone please help me out? I'd appreciate it SO SO MUCH

    HL Economics or History ?

    I'm joining IB in April and I've take the following subjects- HL-English, Economics and History SL-ESS, Maths Applications and Interpretations, French ab inito. My school is telling me that I can't take both economics and history as subjects as they clash in the school's time table. Hence, I have been told to opt out of either one and take psychology HL instead. I want to study International Relations in the US and then go to law school so what do you suggest I do; should I leave econ or history ? I've heard econ is easy to score in and hist requires a lot of hard work and commitment however I am ready to take up that challenge and I love history. But what is more important for International Relations? Econ or Hist? I'm so heartbroken because I have zero interest in psychology and I will have to study it. And my actual HL combinations were killers for uni. I don't know what to do now.

    URGENT: IB BIOLOGY preparation for

    I hope I get a response that may aid my situation, but please take time for this 5 minute - read and read the whole thing, and please bear with me as I give you some background knowledge over my case, as I need all the help that I could get at this stage. So over the past 2 years (2018 & 2019) of IB I've dealt with 3 different teachers, obviously with different expertise, who taught me IB Biology higher lever (HL). Unfortunately the first teacher in my first year (2018) of the dp programme was of very low expertise. The teacher demanded we abide by the notes he compiled, which were incomplete and lacked important information. However, bing we were new to the dp programme and completely trusted our teacher to get us to a level 7 in biology, we followed his demand. Keeping in mind that all throughout the 1st year (2018) we were examined based on these horrible notes with questions that in no way shape or form are close to the ib past papers' questions. Those were the topics he taught us (keeping in mind the lack of detail and incompleted topics): β–ͺ1 (cells) β–ͺ2 (molecular bio) β–ͺ1/2 of 6 (human physiology) β–ͺ1/2 of 7 (DNA) The 2nd year (2019) comes he leaves but another teacher comes also demanding we study from her notes, except they were way better at least. To discover that after two months this teacher also leaves without notice. Those were the topics she taught us: β–ͺ11 (animal physiology) β–ͺ9.1 and 9.2 only, from topic 9 (plant biology). Following that comes another teacher who I'm thankful for her great expertise. The issue was that she was tight in time in terms of having to teach us the following topics: β–ͺ 3 (genetics) β–ͺ 4 (ecology) β–ͺ 5 (evolution) β–ͺ 6 (human physio) (the rest of it) β–ͺ 7 (DNA) (the rest of it) β–ͺ 8 (metabolism / respiration / photosynthesis) β–ͺ 9 (plant biology) (the rest of it) β–ͺ 10 (genetics and evolution) β–ͺ Option (D: nutrition) Where topic 8 (metabolism / respiration / photosynthesis) WAS NEVER COVERED. Also, because she was tight in time, she had to finish the following topics during a MONTH only: 2 (parts of it) + 6 + 7 + Option D. Therefore I have only studied from the "Andrew Alott Oxford Biology" course book the following topics: 3 + 10 + 4 + 9 + 11. And the rest of these topics, being: 1 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + Option D I have never studied well from the "Andrew Alott, Oxford Biology" course book yet. Thus what would you suggest I do for the mocks in 20th of March as well as the externals in may 2019 (biology exam p1 & p1 specifically on 09/05/19? Would i be able to get a 7 in biology HL by only studying from the STUDY GUIDE by "Andrew Alott, Oxford Biology" as well as solving past papers, OR do I have to study from the "Andrew Alott, Oxford Biology" course book to get a 7. Or should I study what I can from the "Andrew Alott, Oxford Biology" COURSE BOOK for the MOCK EXAM (P1 + P2 + P3) in 20/03/19 regardless of what mark I get, so that by the time the externals come about I wold have studied the entire COURSE BOOK in order to get a 7 in biology HL in the externals (at least, if not in the mocks as well)? TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER THE QUESTION ABOVE KEEP IN MIND THE FOLLOWING: ● MOCK EXAMS START: 20/03/19 ● MOCK EXAMS END: 15/04/19 ● DURATION TILL BIOLOGY EXTERNAL EXAM: 24 days *keeping in mind that I have OTHER SUBJECTS prior to the biology exam of which I have to study for the externals. Below are the subjects I take along with each is its external exam date. My Subjects and their External exam dates: ● BUSINESS (SL) P1: 03/05/19 / P2: 06/05/19 ● ARABIC (A, SL) P1: 06/05/19 / P2: 07/05/19 ● BIOLOGY (HL) P1 + P2: 09/05/19 / P3: 10 /05/19 ● MATH (SL) P1: 13/05/19 / P2: 14/05/19 ● ENGLISH (B, SL) P1: 16/05/19 / P2: 17/05/19 ● DT (HL) P1 + P2: 20/05/19 / P3: 21/05/19 *Here is the study guide if you want to take a look at it to be able to answer me: Study Guide by "Andrew Alott, Oxford Biology": https://drive.google.com/drive/mobile/folders/1Wph6zPTQBP_t_p4wx5aFlezafbHyTE-d/1MJRMpQRykUEQyFdInKvHKLQCZmii12ao/1x8PpP70oN1rIquvjUbtEQvFY610Va_jm?usp=sharing&sort=13&direction=a Course companion / course book / text boom image: by "Andrew Alott, Oxford Biology": https://www.google.com/search?q=andrew+allott+biology+course+companion&client=ms-android-samsung&source=android-browser&prmd=inv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiG5qLMjYfhAhWR16QKHQa_DdsQ_AUoAXoECAwQAQ&biw=360&bih=616#imgrc=uROuNYVVoEAzMM An immediate sufficient response would be extremely appreciated to a fellow ib student in GREAT NEED!

  20. I have done some research and it seems like the requirements to get into a German university are very high(looking at the points as you need 37-39 minimum). I just wanted to know if it is easier to get into a university in the UK or if German universities appreciate me doing IB.

Is it possible to change the level for retake?? Should I retake chem as well? my grades are maths hl 4 phy hl 6 chem hl 5 eng b hl 6 kor a sl 6 b&m sl 6 2 bonus =35 Will there be enough time to do the IAs and exam preparation for both maths and chem? or should I focus on maths?? Thank you!
  23. Hi everyone, I am currently studying in Year 12 (Grade 11) and I'm wondering when do I apply. I visited many different Canadian unis website but all I can see is dates and deadline. Do I apply during my senior year or after my graduation? Because I see IB general requirement for a score to be eligible to apply, but wouldn't that be finalized after my graduation? Another concern that I have is that if I have to use my predicted score to apply this post-2019, I wouldn't get accepted since I'm going to be honest, my first term score is horrible: Mathematics SL 3, Computer Science HL 4, English A SL 4, Business Management HL 6, French AB 4, Music HL 5, Overall 26. But I believe that I can get my grades up since my first term grades have been a reminder of how much I have to work for IB and my grades have improved after term 2's mock exams. But is it too late now? My desired university is McMaster and some other Ontario unis such as Brock and Guelph. And I want to major in Computer Science. Also, this next question goes to everyone who major or majored in computer science in Canada. I have seen the IB general requirement for McMaster and it includes "Two of Sciences: Biology, Chemistry or Physics". But since I have decided a long time ago that I want to study computer science, I chose CS for group 4(Experimental and sciences). Does this mean I will not be eligible to apply? I am kind of in a dark and don't know how Canadian universities admission works since I would be the first (hopefully) to go study abroad in my gigantic family tree. I'm in a British international school that has quite a low reputation for alumni who went to a decent Canadian university. So literally I have no one to consult. Thank you very much 😊
  24. Which subject do you think is easier, English Language & Literature HL or History HL? My other subjects: HL: Math - Economics - English Lang & Lit / History SL: French ab initio - Biology - English Lang & Lit / History I had recently read from a lot of discussions that History HL is considered to be one of the HARDEST subjects of the IB, and with my subject combination already including Math HL (possibly the hardest subject), I am worried about the heavy workload I am going to face next year. The reason why I'm deciding wether I should choose either History or English at HL, it's due to the requirement that I need at least one essay subject HL for my future degree. So between English Lang & Lit and History HL, which one do you think is the easier one? Thanks in advance!
  25. Hello, I am currently at a school running the IB diploma for the first time ever and my grade has become the Guinea pigs. This is fine but students are convinced that the school is not running it properly. At the moment, my predicted grades are a concern. In french class, my teacher has not converted any of our grades from IB to the regular diploma scores. In addition, she is not weighting the ib-styled exams as much as content for the province’s curriculum. Meanwhile in math class, my ib-styled exam was higher, so was my IA and so is the mean of all my tests and assignments this year. I have risen my math mark up 20% since the beginning even though before this year they did nothing ib (did not mark ib, no ib tests, no ib times for tests etc). How are they getting their marks?! What can I do?!
