  1. Hello, I need some help trying to think of some Japanese history that relates to World War 1, World War 2, or The Cold War. I was thinking of writing about the internment of the Japanese but I think that it would be too much on the psychological/moral aspect rather than history, (My question was "To what extent was the Japanese internment a violation of human rights?") If you have any ideas on what would interest me, let me know. Thank you so, so much!
  2. Well, I know IB is demanding, but we should also find time time to relax, socialize and have fun. Anime is NOT the same as cartoon, however it is animated. I have posted this to know what people think about taking breaks, anime, and of course to find people like me who love anime!!!
  3. For my history IA, I initially thought of the question "What factors lead to the economic recovery of Japan after MacArthur's occupation?". My teacher said it was good so I found many sources but I found out that almost all the sources available about Japan after WWII doesn't touch the economy, but almost all of them talk about the technological advancements of Japan after WWII. Right now, I'm on my winter break and I can't contact my teacher. So I was wondering, will it be an okay topic if I change "economic recovery" to "technological advancements" in my topic question? Just a quick note: If my topic question doesn't sound right, that's because I'm writing my IA in french and I just merely translated my topic.
  4. Hi! I currently take the IB diploma program and I am in my second year and planning to apply for Waseda EDESSA School of Political Sciences and Economics, and the Keio PEARL program. Waseda's avg. score is 37.2 / 42 but what is the minimum score to get into these two universities, or is there anyone who knows someone that got into this course?
  5. Does anyone know the ib avg. or the requirements to get accepted into the PEARL Programme at Keio University in Tokyo? I've contacted the admissions office but they only replied saying that they don't have any "cut-off" scores, and I was wondering if anyone knew a friend or student who got accepted to Keio PEARL.
  6. I am a senior currently taking the IB diploma and thinking of applying to either Keio GIGA, PEARL or Waseda SPSE. For waseda, although their IB average acceptance score is 37/42, would a score below that average still be enough to make it into Waseda SPSE? Also, although Keio does not have any IB admission related statistics, if anyone knows, what is the average IB score for people who get accepted to Keio PEARL and GIGA? Do they also look at your math level or if you have a bilingual diploma?
  7. Hello! So, I know it's probably too early to be thinking about this (considering I haven't even started High School yet) but I want to participate in an international student exchange program in Grade 10. I would be more interested in applying in Grade 9, but you must be 15 and up. I searched for a topic containing something related to a student exchange program on the forum and couldn't find anything, so I'm guessing this isn't too popular with IB students. I'm going to start Grade 9 in a couple of months and have been accepted and enrolled in a Pre-IB/MYP program for both Grade 9 and 10. If I survive, I'll be enrolled in the real IB Program in Grades 11 and 12 and the only reason I'm not even considering studying abroad during those two years is because I know I won't be able to miss a semester of school. In other words, Grades 11 and 12 are out of question for me. I really want to study abroad in Japan for the first school semester (in Japan). It will most likely be from March - August, but I'm not sure as programs for 2019 aren't available yet. The other option is August - February, but I would like to spend the holidays with my family. In case you don't know what an international student exchange program is, allow me to tell you. Basically, it's when you apply to an organization of your choice to study abroad somewhere (internationally) for a certain amount of time. Its main purpose is cultural enrichment, immersion and foreign language enhancement. The program duration can vary from 4-10 months.The organization provides you with a certified host family, school enrollment, and takes care of the airfare stuff. Different organizations provide different additional things but the ones listed previously are the main things offered. In terms of the school stuff, I'm not sure about classes and grades (I should really look into that) but I don't think they officially grade you if you only attend for one semester. I have also heard that most classes will be in English, but some will be in Japanese; the numbers depend on how well you speak the language. But you must apply for your selected program (ex. one school semester in Japan; March - August). I think the application process takes approx. 5 months at the max. The organization I am interested in (AFS) evaluates you based on an interview with a representative. If you are accepted, then you're good to go! **EDIT** I think I can also transfer to a school offering the MYP/Pre-IB program upon request. I believe that would be a wiser option. Opinions? My 2 main questions are: - Should I go? will it be unwise to miss a little less than half a year of the Pre-IB program? (Grade 10 btw) - Have any of you ever done this before? Any type of suggestions, opinions or advice will be greatly appreciated Thanks!!
  8. Hello, my teacher introduced EE today and I am wondering what topic I should research on. I chose econ for my EE. I will be in Japan during this summer and am planning to collect data from there. I am thinking microeconomics since its easier to get data. Do you guys have any ideas what I could do? My teacher told me that he is sick of reading the topic of market structure, so I have to choose something else. Please help me...
  9. So I have to come up with a RQ in two weeks, and I've thought of a topic and talked to my supervisor about it, but he said it sounds to boring..? I wanted to focus on the effects of Japanese colonialism in Korea and my RQ is somewhere along the lines of: "To what extent did the Japanese invasion help modernize Korea?" Another topic I was thinking of is the different perspective (Japanese and Korean) on the issue of comfort women during WWII. Which one do you think would be more suitable for my EE? Please help
  10. Hey guys. So i am wondering what happens to me after graduating high school with IB certificate? Can I just apply to university with undergraduate program? Because some people said that I have to take foundation for 1 year before go to university which made me feel like crying so much. I am planning to go to Temple University in Japan, is anyone from there? Do they accept IB certificate? However i would take SAT as well other than my ib subjects. Thanks guys
  11. Helloo! So currently I am in the middle of doing research for my EE and I ran into a problem. My thesis (at the moment) is directed towards studying and analyzing history textbooks from America and Japan. Unfortunately, I don't know how to read Japanese and my online perusing hasn't been fruitful in finding any Japanese textbooks online. I was wondering if anyone would be able to suggest any sources I could use to find some Japanese history textbooks or really any other suggestions. Thank you!

  14. I'm afraid that WWI is a topic that has been overdone and whoever reads my essay won't think it's original. Plus it kind of ties into what we're learning in class, so that takes away some originality as well. Should I tweak it? Thanks!

  18. Hi, I am really struggling on finding information about how to go postulate to the University of Tokyo and I don't understand the advantage of the IB diploma. I am thinking in studying an engineering and I am only taking one science in my IB physics. Do i need to study Chemistry to enter to university?. And do i must to take an entry exam for university or just the IB diploma is enough? I will appreciate your help. Please help me.
  19. For those of you reading this and would be willing to devote your time into helping me, thank you very much. Firstly here's the Research Question; To what extend did the abolition of the Samurai's privileged social status lead to the Satsuma Rebellion in the early stages of the Meiji Restoration. Now, the problem I have has nothing to do with gathering resources and not about motivation, in fact Japanese history is what interests me the most. I have the following problems (which I think all originate from one huge issue): I am unsure of my structure Chapter 1: Samurai AscendacyChapter 2: Meiji Restoration and the RebellionChapter 3: Another possible cause for the RebellionI am sure about the first chapter, but unsure of the rest; do you think I should redo my Research Question? (Please give me advice for the structure) I don't know what to write and in which order. I don't know what to mention and what to leave out, what is unnecessary, what is not. It's not because I don't have enough Sources (I may have too many to be honest) and I know a lot about what happened and why they happened...I just can't seem to get the knowledge I have obtained onto a blank sheet of paper. Now, you may be asking yourself, why not ask your Supervisor? That's because I don't have any way of contacting her, I only have her school e-mail, also I procrastinated a little. I know I am asking for a lot, but if anyone of you can give me advice, please do. Thanks in advance -Gabriel
  20. Hey guys, I am working on my TOK Essay and my title is: "To what extent does Japanese xenophobia as described by historians and documentary films pertaining to the 1930s and 1940s shape my views of Japan?" What do you guys think? Any suggestions on how I should tackle the topic? Regards, Kenneth
  21. Hi guys! Currently, I am working on this research question: To What Extent is Japanese Media Influenced By the Atomic Bombings of WWII? and the approach is: To What Extent are the Japanese Films Godzilla (1954) and Grave of the Fireflies (1988) Influenced By the Atomic Bombings of WWII? Since I do NOT take Film as an IB subject, I have a few questions to ask and maybe you guys can give me some suggestions or directions? Is the RQ and approach narrow enough? I feel that the research question and the approach are quite similar, so I am not sure if I've phrased it nicely... or not? I'm starting with some background info on WW2 and statistics etc related to Japan. Would that be suitable and count towards the context, or am I drifting off-topic? I'm trying to look for some theory relating to media along the lines of "To understand a society, you have to understand the media, as it can highlight the culture"... Any ideas/leads? Are there any good guides out there for writing a Film essay (structure, areas to analyze etc)? I can only find a few outdated versions... (it'll be great if you can give a link to the website or smth)Thanks,
  22. For my History EE topic I would like to examine The Postwar mindset of Japan, Germany, and Italy following WWII. I plan to examine the reactions of the civilian populations of these countries within a fifteen year span after the war and compare and contrast the reactions. I have a few questions that require an outsider's perspective. How can I refine my topic? Does my topic seem to narrow or broad for an EE? Would a compare and contrast essay be suitable for an EE? Is this topic too overdone? I have sources from my History IA that would also work here. Am I allowed to double dip? If you know of any good sources can you recommend them to me? Also if you recognize other questions that should be asked in reference to my topic, may you give them to me? Thank you for assisting me.
  23. An overview of the Tokugawa Shogunate as well as it's weaknesses that would eventually lead to it's collapse
  24. For my extended essay I want to focus my research question on Japanese and United States relations. I was thinking of a topic that was relevant to Pearl Harbour, however, I needed a way to narrow this idea down. Can anyone help me come up with an interesting a specific topic relating to Pearl Harbour and Japanese/United States relations? Thanks!
  25. Hey guys, my history teacher is giving us one take home essay and one in-class essay as the only grades to determine our first semester grades. This is both good and bad, in the sense that it's a gamble and if we do poorly we're all stuck with those grades. Anyway I'd like to get ideas from people who took/are taking the Asian route, or if you don't take that, maybe a simple analysis of what you think. Here's the prompt To what extent was Japan a threat to Western interests in the region by 1922? So right away it's To what extent, which means I have to come to a value judgement on the question, I'm not sure what I'll end up going with here. Next I'll have to define "Western Interests" and establish what is meant by "The region" and restrain myself from talking past 1922 when the Anglo-Japanese treaty was formally annulled. I'll probably consise Western interests here to colonial expansion for resources/markets and the region being China and Korea. The hard part is illustrating how Japan was actually a threat to those intrests by 1922. :/ Then maybe at the end of the essay question the prompt (because thats how we get 7s rite?) and suggest that Japan actually wasn't a threat to Western interests prior to the end of the Anglo-Japanese alliance. I'd like to here what you guys have to say on this topic, thanks.
