  1. I am currently a student taking IB and a subject I have been quite struggling with is SL Spanish. I have taken Spanish for 3 years prior but I still have been finding it very difficult to keep up with classmates and do well in tests. I was wondering if it was possible to move down to AB Initio Spanish even though I have prior experience in that language. I have asked my IB coordinater and she said no. Is there any where I can find the offical regulations to this. Also would like to know where she gets this information from because she would not tell me where it says. Thanks
  2. Hey I am from India and I am doing Extended Essay in Hindi and I am stuck up with what topic should I take and how to take a topic and how to go on with it. I have taken help from my teacher but he has just given the broader topic like language, literature and culture-society but I need a more focused topic to frame my research question. So can anyone please guide me through the topics Thank you
  3. Guysss!!! I am a DP1 student and took SSST Serbian as a subject. The problem is that nobody in my school has a slight idea how everything should work, therefore no idea whether my booklist is okay or not(by the IB recommended list it is). But I have no idea how anything should work and if you are/were or know anyone that did it. Pls pls pls answer. #ibstruggles
  4. Hey guys, Today I got the results for my IOC (English A lang and lit SL). My teacher graded it 19/30. Is it good? What grade can I get for May 2020 Session? What can I do if I don't agree with the teacher's grade? Thank you!
  5. Has anyone heard of Kurdish language? I have Kurdish language as my first language, and I'm in Sweden now. So I'll be studying Kurdish as self-taught. Have you ever heard of a student with Kurdish self-taught? any help about the exams, books, the structure of studying... ANYTHING? Thanks for helping
  6. I have a few more days until I have to decide on my Extended essay topic. I am torn between choosing Business (HL) or English (SL), but I'm not sure if I can do my extended essay for an SL class. I most likely want to study Business or marketing in university; however, I just thought about a really interesting idea for an extended essay that only applies to my English Lang&Lit subject. I know it'll be better for me to pick Business as that is the direction I want to go towards to in the future, but I feel like I will be way more interested in writing my extended essay in English.
  7. Hi guys, my EE sort of 'proposal' due date where we seriously consult to the EE supervisors and all that are next week's Wednesday, and honestly I'm still so so confused and I need help or just some suggestions or anything, please. Here are the subjects I am taking: Economics HL, Mathematics HL, Physics HL, Chemistry SL, English A SL, MandarinAB. So, since the start, I've always intended on taking Economics EE because from all my other subjects, it seemed impossible for me. (I've been getting rock bottom scores for Math and the school have no more supervisors for Physics). So, I've been researching a lot for like a few months now, but until now I've got nothing. Initially, I wanted to do about impact of K-Pop in Korea's economy, which would certainly interest me, but the Econs EE supervisor said to do something related to your country, and I'm an Indonesian. I've also searched about topics like tourism, transport, food, etc, but it's really hard for me to relate it to the economics concept especially when it's like about a particular brand like for example McD, etc. And lots of people say that it's leaning more towards Business, and I don't take Business. My economics EE supervisor has been chasing me and all that about topics topics and topics for Econs since he knows that I want to take it, but yesterday he talked to me and said that it's really important for everyone to do an EE on a topic that will surely interest us and something that you are passionate about. He kept on also encouraging the whole class to take a Language EE, like Indonesian B and the subject allows you to talk about a wide range of things like analysing songs, brochures, ads and all that, etc. So, I was quite persuaded by that and I really want to do on something about K-Pop. So, I noticed I could write about K-Pop on these language EEs, but the problem is I don't take Indonesian B and I don't take English A HL (I take A SL), so it would surely be a challenge for me. Even though Indonesian is my first language, I don't know if I could write well, but I really feel like I wanna do this you know, or maybe do English A EE. Another problem is, I don't know how I could relate the topic of K-Pop to these language EEs, can anyone maybe share me your thoughts on my issue please? I really need help. Thank you!!...
  8. okay so it's the first year my school is doing IB and they've lied to my class the whole past year about what IB actually is, i really don't know much about it and what i find on internet is kinda confusing. anyways, i chose to do my EE on Language B High Level but it's been more than three months and my teachers are not helping, we don't have any idea of which topic to do so can someone recommed me titles please? i don't want to do literature but the other to options are fine for me.
  9. Hi all, I just wanted to know how difficult it's going to be for me to study and succeed in IB. I'm currently studying in grade 10 and I'll most probably start studying according to IB's curriculum next year. I'm currently studying the Holt McDougal Modern Chemistry, English Literature/writing, Biology, and Phyiscs. The McGraw Hill Algebra 2 on top of social studies, Farsi literature/writing and Arabic. I find all of the subjects I'm studying relatively easy (except Farsi. Even though it's my mother language), and I aced all of my finals last term. But I'm kinda stressed to be studying IB as I have no idea about the difficulty level. The hl subjects that I'm gonna pick are biology, chemistry, Farsi and English (I have no idea whether it's gonna be A or B; it's mandatory to study Farsi and English hl at my school) I want to study medicine and I looked at dozens of university admission requirements for the said course; most of the universities I'm interested in require a minimum of 6 in bio hl and chem hl on top of an overall score of 38/45. As I said, I just want to know how much energy I'll need to exert on my studies and how difficult it'll be to meet the mentioned requirements. Your insight would be appreciated! Edit: Do I need to study physics as wrll to get into medicine? I'm already picking Math sl so not sure how that'll work.
  10. Hi!! I take as a language A at standard level, my native language, Romanian. (I also take English A HL). One of the external assignments for it is the written assignment. Does anyone know if I'm supposed to upload that on candidates.ibo or does the teacher upload it? On my account, I already uploaded TOK essay and I have to upload WT's in English and EE. But there's nothing where to upload the written assignment.
  11. Context: I’m writing my EE in Japanese. How much literature do we have to study? Does it have to be a comparison? Has anyone out there done a language b EE and can you talk to me?
  12. Helloo!! Could anyone help with an interview template (from trusted sources)? I need it for my WT1..pleaseeee
  13. Hello everyone!! As I know WT1 for English A is supposed to be a creative writing, not an essay. Anyway, I was wondering if I could do an interview essay instead of a simple interview. Does any of you know if that's allowed?
  14. Hi, I am currently in my first year of IB, I moved to France with no experience of the French language. I am currently doing French B and my teacher suggested French Initio, would this be a good option considering I don't know French?
  15. Hello Everyone, So I will keep this short and hopefully, someone can answer my question. I am currently enrolled in the Pamoja French ab initio course and I'll admit I am not doing very well at all and am quite concerned about my progress. Also, the teacher we have is terrible. He is five weeks behind in grading, cancels lessons five minutes after they should have started, and all in all its just been a terrible experience. My question to you is this - Can I switch courses from French to Spanish? We are in week 11 of the program, however, I believe I should be able to catch up in the Spanish class as I had two years of beginner Spanish my Freshman and Sophmore years. If anyone has any answers or insights regarding my question please answer below. Thanks in advance!!!
  16. Hello guys, so I got a 5 (nearly a 6 as suggested by my teacher) in my HL English L&L for my Y1 final exam, but I am super worried cuz I need at least a solid 6 for English, since my other HLs are Economics and Chemistry which I am getting a 6 and a 5 respectively. I need a total HL points of 18, so I am aiming for a 6-7 in English, 6 in Economics and hopefully a 6 in Chemistry too. But for now, can anyone suggest how can I ace my internal assessments cuz I heard that for a 7 in English you need very strong IAs? We did one FOA already, I got a 6, any tips for getting a 7? (I am doing my next one on textual bias) My teacher hasn't really explained anything about the IOC, I have read 2 books and 3 poems for it by now, is there any time-efficient methods to jot notes and analyze these texts, so when I look back in January, I don't have to re-read everything. I am studying Lost Honour of Katharina Blum, Lamarie Project and Duffy Poems by the way. And lastly, does it matter if you submit WT1 or WT2? Thanks so much!!
  17. Hi, so today i picked my IB subjecs. I chose English Language & Literature HL, French SL,Geo SL, Physics HL,Math HL, and Music SL. However i was relatively weary about this choice, since i have never really been great at English or liked it very much; i dont know how i managed to get an A in both language and literature at GCSE. On the other hand, Geography is a subject i love and find fascinating, however only got a B at GCSE (i was predicted an A* throughout the year). So my question is - should i move my English down to SL and Geo up to HL? How much more difficult is HL Lang Lit vs SL, and the same goes for Geography
  18. So I was wondering, could you switch to another abinitio language after your junior year?
  19. So my current IB schedule looks like the following for next year. Psychology SL Mandarin SL (Ab initio) History HL Biology HL English HL *I've already taken the Math SL my junior year. The issue here is that after taking 1 year of Mandarin online (Pamoja) I realized that I don't want to do this route. Would it be possible for me to take Spanish Ab initio next year and take the test for it rather than taking the Mandarin test? Thanks! -Paul
  20. Hey guys! First time here on ibsurvival, hope all of you are doing well It's time for me to chose my subjects for IBDP, so I was going through the choices and I stumbled upon English A: Language and English A: Language and Literature. I was just wondering the difference between the two of them, the advantages and disadvantages, and the features of HL and SL in both Language, and Language + Literature respectively! Thank you in advance! ali.asif
  21. Hi, I'm already in IB1 and it's already been a year since I started this course but I really don't think I could cope with math HL so I wanted to change Japanese A SL to HL and drop maths down to SL. But it seemed like you can't take HL in your self taught language. Does anyone know why that is? Thanks!
  22. Hi guys, I am slightly worried about Norwegian Self Taught literature. I am decent enough at Norwegian, however I do not know whether or not I should hire a tutor to get practice in literature. I am worried that this grade will go very bad, as it is now because I have no experience with the marking of these papers. The only thing I do know however is that the tachers are supposed to be more lenient when it comes to the marking and grading. Anyone here who has had exams in a self-taught course? Which grade did you get?
  23. Hi pips!! I just wanna make sure... So, I have researched about Written Task 2 and according to my research, WT2 ONLY has to have the following: 1. Outline : includes the question, the section of the course, the text (e.g. novel, play) and the aim. 2. The essay However, my teacher told me that I should add an abstract of 200 words. Can someone please tell me if there is a need for an abstract?? Your answers will be greatly appreciated.
  24. Right now I still have 4 high level’s, as I only need 3, I need/want to drop one HL subject. My two options are economics HL, or English language and literature HL. ECONOMICS ENGLISH It is not subjective. I can work really hard and memorize the definitions and concepts and it will be a right or wrong answer It is subjective, teacher A might like my essay but teacher B might say that it is a bad essay. Have to do paper three. Calculations Have two read two more books than SL student It takes up a lot of time to understand the concepts. We can’t really study for English. Just need to understand the text in depth. The grade boundaries is really different The grade boundaries are not too different. I’m planning to take fashion business as a university major. So economics will really benefit my knowledge for this major. Language will defiantly help me write thesis in university. However, it has nothing to do with my major. I’m really confused on which one I should drop. Anyone have any suggestions?
