    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?
  3. I am in semester 2, year 1 of IB, what is a good daily study plan for someone aiming to get a 45/a good IB grade? Is it okay to focus on one subject per day or to divide them within each day? Can I know anyone's IB schedule?

    Math IA Help!

    Hello! I want to make an IA on the carbon dioxide emission in my and one neighbor country. I will make the best corresponding functions for them and then I will connect my results with the population in those states. So I will find the correlation between emission and number of people, conclude and predict the future outcome. Is this ok? Could you suggest something?

  10. Hello all, I am currently in my second year of IB and take Math SL, Physics HL, Chemistry HL. Due to a change in my major of interest I would like to take engineering in the UK but can't satisfy the Math requirement, would I be able to take a foundation year in the UK with these subjects and take my preferred engineering course upon completion? Also, should I retake the IELTS as I haven't done the UKVI IELTS but got an 8.5 on the academic one. Thanks!

    Math HL after SL

    Hi! Having completed Math SL and scored a 7 on the exams, would math HL be an okay transition in terms of difficulty/understanding concepts?

    Math for University

    Hi guys, As I want to study economics at a selective university (in U.S) in the future, and I cannot stand taking Math HL at the moment, would it be sufficient to take Math SL combined with AP BC calc? I find Math SL very easy and score 6's/7's frequently (this is since I am repeating one year of the IB), so how hard would it be to shift focus during IB (repeated) year 1 and really study BC calc for almost a semester to take BC exams in spring? In this way I can compete with stronger applicants without having to struggle through the other than calc material in HL Math? Thnx
  13. Hello all, I'm in the process of selecting my IB courses for the next 2 years. I'll be completing the full IB at an established IB school so I have quite a few options. I'm interested in studying law or a social science at a UK university such as Oxford, or King's College. I think I have narrowed down my IB choices to the following: English A Literature HL History HL Economics/Business Management HL ESS SL (I know this is a 'soft' subject but I'm not a great science student!) Math SL Spanish A Literature/French A Lang&Lit SL What do you think about this subject combo? Do you think it's too hard, too easy? Also, do you think it's good for UK entrance and for the courses I'm interested in? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

    Sample Math IA

    Sample Math IA View File My paper was on the coastline paradox using fractal geometry. I mainly used logs and applied some stuff I learned from stats. It was awarded either a 14 or 15/20. I actually requested a remarking by my teacher but she didn't listen and sent it off to IB anyway. She mainly gave me this score because she felt she helped me a ton on mine which she didn't. She threw a book at me and said "read it". Mine is decent, I thought a 16/20 would of been more appropriate for multiple reasons.

  18. Hi, I'm really concerned about not being prepared for the math SL test by May. In my class we are just finishing up topic 3 with vectors, statistics, and calculus left and the teacher has made it clear all of the content won't be covered before the test. I really want/need to pass this SL.

    Exploration about luminosity.

    Hey guys! I want to do my exploration about astronomy and stars. I thought of finding an unknown star's mass, by calculating it's luminosity and stuff but, I am worried that it might lack in terms of mathematical content. What do you think? Do you think it is suitable? Any suggestions?
  20. Hi guys, so I'm in the middle of a dilemma right now. In university, I plan on going into animation. The problem is, I don't know whether to stay in SL Math or to drop to Math Studies. I don't think I'll need Math SL, but I've heard that universities in Europe tend to not count Studies as a subject.. So should I stay with Math SL or drop to Studies?
  21. Hello IBSurvival forums. I know it's really late to be asking this but is there a list of all the topics that are covered in 2015-2016 WITH examples? I'm missing out on some stuff but I'm not sure exactly what...

    Economics with Math Sl, where?

    Hello Dear IBSurvival users I have a question to you considering kind of popular topic - is it possible to study Economics after having taken Math SL? If yes, what universities would you recommend? I am now just starting my IB course and I wonder if switching to HL would be a good idea, however I am not so good at Math, but my teacher told me I could easilly achieve 6 in SL or even struggle to score 7 in the final year of IB with some effort. In case you need my subcjects, for now it looks like this: English HL History HL Geography HL Polish (my national language) SL Math SL (?) Chemistry SL I should also mention that in my school there is no such possibility to take Economics/Buisness or whatsoever... So, will you help me, please?

    Help with math exploration

    Hello! I'm doing my mathematics exploration, and i have to hand in the fisability plan, but i don't know how to state it. I know my question is quite confusing but im completely lost with how to write/structure it. I know what im going to do, its just the formal structure that confuses me. Im doing it on beauty and ratios and to test my hypothesis (if beauty is really in the eye of the observer, of if it is defined in the ratio and angles of the face) thanks!
