  1. Hi Guys, I am just wondering if I should take Econ or Psych. I wanna go into med and my current subjects (MYP) are Maths, English, Biology, Chemistry and Spanish. I think most my subjects are content based especially Biology and I wanna choose between Econ and Psych and which ever one i can get a higher score in. Saying that, i am in interested in Psych, however do find it heavily content based and then i have biology(i am thinking of going with bio HL). While, econ is okay but i guess it's more logic. So now, i am really confused which one to take cause both have their pros and cons and I needa get a 7 😬. Thank You a lot guys!
  2. 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!!
  3. Hi guys! I'm a Grade 10, and I'll be going to the DP next year. I'm currently taking Language A Mandarin and Language B Spanish, but even though I am Taiwanese, I have never studied in Taiwan, therefore, my mandarin level is lower than the other 2 Chinese students in my class. My parents want me to keep taking Mandarin A but I'm afraid that if I keep taking it in DP, my score will be really low and I can't convince them to let me drop it.. So do you guys have any advice? :(
  4. I've been reviewing my mocks in preparation for the e-assessments [bit of a time crunch, I know] and I seem to lose quite a few marks in the Justification segment. Any tips, do's and don'ts? This is especially true in Mathematics and Individuals and Societies.
  5. Hello, so I'm in my final year of MYP (myp5) or pre-ib and am currently in the process of selecting/confirming our subjects for the IB. Here are my subjects I am planning to pick but I still don't know which option to pick: HL: Chemistry, Biology, Humanities Subject (thinking about picking Economics)/English Language and Literature SL: Math AA, German B, Humanities Subject (thinking about picking Economics)/English Language and Literature I'm very nervous at the moment because I know my subject choices will impact my university application. I'm for sure planning to study science at a uk university but still don't know whether to study medicine or something else such as biotechnology or biochemistry. Right now in my science classes, I am enjoying them a lot, scoring 8's in all my assessment. I've done 2 weeks of work experience in a local pharmacy and loved in there so much! I've also arranged 2-week work experience at a biotechnology company at the beginning of summer to see if biotechnology is the right area in science for me. I've also looked into Oxbridge (Natural Science (prefer at the moment)/Veterinary Medicine for Cambridge and Biomedical Science (prefer at the moment) /Biology/Medicine/Biochemistry). A representative from Cambridge had visited my school and told me I would need to have Chemistry, Biology and Physics/Maths at a higher level to have a competitive application as it is apparently very rare for a student to be accepted with only Chemistry + another science/math (their requirements). I'm not terrible at math. Our school has a low, standard and extended math class system. I'm only in the standard classes for math and I am scoring only 7's (7/8's) in my exams (basically 0-1 mistakes per) and my teacher recommended me to take SL Math AA although she did say I could do HL Math AA but I would need to work super hard. I have friends in year 11 (IB1) who used to score 100% or 8/8 in year 10 maths extended class but are scoring 4-5 right now. Even some of my friends in the extended class, scoring only 8's or 100% in exams (they've told me the teacher in the extended class is teacher them SL math content) are taking SL math. I think only 3 people in my entire grade is taking HL math. For biomedicine at Oxford, I saw that they only require 2 sciences at a higher level (https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/courses-listing/biomedical-sciences?wssl=1) which gave me some hope. I briefly scanned through some of the colleges in Oxford and fell in love with Keble College (but it is one of the collages with the lowest acceptance rates at 16% an only accepting a handful of biomedicinal students (I think it was around 5). This makes me feel like I have no shot in getting in only taking Biology and Chemistry, especially after consulting with the Cambridge representative as well. I have 7's in all of my classes except for German Phase 3 (I have a 6) and was recommended to take HL English A1 by my English teacher. frankly enjoy Biology and Chemistry WAY more than the rest of my subject choices which is making me confused. I heard that HL Economics is an easy 6-7 if I work hard, which I think I can do, compared to HL English A1 which is said to be one of the hardest subjects to get a 7 in. I don't find English or Economics super interesting compared to Biology and Chemistry but need to fill in my third HL subject. My IB coordinator recommended me to take English at HL as he said 2 HL science subjects will have extreme workload and that I would need a third subject to chill in (still work of course but in a less intensive manner) + I'm thinking about writing my EE in Biology or Chemistry as well. I've talked with the head of the English department at my school and he said scoring a 7 in English is as hard as scoring a 7 in any ib subject. For Group 1 and 3 my school offers: Group 1: English A1 (both Literature and Language and Literature) HL/SL and (Japanese and German Literature) HL/SL Group 3: Business and Management HL/SL, Economics HL/SL, History HL/SL, Geography HL/SL and Environmental Systems SL only Sorry for the huge paragraphs but here are my questions based on what I've said above: - I'm not from an English speaking country so would be taking HL English A1 to make me a more competitive candidate? - Do I need to take HL Math to study science (leaning towards choosing biomedicine) at Oxford? And would choose HL math makes me a more competitive candidate? - Does my school offer a subject change in the first 4 weeks of IB1 (if there is space in the class)? Should I take HL Biology, Chemistry, English Language and Literature and Economics and drop one of English and Economics before the 4 weeks are up? - Should I take environmental systems as my group 3 subject at SL to ensure I get good in it, giving me more points? What about geography HL or SL? That would mean my subjects would be: HL: Biology, Chemistry, English Language and Literature SL: German B, Environmental Systems, Maths AA OR HL: Biology Chemistry, English Language and Literature/Geography SL: German B, Maths AA and English Language and Literature/Geography - (for after IB) I loved my pharmacy work experience and am keeping it as a possible option for university. Do I study medicine to then specialise and study pharmacy or directly do into pharmacy school after the IB (pharmacy requirements are the same as medicine at most universities)? Thank you for answering any of my questions. Let me know if you need more information about anything I said above
  6. Hey. I have to choose my ib subjects sby the end of this month and I can't decide whether to take geography or history sl ?. Some other subjects that im taking are: Chemistry Hl, Biology HL, English A Hl, Spanish B SL, Maths Sl. Im not sure about what I want to do in the future, possibly sth to do with medicine or business. I just wanna keep my options open so which Group 3 subject would you advise me to take?? Also, which one would you say is harder history or geo sl ? Thanks is advance
  7. Hi everyone, I'm a DP student and I'd like to help the MYP students revise, by providing notes for all their units. I've done most of physics, chemistry, Maths and Humanities, however I'm struggling with Biology as I don't take it. By the way, if you don't know MYP stands for Middle years programme and is the course before DP, offered by 1400 IB schools. The course content is pretty similar to IB DP. So, i'm wondering if there's some people here who take Biology and would be willing to write up some short notes, on the MYP Biology units. My friends did half of the units already so there's not many left. I'll list the units i'm still missing below and put links to the page where I'm going to put the notes. You can edit these pages directly if you want, but you'll need to sign up first. If a few of the people on this group write a unit it would be a huge help to me and all the MYP students who will eventually use the notes to revise. Also you can probably use this as a CAS experience, since you're doing service! Units: Chemical reactions of life (E.g photosynthesis) https://ibrecap.com/page/Chemical%20reactions%20of%20Life Problems that larger organisms face due to their size (E.g surface area, transport systems) https://ibrecap.com/page/Problem%20of%20size How organisms have adapted to their environment https://ibrecap.com/page/Adaptation How organisms have evolved. https://ibrecap.com/page/Evolution How genetics works https://ibrecap.com/page/Genetics

  9. 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?
  10. I’m a little conflicted about choosing which subjects to take as higher levels. My school forces us to take English and History HL, so I basically only get the option of one other HL. That will probably be Chem, but I’m also considering Math HL. Because of my school’s requirements I’ve been considering taking 4 HLs since I hesr that colleges don’t often look at SL classes. I’m a straight A student, but I struggle with time management a lot, and I realize the commitment I’d need to make. Not sure if I’m making any sense here, I’d just appreciate some advice on deciding, maybe some perspective from people taking/who have taken 4 HLs? Thanks!
  11. Hello! I need to make my subject selections for DP soon and I'm kind of conflicted between taking Business management or English Language and Literature HL. Consider that I'm already taking double sciences (Bio and Chem) HL, and I was initially fixed on Business HL but I'm scared it will be too much. Can anyone tell me which subject would be more tolerable to be studied with double sciences HL?
  12. I am in MYP5 and I am undecided about my choices. I want to either study in Portugal or the UK. I want to either to study finance or computer science. The subjects I want to take are: Economics HL Math HL Spanish B HL Portuguese Lit. SL Eng. Lang and Lit. SL Physics SL I am forced to do Portuguese and English. One has to be Lang. and Lit. and the other has to be Lit.. My first language is portuguese, and I do much better in portuguese than in english. Which one is harder though? Lang. and Lit or just Lit.? Do universities prefer one over the other? Is there a problem with taking three languages, or should i change spanish to something like History SL, or another science? Please answer honestly: Do you think that these choices are good for someone pursuing a degree in either computer science or finance?
  13. well, I'm going to my dad's home country over the summer break and I was thinking I could do something related to culture or travelling for my Personal Project? I know, I have very vague ideas but I definitely feel as though I could use my vacation over the summer break as an advantage for my Personal Project. Any ideas for a more specific/outlined topic would be greatly appreciated
  14. Hi, I am currently an MYP student and the time to choose my subjects for next year is coming up so I just wanted some advice on what people thought of my choices and whether I'm biting off more than I can chew. For background knowledge about my subject choices, I'm aiming to get into a CS college. HL - Math, Physics, Computer Science SL - English, Spanish, ESS I know that chemistry is traditionally a subject for CS but I'm personally very bad with the subject and I've heard that HL and SL chem are quite difficult, and considering the fact that my HL's are already quite rigorous on their own, I wasn't sure if it was the best idea to add chem to the workload. I'm also not really sure about ESS yet, I want to take either ESS or a humanities subject that won't be as demanding as some of the other options. So I'm just wondering whether my subject choices are cohesive and whether I should be taking chem or maybe switching out ESS for a humanities subject? Thanks for reading.
  15. Hey guys, Could someone pls give me feedback on the courses I have chosen for the DP programme. I want to go into the med field. My school doesn't offer both sci at HL. Without further ado this is what I'm thinking of taking: Hl Chem, Sl Bio, Sl French(mandatory), Hl Lang & Lit (mandatory), Sl Math, Hl History
  16. Hi, I am 10th grade student currently in American British Academy school Oman. I have somewhat picked my DP subjects already but I wanted to ask you guys which ones are the hardest and easiest. Also I don't have any experience and prior knowledge with Geo. Will prior knowledge be needed to take HL? Is it difficult without prior Knowledge? How will I mostly be assessed? ( Projects, Tests, Presentations, All?) HL Geo HL Econ or Buissness HL Physics SL Math SL Eng Lang Lit SL French TOK
  17. I'm going up to 10th grade next year, which means personal projects. I want to do medicine, biomedical engineering, or biochemistry in university. Can you give me some ideas about what to do? Thanks so much
  18. Hey, So I am beginning to prepare for the next school year next year (pretty early, I know) which is the year I will start the MYP/Pre-IB program. I'm currently trying to figure out what I'll be needing for note-taking and such. Here's my plan as well as my courses: - English (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Mathematics - Grade 9 (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Mathematics - Grade 10 (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Science (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Canadian Geography (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - French (1 A4 hole punched notebook) - Instrumental Music (A hole punched folder) - A planner/calendar - And a large fabric, zipper binder so I can put all the notebooks, folders, or loose papers in together. My 2 questions are: Would it be wiser and more organized to take down all my notes in the notebooks and use loose leaf sheets of paper for all my exercises? Should I use notebooks at all? Or should I use a bunch of binders instead (I've heard a lot of people used separate binders for each subject in IB)? If not then what do you think I should use? Thanks in advance
  19. Hi, all! At my school, we're having IB course selections and I would really appreciate some input. English Literature HL (I’m really good at English and really enjoy it!) Psychology HL (I’ve always been interested in psychology) Biology HL - Chemistry HL German ab Initio SL (Excited for this course) Math SL (I’ve always been horrible at math. I don’t want to do math studies.) If not, what can I change? Let me know what you think!
  20. Hey Guys, im currently in grade 10 and currently selecting my courses for dp. In the future, I want to study majors like computer science, software, computer or electronic engineering(Possibly). So I am currently planning to take math physics and chemistry for my HL courses. However personally im just not into chem and doesn't really have much passion to study chem in depth. I just wonder if chemistry is HL really required for my desired uni majors? And is taking both physics and chem hl really hard and exhausting? Would switching the chem hl to economics hl put me into disadvantages when applying for those listed university majors? Much appreciated!!!!! ps: Im currently planning to go to uni in possibly UK, US or Canada.
  21. Hello everyone , I keep changing my mind about what subjects I want to choose thats why I really need advice. I want to study Neurobiology as an undergraduate degree in an Ivy League University, and then either a Phd in Neurobiology or an MBA. For Ivy League Universities they don't have entry requirements other than to trigger yourself with choosing hard subjects, on the other hand, I would also like to apply to UCL as its known for being very good in Neurobiology. These are my subject choices for now: ENGLISH A LIT. HL SPANISH A SL (Spanish is my first language but maybe I should drop this to B HL but then I would start with 5 high levels) HISTORY HL (Ivy League prefer History I think) / BUSINESS HL BIOLOGY HL MATHS SL ECONOMICS/CHEMISTRY HL (probaby better for neurobiology but know to be extremely hard) They ask for over 40 points, so I need to find a balance between hard subjects and getting very good grades in them. What do you think about my subjects? Can you give me feedback about the ones you took? How should I plan myself to be succesful? Thank you so much
  22. I have just finished MYP5 (10th grade in pre-IB) and my last report card had an average of 6.1 out of 7. I am really worried that this will affect my chance of getting into a competitive college. My results were: Italian: 7,8,8,7 (final grade 7) English: 6,7,7,7 (final grade 6) Design: 6,7,7,6 (final grade 6) History: 8,8,8,8 (final grade 7) Physical Education: 5,5,4,5 (final grade 5) Science: 6,4,6,6 (final grade 5) Art: 6,7,5,6 (final grade 6) Mathematics: 7,5,6,6 (final grade 6) Spanish: 7,8,8,7 (final grade 7) Are these grades good enough? Will Ivy league colleges laugh at me with these grades?
  23. Can anybody give me some information about how the IB grades? I heard that assessments were out of 8 but final grades were out of 7? I'm not sure how it works. Thanks
  24. Hello. I have a few questions about CAS and service in action. Do long term activites such as tutoring, volunteering at a hospital count? Also, how are we able to do tutoring. Do counselors at our school help us find somebody we can tutor?
  25. Hey guys! The MYP students just had their maths eAssessment and the difficulty was ridiculous, for both maths and maths extended. Due to this, students have created a petition to then send to the IB. I'd be great if you could sign it and share it. Thanks! https://www.change.org/p/international-baccalaureate-myp-e-examination-maths-standard-and-extended-2016
