  1. Hello IB-community! I am currently in high school and need to choose my IB subjects very soon. As the title suggests, I would be very thankful if some of you would be interested in answering my question. I am currently in a rough spot mental health wise, in the way that I am unable to tolerate any excessive focus on emotionally draining subjects, due to the fact that I was diagnosed as a highly sensitive person and struggle with depressive episodes. Therefore I am hesitant as to wether choose IB, history SL or ITGS SL. Because last year I did not enjoy history at all, it was very war focused and left me "emotionally triggered" many times. I struggle because its not the history that gets me, I actually liked it for most of my life, its just all the extra in depth-detail about wars etc. that I can't handle, Then I am torn between ITGS, because I don't know what to anticipate. I am not into technology or computers very much, but it seems like a relatively relaxed subject that wouldn't get me into trouble emotionally straight away, as I really enjoy sociology too. Many thanks for your suggestions Kind regards, Saoirse
  2. Hi everyone, I had purchased the online question bank for 2 years (It's still active for approximately 1 more year) and since I'm done with the IB, I no longer need it. If there's someone who would like to buy it, PM me All the best with the IB
  3. I am currently in 10th grade and I have to decide between Physics and Chemistry or Biology and Chemistry for the this year. I Chose Physics and Chemistry however I'm not sure If I chose the right subject, due to the fact I'm okay in Math and I usually get a 5 or a 6 in Math in the MYP. I have to decide in a week or so if I want to stay in Physics or move to Biology before the class is too full. The physics in 10th grade is apparently really easy, however I know from my brother that Physics HL is very difficult. I'm stuck between them and have no idea which one to chose, I don't want to waste this year learning something I won't do in the IB, as I will miss out on everything they have learnt the year before. I really need help decided which to chose. My intelligence is average like any other person, my grade currently in the MYP from the last report was 6.44. I could really use help on deciding what I should do. I am a very hardworking student and I will try my best, but will my best get me a good grade in physics HL or do I have to be natural brighter than every other student. I could really use some help.
  4. Hey, so I want to be an astrobiologist, and I'm a bit confused about subject selection. Here's a link to the subject page. I just want some light on what to consider. Any astrobiologists out there on here, i'd love some advice. Thank you.
  5. Does anyone know how many years can be used in a history EE?? I am currently looking at events that occurred in the 16th century and I will properly narrow the time span down later, but I am not sure what the max. amount of years can be??
  6. Hi. I am an upcoming senior and I should have my EE done by the end of this summer. I am taking a psych course during the summer and got into DID or multiple personality disorder. My instructor is not answering my emails and I should start it ASAP, so do you guys think this research question is fine?? “To what extent does childhood trauma play a role in the development of dissociative identity disorder?” Thanks for the help
  7. I was wondering if introduction for 300 words is enough or not. What do you think? Should I extend it?
  8. hey, so I recently started brainstorming on what I can do for my chemistry IA. I am doing HL chemistry and I am going into the final year of IB. I have somewhat of a basis on what I want to do. I want to do titration, having the acid be hydrochloric acid and using various basic solutions. For the basic solutions, I want to create solutions from some antacids and compare how each antacid works by seeing how much of each is needed for the pH of the acid to reach and maintain a neutral pH. I'm not sure if this is going to work because this idea is still in the works. Any ideas or tips on how I can improve??
  9. So I am currently starting the history extended essay and I am wondering what type of format that I should use?? I was thinking of using APA, but I was wondering what others are using for their history extended essays?
  10. Hi, Does anyone know if you can do the business IA on investigating wherever a company that closed down should reopen its branch but in a different location? I will investigate wherever it is beneficial to restart this business in a different country and look at different factors like costs, taxes, market etc. Would this be a good IA idea? Thanks!
  11. Hey guys, I am writing the extended essay regarding desalination plants (subject: ESS). It is mostly based on secondary sources (statistics), however some primary data will be presented. My problem is that some of the secondary data that I used may be considered out of date as it is from around 2010-2015. Therefore, I sometimes have to compare two different locations based on data from different years (maximum of 5 years difference). Would I loose marks for this? Thank you!
  12. Hey! I take Biology SL, and was wondering if we have a paper 3? Is it just paper 1 and 2? Also, do SL's learn the option topic?
  13. Hi, I decide to do my EE in psychology (real bad choice) and I came up with the question 'to what extent do attributional factors affect placebo effect?'.

  14. Hey Guys, So i wanted to write my EE on the effects of segregation in schools in the 1960's do you know any good sources I could use?
  15. Hello! I just wanted quick help with my IA question, I have two ideas and I am unsure about both of them. I'm writing it on the French Revolution btw. To what extent did the execution of King Louis XVI cause/influence the reign of terror? Or To what extent did Maximilian Robespierre influence the French Revolution? I think the second one is too broad and the first one is too narrow, but I am certainly open to ideas!
  16. I came to this website in hopes of figuring out how to solidify my question for a world studies EE and so far I feel as if I have one but it would be nice if someone could give some feedback before I finalize it. My specific area of research is animal testing and what issues are surrounding it in the world right now and how does this compare to the experiments of Russia and America specifically in the 1930s-1960s. What I have so far: How has the progress of animal testing contributed to the betterment of society since the Soviet Russian and American experiments of the 1940’s to 1960’s?

  18. Hey Everyone, I am new on this site so idk how it works exactly, but basically my history teacher told me that it is time for me to start thinking about my IA topic. Since I have been reading a non-fiction book about Noel Field, a Stalinist American spy, which really grabbed my attention I though maybe I could do my IA on him, or some sort of Soviet espionage. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance Eszter
  19. Hi!! I'm doing my extended essay in Spanish Literature. I was just wondering if anyone here has done theirs in Spanish. What was your research question? Which books did you choose to study? This is my research question: ¿Hasta qué punto los espacios diegéticos pueden considerarse personajes en las novelas Pedro Páramo y Cien años de soledad?
  20. Hi all. I really want to switch to computer science HL (i take SL) and drop my physics hl because I am afraid it is too hard for me. I am in my first year of IB, my subjects are English A SL, Arabic B HL, ITGS HL, Physics HL, Computer science SL, Math studies SL. The problem is my school does not teach computer science HL (only sl) so I have to teach myself and I am kind of struggling with it. I scored an A- for computer science and a C+ for physics in my first term exams. How can I plan out lessons? Where can I study from? Are there online courses I can take or something? Any extra tips?
  21. Hey Guys, So I am at that time in my junior year where I have to propose three extended essay research questions but I have no idea what to do. I wanna do it in English, Visual Arts or Art History and about something related to women deprivation/representation, segregation or something similar to that. Do you guys have any ideas for my research question? I would really appreciate some help. Thanks in advance!
  22. So, recently, my teachers and my CAS coordinator has been urging the IB classes to choose a CAS project to do. However, we're all in a frenzy because we don't know how to split ourselves up or what to choose. I was just wondering what the minimum and the maximum amount of people are needed to do a CAS project. And, if starting a blog giving advice to other students may be considered a CAS project?? At this time, any advice will help! Thanks, A Confused IB Student
  23. Hi everyone My first EE draft is due in 2 weeks and I really need to start on my trials, but I have a few random questions before I start that I haven't been able to find online (that I understand lol) and was hoping someone here might have an idea? My topic is on duckweed and its ability to "remove" heavy metals (or other pollutants, chemicals etc) and maybe how that will affect the growth of another aquatic plant. If you think you might know anything about this, I would really appreciate if you could take some time to read my questions in case you might be able to answer them Qs: 1. Say if I carried out an experiment where I put duckweed in a small container (ice cream tub size?) of tap water+heavy metal (e.g. lead nitrate) and let it "suck" the metal for a couple days, then took out the duckweed out and put in the other aquatic plant. I would then compare this plant to if it was put straight into the same water the duckweed was initially in and see if it fares any better, assuming that there are now less heavy metals in the water, so there should technically be less of an effect (damage). Would there be any problems concerning the nutrient concentration of the water? Will the duckweed suck a lot of the nutrients out of the water as well, which would put the other plant at a disadvantage from the very beginning that could affect my results? 2. Compared to the method above, would it be easier to do one trial where I put the duckweed in the heavy metal water, another with the other plant in the heavy metal water, and another trail with both plants in the water? Just with this method I was worried that the duckweed would compete with the other plant (for nutrients and space/sunlight) as duckweed is known to inhibit algae growth with its sun-blocking properties (ish) 3. Also, does anyone know of anything else I can test with? e.g. another type of heavy metal (that can be found in a school lab ideally), or any way to test the effects of weedkiller or the such (e.g. one main component of weedkiller that I can test rather than just weedkiller in general? As I feel that might be a bit hard to control) If you actually managed to read through all of that, thank you for your time and I hope you can get at least 7 hours of sleep tonight seeing as you have time to read the forums
