  1. Hey, I just want to be sure that I'm not in over my head when I transferred from a public school to a charter, that offers IB. I usually have good motivational tendencies and coping with depression off my female monthly event, but I realized that I had not taken into account that my depression is exacerbated greatly during that period of time. I think that my emotional stress every month grants me a disadvantage that will not prove fruitful if I stay in the program. I do well in all of my SL courses except Biology because the teacher rushes everything, usually not telling us at the very least the core ideas we should know for our exam; which got pushed back from May to April. Will there be any repercussions if I drop out in the beginning of sophomore year? I can't drop out at the end of freshman year since I legitimately transferred in from the 3rd quarter of the 2nd semester. Additionally, the transition is causing me to make up for all of the covered IB information in courses (Semester 1 and previous quarters) since my public school did not offer that kind of education.
  2. 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.
  3. Hello people, I know I will sound crazy/weird, but is it possible to self-study HL mathematics? My school does not teach the HL math, and so I am 'stuck' with SL. I really enjoy maths and I am quite pretty good at it. Also, I want to be a chemical engineer, so HL Chem, Phys, and Math are highly recommended. I am already doing HL Chem and Phys, which is satisfactory for most of the universities, but I really feel like I should also do HL Math. Thank you for your answers
  4. I would really benefit from help in this topic, I'm a fluent English speaker, but I can't seem to master this topic. I always get unsatisfactory grades in class such as twos are threes and it really beats me down. Can someone help? Thanks it would really be appreciated!
  5. Hello, Recently I got my predicted score from my supervisor for my Extended Essay, and I was wondering if anyone knew how easy it is to get a good grade on one if its based on Design Technology? My topic was Ergonomics. I am satisfied with my predicted score (21), however I don't know how accurate it would be. This is the first year (well, we're the first IB seniors at my school) that my school has had IB, so all of my teachers (except Chemistry) are new to the grading process. They went to training and used a rubric, but I'm not sure how much I should rely on the predicted score.
  6. Hey everyone, I've noticed that there is a lack of Theater Arts students on this website and I struggle to find help and advice for my Theater class. Today I decided to put that behind me considering I have been through a lot during my theater journey and decided it would be easier for me to just create a forum for the new Theater Arts students from 2016 onward. This forum will be a discussion point for everything Theater based from the Nov 2016 session and for the years to come (unless they change the syllabus again). Please feel free to ask me any questions that might concern you about the Theater Arts course as I am graduating this November so I've gone through the ups and the downs of being a Theater student.
  7. I have currently chosen to investigate tidal waves for my maths IA. However, I am unsure as to what other explorations I can do under this. (And whether or not this is too simple...) Is modelling and predicting future tidal waves appropriate? I have secondary sources that'll give me data of tides at different points in times at a beach, so I will be able to graph them. I will also use trig and algebra to find the ideal time to visit the beach with my "ideal" tidal height of 1.5 metres I am uncertain as to what other maths/exploration I can apply to this Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  8. Hello. Does anyone have examples of Production Portfolio for Film class, a (sl) cinematographer portfolio? Thank you
  9. Hi, I'm on the fence about a few of my IB courses. I want to major in Psychology and attend an Ivy League Law school after I graduate. I wanted to do History but our school, unfortunately, doesn't offer it. I'm currently in grade 10 Chemistry and have an A-plus; moreover, I'll be doing grade 10 Biology next semester. Apart from the fact that I like Biology, I believe that taking that course will make me appear to be a more well-rounded student who is good at both sciences and social sciences. I've never taken Psychology or Business classes before; however, I'm interested in them, especially Psychology. Option 1: HL: English, Psychology, Biology SL: French, Math, Business and Management Option 2: HL: English, Psychology, Business and Management SL: French, Math, Environmental Systems and Societies Option 3: HL: English, Psychology, Business and Management SL: French, Math, Biology
  10. Hey everyone, So I’m doing Chinese B SL next year and I’ve been studying proper Chinese since year 7 (prep school chinese was a joke). I was talking to a guy doing SL Chinese B this year and he said it’s harder than HL maths and physics. I know this is just one persons opinion but does anyone else find it this challenging? I’m just wondering. I always found Chinese relatively enjoyable and easy, although this year it got a bit boring as all we did was the Chinese made easy textbook every lesson. so yeah, is it that hard? Thankss.
  11. Hello, I'm currently writing my history IA about what technological industries affected Japan to become a technological power. (If it doesn't sound right, its probably because I'm writing my IA in french but it sounds good in that language). My question is: I used this one book to learn about my topic but I haven't used it to cite anything, can I still use it in my bibliography since I used it to acquire some knowledge about my topic?
  12. 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
  13. What subject combination at HL and SL are the best to become an astrophysicist, especially if you are looking at a pretty high level university like UoT?
  14. Hi everyone, Our teacher is asking us to finalize our IA topic and I decided to do something in tourism (in Singapore). So is this topic okay: "How does the number of tourists affect the number of local people in Orchard Road, Singapore?" Is this topic okay? Or too broad? I wanted to do something in tourism, so I was also thinking of a few other topics such as "How does public transport affect the number of tourists in X area"
  15. So I'm starting grade 11 in January and I'm starting to have really bad anxiety. I've seen seniors in my school do IB, and the amount that they study really scares me. I don't know if I'm making it out to be worse than it actually is, but I'm really scared and don't know what to do. My subjects are: HL theatre HL Language and Literature HL Social and Cultural Anthropology SL Biology SL Math Studies SL Ab-initio Mandarin Does anyone have any advice/idea about these subjects and how hard/easy they are? Anything I can do to prepare in advance? Thanks!
  16. Hey guys! There's the biology IA that I need to do and I've been trying to find topics for it that are interesting, and that seem simple to do. If you guys have any ideas, any advice or even any websites where I can get information and some ideas for my IA. I take standard level Biology, if that contributes to anything. Thank you so much for your help.
  17. Hey guys, so my teacher told me that for my math IA, i have to have my text double-spaced, although this results in my IA being long 16 instead of 12 pages! Is that really necessary, or not? Also, she told me to improve on the reflections, but I don't quite understand how. How can you critically reflect on the maths that you have? Can you give me an example? Please anyone, give some advice. Thank you in advance.
  18. Hi! I'm considering taking econ SL or HL. I think I would like the subject but I'm not good t maths and I'm wondering if this would hinder to success in the subject. I found SL maths in preIB quite difficult and I'm going to take studies in the IB. How big of a role does maths play in econ and is there a difference in the amount of maths between SL and HL? Thanks already in advance!
  19. I am currently in the process of selecting my IBDP courses, and was curious about subject requirements for engineering at Cambridge University. I intend to choose: HL: Maths Physics Economics Arabic SL: Business English Lit and Lang
  20. Dear students, How hard was french B SL? Did you sometimes find yourself staring at your comprehensions not understanding a word? In my school, it's extremely hard (even at SL). Is it really very hard? Thank you!!
  21. Hi! I'm considering taking geography SL or HL in the IB. However, when I was researching the subject I noticed that in the syllabus there's quite a lot of stuff on gender equality. I found a link to a book called "Planet Geography Second Edition Equity" from the page "Populations in Transition" (from that is one of the compulsory topics under the heading "textbook resources" that addressed the issue of gender and change. I looked a bit deeper into it and found that there was a lot of material on "feminist geography" especially on the pages 100-105. Since this was directly linked on I reckon this is something we will cover during the courses. Is geography in the IB looked through the lens of leftist values and social justice? I agree that women have less rights in many countries and we should cover that when talking about basic human rights but what I don't agree with is politically biased syllabuses. Does IB geography actually have a political agenda? I really hope I've misunderstood something.
  22. I'm writing my first IA draft and I realise that I am very wordy, or maybe I'm putting too many details in but I've only done my introduction and social factors for my STEEPLE and I am now up to 1034 words..? I'm thinking of just doing a PEST analysis instead, but I still want to do my SWOT analysis. So my questions are: 1. Do words count if they are in a table? 2. Do I need to define what a PEST/SWOT analysis is before getting to the details like we're supposed to in exams? 3. Is it bad to be citing information and statistics from a lot of other places other than the supporting documents that you're including in the appendix? Is it bad to be having so many supporting stats in the first place? It feels like most of my 'commentary' is mostly describing what the market environment is like, accounting for why it's like how it is, with a tiny bit of "so what" at the end. Again, just based on my social factors. I kind of want to paste that para here to ask but that'll prob bite me back later...could I pm somebody? 4. "Will the implementation of localisation strategies be enough to allow Airbnb to circumvent the threats that the Chinese market poses?" Does this sound like a rhetorical question? My friend says it sounds like a rhetorical question T.T How would I make my RQ sound less like a rhetorical question? 5. Could I just exceed the word limit for the 1st draft cuz I get super attached to my words (this is semi-rhetorical hah =l ) Thank you! (pandas are soo cute <3)
  23. Hey I live in the Netherlands started DP1 this week and I was wondering if any European students that were also doing the IB wanted to create a study group. It would be cool if we took similar subjects so that we could help each other out, and I think it doesn't matter really were in Europe as the time is either the same or 1 or 2 hours difference Anyway if anyone is interested hmu. My IB classes are the following: Chemistry HL Biology HL English A Lit HL Geography SL Spanish SL Math SL
  24. Hello, I just recently started IB2, and am already stuck at art, my theme is architecture, I have a few pieces that have small meanings behind them but cant think of anymore pieces to make, so I wanted to ask if we had to have a meaning in every piece, or can I just draw the Florence Cathedral? Sorry for bad engrish.
  25. Hey guys, I'm currently doing my Maths IA on correlation and I was looking at samples from the IBO and from different places on the internet. People seem to always calculate what Pearson's correlation coefficient and averages are manually when they can do it on their graphical calculator and include a snapshot. I'm doing that but because everyone is doing it manually, I'm starting to wonder whether doing it on my calculator will get me marks in Criterion E: Use of Mathematics. Also, literally my whole IA is based on snapshots from my graphical calculator - will that get me marks?
