  1. In general, Applications and Interpretation covers a broad range of materials, but Analysis and Approaches covers a narrower range in greater depth.

use of integration by parts, first order ODE, Euler's method for a single ODE, separation of variables, homogeneous ODE, integrating factor, calculus of series TL;DR ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1) Vectors are now HL only. 2) Rank of difficulty: current Studies < AI SL < AA SL (easier than current SL if better at stats than vectors) < AA HL < current HL <= AI HL AI SL is mostly Studies. AI HL is studies but with about 30-40% of Further Maths HL. AA SL is pretty much SL. and AA HL is HL with only 20-30% of the Calculus option. 3) AI HL for the fast learner. AA HL for the inquisitive learner. If you are not that strong at math, the recommendation is AA SL. AI SL is still quite a bit easier than AA SL and only choose it if you are fine with dealing with lots of data.

  5. Hi everyone I'm new here and in the IB programme itself, never heard about it before starting it. I have learned a lot about the IB DP from various sources (this website being one of them), but there's still one thing I don't understand - The IB DP subject syllabus. I don't know where to find it? How does it work, is there one fixed syllabus or does it change? How do I know which one is the most recent one? I would really appreciate anyone's help on this matter, since it's the only thing I wasn't able to fully understand... Thank you in advance! If it does any help: I'm a year 1 student and my subjects are: English lit. A (SL) Spanish as a foreign language (SL) Business management (SL) Maths (HL) Biology (HL) Chemistry (HL)
  6. I'm doing my 11th grade right now and I've changed syllabus from a national syllabus to the IB. I'm clueless about the expectations, nature of IB and almost everything regarding it. My current school that I've moved into, by itself is new and not very experienced, hence lack in providing the students with clear guidance. The performance of the previous 3 batches was not satisfactory as well. The students in the school are not very willing to provide me with apt guidance as they are very busy themselves. I understand that it is a lot to ask for but I'd be very, very, VERY grateful if someone who's well informed about the IBDP could guide me about it A-Z. I've always been a well-scoring student but ever since I started the IBDP, I've not been performing well at the least and this is taking a MAJOR toll on my self-confidence. DESPERATELY IN NEED OF HELP! Anyone willing to guide me in detail can also contact me via email: [email protected] Thanks in advance.
  7. Dear All, Could somebody please guide me since when this change will take effect? and will it be valid for my students admitted in aug 2018? Thank You in advance
  8. I take French B HL and my teacher said that the syllabus has been changed recently. How can I better learn French strategically under the new syllabus? What are changes made in the new syllabus? I took AP French and got a five. Will I find the new syllabus hard?
  9. Hey everyone, According to the IB biology guide for exams commencing in 2016 onwards, it states in 5.3 that: "Application: Recognition features of bryophyta, filicinophyta, coniferophyta and angiospermophyta." There is no mention of requiring recognition features of animal phyla. However, my bio book by Cambridge University press (printed in 2015) and bioninja still has information on recognizing animal phyla. Could anyone here reconfirm this? Have you guys learned about animal phyla? Thank you!
  10. Does anyone know in what way the new history IA (2017) is different from the old one? And what exactly stays the same? Would really appreciate it!!
  11. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has a list (or a link to a list) of all the experiments required in the physics syllabus, like Young's double-slit experiment, Einstein's photon experiment, etc. Annoyingly enough I couldn't find such a list online.
  12. Hello, I hope you guys are doing well. Does anybody have the official Mathematical studies guide (syllabus) by the IB? I have not found it yet. I will appreciate any response. Kind regards, D.

  19. Hi, I've been unable to find a syllabus which covers the 2018 November exams for Geography (SL). The only one which I have been able to find is one with years from 2011-2017. Soo, does that mean the current syllabus ('11-'17) will last until 2018 or will there be a new one out soon? Thanks !
  20. So, I'm two weeks into computer science HL and so far I feel really nervous and lost. It's the first time our teacher teaches CS at the same time as he is really unorganized and confusing(I had him before but in another subject) and all we've been doing for the last two weeks is basic programming in Python and HTML(very,very basic) without any real goal or objective. He also gives the impression that he doesn't really know the course since he hasn't really told us anything about it at the same time as he's kind of a nervwreck in class. To get to my point and question, what did you guys do in the beginning of Computer Science and how did your classes develope as the course progressed? I hope I'm just too fast too judge and overreacting but it sure doesn't feel like it, appreciate any answer and info you can give me!
  21. Hi! I've just begun my IB course, and I'd like to print the syllabus content for economics so I can use it when revising or checking which topics I've gone over, but I don't know where I can get the official syllabus. I'm also not sure which edition to use (is it the 2013 version? or was there a syllabus change like the sciences?) I'll be sitting my final exams in 2018 since I've just begun the course. If anyone can help redirect me to a link or show me how, it would be very helpful! Thanks
  22. I start grade 11 in September and I'm going into Math HL . I'm really good at math but I still want to prepare myself for this course. I can't seem to find any syllabus on the IB website and I'm not sure other syllabus i find on random websites will be updated or accurate. Anyone know where I could find an accurate syllabus or maybe pdf versions of books? Also, any other tips for preparing for math HL? And anyone recommend a graphic calculator? edit: literally minutes after posting this i found the syllabus http://highered.colorado.gov/academics/admissions/PLA docs/Mathematics (GT-MA1)/IB – Mathematics HL Curriculum Guide.pdf But I don't know which books to use to start prepping myself!
  23. I'm planning to resit my HL biology exams and was wondering what changes there were to the syllabus since the new syllabus has been introduced for the exams in 2016.
  24. Hey so... is there even a history syllabus? Or just something which tells us what we absolutely need to know? If anyone knows where I can get it, pleaaase tell me
  25. If so, could any of you kind people link to the new syllabus? Thank you in advance!
