  1. Hey all! So I have to hand in a draft of my written assignment for English A SL in the coming week. Our teacher can only give us feedback this once and there after we are on our own. I understand that it counts for 25% of the grade which is a lot so I don't want to compromise on this. I was looking at the assessment criteria and it is as follows: A: Reflective statement (3 marks)B: Knowledge and understanding (6 marks)C: Appreciation of writer's choices (6 marks)D : Organization and development (5 marks)E: Language (5 marks) I don't really get C: Appreciation of writer's choices. How do I show this in my essay. In the body I have basically three main paragraphs that prove the thesis statement. It is about a play so most of the content is just evidence through dialogue and behavior of the main character. How do I incorporate say the significance of this and this metaphor if it does not lead to achieving the goal of proving my thesis? And what if the play doesn't have that much in terms of writer's choices? What exactly is writer's choices? Also can someone outline what to write in the conclusion? I read somewhere here that you sum up your main points explain the significance of the final product and also come up with something new. Also if anyone has any tips generally with the WA or just essays in English it would be a great help to list them here, I haven't had much practise in school for essays and I don't feel very confident considering it is to be externally assessed. Thanks! Haseeb
  2. Hello This is my first time posting in IB survival. I'm currently beginning to write my written assignment which I have to hand in next week. I've recently moved schools, so I had two main options to write about. I studied Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Marquez in September when I began the IB, but I have not read it since I began grade 11. My other option is Agamemnon by Aeschylus, a the first instalment in a trilogy of plays written in 458 BC about the events that occur after a ten year war with a lot of feuds and some greek mythology. I have been focusing on this play at my current school so its fresher in my mind. At the moment I was thinking of writing about animal entanglement and its role in establishing fate and freewill as key themes, but I'm not sure if its too focused. Ive struggled with analysis and essay writing so I'm unsure if this is a topic I can write over 1200 words about without it being very slow and repetitive. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
  3. Hi. So I'm in Self Taught Polish and for works in thranslation, i read Partick Suskind's Perfume. Now I have to find thesis and topic for my written assignment paper. Does anyone have any ideas? I wanted to focus on the smells and the lack of ementions in the book but I don't know what would be a good research question.
  4. We're handing in our French B SL written assignments soon and I just have a few questions about the guidelines. First of all, I'm wondering about the format for parenthetical citations. My teacher told us to use (Author's last name, "Article title") and I assume he knows what he's talking about, but I just wanted to check because this doesn't follow any of the citation styles. Do we need a bibliography in a specific style at the end? I'm also concerned about one of my sources because I read somewhere that there is a word limit (I think it was 400 words) for the sources, but my teacher never mentioned this. Am I allowed to cite a longer article with headings and only use a specific section that isn't very long? Do you think that the IB actually checks the sources of the written assignments they are sent, and will I be marked down for this? I really want to keep this article because it supports an important part of my argument and it's the only French source I could find with this information.
  5. Hello all, It says on the highest grade boundary for Criterion A (Lang B SL): To what extent is a source 'fully described'? Also, I just want to make sure I understand - the aim of the WA is the 'point'/thesis? E.g. I'm writing an open letter to encourage people to pursue careers in physics, chemistry etc etc - is that my aim also? Pardon the stupid question heh :$
  6. In the IB guide for language b, it says that the written assignment needs to be handwritten. I saw this after finishing it, and started to worry! my teacher told me that did not count anymore , that it was fine that we wrote in on the computer, and she is going to send it in to the IB very soon so I am a bit worried. so my question is this, does it have to be handwritten?? Another question I have is about the word count. It says in the guide that we need to write a rationale of 150 words. Is this the maximum requirement? Again my teacher said that we could write up to 250 words, which I have done, and that that would be ok. Is this right? Thank you for any help, hope someone has some answers!:D
  7. Hey so we were supposed to chose a topic for the written assignment for French V but I have no idea how to do that since the files that my teacher shared with us can't be downloaded and I am really lost. Please, help!
  8. I'm currently in the process of writing my Written Assignment on The Stranger by Albert Camus. My research question is: How does the contrast between the natural and the civilized world underline the conflict between Mersault and society? Is this overly specific? Too long? Furthermore, must the topic be stated as a question? If not, an alternative would be to simply use the theme of conflict between society and the natural world as my topic.
  9. Hello, I am at a stage where I need to start on my written assignment. This means that I am in urgent need a topic. I have been trying to think of one for a long time now, and I am not the least bit inspired. Could I please have some help on where to start on coming up with a topic or any tips or advice on this? The novel that I will be writing my WA on is The Reader by Bernhard Schlink, if that helps at all. Thank you very much!
  10. Hey guys, so I was wondering if someone could go through my French B SL Written Assignment and tell me what they would probably give me like Level-wise. I'm kind of stressing out about it because I really want to shoot for the upper band of a higher level but I don't want the assignment to hold me back or what not. I understand it's well past the due date and I can't change anything, but just to give myself that assurance. So, was wondering if I could e-mail it to someone and have them check it out and give it a rating. Thanks! comment edit share save
  11. For the Language B written assignment, I was told that we are not supposed to write our name or even our candidate number on the document we submit. I thought this was strange... Have any Language B students heard something similar, or did you submit the Written Assignment like any other IB document, with your candidate number, session number, school, date, etc. on it? Thanks!
  12. Hey, I'm going to retake my Swedish B paper exams only. A Language B course is divided by Orals, Paper 1 & 2, and Written Assignment. But here's the thing I'm confused about, if I retake the subject, I can choose to retake it without the IAs, but the Written Assignment is externally assessed, does that mean I need to re-write my written assignment?
  13. Hey guys! I am working on my written assignment in English B higher level and some inconsistency between my 2 teachers and guide emerged. They say that the rationale has limit to 250 words, whereas the syllabus says only about 150 words.. What is your opinion about the problem? What's more, the guide states that the WA should be handwritten, but aren't we supposed to upload it via IB online page and write it electronically? Please let me know what it looks like in your school.
  14. I've finished both my reflective statement and written assignment. My teacher's not been clear as to whether we have to have references and a bibliography or not. I haven't used any external references. Do I still have to reference the quotes from the work used ( A doll's House) and use other sites? Do I have to have a bibliogaphy? Please help, my final WA is due this week!
  15. Heyy! So, I have done Tagore's Red Oleanders as my work in translation. I want to do my WA talking about the shmbolic significance of the red oleander in representing social resistance in the drama. The title: Analysis of the Symbolic Significance of the Red Oleander in Depciting Social Resistance, in Tagore's drama Red Oleanders. Sound okay? Opinions please. xx
  16. Hellooo I'm writing a French B Written Assignment. Just needed some clarification about the source texts - What is the minimum/maximum length of the source texts? - Can the source texts be of different perspectives, arguing against one another for the same topic? Thanks!

  20. Hi, I'm doing the Korean B HL course and I have to write a written assignment. I read the syllabus and talked to the IB coordinatorat my school(as my school does not have a korean teacher), and I was told that I had to write something creative. Can this be just an essay with a topic on a particular aspect on the literature? Do I lose marks if the written assignment isn't creative enough? Thanks
