3. How did you find out about IB Survival?

Can't remember, google probably. Or TheStudentRoom.

4. What made you register on IB Survival?

It seemed useful, and I thought being able to read more and post questions/answers myself would be beneficial. Plus, I like the site.

5. When did you (approximately) register here?

September 2012, I think. Give or take a month.

6. What is your favourite IB subject?

HLs History and Philosophy. I also have a lot of fun in HL English though, but that's not considered as highly as the other two!

7. When are you graduating?

2013

8. What are your plans for university?

Law. Applied to Warwick, Southampton, Reading, Exeter, York. Most likely to firm Warwick and insure Southampton ideally.

9. What are your free-time hobbies?

Gym, guitar, socialising, lazing around with my girlfriend. Usual sort of stuff. Apart from that, hah, free time? More like improve-your-exam-technique-and-internal-assessments time!

10. If you could change one thing on IB Survival, what would it be?

Organisation probably! If I had total charge, I would probably get into the subject folders and further divide it into IA posts, Exam posts and general posts as at the moment it's so jumbled! Oh, and due to my course, I would also of course separate Biology and ESS, make philosophy it's own folder and perhaps even a folder for Japanese in languages, that would be helpful!
