Ib geography paper 1,2,3 essay questions

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm taking geography hl, and my teacher told us that for the essay questions in paper 1,2,3, we have to write 750-1000 words. Is this true? Because I searched and I didn't see this requirement in guide or other geography website. Thanks for answering, this concerns me a lot.

No, there isn't a min/max word limit in any of those Geography papers. It's probably a general guideline set by your teacher, and it's about right.

This is very true. But just to add, I think you should think of it more in terms of a time limit than a word limit. Write as much as you can in the the time you have available. I found the following times were an approximate guide:

Paper 1: 35-45mins

Paper 2: 25-30mins (per essay)

Paper 3(A): about 25mins

Paper 3(B): about 35mins

Note, compared to the marks they are worth, I dedicated a disproportionately large amount of time to the essays. That was what I found was best, but isn't the objectively best way for everyone.. I also answered the short answer questions for paper 2 before the essays (i.e. I answered the 3 essays last, so I knew how much time I could dedicate to each).
