Biology Extended Essay Research Method

Recommended Posts

I am writing my EE in biology and my research method is survey. I have questioned 20 people from 2 different countries (time zones more specifically). Will it cause a problem since there won’t be any hands-on experiment?

Yes, it will. As EE is one of the most difficult task of IB and just taking a survey doesn't fetch you even an E ( which is failing condition). But you can take survey as a secondary research method. The primary method must be an experiment for sure.

Just checked the EE Guide and confused once again. It says "Essays in biology may be based on data collected by the student through: experimentation, survey, microscopic observations, biological drawing, fieldwork, or some other appropriate biological approach." on page 241 under the title of Biology: Subject Specific Guidance. Attaching the corresponding section.
