How many WTs do we have to submit at SL?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm super confused about the Written Task.

Is it correct that SL students have to write 3 WT in the two years and submit only one to the IB? Also, do we have to write both in the language part and the literature part? If so, which ones do we submit to the IB?

That is correct: you need to produce at least three WT and submit one to the IB. You need at least one from each of language and literature. Once your teacher grades/reads them, you will submit the highest graded one. 

For questions regarding IB assessment requirements, see the relevant IB guide from https://www.ibsurvival.com/files/category/14-ib-syllabus-data-booklets/. However you are using the new Class of 2020 guide, as the course has just been updated. A web synopsis is available here: https://www.thinkib.net/englishalanglit/page/2536/written-tasks.

If I've gotta submit the one in which I got the highest then I can focus all my energy on doing one written task and just leave the rest. I don't think I should bother doing the other two since if they're just not going to be considered.

That should be your decision, but assuming your grade increases with each attempt, you should do reasonably good job on earlier tries to prepare for the last. You dont want to goof on first two only to have learned nothing useful for the final attempt.

But isn't it much better to practice the actual paper 1 and paper 2 than completing a written task that doesn't actually follow the same format as the answer we give in the paper. It really takes a lot of effort to do one written task and we have to do three...it kind of feels impossible with all these paper pilled up.. I'd rather prepare for the papers...
