Do we need to be taking a related class to write our EE on that topic?

Recommended Posts

At my school, we have both IB and non-IB classes, and the two are usually actually mixed together as well. We also have a very limited number of choices for IB courses. Anyway, I was wondering if we need to be taking a class on the subject which we want to use for our EE. For example, my friend wants to do her EE on religion, but we have no religion classes in our school and no religion teachers to be her advisor.

Is it possible to write a paper on religion, philosophy, etc. if we don't even have these courses available at our school?

Yeah. Sure it is possible to write on IB subjects you don't take.

My friend writes on ITGS, although he does not have it.

There are subjects like philosophy or World Religion (pilot course)

Even though you do not need to be taking the class that you want to do your EE in, it highly recommended that you do your EE in a course you have taken since you have the required knowledge to write a good EE. Also, it would be advisable to pick an EE subject for which there is a specialist teacher at your school since they will be able to give you valuable feedback if they have knowledge of the subject.

You can definately write your EE on an IB subject that you're not taking... For example, I know a people who did not take History, wrote their EEs on History and did well on them. However, I would highly recommend you to write on a subject that is offered in your school as an IB subject. That way your coordinator would be qualified to give you the assistance you will surely need.

it is NOT required (by IB)* to take EE in a subject you take.

the EE MUST be on a subject that is an IB subject.

*It might be required by your school's internal regulations though.
