Extended Essay Marks
This is the unofficial subreddit for all things concerning the International Baccalaureate, an academic credential accorded to secondary students from around the world after two vigorous years of study, culminating in challenging exams.This subreddit encourages questions, constructive feedback, and the sharing of knowledge and resources among IB students, alumni, and teachers.So you will show us some of your thinking, decision-making and planning along the way.And you will try to show that you’re taking “an intellectual approach” and have a lot of “personal engagement.” Here's what the they (the IB big-shots) DON’T want, what they DO want and HOW to do it: The 4 rules above are my best thinking about how you can produce reflections that can be described by the top (5-6) mark band. It's worth having a look at the top mark band yourself. I have used this article to guide me for my last 2 IA's and when I was assigned my 3rd and final Econ IA, the first thing I did once I got my Econ article, was open this page. -Keegen Payne (Victoria, British Columbia) "I actually just wanted to let you know that you have been a very big help for me in TOK and Economics. "-Alexa A @ Pechersk School International Kyiv (Ukraine) "Thank you so much for this structure!Just today I was talking with another friend of mine who, I just found out, also happens to be following your blog."-Alyson @ EF Academy (New York) "I just wanted to say that I got a 6 on my SL economics exam last year, and I strongly believe that was because of all the help I got from this website on commentaries. Woods, thank you so much for your structure for TOK essays. I was about to give up on my TOK presentation when I saw this page!It's really helped me develop a clear idea of what to do when I was absolutely clueless before! Now I know I can deal with the IB and TOK in particular! "-Mateo (Peru) "Thank you so much for all of this voluntary support.
"-Hachi @ Anglo-Chinese School (International) School (Singapore) "Just wanted to send you a note of appreciation for the great and selfless contribution you have made.
Note that the subreddit is not run by the International Baccalaureate.
As you already know, the new extended essay criteria include 6 marks for “Engagement.” That's 6 marks out of 35, meaning these reflections are worth 17.6% of your EE mark!
Thank you so much."-"Desperate Student" "Just wanted to say, as a fellow Economics & Business teacher of IB, I love your site. My students in Barcelona love it too and it makes my job easier. Really good and inspirational information on your site! Unsure as to what I would do without these posts these posts as a guide.
"-Faraz Mirza @ The American School of Barcelona "Thank you! Thanks again."-"Procrastinator" "I am an IB student from India and I am very very thankful to you for these sites.
