As a result, the hope is that students will have greater choice in selecting their lines of inquiry when investigating the texts. Candidates can use works by authors on the prescribed reading list or freely chosen, studied in translation or original language, from any combination of literary forms.
IB Biology SL — The intent of this rigorous course is to provide students with a holistic approach to the study of living things. A rationale is not included with task 2. Most universities in the UK require IB students to take more courses than A-level students—requiring, for instance, four As and two Bs from an IB student, whereas an A-level student will only need an ABB—because each subject taken as a part of the IB gives a less broad coverage of a similar subject taken at A-level.
CR 5 per year, YO 11,12 Group 4- Experimental Sciences IB Environmental Systems and Societies SL — The prime intent of this rigorous course is to provide students with a coherent perspective of the interrelationships between environmental systems and societies; one that enables them to adopt an informed personal response to the wide range of pressing environmental issues that they will inevitably come to face.
Why are these changes happening?
Students are expected to create pieces of art to be shown in an exhibit taking place in mid March, as well as photographing work done in the Research Workbook RWB. It is intended that students develop a sound understanding of the interrelationships between environmental systems and societies, rather than a purely journalistic appreciation of environmental issues.
A Note on Supervision and Teacher Assistance: As part of the learning process, teachers can give advice to students on a first draft of the task.
Taken at either SL or HL, this is generally the student's native languagewith over 80 languages available. The IBO is eliminating this direct correspondence between assessments and parts of the syllabus to enable students and teachers more flexibility in creating connections.
