    Did mine in English, wrote something about gender imbalance and social norms based on "Jane Eyre". LOVED IT. EE was (and still is) my fav thing about IB. Once you find a topic that interests you , you'll definitely enjoy it

    I did mine in English, handed it in about a month ago, the title was "The nature and significance of time in Christine Evans' 'Trojan Barbie'" (which is a piece of modern drama by the way). Getting it under 4000 words was a nightmare! Pretty glad it's over now, I enjoyed it but it was seriously time consuming

    I did mine in English and sent it in a while ago. Mine was something like the 'paradoxical situation of being an educated and oppressed woman in the society of Gilead in Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale"'. I had no problems getting it up to 4000 words (cuz i suck at english)

    I wouldn't advise it... You mean like doing one of the examples they provided? I think there is a criterion on the originality of the topic you chose...

    I need help picking a topic, or at least a general idea. I want write mine in Biology, but I'm not sure what to do because they all require some sort of raw data collection. Perhaps something with plants or bio/normal detergent. Help?

    Hey, I am doing my EE on history, and my topic is how the different levels of military technology affected the rise of the Roman Empire and the fall of the Greek and Egyptian ones. I think it is quite interesting because it allows me to study the cultures I really admire

    Hey guys!!

    Mature student here really panicking over this extended essay!!!! I've done mine on a criminology subject of Retribution vs Rehabilitation but i'm not sure if i have done it right. It's completed now, just referencing to do over this weekend and being given in on Monday.

    Would somebody be willing to help my nerves a little and possibly send me a copy of their extended essay for comparison (in terms of structure, literature review etc) please?? Just really worried that i have done it wrong and i want to put my mind to rest!

    Thanks

    Not a good idea - we had the same question for our maths investigation which can be written in just a 1000 words with rather simple mathematics, and we only had 10 days time... you would lose marks in originality as well as everything else, cuz its just too easy for an EE. Some good examples: Some guy got an A for this: How to improve the traffic problem around his school, i think he used discrete maths or something not sure...but yeah you get the idea, the pell equation thing is way too straightfoward

    aviklotr13 thanks for answering!
    However, why is this questiont to simple?
    Firstly i derived pell equation and now im trying to solve it. Then i will extend the investigation with continued fractions. Will that be ok?

    To other users, will an EE on pells equation, where i derive it from square triangular numebrs and then solving it will be ok?
