did anyone think they did part c of question 10 in the maths SL TZ2 paper 2 correctly? the one with the trapezium window and having to find values of theta.
You had to draw the graph on the GDC, and then it was all the values of theta between the maximum and pi/2! I think...

What did people think of the SL/HL Geog. exam? And I mean yesterday's paper 1 exam, before anyone gets their knickers in a knot and thinks I'm talking about today's paper 2 and in doing so violating the sacred 24 hr rule.

i thought the answer boxes were ridiculous. i had to continue half of my answers seperately.

but meh. two of the questions were from the specimen paper. it was easy.

the things that seem to come up quite often:

- universal ideas (love, friendship, ideology, beliefs, etc. etc.)
- individuals vs. society
- ambiguity
- irony
- the influence of the past on the present (that can be answered with your narrative techniques like flashbacks, dreams, diaries)
- private life vs. public life

good luck (:

ME! :afraid:
Do you have any idea what can come up on HL history?? arrghh i'm so worried about it, and I only started to properly revise now. I do peacekeeping (P1), Route 2 + aspects of history of europe and the middle east.
i've looked through some past papers and some questions are quite repetitive, like the origins/effects of ww1/ww2/scw...

There goes the Maths P1 (TZ2) discussion embargo! What did people think? I'd done quite a lot of past papers, and I personally thought that section B was the hardest I've seen. I did not see that last question about the ferris wheel coming - one of those sneaky things they hide in the corner of the syllabus!
THE FERRIS WHEEL QUESTION LOL. literally wrote nothing. well, i got the height after 10 minutes and 15 minutes, and i got h(21) because it was the same as h(1), but literally nothing else. I had no idea what to do for h(8), a friend after explained it was symmetry and you had to subtract h(2) from h(10) or something.

I'm just terrible at the last question...the trapezium window nonsense on P2 stumped me as well.

Ughhhh.

Yep! The God of Small Things, 1984, The Quiet American and A Hero of Our Time (but I hated this one and I'm not studying it). What about you? (:

Oh and by the way, I didn't mention that the things I listed were from past papers, not from the books. Just clearing that up (:

I am mainly studying 1984 and remains of the day, cause I HATE HARD TIMES lol and yea master and marg. is just way to big of a book in tiny text to analyse thoroughly:
Yea I understood you took it from past papers but like the peast papers differ so much from each other I Have no idea which quotes to revise. Im so nervous. Just post it notes everywhere!!

hi guys, i just wanted to ask a quick question. i made a silly mistake on my hl math paper (amongst many others), but this one involved not answering each new question on a separate page like they requested. i'm hoping that this isn't an atrocious mistake that'll destroy my entire section B. does anyone know if they'll take this into account when marking? or if it's because they mark section B questions separately? because then i'm really screwed.

Anyone know what the average mark on the English HL exam usually is (in the previous years and whatnot). I have seen lvl 6/7 past papers, but my teacher mentions that most students recieve in the lvl 3-4 range (on Paper 1 and 2, respectively).

Nahh mate, this paper gets send together to one examiner. There is nothing to worry about, they do that, however, so that the examiner can see more easily where a new question starts.
