    ive done my ee in history...but from what ive heard, its rather hard to receive very high marks there just because so many ppl are actually doing their extendeds in the subject. Could it be true or is it just a notorious rumour?

    Our IB coordinator said history and languages are the subjects where ppl usually get the best result related to the amount of work they put into it... But maybe that's just the tutors in our school or sth like that. Anyways, in maths it is suposed to be like impossible to get an A. (But then again, that too might just be a rumor :p: )

    I did mine in Biology.
    I was investigating whether probioic products with "friendly" bacteria in them, actually work or not. Results werent that great, and has taken ages to get all my research etc.
    If you have a bio teacher that knows what he/she is doing, then its a gd subject to do it in because you can get lots of primary data very easily by just doing experiments and you can be critical which gives you a lot of marks!

    I did my EE in History HL. It was entitled: Trading principles: How and why did the Norwegian Labour Party shift its policy towards Leon Trotskij during his sojourn in Norway June 1935 -December 1936.

    It was probably one of the coolest experiences ever as it allowed my to actually research something that has rarely been written extensively about. In the end I had some 8 primary sources and 3-4 secondary. It was really fun spending countless hours in the university library examining government newspapers from 1935 and the nazi newspapers as well as the conservatives. I think I all in all analysed some 130 newspaper articles. Ended up having some 50 citations/references. Finally I felt that I was actually doing something in the IB

    I did mine in Business and it was interesting and it turned out to be a strong essay. Well more of a Business report than an essay..You dont really write Business essays but I was wondering if anyone sent their EE of to any of their unis? I hear that if you write a good EE and the Uni accepts additional information it can be a plus but how many of you actually did that? Im thinking about it but im gonna have to do this sooner than later if you know what i mean..

    This is a question for all you guys that did your ees in history: in case youve got a topic that is really connected to your personal background, should this somehow be made evident? For me it was like this. I chose to base my research on the Yugoslavian relations with the West since im from sweden but i have my roots in Yugoslavia. Therefore i thought that it would be interesting to study the country's/region's history. Now, after a lot o thinking me and my supervisor came to the conclusion that i wouldnt write anything about this in the essay...but first we had reasoned that doing this would show much personal input...In the end though i didnt refer to anything of this. Was it a mistake? What do you think?

    In theory, as long as you have enough data from the project and know how it was carried out etc. it shouldn't be a problem. However, the IB do like to see that you've done some experimentation by yourself, even if it's just a small something to supplement the data and research you have collected elsewhere.

    I'm doing my extended essay on the efficiency on naturopathic and homeopathic sedatives on daphnia, and although I have an experiment carried out myself, I have used results from other studies in my report. Check with your Biology teacher, and ask if you can get the IB Biology extended essay guidelines, to make sure you'll be okay using someone else's data.
