I'll get a 5. I think. Probably not a 6. Paper 2 will kill me a if I manage a 6 on Paper 1 (not very likely) P2 will pull me down.

Well, if this makes you feel better, so far I have only done a single paper 1 and one paper 2 (both of which we haven't gotten back yet) so I have no clue where I stand (doubt they were great though) So no worries...On the other hand, you probably shouldn't take our Math HL class as a good example - we're just starting our option now and won't get through, much less have time to review

Well, we're starting our option too...

Our teacher said he won't miss us...

We said we won't miss him either

Oh, by the way... whichj option have you chosen?? if this is the one about infinite series and differential equations then what book do you use?? Our teacher got us some strange book that has nuttin to do with IB maths :/

I do that option, and basically you need to draw from a great varieties of sources.

Are there any good problem sets available on the web? The IB problems are quite "specific" in that there are many sub-points and proofs - and I need some such problems to solve. the problem is that (as far as I know) the 2006 syllabus is different from the previous and something changed within options so it is hard to find relevant resources...

For all of you guys taking Maths HL: What did you think of the specimen paper? - Easy, -Hard, - Fair, - Not easy, not hard etc.. You can mention a paper specifically or all three together

I asked my teacher how similiar is a specimen from an exam and she said it's very similar!(She's been doing IB for over 30yrs... )

In my opinion if May06 exam is like specimen I could get a 6 and who knows a 7? However, If we get an exam like May05 I'll be lucky to get a 4...

i did paper 1 specimen and i found it too easy in comparison to the past papers. my ib maths teacher (who is absolutely great) also tells that specimens generally tend to be slightly easier than the real papers. but this year we are "ib lab rats" for paper 3, so... who knows. good luck everyone

In general, I didnt think the specimen paper was too bad. Personally, i found P1 quite easy and I'm hoping the real one is similar! P2 wasnt too bad either, except the last problem about series and inductions kinda lost me a little. Of the entire exam, I think P3 was the hardest. Im doing series and differential equations...and i found the Maclaurin series on P3 to be hard. If the real exam is like this, then i think i'll end up getting a 6

yeah i liked the specimen, problem is it sounds like everyone liked the specimen...which isnt good..heh...
Im doing the stats option which is only calc and formula, basically all you have to be able to do is figure out which formula to use. Ive seen some good stuff on the series and DE option in the books "how to ace calculus" and "how to ace the rest of calculus" if anyone is interested? might be a little late for this year but whatever

specimen paper is what ib releases once in a while to show poor s***ers what to expect on a real exam. i noticed that they do so when there are changes in the syllabus. however, (also from my own experience) specimens tend to make us set out hopes high. overall, if you have past exams, they seem to be slightly more useful.

and no, there is no obligation for you to do the specimens. your teacher can choose to give them to you, or not. but don't sweat about them. it's all gonna be fine

take care
