    is a PAIN!...........seriously i suck so much in maths...i hate it!:mad: ....i got a friggin' 2 in my mock...a 2!!!!!!!! :eek: ......seriously....its the only subject thats putting my ib-overall score down. in every other subject i manage to get 6's and 7's, even in Physics!!!! but seriously i curse the day i chose to do maths standard level!...and its friggin STANDARD..it shouldn't be taking up most of my study time..i mean how do people in higher level survive?....the IB exam is barely 3 weeks away...and at this point i'd be satisfied with a 4, even maybe a 3.

    anyone have any advice as to how i should devide up my time. Or any crash-course revision guide?

    I think the best thing for u now is to get help (if u can).....a private tutor or something, just spend about 2 hours a day going through the stuff u absolutly dont know. I think by that you'll be able to pick up an extra 2 or 3 points.
    I know it may cost a lot but it's so worth it.

    one thing i learned in IB is knowing when to call for help.
    Good Luck

    get a tutor or if you have a text book, redo as many of the questions that are related to the subjects you have studied. This should help you remember a lot more when it comes to the exam. If you get stuck on any topics you can just post some of the questions here and someone will probally be willing to explain it.

    I take higher level maths, and its one of the easiest subjects i take

    just have some more practice from the previous past math exams. it'll give you more ideas of how math in IB is gonna be like in the final paper. hopefully the questions from past exams will pretty much give you more help

    Hmmm, I would say the studies syllabus can be learnt in about 2 hours. Can you switch now?

    that's really strange :confused: .
    at my school, i've heard of people going from higher to standard (especially) and from standard to studies (sometimes), even in the 2nd IB year.

    in our school, after the first year methods teacher left and he was really good. the replacement was aweful, so the size of the class decreased by half. so we have about 8 people in hl, about 12 in methods, and over 30 in studies...

    perhaps the reason they didn't let you switch is because studies finished their internal assessment during the first year?

    It is possible, however, I think they have cheated you. What is your university course?
