    Can you send me a link please for the website as I can't seem to find it, but thanks for letting me know. I would rep you if I could for that but TSR doesn't allow me just yet

    Edit: In terms of preparation, I am going to go through all the content in c1-c3, fp1 and s1 as well as some bits in c4 and fp2, and if I have time then d1 (might just skip this and hope they don't ask anything related to d1) and m1 (although this won't take much time as I have nearly done m2 anyways),

    Edit2: I found the link, thanks for your help!
    I think you should just revise AS and what you've learnt up until now. There's no point learning C4 stuff if you haven't learnt it. Just say to the interviewer you haven't learnt it yet. Also, I can't see what they could ask from D1 or FP1 that is vaguely related to economics...

    Quick question guys. Is there any unis outside of London, bar Oxbridge and Warwick, that give you a significantly greater chance than unis in London a foot in IB?

    It's hard to say really, I would say Bath and Bristol are pretty highly regarded. But IB is incredibly difficult to get into even if you go to the likes of LSE or Oxbridge! It would probably all depend on if you can get an internship during summer and if you get a first as well

    We have started C4 and FP2 at school and plus knowing the content could just help me, plus I can't tell the interviewer if I havent learnt a particular topic as its a written test which I presume will be taken in an exam hall somewhere in Cambridge and I do think that FP1 vaguely related to economics but you are right that D1 (and also M1) are not related at all, still I will be doing the game theory chapter in D2 just to give me a basic understanding of game theory (plus I am reading a book on game theory atm too).

    I did mine on how the US government could pay off its debts, would have easily got an A star had I not messed up my presentation (was only given a 12 hour notice about it), what about you?

    Did mine on economic history, involving Economic policies that caused the fairly recent economic revolution in China I was able to include a lot of modern discussion points such as Ghost cities which i found very interesting!

    A mate of mine is also doing an economics epq on the sustainability of the flash memory market (dear god i feel sorry for the moderator :yucky:)

    Nice, my grandfather was the honorary state economist of Armenia (my home country) and specialised in the analysis of impacts of science on the Soviet Union, so I was inspired to write my dissertation on impacts of scientific advancement on economies precisely. So interesting incorporating biochemistry and physics into it which I love.

    I'd love to read you're mate's EPQ. I've generally found the more unique it is, the better it is. And you can't get much more unique than the flash memory market.

    Damn your one is actually quite good, plus you have an actual basis of interest in it, I just did mine because I actually wanted to find out more about the US and the messed up state its currently in so I thought why not do an epq with it xD,

    Hehe i had a brief flick through and i was amazed.... at the perseverance since his dissertation is 35 pages long :cry2:
    I must say there is A LOT of pie & bar charts >.< Even some internal components diagrams to show how they work (Even though i still dont understand it!)

    I think the assessor even mentioned to him how it was very difficult to mark as he got so bored while proof reading it :sad:
    Since talking to him, i'm not even sure if he enjoyed the experience of it - but he was low on ideas at the time ! :h:

    I wanted to do an EPQ. But the coordinator told me last year that because I had 5 subjects, it wasn't possible to put time for learning about research methods into my timetable.
