Hey, I'm a grade Grade 11 IB student. I just started this August and I'm still trying to keep my head above the water, with merely assignments and homework for now. :eek: But I want to get a head start on planning on my extended essay, so that I don't have to worry later about choosing a topic.

I am doing HL Biology, Chemistry and English literature, and SL History, Spanish and Math. Therefore, I was thinking of doing my extended essay on either Biology or English. I want to pursue a career in veterinary medicine and am hence leaning towards Biology, but many advise for students not to do so as it is graded more harshly and it is difficult to come up with an experiment which has not been done before.

Ideas? Any are much appreciated! These may be pertaining to Biology (specifically zoology or relating to animals) or English literature. Thank You for taking the time to read this!

I thin English would be easier, it literally could be an analysis of a text you find interesting

Thanks for replying! Yea, I was thinking the same thing. But I was wondering wheather I should focus on biology, specifically zoology because that is what I want to major in. But I presume no university really looks at your extended essay.

Hi, I'm not sure if this is still relevant or not but if you want to pursue zoology you should definitely do your EE in Biology because it's subject related, it'll make you look stronger as an applicant. Doing an EE in Bio will also give you something to talk about in your personal statement as well as any interviews that you may have. My school told us that, if we can, we should do our EE on a subject related to the course we want to take.

If you're looking to apply to the UK (which I'm assuming) then definitely try and write your EE on a subject that relates to the one you want to finally pursue at uni. Seeing as you want to do VetMed, I'd write it in Biology. However, keep in mind that a good EE requires a lot of passion, hard work & lots of long hours. Are you willing to sacrifice a lot of your free time (and a lot of your sanity) for biology? If so, go ahead

I hope to study Medicine and I'm writing mine in Chemistry x
