    1. May 4th

    3. HL computer science, biology, geography and SL maths studies, English, French
    4. Computer science

    1. 4th of May
    :shot:
    English B HL and Economics SL
    2. I'm pretty confident, but still need LOADS of revision. However, if I decrease my level of procrastination , I think I can even get like 40-42 points

    3. HL: Mathematics, Physics, English B
    SL: Economics, French ab initio, Polish A
    4. Definitely Polish Literature is totally not my thing, I'm aiming at a 5
    5. I'd say English B and French ab initio are the easiest, I can get 7s with little or on revisions. But I'm mostly targeted at maths, as it requires lots of practice and I think I can get a high grade (6/7) in such an important subject if I go through all past papers
    6. Currently I'm at like 4, but in late April I think I'll be at 8-9 :| Realising how much I could've revised more. But we'll see

    Haha hey! Well honestly, in my geography class there are only 3 of us so classes are much more personal and interactive. Our teacher is amazing as well, and for many of the case studies you're only going to need the information for 4 mark questions, so you don't need to memorise every detail. The important thing about geography is remembering that everything is interconnected, and that whatever you're writing about has connections in at least like 3 other areas. Always bring everything together, and always look at either side of whatever the argument is. USE EXAMPLES.
    Are you in HL Biology? How do you remember everything I'm only good at paper 3 options.. I can't do the paper 1 and paper 2 section B at all..

    Hiii haha, yeah there's only 3 in my history which is good, there's 6 in my geography class. See my teacher is really helpful because she reuses case studies whenever she can and does loads of exam practice, it's just the essays that trip me up. Yeah I think the interconnections are what make it hard for me because my brain just turns to mush just thinking about everything haha. Yep! I think a lot of it you have to try to remember in a series of stages and just try to simplify everything, try not to overthink anything because that's when you'll struggle. Oh I find paper 3 options the hardest hahaha. For paper 1 what I do is if I'm really stuck I look at the options and the 2 that start the exact same way, one of them 2 answers are usually right. For paper 2 you've just got to go through each one and think carefully. When you choose one just do a quick mindmap/plan which really makes you think, if it's something like the Krebs cycle, quickly draw the diagram, it really does help.

    I'll message you after the bio and geo exams and we can complain together about them
    For geo, the essay is mainly looking for evaluation and analysis. Just take the simplest of ideas and make it sound complicated and bring up any conceivable impact of something that you can think of.
    For bio I just keep rewriting the whole syllabus.. I'm genuinely screwed
