So I'm writing my Extended Essay, entitled "Language in Lolita - Nabokov's way of seducing the reader". My problem is a matter of style really, while developing the body of my EE, I've been using sub-headings (is that what they are called?), and I was wondering if I could keep them or if I should get rid of them when handing it in. My sub-headings are "the problem of perception", "butterfly symmetry" and "satire is a lesson, parody is a game". They all deal with language, but are slightly differently angled, and I'm having problems making smooth transitions between the three lines of argument (having sub-headings would solve that problem).
Anyone have any experience with this?

Anyone have the offical IBO guidelines then? Or know where I can get them? I tried the IBO site, but for some reason you need a password...

I'm pretty sure sub-headings are acceptable. I mean, they encourage writing in chapter format so it would seem strange of them to have any gripes with sub-headings. If you REALLY REALLY need to know I'll dig out my copy of the guidelines, it's just the fact that its presently residing in an unknown location, somewhere in the abyss that is my room that is putting me off at the moment .

It's just that one doesn't usually write literary essays with sub-headings... And IBO has so many formal criterias... I found the guidelines on the web (thanks anyways), but it doesn't say specifically. It says "only use sub-headings where appropriate" - so I was guesiing English might be one of the inappropriate subjects to do it in...
