It's been a few years since I've graduated (Nov'11), and I do not intend on updating this blog. I am also unable to answer any IB related questions as I'm not familiar with the new curriculum changes and requirements. However, I will not delete this blog, as there is some useful information on here to help students.

To anyone doing the IB now, my advice is to try your best, but don't feel like your whole life/success depends on your final score. And getting a sufficient amount of sleep is very important!

For the folk out there who do ITGS, here's a useful link:


The site is run by an IB teacher who is also an author of a textbook for ITGS.

Thanks to Tomas for sharing this link.

April 2012 update + another awesome IB site!

Hi everyone,

I hope every one is doing well with their studies. To those who finished in November 2011, congratulations! Regardless if you got the diploma or not, two years of such a programme is something. To those who are about to sit their exams in May 2012, good luck! Finally, for those who have just started the IB and/or have some time to finish it: don't procrastinate guys, LOL.

Since I've finished the IB, most likely I will not be adding new content to this blog. However, this is not a hard and fast rule, so if something specific is requested or if links and such are submitted to me (either via email or in the comments), then I'll post them onto this blog. Also, if I come across something that'd be useful for IB, I'll post that up as well.

I'm still willing to help anyone out with any questions they have. Please do note that any information I do give out will be based on the syllabus I completed during 2010/2011.

On another note, Jocelyn, another Aussie IB graduate, has her own IB blog full of advice, tips, notes, inspiration and even quotes! Visit her blog HERE and see her notes HERE.

I've been MLIA for a long time. It's your fault IB, not me. Anyways, here is a nice little sneakity-sneaky trick for some IB diploma students who might not be aware of its existence:

/zomg/ lolwut/ Hurr, wossat?/ Oh that old thang?/

As far as I'm aware, there are QBs available for Maths and group four sciences. Only a few are available for the humanities and group two languages. They're extremely useful as you can select questions by paper (eg. 1, 2 or 3), topic and level (SL or HL). Marking schemes (answers!) are included and some times an examiner's report (not useful, but interesting). Only downside is that the one's I've come across are for the old syllabus. But they're still pretty awesome.

You can get your candidate-y hands on these through your teachers (which is unlikely since many use them to compile tests) or download them as torrents.

If anyone actually has the latest questionbanks or knows where they are (hi there fellow IB candidate), me want, please&thankyou. We all want, please&thankyou :)

(leave the torrent link in a comment so that others can also download)

ALSO... For help in internal assessments, it's a good idea to search for teacher IB *insert subject*teacher support material. A result isn't always guaranteed but I know a chemistry, biology and physics one is available. You can view moderator assessed IAs with comments, which can help give a sense of what you're required to do if you're still unsure.

beeteedoubleyou (btw. ha!) for those who can't find a certain paper or marking scheme, search it as a torrent if you already haven't. Or leave a comment with your email. I can't promise to answer ASAP or have the paper you're looking for (especially anything May 2010 onwards) but something's better than nothing, riiiiiight?

Now let's continue to procrastinate. Woo!

An Update

No, the blogger of this blog hasn't disappeared, nor has she run out of things to say. I know there's been a lack of posts, but hey, staying on top of coursework is more important, right? I've started IB2 and the homework is a hell load of tasks to complete every single night.

BTW, congratulations to all the November 2010 graduates! And to those currently in IB: hang on, the effort is worth it (as I hear from previous students)!

Anyways, here are some Harry Potter themed .gifs!
