  1. Hi there

    My paper 1 exam is tomorrow *YIKES* and I thought it would be rather easy to find a sample paper/past paper to practise with, but so far I've only found a paper 2 sample (which I'll practise with as well) provided by the IB itself.

    Does anybody know where I can find a sample of paper 1, so I can print it and practise with it???

    Good luck with your exams! x

  3. I have that exam as well tomorrow can't believe it's actually happening! :O
    Here are some resources I found, as well as a sample paper 1 and 2. These were provided by IB, and we used them in our mocks. Some have the markscheme as well, which is super useful. You doing HL as well?

    The reason it's so difficult to find past papers is because this is a new syllabus, so they haven't actually made many samples and there are no past exams to base ourselves off.. :/
    Best of luck to you too!!

When it came to the essays writing became a little trickier because I had to understand what it was I needed to write about and the style in which I need to write it in. There are nine essay writing methods which I learned while attending this course: exemplification, compare/contrast, cause and effect, proposal, narration, process, division/classification, definition, and argument. The only problems I encountered when trying to write the essays that were assigned to me by the instructor was finding suitable subject matter to write about. Once I found my topics for my essay, everything else became easier. I would first produce a rough draft and then the students, the instructor, and myself would go over them in class and decided if what I was writing was in its best form. Most of my rough drafts needed improvement, but if it didn’t it wouldn’t be a rough draft, so it was understood. My final drafts were very satisfying for me as well as the grades I received on them.
