With extended essays for 2nd year students having left the premises, minds are turning, or have turned, to the next batch!So, this may be a good time to take stock of the process and the pitfalls, especially given the fact that the theory of knowledge/extended essay matrix will change from May 2015, and that the extended essay is in review for teaching in 2016, with first assessment in 2018.
The point matrix is outlined in the "Diploma Points Matrix for the Extended Essay and TOK" grid in the IBO form.
You can still get your diploma if you get a "Mediocre" on one and an "Elementary" on another.
Extended essay preparation and assessment are high in the coverage wish list of participants in workshops and often lead to the most concern among new teachers to the IB.
Certainly, the process is relatively drawn out and the assessment is complex, but due diligence should prevent students losing unnecessary marks.
Since the May 2010 session, 28 points overall are required to be eligible for the diploma if a student attains an ‘E’ grade in either the extended essay or theory of knowledge.
However, the EE-TOK matrix suffered from an anomaly, in that students could be awarded an additional one point for an A E combination, despite the fact that an E was a failing condition for the diploma, if the student achieved between 24 to 27 marks.
Find out if there are competitions or scholarship opportunities in which you can enter your essay.
Why not kill two birds with one stone and head off to university with a scholarship?
If you don't win, at least you'll get feedback, something the IBO neglects to give.
Everyone wants to write a good Extended Essay, but just remember that it's really not as overwhelming as it sounds.
