My Extended Essay

I have uploaded my EE to Scribd. I got a B for it, so it wasn't perfect, but it did well enough that you might be able to benefit from looking at it. I did my EE in History.

What is Extended Essay???

- It is compulsory and makes up part of the 3 possible bonus points
- The essay is 4000 words, plus a 300 word abstract
- It is externally assessed
- You choose the subject and topic (even if you don't actually study the subject as part of your diploma)
- The IB suggests that you spend 40 hours working on it
- You will have a supervisor that teaches/ knows about that subject

In a nutshell, try to do well, because you can lose your diploma if your do extremely badly, and your score can be significantly increased by getting a good mark.
