IB results and all that matters

Darn, I wish I could’ve posted this earlier. That server disruption is really a bummer. I would spare you all the drama and suspense of the night when the IB results for the November 2008 session are made available (go to Jon Mah’s for that). Instead, I would just go in straight away. I got […]

From English A1 to Malay A1

Everybody has been talking about the decision the June 07 batch took in changing subject from English A1 to Malay A1, but so far there’s only one post written about it, by Anis Azmani. Any exchange of opinion between the two batches is therefore rather limited, and I think this should not be the case. […]

IB Business & Management (SL) Notes

I compiled these notes on the Business & Management (Standard Level) subject for the International Baccalaureate diploma programme for easy revision. The content of these notes are retrieved from Wikirevise (see note at the end of this article). I made it into a PDF file so that you can print it out (preferably into booklet […]

Particle Physics summarised chart

Mr Masukor gave me this nicely done summarised chart of the Standard Model of Fundamental Particles and Interactions that is useful for revising the Particle Physics chapter.

You know you’re in IB when… Relatives that have been dead for years come visit you and suggest that you get some sleep. You say the same sentence over and over again, not realizing you’ve said it before. You say the […]

IB CAS/SFS Form as Word Document

To make things just a little bit easier for all of us who are taking International Baccalaureate, I have converted the CAS/AEF form and CAS/SFS form from PDF into a word document, so that you can straight away type and print them out instead of having to write using black pen. They are in two […]

Maths HL Options: Sequences & Series Toolbox

Everybody who does the Sequences & Series option for IB Maths HL knows how painful it is to remember all those different proving techniques and methods and theorems. To make it easier for me to choose which technique and to familiarise myself with those techniques while doing the exercises, I made this one-page A4-sized notes […]

The art and skill of self discovery

No, this is not the search-your-own-soul kind of self discovery. This is about the more literal meaning of self discovery, which is discovering things on your own (that really does translate to self discovery, right?). I’d say that this is one of the most important skills that can bring you far in life. It makes […]
