What is an IA, EE or TOK?

IA is an individual research project in all IB subjects and it is compulsory for all students. The nature of IA depends on the specific IB subject. In the case of languages, it is an oral work whereas it is an investigation in Mathematics. IB students are free to pursue their personal interests in choosing the research topic and throughout the IA, they need to demonstrate the application of their skills and knowledge from the subject. In the case of IB Mathematics, IA will result into a research report of 2000 words.

The Extended Essay is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-words paper. It is one of the three core requirements of IB Diploma program and mandatory for all IB students. It prepares students for practical undergraduate research at university and students can choose topic of their personal interest in one of the six IB subjects to complete the requirement. Throughout this research process, students develop skills in formulating a research question, exploring possible solutions, communicating ideas and developing arguments.

Theory of Knowledge in a mini-philosophy course designed for IB students to question the nature of knowledge, reflect on how they know what they claim to know and produce an essay of up to 1600 words. It is one of the three core requirements of IB Diploma program and mandatory for all IB students. TOK Essay offers students opportunity to be aware of themselves as thinkers, reflect critically on various ways of acquiring knowledge, understand cultural aspects of knowledge and recognize the need to act responsibly in an increasingly interconnected but uncertain world.

What to expect during IA/EE/TOK Consultation with us?

We understand that the IA, EE, and TOK essays are not an easy nut to crack, requiring detailed exploration of the research topic with little specific guidance or direction from school teachers. It is not uncommon for a student to find themselves lost midway through their exploration and struggle to change their topic. Don’t be that student. Sign up for consultation with our tutors.

  • Assistance in choosing the most suitable idea from a myriad of ideas, which will not only help you get a high mark but also be the perfect match for your area of interest.
  • Laying out of a clear direction and clear instructions on the sequence of tasks you will need to do to ensure you meet all the assessment criteria.
  • Help with the structure of your essay according to the general requirements of the IB syllabus as well as the specific requirements from your school.
  • In-depth review of your school teacher’s comments in response to your first draft and detailed explanations of how to address them all to improve your mark significantly in the final draft.
  • Proofreading of the report to ensure it is free from any linguistic or factual errors that could potentially cost you valuable marks.
