5 Lies That You Have Probably Been Told About Your IB Physics IA

Episode #4

I know I'm old (42 - ancient right?) but I'm also quite geeky. I can while away hours on subreddits and discord servers reading random nonsense.

When it comes to nonsense in the IBO subreddits and discord servers - I often can't believe what I'm seeing! There are so many lies flying about about the IB Physics IA. It's like these forums are a breeding ground of misconceptions and the main goal is to make you think that the IB Physics Internal Assessment is a PhD dissertation that is worthy of a Nobel prize!

In particular, I've identified 5 lies that are repeatedly told and believed WORLDWIDE! I'll blow apart this nonsense and tell you the truth about the IB Physics IA to make is a much simpler, and even enjoyable, process.

Sound good?

In this podcast, I'll take 13 minutes of your days to highlight the five biggest misconceptions about the IB Physics IA and I believe I'll relieve you of the stress that accompanies this (honestly straightforward) task.
