Extended Essay

Here is a link to the school EE edublog.


It is required that students:

  • choose a topic that fits into one of the subjects on the approved extended essay list (in the Handbook of procedures for the Diploma Programme)
  • observe the regulations relating to the extended essay
  • meet deadlines
  • acknowledge all sources of information and ideas in an approved academic manner.

It is strongly recommended that students:

  • start work early
  • think very carefully about the research question for their essay
  • plan how, when and where they will find material for their essay
  • plan a schedule for both researching and writing the essay, including extra time for delays and unforeseen problems
  • record sources as their research progresses (rather than trying to reconstruct a list at the end)
  • have a clear structure for the essay itself before beginning to write
  • check and proofread the final version carefully
  • make sure that all basic requirements are met (for example, all students should get full marks for the abstract).
