I have to choose a subject and topic for my Extended Essay. I was thinking of doing it in biology or psychology. But I’m mostly doing it in psychology because I think there are a lot to write and expand and its not a bad subject while biology is more based on facts and terminology.

Which subject do you recommend and can you tell me your experience if you’re in whether one of these subjects.

I also need some possible topics please.

Is your school equipped to handle an extended essay on a natural science (biology)? Because if they don’t have the right equipment that you need then don’t go for it. Psychology would be a better option as it’s a lot more interesting in my opinion. But it depends on you. Try creating a mind map for both subjects and see which one you could come up with more ideas for. Find a topic that interests you most and go for that.

I’ve just noticed you take psych sl and bio hl. It’s recommended to do you EE in a hl subject because you have a lot more knowledge on the subject

I was really thinking biology, because firstly I take it in hl and my teacher is great but many people say the a science EE is really hard and tough to get a high grade so I changed my mind a bit since I have no topic in mind now. But for psychology I think its more interesting but still I have no clue what to do. But I feel that I am interested in memory and these stuff

I’d recommend talking to the teachers as well since you will spend quite a lot of time with the supervisor. In the new psychology syllabus there isn’t much the SL students aren’t taught, just one unit per one section of the core, so writing a psychology EE altho you have SL wouldn’t be that difficult. You might have to look at the different research methods which is HL only for assessing your studies, but that isn’t much extra work.
