As an experienced TOK teacher and IB examiner for prescribed title papers, I am well-positioned to provide useful advice for IB students on how to write an excellent externally assessed paper. Having read and scored hundreds of these papers over the past 6 years, I know what works and what doesn't.
This document represents a distillation of my guidelines and advice to my own IB students. It is addressed to the IB student and may be used as both an introduction to the requirements of the paper as well as a final checklist before submission of papers to the TOK teacher, and later to the IBO.
It has been revised to reflect the new syllabus, effective in 2015.
