This year, IB students from across the state came together virtually to present their Extended Essay and Reflective Projects. In order to inspire incoming Diploma Programme/Career-related Programme students and showcase exemplary work, the presenters will be featured on this page. Please limit your use of these exemplars as strictly for reference: plagiarism is strongly discouraged.
The extended essay is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper. It is intended to promote academic research and writing skills, providing students with an opportunity to engage in personal research in a topic of their own choice, under the guidance of a supervisor. This leads to a major piece of formally presented, structured writing, in which ideas and findings are communicated in a reasoned and coherent manner, appropriate to the subject chosen.

The IBCP Reflective Project is an in-depth body of work produced over an extended period and submitted in year 2 of the career-related programme. Through the Reflective Project, students identify, analyze, discuss and evaluate an ethical dilemma associated with an issue from their career-related studies. This work encourages students to engage in personal inquiry, intellectual discovery, creativity, action and reflection, and to develop strong thinking, research and communication skills.
