The following are scripts for various Paper II questions. Since students only choose one question to answer, rather than providing the full exam paper, in this section there will only be the exam question.
In addition, all of the marks will be awarded as if for an SL paper - so, only one essay will be presented at a time. I feel that this gives you the best understanding of the quality of the single essay, even though HL candidates markbands are different because they are being asked to write two essays in two hours.
I am using my own students' work with their permission. The examples are from in-class essays done within the allotted time of one hour.
