    The Comparative Study
    Hi Susan, the specification is differing cultural contexts, which can be cultural or temporal, as long as context is addressed. i.e. They may all be contemporary if from different cultures.

    The Exhibition
    Hi Heather, What are your thoughts on students making videos? Is this allowed by the IB? If so how would we submit it to the IB? I am afraid the files may be too large.

    CS Assessment Criteria
    Hi Susan, they can scan hand made pages if they prefer- VERY legible and well laid out.. I have seen a few successful "handmade" CSs. Another option is to mix hand made and digital pages.

    you need to verify that with your school- it will be for all subject exams, not just art.
