The Global Politics Extension Task (ET) Oral Presentation Structure

HL Global Politics students are required to do two oral presentations are (in total) worth 20% of your final mark in the course.  (10% for ET1 and 10% for ET2)

How to Structure a Business Management Extended Essay

 

Here is a step-by-step structure you can follow if you’re doing your Extended Essay in Business Management.
