This article is about advanced techniques, the polish that can raise your grades (to a high B or an A). Pointing out the weaknesses in your research shows that you know how to improve next time (which impresses us) and it shows that you’re taking an academic approach (you are able to be objective) rather than a self-conscious approach.
But if your foundation is off no amount of polishing is going to be enough. By now your Extended Essay contains the best sources that you could get your hands on. Weaker students, students that haven’t put in my effort into their work, won’t want to do this because they know there are tons of weaknesses in their research.
