I.A. words of advise on word count: this is what IB says,
"The internal assessment task will be one scientific investigation taking about 10 hours and the write-up should be about 6 to 12 pages long. Investigations exceeding this length will be penalized in the communication criterion as lacking in conciseness."

Avoid being redundant; stay on target - and avoid going off the reservation!
