    • IB is stressful, the stress will not go away. However, there are ways you can deal with it. Firstly, disregard what your teacher says. If she says stuff like that she isn't a teacher in my eyes. She's someone who is just standing in front of you, someone you got to push out of your way and proove wrong. Just stay organized, DONT procrastinate and try and finish you EE during 11th grade next year and perhaps even an IA or two. You will be fine. You will have stressful days that you won't enjoy and perhaps even become sad about, but it's all ok. I have those myself, I just go talk to my parents about it and maybe a friend or two and I get through it. The key thing is choosing subjects you like, and do your best. If you do your best no one has the right to get mad at you for the end result.   Good luck in IB!
    • I would like to point out IB is introducing Analysis/Approach (functions and calculus focused) and Applications/Interpretations (modelling and stats focused) courses to replace current studies, SL, HL and it will remove Further Math. I would probably suggest Analysis/Approach SL or Applications/Interpretations HL. Application/Interpretations SL is essentially Studies and is insufficient to prepare for pre-med, and at the other hand Analysis/Approach HL is entirely unnecessary. 
    • I'd agree with Jaysun, math sl is a safe bet.
    • It depends on what university you go to, but Bio HL is a must. Chem HL is also important but your school doesn't support it apparently 
    • Last I heard, UBC Sciences does not treat Math Studies as a valid math course, so you wouldn't even be considered for admission. I would assume McGill and UT to have similar, if not the same policies. Even if they don't, you're expected to take both calculus and statistics in the majors you mentioned, and doing math studies will put you behind many people, even those who didn't do IB (imho math studies is easier than the BC provincial curriculum). However, since you're not going into a math-intensive major, I would recommend Math SL for you. Many of my friends are in UBC Bio/Biochem, and they find some math to be challenging, but also found that Math SL suffice as a precursor. Hope that helps!
