I will be starting the IB this fall. I realized that most UNIs don't accept math studies for a lot of career paths. I would love to persue law in the future, which math studies for a majority of universities allows. However I'm also interested in studying Econ and/or business, therefor I will need math at SL. I've decided to go with math SL, although math is not my strongest subject. I realized I will need to dedicate a lot of time to maths. I finished with a 6.4/10 in Dutch math A, math SL is basically Dutch math A with the basics of Dutch math B ( a harder and more abstract version of SL math). With that being said, my math is not that strong. I don't suck, however I don't invest enough time. I tend to cram the whole semester(8 weeks), 2 weeks before the exams. I want to keep the rest of my subjects as easy as possible, so I can dedicate as much time as possible to math.
Moving on to my actual Point:
I finished the 10th grade with a 10/10 for History in the Dutch system, a pretty hard course. I have strong English skills and will take Econ as a HL (For sure) alongside History HL or Geography HL. I finished with a 8/10 in the 9th grade for geography and loved the subject. I've heard that history in the IB is a pretty hard course (My school has really strong IB History teachers), however geography is known to be relatively easy in IB. My question is: Wich subject is more beneficial to take, if I want to keep my score high (37+) and have as much time as possible to dedicate to math SL, since I'm weak in that area?
English Lang&lit: HL
French ab initio: SL
Pros and cons about HIstory and Geography HL are highly apreciated.
P.S I love both subjects 😌
