  1. I am currently in year 1 and am a bit worried if taking math applications and interpretations SL will harm my chances of getting into a decent college in the US. My HLs include bio and chemistry (also economics) because I am interested in a major relating to biology or biochemistry. I know that in certain European countries they don't accept math AI SL, but I thought that maybe in the US since they're pretty holistic they wouldn't mind as much, but now that I think about it, because I am interested in the STEM field, choosing a course that is equivalent to the past math studies might not look so good. I was thinking that maybe I can compensate by getting good marks on the SATs since my maths isn't a weak area of mine and I was placed in the advanced class last year so if I score high then it will indicate I am a strong maths student, but I don't know if this would still apply. While I am not aiming for Ivy leagues, I am still looking into quite competitive colleges in the US (acceptance rate 15-40%) so I just wanted to know if whether switching to HL would be a better option. However, I'm scared whether I can keep up with the workload with two HL sciences and HL math. Is it better to change?
  2. I am currently going into my junior year and starting the IB soon, but from my understanding the IB has made changes to the assessments and there will no longer be the IOC and IOP but a different kind of oral assessment. What are the differences between the current oral component and the new oral component? Will the texts be unseen? If you are aware, please give a detailed explanation! Thank you
