I don't know if I can do research based on just the mathematical analysis and interpretations of a physics concept for my EE, rather than conducting any sort of experiment or data processing. My teacher says the IB won't expect a theoretical/pure mathematical paper. Is that true?
Heinrich posted a topic in PhysicsGood day guys! Is anyone here familiar with European universities? I am currently at the end of IB1 and I was wondering if most universities accept Physics SL as one of my courses. I am currently taking Physics HL but I am in great doubt that I can finish the course successfully as my Physics teacher is highly unfamiliar with the IB and can't teach. We covered 3/4 of the syllabus but none of the topics in great depth. I tried attempting past papers and found it extremely difficult (this includes the rest of the class) and most of us couldn't score past 30%. I am on the other hand taking Math HL with a predicted grade of a 5 which makes me wonder if Math HL (5) and Physics SL (5-6(with a lot of extra work)) would be good enough for Engineering for most European universities. I will replace Physcis HL with Psychology HL as there are no additional HL topics discussed yet. Additionally, the only math-related subjects I take besides Mathematics HL would be Economics (SL) and Physics. Will the lack of Math related subjects at HL decrease the chances for me getting into any university in Europe as well? And is it recommended to drop down to Physics HL for a higher total IB points at the end of the IBDP without reducing my chances of getting into European universities? Thank you so much guys!
