Hello Everyone! Could those who have chosen Economics HL give me a true, honest opinion on the subject. These are my current Subjects Maths HL (Will drop to SL) English HL Economics HL Latin SL Music HL Chem HL Will drop to 3 HL and SL's end of this year. I am currently scoring 7 in all exams. Could you please tell me how difficult is ecos HL? Is it a subject where the 'HL' lies in the actual amount of theory work or is it a 'HL' because the actual final exam papers are legit difficult like Maths HL. If a ****load of effort and work is put into ecos HL, will it secure a 7? For example, maths HL is theory heavy AND the final exam is very difficult. Therefore, regardless of the amount of time poured into the subject, the final exam would still be difficult as no matter how well u know the theory, the difficulty lies in the level of questions in the final paper. So it is a theory heavy and exam-difficult subject. On the other hand, Chem HL is very theory heavy however, the final exam is not AS difficult so it becomes a manageable subject. So is the final Economics HL Exam (s) extremely difficult like maths Hl where even if u know the theory, the question is really demanding or is it a 'HL' in that there is a ****load of work but the final exam questions are not easy but are manageable? Thanks alot for you input! James
I'm about to go into my senior year in IB. I've been looking at some colleges I want to go to, and a lot of them say that I have to get 5's on my higher level exams in order to get any credit. Well that freaked me out! How hard would you guys say it is to get 5's. I haven't gotten my standard level scores back yet, so I can't really judge the difficulty based on experience. Thanks! In case this helps, here are my higher level courses: Spanish Literature 20th Century History TOK (is there even an exam for this?)
