Hi everyone, We have to make our choices for the Diploma by Monday ideally although definitely by Friday. I am trying to get some advice on my subjects and would really appreciate your views/thoughts: Background: I am really excited by doing Medicine as a career. However, I know that I a bit (not overly!), but a bit squeamish at the sight of blood. Because of this I am unable to back myself 100% to say that I will be able to do. People I have talked to say that everyone is a bit uncomfortable at first and so it will be fine but still wanted some thoughts from other people. Because I'm unsure about medicine the other thing in my mind if finance. Secondly, the IB choices that I am making are two fold: 1) I want to do things that interest me + are required for a potential degree. 2) I want a subject that is easy to get a 7 in if I'm stuck between 2 of equal weighting. OK, so currently I have made the following choices: HL: Maths (Analysis), Chemistry SL: English For my remaining HL I am debating between Biology and Physics; as I say, I am stuck whether I will do Medicine. Taking Physics will still allow me to take Medicine but at a limited range of universities. (Oxbridge but not any London ones). In terms of interest, on one day I think I'll enjoy Biology more and on another I feel I'll enjoy Physics more. I love problem solving but am also very good at memorising stuff. For my remaining two SL subjects: It's greek vs French. (Ancient) greek seems to be very easy, French will be more useful later on, but French I can learn later on? Finally: Humanity SL: Econ vs Philosophy - no idea between the two. As I say I would really really be so grateful for all the advice I get! Best wishes, Rohan
Hey, everyone, I'm a bit new to the forum so sorry if the post might be a bit complicated/unclear. I have a question supposed to get simple and nice/easy however it gets complicated sadly, about my IB choices... So first of all, I think I'm a really good student this year (I like to think), so my grades are decent (mostly As). The thing is, I'm really not sure of what I would like to do in the future, and this is causing problems in terms of choices for my IB subjects. The topics in which I am the most interested in general (after high school, as a potential degree or something) would be the following: Psychology, Business Management, Biology, Economics, Engineering. For the moment, in terms of my choices for the IB, I still have 9 subject choices open and need to cut down the options to 6!! Here are my options still left/which I think I'll take: French A Lang. & Lit SL English A Lit. SL Physics/Chemistry/Biology HL Economics/Psych/Business HL Mathematics HL Taking an extra subject (probs HL), no arts, so it would be an extra from the choices above. My school told me they would authorize me to take 4 HLs if needed at the beginning of the school year and then drop one if I want to, or not, depending on how I would feel about it. Sorry for the post being so long, but thanks for the help!! thanks for answering!! and thanks for reading!!
I am in MYP5 and I am undecided about my choices. I want to either study in Portugal or the UK. I want to either to study finance or computer science. The subjects I want to take are: Economics HL Math HL Spanish B HL Portuguese Lit. SL Eng. Lang and Lit. SL Physics SL I am forced to do Portuguese and English. One has to be Lang. and Lit. and the other has to be Lit.. My first language is portuguese, and I do much better in portuguese than in english. Which one is harder though? Lang. and Lit or just Lit.? Do universities prefer one over the other? Is there a problem with taking three languages, or should i change spanish to something like History SL, or another science? Please answer honestly: Do you think that these choices are good for someone pursuing a degree in either computer science or finance?
Hi, I'm currently finalizing my IB choices for the coming two years, and am considering ITGS as one of my HL's. However after speaking to my counsellor, she mentioned something about how Ivy League's and other top universities aren't too keen on that nor Environmental Systems Studies SL as a science. Is this correct? As the title suggests, I'm quite curious on what the top/competitive universities' opinions are on ITGS and ESS for that matter. Any feedback would be amazingly helpful! Thanks
