  1. Hello, I'm currently in year 1 of IB and I'm contemplating whether I should drop Chemistry HL to Chemistry SL. Also, I would like to know whether or not I'm required to take it at HL if I want to study undergrad bio in Canada or the US. Reasons why I want to drop: - Bad grades 4s and 5s sometimes 3s - I'm only doing it to strengthen my application - The Chem SL teacher is better - I love English literature My current subjects are: Chem HL, Bio HL, Business HL, English Lit SL, Math SL, Arabic Ab inito If I drop to Chem SL: English A Lit HL, Bio HL, Business HL, Chemistry SL, Math SL, Arabic Ab inito I've been thinking about this for the past three weeks and I'd appreciate much-needed advice!!!! Thank you!
  2. HL: English A: Literature, Business & Management, Computer Science SL: French AB Initio, Math, Physics If you think about my subjects what does it look like I want to do after school?
  3. Hi guys! Recently I decided that Medicine isn't such a good fit for me and the best thing to study for me would be BM (I know it is a completely different subject, but it wasn't a sudden decision, it's reconsidered in every possible way and I'm pretty certain about it) . As I have previously chosen subjects for Medicine, now I've got a problem with choosing those suitable for BM. For now, I'm considering the following subjects: Grupa 1: Polish A SL Grupa 2: English B HL Grupa 3: Business Management HL (90%)/ Economics HL(10%) Grupa 4: Chemistry SL/HL Grupa 5: Mathematics SL/HL Grupa 6: Geography SL, Computer Science SL/HL, History SL, Economics SL My first problem: I've heard a lot of people saying that BM in IB isn't worth it and Economics is better. However, the BM's curriculum is way more interesting for me. Have anyone taken BM and could say something more about it? Second: I am certain about two HL - BM (or Economics, but it's not very likely that I took it) and English B. Now, I need to choose the third one and my options are: Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science. When it comes to Maths, I'm just afraid that my exam score won't be good enough to go to the good uni. I am not bad at it and my teacher says that I would be able to do it, but - like I said - I am afraid especially due to so many people suffering because of it. Chemistry - I love this subject and it would be nothing but a pleasure for me to do it on HL. However, it's not really connected to BM and I don't know if universities would like this choice. CS - I consider it as useful, but also very demanding. I could do this, but like in the math case, I know I'd have to work very hard (not necessarily being interested in the topic) to get a good score. Last (but not least) problem - the sixth subject. I'm good at all considered subjects - Geography SL, Computer Science SL History SL and Economics SL - but what will prove the most useful in the matter of BM? That's all. I will be veeeeeery grateful for your feedback, so if u could help me in any way, please do it ;p
  4. Are my subject selections alright If I wanna major in Social Work or Psychology in university? Im choosing my subjects tomorrow HL Econ, Psychology, Bahasa B (native language) SL Biology, English A, Math Studies omg yeah math studies is embarrassing but i'm really really bad at math :/ and is it dumb if i choose Econ HL alongside math studies? Sorry if i sound annoying im just really worried i wanna get a better ib score sigh
  5. 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!!
  6. Hey everyone! I will be doing IBDP next year, and I have chosen PPE as my future course in the university. However, I am not sure about my IB subjects. I have a list of my choices : Azerbaijani A (my first language) SL English B SL/HL Maths HL Biology or ESS SL (not sure about it because i dont need neither of them, i just want to get the easiest one) which one should I choose? Economics HL Global Politics or Geo or History HL/SL ( I am not sure about this one either because people recommend me each and every of them, I think global politics would me more useful but I’m not sure) which one would be more useful?
  7. Hi, I'm currently in pre-IB and I have to choose my IB courses for next year. I know for sure that I want these classes: - Spanish AB Initio - Math SL - Economics SL - English HL - Chem HL For my last subject, I'm not sure if I should choose Bio HL or Art HL. I want to study dietetics in university. I was first going to choose Bio HL but we had a talk about classes with our IB coordinator and he said not to choose classes based just on what you think you'll need for university. So now I'm confused on what to pick. I enjoy both bio and art. I plan to study at a Canadian university.
  8. Hey, could you look over my subject selections? I want to do cosmology and astrophysics in Uni. Physics HL Maths HL/Further if possible English HL Chemistry SL French AB Business Management SL
  9. Hello! I start grade 11 this fall, and i wish to study International Law in university. What subjects should I take? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hey all, Currently enrolled in the IB Program, I am still undecided on two subjects that I wish to pursue: engineering and medicine. Leaning more towards the medical field, I had chosen my courses mainly based on that decision; however, I am concerned about the amount of stress it might bring during my junior and senior year. My selected courses include: HL Math, HL English Lang. & Lit., HL Chem, HL Bio, SL Psych, and SL Mandarin Ab Initio My concerns include what subjects are required to enroll in a medical program in the United States or the United Kingdom (mainly for HL), and whether switching one of my HL sciences to SL Music would bring about any concerns, and if not, which HL science to pursue.
  11. I need some urgent guidance regarding my IB subject choices for next year!!! This is what I've entered; English Lit A HL Economics HL History HL Maths SL Environmental systems and societies SL Mandarin ab initio SL However, I still have the opportunity to make changes so I thought I'd ask for some thoughts on them before I finalise. First of all - do they seem optimal for law at Russel Group/Ivy Leauge unis? English Lit, Economics, Maths and Mandarin are more or less definite so I am left with two concerns; I am considering swapping out History HL to Global Politics HL. Mainly because Global Politics appeared very interesting but also as I reckon History will be much harder to get a good score in. I came to UK boarding school this year which is year 11/5th form so I am doing an accelerated GCSE course - meaning my subject choices for GCSE were limited and I couldn't do the full GCSE for History (I have history lessons for experience but am not sitting exams). On the other hand, though, I know History is well respected by unis and sure would benefit me if I'll study law. Help!!! History HL or Global Politics HL? Second concern - At first I didn't doubt choosing ESS for a second because I just wanted to get rid of the sciences but I have heard a lot recently, even from the teacher of ESS, that it is a soft subject. I got A*s in all my triple science mocks and am predicted A*s as well - so it is not that I would struggle with for example Biology; I just chose ESS purely because I don't find bio/chem/physics interesting. Is it really such a "soft subject" and does it even matter if I want to do law/international relations etc. at uni? if so should I consider biology instead?
  12. Hi! I would like to study Criminal Justice, Criminology or Forensic Science Technology in my later studies, do you have any suggestions on what subjects should I pick?? I'm thinking of English HL, Finnish HL, Math studies, Psychology either HL or SL, Chemistry or Biology SL and Economics or Visual Arts HL or SL (I really like arts so that's why) Are these okay? Would I get anywhere with these? Also which would be more convenient biology or chemistry? Thank you so so much to anyone who answers!!
  13. hey, (English is not my first language so excuse the poor grammar, but I'm sure most people would get what I'm saying here) So I think I am in trouble. I've tried for the past 5 months to solve and understand this issue. Let me tell you the whole story right from the beginning, so I enrolled into IB this year with only two GCSEs in my hand both of which I managed to screw up, D in business and B in math. Now I know I may seem stupid with those grades but I've never cared of school and studies till now and these past 5 months I've been completely reformed. I was forced to be in MATH STUDIES, but I knew I what I wanted to do in the future and that was to be an engineer. So I worked my ass off and got to HIGHER LEVEL MATH through self-studying their topics by myself and taking their monthly tests and ****ing proved the school I wasn't a donkey. After all that, I was happy I got in and satisfied with myself ( this could be an inspirational story to those who think they're dumb just cuz they did badly in one test), but my troubles didn't end there. After some surfing on uni applications for engineering, they all seem to require Math HL and PHYSICS HL!! Ok look I love physics I wish I could do HL but I'm just too far into the school year for them to accept me to join that class. I'm in physics SL btw so there might be a chance they'll accept me? I don't know tbh and its really bugging me. I looked at the difference between HL and SL physics and there is are 4 topics apart. Like srsly I don't get accepted due to not studying 4 chapters? Ok so I've heard of foundation year, but that's a total waste of my time for not doing 4 topics of physics! I'm however prepared for it if there is no option. Also this new school I'm in looks at my GCSE grades and uses them to place me in the right classes, like **** off, Math studies to Math Higher level. Anyways I came to this site for help from people and to see if anyone is in a similar situation as I am. So if u guys have any advice for me and stuff pls do say I really need to solve this issue quickly.
  14. Hi, I'm on the fence about a few of my IB courses. I want to major in Psychology and attend an Ivy League Law school after I graduate. I wanted to do History but our school, unfortunately, doesn't offer it. I'm currently in grade 10 Chemistry and have an A-plus; moreover, I'll be doing grade 10 Biology next semester. Apart from the fact that I like Biology, I believe that taking that course will make me appear to be a more well-rounded student who is good at both sciences and social sciences. I've never taken Psychology or Business classes before; however, I'm interested in them, especially Psychology. Option 1: HL: English, Psychology, Biology SL: French, Math, Business and Management Option 2: HL: English, Psychology, Business and Management SL: French, Math, Environmental Systems and Societies Option 3: HL: English, Psychology, Business and Management SL: French, Math, Biology
  15. I'm going to be switching to IB and I wanted to know which subjects I should take as SL and which as HL, I want to pursue Biotechnology in the future. English Spanish ab initio Economics Biology HL Chemistry Math SL Also I haven't switched yet, I am still in another board. So I have catch up, though I'm a completely stranger to most of the subjects. Any tips??
  16. Hey guys! I’m currently in grade 10 about to apply for IB. I aim to be a medical/law? student and these are the subjects I have chosen so far: English (A) - HL Mando (B) - HL Chem - HL Bio - SL (my school doesn’t allow 2 science HLs) Maths - HL Im unsure of what I should choose for my group 3 subject, my school only offers history in HL so I can’t take it. What would you recommend? Thanks
  17. Hi, I am 10th grade student currently in American British Academy school Oman. I have somewhat picked my DP subjects already but I wanted to ask you guys which ones are the hardest and easiest. Also I don't have any experience and prior knowledge with Geo. Will prior knowledge be needed to take HL? Is it difficult without prior Knowledge? How will I mostly be assessed? ( Projects, Tests, Presentations, All?) HL Geo HL Econ or Buissness HL Physics SL Math SL Eng Lang Lit SL French TOK
  18. Hey future ib colleagues, I’m the next victim of IB! Its that time in my life where I actually have to think about what I want to be in life. I HAVE NO IDEA. Teachers are commanding (I’m over exaggerating a bit) subject choices for IB. I chose subjects that interested me other than actually dying and trying to figure out what career I want. Here it is: Higher level: Chemistry Arabic Psychology Standard level: Math English Physics can people who took these topics give me advice? Also what career can I get out of these choices??? Help!!!!
  19. So I'm starting grade 11 in January and I'm starting to have really bad anxiety. I've seen seniors in my school do IB, and the amount that they study really scares me. I don't know if I'm making it out to be worse than it actually is, but I'm really scared and don't know what to do. My subjects are: HL theatre HL Language and Literature HL Social and Cultural Anthropology SL Biology SL Math Studies SL Ab-initio Mandarin Does anyone have any advice/idea about these subjects and how hard/easy they are? Anything I can do to prepare in advance? Thanks!
  20. Hi! I have a problem... I'm a junior and I just started IB in August and now its September and I am kind of regretting my decisions. I am currently taking: HL Math HL Chem HL Bio SL Korean SL ESS SL Lang & Lit Currently, I am getting all 6s for my SLs but My HL grades are nearly failing and I am not very much satisfied. I always sleep late (like 3 am - 2 hours of sleep most of the time) because of work (I know I just started IB) and I don't think I can keep up with this until next year. My mom said I should drop all my HLs to SLs and do IB certificate instead of Diploma. I told my friends about this and they freaked out and told me that I should just do Diploma. Honestly, I feel like it would be awesome if I drop my HLs to SLs because I absolutely hate Chem HL. I'm okay with Math and I love Bio tho...but because I have the 3 most rigorous subjects, I can't focus on my SLs and my Bio HL and so my grades are not good...and my health is deteriorating (getting sick every 3 weeks even if I take vitamins) What should I do? Btw the university I want to go to is Korea (SKY) but they don't have much information about the requirements for IB. And I think they care more about the grades...If anyone knows the requirements...of whether grades is much important than which subjects or program I take...please tell me... Thanks, I hope you help me with this before it's too late.

    Subject choice

    Hi! I'm a Polish student currently doing pre-dp. Recently I've started thinking about my subject selection. I'm thinking about studying medicine (still don't know if in Poland, where higher education is free or abroad - if you know anything about obtaining scholarships for medical schools in Europe and/or Australia after IB go ahead and tell me), so naturally I will be taking: Bio HL Chem HL Math SL (or should I do Math Studies if I'm less than good at normal math program?) English B HL (heard it's an easy subject and great to kinda balance out Chem and Bio HL) Polish SL But I have a problem with choosing my humanities subject. I want to go easy on myself and choose the easiest possible subject from this group (not a lot of (from worst to best) 1)writing, 2)reading or 3)memorizing), what would you choose from these: Geo SL (heard from graduate who is now studying at Oxford that this one is easy) Economy SL (same as before but what stops me is my hate from math. Is there a lot math here?) Psychology SL (heard it's not easy at all but it sounds interesting) History SL (the hardest but on the other hand i do like history) Global Politics Let me hear your thoughts!
  22. Hello again, I have already created a post about my subject choices to study law about a week ago, however I was wondering whether these following subject choices would also be alright. HL: English A Language and Literature, German A Language and Literature, History SL: Spanish B, Biology, Maths SL OR: HL: English A Language and Literature, History, Biology SL: Spanish B, Maths SL, German A Language and Literature This second option would only be for the unlikely event, in which I would want to study in Germany, so I really prefer the first option and it would be great if you could give some feedback on this FIRST option I have 3 languages in these choices because languages are one of my main strengths and also our school seems to get consistently good scores in Spanish B (in 7 years nobody got less than a 6 ). I am probably looking into studying International Law or Commercial Law. Thanks in Advance
  23. Hi guys! I would love to know what you think about my IB subject choices. I started the IB programme one month ago, so I still have same time to change my mind. Right now I am studying: English A, French B, Mathematics & Geography - HL Polish A, Biology - SL Could you please tell what you think about this set? What courses could I take at the university level? Personally I have thought about economics, finances, law or something connected with french language. I will be extremely grateful for your help Have a nice day! xxx
  24. Hello everyone, I'm trying to decide between two IB schools based on the subjects they offer and I wanted to ask for your opinion. The two possible subject combinations are: Finnish A HL English B HL, Swedish B SL Economics HL ESS SL Math SL and Finnish A SL English B HL Economics HL, Global Politics HL Biology SL Math SL I'd really like to study both Global Politics and ESS, but that isn't possible in Finland (although I could always try applying to schools in Sweden). I'm not all that interested in sciences which is why I would like to take ESS and I find Global Politics interesting. I've also heard that History is a good subject for law school, but I'm not particularly interested in it. What are your thoughts?
  25. Hi guys! So I just joined IBSurvival this morning, so relieved to find an IB community helping one another. I'm a Malaysian student finishing my final high school year in November, but as I'm planning to apply to universities in the U.S., I'm going to take the IB Diploma in Australia next year as my Malaysian high school qualification isn't internationally recognized. A bit about myself: I'm aspiring to be an actress, artist and/or a model, but I understand that it's really tough to make a living out of these jobs. So, my backup plan is to maybe become a journalist, social worker or archaeologist. I'm not entirely sure yet what I will major in in university, but I'm interested in studying Sociology, Journalism, Drama, Studio Art, Archaeology or Anthropology. My parents told me that if I'm going to study fine arts, I'd have to major in business too, though. Except I have 0 interest in business... I'll worry about that in the future Do you guys think you can help me decide which subjects I could take for the IB Diploma to prepare myself for the Uni courses I just mentioned? Currently, here's what I have in mind: 1. English Language and Literature HL 2. Spanish/French ab initio or Chinese B (I'm Chinese and I can speak Chinese, but I'm not the best at writing and reading) 3 & 4. Environmental Systems and Socieites 5. Mathematics SL 6. Visual Arts HL Additional subject: Theatre HL or if possible, Psychology HL or Social and Cultural Anthropology HL (??? Read below) I wanted to study Psychology, as it has some elements of Sociology in it, but I'm not interested in studying any other Science subject so I have to opt for Environmental Systems and Societies, which allows me to pick another subject from the other subject groups, which is why I picked Theatre. But I'd really love to study Psychology. Please tell me I'm wrong and that I can actually pick another subject from Group 3 for the additional subject. Also, will taking Theatre help me develop my acting skills more than just taking regular external classes? Thank you for reading everyone! Hope you have a great day
