Calling all chemistry students

Recommended Posts

Hi guy, I just wanted to know what chemistry people take as a humanities? Do you find it hard to have chemistry plus you humanities?

I take History and Philosophy as well as Chemistry. I'm more of a humanities student myself, but having to take a science Chemistry is my favourite, I see it a bit like a balance between Biology and Physics.

Never really liked any humanities subjects, history, economics, philosophy etc. But sadly you must choose one and history at standard level is quite manageable for me.

I find it difficult to understand your question but I assume you're asking if it's difficult to have chemistry if you're the type who's more into humanities?

chemistry could be difficult to understand but if you can memorise, it shouldn't be too bad. some concepts need more than memorising though. I think usually humanities people tend to choose biology over chemistry (that's just a generalisation so it's not 100% true) because in chem there's stoichiometry i.e., calculation so you might want to look into biology too.

Perhaps this isn't what you're asking, but I love the humanities (and social sciences) and I'm taking Chemistry. I enjoy Math so Chemistry isn't too difficult, it's just sometimes difficult for me to apply concepts because I feel like I'm just applying bits and fragments of information. Chemistry is a challenging course for me but I think if I had Biology, it would end up being too much memorizing since I have History and Psychology already.

Sorry guys, just realized I did a typo it was 'what' instead of 'that'. I take geography HL and find it hard as there is so much information to memorize. But I am aware that having history could be more challenging.

oh lol I misunderstood, sorry.

I'm taking Chem and Physics, plus Economics because my options for Group 3 are only Econ&Geo while Business is back to back with Chem. as I love Chem more than Business, I choose not to take Business and take Econ instead.

I find Econ fairly easy... in Chem I tend to understand the concepts and memorise a few things, and in Econ I tend to understand the concepts and memorise definitions&diagrams. the level of difficulty, Econ is easier than Chem.

what Group 3 subjects are offered at your school other than Geo?

Econ, History, Business, ITGS, Psychology.

I take Psychology as well as Chemistry, and to be honest I'm not finding that combination difficult. It's probably because those two are balanced out since Psy is SL and Chem is HL, and I'm very early into the course.
