What is your opinion on my chosen courses? Any problems I might run into? How hard will it turn out to be? Please comment, all opinions are wanted and welcomed.

Math HL and Physics HL? Well that's going to be tough. But if you can handle the workload...then go for it!

It honestly looks pretty standard to me. If you find 4 HLs to hard, especially with HL maths in there, you can always drop one, but as on of the HLs is a language you will probably be ok.

Just out of curiosity, what are you looking to study after IB?

how good, and interested, are you in Japanese? Only take it at HL (as your fourth HL) if you are really really competent. It depends on what you are planning to do after high school as well. If you aren't an english or essay person, then maybe History isn't the best choice? It's hard and takes a lot of time, but it's worth it for many people because they love history. Does your school offer economics? Assuming, based on your wanting to do Math HL, that you are good at maths, economics would be a good subject for you. But just do what you enjoy, it makes studying (and good grades) that much easier!

History is actually what all students have to take at my school. Neither geography nor economics are available, and psychology and philosophy can only be taken as sixth subjects. I am planning on studying psychology and biology at college. Hopefully this will lead to some sort of career in psychobiology, animal psychology, or neuroscience? Honestly, I'm not quite sure yet.

And I am one of the top students in Japanese right now. The only problem is that my school had only offered Japanese an initio in the past. I'm thinking they'll probably offer sl now, since the feeder middle school recently starting teaching Japanese. However, I'm not sure if they are qualified to teach HL. Don't you need seven prior years of study?

I am actually quite good at writing essays an English. I am just not interested in it as much as science.

I am planning on taking physics because I am in chemistry right now and will be taking AP Biology next year. I want to take all three sciences throughout high school, and this is the science track at my school anyway. I don't really have a choice one way or another
