Subject Choice

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I'm currently deciding which subjects to take for IB. I'm hoping to study Psychology at university and I'm unsure whether to take HL Business, Economics or Global Politics, alongside a definite HL English and Psychology. I was also wondering whether taking maths studies will put me back in any way when applying to universities!

Thank you in advance!

If you're sure about psychology, then there's no need for anything higher than maths studies, however I suggest looking at the requirements of the particular university to which you wish to apply . Any of the 3 options you gave are fine, but some universities do not prefer business as it is seen as a 'soft' course. I know a lot of people who take the English, Psychology, Economics option, but Global Politics seems as interesting. I suggest taking what you personally are most interested in.


Hope this helped :)
