Bio SL or Chem SL

Recommended Posts

Chem HL is considered to be the 2nd hardest IB class. HL Bio is not offen considered to be a super difficult IB course  

With that in mind, I feel it's safe to say SL Chem is harder than SL Bio. 

But it really comes down to what you personally enjoy more/understand better.

Biology SL will be more memorising, Chemistry is more logic and understanding concepts. In my case, I would have gone mental in Biology, because I have a terrible memory, but I enjoyed Chemistry, because if you understood some concept, things just fell into place. 

But, as it was said, it's really down to personal preference.

Personally if you're planning to study some other field other than science in Uni, I'd suggest taking either Bio/Physics SL; it depends on your preferences but if Chemistry is your only science subject, it's hard to get the motivation to put a lot of time and effort into it.
