Subject combination

Recommended Posts

Hi eveybody! :D

In the future, I would like to study physics and astronomy in university. Does my subject combination look balanced/manageable?

A English HL

A Finnish SL

Mathematics HL

Physics HL

Biology SL

Psychology SL

Thank you in advance! :)

The fact that you're taking two language As, Maths HL and two sciences makes your subject combination very strong, with a nice balance of difficulty and flexibility across a wide range of areas -- also you'll get to get a bilingual diploma thanks to taking a language A other than English!

Overall, it looks good. I'd only suggest switching out Biology for Chemistry/Computer Science/ITGS, or even Astronomy if your school offers it (super rare though) as Biology won't seem to help a bit for where you want to aspire to.

I agree with the above poster that it looks like a good subject combination for physics/astronomy! Though I'm not too sure in terms of how manageable it is. It honestly depends on the workload you think you can handle. I know a lot of people who find Maths HL or Physics HL particularly challenging, but if you like the subject and you're prepared to work, you'll definitely be fine!

Sounds like the combination one must have for that type of course. Make sure you know what you're going into, and then work your hardest. 


Best of luck
