PreDP choosing subjects

Hey, Y'all. I'm currently in the Predp programme in Sweden and soon I'll have to choose the subjects I want to take for IB1.

I'm thinking of becoming a doctor and I would like to study abroad hopefully the UK or the US.

I thought of picking HL bio HL chem and HL English and SL Swedish SL Math and SL Psychology 

Could anyone recommend me something or give me some advice about my picks

You cannot take 3 sciences unless you're only doing IB certificate. You must take a humanity course.

I just changed it to psychology SL. I was already interested in it but I thought that 3 sciences would be better. I'd rather do the real diploma since its more recognized by universities. 

I want to get into medicine outside of Sweden, I wonder if anyone has any recommendations

Subject choices are okay. If you are sure you will never take a maths-oriented career, you may want to select Math Studies since it is ridiculously simple - this means you will have more time to focus on a high score for your other subjects.

On another note, in my school the majority of students take either Economics or Psychology. I take Economics, it is an easy subject but my friends who take Psychology just spend so much time on the subject. In comparison, they memorise so much it's stupid, whereas Economics is just logic bordering on common sense with barely any memorising. HL Bio has a lot of memorising stuff so maybe you might want to tone down on the memorising? Economics HL is easier than Chemistry HL so that would also makes your life easier.

Of course, it ultimately depends on whether or not you will enjoy the subjects you will take.

I like both Biology and Chemistry.

But could I get into medical school with just math studies. Won't unis want Math SL instead?

Check out the pre-requisites on the universities you want to enter. In Australia, there are no pre-requisites whatsoever. It would benefit me to do Math Studies instead of Math HL XD It doesn't matter what I take so long as I obtain high scores.

Maybe the universities do want to see you challenge yourself with "harder" courses, but it makes it easier for you to get a 45/45.
