Physics SL Options

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I've been looking at the grade boundaries for IB Physics and have noticed their is no distinction between grade boundaries for different options (relativity, astrophysics etc...) in paper three. Does anybody know why this is, considering there are distinctions made between options for Mathematics HL which 'level' the playing field if one option was easier/harder than another. 

In this vain I'm thinking that it would be advantageous to go for astrophysics as it is by and large considered the easiest topic, however it'd be great to hear from people's past experiences of the options (the SL components preferably since I'm taking SL Phys). The class teacher is fairly stringent in her choice of relativity as an option, which I believe is thought to be more difficult, so would it be feasible to study Astro by myself (I'm on a mid 7 currently so am fairly competent)?

Thanks, 

:)
