History or English EE?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have to choose my EE subject in a couple days. I am not sure whether to choose between a History or English EE. (Both are my HL subjects by the way).

As such, I have a couple questions in mind.

1. Can you give me a general idea on these two subject areas?

2. Which topic would you suggest is "easier" to do well in?

2. What do you think is the hardest thing to do within these EE topics?

Thanks!

1. History essay you write about something in history and importantly argue for your interpretation. Lit. essay you write about a novel and argue that x lit. feature hay y effect.

2. History has a lower mean and median score. Statistics back that up. You can take a look at the IB bulletin if your curious. I also personally think that the history essay is harder to write but that's a personal opinion.

 3. Getting a personal interview is pretty hard for both, start early on that and be persistent.

Thank you so much!

2. Just to confirm, do you mean that people generally tend to perform better at English than History?
