Change ESS to Economics or change Business to Chemistry?

Recommended Posts

My current subjects are HL Math, Physics, Lang & Lit, ESS, Business, and French ab initio.

I have 2 concerns with this:

1. Business and ESS are taught by the same person, and he kind of can't teach

2. Because I take Business, ESS, and ab initio, I'm afraid that it would not be competitive enough when applying to universities

As a result, I'm considering one of the following:
a) Take Business as a HL (have 4 HLs)

b) Change Business to Chemistry

c) Change ESS to Economics

What do you suggest? I'm leaning towards the first two options, but I really don't know.

I would definitely not take 4 HLs. I used to have 4 HLs (Biology, Chemistry, English B and Geography) and I've recently dropped Geography to SL. I took it at HL because I wasn't sure what course I want to study at the university and so if I need Geo or not, but when I made my mind about the course, I thought that it won't be really useful and I will have to focus on this subject much more having more content to learn etc.

I would suggest changing either Business or ESS tp Chemistry/Economics. As far as you don't specifically need any of these subjects, it doesn't matter which one you change. Just check the content of these subjects and decide which one is easier (and more interesting) to you and choose that one :)

Honestly, changing ESS to chemistry is too late, since chemistry is hard, especially in HL.

There were some people dropping out of it. 

I suggest that you keep the same subjects, and just because you take ESS in SL doesn't make you a competitive candidate. 

Having a high predicted grade and a high final grade takes into account.

I strongly recommend that you don't change business to chemistry. Chemistry is really hard and many hours of effort will be needed.
