    So I'm in year 11, the year before I begin the IB course. I'm not sure my choices are actually possible

    Higher Level
    - Biology (Not in question)
    - Chemistry (Not in question)
    - English lang+lit (Can be moved down to SL instead of music and replaced with psychology)

    Standard Level
    - Music (I would like to take it but might not be possible...)
    - French B (Not in question)
    - Maths (Not in question)

    I'm just wondering if I actually have to take a humanity (AKA Psychology) and drop music...

    Yes you have to do a humanities subject at HL or SL. You won't be able to do English, Music and Psychology.
