    Hi, these are my IB subjects:

    HL Math
    HL History
    HL Economics
    SL Physics
    SL French
    SL Lang Lit

    Is this bearable with Math and History HL?
    Will it be easier taking Chem rather than Physics?
    Is Lang Lit easier than Lit?
    Is HL Math too difficult?
    What are good university courses/majors for these subjects?

    There's lots of memorisation you need to do for HL (and SL tbh) History and a lot of work you need to do for HL Maths, so I recommend swapping either one to SL.

    With HL Maths and Econ, though, you could consider a degree and career in Economics, so :dontknow:

    As a HL Lang Lit student, the subject itself is by no means easy, but it's definitely interesting as you don't just cover linguistics. It incorporates a lot of different subject areas into the mix to understand why and how texts work the way they do. So, for instance, we went into some political theories so as to understand the role of the media as ideology enforcers and stuff
