This may look like I'm defending Lc who I know but I have to say she has a point. Actually, in a way, you both have a point.
Yes, doing HL may mean you learn more and may get more satisfaction but it's not that black and white. Would you rather do SL and get a 7 or do HL and get a 5 and risk the chance of missing your uni offer?
Yes, the achievement and satisfaction you get in HL is all nice and good, but if it won't help you get to the uni you want (or worst, hinder you) then it's not worth it, I don't think.
And I don't think just because you can do SL means that you can do HL easily. Maybe for you, but not for everyone.
yes, unless ur maths is really crap, or HL for sure
Since if u think u cant handle, u can change u SL at anytime
If you think that there is even the smallest possibility of needing Maths HL for your university course then go ahead and do it.
It is much, much easier to start with Maths HL and drop down to SL then it is to start at SL and claw your way up to HL!
u guys all seem to b caught up in maths. well feel free 2 help me as well. i m really really confused between HL and SL maths as i only got an A in my maths gcse n quite honestly i don't believe that i have the ''passion'' for maths which is needed for HL according 2 my IB teacher. however, most universities offering science degrees seem 2 ignore SL maths n demand HL maths which just confuses me even more. so shall i just give it try n move down to SL if i cant handle it?
