i am a more humanities inclined person, and right now, my courses are
ib math sl
ib french sl
ib chem sl
ib history hl
ib eng hl
ib bio h
since our school offers mandrin chinese B, and it is also my mother tongue, i wanted to take it as a extra certificate, but however, this class occurs at the same time as ib french, and i wish to keep french...
so my idea was to take chinese B as an extra certificate self-taught, but i am already going to year 2 this september, is it still possible?
my chinese is very good, so that is not a problem, and my coordinator is on vacation...so do you guys think this is possible?
i want to keep all my courses, do the chinese internal assessments and the exam, and use it for my diploma points instead of chemistry, which i suck at.
thanks a lot

that's what I did with Swedish B SL. As far as you do your orals and your IBC wont complain to IBO that you have started the course in IB2, it is OK. So yeah, it is possible and would be very sensible if your chemistry sucks (I also changed chemistry for Swedish B where I got a 7, while in chemistry I would get nothing more than 5). So do it, that's what I think.

hmm...thats like a great plan, i shall go talk to my IBC when school starts,
if i do self-taught, how does it work, i mean for the orals, who do i go to, and if i need clarification, who do i go to?
also can i find some information on self-taught candidates? is it in the syllabus?

self taught is the equivalent of SL. you just do all the stuff on your own. Ask your IBC about the details since every school does it differently. You will just need a teacher who will ask you questions in english during your oral presentation.
