    I was going to say "no", but for your schedule, it looks like you could barely do it. Your SLs don't require too much study. Focus on Bio HL (that will eat out of your IB score if it isn't great).

    Well you've no option now seeing as they are in a month? Don't fret, just get down with it and you'll be glad the exams will be over in a month and a half!

    Your HL subjects appear to be very content intensive, so long as you're getting your 5/6s in past papers you'll be fine.

    Past papers boost your knowledge and experience of the exams.
    No point in just revising for your exams, you really need to apply your knowledge in the past papers to ensure you answer the questions like in the mark scheme

    Good luck

    Without Higher Maths, anything is possible.

    In your situation, I would focus on your Biology, Geography, and Italian. Reasons:

    -Italian will need vocabulary and grammar -> memorization

    -Geography will require memorization (and a sharp set of colouring pencils)

    -Biology will require memorization

    The other subjects? English A1 is easy enough to get a 5/6 in if your coursework is up to scratch. Do some practise questions the day or two before.

    Psychology? I have friends doing it, saying it is very simple.

    Maths? It's studies. Easy.

    One month to learn material is fine, one month to get used to IB exam question format is kind of pushing it if you haven't done a lot of practice before. You should be fine, but don't forget to get used to the exam question format or else you will go in knowing material but getting thrown off by stupid trick questions and time constraints.

    If you work hard, then yep I'm sure you can. Remember that biology is also one of the last exams so you might have a bit of time to cram last minute revision during the exam weeks. Biology is difficult though and I have done very little revision for it personally which is worrying. If you can get 90% in your maths exams already though then you're definitely on course for 34 with a couple of bonus points. i've got to get 36 so you're :not the only one. Just keep doing those practice papers and taking good advice from other posters and you'll be fine.
