They're absolutely fine! There are no subject requirements but essay based subjects at higher level are recommended and you've got two essay based higher levels (English/Danish) plus an essay based standard level (history), so don't worry!
So nice to hear! Thank your for your reply

What about studying law with these subjects? Mine are meant for the medical studies ;.)

HL, Chem, Bio, Eng A, Danish A HL
SL: Math, History
Why do some IB students have 4 HL subjects? Does it give any benefits in uni application? (In my school, it was never an option, so I am just curious.)

Oh, I chose that myself! I honestly don't think it will benefit you when applying for uni. To be frank, I started out with 3, but ended with 4 because I wanted my native language (Danish) to be moved from SL to HL, because I simply couldn't cope with the fact, that I was having it on SL, when I had my 4th language (Eng A) on HL. :rolleyes:

Nope, taking 4 higher levels isn't beneficial as universities don't recognise the extra effort as they could care less -> this is how UK universities see it. America universities may acknowledge the extra effort as the most competitive unis take your course rigor into account, taking an extra HL makes your schedule more rigorous but the extra effort isn't worth much as all american colleges view the IB diploma as the ''most rigorous course load'' so in essence taking the standard 3 HL/SL combo gets you the same credit in terms of effort. But if you do score a 6 or 7 and attend a university that gives credit for IB subjects then you'll get extra transfer credit.

honestly, they don't really care about specific subjects when doing law apart from maybe english at HL. i would suggest choosing subjects you're best at and/or the 'easier' subjects such as Geography HL, Business HL and math studies, its more about getting maximum points possible that will get you a better chance

I'm considering law but I'm also considering veterinary science haha. I know they're literally on like opposite ends of sticks but as much as I love arguing and everyone tells me I'd be really well suited for law, I love animals as well and I love the sciences too much to give them up.

I got accepted to study IB with

HL - Bio, Chem, Psych,
SL - Eng, Math, Italian ab

Are these terrible decisions if I decide to study law ?

Doesnt matter imo, do the ones you will get the best grades in. They are fine because they are all traditional subjects.

Right now i am trying to decide between doing Biology SL or ESS SL as well
Which of the two do you think would help me more in my field of law?
I hear ESS is easier, but is it enough?

I have applied for Law and gotten a few offers from the UK and Hong Kong for this years intake. I don't think there is a preferred combination of subjects just a combination that would show a positive overall academic performance. My subjects were:
SL: Psychology, Math, Spanish;
HL: English A1, Economics and Biology

If you have any questions PM me or quote this message.
I've just wanted to ask, is it okey to take HL English, HL French and HL Psychology? Because many people wrote that I will also need HL History and HL Maths, but I'm not very good at them.

can you take mathematical studies if you're applying for law? I went on some university websites and it said that you should study subjects that render you fairly 'numerate'. Will taking the mathematical studies (which is the easiest math course in IB) change a university's perception of your mathematical ability?

I applied for law and i did:
HL History, English, Economics
SL Math, Physics, Thai

history is good because as someone said before it shows you can write essays and argue points well and defend your points of view. it also shows good analytical skills. my personal statement was pretty much based on my highers.

its also good if you can pick other analytical subjects or logic based ones . yeh
Wait this is amazing I have almost the same subject combo as you!
HL History, English A: Lit, Econ
SL Math, Bio, Chinese A: Lit

I would say that studying English Lit HL and History HL has helped me in my legal career so far. However, French SL and Psychology HL also were good to have.
