How's the philosophy so far? Not many schools have this option, so it'd be interesting to hear your views on the subject
I know you didn't ask me... but I'm going to tell you what I think anyway :P
Philosophy was awesome! Easily my favourite IB subject, although it probably helped that I had good teachers as well... and it complimented ToK quite nicely. I'm now doing Philosophy at Cambridge and loving it! Yaay

why do that to yourself?
I'll end up dropping English A1 HL to SL after this term anyways. And Spanish B HL is just really easy. (doesn't even feel like an IB subject)

I'm sure TOK must have been a breeze then since you did philosophy too And wow, Cambridge! Have fun there

Exactly the same with me - by far my favourite subject and I'll definitely be doing it at uni, and it makes TOK so much easier!

I've finished now, so with hindsight:

Psychology HL (hardest) - A huge amount of memorisation, unpredictable marking, and requires very decent essay-writing skills.
Biology SL - Plenty of memorisation.
Maths SL
French HL - I find studying for French very easy as it's so passive: just expose yourself to as much French as possible. But I think your level of it has to be rather high to do well.
Economics HL - a very straightforward subject.
English SL (easiest) - the marking is quite unpredictable, though.

Business Management HL
Economics HL
ESAS SL
French SL (Easiest)

I would have taken Computer Science HL in place of ESAS SL and shifted English Lit to SL. However, Computer Science is not offered in my school.

Unfortunate
