IB Higher for studying Japanese at university? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Next year I'll be starting the IB at school and will be doing German HL, Economics HL, Biology HL and Japanese SL, Maths SL, English Literature SL.

    Preferably I'd like to go to a top university to study Japanese, but recently I've been worrying that I'll have a lower chance compared to someone with an A level in Japanese because Japanese A2 looks better than Japanese SL. Would this be the case? I know the course starts from scratch (you don't need previous knowledge of Japanese) but still, would I be at a disadvantage?

    Don't worry, I'll be taking Japanese from scratch and the universities I applied for accepted me . I'm going to Manchester where they split the class into beginners and advanced groups anyway.
    You're doing two foreign languages right now too which they will like. Just show your enthusiasm for Japanese in your personal statement and go for it!
