I want to study medicine in the UK, and want to do IB. So far I am doing the subjects:
AND i dont know for my last subjects (which will be SL) whether to pick Economics, ITGS or Psych!!!! General thoughts on which is most interesting/easiest??? THANKS SO MUCH!!!
If you want to apply for Medicine in the UK, you are expected to have top grades. A 36-38 is not unheard of for even the most lowly ranked Med schools.
You need to be strategic when you pick your subjects, especially your SLs. Remember, UK universities don't care at all what your SL subjects are, as long as they're high enough scores to boost your overall IB score. Psychology is notoriously difficult to get a 7 in. Globally, about 3% of IB Psychology students get 7s. Conversely, more than double the number of students (7-8%) get 7s in IB Economics.
Also, from a learning perspective, you will study Psychology at medical school, at least to some extent, I would imagine. Having a basic background in Economics, which you might not get a reasonable chance to study again might actually benefit you more in the long run!
I hope that helps!
