    Hi. I'm a sophomore and we've recently been introduced to the IB program and are currently being asked to start thinking about which courses we want to take next year.

    I'm not 100% sure what occupation I want to follow or what to study in university, so far these are the courses I want to take:

    HL English - Lang & Lit
    HL Spanish
    HL Physics
    SL Environmental Systems & Societies
    SL Math
    SL Visual Arts

    I'm not exactly worried about any of my courses rather than Physics. I did super well during Freshman and Sophomore years physics (as in, really well) and don't find it as challenging as most people claim it to be. I know the IB is much different and rigorous than 9th and 10th grade, which leads me to my question:

    Should I take HL Physics? I am aware it's going to be tough, but is it worth it? The teacher isn't fantastic but he's a very easy grader and helps out students who ask for it. How different is it to SL Physics?

    Thanks for any help in advance!
