Hey guys
I have an interview for the IB at candi on Wednesday and I was wondering who else applied? And what are your HL and SL subjects?
HL:
Psychology
Spanish
Anthropology
SL:
Maths studies
English
Biology

Are these good subjects or are they too "soft":confused:
Thanks!!

keep in mind though that subject choice doesn't actually matter unless it's not directly related to your degree. apart from the degree relation, the most important thing is achieving high grades.

i did hear that psych is pretty hard though. and English is challenging at both SL and HL level.

spanish is relatively easy as a course, but a lot of spanish fluent language speakers take it so competition for the higher marks might be a bit more fierce. that's just how it is in my school.
math studies is also seen as easy, as is bio SL.

Again, how subjects are perceived by most IB students doesnt actually determine how hard/recognized they are. Your subject choice is fine. If you get good grades, it won't really matter what you took. if you like your courses and think you'll do well, go for it.

I think taking both HL Anthropology and Psychology is not a good idea as they are both considered 'soft' subjects. having one soft HL is usually fine though. I suggest you bump up either english or biology to HL.

Thanks for the advice, I'll stick with psychology higher level though bc I take it at gcse level and would like to carry on with it.. Fingers crossed I do good!!!!
