What's IB psychology like? Is it useful if you want to study psychology at uni? Is it difficult? Is it time-consuming? Is it interesting? Is it fun? Tell me anything.
There is barely any hwk for Psych, my favourite Ib subject so far.
I take psychology HL and love it. It's not particularly hard and depending on your teacher there isn't much homework. However, it requires quite a bit of writing so make sure you are able to do that.
As jitz said, biology overlaps a bit in some areas and if you are lucky (as in my case), you get to do animal behaviour as an option in Biology.

s3rene, sorry to hear you're having a rough time.
You start off from scratch, like any of the other IB courses (except languages).
I take psychology at HL too and it's my absolute favourite! I'll write EE out of psychology and probably go to study it in uni as well. It's particularly hard and not much of homework really. If you're interested even a little, I encourage you to take it.
lol being over ran by americans our school doesn't offer psychology its obscenely popular at uni though for some reason.
Er. You mean NOT particularly hard, right?
Anyway, Glad you guys all like it so much. Guru of time, i see you do music... lets talk! How you liking it? Hows bartok treating you?
Otherwise, hopefully you have found this thread useful
I do psychology in IB and i honestly hate the subject. I think its mostly to do with the psychology teacher, he's this really old and eccentric guy who doesnt know half the things he's teaching.
