    Can you help me choose my subject combination? At uni I might study international relations, law, economics, political science or something like this. I was also thinking of a second major in a foreign language... I'm really confused.

    Eng LAL HL
    French HL
    Global Politics HL

    Spanish B SL (online)
    ESS/Biology SL
    Maths SL

    Instead of the Spanish online course, I can choose psychology, economics or philosophy (all of them are offered online). What's the best combination?

    I must score +40 and therefore I wouldn't want to have too many hard subjects but at the same time I don't wanna choose ESS, Maths studies and Spanish AB because they could ruin my future chances since they are very much considered "soft subjects".

    If you're thinking of studying Economics you should probably choose Econ rather than one of the languages.

    I mean keep in mind that I'm no expert but I think having 2 languages and Econ is better than 3 languages for all of the options you mentioned in your first post (including international relations)

    Another thing you can do is going to the website of whatever university you want to study at, go to their undergraduate courses and look at the "entry requirements" to see what courses you have to have

    Fortunately/unfortunately unis don't really set specific subject requirements for IR, so it's up to me (for economics, on the other hand, Maths HL is required).


    Do you think this combination looks solid or too soft for someone who whishes to apply for IR at a top uni?

    English A, French B, Global Politics HL
    Economics, Maths, Biology SL
