I'll be choosing my options next year, and am thinking of doing IB. These are these subjects I'm thinking of taking
Anthropology (HL/SL depending on which science I choose)
Maths Studies (SL)
Italian Ab Initio (SL)
Environmental Societies and Systems (SL) / Physics (HL)
Although I have no interest in continuing with any Science/Maths based subjects at university, I worry that taking Maths Studies and Environmental sciences might lower the quality of my uni application as I have heard that they are less highly regarded (no offence to those who take the subjects).
Some information about myself:
I have considered taking a Maths A-level with my course, but don't think it is right for me. I'm currently get A's in my science and Maths mocks, and am aiming for A*s in Science next year. However I don't take triple. Moreover, as of year 10 I have started to enjoy science less, which is why I'm slightly unsure about taking physics - also i'd like to take anthropology at higher if possible. What are your thoughts? And by taking HL English/French/Anthropology would this balance out the 'softer' subjects?Thanks
Worried my choices are too 'soft'? watch

Do not take physics hl if you do not like it even a little bit it requires so much effort and time to study it that you need to like it. Yes environmental systems and maths studies are considered a bit soft but if you think you can do really well in them I would suggest you take them.

Also I dunno if you got these subjects from an IB list or a school but be aware if you didn't get it from your school that IB Anthropology is vanishingly rare to actually be offered as a course. If you don't know 100% a school offers it, definitely check before setting your heart on it.
