I would have done:

Economics HL
English Literature HL
History HL
Japanese SL

Argh, this is hard....

Probably something like this:

HL English (Ideally, this would be Latin, but what can you do)
HL History
HL Japanese
SL Economics
SL Maths
SL Biology

I'd probably then do Latin A Level privately or something. The drawback of IB is that if you're a languages/humanities student like me you really can't do all the subjects you want to! It's also super annoying that you have to do native language studies - I mean, English is descended from Latin, so why can't I just do Latin??

It would have been perfect for me, though. I like too many subjects!

Yeah, overall it is much more well-rounded and probably internationally competitive!!

Basing this off of the idea that you have to English, a language, and you can't do FM on the IB. Not sure if that's true though

I was really hoping to do IB but the school I would have gone to only offered SL Math

Anyway, here's what my subject choices would have been:
HL Math
HL Further Math
HL German
HL Computer Science
SL Geography
SL Russian or Danish ab initio

Still very bitter I didn't get to do this. Oh well.
