Can you please tell me what subjects in the IB are considered 'Essay- Based'? This is because I want to study Law at university and they say you need 'essay-based' subjects. What other subjects are good for Law?

Primarily English Literature and History. Some people also opt for Philosophy.

I took higher level History. Very much essay writing - as it to be expected. I wrote about 10-20 practice essays during the 2 IB years. Heres the thing: if I somehow managed it, then you can too. Even though I invested most of my subject efforts into history I was not a diligent student. Far from it.

For higher level history I can give you a tip: Its about mixing facts with personal (reasonable) analysis. Download as many grade boundaries from the previous year as you can and see what the examiners love. Study the grade boundaries of your route (European history, or middle eastern history etc. etc. etc.) Getting the perfect essay structure and organizing your thoughts in a clear manner is literally half the deal. The rest of the deal is to deliver good essay content.


Law schools do like history I heard. So if you want to study law, then history should be one of your priorities if you ask me.
