    So I'm thinking about starting IB next school year and what I'm mostly thinking about studying at uni is medicine, so for that, I would need atleast SL math.
    (I'm choosing IB to keep my options more open incase I change my opinion on what I want to study)
    And to get to the point, I have never been really good at math, like I never failed and I managed to get quite good grades (around an 80% mark) but it always took me more time to understand it and all that. So basically, for someone who isn't really good at math, is SL math hard?

    SL Maths is approximately equal to AS Maths, so I would say no, it's not that hard. I know people who are absolutely inept at maths, but who are taking further maths. Maths just requires a bit of work.
