    And you want to take HL Chem? It's a bit risky. I've heard HL Chem is pretty tough. Anyway, I took IGCSE Chem Extended and I'd have expected you would need at least that (at a B or A) to go into HL.

    I suppose anything is really possible if you work hard at it. If IB Chem is anything like IB Physics you'd start from the basic stuff and work your way up.

    if u got a C in IGCSE chem, then i suggest you give it a try and see, maybe u will be ok... i think chem HL is not that difficult at all (unlike physics HL), a frnd of mine got a C and took chem HL, but he dropped it after one semester, u never know....

    Hmmm, i say you could take it, however there is quite a jump between the SL and HL. The main reason would be why did you get the C? Was it because you had difficulties with the work or you were just lazy etc. If its the latter then HL could still be viable
