    I'm planning on taking IB higher bio, chem, and english lang lit.
    Mathematics isn't my strongest subject but I'm confident that I can get a 7 if I take it at standard level.

    I want to take the NatSci course in cambridge, specifically in biology, and I was wondering- are two higher science subjects enough? or do I need the math higher?

    successful applicants: what did you take for higher level IB/A Level? I've heard standard level is equal to AS level so would that make it more acceptable? Would not taking higher math greatly hinder my chances?

    Thanks.
    Yes 2 higher science subjects are definitely enough! As long as you have Biology and Chemistry you'll be fine. (As long as you have a predicted 7 in both a do good in the NSAA.) Getting a 7 in SL Maths would definitely be beneficial though.

    Yeap according to here it should be fine, make sure the college you're applying to doesn't have that third science/math HL requirement though.
