Art HL as a 7th IB subject?

    • Thread Starter

    I'm an IB student currently doing the 5th year of the MYP and moving onto the DP next year.
    My art teacher has recommended I should take art as I am currently achieving top marks in it and she likes my creativity.
    I want to study medicine after the DP and therefore need Biology and Chemistry. Since I can't drop either of them, I'm currently considering taking Art HL as a 7th subject.
    My other subjects are:

    HL – Chemistry, Biology, Business
    SL – English, German Mother tongue, Math

    How hard would it be in light of my other subjects to cope with the extra work?
    Would universities see the extra subject as a sign of me being a hard-worker?
    and if no, should I just do it anyways because I enjoy it and want to challenge myself?

    Thanks in advance!
