Re which IB to take, keep in mind that you can study politics at uni without having taken it at school, you can't with history.Last edited by Snufkin; 14-11-2017 at 07:01.

Personally, I would go with History. First of all, Global Politics is a rather new addition to the IB, so there's a chance that it will not be as well recognised by the university. History is an essay-based subject, so it preapares you for the essays you will write at uni, and also you'll learn the skills to assimilate and condense information quickly. A small number of unis actually mention History as a requirement.Last edited by d.2020; 26-11-2017 at 09:57. Reason: False link
