Hey, I think it was meant to go on an IB thread? Do you know how I can move it?

Thanks for moving it!! However, on the Oxford site it doesn't really help with my choices for higher or lower level - I think because not many people do IB

Any 2 1 degree from a top end university (Especially those that are related - economics, mathematics, etc) will be good starting point.

Focus on networking
Hmmm,,,, but its not a graduate course???

Yes it does:

"For Psychology, it is highly recommended for candidates to have studied one or more science subjects (which can include Psychology) or Mathematics to A-level, Advanced Higher, Higher Level in the IB or any other equivalent. For Linguistics, it is helpful for candidates to have studied English Language, Mathematics, a science or any other language. We expect you to have taken and passed any practical component in your chosen science subjects."

They won't be completely prescriptive - it's your IB after all - but if you want to follow what they regard as "recommended" or "helpful" it's all there.

Yes, sorry I knew that I wasn't being specific enough!! I meant that they don't specify if, say I was doing a science subject higher level, should I do - maths standard or studies --- or say should I do English or Biology higher level if I'm already doing psychology higher level.

I understand that they won't give advice that specific, or be completely prescriptive, but the A-level advice is there and a little bit more useful.

Apply A-level advice to IB. You have more subjects anyway, A-level is more restrictive.

But fundamentally pick IB HLs and SLs you enjoy and can do well at.
