Hi,I'm currently an IB1 student and as of right now I'm taking Math SL. I really want to study clinical psychology in university, and I know some uni's require Math SL to get in but I'm really not good with maths and my grades aren't doing so well right now. My teacher recommends I move down to Math studies and I really want to but I'm worried that I'll have less of a chance getting accepted because of it. My current IB subjects are:Psychology HL, Art HL, English A HL, Biology SL, Spanish studies and Math SL. I also heard that some uni's won't accept Biology SL so I'm worried having both Bio SL and Math studies will make my application look bad, can anyone tell me if I should move down or stay in SL?

As a Psychology graduate, I can tell you that yes maths is a bit important, but most of the statistics stuff you do will be based on computer programmes. I don't remember any hard mathematical sums in my course.

We have exactly the same Hls and Sls . I also want to study psychology and got accepted to all my uni applications based on math studies so you should be fine
