I am currently IBDP year 1 taking SL Maths (Getting high 4's) and I want to move to Math studies because I feel bad about my grades. I need 36 in but I've been getting about 31-2 (not including TOK/CAS/EE) and I think moving to Studies would boost my grades.

I wanna apply to a Business course with a focus in Marketing. Do you think I should move to math studies?

My math teacher says it will be too late to start Studies because I would have to revise the whole syllabus over the summer, and he also thinks that I can do SL even though i've been getting 4's.

What are your thoughts?

Hi, bold move. I know Studies is different content to SL, so it is not as though we (I do studies) are doing easier versions of SL work - it's quite different content, but there is some overlap, and studies is much easier when you start it from the beginning. But, maybe it depends on what you have missed this year and what content you covered in your pre-IB year. Find our what you have missed.

Yes, would highly recommend. If you're uni course doesn't want a math standard then go for it, it doesn't affect your chances. Plus its the last year they will offer this course so change now before you wont be able too.
