I want to do medicine. My other HL's are Biology and Chemistry. I am taking Math, English and Spanish Ab Initio as my SL subjects. What would work better for my package? Geography or Psychology?

What would work better is the subject that you are more likely to get a 6/7 in and that you enjoy more. Unless you are applying to Cambridge (and I don't even know if it applies to the IB, since you'll be doing maths anyways) the other subjects you do other than biology and chemistry are irrelevant. What is more important is the grade you get.

Personally, I would say go for psychology as it is such a good subject and is so interesting! Also the course will help you to develop an ability to empathise with others (a key skill a Doctor needs to have!) through learning about them. Hope this helps and good luck with your choice!

i’ve applied for medicine this year, and i take the exact same as you (except for french sl instead of spanish ab) and i had the choice of geography HL and history HL, so i just took the one i knew i could get a better grade in and i enjoyed more, no uni is going to ask you for more than bio and chemistry at HL so just go for the one you can do better in
