im not very good at maths, and it was genuinely fine, i did minimal preparation for the maths exam i mainly focused on the science paper. their SL maths is multiple choice and its just a range of topics from the iGCSE edexcel exam board so there's lots of topics like algebra, trigonometry, there was some inequalities and one functions question on there. all the questions are worth one mark and theres only 15 questions and you are allowed a calculator.

science im not the best at either but it was genuinely fine, u do a paper with all three sciences but u choose two. i originally planned to do bio and physics since i suck at chemistry but i found the chemistry questions easy when i went into the exam so i did bio and chem. biology was about photosynthesis, respiration and enzymes and chemistry was balancing equations and talking about an experiment.

then theres the english paper, i did SL and it was just a few questions about a passage, essentially unseen prose kind of thing and then the humanities/thinking skills paper and i did the economics section, and there was a passage and a few questions on it and then i had to write an essay about the impacts of banning alchohol.

overall, it was genuinely fine!
