So I’m planning on switching to maths AI HL from AI SL because most universities who have the course I want to study (zoology/animal behaviour) require you to take HL maths (ai or aa) or physics or chemistry, as well as hl bio which I’m already doing.
I have never been great at maths, I got a c in IGCSE’s and got Es and Ds throughout year 11. I was close to B in the exam and will retake it in November to get a b or above because it’s a requirement of the course.
I do enjoy maths when I understand the topic, but I would say I never put in a the right amount of effort into it and studying for it. I’m trying to get off to a good start this year, and study from the beginning, but I worry that it won’t be enough to make it through HL maths and get a 6 in it. I don’t know it only works out for people who’ve had a good understanding of the concepts from year 10 and 11 or even before that, or if I can catch up and make it work for me? I am pretty determined to get into a good school and the course I want, and have made up my mind about it for the most part, but I would like to hear your opinions and experiences!
And would really appreciate any resources I can find which have been helpful to people doing maths ai hl
