My daughter is applying to study BSc psychology.
Shehas been in a full IB school that didn't do MYP exams so only IBDP at end of year 13.
She has ADHD and exam anxiety, performs very badly in exams in general compared with her coursework and classroom contributions. In her maths SL exam, she bombed completely. One of the papers (worth 40%), she had an anxiety attack and hardly answered any questions and blanked out. She ended up with a 3. Overall she has 31 pts including 5s in HL Bio and Psych.
Her lovely maths teacher has written an additional reference for her, speaking about her good her internal assessment was and that she is at least a grace C in GCSE maths (the minimum required for her course). While a 3 is like a D, obviously SL maths is harder than GCSE maths so it seems a little unfair that a 4 in SL maths is considered the equivalent (although she'd definitely have got a 4, if not a 5, if she really could demonstrate her knowledge in exams, her internal assessment was a 6).
We also have a letter from her psychiatrist attesting to her learning difficulties and challenges with demonstrating knowledge in exams.
Is she likely to be accepted on this basis? Is the lack of maths formal qualification going to be an issue?
