Does your school have an option of Film? Because that would help with media.
Nice subjects and admirable considering you're doing 2 languages.
I've just started IB and at uni I want to do International Relations or Theology or something similar. At the moment I'm doing:
Ab initio Italian
Do you think that these are suitable subjects to take for doing International Relations? At the moment Italian is way too easy for me, because I've already been doing it for three years (I can't switch to B SL because there aren't enough students for it), so I'm considering switching to either Geography or Economics, but this would mean that I'd probably get less overall on the IB because I wouldn't have the advantage of doing a language that I'm already quite good at.
What do you think? Should I change my group 6 subject?
I'm looking for some advice on subjects as a GCSE student (haven't taken the exams yet but the decisions are being made based on mocks right now). I'm predicted at 9 A*s in my 10 subjects (I hate that english lit exam), and I'm thinking to eventually apply to uni for Natural Sciences or a pure science (fingers crossed on Oxbridge).
Currently, these are my thoughts for HL and SL:
My questions are on whether these options good for me, how these options are perceived by unis, how you'd consider them, possibly what future careers does this combination hold for me and whether IB itself is as taxing as people make it out to be.
Thanks so much in advance!
I'm in year eleven right now and I was thinking of doing the Ib. The problem is that the college I want to go to offers only very limited courses. I was thinking of doing economics or law at university.
So here are my subjects so far:
HL maths, HL literature, HL economics
SL chem, SL business/SL bio, SL French B
Should I do business or bio at SL?
And will HL maths be easier if I've already done add maths at igcse?

Hi, I've just started the IB and I want to do philosophy or theology at uni - most of my subjects are fine but History HL is horrible for me right now... I got an A* at GCSE but now it's nothing like I imagined it to be, and I don't think I'll get the grade I hoped for at the ened. I want to change subjects but my only other option would be to do Visual Arts (school doesn't offer very many subjects), but it's kind of regarded as a soft subject, so will it hinder my chances at going to a top uni? I'm thinking either Durham, St Andrews and maybe Oxford, although most likely the first two.
Subject combinations I'm doing now:
English lit HL
German B SL
Although if I would drop history, my subjects would be this:
English lit HL
Visual Arts SL
^ I think due to timetabling issues I'll have to do Physics HL, I've heard it's hard but I think if I put the work in I'll be capable, and I'm pretty good at German but I don't know if they'll be able to schedule me in.
So basically, will doing VA instead of History hinder my chances at a top uni?
I want to go into dentistry:
Maths Studies SL (Sixth form doesn't offer pure SL)
Is that okay?
This is kind of a "which IB subjects should I do" thing. Ok, I plan to study Chemistry at Oxbridge atm, Idk if this will change.
I plan to do:
SL Mandarin ab initio (I can speak fluent Mandarin already, easy 7)
Now a sixth former just came into my room (I'm at boarding school, IB next year) and he told me that HL Maths is really really really hard. Like, you need to be a genius or something. He told me not to do Latin but Economics (I chose Latin because I heard it looks good on UCAS, CV, etc.) and that Economics was relatively easy for him despite him not having prior knowledge of it before IB. So what I'm after is - your opinion on these subjects, whether you struggle or not, or some general advice that would make me change my choices. Bearing in mind currently the only career and future I want is in Chemistry, though this might change; so I want the best choices to make my life studying IB easier and my Oxbridge app/IB diploma the best possible. What do you guys suggest? I'm aiming for all A*s I/GCSEs, with my weakest subject as English. I also plan to do some early preparation, such as looking into some SL Chemistry now etc.
