I underachieved quite a lot, and have missed the offers for both my unis and so shall be retaking in November.
I got HL German 4,
SL English 5,
I want to study MFL at uni, so I'm definitely retaking German, but I think that I should also retake another subject (or 2?) as I need to bump up my total score for all of the unis I'm interested in.
My first thought would be to retake Maths studies as I didn't really work for it and I think that with a bit of work, it would be the easiest subject to bump up. However, I've been told I should ignore SL subjects? So that would leave just Psychology (I'm not retaking Philosophy).
But, Psychology seems like a difficult subject top retake as the syllabus is so large and I'm worried I won't be able to cover it all before November. I could easily do worse and drop down to a 4. Also, in the 3 papers I got 3,5,7 leveling out to a 5, and so retaking it I could also very easily just come out with 5,5,5 with a lot of work.

First you need to look at what requirements are there for your uni offer and the number of points needed. I reckon you should retake german, maths and bio (if you hv potential for a higher grade)

It would make sense to retake German, and maybe English, although that is a lot of work. Its not true that the SLs dont matter, I think it would be best to retake whatever subjects you feel most comforable with, and can work with best on your own, or with less help.

I've decided to go with German, Maths and TOK. If I can get 24/30 for the TOK essay I could potentially get a bonus point which would be fantastic considering it's just one 1500 word essay.
