    OK hello first of all!
    I was wondering how hard business is as a subject to get a 7 (compared to IGCSE). Here are my subjects. I'm hoping to study medicine in the future:yes: :

    HL:
    Chemistry
    Biology
    Business

    SL:
    French B
    English A1
    Math

    I've taken business at IGCSE level and found it relatively easy (although boring at times). How is it in IB? Do many people get 7s? and, is it better I take any other humanities if I wish to study medicine in the future (e.g. ITGS, History etc.)???
    Sorry bout all the questions guys...

    I don't know anything about business & management,..
    It might be more useful to take e.g. Psychology as it is related to medicine. They generally want you to take an essay-based subject to show diversity. Try taking Psy/Econ/English/History HL?
    Also try to pick something you'll enjoy, as otherwise it would be pointless to spend immense periods of time studying something boring.

    and it is difficult to get a 7 in every subject, never reaching above 10% of people getting a 7 (there is a statistics portion on ibo.org).

    The IB is a time-consuming programme, and if you want to go into medicine, you might prefer a-levels as it is "easier" and better looked upon.
