Hey guys! I’m a sophomore in high school and I’m going to be doing the IBDP next year. I’ve chosen the courses I’ll be taking throughout the next two years. How hard are these courses, how much is the workload, and what should I expect?

- IB English HL
- IB History HL
- IB Biology HL
- IB Math HL
- IB Spanish SL
- IB Physics SL

Idk if I’d take 4 HL’s that’s gonna be a lottt of work. Expect as the other person said a lot of work and memorizing.

What do you want to study? Take the 3 HL that fit that and leave the other one to SL

Don't take 4 HLs please, sometimes people before IB want to challenge themselves and all, but trust me IB the way it is it's challenging already. And even if you start and fine 4 HLs okay it will be harder for you during externals. So invest all your efforts in 3 HLS and aim high for them rather than scattering between 4 HLS and not scoring as well! Good luck xx

i do the same except math sl and chem sl instead of physics. three HLs is enough!!! very challenging as it is!! consider what you want to do with your life as the other people have said and choose wisely.

I suggest not to take 4 HLs, choose the subjects you need the most!

Start with 4 higher level so you have the choice to drop math to standard since it’s so hard. But I take english hl and history hl and they’re fine as long as your teacher’s engaging. That’s my opinion at least. Also that there’s some interest there in the subjects too! My friend was in a similar situation but didn’t wanna drop math and dropped physics instead so yeah I suggest keep it at 4 but drop early.
