I’m doing English A Lit HL and Swedish A Lit SL but after my Swedish teacher went through the books we would read I started to think about perhaps asking if I could take Swedish A Lit HL as well and take four HL:s? I’m Swedish and I really love all my subjects (except Maths) so I guess I’m asking if it would be too hard? My other HL subjects are Visual Arts and History and I would like to perhaps study some kind of literature at Oxford after the IB.

Hello! There are people in my school doing 4HLs and its completely manageable if you have a strong interest in all 4 subjects, and have good time management.

The main thing you would have to check is your timetable, as HLs have more teaching hours than SLs so you would have to work something out with your school!

@genejinhui Thank you so much! I’ll ask my Swedish teacher what she thinks then!

@AlmaLilja I’m from Sweden too and I take 4 HLs, and it’s manageable! Mine are English A HL, Swedish A HL, Psychology HL, History HL, SL being Math Studies and Biology.
And if you regret it in the future you have time to drop one of the HLs right before the finals.
