I am trying to decide which subjects/classes I should pick for the IB. I am really passionate about Psychology and Art but also think I may enjoy Biology. I’m wondering if you guys could make sample schedules for me or just some advice on what I should pick. I listed some of my strengths and weaknesses below. Thanks! (PS: I am already enrolled in Spanish)

Have no idea of what I want to do for a career

Hi! Because you seem like a strong and creative writer, I would opt for HL Lang & Lit. Also if you’re passionate about psychology but your school doesn’t have it, I would suggest maybe Global Politics or World Religions because you will explore what people think and how they act and why. Also if you do Bio I would recommend doing SL. Your next HL could be Visual Art because you seem to be interested in that. And since you have a strong math background you would be good at Math HL. Then if you’re doing spanish (SL i’m assuming idk why) you should be good i think. HL: Lang, Visual Art, Math SL: Span, Bio, Global Politics (maybe?)

@ageis3648 Thank you so much! I’ve been doing some research and I think I’m going to want to major in some sort of biological psychology or neuroscience so I’m gonna stick with HL Bio. I’m just a little frustrated because my school only offers 3 classes for Individuals and Societies and none of them seem to be super beneficial in my career choice (IB Psych would be useful even Philosophy)
