What HLs do you take and why?

“I take IB math Analysis HL, IB Physics HL, and I take IB English Lit HL because since I’m in IB French 1 and I have to do ab initio I don’t have the option to do French HL. I took history over the summer in my junior year so I don’t have the option to do HL history and I’m interested in the STEM field so I wanted to challenge myself.”

How are you feeling about the IB diploma going into your senior year?

“I’m feeling worried about all of these IAs and the exams but I think now that i’ve gotten used to how IB works and the course load, its not as scary as it was going from sophomore year to junior year”
