Have to choose bio OR physics in high school. Is it ok to have no physics?
In my daughter's high school IB program, she has to choose a science for her junior and senior years; policy is that they are required to take the same science for both of those years. My understanding is that they have to take both years in order to be fully prepared for the senior IB test in that subject.
So she has taken PRE-IB bio and PRE-IB Chem (There is no pre-IB physics), and next year has to choose her track. She is definitely interested in physics, but not sure about a career in it (and isn't interested in mechanical physics), and she has strong interests in biology (neurosciences, genetics, etc...not medicine).
She is leaning toward choosing bio, but is reluctant to miss out on any exposure to physics.
Will having no physics courses in HS be detrimental to her as far as getting into, and being successful in, college?
