    Are you going for the diploma? Or just certificates?

    It looks good. Although I highly encourage you NOT to take IB math studies senior year. It's known to be one of the "fake" IB classes. It's even not regarded highly from admissions reps. Its kind of like "Why did you stop after precalc..?" Plus IB Math Studies is basically Alg 2. I would take IB Calc SL.

    IB Bio HL will look really good if you want to do something Bio related in college. The reason being is that in IB Bio you will do so much research..something most students do not do. You will definitely stand out once you start talking to college admission reps about how you conducted research to see how ibuprofen impacts liver enzymes (Lol, or whatever you do research on). Good luck in the IB! It is hard, difficult, you are signing away your social life, and you will have at least two mental breakdowns...but it is sooo worth it.
