I am currently a junior and in 5 IB classes… HL math, history, English, bio and SL physics. I plan on going into an engineering field, not biological engineering. I do not see HL bio being academically advantageous aside from the fact that it is a HL science. I have heard through the grape vine that if you drop a two year IB class after year 1 you do not get the weighted credit, which I would like to avoid. If not taking year 2 means losing the credit I will probably stick it out
Secondly, I am taking my first dedicated chemistry class this year and am finding it enjoyable. My school offers HL chem, no SL. I was wondering if i could take either year of this class as a senior. I do not know if I could take year 1 since its for juniors, and I do not know if I could take year 2 since its for those that took year 1. But if I was allowed to take year 2 I could probably figure the first year out over the summer, I know the whole HL chem class and I could get the book.
do you lose weighted credit if you do not take the second year of a HL class?
Can you take year 1 of a HL class as a senior or could you take year 2 without year 1?
