Hey I am currently in ibdp 1 and I am asking this with some hope that someone would reply. Did you find out that can you change your subjects or not.
I have taken English HL and I don't really need it. Instead I want to take economic HL.
Hope someone is reading this and would reply to this.

I am currently writing my physics IA and I do not know what to do. My teacher is new so she doesn't understand the IB system and I don't know if I can even use my current experiment.

Please help me if anyone can!
