  1. Hi, I wouldn't be worried about not being a native English speaker, especially if you're confident or at least moderately confident in your English. I was not a native speaker going into the IB. I was confident in my English though, meaning I knew my level of English wouldn't be an issue, which was why I went to the IB in the first place. Furthermore, English A SL is not very hard. You don't have to do the HL Essay and in your Paper 1 you only have to analyze one text in one hour and 15 minutes. Very doable.

As I understand it, Bio and Chem have a lot of memorization in them, which I don't particularly like in a subject. Also, physics is fun in the same way math can be fun if you find joy in solving problems. I can't speak for the other science, but depending on your interests, I would imagine Physics SL would be the most fun for you. Also, SL Physics isn't all that hard given you study f
