Hello, I'm starting the diploma program in September and I plan to major in Psychology.

I'm taking Math A&I SL because math isn't my strong suit, and taking 4 HLs is too difficult for me. Does this really significantly lower my chance at getting accepted into universities? Is it really a 'soft subject'?

Hey there, fellow M22 student here (started school in July) ! When we consider STEM based university courses then yes AI SL would be considered a soft option but for a Humanities centered course like Psychology this wouldn't be an issue provided that you do well in relevant subjects like Psychology and Biology + I believe its better to give your best to get a 7 in AISL than perhaps struggle in AIHL/ AASL in a subject thats not your strong suit. All the best for your upcoming  IB journey :)

 

( These are reflections of my teachers inputs as well as research for UK/Singapore/US Univ Requirements and preferences)
