English A SL vs English B HL


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm currently in G10 but I just want to ask and prepare for the IB in advance. I haven't studied in overseas for a long period so my english ability is worse than others. (I'm an EAL student.)

Though I got high score in the english proficiency test, I'm not sure if it is okay to take the English A SL instead of choosing English B HL. I heard that English B has more disadvantages compare to English A SL... what should I do?

Yes, English B is more general more basic than A. English A is more focusing to literature and a lot of reading sections. IF you are interested at readying then A of course. If you want to study in universities that are abroad, especially United States or Britain then English A helps a lot.
