World Issues (CGW4U) in French or Challenge and Change in Society (HSB4U) in French. These are grade 12 credits, but can be taken in the Grade 11 year.

Please keep in mind HL math students should be sitting well into the 90%+ range in their Grade 10 math. HL Math is like a first year university math.

What percentage of students take full IB?
Donna Naufal Moffatt
47:29
It is best that students connect with their English teacher for specifics. But essentially the Lit has all traditional Literature text, where as Lang & Lit, has the same number of texts studied, but different types of texts, not just literature.

If we choose to do the full IB program will we still be allowed to choose regular Ontario course credits?
Donna Naufal Moffatt

All IB courses are aligned with Ministry credits. If there is room in your IB schedule you can take a regular Ministry course as well.

Would IB provide the opportunity to take (or otherwise encompass) the prerequisites listed for engineering?
Donna Naufal Moffatt
01:12:54
Yes…Engineering typically requires your maths, physics, and chemistry. This is never an issue for an IB programme.
Matthew Ramsden
01:13:18
Great - thanks.

Yes…HL Math is not necessarily required for Engineering. Of course this is always university dependent and it requires early research. It is not always the same formula for every school, it can be region dependent around the world. Happy to help where needed in sorting this out.

If you want to major in Science you need to keep your science program requirements in mind. It can be done, but it needs strategizing.
