Is it a bad idea to only do 6 higher level subjects? The 6 are: Technology Construction DCG Maths Economics Engineering 4 of the subjects have a project worth 50% of marks (except DCG, that's 40%) and the other 2 (Maths & Economics) are my best 2 subjects, I find them really easy. I'm currently doing Geography but I'm finding it much harder than my other subjects. I want to drop Geography and do 6 H.L. subjects (I'm doing O.L. English and I'm exempt from Irish & Languages) but I've been told that I shouldn't because if 1 of my exams go wrong I have no back-up subject. What should I do?
