I have two teachers who really, really know me well and would write great recs for me when the time comes. Unfortunately, while they both taught the hardest classes for GCSE one now takes the SL Math class, and the other takes the HL history class.

I'm leaning towards taking HL math and SL history : (.

Do you think it's worth pushing myself - probably to the detriment of my grades or ECs - to take HL history (as a 5th HL) just to get that teacher rec? (of course i would not drop down to SL math for any reason...)
