Part 3:
Persepolis (PLT)
The Great Gatsby
Master Harold and the boys (HL)
Part 4:
Romeo and Juliet
Sylvia Plath Poetry
Yeats Poetry (Only HL)

Hi Sonia,

According to the guide, you need to have 4 texts at SL and 6 at HL. Check. You are to have one text from the PLT in Part 3. Check. You are to cover at least two genres. Check. You are to cover at least two time periods. Check. And you are to cover at least two places. Check.

In the eyes of the IB, you have followed the course requirements. It's exciting embarking on a new journey with a new set of students. Good luck!
