Super rigorous and better than anything you can get at IB if you are applying for a natural sciences or engineering.
IB is more of a liberal arts education.
liberal arts? Tell that to someone doing HL Physics Chemistry Maths or SL Further maths. They're also bringing in HL further maths which is harder than A2 further maths.
Liberal education my arse.
I did A Levels for a week. IB is so much harder.

But for HL Maths, (A level maths and half of further) individual IB subjects are (mostly) less in-depth than A level subjects.
However overall I think IB is more strenuous, and a more balanced qualification - due to TOK and EE and whatnot.
I don't do the IB, I do A-level but my friend does and the work he has to do in economics is way more in depth and harder than the A-level course and HL maths for the IB is around university level which is why not many people in England do it
