IB or A-levels. Which is harder?Watch
You will also see that everyone has different views and different programmes fit different people.
IB is WAYYYYYY harder to get 7s in all 3 of those as opposed to getting top grades at A level. Around 4-8% of students get 7s in those subjects at IB, as opposed to 30% getting As at A level. Then you get doubly screwed over in university admissions if you are offered a place on the condition of achieving 7s in all of those subjects.
Well, for Maths, chem and Physics

alevel subjects are in more depth well u cannot say IB is that easy but comparatively alevel is much harder u can compare any particular alevel subjects with IB subjects like alevel futher math or chemistry with ib math or chemistry. case is not that students give more subjects in IB if one is arguing that more giving more subjects make an examination board harder so u can also say that olevel or igcse are much more harder than alevel truly thats not a valid point which u all are making.alevel students give more time towards studies rather than IB students Conclusively alevel is very much harder tha IB
Having gone to a school where it was IB and A Levels being run simultaneously I don't think there's anybody who didn't feel the IB was tougher. The workload is certainly much higher and also includes a whole extra-curricular workload with volunteering, the extended essay and so on. My friends who did A Levels had loads of free periods in a week to do their work in, whereas on the IB side we often had lessons during lunchtime in order to squeeze in 6 subjects worth of lessons plus TOK. They spent their weekends relaxing, whereas I spent my weekend folding smelly clothes in the charity shop for 'service' and then going running for 'action' and after school I had to do even more stuff for 'creativity' to get my hours. It was exhausting and quite miserable.
