    I have been told that the IB-A level conversion is based off your results on you higher level subjects.
    7 = A*
    6 = A
    5 = B
    And that your SL subjects count as an AS level.

    34 is a very good score actually, and will get you to many universities. Some of the most competitive courses require 34 points and above.

    4A*s does not equal 45/45. At my current uni, I know quite a few people with 4A*s, but only one with 45/45. Available statistics corroborate this. On the other hand, given that the IB average is 30 points, I think that 35-37/38 is equals AAA at A-Level, aligning with most UK universities' entry requirements. Just my two cents.
