Hi, I'm new here. This may or may have been asked before.

What do you think is the best program to prepare for studies in engineering? I'm interested in doing chemical engineering in college. Would I benefit more from doing IB or A-levels in high school?

I'm pursuing my studies in either the US or the UK. Thanks!

Really doesn't matter at all.

A levels are easier. If you just want to get the grades and don't care about "stretching yourself" then just do A levels. it is also more narrow and in-depth than IB which is good for engineering because all you need to know is maths and science.

If you know what you want to do then go for a levels, its not easier to get into unis with the IB so don't worry about that
