Difference between International baccalaureate diploma and GCSE ...?Watch
What are the advantages/ disadvantages of both? Since I'm planning to study in the US, which one would be more useful later on? Is there any other programme I should be considering on taking?
If you are trying to compare the IB and A levels there are tons of comparisons already out there so you should google.
Basically for IB you have to take maths, two languages, a humanity, a science, an extra subject usually an art. Plus you need sport/skill/service as well as extended essays. Whereas for A levels you only need three subjects most commonly and they can be all arts or all science or mix etc.
American universities generally want all round student compared to British ones so you'd be better off doing IB if you are set on American unis.
Also people often say if you're sure about what you want to do A levels are better because you only need to do related subjects in my case two maths and two sciences but if you're unsure then IB will keep your choices wide open.
