Okay, so my school is being very biased when I ask them for advice which is very frustrating. I seriously want to pursue a career in medicine but I am conflicted on whether I should do the IB or just stick to A-levels. I am aiming high for uni, and have received 7A*'s and 4 A's in my recent mocks.
If I do A-levels, then I will do Bio, Chem, Maths and Latin.
If I do the IB then I will do Chem, Bio at higher level, and Economics (I don't really want to do it but its the only sensible subject for me to do in that group) and English at standard. I am undecided about Latin and Maths, but I am leaning towards Latin higher level and Maths standard.
Also, how 'hard' is higher level compared to normal A-levels?
Could you share your IB stories with me? What do you honestly think about the subjects you are doing? Any warnings? What is the better option for medicine? Is it hard to manage your time?

I'm sorry if this sounded like a mess, I'm just a little stressed and unsure of what to do.
Thank you
