Was really set on doing the IB next year (I'm in year 11 at the mo); I really don't know what sort of career I want to go into (am considering medicine) and I thought it sounded like the best choice for me because I enjoy all the subjects I am currently doing a lot and I don't want to limit my options for Uni- My careers adviser agreed with me and said it would be perfect for me. There is only one college in my area of England that does the IB (so would be a 40 min bus journey), but I don't really mind about the travelling and was quite looking forward to the IB.
BUT I was looking through some TSR forums about the IB and a lot of people said that they regretted doing it and think that they should have done A-Levels. So now I'm re-considering.
The subjects I would do in the IB are:
English (H), French (S), Psycology (S), Biology (H), Chemistry (H) and Maths (S)
I'm predicted As and A*s in my GCSEs- the subjects I am doing currently are English, Maths and Further Maths, French, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, RE and Textiles.
Anyone got anything that will reassure me that I'm thinking of doing the right thing?

You're more likely to meet a uni offer with A Levels. IB offers rely on too many variables.
