Should i do ib??? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm feeling a bit conflicted on whether I should do IB or A-Level, what's putting me off is the fact that I've seen several people say it's not worth the hard work and effort, and that they're struggling...
    If I take IB I'd do:
    HL French HL English HL Biology
    SL History SL Global Politics and SL Maths Studies
    My GCSE Predicted Grades are all As, except French and Religious Studies, which I'm predicted A*s in, I know doing IB is not all about academic ability but at the end of the day one of the things I want to get out of it is a good score and to get into a good University.
    I'm generally organised and get things done, but I'd hate to be overloaded with work and not have time to relax and have fun, so is it much harder than A-Levels? Should I do A-Levels instead???

    They're a business that prioritise profits.
    They've cost me the equivalent of a car in remarks and resits.
    Also university offers are weird and you'll meet one requirement and not another or get the same average but not what they exactly asked for in one randome subject then end up on your sofa for a year.
