    Im extremely confused about the course i should take. At first, i was extremely set on A levels. I now have been extremely blessed to have beem scholarships for both courses. As happy as i am, i am extremely confused. Im afraid to do IB because i was so used to the exam based courses, but on the other hand, i know it will bring me out of my comfort zone. What do i do?

    Don't make things harder for yourself by doing the IB, universities set higher entry tariffs for IB than they do for A-levels even though IB is harder. Taking the IB is a tactically foolish way of showing everyone how smart you are. I've seen many students seduced by the International Baccalaureate only to mess up their UCAS applications. IB is all risk for little reward.

    A-levels are more flexible too, just choose which subjects you want without any complusion to do certain courses which you don't like or aren't good at.
