Hi!I'm a Year 9 student who's wondering about their future :P.I'm currently exceeding my expected level (so I'm at around a level 8) and I've been given some GCSE and A-level stuff before (not a lot of it though), so my predicted grades are around A*/9.This means that I currently find school boring as far as the subjects are concerned, and I've been thinking about switching to the IB curriculum. Since I will be 15, it would be the best time to enrol, but I'm not sure whether I should.I think of myself as a jack of all trades, with good grades in all subjects, but I also like knowing the subjects I'm talking about in depth.What should I do?!Thanks in advance!
Gcse vs ib? Watch

If your asking whether you should do the IB course instead of GCSEs I would advice strongly against it as both prepare you well and GCSEs at year 10/11 give you a qualification whilst the Pre IB program does not.
After you finish your GCSEs your choices are between IB and A-levels. As far as I've been told IB is for more well rounded students and A levels are for if you want to go into a specific field of study when you go to Uni.
Hope this helped
