I was wondering what the difference is between the two courses,in terms of the contents and syllabus.
For example:What do you learn in the A Level course,that you don't in the IB?

I don't do biology so I can't say much about that subject but for chemistry, I would love to do a proper comparison between the syllabi of different exam boards and examinations one day, but as far as I can tell from a cursory scroll-through on a typical A Level and the IB syllabus, there's at least a 90% overlap when compared with the Core IB topics. There might be differences in the applications that are stressed on but they're mostly the same thing.
However, a large portion of what's included in the IB Options is completely absent from the A Level syllabus. I took A Levels so it's easier for me to tell what's in IB but not in A Level than the other way round.Last edited by scykei; 16-08-2016 at 02:39.
