    Hi, I'm about to start my first year of sixth form and I have a choice between:
    A Levels - Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry
    IB - HL Maths, Physics, German, SL English, Geography, Chemistry
    The IB course I have an offer for is my dream programme (apart from English but I'll survive and I'm attracted to the breath it gives anyway) however the sixth form is very new and not as experienced as the sixth form that I have an offer to do A Levels at, which is 'the best state sixth form in the UK'
    After sixth form I would like to study a astrophysics/natural science/geology degree most probably abroad in Germany, Swizterland, Canada or the Netherlands? I will still apply for some UK unis but it just doesn't really appeal to me.
    The CAS element of IB isn't a problem as I already do enough extracurricular to cover that.
    Is it worth doing IB since it is very stressful?? I am a very bright student (12 A/A*s at GCSE) but is 40+ points actually achievable? Most universities abroad accept A Levels anyway and I'd do an online German course at the Goethe-Institut to cover the language requirements if I did A Levels.
    Is the IB for me???
