    I failed my A Levels last year, i got a C in Mathematics and 3 Es in Biology,Chemistry, Physics respectively which took me 2 years to complete in Chittagong, Bangladesh.

    I had an aim of studying MBBS, but I still havent lost hope.

    Will it be a wise decision to switch to start studying for the International Baccalaureate??
    Or is the IB more complicated than A Levels??

    I WISHED to study MBBS in EUROPE/ASIA OR Australia but they all require A Levels or IB.

    I also had a wish to study in CANADA in the University of Toronto Or Unversity of British Columbia Or McGill University to major in Life Sciences (Biology/Biochemistry) those also require A Levels/IB or anything equivalent.

    I dont want to do foundation course as it wont lead me to any MBBS degree or it will be beyond my expense and also i think foundation course wont get me enrolled into any of the 3 Canadian Unversities Ive mentioned above.


    So as I failed my A Levels will it be a wise decision to study IB in Canada or where I live in Bangladesh?

    IB is more difficult than A levels.

    The IB is much more difficult than A-Levels, take it from someone who switched from IB to A-Level.

    Don't switch to the IB, you'll probably regret it. If you failed your A-levels, then you are much more likely to fail the IB.

    IB is much more challenging than A-levels. To get an IB diploma, not only must you do 6 subjects, but you must factor in time for your extended essay, ToK and CAS. Time management and motivation is an essential.
    If I were you, I would re-sit my A-levels rather than start a more challenging course.
