I am currently in Year 11 and I have applied to different schools for A levels as my school is 100% committed to the IB now.
My choices are:
Economics as a reserve
HL- Economics, Biology and Chemistry
SL- Maths, English and German
I realise that the IB course tends to be more stressful, and I realise that the A levels have been made harder by removing AS but I feel that doing 3/4 subjects as oppose to 6 is much easier.
My question is whether the IB course is preferred by universities over the A levels and what are the advantages and disadvantages of both courses.

No, the IB is not preferred by universities - it is a great qualification and perfect for keeping your options open, but if you don't want to study six subjects, do A levels.
