    ok i just had an open evening and i’m unsure whether the ib course or the a level course is right for me

    for a levels i think i’d want to take physics, maths and possibly chemistry at higher levels as well as psychology

    for IB i’m thinking of taking english, spanish, psychology, (HL) maths, HL physics, HL chemistry

    so based on the subjects i’m pretty sure i want to study (physics, psychology, possibly chem), which course would be more suited ?? like IB sounds good because i don’t want to cut off english, spanish etc but the work load seems exceptionally high especially for further maths which i’m aiming to take, though IB seems like it offers more opportunities post 18 because of the broad variety of subjects

    side note; im predicted 7-9 grades across my subjects at GCSE also SORRY this is so long thank you for reading
