I have an opportunity to switch to the IB programme next year for year 11, and leave the A-Level system. which is better for acquiring a scholarship in US colleges because I have pretty much given up on trying to find scholarships in the UK because they are next to impossible.

A levels are higher qualifications than what they have in the us. They’d be more impressive on an application. Ik in Canada you can get into a top uni with only two a levels as they’re considered significantly harder

i have heard alot of people say that the IB diploma gives students a more global outlook and helps them deal with pressure and experience different cultures. however even though A-levels give a more in-depth perspective to any one subject, they are purely 100% academic.
