Hi !
I’m currently doing my igcses including bio, at triple science.
How different is igcse biology to ib sl biology?
I’ve also heard ib sl biology is difficult. To what extent is that true?
Does doing the triple award help? Thanks!

Honestly, the jump from IGCSEs to A-level/IB is always big... however I've heard that SL bio isn't too bad (some people argue that it is the easiest IB science) especially when aiming for a 7, because the curve is lower, since most of the better biologist tend to do higher level. The truth is if you can get an 8/9 in IGCSE bio then with hard work and good time management you could get a 6/7 in bio SL.

Good luck!
