Have done iGCSEs in England and now live abroad and deciding between 4 A Levels and IB.

There've been a lot of people saying A levels are the norm, preferred etc by unis for medicine but surely there are some that prefer IB and most view them the same?

My SL subjects would be Maths, English Lit/Geography, and Spanish ab initio
and HL Bio, Chem, and Eng lit/geography

I don't really love languages (as in modern foreign languages) and strugged with italian GCSE but didn't try very hard but all my other subjects I'll do in IB/A levels I'm predicted probably 8s or 9s in I think.

Should I do IB or A levels, the workload, difficulty etc is what I want to know. 6 IB subjects vs 4 A levels.
a
+ my school makes me do an EPQ considering IB has to do TOK AND EE I think this is fair so I'm fine doing it and view EPQ and TOK + EE similarly?
