    Anybody know whether or not IB students will be viewed in a more favourable opinion by universities when it comes to clearing?

    Or is it solely based on individual circumstances and various factors?

    Also are there any universities that particularly like IB students, Whether it be "unofficially known?"

    IB meaning International baccaleareate (2 years of doing it, still cant spell it like most).

    wow thats really good.... she must have had something exceptional about her... to amke up for 4+ points.

    Most of these unis tend to tell you "unofficially" that they like IB students cos they do more work blah blah....

    Just hoping that when it come to clearing... it will give an advantage
