A Levels: Study the subjects you love IB: Breadth and depth

Who should study A Levels?
Those who have strengths and interests in
just a few key areas, those who prefer depth
of study rather than breadth.

Who should study the IB?
The IB is well-received at both UK and
international universities, and offers much
more breadth of study than A Levels as you
study a much wider range of subjects. It will
therefore suit those who have strengths and
interests in a broad range of subjects.

What do you study?
Three or four subjects in most cases.

What do you study?
Six subjects from the IB curriculum alongside
the Theory of Knowledge, an Extended Essay
and CAS, a programme of Creativity, Activity
and Service.
What are the entrance requirements?
You will need IELTS 6.5+ and at least 50
points at GCSE or equivalent.
