Thinking about Sixth Form options, just general thoughts, they both seem pretty good

My feeling the IB is a better option instead of the A-Level, when it come to preparing a student for university. The reason why I feel this it forces the student to take subjects in a variety of areas, like English, maths, and science. Whereas under the A-Level system students can pick there choices and thereby miss-out on needed skills like writing or math. Another advantage that the IB gives it prepares students to study abroad, especially if they consider studying at university in the United States, as the IB mirrors the preparation that students undertake in other countries. It is therefore my feeling the IB is a better option for students wanting to go to university and A-Levels are better suited for students who want to enter the workforce.

What do you want to do as a career? Then you can see whether you will need A levels or not.
