• In terms of taking you to university, which one is best? Well, we would say that depends on what type of student you are and what goals you have. According to the findings of the University Admissions Officers Report 2017, the International Baccalaureate diploma programme is better at encouraging a “global outlook” in students, while A-levels give students more “in-depth” expertise.
