Which is harder A levels or IB?

The IB is considerably harder than A-levels. In the IB, students must study six subjects plus extras whereas with A-levels students study three subjects. With so much workload, it is no surprise that many students taking the IB end up with relatively low grades (24-30 points).

Are A levels easier than IB?

Can you get into Oxford with B’s?

Yes! Just about all of my friends got Bs and Cs in their GCSEs and got in with equivalents of A*s at A level. However, only one of us got all A* grades; the rest got the odd A/B at A level but got in anyway through having sat the Oxbridge exam pre-A level. days, top grades at 3 A-levels are needed.
