In this white paper we set out to compare two popular curricula, the International Baccalaureate and the British A Level programme to examine how UK universities treat applicants from each.
Our analysis examines the following questions as part of our wider mission to improve how young people make appropriate decisions for their futures:
- Are admissions decisions made by universities affected by their perception of the IB?
- Do universities discriminate against, or in favour of, IB applicants?
- Is there any consistency on a course or university level?
- How will UK universities treat the career-related programme?
