Pre-clinical medicine: Do you prefer A-levels or the IB?
A-levels and the International Baccalaureate are both eligible qualifications for entry to our undergraduate degrees. We do not weight either of these qualifications as ‘better’ than the other, since both are eligible for entry, and all applications are considered very carefully on their individual merits.The success rates for students applying with the IB and students applying with A-levels are broadly similar, and that the choice of qualification plays no part in the selection criteria for our courses. We would advise students to select the qualification which they feel best offers the teaching style from which they would most benefit.
