Comparison of A-level and International Baccalaureate

An article publish in July 2016 provides some ground for comparison of the International Baccalaureate qualification with traditional A-Levels.

“The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) has developed a new tariff system which gives the International Baccalaureate an A-level equivalence for the first time. An IB score of 38 points out of a maximum of 45 is deemed to be equivalent to a staggering five A grades at A-level. Oxford and Cambridge typically ask for 40 points which equates to five-and-half A grades. The new tariff will raise the prominence of the IB, which requires pupils to study both the humanities.”

The table below [1] provides further comparison between the complete IB score and its A-Level equivalent.
