Ans: Hello Jyothish,
To begin with, thank you for contacting us. I am happy to hear that your son is studying the IGSCE curriculum and will be completing his 10th grade. To answer your question first, I would like to let you know that the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and the AS Level, both have their own advantages. Nevertheless, your son’s interests, strengths, as well as the prerequisites of the universities he intends pursuing his Master's degree at play a key role in his decision. I would like to tell you that owing to the subject-oriented approach provided by AS Levels, students’ can concentrate extensively on the subjects opted for by them. IBDP, on the contrary, entailing a range of disciplines in addition to the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and Extended Essay (EE), provides a comprehensive curriculum, in turn, fostering an all-encompassing academic learning process. You would be glad to know that both these credentials are globally accepted in order to secure admission to foreign universities. Although the IBDP may be favored by certain universities owing to its comprehensive approach, the degree of information provided by AS Levels may be valued equally by others. In order to make an educated choice that best matches his academic abilities as well as future ambitions, I would recommend that your son conducts an all-round study on the universities he intends studying at and looks into their unique prerequisites.
