Is strategy tester based on every ticks more accurate than "1 minute OHLC" ?

Do you know that MQL5 has event handling?

I think that yes, because working on all ticks is more precise, like working on every pixel of a sinusoïdal curve...

But is that true ? Thanks

I have coded a strategy that works well in 1 minute OHLC but I find it hard to port to a "OnTick" based strategy.

In real trading, can the 1 minute OHLC behavior be close to the one backtested by me ? Thanks
