IB classes are for any student who wants to challenge him or herself with a higher-level course. Those students who have taken Honors level courses might be better prepared for the workload and challenges of an IB course, but if you are willing to work hard, you will do just fine.
Recap: Determining Whether AP vs IB Is a Better Fit for You
Taking either AP or IB classes will look very good on your college applications, as it shows you’re challenging yourself with college-level courses. There’s no real preference or benefit from doing one program or the other, as long as you do well in your chosen courses.
International Baccalaureate courses are widely recognized by the world’s leading universities because IB students learn more than a collection of facts.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program is different from other pre-university courses or assessments in that it is a comprehensive, integrated program that emphasizes international perspectives.
IB assessments include multiple, varied forms of external and internal assessment.
Recent studies on IB Diploma Program graduates at universities confirm that they perform well and have significantly higher grade point averages and higher graduation rates than students who did not complete the IB Diploma Program. Scores on IB assessments are also a significant predictor of university performance.
