Veronica’s Answer

I can't really speak for AP classes, but I did take mostly IB classes in high school. In my experience, the IB classes were very rigorous and I definitely felt challenged. If you can do well in IB classes, you should be able to handle earlier college courses fine. You can also take the IB exams and if you score above a 4, you can earn college credit. This was the policy almost five years ago, I am not sure how it is now.

My high school didn't offer any IB classes so I really can't comment on those. We did however have an assortment of AP classes (US History, English, etc.). Each AP class had an exam at the end of the school year and if you got a score of a 4 or 5 on the exam (5 being the highest) then you got college credit in that subject area. My recollection was it was up to 3 credits of intro level coursework. I recommend talking with your teacher(s) / guidance counselor to find out more.
