Which is better to be accepted into colleges outside of my state and for scholarships, Advanced Placement classes or Dual Credit courses? Are they valued the same by admissions and scholarship committees?

Through out my high school career I have chosen dual credit course or advance placement classes. The teachers were the same for both. The college credit was automatic without the burden of an assessment to determine if I should receive college credit. Also they both had the same point value so I my GPA was getting the same point value boost. However, as I have started to complete more applications outside the state, I don't see where they are asking about dual credit or honors classes. All the questions I have come across have ask about AP classes. So which is better to take? #advance-placement #dual-credit

Do AP classes really help your college applications?

Will having Advanced Placement courses really help my college applications? Do you think getting a B in an AP class will look better or worse to people evaluating your application? Is an AP class really worth it? #college #college-applications #ap #advance-placement

Can you take an AP exam without taking the class?

I honestly am not interested in AP I am more interested in IB however I do want to utilize the time that I can to accumulate as much college credit as possible. So while I am in sophomore year, still in pre-IB is it possible, with study, to take an AP exam and maybe score high enough to get credit for it? #high-school-classes #ap #high-school-students #sophomore #advance-placement
