I'm a sophomore in high school and I want to pursue the IB diploma. I was wondering to what is the main difference between IB Literature SL and IB Language and Literature SL, which one do colleges value higher, and is one harder than the other?
I realize that IB gives college credit and most universities and higher education institutions accept the IB exams as credit but I don't understand how much it can take off of college.
I want someone I can depend on who can tell me how an IB education works, what are the benefits, is the time that it takes up worth it, etc.
I will be receiving my IB diploma in July and I worked very hard for it. As I was applying for colleges I wondered, how useful is it? Since it is a rigorous program and not many students take the IB, does it give me any benefits or advantages in comparison to an average student?
