I am a Brazilian citizen studying at the American School of Milan. Due to the fact that my family and I are constantly on the move, I haven't always been able to take the classes I wanted to. Although I'm a full IB diploma student, I'm taking standard instead of higher-level math. Nevertheless, my SAT scores and math teacher recommendations are likely to demonstrate my strong ability in math. Will not taking higher-level math be a serious disadvantage?
