I'm in the summer break, and it's the dreaded break for all 'normal' students. I'm going to high-school in September. For the reason I'm posting this, is because I live in Canada, my academic choices are slightly more limited than the United State's system. Unfortunately for me, I was not well rounded enough in the 7th grade to apply for the International Baccalaureate program, my school is famous for. The school, also I'm quite sure does not offer AP courses either. I don't want to live my academic life as a 'normal' student and face the consequences- A community college. What can I do? Are the AP and IB the only choices I have? And is it that hard to take AP out of the school?
