So here’s the deal: at my school we have a program called global which is basically international Baccalaureate. I’ve been in the program for a year (I’m a rising junior) and because I’m in this program I cannot take ap classes. However I am taking honors bio and honors history and because I am in this program, our teachers are encouraging us to take the AP exam at the end of the year because we learn a lot of the same things that AP students will learn. For example, I am doing the same summer work that my fellow AP peers are doing. So basically it’s AP but called honors because I’m in global (IB program). A lot of my friends have told me that it’s looks better to stay in global, take the hardest classes that global has to offer (which I am doing) and then leave senior year and take AP’s. So should I stay in global or leave? Does it look better to take AP’s or to take honors and get a certificate in the global program. PS: I am taking the AP exams if I stay in global honors because the teachers teach the same curriculum and they want us to take them in may.
Please let me know!
