AP / IB Exams

More and more high schools are switching over to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, which provides students with a global curriculum that prepares them for an increasingly connected world. The IB program is nonetheless comparatively little-known to most students and parents, especially when compared with the College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) classes. For students who have the opportunity, IB classes offer a richer and deeper educational experience and allow students to show colleges that they’ve been properly prepared for the depth and breadth of coursework that they’ll face in their undergraduate years. In addition, most colleges who accept AP coursework for credit will accept IB coursework under similar conditions.

Good grades are not only to asses your university application, they do play a major role in the overall admission process. But with academic rigor comes challenge, and AP / IB exams are harder than typical tests. Westhill Academy is here to support you reach your potential. Our experienced coaches have designed an intensive course to thoroughly prepare students for the exams.
