Why should you take classes
that have more homework and harder tests?

Because getting OUT of college
is harder
than getting IN to college.
Caspary, K. (2011). Postsecondary enrollment patterns of IB certificate and diploma candidates from U.S. high schools. Research Brief. Menlo Park, CA: SRI International.
67% of IB students graduate from college in 4 years.

36% of NON-IB students graduate in 4 years.
Because sometimes getting in is ALSO competitive.
Average acceptance rate of IB students is 22% higher
than non-IB students.
