Students enrolled in IB classes may take the IB examination in May during spring semester. If students receive a score of 5, 6, or 7, many 4-year and community colleges may waive the equivalent course at the college level, thus awarding credit for passing IB scores. Some colleges award college credit for score of 3 or 4, but that decision varies by the institution.
Note: Students on Free or Reduced Lunch may receive a waiver to cover cost of fees. Please review the IB portion of this website for possible scholarship opportunities to fund IB testing costs.

● They are both great practice for the SAT because they test the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, in a way that makes sense for your grade level.
