Students and parents have put much emphasis on standardized tests (SAT/ACT) when planning for US university admissions. In fact, high school results are as important as SAT/ACT scores (or even more important!). School grades are the key indicator of student’s academic strength which is the first consideration of the top universities in admission. Have students picked the most rigorous courses? Do they have a balanced course selection? Have they shown a consistence performance in school? A right strategy in choosing high school curriculum will definitely help students to discover and develop their potentials, manage their study more easily, and to enhance their chance of getting into the most selective US universities.
This seminar aims at enabling parents to help their children to select the most suitable curriculum and courses for a better chance of getting into top universities in the US.

International Baccalaureate (IB) course selection strategy Will IB courses give students an edge in being admitted to top universities? Are Advance Placement (AP) courses worth the effort?
