We are coming down to the home stretch. I need to decide whether to HL in Math. Our high school is asking us to focus on either AP Calculus BC or IB Math HL not both because the time commitment does not favor doing well on both tests at once. USNA Admission page states that the IB program provides admission favor, hooray for bonus points. Yet Calculus BC allows students to validate Calc 2 and 3. I think I made a mistake by selecting to HL in Math. Are the placement tests at the beginning of the year more difficult to validate out of Calculus. I do not want to retake another year of calculus just because a college. I hope this makes sense.
