    APs (US Advanced Placements) hav ethe advantage for candidates that they are transparent. All past exams are availale, for free. With markings. Levels in the AP, from what I have seen, appear to be a bit harder (but gneerally you do fewer subjects), and they are a lot cheaper to do.
    Do you think the value of Advanced Placements would be ecognised by UK universities?

    hey! yeah i had that debate too-- but i was told that in the UK, the IB means more then the AP certificates.. if u were going to the USA, then yeah teh APs would be a good idea, however for UK (i wanna go there too!!) the IB is somethign "special".. its better then the AP, its more work, and gives higher standards then the AP. so yeah, if ur thinking of going to the UK , then id go for the IB, they seem to prefer it... another-good- thing is the normal A-levels, they are also more highly considered then the AP.. (all of this is according to my career guidance person thingie at school, adn according to the unnis that ive talked to).
Do you think parents should charge rent?
