How does applying to a uni work if you have a mix of academic and IB courses?

So I’m not sure if I’m missing something here, but what would you do if one of the required courses was taken outside of IB (for example in my school you can only take 2 sciences as IB courses, so the third would have to be taken as a normal academic course). In general, if you had a mix of academic and IB courses, would you be forced to apply only with your converted marks? Thanks!

  1. Doesn’t matter. They only look at the course code, so only 4U/M courses. It doesn’t matter if it was taken under the IB curriculum, it’s still treated the same as any other academic course.

  2. If you are an Ontario student you’re going to be applying with your converted marks anyway so it doesn’t matter if it’s an IB course or not. The universities will see the standard course code and the corresponding OSSD mark. IB only counts for transfer credit or advanced standing, not admissions.
