My entire curriculum is IB courses-why does it say my IB/AP courses aren't sufficient?

I take 6 IB classes, my only classes are IB. Why does it say for the schools I am applying to that I am not taking enough IB/AP courses when all of my courses are IB.

Just to clarify, did you enter the full number of IB classes you will take by the end of senior year? You’re supposed to enter your full course load (so that might be like 12 IB courses by the time you graduate)

Colleges will take your curriculum and compare it to how many AP/IB classes are at your school. If you're taking the most rigorous course load, they will notice, don't worry. I think you should put in 12 AP/IB classes for the chancing thing because that would be the AP equivalent of what you are doing.

But the courses I am taking now is a 2 year long course meaning I am only going to take 6.
