It is better to get a B in an AP class then an A in an Honors class, just as it is better to get a B in an Honors class then an A in a College Prep class. When colleges look at your application, they want to know that you are challenging yourself and taking hard classes, because they are essentially looking to see how well you will do in their school. AP classes are considered to be tougher then Honors classes, because AP classes are introductory college classes that are taken during high school- that's why some colleges give credit for a high enough AP test score. However, Honors classes are really just advanced high school classes.

Grade reviews done for college entrance are done in an 'over-all' manner. The amount of honors classes taken will be noted and average GPA. Other classes will be looked at, and also that GPA. Individual classes are very seldom picked out to review grades, unless you are seeking to enter a very specialized field, and have taken many college prep classes in that area as honors classes. Most high schools do not offer enough 'specialized' prep classes for specific college interest.

Does it look better to get a B in an AP GT course or an A in an Honors course?

Definitely a B in an AP class.

Do colleges tend to select students who are in all honors with B's or a student who is in no honors but has all A's?

Course difficulty is certainly one of the factors that colleges look at. A's with a low course difficulty don't look very good compared to A's with a higher course difficulty. The degree of importance varies by college.

Does a c in honors class look better than A in regular?

Yes it does. Schools always would rather see that you are challenging yourself and not just sitting back and not working hard. ----------------- Usually, yes. However, from my experience, honors classes are only slighly harder than regular classes; however AP courses are significantly more challenging. So an A in a regular class could be better than a D or an F in an honors class, for example.

Can homeschooled students take AP classes?

Yes, home schooled students can take an AP class from a parent/teacher who has had a course syllabi approved by the college board.
