Your high school grades count. If you are missing a class in high school (i.e. physics) and then take it at a community college, you can show both transcripts and they will usually allow your college class to make up for you not taking it in high school.

But you cannot submit your college transcript as a substitute for your high school transcript. If your high school grades were low, your equivalence score will be low.

yeah well if you think that you have no chance with your high school grades then the other option would be doing good on the entry exam ...or is there another option?

If you want to apply to Government schools then the following won't really matter, but if you're thinking about Shifa or Private medical colleges in Pakistan, then read on:

If you take SAT II's then you don't need to take the Entrance Exam. Score 700 or better on the SAT II's and you'll significantly increase your chances of admission.

Taking the entrance test will be a lot harder. So far only one foreigner has ever passed the Shifa Entrance exam, and I don't know about the AKU one. The low equivalence score will do you more harm for government schools than it will for Private colleges.

Sup Yas daddy! hey bro, dont tell me your going to COD for a year, man I thought we were going to Pakistan together for admissions... Alright talk to ya at school...

I would personally suggest that you should at least try to get in, because you have all your requirements fulfilled...Then, if you dont, come back to the states and go to a community college. Its all about your luck with the IBCC, and your performance on the entrance test/SATII's

I am currently in highschool but i have taken some college classes through the College Now program (Sociology,psychology,business). My professor was employed by a community college.
I wanted to ask if it would be a good idea to bring my college transcript.

yes, you should bring your college transcript. there isn't any reason not to bring it...
