Hi, I'm a sophomore, and I took two AP classes this past year: AP Computer Science AB and AP Spanish Language.

I received a 3 on APCS AB and a 4 on Spanish Language. How good are those scores? Do schools automatically see your AP scores?

My mom wants to know, she thinks these are horrible. Please be brutally honest :-/

What you need to keep in mind is AP stands for Advanced Placement and are potentially used for credit when entering college. Most selective colleges require a 4 or 5 on AP exams to allow credit for certain core courses. Mostly state universities will accept 3 or better for credit.
