This year I am taking the AP Calculus BC exam, which gives a Calc AB and BC score. So, will this technically count as two exams when considering who qualifies for AP Scholar, AP Scholar w/ Honor, etc.?

I don't think so. Its AP CREDITS that matter. AP Calculus BC is only 1 credit, and there are no such things as 2 credit APs.

Well, I took both AP Calculus AB and BC this year because my school is on block scheduling and thus the material covered in these two classes is entirely different.
I don't know if that matters, but I thought I'd just say that.

your school is probably just teaching bc-exclusive material in the bc block
there is considerable overlap on the ap ab and bc tests (since bc gets an ab subscore)

what do you need to be an AP scholar?

The award of AP Scholar is granted to students who receive grades of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams on full-year courses (or the equivalent). Exams that are only considered a half-year are Computer Science A, Environmental Science, Human Geography, Comparative Government and Politics, U.S. Government and Politics, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Physics C: Electricity & Magnetism, Physics C: Mechanics, Psychology, and Statistics.

I take Computer Science A... why is it considered a half-year course? In my school, it is a FULL year.. and we do cover some AB topics.. we just aren't tested on them

There's a Computer Science AB exam, it probably covers more material. Some schools, Samrtaleck, take 1 year courses and stretch them to two (like US History) and half year courses and stretch them to one year (like Statistics at my school next year).

OK thanks, it just doesn't seem fair that I"m taking 3 AP exams and won't be an AP scholar... b/c it will only count as two and half exams, right? (AP US History, AP English Language, AP Computer Science A)
Since the CompSci A is a half year, i couldn't get AP Scholar, right?
