Hi, my name is greg and I will be attending Wharton (UPENN) in the fall. Initially i decided to sign up for the AP Macro test under the assumption that, with a 5, i would get waived from my macro requirement. Just now, I realized that the material covered on the test is far less than that covered in a macro class at Penn. Considering that this will be what i get my degree in, it seems almost foolish to take the test and opt to skip such a fundamental class. Anyway, now i am wondering what to do with a test that I paid good money for. I've heard that i can't get a refund, so is there a way I can "sell" it to someone? If i dont show up, does that mean it doesnt get graded or do i get a 0 (or a 1). Any help would be appreciated.

if you don't show up it doesn't get graded.

Just cancel the test. It will look better than not showing up. I don't think it's transferable but you could always call them and ask.

Definitely take the class instead. I don't know that you can get AP credit for a class required by your major anyway.

Go talk to the AP Coordinator at your school. There might be a somebody on standby for the macro test that will "buy" the test from you. Also, sometimes, schools "sell" extra tests to each other to take care of standby students.
