Say you took like 5 AP Classes and got straight A's but got mainly 2's and 3's on the test? Would this be looked at as good or bad? OR If you took the same classes got C's but got 5's on the test? Thanks for your input

The Cs with 5s would look better. It also depends on how your peers have done. If no one got As, then maybe its just a hard class at your school. However, if everyone who got higher than you also got a 5, that shows that you slack off. On the other hand, if you got As but 2s and 3s, it either shows that your school is easy, or you are a lazy student. Again, it depends on how well your peers have done, whether they also got 2s and 3s or all 4s and 5s with the same grade as you.

I think if you got A's and got a 2 or 3 on the test, then it just shows that you had a bad teacher. I find it hard that a student who has a good teacher and got an A would get a 2 or 3 on the test.

If you got an A in a class but a 2 or a 3 on the AP exam, and most didnt take it, but those that did only got 2's or 3's, would it count against you? How much, if so?
