I'm gonna be a senior this year and i have a question, i am going to be taking several ap classes (spanish, calc bc, physics, chem, english) so i can get experience in the course work since i will be retaking most of them for my required majors.
I have already taken ap us, euro and calc ab, and have gotten 4,4,5 on these exams respectively.
I know that colleges want to see you take the exams for the ap classes, and they really see if you took them or not in your fresh/soph/jun/ year, but in the senior year, they can't make a decision in your admission because you're already admitted!
I know that if I get AP English credit it will do me no good.
AP Calculus credit (already got a 5 on the ab) will get me nothing in college (take it again)
I WILL take spanish credit (because i hate spanish)
Physics i will have to retake because it'll be part of my major.
AP Us, and AP Euro i'll take credit.
But why should I spend the money on the exams if i'm going to retake them? Its expensive, redundant, and means nothing to me...

I have absolutely no clue what you're talking about BUT I saw for some colleges that if you get a 4 or 5 on the AB exam, they give you, say 4 credits, but BC is worth 8...Hm...Or does it even matter. I have almost no clue about college.

If you feel good about the material, there's no reason to not take the exams. Maybe you will *want* to take the more advanced classes and not retake, or you may get elective credit. It's always easier to decide later what you want to do after you've taken them and you may regret not taking the exams otherwise.

If the colleges you're aiming for don't give credit, then don't bother. It's not worth the time or the ridiculous amount of money.

At my school, not only are AP exams required if you take the class, but you also have to pay for them!

that's what I mean, if i take the AP classes I'm required to take the exam. But since its senior year, what can they do to me to screw me up by may?

At my school, If you're in the AP class but don't take the test, your AP status is revoked on the transcript. Your college is going to see this, and might revoke your ammittance if you do not keep with your current schedule.

i see, i guess i'll have to look into my colleges' policies regarding ap credit, because i do not want to waste 400 dollars on something that will not even be used...
