Hello everyone,

If I have 7 AP scores but they are all 3s except for a 4 in AP Lang and a 4 in the Calculus AB subsection (but a 3 overall in Calculus BC), should I:

1) submit none of the AP scores and run the risk of the admissions officers asking why I have 7 AP classes on my freshman - junior year transcript but took none of the tests even though I can clearly afford to take them / have the school pay for them

2) submit only the 4s and run the risk of the admissions officers thinking I might have failed my other 5 AP tests, so I am hiding it

or 3) submit all the 3s and 4s and be transparent about it even though it looks bad on my application so the admissions officers will at least not think I failed any of my APs

Also, do I have to send in an official score report for APs by the application deadline, or just the subject tests and SAT/ACT?

Thanks in advance!

I would submit only the scores of 4. If someone asks, say you didn't want to get credit for those classes and were hoping to explore those subjects more in college. Send everything by the deadline.

If your SAT/ACT and subject scores are good, I think you should be okay.

I have a 34 on the ACT, but a 740 on the subject test (Math 2). Would you recommend I send in the 740?

yep send the subject test score, along with the ACT
