    1. What was the name of the psych class?
    2. You don't really need history "credit", but there should be an option for AP credit. If not, just list it like a normal course, as it will show up on your transcript accordingly.
    3. "Speeding ticket". Most people know what that is. Providing details/excuses will probably hurt worse than help. If it was a while ago, list that you have no points against your license currently and have not had another incident since then.

    Good luck!

    Go for it. If AMCAS decides to change it, so be it.

    I don't know. I'll leave this one for someone else.

    Be as specific as possible. As I've heard from a few authority figures, "if left in the dark I will always assume the worst." In any event a speeding ticket won't be anything to worry about, so no point in shying away from it. Keep it straightforward.

    The exact same as your official transcript has it listed. If there is no grade at all, then leave it blank. If it says "P" or "CR" or anything else, enter that instead.

    I listed two psych courses as biology ones even though my transcripts say they are psych and AMCAS accepted that.

    For the credit hours I put the hours of the class that I would have had to have taken if the AP class didn't replace it... I also listed the grade as an EXM but they corrected me so no biggy if you mess up.
