If you AP test out of first year bio and are a bio major and the school (known for certain weeder courses) lets you skip that bio class, is there any reason to take the first year bio? Some advisors say, "skip it and avoid the weeder situation" others say med schools will want to see it.
D is not certain about med school yet, still deciding. I say why waste a year in bio 1 when you are not required and it is a major weed out course, just move on to upper div bio and learn new things, if she applies to med school, any of hte upper div bio should suffice as a year of bio. Pros/cons? Does that first year or bio realy prep you for uppder div? D got an AP 5 from an outstanding teacher in HS
