I just read on another CC thread that some schools do not consider SAT II scores more than 3 yrs old. For instance, an outstanding Math SAT II taken in 8th grade is no longer acceptable 4 years later, when the student applies as a high school senior. The student must retake the test and submit a new score. It occurred to me that there might be some related questions about AP scores. So:
1) Are there any colleges that put a similar limit on the time validity of AP scores when considered for AP credit? Say a student obtained an AP score at the end of 9th grade. Will that score be given the same consideration for AP credit as more recent scores when the student enrolls in college 4 (or more) years later? Are there any colleges that might disregard such an early score when awarding AP credit?
2) Are there any written or non-written rules regarding consideration of such early scores (and classes) as proof of academic rigor? If yes, at what schools?
