I am considering taking either AP Comparative Government and Politics or AP European History next year but have not yet made up my mind. I am taking all honors classes next year and the only way they allow you to take these classes is as an elective which means I would have no study hall and have to take the AP exam in May. The lack of study hall would mean I would have very little free time at home as well. However I know that colleges like strong schedules and if an AP class helps me I'm willing to make the sacrifice, but only if necessary. So my question is- how much would taking an AP as a sophomore really help me? Is it worth my time? My other option is one semester of study hall, one of intro to art.
