I'm currently a Junior enrolled in AP English Language trying to get into UPenn. This is my first year taking AP Classes, so I'm trying to rack up as much credit as possible (AP Environmental, Chemistry, United States History, Human Geography, Psychology, English Language). Should I also take the AP English Literature exam? I do pretty well when it comes to literature, I got a 720 on the subject test for it. I'm confident that I will pull a 5 on the English Language exam, but I'm not too sure about the Literature one... Should I sign up for it either way, and see how it goes? Worst comes to worst, I'm taking AP English Literature next year, anyway.
The only real positive factor to this would be to demonstrate my skills with the English Language, getting two fives, or a five and a four on both English exams. Would a 720 on the English Literature exam equate to a 5 on the AP Exam? Is the exam worth the $100? Would it be worth taking the exam, just to be able to say that I took 7 APs Junior year? Should I do any additional readings? I'm already self-studying 3 APs (Human Geo, Environmental, Psychology), would adding Literature be too much of a hassle? I can barely organize my time, as it is (I got a C in APUSH last semester, never opened my book... :/ *now, I have an A*)
Thank you, all!
