So here's my issue.. I'm currently in ap world history and.. Lets just say im maintaining a passing grade.. I'm seriously considering dropping down to standard or honors next semester. History is my favorite subject, it always has been. But this year i've dreaded going to the class. I don't feel that i'm really gaining anything from it because we're going through the material VERY fast and it feels like a waste of time because i dont feel i'm taking anything away from the class like I should be. I've always been and A-B student, especially in history, but i've been lucky to stay in the C-D range this semester in this class.
I'm in four dual enrollment classes, and i find those easier most of the time than this class.. Maybe my work ethic isn't good enough. But like i said I really dread attending this class, and i've always loved history, it used to be the best part of my day.
So I'm not sure what this will do to my GPA or how this will look on my transcript. I'm still not sure how I can't keep my grade up in an AP class when I have A's in all my dual enrollment classes.
If I did drop the course could I just self study and take the AP exam in May? That way I didn't feel like I totally wasted a semester..
Sorry if this is too long (I have a tendancy to rant, especially when I don't know what to do about something)
