I'm planning on applying to top UCs (UCB, UCLA, UCSD). I'm wondering how much dropping AP English Lit after taking English Honors courses previously hurt me. If I drop it, I will definitely take a shot at the AP English Lit exam to get college credit.
If my SAT II (around 700s) and SAT (around 1800) scores are bad, should I take this course or drop it to try to improve on those? Will taking AP English Lit help me on the SAT (especially CR, Writing)?
Another question: Is the AP English Lit exam easy to pass? If you major in math/sciences, will passing the exam exempt you from College English courses?
