AP Class as senior

So would taking AP Bio and AP Art History as a senior be of any help at all when applying to colleges? I mean you take the AP test at the end of the year and college admission letters are sent within the first half of the year before you can even start preparing for the AP tests at the end of the year. So basically, is it worth it to take those specific AP classes as a senior and if taking any AP classes as a senior helps at all...Thanks

    It helps to show course rigor and it'll help with your transition to college to not take an entirely blow-off senior year.

    That being said, you want a semi-easy year. AP Bio and AH are a lot of busy work. Just be prepared.

    What caliber of schools are you applying to?

    if the schools you are applying to will accept you without the ap class, dont take the ap class

    know whether you have to take them to get in

    Take the AP class because you will get into a college and may be able to pass out of some subjects with just the AP credit you may earn on the test, if you get a 3 or above. Plus, who wants to be in classes with seniors who barely pass classes? I took AP English just to get away from things like that.
