If we get B+'s on our midyear reports, will it at least look better than a B?

I'm in a situation right now where I'm probably going to end up with two 88's, in AP English and Spanish...will this at least be better than getting solid B's? I didn't slack at all; at my school we have hard teachers which is why it's really hard to get an A.

    do they see letter or number grades. and honestly i doubt it messes with your admissions chances anyways, midyears really only play a part if you're a borderline candidate, or if your midyear is bad (such as C grades or below). you have nothing to worry about, the midyear you've described wont make them accept you or deny you solely based on that.

    Well, I'm REALLY borderline. This is why I'm so worried.

    ^with a 1350 and 540 on an SATII....i wouldnt really consider you "REALLY borderline" its more of a significant reach...either way I dont think that will effect your chances at all.....and obviously a B+ looks better than a B....lol does an A look better than a B+???
