Should I take the AP Macro/Microeconomics exam?

I've managed to maintain a high B in the class, but we had a midterm that was an old microeconomics AP test. I didn't do too well (C- with a curve).

I need a 3 or higher to receive semester credit hours at the college I'll be attending this fall, and I think I would probably be able to get that due to the curve on the AP. However, I'm majoring in neuroscience/pre-med and won't need to take any higher level economics courses or anything.

Is there any benefit at all to me taking it, when I won't even be needing economics in college? Or should my parents save their money?
