Can I choose to "hide" a AP score?

If I don't do well on a specific subject, can I choose to "hide" that subject so colleges won't see it (just like you can "hide" a subject in SAT Subject Tests)? Or do I must send scores of all APs I've taken?

Thanks in advance.

    AP exams are usually self-reported on college apps. Plus, you can generally only list so many on the application. So, you should be able to leave it out. However, some feel that colleges may question if they see an AP courses on your transcript but not a corresponding exam on the application (if you haven't exhausted that list with other exams).

    Yeah, and if you really feel right after an AP exam you want the score to be canceled and removed. there's a method for sending it in writing to the CB.

    And i mean.. you went into the exam put all C's and doodled in the FR, otherwise don't do it.
