Im taking Comp Sci tomorrow and I have no idea about anything. I will get a 1 for sure. Can I cancel the score or do I just not report it?

    Yup, you can cancel a score, but it'll be final, and you'll never see it ever again. I think there's a fee attached.

    Cancel it before taking the test!!!
    You may get a certain amount of refund.

    ^^you only lose the fee the school pays (~$15)
  • tomahawk89tomahawk89 Registered User Posts: 352 Member
    That's additional. I talked about refunding with my AP Coordinator and she said that the cancellation fee is $13, as the CB website says, and that means if a school gives $70 refund, you will lose total $26.

    The thing is, my school has this new policy where they force you to take the AP tests. Any suggestions?

    If you haven't already decided where to report the score, then just take it and see what happens. If you do well, you can report the score later. If you don't do as well as you had hoped, don't report the score. That way you will get credit on your transcript for having taken the AP course. If you are a senior in HS, don't worry about a thing!

    I think you have until June 15th to cancel--check AP website as to what the procedure is... Good Luck!

    If you take the test, your AP teacher will still get your score. I know someone who cancelled his scores, though it turned out that he had passed.

    Take mine back--cancellation fee is NOT additional.

    I called the college board today to find out the details about cancellation (if you're a senior, though, just ask the CB to withhold the score):
    1. You must send a written request to the CB if you want your scores to be canceled.
    2. If you cancel by June 15, the grade report that you and your high school receive will not display a grade for the exams that you canceled, but any canceled exams will be marked "canceled".
    3. The transcript (as distinct from the grade report) that colleges receive will contain no record of a canceled exam score (so no worry there).
    4. You can cancel after June 15, and the grade will appear on the grade reports. The AP transcript sent to colleges, however, will contain no record of scores canceled after June 15, provided that you request the transcript after the college board has received your written request to cancel the exam scroes.

    So if I were to cancel my score for AP Lit tomorrow after taking the exam...on my transcript, would AP Literature appear as cancelled, or would it not appear at all? I'm asking because I mentioned on my application that I would take it.

    if you cancel for one test, do you have to cancel all AP tests?
  • who8me2k7who8me2k7 Registered User Posts: 138 Junior Member
    BUt the thing is, I dont think I can cancel since my school forces us to take them. I know I did horribly...I drew on the FRQ's
