Sorry if this topic has been covered before. But after reading Brown's policy on AP credit
, I have a couple questions.
1. It says that "AP credits do not count towards the 30 courses required to graduate from Brown. They may, however, in certain instances, allow a student to graduate in fewer than 8 semesters." If courses don't count toward the 30, how could you possibly graduate in fewer than 8 semesters?? It sounds like AP credits just let you take advanced courses sooner. Correct me if I'm wrong.
4 or 5: earns one unassigned credit in biology and placement beyond Biomed 20." Does an "unassigned credit" mean that if I'm a bio major, I will be able to take one fewer course toward my concentration?
3. Just confirming-- there is absolutely no reason for me to take the English Literature exam, right?
4. "French Language and Literature
4: earns credit for French 40 and placement into French 50 or 52." If I'm not a French major, does this "credit" actually mean anything?
Thanks for any clarification :)
