What Admissions Think?

So I recently took 2 AP Exams (Not core courses) as a 10th grader and I got a "2" on both of them despite getting a A in the classes.

I was also absent for an entire semester due to a terminal illness so I had to make up a lot of work at home to actually maintain my grades, but it was at the expense of studying as much as I wanted to.

What will admission think?

    If your question is "Can you get into Caltech with 2 on AP in two subjects?"

    The answer is
    "Yes If you have an otherwise extra ordinary record and are able to show by actual deeds that these grades are due to abnormal circumstances".

    If for example, you take 7-10 AP's in your 11th grade and get 5's in all of them, then your explanation may strike a chord.

    Is it going to be easy? NO
