On my first test in AP Chem I received a 60. I had an average grade of an A in chem last year but AP chem is much different and very hard. If I got a 60 on the first test its only going downhill since the first one is the easiest. I'm also applying to colleges in two months so this marking period matters. Should I drop the class and take an easier class. Not necessarily something really easy but easier than AP Chem. The colleges I'm applying to range from University of Rochester, Marist, Lehigh, Upitt, and others.
