I took AP Calculus AB last year, and let's just say I didn't do too well. I ended up failing the exam with a 2. Math is my worst subject, and it was the first year my teacher had ever taught calculus. I think only a couple of people from the two classes passed. This isn't an excuse, I should have done better, just how the situation panned out.
I got an 87 in the class (B) overall.
Will this destroy my chances for college applications? I've take four other AP classes, and I got 4's on AP Biology, AP Human Geography, and AP Environmental Science, and an easy 5 on AP Language. Overall, not particularly impressive.
I'm applying to Cornell early decsision, and I would say that AP scores is probably the weakest area of my application. I come from a small rural town with low emphasis on higher-level classes and that only offers a third of the total AP classes. I'll graduate with 8 of the 12 my school offers.
I've done well on SAT and ACT math, and am taking a dual enrollment college math class this year, but I still have that 2.
Do my AP scores basically sign my death certificate for the Ivy League?
