AP Exams vs. The Real Classes
I am a freshman in Miami, Florida. I took AP Calculus BC in 8th grade and have self-studied both of the AP Physics C and AP Chemistry exams. I did not take the class because the school would not let me. I am really facing an issue because my school wants to force me to take the classes even if I get a 5 on all of the exams(I am very confident in my ability to do this). My parents want to know for college admissions, specifically for schools like Caltech and M.I.T., what they would recommend students in my case to do? My parents are considering homeschooling me or sending me to a community college. I am mainly asking what the top schools would think about self-studying all AP science and math classes without taking the class? Thank you very much.4 replies
