AP classes bringing down my GPA???
I’m going to be a junior in high school. As a sophomore I took APUSH and got an A in the class and a 5 on the AP test. As a junior i’m taking AP Language and Comp., AP Gov (one semester), AP macroeconomics (one semester), and AP psychology. I’m really worried that I’ll get a B in AP Lang and AP Macroeconomics. My cumulative unweighted GPA for sophomore year was a 3.66, and 4.32 unweighed and I really don’t want that to go down. Do you think colleges would see that I got a B in an AP class and be okay with it since it’s more rigorous? Or will they automatically consider me unable to handle college coursework?4 replies
