Is AP Calc AB looked down upon when one is aiming cor a science related major?
Hello all, I’m a current Senior and the school year has just started. I’ve been in AP Calc Ab for two days now and am having second thoughts about picking the lower level, since I plan on studying science or engineering in college. I’m currently taking 4 APs(Calc,Physics 1,Lit, and Bio.) I would naturally have selected BC, but Im afraid my math skills still need to develop, perhaps not to the level, but to the speed of BC. Should I go for BC because it will give me a better edge on Apps in comparison to AB? In total, my APs add up to 9, the others being Capstone,Human Geo, Chemistry, US history, and Language. How much of a disadvantage would taking AB put me at? Any insight is appreciated, thanks!5 replies
