I was wondering if I should self study AP World next year, my junior year. I have two main motives for doing this -
1. I want to take the world history subject test and perform well on it.
2. I want to earn the National AP Scholar Award, which would only be possible if I took an extra AP test next year.
Regarding #1 - is it worth it to study for the AP test since I plan to study for the subject test anyway?
Regarding #2 - how prestigious is this award? It is the highest distinction given by the college board regarding AP classes, but how much does it really appeal to colleges?
