AP CALC BC
Background: I am currently a junior. I got an a in honors algebra 1, a- in honors geometry. I got an a- in algebra 2 1 semester but after doing bad on the final it dropped my overall grade to a B+. Second semester I got an a. This year I’m in honors precalculus. The teaching style was really different and I had a hard time adjusting so I ended up with a B for 1st semester and rn for second semester I have an A and I intend to keep it that way. Our options for calculus are AP Calculus BC, AP Calculus AB, and ACP Calculus. There is a placement test that I take tomorrow and they use that plus math psat score (I didn’t do well) to determine what calculus they recommend. They say you need both criteria to get in. My psat score doesnt qualify me for ap calculus . I could potentially override it and take al calculus ab but I really want to take ap calculus bc bc I want to apply to bs/md schools and those are really competitive and like to see the hardest classes. Based on my prior grades, do you think I could still do ap calculus bc especially if I brush up on precalculus stuff????10 replies
