dd told me that her HS AP Bio teacher asked them to let her know whether they wanted to take the AP test or not. The teacher is experienced and oft-cited as a favorite among students. So I have no doubt that she will deliver a good class either way. Given the difficulties and limitations of an online school year I am wondering if it would in fact be better to skip the test this year if that means that the teacher will have more flexibility in planning what / how to teach.
I am wondering how much importance colleges place on APs this year due to the pandemic.
I think AP Bio is a pretty hard test that is hard to get a 5 in even in normal times. So it is a pretty big gamble on getting college credit.
