University of Oxford AP Exams

for human science, which ap exams are they looking for? i heard that you have to list ap scores relevant to intended major. They are not looking for humanities ap scores but for AP scores in science subjects? like computer science, stats, calculus? It is really hard to clearly define human science.

    Maths/quantitative subjects, biology and geography are probably the most useful APs to take, but there are no mandatory subject requirements for this degree.

    The human science degree covers so many things, from ecology and human biology to sociology, culture and genetics. They won't expect you to have covered all of these areas in school, pick the APs you're most likely to do well in but try to do at least one of the three subjects I mentioned above.

    basically universities in England separate the AP's into two sections (group A &B or something). The first section is the ones they consider "hard subjects", eg english, math, and the sciences. The second section is the ones like econ, psych, music, art etc.

    Generally they look more highly upon the first section, but of course it depends on the course you want to study. You can also contact the university to see which AP subjects they think are relevant to your course.

    You will be expected to list scores for any course you have taken. Anything else would be dishonest. But you might not be required to take courses which are not relevant to your intended degree.
