AP Class? Learning disability? Would I do well? Help!?

<p>Well, I am currently a female junior in high school, with a processing disability. Yes, I have made my disability well-known. Most of my teachers know about it. Most of my classes are taught by two teachers. Even the Collegeboard approved me for double time on their exams (SAT's and stuff). </p>

<p>The thing is, I am dying to sign up for an AP class for next year, to improve my college application.I have never taken an AP before. I am kinda scared that I won't do well. I am an 85's-90's/100 student in my current classes.</p>

<p>Do you think I would function well in an AP class? Why or why not?</p>

<p>You need to talk to a counselor, as each individual is different. If you have double time on the SATs, you will also receive the accommodation of double time on the AP exams. The only issue might be the pace of the work. Again, this would depend on your individual situation. You can't really lose by taking an AP Class, despite what others may say here, even if you receive a 3, 4 or even a 2 (horrors!) on the exam. Colleges look favorably on those who "go for it," despite the outcome.</p>

<p>I think your success would depend on what class. For example, in WH it was about 25-60 pages of reading a week but in HG it was only about 10 pages a week. On the flip side, college is a LOT of reading so you'll need to get used to the amount eventually despite your learning disability.</p>
