AP score reporting

<p>I need some help. My son has terrific grades, almost aced the SAT, has wonderful extracurriculars, etc., but bombed the first AP test he took (he got a 2) . . . is he required to report it on the common app where it asks for AP scores? He knows he won't get college credit for it so he won't even try. . .but would omitting it be wrong if he doesn't intend on seeking credit?</p>

<p>Definetely omit it. Most selective colleges are smart and will notice that he took the class and never reported it, but you just want to avoid any negative attention in the app.</p>
