I’ll be taking (H) Spanish III as a sophomore next year, with the intention of taking the subject test. If I make it to AP SPANISH IV the following year, does it matter which order I take the exams? (Assuming I make it AP SP V)
The course you take should be aligned with one of the two AP tests. Do the course descriptions not clarify it?
I would think IV would be Language and V would be Literature, if they are AP-specific courses. But check course descriptions, counselor, teacher.
@RichInPitt thanks for the help! I’m not in touch with the teacher. Completely forgot about checking the Program.
And as I now think about it, your answer is OBVIOUS!
For what it’s worth, here are the course descriptions from College Board. It describes the content and structure of the course, as well as the topics and scoring process for the exams
Lit - https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/courses/ap-spanish-literature-and-culture/course
Lang - https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/courses/ap-spanish-language-and-culture/course
Lang comes first. Ap Spanish literature is like AP English lit, but in Spanish. It’s really, really hard.
@MYOS1634 did you take the exam? Remember how you did?
No, I didn’t, but @skieurope did and may be able to detail.
But just looking at the syllabus it should be clear AP Spanish lit is hard: comprehensive, follows the canon of classics, and requires strong analytical and linguistic skills.
