AP Test Scores

<p>I got a 3 on the AP Language Exam, I know that this isn't enough in order to pass out of most freshmen English Classes. Next year I plan on taking AP Literature, is it possible to still get out of the freshmen English Classes, if I do well on the AP Lit. exam? Do colleges check both your Language, and Literature Grade? When I check some college websites they seem to give more credit for the AP Lit. Exam. I'm looking at Northwestern and University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and a couple of other colleges for engineering.</p>

<p>i’m in the same situation as you. does someone know the answer to this?!</p>

<p>It really just depends on the college. At some colleges you can opt out of the same English classes for doing well on the Lang or lit exam. At other colleges for getting a four or five on AP Lang you get out of writing101 and for lit you get out of an English literature class. I think your best best is to just try really hard to do well on the lit exam.</p>
