Bad AP Score

By the end of high school I would have taken a total of 11 AP tests and I have 5 to take next year senior year. I got a 5 on 5 of the AP tests I have taken this year but a 3 sophomore year which was on the AP World one. Would that prevent me from going to a top college? I got an A- average in the AP Workd course.

A 3 is a bad score because all the rest were 5’s? That just sounds disingenuous; to me it comes off as humblebragging. That could hinder you more for top college than your scores.

Your scores are fantastic. If you are truly concerned, don’t report the 3 on your application. Regardless, if you get rejected, it will not be the result of a 3.
