Calculus AB/BC

<p>I'm a h.s. senior who has been taking ap calc bc for the first semester. Two thirds of the way through the term, I'm expected to get a D by the end of the term. Next term, I'm transferring into calc ab, but I heard a rumor that calc AB doesn't or won't count for anything anymore in terms of credit or admissions. Is that true?</p>

<p>P.S. - I also have a question on the college admissions page about how big midyears really are. It has a lot to do with the grade above. </p>

<p>Thanks to everyone for replying.</p>

<p>Calculus AB counts for one semester of college credit, while Calculus BC counts for a full year. The Calculus BC exam has an AB subscore, calculated based only on the questions on AB topics, which many colleges use to grant credit for the first semester.</p>

<p>thats a HUGE relief, thanks.</p>

<p>Is it true you can only take one of the calculus tests in one year?</p>

<p>Yes, you can take either AB or BC. The reason is that some of the AB material is on the BC test.</p>

<p>Yeah, there's no point in taking both AB and BC anyway, because the BC exam has an AB subscore for precisely this reason.</p>

<p>Does your grade from an AP course in high school go into your GPA in college?</p>

<p>No, and neither does your AP grade, in most cases. Your transcript will just show a pass instead of a grade.</p>

<p>60% of BC is AB material</p>
