Confused!! Important AP credit question!!

<p>Hi! So I just got a letter in the mail, and the important part was:</p>

<p>"If you enrolled at UF with credit from AP or IB classes and repeat the equivalent courses at UF, you will receive a grade for the UF course and no credit for the prior work."</p>

<p>Okay, so I receive the credit for MAC2311, which is great, it means a semester less of math. But does that mean I take MAC2512 or MAC2312?</p>

<p>I greatly appreciate the help! Thanks!</p>

<p>They're very very similar classes, 2512 is more tailored toward AP students.</p>

<p>You can take either, but since you're AP, 2512 is probably the best bet. It's what I took.</p>

<p>The letter's just saying if you retake 2311, you arn't going to end up with 3 AP credits and 3 UF credits, you'll just end up with the 3 from UF.</p>

<p>Okay. I was just also confused because MAC2312 says the prereq is MAC2311. But if I have the AP credit, is it the same thing?
And also, since two semesters seem to be required for pre-med, do I still have to do two semesters or one?
Sorry for all the questions!</p>

<p>Still have to do 2 semesters.</p>

<p>Jumping to Calc 2 would be the same thing as having completed 2 semesters for you since you already have credit for Calc 1. </p>

<p>Retaking Calc 1 and then taking Calc 2 would also be equivalent to 2 semesters. You'll just have a grade for Calc 1.</p>

<p>Don't worry about asking all the questions, that's what we're here for :D</p>

<p>It depends on the med school, really. Some specifically specify two semester of math in college, so you can redo calc 1 and take calc2, or take calc 2 and calc 3.</p>

<p>Personally I found calc 3 the easiest of them, but I am good with vectors.</p>

<p>Ohhh okay, now it's starting to make more sense. So it doesn't matter then that the prereq for MAC2312 is MAC2311?</p>

<p>Having AP credit is the same as having taken the class. So, as far as UF is concerned, you've completed MAC2311.</p>

<p>Thank you so much for your help, zaersz and bekindrewind!</p>
