I am going to be majoring in decision science.
It is required to take Calculus, and I really do not want to take a Calculus course.
21-120 is required, as this link says: Department</a> of Social and Decision Sciences</p>
<p>Now according to this link: <a href="http://www.cmu.edu/hub/registration/docs/ap-credit.pdf%5B/url%5D">http://www.cmu.edu/hub/registration/docs/ap-credit.pdf</a>
^ That says that I need a 5 on the Calculus AB OR BC exam. It says if I get a 4, I obtain credits, correct (it is cut out on that webpage)? How does the placement exam work, and would that get me out of Calculus if I take it?</p>
<p>I also found: <a href="http://www.cmu.edu/hss/advisory-center/images/2011-do-you-need-to-take-calculus.pdf%5B/url%5D">http://www.cmu.edu/hss/advisory-center/images/2011-do-you-need-to-take-calculus.pdf</a>
So if I place out of the 21-120 class (keep in mind: majoring in decision science), would I be able to never take any Calculus classes again?</p>
<p>So let me get this right: I should take the AB exam instead of the BC exam, because the scores are the same. If I get a 5, then I place out of all the Calculus classes. If I get a 4, I can take a placement exam and if I do well on it, I can place out of Calculus. If anyone who is from CMU now knows this, please help me out because this is confusing! Thanks!</p>
