I believe the answer is no, but I’ll explain.
I have seen a couple courses described as “interdisciplinary”, bridging two colleges or faculties within one university.
My D, currently a junior at a demanding prep school that doesn’t emphasize APs too much, would be a great candidate for such a course. Her current stats in the US are fantastic - GPA 3.98/4.0 with a very rigorous curriculum, lots of honors classes, a handful of APs (5 by the end of senior year), a ridiculous number of ECs in performing arts, and a decent (if not spectacular) first SAT of 1410. She’s good at English, math, and sciences, and doesn’t lean too heavily in any one direction.
She currently has a 5 in AP Calc BC, and will take chem this spring - likely to get a 5. She will not be taking AP English until next year. She is capable of getting a 5, but no guarantees, right? She’ll also take 2 other APs in 2022 - I think French and Music Theory.
One interdisciplinary course I saw was Sustainable Development at St. Andrews. I know the entrance requirements are wonky right now, but I’m reading the standard entry requirement as “AAA” with one A in English, and one in any math or science. She has the math - but she won’t know if she has the English until June 2022.
Another course at St. Andrews was Earth and Env. Science - basically the science part of the Sustainable Development course. That one needs an ABB, with no specifics.
So if my D applied for Env. Science, she’d be a favorable candidate, but if she applied for SD, and only got a 4 on the English AP… she’d be shut out from St. Andrews, right?
So my question is - can a student be offered a different course after the final scores are available, OR, can a student list one course as the favored option, with a different course at the same school as the insurance option on the UCAS?
This is probably a silly question and I’m sure it’s been asked many times - I just couldn’t find the answer in the archives. So thanks for taking the time to respond.
