Most AP classes ever seen a person take at once.

<p>I saw one person who did 6 AP classes and she did great in all of them.</p>

<p>I did eight at once, but others have taken significantly more - People occasionally take up to 14 in one year (and 5 them all).</p>

<p>5 plus two self studies here. I'm doing okay. In fact, I'd be disappointed if I got anything less than a 4 in all but one of them.</p>

<p>I can totally count on College Confidential to make me feel inadequate hahah. I took 4 my junior year and 4 my senior year. Then again my school does not offer very many and we hardly send people to prestigious colleges (mostly just the state school) so I don't feel too bad.</p>

<p>I'm currently doing 6 at the same time, 7 total (US Gov. and Macroecon. are a half-year each). The most you can do at my school (without self-studying, though I have no clue if anyone at my school does that) is 8 at the same time if you give up your lunch. The most I've seen done is 7 at the same time.</p>

<p>I know someone taking 7 AP classes this year, and possibly self-studying more. I'm taking 4 this year, and 6 next year, and that's more than enough for me.</p>

<p>14 in one year???? How in God's name do you study and have a life?</p>

<p>It makes absoltuely no sense to take 14 APs....what is his/her goal? I feel like if you study so hard to learn all of that and do well on the test you 1. arent enjoying actually learning the material and 2. you probably wont be able to remember it too well. In my school the most ever taken is 6 (over the course of the whole ear, we take classes per year not semester)</p>

<p>^ I am taking 12 APs this year, with 8 self-studies, and it's not a burden at all - with interest in the material, studying goes by quickly. I generally budget 10-15 hours of work for an easy AP (human geo) and 30-40 hours for a hard one (Calc BC, physics C) and that leaves me plenty of time to do other things.</p>

<p>Some of those 14 must have been self studied. I know of no school that allows students to take 14 actual classes.</p>

<p>There is a poster on here who claimed to have taken 18 AP exams in their junior year, and gotten 14 5's.</p>

<p>Hahaha that's ridiculous. I value my life enough to spend it doing things other than studying for 14 AP tests... I'm sorry but what does that prove? That you're a robot who finds self-worth in being insanely smart? In this day and age, being intelligent isn't the only factor of being successful. I doubt that the people who take 14 AP classes are well rounded, outgoing, and social.</p>

<p>^they can be :D they superhuman&lt;/p>

<p>Everyone I have known (myself included) who self-studies large numbers of APs does it mostly to avoid boredom once major extracurricular competitions are wrapped up for the year. It's a nice hobby, and if your learning style fits, not particularly difficult to do.</p>

<p>Self-studying an AP test is far less of a time commitment than taking an AP class. Taking 5 AP classes and self studying 9 tests is not much harder than taking 6 AP classes, depending on the difficulty of the school.</p>

<p>Do any of your schools restrict the number of AP classes you can take?</p>

<p>Mine does, but scheduling makes it difficult to take more than 5 or 6. A few kids are in 7 APs, though. (You can't take more than 7 classes, AP or not.)</p>

<p>I am taking 6-7 (depends on whether or not you count macro/micro as separate) this year but will likely take 8 or 9 tests.</p>

<p>6 AP classes and probably 2 self studies</p>

<p>I took six last year, and passed all of them. </p>

<p>Passed, but I didn't get 5s for all of them (only for three), so be careful if you decide to take a large-ish number, it looks easy enough at the beginning of the year, but if you procrastinate, it can really hurt.</p>

<p>I have the most of anyone I know - 9 AP tests, 0 self-study</p>
