According to the College Board's AP director, Trevor Packer, using 2003 to 2006 data, 47.4 percent of AP students took just one AP test, 22.3 percent took two, 12.4 percent three, 7.2 percent four and 4.3 percent five. College admissions officers say three to five tests is fine if you are seeking admission to a very selective college. So, 69.7 percent of AP students took fewer, and 6.4 percent took more than five. Those who took six were 2.7 percent of the total; those taking seven were 1.6 percent.
<p>I took one soph. year, 5 last year, and i'm taking 9 (tests, only 7 courses, because Physics C an Econ both have 2 tests) next year... would that mean I'm in like the .00001% who took 15? I think it's in one year, not cumulative.</p>
<p>This makes sense, as people have already mentioned. Economics & Physics C are potentially two tests each. US Government, Psychology, and Comparative Gov. are all semester classes at my school so a student could sign up for 2 tests right there.</p>
