I am taking an Honors Physics course right now. It does teach to the curriculum of AP Physics, but not as far in-depth. Many students in the past have taken the AP Physics exam with a LOT of extra work and done well after taking the honors course, but it is not recommended. I was wondering if I should do the same? Will it help me with college admissions at all? If not, I don’t really see the point as I will probably take College Physics because I want to go to medical school. However, I have also not been able to take a science AP class/test yet, so could taking the AP Physics exam and doing well show colleges that I do have competency in college level science work?
Is it possible that if I pass the physics exam, I could use it to satisfy gen ed requirements that I don’t want to take? Such as non-premed or neuroscience (what I want to major in) courses?
