I am constantly thinking about how horrible my AP scores are:
AP English Language and Composition - 3
AP Calculus AB - 3 (self-study)
AP Computer Science Principles - 4
AP Spanish IV - 3
(Did not take APUSH or APWH)
Although I did have technical difficulties on the first part of the AP Calculus AB exam, I just can’t get over the fact that I could have showcased a much better score. I am already applying to multiple UC’s and these scores are really affecting my confidence in a negative way.
I am most definitely re-taking these (excluding CSP) exams my senior year, is there any point if they are not going to be reported anyways other than to gain college credit?
I am aware that I can self-report these scores but I still believe that I am much better than what I received. Should I report them in my common application? Planning to major in architecture, I am stressing out over these scores and I can not find any hope of competitiveness.
I looked over college credit for the UC’s I am applying to and saw that most accepted a score of 4 and above on the Spanish and English exam. Yet again I am determined to do better than my past self.
These are the UC’s I am planning to apply:
UCLA (Ill take my chances)
Cal Poly Pomona
These are the AP courses that I have taken so far:
AP World History - C, B (Deceptive peer cost me my grade first semester)
AP English Language & Composition - A, A
AP Computer Science Principles - A-, A+
AP Spanish IV - A, A-
AP United States History - B-, A+
AP Macroeconomics (IP - A)
AP Government & Politics (IP - A+)
AP Calculus BC (IP - B+)
AP English Literature & Composition (IP - A-)
Physics Honors - A+, A+
D.E. Math Analysis - B, B
Disregarding GPA and extracurriculars, should I even report the scores of 3? APUSH exam will also be taken my senior year, prepared a study document containing all material required.
Any help would be truly appreciated.
