Hi, again. I posted on here a couple days ago about math, and I’m back already haha. I’m an American junior planning on applying to Oxford and a couple other UK schools for PPE next year, and I’m more than a little concerned about my AP exams. As of now, I have the following scores:
- Human Geography (5)
- US Government (4)
- Latin (4)
It seems that, out of the three, only Government would really be relevant to PPE (maybe Human Geography?), and I took a 4 on it. I took it last year, and although I’m not sure I can actually blame the pandemic for my score, I’m hoping the tutors would at least give me the benefit of the doubt given the circumstances. Regardless, it’s not a great look. Would it be worth it to retake it this year?
The other issue is that this year, I’m taking Physics, Music Theory, Calc AB and BC (my school makes us take both courses), Lang, APUSH, Micro, and Macro for my APs. That’s seven exams if I were to take all of them (combining AB and BC), and I’d really rather avoid taking all of them. I really don’t think I’ll do well on Physics, and both that and APMT are so irrelevant to anything I’d study here or abroad, I think I’m leaning towards skipping both of those exams, especially if I were to also add Government. Is there any benefit to just taking all of them anywas? Is there something I’m forgetting to consider?
