AP Credit?

I posted a similar thread a few months ago about what scores I would need to receive on my AP exams in order to get credit. Someone posted a link to the Enchiridion (I am a business major), which had a table that said credit could be granted for the following courses if one receieves a score of a 4 or a 5.

Well, are there some courses that require only a 5? Are there any outside factors (GPA, grade for that particular class) that would go into the decision on whether or not one would receive credit?

I'm seeking credit for the following courses. If any nova students received credit for these courses, please post your AP scores :D

Calculus AB
English Language
English Literature
Spanish Language

    The Enchiridion (student handbook) lays it out pretty clearly. It looks like you get credit for everything except for art, and you can even get placement for 3's in some of them. The link is here:

    If you've take the biology AP, do you get 8 credits or 4? It looks like the AP Bio course is the equivalent of 2 Nova classes. Same is true for some others. Can anyone shed light on this?

    Slim: Thats for liberal arts (im business) and those are the NUMBER OF CREDITS you receive, not the required score of the AP test. This number appears at the top of the chart (where it says Score of 4 or 5). So there are no subjects where credit is granted for getting a 3.
