Many AP Coordinators at high schools list all the benefits of taking AP classes, but rarely do they list the drawbacks and limitations.
Megan spells out for families a number of reasons why you might not want to take AP classes if your goal is college admissions.
In this episode, Megan will talk you through:
- The real benefit is not saving you money in college, but actually the higher level thinking skills you’ll gain
- The problem of “qualifying scores” (3 versus 4 versus 5) and that not all classes get the same credit
- The lack of consistency about what those credits will count for when you get to college,
- And more!
