You're better off taking a normal class and keeping your GPA up. A grade on an AP course (at least that's the way they calculate it at the school I worked with) has a larger impact on your GPA. So if you get a higher grade, it pulls your GPA up by a lot, but get a lower grade and it pulls it down by a lot. While a good grade in an AP class looks impressive, a so so grade doesnt really look that great. Although do be sure that you wont pass with an A.
Go with the AP times a million. Colleges like to see that you challenged yourself. I personally love my ap classes. Plus, at my school, and A in an AP is worth 6 points towards your gpa instead of 4. So, you get a 5 for a B, and a 4 for a C, which is the same you would get for an A in level.
This is a good question. I'd say, as long as you aren't starting to fail halfway through the year, go with the AP classes. You will learn more, and be in a class of concentrated, focused learners. AP also looks better on your cert.
Well for me it's Easyer to take normal than ap if I were you I would just go into normal and get good grades and normal gets you finished high school so it's easy for you.
If you are on the breaks of barley passing the advanced classes you're better off taking regular classes and getting a 4.0 instead of a low 3. something or 2.0
as long as you pass them i guess youd be doing ok, but i would think getting an A is better than getting a C, no matter what class you take
Well for me I would take normal I'm not really smart but what's the point take normal it still gets you through school doesn't it
i would talk to you guidance counselor, this is to big of a question to leave up to people on the internet. good luck
Oh haha. Well then my argument would be that you will learn more, and have broader, more developed studies in class.
well Ap courses you can get college credit if you pass the exams if you dont pass then you dont get the credit
yeah so it is high risk high reward basically. high risk as in harder class high reward college credits lol
well all my AP classes do not have concentrated, learners they are louder than the normal classes XD
idk but taking AP classes count as college credits so that is always helpful no matter what.
