What do I do with my AP score?
Answered

I’m a junior and took the AP government test last year and got a 5. What do I do with this now? Do I have to submit it right away to colleges or can I just hold on to it until I begin to fill out applications? Sorry if this is a dumb question but the Collegeboard website is very confusing and made me worry that I had to submit them now.

Just hold on to the score until you are ready to apply to colleges because

a.) Your list will change

b.) If you send it now it will cost $15 per college you send it to. That is expensive. If you wait until you have 5 or 6 APs to send, it will still only cost $15 but they send all 5 or 6 at once so you don't have to pay $15 per exam.

Good luck.
