How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
from personal experience AP psych is a lot harder than AP calc AB. I think for a competitive school they want to see the most AP classes and most rigorous curriculum you can take. once you drop a class you can never go back. y best advice is take both and drop one course once school starts if it is too intense. you should also make sure you take AP chem or the chem subject test if you’re going into a science major (or the equivalent for bio or physics)
Would having AP Psych and AP Calc be very stressful and a lot of work for you? If so, I'd say take AP Calc because its an important math course and you can start in a higher math level in college with AP credit should you choose to take the AP exam. See your high school math requirements and see if you have to take AP Calc. I've heard that AP psych is a really fun class, so if that's something you're interested in then take that then. If taking both will not be stressful then I'd say take both. good luck and stay safe!
