Ap score affecting college admissions
Answered

As you all know, AP exam scores are out, and I didnt so good on my only ap exam. Would low ap exam scores (1-2) be a means for rejection to a college? Im scared due to this score, colleges might reject me. Furthermore if I just dont send my scores and colleges see that in my transcript there are a lot of ap's but no ap exam scores are submitted, wouldnt that look a little suspicious and also lead to a means of rejection possibly?

im really confused and scared so if anyone can help id appreciate it

They're really not going to care about what you didn't do very much. If you didn't do well on AP exams, whatever. It's a lot more important what you DID do. You did take the class. If you did well in the class, that's even better. But as long as the other parts of your application are good, they're not going to read into that very much. It might hurt you slightly, but this will not be a reason for rejection.

Hi! So as far as I know, if you don't submit your AP score colleges won't be able to see it but your chances are lowered ever so slightly. I would assume the same applies with transcript even if they see that you took AP courses
