I have taken 9 AP classes (including 5 this year) but am only going to take the exams this year. I duel enrolled previously for one of them. Will this look bad on my application? I got As in the classes, but am not sure colleges will discount that because I didn't take the exams. Thanks!
I would say to take the AP exam. Different teachers grade more harshly throughout different classes, schools, and locations. While you might have a A in AP Calc BC for instance, in some other school a A would be like impossible to achieve. The AP exam can test if you truly learned in your class. Also, it wouldn't hurt to take it.
