Does not takeing AP Exams look bad?
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!

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.
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.
