Common Application: reporting AP test score?
On Common Application, under testing, it say's you can report AP tests that you will take in the future, for example I'm taking AP Calculus right now, but my test is in May 2021. How would I exactly put a score for a test that I haven't taken yet, since the application is due this week.

I encountered the same question recently when filling out the Common App. If you haven't taken the exam yet, you can just leave the score blank for it, and it will show on your final transcript. Hope this helps!
You would report your score when you send in your final transcript. Your score wouldn't help your application but taking as many AP credits as possible looks good on your application. Also, if you get wait listed your score might be able to help.
I do not think that you can put this score for a test that you have not taken yet, but it'll be shown that you are taking the class on your current transcript.
