The issue we are struggling with is whether or not to take the AP exams in subjects she is studying at the college. She does not have the option to take actual AP classes in this program. The college courses do not map to the AP curriculum, so the AP exams will require her to put in extra time to prepare. Is there any benefit to taking the AP exams, and how do college admissions counselors view students with such a background? She is a straight A student, by the way, including in the college classes, so GPA is not the issue. Thanks.
That's a good question, and you may get different answers depending on who you ask.
