Should I take AP Exams?

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys,

    Basically I am applying to the USA (pretty much to the few private universities that offer international financial aid).

    I do A Levels in Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Business and I am taking the SAT and the SAT Math Level Two and the SAT Physics.

    However, the CollegeBoard has stated on Stanford's and Harvard's university profiles that they take AP's into consideration. All I get from admissions officers is "we consider each application individually".

    But is there a clear definitive yes you should or no don't worry? I mean it would be a burden but if it is required by universities (whether officially or... not so officially) then I may as well?

    If any American students are reading this then I have two questions: Can you help? And how the hell did the Houston Texans lose like they did last weekend!?

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.
