Let’s Talk About AP Tests

stack of AP practice and prep books

We’re in the middle of AP season and there are tons of questions, so let’s try to get through some of them. Here’s what I’ve learned over the years about AP scores, but be forewarned, time’s they are a-changin’ right now. And I can’t help but think that AP scores will become increasingly important as Subject Test scores disappear.

  • First of all, if you’ve already paid for the tests, I suggest taking them — even if you don’t think you’re ready. Give yourself a few minutes of deep breaths, do the superman pose (look it up), take time to sit in stillness, let your brain settle for a minute or two, and go for it.

Good luck everyone! I know we’ll be right back here talking about your scores in June or whenever you get them back, but for now, hoping that this gives you a little guidance. Lemme know if you have more questions that I — — or someone else around here — might be able to answer!

Take care. Take deep breaths. Superman (really. look it up)
