Problems with the collegeboard’s AP program

 

With SAT and ACT gone, here is a problem that some students may face.

Grades can become inflated and there will be some pressure on which student will have the most rigorous course load. This may push some students to take 4 or even 5 AP courses per academic year.

The problem is that the More AP tests you take, your chances of not passing some will increase.

It is better to take two AP classes and pass with high scores than take five AP test and fail 3 of them. That just looks bad for both the student and the school.

Sadly, AP classes often are not even giving the students the credit they claim to give at college. Most do not even count towards your major and there is a limit on how many units will get forwarded towards your GE requirements. Some Credits toward certain classes are applied only if you score a 5 on your AP test.

AP courses are meant to be college level and do require work at that level. Colleges really want you to demonstrate that you are familiar with such workload. But 4 or 5 difficult APs per year may actually backfire. So talk to your school academic adviser and select your AP courses wisely.

Phi Quyền Chính - Anarchism: The Tao Of Anarchy

The Tao of Anarchy: There is no God. There is no State. They are all superstitions that are established by the power-hunger psychopaths to divide, rule, and enslave us. It's only you and me, we are all true and real existence though in one short life. That is, We all are capable to freely interact with one another without coercion from anyone. We all are capable to take self-responsibility to find ways to live with one another in liberty, equality, harmony, and happiness before leaving this world forever. We all were born free and equal among all beings on this planet. We are not imprisoned in and by a place with a political name just because we were born there by bio-accident and social-chance. We are not chained to a set of indoctrinated beliefs that have been imposed upon us by so-called traditions. This Planet is home to all of us. No one owns it. We share the benefits from and responsibility to this Earth. We pledge no oath, no allegiance to no one; submit to no authority. We are all free and equal. The only obligation we all must undertake constantly with consistency is to respect the same freedoms and rights of others.
