Christine asked 3 years ago

I am a senior and last year I got a B in AP Chem first semester and a C second semester. I did not take the AP test. Does retaking classes always look bad? I would like to take AP Chem again this year because I know I would score highly on the test but I don’t want to remind colleges that I got a C last year. I don’t know what to do!

Hi Christine! I think retaking a class demonstrates that you would like to master the material. Ask your high school guidance counselor what that would look like on your transcript. Some schools replace the first grades with an R” and only show the second grades. Even if your school doesn’t do this
