    Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew if the AFA uses any AP Exam scores we send to them via the College Board reporting service. I received a confirmation letter from the College Board that the AFA had received my exam scores, though I don't know whether or not they use them in determining appointments. Thank you for your time in advance :D,

    Hi!

    Unfortunately, no. The AFA, and I believe all the other SA's will only use either the SAT or the ACT for admission scoring.

    Now, the AP scores "MAY" be taken into account once you're appointed and you begin the preparation during BCT for academics. They might factor into whether or not you are able to "validate" any courses, etc.

    But for admissions, they're not used.
