Discussion in 'Coast Guard Academy - USCGA' started by Packer, May 21, 2012.
Do Scholars need to send their AP test scores to their prep school (Marion) as well as he academy?
Yes, please. That plus the HS transcripts and SAT/ACT scores will help for placement in the appropriate math courses.
Hi bumping this thread because it answers a question for dd. I didnt know the correct way to attach to the other prep scholars thread... Physics Guru and Aux do the cadets receive the AP Credit at Marion and GMC? DD is in AP Calculus based Physics 2 now. Will EOY grads hAve bearring on placement? Same questions for AP English and AP calculus.
Physicsguru will have to address this.
The short answer is no. Since the scholars are being sent to MMI/GMC for prep, they will be taking courses assigned by the academy. MMI uses the SAT/ACT score for placement into math, usually precalculus algebra. GMC, being on a trimester, will place all their students in precalculus at the beginning of the year, with the intention of taking calculus by the end of the year. All students will take College Chemistry, Composition, College Physics, and Math, regardless of their previous courses in high school.
Remember, CGA wants all students to have a solid academic foundation before arriving at the academy. Success in the courses assigned at prep school are excellent predictors of future success at the academy.
