    I recently saw on the forum that in order to gain credit for ap classes one must take a validation test. How different are these tests from the actual Advanced Placement? More/less difficult? When are they given?

    Ive taken: US Gov, Chem, Physics C, Comp Sci., Calc BC, Stat, Lit, Lang, US & World History, and Psychology.

    Are there validation tests for each one I have taken? I am concerned I may have to refresh my memory in some of the subjects...

    USNA will accept some AP scores. Their system is different than a civilian college. For example, in order to receive credit for history, you would need a combined score of a 10 on both AP US and AP World. USNA tends to only take 5's. A full list of accepted scores can be found here: http://www.usna.edu/Academics/Candidate-Information/Course-Validation-Policy.php

    Validation tests are given during plebe summer but in some cases no test is needed.
