AP test deadline is March 1st so DS needs to decide which AP tests to take...He will be taking the AP English (there was another thread which spoke of the benefit of validating the plebe composition class) and AP German. Based on the advice of several current cadets and graduates, DS has decided to not take AP Chemistry or Calculus. The rigors of these plebe classes present more than enough challenge for DS and he doesn't want to bite off more than he can chew. My question is regarding validating History(another thread spoke of doing this to open up more room for electives in Firstie year). DS is taking AP Government this year...in order to validate History at WP can he do it taking the AP Government exam? Or would he need to take the AP U.S. History exam even though he has not taken AP History? Any advice would be appreciated!
