I am going through my ABS survey, and for some classes it is asking whether I want to take the validation test. Are there consequences to "trying" on certain tests? I'm pretty sure that I will NOT be able to validate physics, but I sorta would like to try. (I'm assuming its a calculus based physics course, which I have no experience with.) My second question: If I desire to be a MechE or AeroE major, do I have to validate certain courses in order to be eligible? Is there a possibility that I will be denied from the department of study that I choose?
