Ok, I'm going to tel you something crazy. Your AP exams are going to mean very little in the next few years. Sure, you will go to college, have some Gen Ed out of the way which will make way for some bird courses. Or maybe you will graduate early. But no future employer is going to care about your AP exams. Hell, once you are a junior or so, your college won't care about your AP exams. These exams are not the end all be all of the course of your life. They just help guide your first year (maybe two) of college. So relax, because your college self will know exactly how to do that.

But don't colleges look at your scores when considering your application?

I'm not sure if it has changed much. But it honestly depends on the college. Pretty much the college cares about whether or not you received the AP credit. This will help mainly in the academic advising process. (E.g. you Don't need to take English 160 since you passed the AP exam, so you will automatically go to English 161)

Yes colleges do look at the scores. I know someone who is doing this same exact thing and says that it really matters. Good luck!
