How do AP courses and exams affect my college chances from India? (US Citizen). Does it matter how I prepare for the exam?

You'll likely be treated the same as all applicants regarding AP exams.  Some schools don't actually look at the exam results as they only consider those if you're offered admission and to grant you credit.  Others may consider those scores so it's worth asking the schools you're applying to about how they review test scores.  As for AP courses, they are considered rigorous, but your application will be considered like all others in terms of did you take advantage of the curriculum that was offered to you.  There have been a lot of questions answered already about AP exams on here so if you have questions about that, I recommend you look at the other answers.

  • In India, an average score for a high school paper would be 70% or so. Most GPA converters list this as about 2, which is a pretty bad score- so obviously, GPA converters are unreliable at the most. I do know that you aren't asked to convert marks in the applications, but does anyone know if they do convert them while they are analyzing the application? If so, do they use a reliable converter?
