不是我小氣, 不想回答陌生家長的問題.  很多年前有一個媽媽帶著他的兒子來做免費咨詢, 後來他並沒有成為我的學生, 但在咨詢的過程中媽媽一直希望我告訴他們是否應該重考SAT考試, 我靠著有限的資料建議他可以再考.  後來我接到這位媽媽的電話, 活活罵了我半個小時, 因為她兒子重考的結果跟之前是一樣的分數, 我在電話中也一再解釋這樣的結果並不會傷到學生申請的機會, 但媽媽覺得我浪費了他的兒子時間與力氣.  我事後有一種多管閑事, 多吃X的感受, 也在後來的工作中一再提醒自己對不是我的學生絕不做任何的實質上的建議.  但是在你的子女成為我的學生前, 我還是很願意為你們分析跟檢查現在的狀況.  你相信嗎? 透過這些免費咨詢我真的是啓發了無數的學生, 哈佛全方位的楊主任更是專治許多叛逆的青少年男生的專家喔!

  1. Hello Ms. Chiang. I’m a freshman student in high school and came to U.S about two years ago, and I have a few question about choosing classes. In sophmore year my school have three options for history: Modern World History(Regular), Western Civilization(Like honor but no extra grade points), AP European History. The teacher of AP European History doesn’t easily give out good grades (in all AP classes only 1 got A, 4 got B, rest 40 students are Cs and Ds), but then he tells me that almost all of his students got 5 on the AP exam. So, is a bad grade in AP but high AP exam score better than a A in honor class with no AP exam?

    1. Hi, Yiran. It is pretty amazing that you are already qualified to take the AP Euro class as a freshman who came to the U.S. just 2 years ago. To answer your question, the grade you receive from the class will be shown on your school transcript and it will be calculated into your GPA. As for the test score from the AP exam, it will be part of your Standardized test scores. They will become 2 different factors on your college applications.
