AP classes?

If my school offers AP classes but I dont take any, will that look bad when I apply for university? Also I want to go into health sciences or engineering possibly at McMaster, Waterloo, UofT etc., will taking AP classes be beneficial?

  1. AP is only beneficial if you get a 1.1x multiplier added to your grade, but it’s also a higher workload so you may still end up with a lower mark than if you took the regular 4U/M equivalent. Also, you can save some money and time if you score a 4 or 5 on the AP exam and get a first year transfer credit. But no, it’s optional. They won’t care if you take AP for Canadian schools.
