## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi. I'm a homeschooled sophomore and I have some questions about AP exams and classes.

I took BC Calculus last year but I didn't take the exam. I think I'm supposed to take the exam this year. I also signed up for AP Statistics for some reason. :tongue: Right now I'm taking an advanced-undergraduate-level modern algebra class, and I have self-studied real analysis, topology, and linear algebra at the introductory graduate level. I will be taking grad-level classes in the above subjects at NCSU starting this Fall, so I will have a lot of documented grades for my math. Is it necessary for me to take these two exams, just because they are part of some kind of standard curriculum? Isn't the beauty of homeschooling the *flexibility* of the curriculum? Neither of these tests help my overall math education in any way. Should I refund and get some of that money back?

Thanks.
