Do I need APs if I have strong extracurriculars as an International Student>?

I'm from Bulgaria, a small country in Eastern Europe. Our educational system is quite different from yours. Our schools don't calculate GPA and don't offer AP courses.

Should I retake my AP Human Geography exam?

Hi, I want to be competitive for top colleges, but I feel like I will retake my AP exams for those. These were from my 9th grade, and I'm going to 10th.

You can choose whether or not to report AP scores to a college. Plus, fewer colleges are accepting ...
