Class Registration Advice

Many of the high school sophomores and juniors are preparing or are in the midst of signing up for their next years course load.  As you plan your schedule, the UNCW Admissions Office would like to offer a few words of advice...
  • Take a more academically challenging course load then you did the year before.  UNCW wants to see that the rigor in your schedule is increasing as you move through high school.
  • When you are considering an AP or an Honors course, chose to take them in the subjects that you know you will be successful in.  It is not the quantity of AP but rather the quality that you produce that we are interested in.  If you enjoy and do well in an English and History class, consider an AP in those.  If you know that Math is not your strongest subject, do not try struggle through an AP all year long, maybe an Honors is where you are best suited.
  • Begin to take SAT and ACT (with writing) tests now.  Before you get into your senior year is when you have the most time to take practice tests and perfect your skills.  UNCW suggests that you use the score choice option when available for standardized tests. This will allow all of your scores to come to you first for review before any college or university sees them.  Feel free to call UNCW for advice on which test score is best and/or how you should proceeded.
