Many students fail to reach their full potential due to being afraid of failure. Students who have the capability and skills to enroll in an AP (advanced placement) class often stick to the easy route because… well it’s easy.  Junior Nick Real is not one to take the easy way out considering he is in not one, but four AP classes. El Modena Frontline got a chance to sit down with Nick and learn about the challenges and rewards that AP delivers.

Frontline: How much time does four AP classes take up?

Nick Real: I’ve had nights where I had up to seven brutal hours worth of homework, but it’s usually around two hours.

FL: What is your reason or motivation that made you decide to load up on AP classes this year?

NR: I wanted to challenge myself as well as boost my GPA.

FL: Do you ever at times wish you had just taken normal classes?

NR: No, it’s hard now, but I know it’ll pay off.

FL: What is some advice you could offer to a student who would like to be in AP but is nervous about the challenge?

NR: You’ll do fine as long as you have some discipline and don’t procrastinate.
