Substituting an AP Score for a Regents Score?

Dear Colleagues,

I am hoping someone knows the answer to this question. I currently have a 9th grader enrolled in AP Calculus. He took the Integrated Algebra Regents as an 8th grader, and he is almost certain to get a 5 on the AP exam. (FYI he has taken advanced math courses on hs own at the local comminuty college since 6th grade). He hasn't officially taken a Geometry or an A2/T class yet, but will earn his 3 HS math credits by taking other math courses (such as AP Statistics). According to the NYS regs, a 3 on the AP is an acceptable minimum score "that can be substituted for a Regents Examination score of 65" according to the following link:

1. Will the 3 on the AP exempt him from having to take BOTH the Geometry and A2/T Regents?

2. Wouldn't a bright student not want to choose this option because the 65 would pull down his average score on his Regents exams, thus affecting his Regents diploma status?

Any input that you could provide on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
