I'm wondering how many of you students took AP tests this year and in what subjects?

I took Government and Politics, and World History. We don't have a government and politics class so I had to take the test at a different school Tongue

Eh... Not this year.  I have taken Calculus/Any Geo, Writing I, World History, and Spanish AP tests.  Much cheaper than college classes, and for the same amount of credit.  I had a mandatory "Participation in Government" class for my Senior year.  However, no college credit was offered...

Messed it up how?  Forgot to ensure college credit was rewarded?

May I ask what you got on AP Spanish? I know it's really hard, the highest score any of my friends have gotten is a 3. I'm in Spanish IV now, but I'm not going to AP

No, instead of Government class we have Civics and Economics class. You have to take honors C and E to take the AP US History class, I made a 99 on the final exam in my class which was the regular class, and I have the all time record at my school. I took Honors US History last year and made a 98, and my two teachers tried to get me in the class which has been done before, but AP US is at another school and they are evil and screwed me up.

I took two college credited classes, one in 11th grade, and another in 12th grade.  The 11th grade one would be equivalent to a B (3), and I got perfect scoring on the 12th grade class.  Six years of Spanish and my teacher tells us all we technically only have the fluency equivalence of a first grader.  How discouraging Sad

Take as many as you possibly can.  Doing the extra work now is worth it, I assure you.  Plus, the cost is much less then what you will otherwise pay somewhere else.  Anything they will allow you to take that you know will be required later on, look into it.

I took English Language, English Literature, Calculus AB, Biology, Environmental Science, US History,   Psychology, and Music Theory when I was in high school. Passed all but Bio but only got credit transferred for Lit, Enviro, and Psych. Still, it (and a summer class) helped me take 12 hours for my last 4 semesters in undergrad. Was definitely worth it.

Last year I got a 5 in World History and a 4 (really, AP graders?) in European History. I took neither class. This year I've taken US History and English Language (both of which I took as classes), and I took Comparative Government and am taking Human Geography, both without taking a class.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I took AP US History. Would love to take Politics and Government, but we don't have the class.

You can/should still take the exam, it's not that hard at all. The only part I actually had to study was the specifics about the judicial system

I took Calculus AB back in the day. I got an A for the class grade, but only a 2 on the test, so no college credit.  I've never liked the idea of having a lot depend on a single test, as I can get anxious or distracted.

As a followup on this, received my score today - got a 4. Smiley If I remember correctly, no one in my school has ever gotten a 4 on it, so I guess you could say I got the highest score in school history. Tongue

(I go to a small school. We don't have the best preparation, normally)

Anyone else get results?
