So, a couple days ago College Board released AP scores for this year. Here are my results:
Environmental Science – 5
U.S. Government – 5
Macro Economics – 4
Literature & Composition – 3 (not happy with that)
B.C. Calculus – 2 (definitely not happy, but expected somewhat)
Scores I got last year were:
U.S. History – 4
English Language – 3 (not happy with that)
Physics B – 3
For those who don't know, AP classes give high school students the chance to take college-level courses. These courses run at a more in-depth level and a higher pace than classes of a honors level or even lower, a regular level. A major benefit to AP courses other than an introduction to college-level intense classes is that these courses are bonus points on college applications, and most colleges offer credit for passing grades on the AP tests.
Passing grade is 3 or above. The scale is thus:
5 – Very well qualified.
4 – Definitely qualified.
3 – Qualified.
2 – Possibly Qualified.
1 – Not Qualified.
I have heard of a grade known as *, but that's only given to those who don't even bother answering questions on the test, or making a mockery of the test. Again, I'm not even sure if that grade exists, only heard of it from a few teachers.
