    Definitely. Except I didnt do a ****load of studying. I'm more worried about macro-econ and physics. I knew I signed up for too many AP's

    I'll probably tear my calc 2 finals up (if the previous exams provide any hint to the future, that is), despite only studying a little bit on drawing polar graphs .

    AP Calculus test tomorrow. I want to cry. I know the subject, but it's effectively risking 9 months of work on one test. If I get a 1, someone, somewhere is dying. I don't know who, but they'd better watch out.

    I'm sure glad I get college credit for some of my high school classes without having to take any sort of standardized Advanced Placement or similar exam! By the time I graduate from high school next year, I should have gotten college credit for American history, French (two years), (college) freshman composition, and physics--all without taking an AP exam.

    For all of you who do have to take a single standardized test to get that college credit, I wish you the best of luck.

    last time i took an ap test was us history, got a 3. i don't think a two or one allows college credit, and 3 doesn't allow credit at some more prestigious colleges.

    at least you won't know that you got a one (if it happens) for some months now...

    If you get a 1, you know pretty much nothing. I got a 5 on every AP I took, and there were definetely subjects where I was deserving of a 7 (AP Comp Sci) because I was so much stronger in that than in Electricity & magnetism which I got a 5 in. IMO, the AP tests are graded very leniently, a 5 means mild (possibly to moderate) competence in a subject, definetely not having a really strong grasp.

    Jesus ****ing Christ on a goddamn bagel. I just got done with the AB test...that was the hardest thing ever.

    Multiple choice was fine. I answered 37/45, and I'm pretty sure I got those all right.

    Free response was HORRIBLE FLAMING DEATH. I only answered one or two completely, and I wasn't positive on any of it. Gah. I could feel the credit slipping from my fingers.

    I'm literally sick to my stomach now. I feel like dying.

    =(

    welcome to my world.
    i'd ask you if you meant AP test and not AB test, but for some reason the words "HORRIBLE FLAMING DEATH" stick to my mind...
    too bad.
