AP Scores 2010

Posted 15 July 2010 - 04:54 PM

I just got my AP Scores in today, so I guess a lot of you all gotten yours back as well (if you took AP Exams). So what did you all get? How did you expect to do?

I got:
Computer Science- 5 (My easiest exam)
Calculus AB- 4
Chemistry- 4
Statistics- 4

I wasn't too surprised with any of them except Stats, b/c I was dead by the time I got to the exam, and I didn't feel confident (at least 95% confident ;)) in my answers.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

well i can't say anything about Computer Science or Calculus.... I'm taking AP Calculus BC and AP Computer Science next year. However, i did take AP Chem this year..... did pretty bad on it though. i got a 2. i have to say though, i blame my teacher. she wasn't so good at teaching AP. I mean.. dang, even for HER tests, we weren't ever rightfully prepared. even when we did the reviews she'd give us for it. most of the time the reviews were focusing too much on one thing that the tests wouldn't focus on at all.. it was really agitating. we were all basically always studying for the wrong stuff.... which resulted in bad test grades. and bad AP scores. most kids in my class got ones. :( and i also somehow managed to do horrible in AP U.S. History.... i got a 2 on that one as well. it was the most disappointing one considering i felt it was the easiest (i mean dang i got a 4 on the World History AP test.... you'd think U.S. history would be easier, the class certainly was). and then for AP english 3 i got a 3 on my AP test. i didn't so well this year.... and my rank in school probably dropped too.... maybe i'm number 7 or 8 now.... i was number 5. and before that 4. and before that 1. this year though i'm determined to turn myself around and take back Valedictorian. XD and get good AP scores haha

Good job, everyone!

@Dogstopper: You can always retake it next year. You probably don't even need to brush up on GridWorld, as they give you the API plus some source code.

If you want to be prepared for the computer science test (even though i didnt take it i studied for it over about a month long period before i decided not to take it) buy a barrons book. I got a barrons book for calc and it worked fairly well. Kaplens also makes a good AP Calc AB/BC book. PS. I got a 3 on AP world last year. Had no clue on one of the essays, but i think i nailed the one about the silk road! lol

I'm morally opposed to any AP test that requires you to study a case study. How about you give me the API on the test and if I can use it I'm good?

Grats on the scores. Even though my HS had CS courses, we never bothered with the test. We did have French, English, Bio, Anatomy, Calc, and History, although I only took the French (4, which was pretty good considering we prepared for a week). I would like to have taken History, but the class conflicted.

@ItIntern3: Forget the barons book, just help out on the Java forum. You'll be so over-prepared it's not even funny.

@xclite: I agree there. Honestly, I wish they'd drop GridWorld and put data structures back on the test. It's not like it's an even remotely useful library. At least teach Swing instead, as it is very OO.

I got a 4 in AP Gov, a 3 in Lit, and a 1 in Euro.... I drew on that test haha

I'm not terrible at writing, but I really don't enjoy it (especially if its a topic I really dislike) thus the poor scores and drawings in my Euro exam.

Are these AP exams similar to GCSE's or A Levels?

@clockworkjordan: Ouch. I got a 4 on Euro last year, and I loved the class and subject. I'm not a huge fan of the art, but other than that, I enjoyed most of the class.

@m-e-g-a-z: It looks pretty similar to those.

Good job! You were crazy to take 7 APs in one yearm but it looks like you came out ahead in the end.

That sucks about AP CS. I hate GridWorld too, as I'd rather see Data Structures in it's place. Hopefully next year means a 5. And you have a year on DIC to get even better. :)
