I like this change as it will help to balance out the regions but it has some deeper implications for SE and CE. It is not just Bucks County schools that will see a change but also Montgomery County Schools
Excerpt from letter:
In order to alleviate the situation, it has been decided to assign the Bucks County schools to the Central East Tournament at Kutztown University and to assign the Montgomery County schools that went to Kutztown University in years past back to the Southeast Tournament at Neumann University.
Thus teams like Perkiomen Valley and Upper Merion will be returning to the SE region. Unclear about Boyertown since they are both in Montgomery and Berks counties.

Depending on how the numbers work out I would think it likely to see CE C-div gain a spot to States and SE losing one. Thus for SE C-div it will likely become even harder for a new team to get one of those 7 state spots with the return of Perkiomen Valley which ranked 7th in the State last year and over the last 9 years has average 9th in the State. It seems the safe bet to predict that Harriton, LM, Rustin, Stoga, Penncrest, and PV will qualify from the SE region leaving one more spot.
Where did you get that 'excerpt from letter' from? is it on pascioly or something?

Yep, it affects C division pretty significantly. Perkiomen Valley is a constant top-10 contender being added to a region that already has several. It's looking like even more of a gauntlet next year, especially if they lose their 8th state slot.

I'm optimistic for Strath Haven HS this year... they might even make it to states ;)

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew how to access the previous national-level exams, for example the national exam in 2016, 2015, 2014, etc. Does anyone know how to access these national-level exams? I would like to find national exams that specifically pertain to Anatomy & Physiology.
I know that this chat encompasses Pennsylvania regional and state inquiries, but I was just wondering if anyone here knew anything about where to find the national level exams.

Thanks so much.

I believe they're available for purchase in the soinc.org store, though the topics for A&P have changed, so I'm not sure what you would want to use them for.

Giving away national level exams isn't allowed, you have to purchase them.

Southeast and Northeast seem to have snazzy new websites (though the content appears the same).
Everybody view spam the views. We must beat New Jersey.
Yeah, we're not going to do this.
