Expectations:
Euro: 5
Chem: 5
Compsci: 4-5
Lang: 3-4

Some of my friends have gotten them already. I'm really nervous.
Alpha, if you go on college confidential, you can see people began getting them on the 5th. I think since I'm in California, I'll be getting them this week or next.

Some of these score distributions are kind of worrying....

How could so many people fail AP chem? I thought that was the easiest one.
On the other hand, I'm not surprised how many people failed lang.

Now I'll have to wait till Monday (at least) to get my scores. They didn't come in the mail today.

I took CompSci, Physics C (both of them), Psych, Stats, and Lit. I probably did pretty well on Psych and Stats... which don't count at all for my school, unfortunately. Lit I genuinely didn't care about and still don't, but CompSci and Physics C actually count, so I'm somewhat concerned. :?

Chia, those score distributions for CompSci and Physics C actually make me feel a little better, and the comment for Physics C mechanics is completely right - no one knew what to do for #3 in my class. I just scribbled down some equations and (I think) wrote an apology to the test grader. :lol:

Did anyone else take the Comp Gov test? Since 1) My teacher didn't actually know the subject, 2) My college doesn't accept it, and 3) Some questions should've been on the Gov test instead, I skipped half of the free responses by answering YOLO. Yeah, easily a 5 right there.

I know I bombed calc :D but I'm pretty confident in Bio and Spanish. Chem and lit - maybe fours?

My scores just arrived:

APUSH: 4

I certainly can't complain about those scores.

I just got my score today, too.

APUSH: 5. I chose the essay questions about the French and Indian War and the Cold War.

Nice birthday present, haha.

I forked over the $8 to get my scores today. On the only two AP tests I'll ever take, I got a 5 on APUSH and a 5 on Chem. I didn't study for either of them. I would have been horribly disappointed with a 4 on Chem, but I was expecting a 4 on APUSH just because I hate history. Fortunately I don't have to suffer through the stress of AP testing next year since I'm just taking college classes.

Just got back my results today:
Chem: 5 :)
Compsci: 5 :D
Lang: 5 :D :D :D
Euro: 4 :o :o :o :o :o
I really can't believe I got that 4 in euro... I got a 95 on an ap released test under testing conditions a week before the test, and I think I got about an 80% on mc on the actual thing. Neither bad enough to get me a 4. I'm just really surprised
I'm sending it in to have the mc regraded, and I think I'll ask for my free response booklet.

Still happy about the other three fives though

Chem: 5
Calc BC: 5
Eng. Lang: 5
APUSH: 5

I also checked to see how much these were actually worth and discovered that if I get all 5s next year, then I can enter into U. of WA as a junior. Fun times.
