AP Test scores

    I'm just so proud of these that I want to post them:

    Chemistry: 5
    European History: 4
    German: 4
    Calculus BC: 5
    Calculus AB Subscore: 5
    Physics C - Mechanics: 5

    My biggest surprise was the 4 in German... But the 5 in Physics was a nice surprise too. I pretty much skipped half of the free response section, so the 5 was welcome.

    Sorry, but like I said, I'm so proud of these I had to post them.

    So that should take care of your first semester freshman courses, right?

    Yours are admirable scores. What university do you plan on attending?

    I remembering running until I could find someone to share my 800 Math SAT.

    Well, looking at the Washington State University checklist (that's where I'm going, Loren), I can skip the following courses:

    Mathematics 171
    Mathematics 172
    Chemistry 105
    Chemistry 106
    German 101
    Foreign Language 100
    History 101 (GenEd 110)
    History 102 (GenEd 111)
    Physics Elective

    My god, that's a lot of courses skipped... is that a semester?

    AP Government and Politics 5
    AP Comparative 4
    AP Biology 5
    AP Macroeconomics 5
    AP Microeconomics 5
    AP Environmental Science 5
    AP Calculus BC/AB 5/5
    AP Spanish 4
    AP English 3
    AP Physics C 5/5

    These are my scores from the tests I took this year. Fail English right? The only one that really mattered too.

    I don't think 3 is failing, but it won't retire coursework. and CONGRATULATIONS! My daughter went the AP route and was able to skip a lot of courses. She's been maintaining a 4.0 GPA at college and hopes to attend law school at Stanford, sounds like both of you will be on the high road also!

    Any Stanford alums out there that she can network with? (I'm her mom, what can I say?)

    I'm not sure what these all mean but it sounds like it's good so: CONGRATZ CHAR!!

    AP in the US is "Advanced Placement", the highest score is a 5. Scoring high on these courses will replace related college courses (they are worth semester credits).

    The specific AP credit depends on the college. UCs accept 3s or higher from most of the AP tests as credit. An exception would be English Comp, which requires a 5 for full credit and exemption from R&C courses (the test I got a 3 in...). Ivy Leagues are much harder and although it varies upon each one, they usually accept only 5s on selective tests, meaning some tests aren't worth anything. This also includes schools that are similar to the Ivy Leagues, such as Stanford, MIT, Caltech, etc.

    Did you get your scores in the mail? I'm still waiting on mine.

    Congrats Char.limit & Anonymous217 :biggrin:

    You kids are lucky! Great job BTW! My school did not offer AP classes, so I had to take the dumbest classes my first quarter at college. It really set me back too, well that, and working full time will also do it.

    I got:

    AP US History - 5
    AP Biology- 4 (a very welcome surprise)
    AP Calculus AB - 4 (a very, very nice surprise considering I opened a calc book for the first time on February 2nd, wasn't in the class at my HS, and I was only one of two juniors taking it at my school)

    Next year I hope to take Physics C- Mechanics and Electromagnetism , and Calculus BC. Im unsure if ill take more. Both of these are going to be self study as my high school offers only a general physics course and AB calculus.
