Alright guys, from lurking on these forums, I gather there are a lot of extremely intelligent people, and a lot of not-so-intelligent people. This thread is for the former in Advanced Placement classes in high school. I just wanted to possibly make a guide/help thread for those taking the tests in early May.

I took AP US last year, and got a 5, mostly thanks to this site.

I'm taking four this year: Ap Language and Composition, AP Government, AP Environmental Science, and, although I'm not in the Ap Calculus or whatever (school doesn't offer it, there's only three guys taking regular calculus anyways) I'm taking it.

Unfortunately, all the test dates occur *after* I get out of school, being a senior and all.

So now that I posted in here, does that mean I'm now one of the smart Uger's??

AP English 3

AP Algebra 2

College History (That counts as AP right??)

That's next year. I never really wanted to do well before, but then I realized that I'm gonna need to do that stuff to get into the colleges I want.

I don't wanna be in AP algebra 2, but my geometry teacher says I need to, and I hate the regular Algebra 2 teacher.

Also, you have been misinformed if you think there are a lot of intellectuals here.....
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

I'm gonna take full IB. Which is like AP, but it sounds cooler.
AP = Advanced Placement
IB = International Baccalaureate

-IB Psychology
-IB History of the Americas
-IB Chemistry 2
-Calculus
-IB Sr. English
-Elective

I will have no life my senior year.
#20
Not worried the least bit about my AP Language and Comp. exam, but my AP Government teacher barely teaches us anything at all so I'm a bit concerned with that class...
#21
Calculus AB and Environmental for me. I should do good on Calc, but my Environmental teacher is ****e so who knows what will happen there. Any tips from those who have passed either of these?

The IB program is the most pretentious and underwhelming program I've ever been in. It was disappointing in every aspect. I hate its vagueness and its binding contract. Not to mention each test is more than 200 dollars, and I'm having a hard time not believing it's a complete scam. To sum up IB in comparison with AP, it is twice the amount of work and half the amount of merits. I'm in IB Music, and was in IB Chem and IB English last year. I've learned nothing from any of the three and I regret choosing these classes and incurred a lot of opportunity costs. Honestly, if it's not too late to switch out of IB, please DO. There is NOTHING redeeming about it. Almost all of my IB (full and partial) peers who I've talked to have expressed disappointment and regret in choosing IB.

Anyways, onto good ol' AP.

Last year:
AP World History 5
AP Calculus AB 4

This year:
AP Economics
AP Statistics
AP Lit and Comp

I'm not worried about them.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Lol I have been trying, but they seem very firm in their belief that I will never get into a good college if I switch out.

Okay I switched out of IB and I got into:

University of Maryland
Penn State University
James Madison University
University of Hartford
University of Illinois
Berklee College of Music

Many colleges don't even know enough about IB to care if you switch out or not. They want to see your GPA, first and foremost. So tough it out this year with decent grades, and switch out to APs next year.

Oh, and thanks for the link, TS.

Alright, thanks. Hopefully I'll be able to convince them this time..
#31
For tests...

Wait until the last day to study, and when you do, make sure you study for that one class throughout the whole day.

I do it all the time, and it's only bitten me in the ass once

Taking AP World History this year

AP U.S. History and AP English next year

Really, AP classes in my school are the only classes that actually teach anything

the regular history classes are just a bunch of busy work
seriously, the teachers are just there to make sure you stay in school for another hour
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

AP isn't that hard. You just need the right explanations.

Taking AP English 3 this year. My first AP class ever so I'm aiming for a four on the test. The three essays are going to suck so much.

I've got AP Lang/Comp exam coming up soon, and AP Calc and Literature next year.


I'll be honest, I'm afraid.
