Calc AB 5, Chem 5, English Lit. 4, which is similar to the APUSH 5, Bio 5, and English Language 4 I got last year, but I'm not complaining I guess. I'm just glad there won't be anymore AP tests in college, I guess finals and such will more than make up for it though.

5 APUSH
5 APCS A
5 AP Psych

And Comp Sci AB will be going on for one more year, then they kill it.
tl;dr - I said nothing important.

Biology - 5
Chemistry - 5
Computer Science AB - 5
Physics C: Mechanics - 5
Physics C: Electricity/Magnetism - 5
Literature - 4

That lit score ends a streak of 15 5s in a row, but I had no idea I would get 5s on the physics tests. In fact, I got so stressed out on the Mechanics free response that I actually wanted to quit the test entirely and cancel my score.

I have a question: I got a five (5) (cinq) on my AP Human Geo exam, and I was under the impression that if one did really really well (not that I did nearly that well) your score would be a five with distinction. Is this true? I heard this from my classmates so now I'm not sure after I couldn't find any mention of "five with distinction" on the interwebs.

(I know about the AP scholar with distinction award, I'm not talking about that.)

Sophomore Year:

European History: 3 (I honestly stopped caring, and kind of gave up on history in general

Junior Year:

Chemistry: 5 (I'm so happy about this, especially since everyone in my class was talking about how they did so badly on it)
U.S. History: 4 (Like I said, I don't care at all about history, but my teacher flat-out didn't teach, so this is all my own effort here)
English Language: 5 (I kinda figured on this from the start, since I never got less than 5 on all the practice exams and breezed trough the test)

Not half bad, as far as I figure

No, the scores go from 0 to 5 with no distinctions pegged on at any point.

I do wish they would tell you if you got a totally perfect score. It's just that AP Comp Sci A was... so simple, that I feel like I might have actually gotten a perfect score. Oh well.

Chem: 5

You know, it's pretty anticlimactic. Hours of studying and hours of testing and hours of worrying and all you get is that score. No details about what you got right / wrong or anything like that.

Most happy about lang and art history. The art history test was a lot of fun.

politics & gov. : 4 (didn't actually take the class)
physics B : 4 (didn't learn a ton of stuff on the test, i think about half the free response)
i still was expecting a 5 for government, but i don't think it will especially matter.

07:
Eng. Lang. - 5
USHistory - 5
Calc BC - 3/4AB

08:
Eng. Lit. - 4
US Govt - 5
Physics B - 3 (I took it late and had pretty much quit school by then)
C: Mechanics - 3 (I thought I would get a 4, but whatever, the FR was murder)
C: E&M - 4 (Biggest wtf ever. I thought I failed this miserably and really wanted to cancel my score)

Overall, I'm in good shape. If I end up switching from Engineering to a Liberal Arts major, I won't have to worry about getting science credits. :) I didn't do anything beyond the classroom for my English, History, and Government tests and got 5s. Then I work my bum off for Physics and Cal and end up with 3s. I think College Board is trying to tell me something.

'08:
5 Calculus BC
5 Chemistry
4 Statistics
4 English Language

I really should've been able to get a 5 in statistics. Ah well, I was the only person taking it, so at least there isn't anyone with a 5 to gloat over me.

Eng Lit I got a 4.
I thought I could pull off a 5, but what pissed me off the most is that I didn't find out about people writing "we are Sparta," then crossing it out until after I had written. :(

I got a 4 on AP World History. My first AP Test.
I know I should be happy because it's still a decent score but I know I could have gotten the 5 if I studied, so I'm quite disappointed with myself.
Oh well I'm taking AP US and AP English next year with a ton more the year after so I have plenty of chances to make up for it.

Sophomore:

Biology - 5
Comp Sci AB - 5

I'm happy about Biology, I self-studied for that one and I thought I was close to the 4/5 cutoff. Just too many damn plant questions. >_>

5 - AP Physics Mechanics
5 - AP Biology
4 - APCS AB

Biology was one hell of a class this year. (It was my only year of biology).

I have to admit that my scores made me rather happy this year.

'05:
World History: 3 (No excuse, I obviously gave no shit.)

'06:
European History: 4

'07
US History: 4
Art History: 5
Biology: 5
English Language: 5

'08:
Calculus AB: 4 (In my wildest dreams, I did not imagine I'd even pass this test. As much as I love math, I know I utterly fail at it.)
English Literature: 5
Human Geography: 5
Environmental Science: 5
US Government and Politics: 5

Not bad.

2007
US Gov - 5
Human Geography - 5
2008
World History - 5

I feel kind of bad about the History grade though, because I didn't really study at all, and my friend who worked her ass off only got a 3.

I guess gloatings OK if everyone else is doing it....

Calc AB: 5
Latin Vergil: 5
US History: 5
Chem: 5

Chem was a nice surprise for me! My teacher had said to me, "Hey, I really hope you're not aiming for a 3, because I know you can get a 4 if you study really hard."

Calculus BC - 5 (*shrug*?)
Stats - 3 (I stopped really doing anything Statistics related back in... November?)
Physics C: Mechanics - 5 (I expected it, I got lucky because I did torque stuff during the school year that was much more difficult than what they had me do on the FR)
Physics C: E&M - 4 (I misread an entire problem. Or, part of it. I got the shape of the object right. But I read "solid nonconducting" instead of "conducting shell". Oops.)

I got the scores I needed to skip the classes I wanted to in college. That's all I really wanted.

AP US Politics and Gov- 5
AP Macroeconomics- 5

I was pleasantly surprised on the Econ score...because the multiple choice part was freakin' ridiculous. The Gov test was easy as cake though.

APUSH-5 (I was incredibly surprised...I COMPLETELY misread one of the essay prompts and wrote the entire essay about an era that was 50 years later than what the question asked about.)
AP Latin Vergil-5 (Also surprising, seeing as how I ran out of time and my answer to the last essay was basically "Anna. She was pretty awesome 'cuz she was nice to Aeneas. Evander. He was also pretty awesome 'cuz he was nice to Aeneas. The end.)

I was surprised, but I was happy. =D

Next year I'm taking 5 AP courses, and considering self-studying for one more. It'll be a fuuuun year.

Calc AB: 5
Physics B: 5
Latin Vergil: 4

To be honest, the last one was the only test that was even remotely difficult. Physics did require some effort and a bit of last-minute formula memorization (when I discovered that you don't get an equation sheet on MC), but calc was cake, perhaps the easiest standardized test I have ever taken. Now, that may have been because we finished the curriculum a month before the test and took about 8 practice tests.

SATIIs are pretty much the same:
Math II: 800
Physics: 800
Latin: 680

wow, I feel like a slacker. I only ever took three APs...

APUSH-4
CHEM-3
ENG. LANG.-4

To be fair, though, I only studied for the chem ap, and that because our teacher was not only new, there was no AP chem class, so I did it all on my own.
