AP Exam Scores!

Amazing child is amazing:



And this gives him an average of 4 on the 11 AP exams he has taken, which should earn him the National AP Scholar award** - which is a ridiculous thing to earn in 10th grade.

Here are the score distributions for the tests he took:

Calculus BC (he got 5)
5: 48.4%
4: 15.5%
3: 17.6%
2: 5.9%
1: 12.6%

English Literature and Composition (he got 4)
5: 7.4%
4: 17.7%
3: 29.5%
2: 33.4%
1: 12%

European History (he got 4)
5: 7.9%
4: 16.2%
3: 29.5%
2: 34.2%
1: 12.2%

Macroeconomics (he got 4)
5: 16.1%
4: 23.4%
3: 16.2%
2: 17.5%
1: 26.8%

Microeconomics (he got 5)
5: 15.3%
4: 27.3%
3: 23%
2: 14.4%
1: 20%

Physics 2 (he got 4)
5: 8.5%
4: 16.7%
3: 34.3%
2: 32.3%
1: 8.2%





The head of AP for the college board has been tweeting teasers about the different exams for the past month. Nerve wracking things like

"More than 40% of AP Macro students found FRQ2 on loans/demand deposits extremely difficult, earning 0 pts:"

and

"On the AP European History Bismarck DBQ, ~3% of students earned all 7/7 points possible; most frequent score: 1/7."

:/

He's compiled them all on storify, so I'm including that link as well for anyone who would like those interesting statistical nuggets for the various exams.


**Granted to students in the US who receive an average score of at least 4 on all AP Exams taken, *and* scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.
