I took it last year as a Freshman and got a 3 on the Exam solely because I had the worst teacher imaginable. Not a single kid in my class of 2 Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors and Seinors got an A, NOT 1!!! She made an easy class insanely hard. She made her own test and made them really hard to pass averages were about 65%, and did a terrible job preparing us for the Exam. I regret not getting a different teacher, or if I waited until this year to take since I would got a better teacher who's been teaching the class for a long time. I would of gotten an A, and maybe even a 5 on the Exam, I feel like I could learn the material better because a lot of the stuff I learbed pertained to World History which I'm taking this year. I think in my class we had 1 5, a lot of 2's and 1's and some 3, and barely any 4's. So I would just say depends on your teacher. If you self study it you'll probably do fine.
