then why do less than 20 percent of people make 5's? This is the same case with Environmental Science and Comparative government, on which 9 and 13 percent of examiners receive 5's, though both are considered easy to self-study.
On the other hand, Calculus BC, Comp Sci AB and Physics C have the HIGHEST
5- rates though (at least the latter two) are considered one of the most difficult APs.
Does anyone know why these percentages are so counter-intuitive?
Are the test-takers smarter, or is the curve just easier?
