State your class rigor and whether or not you have straight As (A- counts!).

I have the hardest course load in my grade and so far I have straight As. That might just change this year...Calc BC..

    I would have straight As, except for APUSH last year I got a B+. Grrrr.....

    D had straight A's all through a competitive HS but graduated last year. Don't know if that counts in your survey.

    8 APs, straight A's so far, pretty certain they'll stay that way. (8 is considered rigorous at our school I think)

    I have taken all the APs I could (except Honors Biology and Spanish IV, and Jr/Sr. English which I took at Ohio University) and I have straight A's both in high school and college.

    The only B's I've ever gotten were in advanced algebra II and advanced geometry (freshman and sophomore year). I had straight A's my junior year, but my courseload wasn't that rigorous. Not because I didn't want it to be, but because my school doesn't really offer AP's or honors courses. In my college courses over the summer I got straight A's too. :)

    Straight As? Hell no. :/

    rigor: private prep school (own classical curriculum based on Greco-Roman models) with no APs, but ridiculous amounts of work. We're talkin' 10-12 page history papers (the prompt for my final exam in Ancient History Freshman Year was "Analyze the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. Critique.") and a 30-minute thesis presentation at the end of senior year with a subsequent 30-minute period of Cross-Examination from a panel of judges. Yikes.

    Straight As (3.98 UW....dadgummit I made one 93 my freshman year (guess which class!), and it apparently doesn't average out, even due to its statistical unimportance).

    Pretty much the most rigorous courses at my school.

    Straight A's, as long as you don't count high school classes I took in 8th grade.

    S2 (current HS senior): One of only 3 in entire HS taking the very hardest curriculum. Doing multivariable calc this year, as well as AP Physics C. Did Calc BC and AP Chem last year, and self-studied AP World, APUSH, and APEL. All 5's. All A's his entire life. School grades on a 100 point scale. Cum. GPA: 98.32.

    I will have taken 87 college credits (homeschooled) by the end of my Senior year.

    I took the equivalents of BC Calculus and both Physics C classes in my sophomore year, and I will have finished Differential Equations and Organic Chemistry as well as several honors courses by the time I graduate HS.

    Do I have straight A's? No, I got one C in sophomore year :/ My professor was no good but I decided to stick through to the final and came within 3 points of a B (of 700 total points), but apparently he doesn't round up lol =(
