AP curves

<p>Which AP exams have the nicest curves? How is AP chemistry's? How much do these curves vary from year to year? 8-20 points, right?</p>

<p>On the AP Exam? You need to get about a 60% for a 5. A 50% for a 4. A 35% for a 3. A 20% for a 2, and etc... (if I remember correctly). How that translates into points -> I don't know.</p>

<p>i believe the ap calc ab/bc has the "nicest" curve in the sense that you can get a 5 with a 70% or so, i think. you can get a 50% on the psych and still get a 3, i believe.
ap chem is a pretty generous curve as well because i did HORRIBLE last year and i pulled out a 3, somehow, considering i don't know chemistry and had a B/C in the class.</p>

<p>the scores ranges from year to year depending on the students taking the exam though so that's variable. this one genius messed up the ap chem curve this year though, i'm pretty sure of it. :p</p>

<p>Chem is definitely one of the most generous curves. I think 65% is a 5 or something like that</p>

<p>Yeah Chemistry usually has a nice curve. Although, honestly, it varies from year to year. Some years, the exam is easier so the curve isn't as generous. It depends on too many factors to answer your question exactly.</p>

<p>My Bio teacher told us we needed about a 67% to get a 5, 50% to get a 4, and 37% to get a 3. Then again, he is an idiot so feel free to dismiss all of the above figures.</p>

<p>Physics C: E&M is the most generous by far.</p>

<p>Human geography has the most generous curve, hands down. 58% for a 5, and something like 34% for a 3</p>

<p>Easiest: Physics C (~55% for 5) Followed by Human Geo and the other sciences and Calculus.
Hardest: The Economics (~80% for 5) French comes in close second.</p>

<p>^Oh fudge. I didn't know that about French. <em>weeps</em></p>

Easiest: Physics C (~55% for 5)


<p>Wow, everyone said it was the hardest so I've been spewing that misinformation back on these forums. 55% is so easy to do.</p>

<p>Difficulty is a subjective notion. I don't see how that's misinformation in this context.</p>

<p>Oops, in my post I forgot to mention that was the curve for Chem.</p>
