AP Psychology Discussion - 2011

<p>Be warned- no discussion of ANY multiple choice questions or discussion of FRQ's until at least 48 hours after the exam. Please consult this for more info:

<p>Personally, I felt the FRQ's weren't too bad, although I did the second question first, then the first question (no idea...).
On the other hand, I feel like I made sheer guesses on 20 to 40 of the MCQ's. I didn't really take any practice exams except SparkNote's online diagnostic test (which I took at 2AM, and actually got a scaled 2 on).</p>

<p>I'm actually considering cancelling my test. How'd it go for you?</p>

<p>What's the point of canceling the test? I thought AP scores did not affect admissions.</p>

<p>I think I did okay. Maybe a 4. I forgot some terms from the essays.</p>

<p>Easy. I'm glad that Barron's made their tests a lot harder than the actual exam, because it seemed really easy in comparison. I think I finished the MC section 20 minutes early, so I just went back and checked all of the stuff I was unsure about. However, there were maybe a handful of questions that were never mentioned by Barron's. Overall, very good on the MC. On the FRQs, I think there might have been one or two things I screwed up on the first FRQ, and I am pretty sure I missed one point on the second FRQ. I'm aiming for a 5.</p>

<p>Harder than my practice tests (which were CB material). Meh.</p>

<p>Thankfully, the FRQs involved mostly terms which I know.</p>

<p>PR was definitely somewhat easier. I should have tried Barron's out.</p>

<p>i did barron's. and i'm glad... there were a lot of random terms that I remembered from it.
missed about 20 of the MCQ
maybe 2-4 points off of FRQ
but who knows, may have missed more. just a guess :)</p>

<p>I thought it was easy..... I was unsure of maybe 15 of the 100....</p>

<p>Does anyone have a guess of the curve to get a 5? Like how many MC and FRQ points one can miss and still get a 5?</p>

<p>this is if both FRQ's were 8 points each, but this year there was one 7 and one 8, so im not sure how the differences apply

<p>There was about 15 that I wasn't 100% on, but of those 15 only maybe 5-7 were questions that I actually felt like I had a chance at missing.</p>

<p>The FRQ was so easy that I'm really only worried about whether I spelled a couple words right or not. haha</p>

<p>I'll be surprised if I don't get a 5.</p>

<p>To those reading this, please note that psychology (and social sciences in general) is one of my best subjects. Good luck to everyone! Hopefully there'll be 5s all around!</p>

<p>this year's frqs and mcqs for both ap chem and psych were a bit different than others.</p>

<p>^ I agree with you. I think there were about 15 or so I wasn't 100% on, but I still narrowed down a few choices and took my best guess. I think I missed 1-3 points on the FRQ. That's a solid 5, right?</p>

<p>According to this: <a href="http://ap.testfrenzy.com/curve.jpg%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://ap.testfrenzy.com/curve.jpg&lt;/a>
I would presume you'd need around 65%-70%ish on the MC, and, from what I read in Barron's or something, need like 5-6's on the FRQ's for a 5.</p>

<p>I owned the multiple choice so hard. I definately got atleast 90% correct.</p>

<p>BUT I didn't know about 6 FRQ--Borderline low five/high four. ONE TIME (5 obv)</p>

<p>lmao 6FRQ? thats alot bro. 6 questions...</p>

<p>woops10char</p>

<p>Well that test could have gone better</p>

<p>The multiple choice was reallyyy easy for me and I never even studied.... I think I got 95% on that. And then free response I couldn't remember one or two. But this will probably be the first and last 5 I get :/</p>

<p>I killed multiple choice and tanked on the essay. What the heck were all those random terms about? Luckily I took stat so everything statistics related was easy. I'm hoping for 4s on both the essays. Then I may have a chance of a 5.</p>
