<p>as posted in the other thread. i really like my results, many thanks for the heads up :D</p>

<p>Assuming you pass the Texas Gov't Test at orientation. What is the score needed on the Ap Gov't test to claim credit?</p>

<p>I thought I had read that you needed a 4 or a 5 for the AP Gov in order to add the Texas Gov questions test and get credit for 310 but now I can't find anywhere where it says that. (If you get lower than UT's allowed score on AP Gov, you can take the CLEP U.S. Gov test and the Texas Gov questions test.) My daughter got a 4 and her "Claim Credit" page tells her to take the Texas Gov questions test, so a 4 is okay. But is a 3 okay, I wonder?</p>

<p>thats what I was wondering too...there are a few tests where a 3 is acceptable, but Econ and American History requires a 4 or 5 so I am not sure.</p>

<p>If it is says "Dept Advice: Before your eligibility for credit can be determined, you must take additional test items developed by UT Austin. See UT Austin Items on Texas Government ." for my 3 on the AP gov't test is it safe to assume that a 3 is accepted with a passing score on the texas test?</p>

<p>No one really knows...just take the Texas test and they will tell you whether or not you get credit.</p>

<p>The Texas test is completely random and there is no passing standard. I've heard of someone who got 3 right and still got credit for 310L.</p>

<p>So just go in, take the test, and see what happens.</p>

<p>Yeah, I got a 3 and took the TX Gov test the second day of registration and I got credit for 310L</p>

<p>Is the TX Gov test hard if you didn't grow up in Texas, though?</p>

<p>I grew up in Texas and it was hard. I knew only the general questions that I had learned in my US Govt class, i.e. the power the Speaker of the House holds, etc.</p>

<p>Texas Government is not taught in Texas high schools. Most kids don't know that the Lt. Governor, for example, is the most powerful man in the state, or that we have 2 courts of final appeal, the Supreme Court for civil cases and the Court of Criminal Appeals.</p>

<p>Basically almost everyone, whether or not they grew up here, goes in to the test and picks the answers which seem to make the most sense of the choices. Given how outdated and complex our constitution is, many of the answers which make the most sense are wrong.</p>

<p>Just go in and try to do your best and I think you will get credit. I have never heard of anyone who has passed the AP exam not getting GOV 310L credit because they failed the Texas Government test. It's merely a formality that they have to give you because of certain requirements in state law, not something they seriously use to determine whether you should get credit.</p>

<p>Thanks so much.</p>

<p>Anyone take the Chem 301 test?</p>
