AWPE exam

<p>Hey so I have to take the awpe exam on saturday May 9. The UC writing requirements website says that we can meet the writing requirements if "You have completed a transferable college English composition course with a grade of "C" or better (3 semester units or 4 quarter units). Is this true? So lets say I do not pass the awpe exam. But I received two A's both semesters for AP english lanauge composition my junior year in highschool and a B my first semester and a C my second semester for my senior year AP english literature. Does this mean I have met the writing requirement for UC's even if I fail the AWPE?</p>

<p>i think they mean community college credit. if ur ap score is a 3 or above, u miss the test as wel</p>

<p>Yeah, nets is right. You can't get credit from an AP class unless you get a 3 or higher on the collegeboard exam.</p>

<p>oh ok thanks I was kinda confused about that.</p>

<p>Yep yep. Good luck Sat. I'm taking it too, hoping to be placed into WRIT 2!</p>

<p>Good luck also man. What if we dont pass the test? Do we take like a remedial english class?</p>

<p>Yeah. Writ 1. Not the end of the world, though. I just know I can pass it if I get a good prompt haha.</p>

<p>Do you guys know if it's a particularly "tough" prompt/essay to write? Is it like the essays on the SAT's?</p>

<p>Ah ap lit is tomorrow!</p>

<p>As far as I know, you read a passage and respond t a question about it.</p>

<p>So I guess it depends on the passage.</p>

<p>Graded just like the SAT I essay portion.</p>

<p>two readers grade 1-6
so your score is between 2-12
8 + passes you into WRIT 2</p>

<p>if there's a 2 + point discrepancy between the two scorer's scores, then a 3rd scorer also takes a look</p>

<p>So if you get an 8 or below do you take remedial eng? Is it the same as WRIT 1?</p>

<p>Arg that sucks so badly! I'm scared not to pass but I have an A in AP Lit T_T</p>

<p>"So if you get an 8 or below do you take remedial eng? Is it the same as WRIT 1?"</p>


<p>And I'm scared too. I've been in Honors English since freshman year..but didn't do AP this year (even though I was recommended for it) so my writing can be strong if I put enough effort into it.</p>

<p>^ see I did too but I took AP Lit and I'm a horrible writer with a time limit. those 40 minute writes I die</p>

<p>"I'm a horrible writer with a time limit."</p>

<p>same. I can do really well on an essay if I space it out over a long period of time. Like usually, I'll just write a bunch of gibberish..come back in like 2 days..then refine it...come back the next day..refine some more..etc, etc.</p>

<p>I need those periods away from the essay.</p>

<p>Hence why I didn't do AP.</p>

<p>haha, yeah we mostly did those 40 minute writes on out of class books we read and I got generally 3 or 4s with the highest as a 9 (the only thing that saved my grade is that a 1 is still a C-) T_T but analytical essays out of class, an easy 4+ out of 5.</p>

<p>Well good luck tomorrow. I'm glad Calc BC is over with. Now I just have Psych on Tuesday.</p>

<p>Good luck! I dono how well I did on calc. AB, the free response was a lot harder then we practiced in class T_T</p>

<p>^I thinnk I got around 70%+ on the FRQ, but like 50-60% on M/ I know I got a 3..probably a 4..and if it's a SUPER easy curve I could possibly get a 5. I'm expecting a 4. Got a 3 on AB last year..but I think I got a 4-5 on the AB subscore this year anyways.</p>

<p>^ I donno, not totally sure. AHH WE SURVIVED THE ENGLISH LIT AP! I think I did ok, atleast a 3.</p>
