i 100% failed it lol..

<p>I 100% failed the Ap exam for World history...</p>

<p>What's going to happen to me now? Will colleges think im a retard??
Or think that my Ap World history classs provided by my school is an easy class (cause i have 90) because i failed the exam??</p>

<p>If i failed it , was it better for me to not take it?</p>

<p>Good job.</p>

<p>No, don't feel bad. I know that you may have felt that you failed it, but maybe you didn't. Even if you did, it happens to the best of us. Also, don't worry about colleges seeing the score. You don't have to report it, unless you decided to report the score before you took the exam. In any case, it was good that you took it. How were you going to know before the test that you weren't going to do well?</p>

<p>If this is your first AP (and it sounds like it is, WH is usually one of the first offered) at least you got the experience, now if you take further APs you'll know what an AP test is actually like and how much you really need to study.</p>

<p>Study next time</p>

<p>I wouldn't worry too much about it. There was a guy at the test today who opened the frq packet, stared at it for about 5 seconds, closed it, and then went to sleep for the next two hours. (Point is, kids like HIM are the stupid ones).</p>

<p>No one will think you're stupid. Ap tests are all about beating the system and knowing what to expect. I guess now you'll know for next year.</p>

<p>And you can always cancel your scores if you think you did THAT badly.</p>

<p>It's good that you took it. Although you did not pass the test colleges will look at your transcript and know that you challenged yourself.</p>

<p>Thx guys TT.</p>

<p>dang it i don't know how to quote but.</p>

<p>kcdecember,. what do u mean by "And you can always cancel your scores if you think you did THAT badly. "??</p>

<p>You can call CollegeBoard and have them cancel your scores for a small fee.</p>

<p>You can also let it go because you don't have to report your AP test scores to colleges. It is optional, and if you do report them you don't need to send an official report until you apply for AP credit.</p>

<p>If you think you did < 3 for sure, just cancel it - otherwise it will cost more to withhold it from colleges later if you want to send in AP Scores with your application.</p>

<p>Actually there is NO fee for canceling a score.
There's a $10 fee to withhold your score from going to a college that you put on the student packet.
However, if you do want to cancel the score, you must call the collegeboard by June 15th.</p>

<p>Yes, this means that you wont know what you got, but if you thik you actually did really bad, go ahead and call.</p>

<p>Can I choose to send my scores later when I know what I got?
Cause if not that is bs. I am taking a risk at whether I think I did good or bad.</p>

<p>This post isn't relevant to the thread but... I was wondering if I would lose points for attributing the rise of/beginning of Mali to Mansa Musa, rather than Sundiata who was Mali's first leader.</p>

<p>@Lambda - I thought there was like a $13 fee for canceling the score? Might be wrong, never done it before.</p>

<p>Either way, you still lose the $87 you payed to take the exam, no point in canceling unless you are sure you got a 1. Even then I wouldn't cancel.</p>

<p>First of all, you have no idea if you actually failed the test. Last year after doing HORRIBLY in my AP Physics class, I was sure that I had failed the AP Exam. Instead, I ended up with a 4 on the exam...as did my friends who hadn't necessarily done well in the class. So really, even if you THINK you did horribly, I'd tell you to just let it alone. </p>

<p>Besides, colleges seem to look more for the challenge of the AP class than the AP test itself. I know that I never had to submit any actual score reports with my college application, and am only sending a report now in order to get credit for classes. If you really did do horribly, I wouldn't worry about it terribly much--as others have said, now you know what to expect for your next time!</p>

<p>PS--the only people I know who have gotten 1s and 2s were the people who barely put any work down and circled random answers for the multiple choice.</p>

<p>Hey, I pretty sure I failed it too. I'm a self-studier and there was no AP World class at my school, so the odds are against me that I failed. Plus, I didn't even know how to write the essays, so I was screwed on that section. Don't feel bad for yourself too much.</p>

<p>Btw, you guys. What if I canceled my score and then retook the test?</p>

<p>Seeing that you self-studied and canceled your score, then no one but you will know that you even took the AP ;).</p>

<p>Um... you need a boost of confidence. Seriously</p>
