Impression of 2011 AP Tests

<p>How did all of you guys feel about this year's ap tests? Were they harder than expected? Easier? Let me know, as I am curious to what others thought of the exams. You can mention any of them and encourage you too as some of the ones you mention I might take next time. </p>

<p>I have and will take AP US History, AP Language, AP Psychology, and AP Environmental Science.</p>

<p>Alright, so I didn't think that the APUSH test wasn't so bad, the frqs and dbq were all pretty good. MC and FR were both pretty good on the psych test, I did think that the MC on the environmental science was harder than I thought, but pretty good for fr. Let's hope the AP Lang test won't be so bad as I suck at language arts and lit. So, does nobody have an opinion on how it went?</p>

<p>Here's a similar thread: <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/ap-tests-preparation/1141854-trend-2011-frqs.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/ap-tests-preparation/1141854-trend-2011-frqs.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>psychology was okay, apush was good especially considering the great dbq, calc BC was so hard in my opinion</p>

<p>I think they are more challenging to be honest. Prior to me taking the AP U.S History on Friday, i took the 2001 and 2006 Released APUSH exams. The multiple choice was easy. Now, when i took the exam on Friday, some questions were just intense. I narrowed down a plethora of them to 2 answers, but i had to guess from there. The FRQ's were really easy, though.
For APES, i thought the MC and Free-Responses were more challenging.</p>

<p>Not too bad, considering I took 5 and thought it would be just the worst week of my life.</p>

<p>I thought Calc BC was about the same, and biology was suspiciously easy this year.</p>

<p>Chem: NBD.
APUSH: So casual.
Physics: HOLY MOTHER I FAILED.</p>

<p>MC has generally been decent though.</p>

<p>My friends were saying how hard the Physics exam was with a bunch not able to put anything correct down for the FRQs.</p>

<p>^Yeah, this year's physics c mechanics exam was the worst on record; I can guarantee that. The CB must have easy curves in mind or we'll be seeing a lot of 3's and 4's scored by people who would've otherwise gotten 5's.</p>

<p>i agree... bio was easy but each answer was reallyyyy time consuming...</p>

<p>Do they release the curve each year after the scores are out, so you can see approximately where you were at? I've never seen it from previous years, but maybe I just don't know.</p>

<p>Wait, what exactly was it about the mech FRQs that were so hard? Can someone explain?</p>

<p>^You'll see them on Wednesday on AP Central. You'll understand then.</p>

<p>All right then....(Though I may not find it hard; most of my class found the B FRQs hard but I only found one of them hard).</p>

<p>I ask because I'm taking the C exams late on May 20</p>

<p>Well, #1 was impulse-momentum, #2 was forces/energy, #3 was lab/rotation. And if you look on the Physics C threads on CC, you'll see that most people thought the FR's ranged from difficult to assrape.</p>

<p>Could you give me a question that is similar to the questions that were asked? I'm slightly impatient.</p>

<p>I thought ALL of my exams were easier than I predicted - Calc BC, Bio, and Literature. Yay for me I guess...makes my decision to NOT take the Physics C exam even better.</p>

<p>Everyone told me that their AP's were easier than they thought this year with the exception of the AP Calc. </p>
