My AP Post

All right, so I made my mind yesterday to call the automated AP grade reporting service from the College Board. I know I could have waited 3 or more weeks to get my free grade report in the mail, but I figured $8 wasn’t really that much – just a little more than an average meal at a fast-food restaurant – of a price to pay to know my grades right this very instant. Actually, I’m glad the service is available 24 hours a day, as I made the decision to retrieve my grades at about 2:30 in the morning.

So, I have the feeling that everybody is just dying to know what my scores were; I’m going to post them. But first, I should warn – no, advise – anybody who may want to call the number (1-888-308-0013) to find out his or her AP grades to know that even though the official AP “Student Pack” and the official AP program’s website say that a Discover card is a sufficient form of payment to receive grades, it actually is not. I had every intention of entering a Discover card number to get my grades, but I soon found out that the system will only accept Visa or MasterCard (and quite possibly American Express, too, but I don’t remember anymore. What kind of person would use American Express, though, anyway?)

AP English Language & Composition – 5
AP Calculus AB – 4
AP German – 4
AP Macroeconomics – 5
AP Microeconomics – 5

All in all, I’m not really surprised at all at what my scores were. I wasn’t completely sure that I'd get a 5 on the three tests that I did get one on, but I hadn’t ruled out that possibility either, so it wasn’t really much of a shock for me to find out that I had, indeed, gotten the three 5s.

As I discussed in a previous post, I had a pretty good feeling that I’d get a 4 on the German test, even though I would’ve liked a 5. I’m not disappointed, however, just slightly upset that the material on "my" AP German test wasn’t quite as in line with what I would consider to be my chief strengths in the German language. I found the material on the 2002 test that we took for practice a couple of weeks before the actual examination to be much more to my liking.

All in all, I calculated the average score on all of the AP tests I took throughout high school and came up with something around 4.5 or so. This average, when combined with the fact that I obtained a 4 or better on all of the tests that I took, means that I will be a national AP scholar when the College Board announces the names of all the scholars sometime this fall or winter.

Oh yeah, because I got a 5 on both of the economics test, my name, assuming that Mr. Stark will not be housed in a new room at the start of the 05-06 school year, will also go up on the "AP Economics Wall of Fame" on display in room A144 at Brainerd High School.

Congrats on your scores. I honestly thought that you would've (could've) pulled off a 5 in AP German, but 1/2 of your scores were fives, so that's definatly not something to gripe about... The Pear Tree sounds like a really good idea... Have you thought about growing grapes. I hear that they turn out good aswell.

Tiger Woods, Robert DeNiro, and Mike Kyschesvakdajadski (Duke's b-ball coach, no clue on the last name spelling) all use American Express. At least according to those dramatic commercials.

And your name would be there anyway. I'm sure he would just transfer the sheets...Stark is pretty proud of that wall.

Congrats on the scores!
