I get the last laugh!

Remember how I mentioned that AP tests laugh at me behind my back? Well, it's my turn to laugh at them! Starting July first, Collegeboard gave people the option of calling in and getting their AP Scores. I only took one AP test this year (AP Calc BC) and had a bit of an issue with it. Read the above link to get the full story, but this pic should be a reminder of what went horribly horribly wrong:

Yeah, I drew a comic on the last question. I decided that I should call Collegeboard and see just how much that hurt me. My score?

A 5.

Yes, that's right, after drawing a comic and getting the last short answer question completely wrong, I sitll got a 5. Also, I would like to mention that during every single practice AP test we took in class, I never got more than a 40%, which leads me to believe one of two things happened while my test was being graded:

1) I got almost a perfect score on the multiple choice section and that buffered the disaster that was the short answer.
2) Somebody who was at CPW or goes to MIT/CalTech graded my test, saw the comic, and just gave me a 5.

I'm not sure which happened, but I wouldn't be surprised if it had been either.

So, AP tests, I'd just like to let you know that you can quit your laughing. It's my turn now!

Okay, now I see it, ha-ha.

Silly me, that's the same image you posted a while back.

I found your blog from a link on the MIT admissions site. I'm part of the class of 2011 too, so I guess we'll be going to the same school soon enough.

Anyway, congrats on your 5. My school doesn't offer Calc BC, but I read your post about US History last year and it did suck. I was the only person who took the test at my school so I got complete breakdown of my scores. I did fine on everything except the woman's issues essay, which was REALLY bad. 11 (11 = lol).

Only you could pull off something like that. I am very impressed.
