Since it won't give me question 2 after I finished question 1, probably not. Tongue

More seriously though, I'm not sure. I was in AP Biology back in high school and I did pretty well. It has been a while though (11 years since I graduated). If you don't use it, you lose it.

Well, through 10 questions I got six right (actually seven but my fat thumb pushed the wrong answer once) and I was stoked. But I have to admit, once Question 11 came up I was done. Too many questions and I'm not that curious.

28/35. Not bad for a physics guy who took Biology in 1967.

What's a 5?

I got 31 of 35.

22/35 and I got lucky on two or three of them. I guess I need to read more on the subject, but its not so bad for a history teacher (molecular biology was especially challenging, while the last ten question where extremely easy).

Got #4 wrong in a guess between two answers.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Never noticed the score they gave, were the questions graded in some way I wonder.

Bowing 5 is what is used for calculation of a high school student's GPA if they take an AP class, as opposed to the usual 4 for an "A". An "A" student who takes AP classes can have a GPA greater than 4.0, on this basis. My middle son had a 4.33 GPA, IIRC. He took Calculus and Physics Mechanics that required Calculus in high school. I sure wish that had been available when I was in high school, ca 50 YA. I took independent study (computer programming and linear algebra) in my senior year, but it only counted on a 4.0 grading scale.
