macroeconomics ap

You: lol it’s just an AP test Me, an intellectual: Now we are coming upon the biggest fight of our lives, we are preparing for war and it’s every man for himself. Not everyone will make it out of here with a passing score, and that’s just reality. We shall all fight, and while we lose some of you guys, it was an honor learning with you. God speed, soldiers, God speed.

Disability services exist for AP classes and tests

The college board offered a range of disability accommodations for AP testing and other standardized tests

don’t allow your school to screw you over by saying those services do not exist, especially for AP testing

make sure to get your information and necessary materials in at
least 5 months ahead of time

services like large print materials, Braille, and extended time exists for students with disabilities

don’t let your school screw you over for AP classes, don’t let them scare you out of taking AP classes if you have a disability

5.10.17 / ap hell is finaaaally over… i forgot how to breathe!!!! now, I’ve gotta catch up on the 4 projects I’ve been pushing off because of ap testing. these four projects are all due in less than a week. I’m tryna chill but life is testing me!

also that ap macroeconomics exam today kicked my ass. the dude sitting next to me in the testing room started to stack the gajillion pencils he brought because he had ~20 minutes left to spare on the FRQ portion. We played jenga with the pencils for the remaining half an hour until the proctor called time.
