AP tests are not an American thing. They are taken worldwide and recognized in most of the largest international universities.
It would just be silly for a Canadian, or a German, or a Thai to take an AP US History class.
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCC CCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK KK.
Speaking portion. You get a canned Japanese voice talking to you, you have 20 seconds to respond and god help you if you miss a word.
Did I mention how utterly fucked I am?
SO AP MUSIC THEORY
yeah, I don't really need study help I guess, but I might be kinda fucked?
Considering that a 5 is a composite score of 64% or above... can't tell if this is a good thing or bad thing. The worst part of it is I am a vocal performer. This should be easy, but apparently instrumental kids learn their keys when they're like 10 or something? I never knew keys were important shit, I just listen to the accompaniment and sing the friggin' note. What is a minor keys help. TAT
Also taking AP Art History and AP Language/Comp., both of which I can probably help with even though I haven't taken the tests yet.
a minor keys:
natural: no sharps or flats (key signature)
harmonic: raise 7th; make that subdominant (G) a leading tone (G♯)
melodic: raise 6th (F to F♯) and 7th (G to G♯) going up, natural going down

definitely panic if there’s caviar
Of course, this is coming from someone who is apparently pretty pro at LA (even though it's my least favorite subject :/), so take that with a grain of salt.
Got AP Bio and AP Stat in 5 days and a week respectively. I tend to do not as great on FRQ for Bio as I do on the multiple choice, so I hope the multiple choice score is enough to get me a 5. As for Stat, well, I never found it necessary to study this entire year. So, of course, I barely remember half of the material. Fun!
Wasting ten seconds of your life ten seconds at a time.
Oh man, I have AP US History on friday, the next two nights are not gonna be fun...
I had AP Biology, and I felt fairly comfortable with the material and to be honest, a lot of stuff I rushed to study since class hadn't went over, was not on there. The test felt too easy and that's what's worrying me so far but in less than 3 weeks I will know my score and let's just hope for at least a 3.
Ah, AP English Literature. Just give me my results so I can roll around in the 4 that I'm hoping for (not shooting my hopes up too high, but at the same time, not shooting them too low) so I can go to college in peace and have a pizza party with my English teacher.
So wait. When do you take APs? As in, what age would you be at doing them?
As far as I know, we don't have them in the UK, or if we do, then I still don't know what they are. Wikipedia isn't helpful in this at all.

OH HEY YOU CANADIAN KIDS -
Take AP French if you can, and if you've done the French Immersion program. It's worth TWO 3-CREDIT HOUR COURSES (at least at UNB it was). Not bad at all for one pretty easy exam.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I KEEP SAYING "KIDS" AND WHY I KEEP TYPING IN CAPS
Remember, though: Not all AP credit is at all relevant! AP language credit, for me, would do nothing and would actually actively hurt me (there's a bonus/kickback in Texas for finishing with minimal credit hours [including Q-dropped classes]), so while there's no reason not to take an AP test, you may not actually take the credit; for instance, my AP physics (Physics B) is meaningless for an engineer, so I'd have six hours of physics 201 and 202 for no reason and still would have took physics 218 and 208.
Yeah AP courses are pretty useless to engineers, I ran into the same thing
I did four AP exams and got credit in university for half of one and that's it. Even though I did well. Engineering's just like that
