Thoughts on my AP scores

Hello there! Not sure if anyone still uses this website but it looks pretty cool. You can call me Mercedes.

Anyways, I recently got back my scores for the 3 AP tests I took this year. I got a 3 for AP Computer Science Principles, a 2 for AP Precalculus, and a 1 for AP Macroeconomics. I didn't want my parents to think I'm unmotivated about college so I only told them about the result for CSP since it's the only test I got college credit for. I only failed the other tests because I didn't learn anything in my Macro class and I didn't properly manage my time on the calculator part of the multiple choice for Precal.

My mom didn't hate my score but she did remark that it could have been better and didn't understand why I'm no longer in the AB Honor Roll consistently. I think the thing that decreased my score from a 4 to a 3 was the performance task but I knew everything else since I'm one of the smartest in the Computer Science program so I didn't worry because I knew I'd still pass. Besides, I also became a Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer through my PCEP test around the same time so that helped to boost my confidence.

On the one hand, I can understand why she's concerned but at the same time, it hurts that she didn't celebrate this achievement because she usually celebrates my achievements in the Computer Science field. I guess the only good part about this is that I had my best friends congratulate me for my score on the CSP exam. For next year, I know AP Environmental Science will be an easy subject so I'll probably get a 3 or 4. I'm also taking AP Calculus AB but I heard the test is super easy so I'm hoping I at least get a 3. That's enough of my thoughts though. I'm definitely sticking around.

Comment Castles is a cool website and I hope to figure out the whole subs thing because I want to know if just typing something in the Sub box makes a brand new sub. I hope whoever reads this has a great day. The local time is 12:45 AM in Central Time and I'm still not tired. Bye Bye!

    If it makes you feel any better I only passed AP calc. I think the only other one I took was AP history.

    Regarding subs, yes, if you type a sub in the sub box and that sub doesn't exist yet then the sub will be created when the post is created and you will become the mod for that sub.
