MOCK AP TEST - Congrats to the high scorers!


To give you a sense of how a 72 might score on the AP Test:
A score of a 72 would get a "5" if they scored 4 of the 7 points on both FRQs.

Quote: "You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." - Steve Jobs

Agenda:
1. MOCK AP Test Corrections: You may not take these questions outside of the classroom. 

2. Mr. Duez will sign any exemption forms... although it is questionable as to why one would exempt the fall final (wouldn't the spring be much better, after the AP Test?).
