My terrible school newspaper. It's entirely opinionated and there are no factual articles. They print like 200 of these a month and no one reads them.

This is highly inconvenient, as many canalready see. Many students are skeptical about AP exams, and understandably want to take exams that they feel confident in scoring a 4 or a 5 on. This is a large sum of "THIS OPENION IS becomes very difficult to bring your grade up. Additionally, if you fail a test or do very poorly, you never re- ally go back and fix those mistakes, you just move on to the next chapter and hope to do better on that one. If you get lucky and do test correc- tions, you may understand how to do the questions on that test, but no one really cares if you have truly understood theconcepts behind them or if you will ever remember how to solve those types of questions later on. The most unfortunate part of this is that we still use grades to measure A LARGE SUM OF MONEY TO BE We all know about College Board, the company overseeing all of our AP exams, SAT Subject Tests, and SAT exams. If you were to search "College Board" on Google, the first thing that would come up is that it is a "non-profit organization", despite the millions of dollars it racks up from test registration fees. This year, College Board also worth, not waste possibly hundreds changed its AP exam registration of dollars on something that would process.

When I was a little girl, I used to love learning, and I would say truthfully that I loved going to school, because Igot to learn new things every day. Over time, however, I have noticed that slowly, that love and enthusiasm that I had ING BECOMES THE PAYING FOR A SINGLE money to be paying for a single test, so most would wish to get their money's PRIORITY OVER TEST" for learning has faded into monotony, and I have seen the same sort of lead to no positive outcomes. This new policy makes it seem like Col- GRADES, SCHOOL decline in my peers as well. I do not think that the reason for this is merely that we have grown up; I think that it is the school system and the larger educational system that we are in. In school, we are not allowed to take risks or be creative. Every single thing that we do is graded and as- sessed. Especially in English and oc- casionally history classes, where the material is more subjective, the objec- tive of the student is not to think out of the box about different interpreta- tions and perspectives, but instead to somehow predict what their teacher wants to hear. If a student attempts to do anything differently, they are punished with a bad grade which will inevitably affect their average in the class, as well as their overall GPA. Instead ofexploring their more creative sides, students are forced rescored. This gives no insight into how the students performed, or any indication of how they could improve for future examinations. Even with this large fee, students aren't able to see exactly how well they did, only a single number from one to five. It's justonenumber, noteven where com- pared to the four range, for example, their score fell. Given the money that families spend on these exams, more student score analysis should be given. One may also argue that these someone's intelligence. Being smart does not mean that you get good grades, and getting good grades does not mean that you are smart. What does "smart" even mean? as possible, to make students on the make you stupid. The SAT is an exam many students take multiple times in WILL NEVER BE want to take the test to pay earlier. Even when the students get their hopes of getting a satisfactory score they are happy with. This also results in more money being poured into the College Board, still a non-profit organization. SAT registration also has late registration, meaning that you can opt to take the test after the deadline, but for a late registration fee. The regular deadlines are quite early. For the December 14 test date, registrations were due by November 8. However, late registrations span until late November. During this time, students must pay an extra $30 late fee for the test. A $50 test can rise they want to take the exam for college THE MENTALLY credit. From now on, students have AP soores back, there is basically to register in October, months before no extra information on their per- the original registration dates. This formances on the website. Students means that if you have any thoughts and their families would have to pay of taking an exam, you would have extra fees to get their short answer response booklets back, or to get their multiple choice sections simply It just means that one has a talent for completing schoolwork and for answering test questions.

I don't know if that is true, but I do know that it is making me miserable now. How often do high school students look at an assignmentand feel excited about learning whatever it has to offer? I cannot recall the last time I have felt that way in the last five or so years. Until learning becomes the priority over grades, school will never be the mentally enriching and life- giving institution that it ought to be. for the workings of life in APbiology, we look for a 5 on the AP exam and better grades than the people sitting around us. We do not seek to better on one or two subjects that you are actually passionate about. By the time you get to them, you have neither the motivation nor the energy to dedicate yourself to actually learning about them, and you have to waste an exor- bitant amount of time on something that you have no interest in and that will never helpyou later in life. Ontop of that, there are unrealistic expecta- college applications. The SAT is also administered by the College Board, and costs about $50 with no essay, RECEIVES MILLIONS OF which costs anadditional $15.
