Why do you have a sideways picture of a girl with fake pink hair? Because it's your picture, therefore your decision. :) Just like his picture is his decision. Not tryin' to be mean, just pointing out the obvious.

18 - They're required, basic knowledge tests that start as early as elementary school and go all the way up to high school. Basically the OP is a complete dipshit to have failed one.

In Texas, they are called TAKS and you take them every year. From 3rd grade to 11th grade, and if you pass them as a junior you don't need to take them as a senior. If you fail you don't pass and you retake them till you pass.

In Florida it's a test called the FCAT. they are mostly easy, but I will admit the science one is the most difficult to pass. They aren't curved. They get scored 1-5 depending on how many points you got. Minimum passing score is a 3 or 50%. They are set up so that 50% you should have learned that year, 25% you should have learned the year before, and 25% you shouldn't know. They are multiple choice and everyone get a different test so you can't cheat.

in Kentucky it's called the KCCT test and you take the 3-11th grade but in 9th grade you don't take it either. but we have an exit exam to graduate that covers 9-12 grade.

I'm from Texas too, 149. TAKS is ridiculously easy. if you put forth effort to actually learn in school, that means not taking blow off classes like math models, then you do fine. If you hated school and thought it was pointless and didn't try to become smarter, you should expect to not do well. Either way, it's entirely you're choice.

We can't put all the blame on OP. I'm in all AP classes, study constantly, yet I'm horrible in trigonometry. However, I excel in global history. Certain subjects just don't come to people. I have a regents in trig, but I don't feel I will do well.

YDI for being an idiot. I have never in my life studied for the Dakota STEP (South Dakota) and I've been in the advanced level on every portion of the tests. seriously. some of the special kids can get that even..

YTDI. they are very easy no matter what state you're in. You don't even have to be a super genius nor study that hard. If you put the effort to do the homework, take notes, and pay attention in class, you wouldn't be in such a mess.

178, your comment makes me want to punch you in the face. The new york regents suck large hairy monkey nuts. I don't take my science one til next week, but so far I've taken global history and algebra (though, that one was a retake to get a higher score) and during my global regents, I had a legit panic attack, because I had to do 50 multiple choice questions, and write 2 essays, all in 3 hours...so, fuck you :) have a nice day!

119 - yeah I just took my last one in April. Lowest I've made on any state test is 550/600. But I live in Mississippi so our state test don't take much to pass. Maybe it's harder in other states

All you tweenies who thought those tests are hard are fine examples of the indictment of the education system. We have those tests in Canada too, and it takes quite the idiot to fail.

Reply

who cares about canada! what do they even contribute besides maple syrup!? that kid said he got 3 HOURS for 50 q's and two essays!!!?? holy crap I hope you got at least an hour nap in there.

234 I agree...212 ur just a retard im in ny and im always done with those tests in less than an hour and half(after 1:30hours they let u out) ...I don't think any kid stays there all 3 hours

163, that's interesting. Where I go to school, a C is the passing grade. I wonder why it's like that where you live. :) Side Note: This comment is sincere and is not intended as an insult or to be read sarcastically.

I never got less than 90% on one of those tests, and I never gave anything more than 10% effort. if you listen in class you have it made. I never even did my homework. tl;dr studying is a bullshit excuse and a waste.

Reply

Not necessarily, not everyone grasps material as well as you. It does help to listen in class, but some people, like myself, need extra studying to be able to do well on tests.
