    Should I be afraid?

    What are usually on these tests? Because I don't remember anything from this school year anymore...

    I don't know what it's like in Russia, but the tests are all pretty simple in the US. I was home-schooled for grade school, then when I took the high school placement exams I placed way above where I should have. They mistook the fact that I could think for actual skill, which caused me some trouble.

    If you're worried about placing low, don't be. I can tell by your posts that you are fairly intelligent (if a bit disturbed). Just do your best, you should be fine.

    I guess this is when they determine if you're fit to be handed over to a kolchoz in Kamchatka...

    lol, I live in the US [​IMG]

    Thank god for me moving to florida before taking these, I got into the 99% percentile on all 3 tests. I know why, too. NO ASIANS IN FLORIDA! Its a strange void but at least theres no one smarter than me to up the average scores on these tests.

    I have the choice to go to all honors if I want to.

    @ Linkiboy: Then why is your country set to Russia in your profile?

    I would actually suggest going in all honors classes. It's not nearly as difficult as you may imagine. AP classes are a bit different though... :\

    "In soviet russia, born and raised
    Nizhniy Novgorod is where I spent most of my days
    Chilling out, maxin, having some fun
    shooting my friends witt a plastic gun
    when a couple of militia
    who were up to no good,
    started recruiting people in my neighborhood
    my mom saw them and she got stressed
    and said you're going to go live in the US"

    The question is, what good will honors biology do for me? That is one class that I won't take honors probably. My current schedule is:

    English I (h)
    Religion I (manditory, private school)
    World History (h, maybe)
    Geometry (h)
    French II (h) (got a year of credit from middle school)
    Biology
    Algebra II (h)

    There are too Asians in Florida :/

    Obviously you haven't played in an orchestra in Florida that you have to audition to get in to :/

    Also, haha@you having to take religion. Only some private schools make you take that, the one that I almost went to (but decided to stay at the public school I was in since it was actually better :/) was religion-free. So haha.

    Yes you're right, there are two asians in florida, how silly of me.

    Anyways I'm going to a catholic school(it owns the public one in our area) so basically I have to take free time for homeworkReligion. Oh well, at least it will boost my GPA.

    the profile field says:
    Where do you live?

    not
    In which country were you born?

    so please update your profile.
    It is useful for us admins and also in tournaments if you want to be dispatched in the correct time zone group.

    Honors classes are ridiculously easy, if not the same as normal classes, so take as many as you can for a GPA boost.

    A word of advice from someone who's just finished his tour of duty (lol, doody):

    If you want to do well in High School, kiss your Internets good-bye. [​IMG]

    I'm having a really hard time believing that.

    I got straight A's in middle school and I never did my homework at home.

    Lunch/bus on the way home/in class is the best place for homework, not home.
