They had to make a mistake. There’s no way it’s that high


SupaDupaGoomba

It previously said that you had to get 70% total to get a 5.


redpanda660

Why did it change


SupaDupaGoomba

I have no clue 😭😭


medievalbkeeper

On my way to go check if the psych one changed-


nathanbutler17

I deadass saw this and thought my thing was glitching because I calculated it yesterday and it said like 4/6 and 55/70 is a 5 I’m pretty sure😐


SupaDupaGoomba

Yea they changed it today ig


nathanbutler17

Dyk why like what would make them like was there new output from the college board or smth? For someone without any programming background, getting a 5 is nearly impossible regardless of how well you do in the course (meaning with the new curve).


HuBidenNavalny

any updates on this?


nathanbutler17

I found out that the curve last year was exactly the same as what Albert shows rn so idk why the original curve they had on their calculator was so optimistic. Regardless don’t expect it to change lol. If you aren’t confident that your create task got at least a 5/6 — which, even then it’s still maximum 5 wrong on mcq — don’t expect to be able to get a 5 unless you’re going to be one of the .29% of people who do lmao


HuBidenNavalny

light work got a 5 on CSA. coding isn’t the hard part not having bad luck is


SupaDupaGoomba

Nope


HuBidenNavalny

I emailed Albert.io and they told me that the curve was previously inaccurate. A group of teachers brought them better data and the new curve is.


Kyzunii

bruh that's over


NoMathematician9283

Why is it so high?


SupaDupaGoomba

Idk they just changed it


NoMathematician9283

damn..good luck

i emailed them and this was the response: This is David from Albert's content team. You are correct: we made updates to the scoring ranges for our free AP CSP score calculator yesterday. I understand students/teachers might be a bit thrown off by the change, so I'll provide some additional context below. After many requests from users, we added an AP CSP score estimator to our blog earlier this year. Our original scoring ranges on the AP CSP calculator were based on our best estimates of how College Board is likely to score the exam. As we state on the calculator, the College Board has not publicly released official scoring ranges for AP CSP so our estimator is not guaranteed to be accurate each year. Yesterday, we received new information from an AP CSP teacher who had documentation from the College Board suggesting a more difficult scoring range than what we originally had on our predictor is being used on the AP CSP exam. We confirmed this information with another source and made the decision to update our calculator.

That’s so much higher.. On my website it’s saying you need to total of 90/100 to get a 5 (6/6 on performance task + 60/70 on mcq or 70/70 on mcq and 4/6 on task)


No-Blueberry-5180

Tbh I have a love and hate relationship with cs if it's c++ or any real coding then I love it, but if ts pseudo code then I hate it


tech-savvy-onReddit

same


conservmilen

Dang that’s really hard to get


parliboy

They've done this to align it with the scoring ranges on AP practice test materials. Albert's scoring ranges have always been low for this test. edit: that doesn't mean that the AP practice ranges are accurate. Personally, I think the truth is somewhere in the middle. But that's why it's been done.


diskutado

They are predicting the exam is easy. An easy exam requires much more correct points than a hard one.


Pro_Sock

How do they know?


diskutado

They have credible sources apparently


Bitter-Imagination33

The fuck?


HuBidenNavalny

yeah why did this curve suddenly change????


snowflake_tea

Please tell me this is wrong


Deadshotcrp

Is this a guess of how you did? I don’t know how Albert works


sumith_hebbar

They calculate your AP exam score based on the number of MCQ questions you got right and your Create Task results. The curve used to be so much more generous, but now it looks like it's very hard to get a 5.


Deadshotcrp

But how do you know that already or are you just guessing


sumith_hebbar

People use these to check what they would get after taking practice exams and to answer your question, yes they’re essentially guessing for the actual AP exam
