well, part of it anyways. I heard it was similar to the AP exam. I think it was APguy or Incognito that said it somewhere. Anyways I only did 23 questions and I missed 2. That's pretty inaccurate because if it was the real test, I would miss 14 or so.

Yeah, incognito was making a point that the format of the Regents seem to be closer to the AP than the REA practice exams.

The regents is indeed a joke in terms of difficulty. It is basically a test NY state requires to see whether or not you are competent enough to pass on to the next subject level or if you have to stay back and redo the course because you have little knowledge on it.

what about last years physics regents?

By Apguy (Apguy) on Monday, May 05, 2003 - 05:19 pm: Edit

Physics+Chemistry appear to be an exception. Many people do poorly on the Chemistry regents and lots of kids failed the physics regents because that test was supposed to be unusually hard. Many teachers across NY argued that the test's difficulty was WAY TOO HARD, but the NYS Board of Ed. did nothing. I know at my school and many others the regents score was not calculated in your final grade for that subject.
