I took three regents this year, ((Well four if you include Math from January)) but I took Global, Spanish ((Skipped ahead a year)) and Earth Science...anyone who lives in New Yrk or California has to take thes and my Earth Science teacher this year was horrible...my old next door neighbor is also an earth science teacher in our school and she tutored me and helped me alot. So after the Earth Science test I came out in tears because I thought it was really hard but the other teacher who was helping me just called me and told me I passed! I just thought Id share lol

Congrats on passing Alex! :)

I don't have to take regents but we do have tests in Texas...they used to be called TAAS and we were the last graduating class to take them...so we did and we all passed with flying colors b/c it was soo basic. They just changed the test this year to TAKS and it's HARD! lol luckily I don't have to take it to graduate but we got our scores and I did ok, but considering I'm an Honors kid and I did ok...who knows how the academic kids did! The science one was hard...it tested chemistry, bio and physics...I didn't remember like any of it! lol

they are tests that NY state requires you to take to go on to the next grade level in science, english, history, math etc. If you do not pass the first time you have to take them over and over again and some of them are hard!

Thanks guys lol...so Jules, I guess every state has some sort of testing process which is really just idiotic I think. Base the whole year on one test is a big mistake. I say if you pass the class you obviously know the material...we take Math B next year which they just changed from sequential 3 and its supposed to be near impossible :O...Im dead!
