College Board allows more potential five’s after national wide Kahoot

With just four more weeks until AP testing, AP classes start preparing for the AP tests run by College Board the first two weeks of May. Student’s typically strive to receive a five, four or three to potentially receive college credit in the future. Recently, College Board has announced a new challege for students determined to earn a five on their test. Starting the 2019-2020 school year, they will be lauching a nation-wide Kahoot and the top 25 winners will receive an automatic five on the test of their choice.

“It seems like such an oddly specific thing to come up with and then offer to students, but if it helps me reach a five on my AP Bio exam, then of course I’m going to try it,” senior Gib Me-an-a said.

The Kahoot will present 100 questions regarding the history of the non-profit organization, College Board. Although no set information is confirmed to be on the Kahoot, students up for the challenge can expect to know the CEO’s hometown, the location of its current headquarters and the exact date it was founded.

“I wish they could give us more information on what to study,”junior Amm Dawn said. “Since they only listed three potential questions, they basically gave us nothing to work with.”

Although College Board refuses to give more information on the nation-wide Kahoot, there has already been much talk surrounding the test. Why is College Board suddenly coming up with this unique idea?

“I think that students have always had an automatic resentment against College Board, so maybe they’re trying to rebrand themselves to students,” an anonymous counselor said.

Students naturally have a stressful time the weeks leading up to AP testing. They have to make sure they completely comprehend all topics within the subject in order to score high on the test. This additional challenge can potentially motivate students to study for their exams.

“It’s exciting knowing this opportunity can help me reach a five in my harder classes, it’s made me more optimistic when it comes to studying because I might actually have a shot,” Me-an-a said.
