Rodarius Adams scored a rating of “5” on this year’s AP U.S. Government & Politics Exam. AP exams are scored based on a rating of 1-5 with “1” designating “No Recommendation” for college credit and “5” designating “Extremely Well Qualified” for college credit at participating colleges and universities. Students faced difficult circumstances during this year’s AP exams as the exams were modified to be taken online at home and relied on a student’s ability to respond to one or two free-response questions instead of the normal multi-section exam. We are so proud of Rodarius!
