My high school offered two AP classes - AP US History and AP English something-or-other. I didn't take the latter one (hence not being clear on what the name was...), but I did take the former. I only received a 3 on the exam, though, which wasn't sufficient for credit at my first college.
Out of my class, though, that 3 was the second highest. One person got a 4, and everyone else who took the exam scored 2 or below.
