Teens used their AP English exams to completely roast Trump
On Wednesday, high school students across the country channelled weeks of cramming to complete the AP English Exam, a standardized test featuring multiple choice and essay questions. If their scores are high enough, the students earn college credit.
According to BuzzFeed, the final essay question of the exam, which was based on “America the Illiterate,” a column by progressive writer Chris Hedges, asked how much of a role “artifice” plays in politics. For those of you whose high school vocabulary skills have since left your brain and leaked out your ear, “artifice” means cunning or deceit.
Well, because teens seem to act as one, powerful entity, a specific thing came to mind while answering this question.
They sharpened their pencils, cracked their fingers, and sat down ready to roast the hell out of Donald Trump.
Although lots of teens leaned towards writing about the president, some had another idea in mind.
Some just had no clue was “artifice” meant.
Students used #APLang to voice their opinions about the question on Twitter, and a lot of them wondered what would happen if their college board found out.
Or worse, what if they were Trump supporters?
Maybe these teens are on to something…
Good luck students! Hope your scores don’t get erased!
