Mostly A’s: You’re AP Chemistry! You have lofty dreams and you’ll do whatever it takes to achieve them. Others might call you cutthroat, but you prefer determined, ambitious, and hardworking. You tend to be rigid in your ways, so don’t be afraid to experiment. With that attitude, you’ll definitely reach your aspirations, but remember to put down that beaker, take off those safety glasses, and have a little fun every once in awhile.
Mostly B’s: You’re Arts and Crafts! You’re creative, social, and a bit of an optimist. You try your best to not sweat the small stuff, and because of this, people are attracted to your laid-back and warm nature. People love to be around you and you love to be around people! However, this means you have tendency to be too passive, and let others boss you around. Make an effort to grab life by the brush, and Van Gogh for it! But that’s harder said than drawn…
Mostly C’s: You’re Web Design! Ingenuity is your middle name. You’re remarkably intelligent, creative, and, well, lazy. Without proper motivation, you’ll always do the bare minimum. But when you’re inspired, however, you’re capable of amazing things. Still, you tend to be quite the cynic. Just remember: Life’s a code and it’s up to you to crack it. Get TI-Nspired!
Mostly D’s: You’re World History! You’re innately curious and idealistic. You have a vision of what the world should be and you’re determined to make it a reality. You’re open-minded; you love to try new things. In fact, you welcome change. Forward is the only direction you’re willing to move. You’re fascinated by other cultures and you preach tolerance above all else, but you yourself can be intolerant at times. It’s great to be opinionated but try not to talk over others. Afterall, history does repeat itself. If you’re not careful, you might end up becoming part of the problem you’ve been crusading against.
Mostly E’s: You’re AP English Language! In your world, the person with the most compelling argument wins. You’re logical, passionate, and a bit mischievous. Sometimes, you like to start arguments for the fun of it just to see how others will respond. You’re also analytical. You excel at reading between the lines and figuring out what people are actually saying.
