    a score of 1 or 2 in the AP Physics

    Hello again!
    38:56 - 39:28 https://youtu.be/yKrp0sO3PJg?t=2336
    Almost all of his students got a score of 1 or 2 in their AP Physics.
    I thought that 1 or 2 isn't a good score for a test, is it? But concerning the context it sounds like the teacher was proud of his students. Did I misunderstood the context? I'm confused.
    Thank you a lot!

    Yes, he's saying they all got scores of 1-2. The teacher in question dismissed the results of the students from University of Arizona, thinking his Harvard students would do better, but they ended up getting the same results. The results surprised him, and he then went about changing his teaching strategy.

    AP placement scores range from 1-5 - the lower the score, the less qualified you are for that subject.

    • 5: Extremely Well Qualified
    • 4: Well Qualified
    • 3: Qualified
    • 2: Possibly Qualified
    • 1: No recommendation
