16 Memes You’ll Only Understand If You’ve Taken An AP Exam

Not to be all, like, “How do you do, fellow kids?” right now, but my sources are telling me that the AP Lit exam was yesterday. If you have ever taken AP Lit–“lit” as in “literature,” by the way, not “turned up or popping,” as Urban Dictionary describes it–you will know that it’s tough. You have to spend a whole year learning weird literary terms (“Bildungsroman?” “Iambic octameter???”and methods for writing very specific types of essays (analysis of prose, poetry, and a “specific concept???”) for an arbitrary-seeming score that, potentially, will give you some college credit. Basically? It’s a scam. The College Board is a scam. But you didn’t hear that from me!

It is comforting to know, I suppose, that a shared traumatic experience will always be the best way to bond with other people, and, as a result, AP exams and other standardized tests will always result in some killer memes that reflect this shared trauma. Right? So, check out these memes you’ll only understand if you’ve taken an AP exam:
