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.
