Testing

Why do AP students have only one test per subject and IB students have multiple tests?

Personally, I think that AP doesn't like students, since the students have only one chance to pass or fail their exams, whereas IB wants students to pass--as evidenced by the multiple tests that students are able to take, and the students ability to talk with classmates after the test about what they did not know.

On the other hand, the AP get through the suffering faster, while the IB students have to suffer through at least two tests per course (with a few exceptions).
