The US History Bee is pleased to announce that through the end of January 2018, 35 Varsity and 51 JV students have taken the B Set National Qualifying Exam. As this year, we are calculating the National Median Scores earlier to give everyone more lead time to prepare to attend the National Championships, we can now announce that the official B Set National Median Scores are 74 for Varsity and 48 for Junior Varsity. Anyone who has scored or who scores higher than these scores on the Exam qualifies for the 2018 US History Bee National Championships in their age division. Students whose scores were in the top 50% of scores at their Exam site still qualify too, even if they scored less than the National Median Scores. We have also added access to spreadsheets showing all scores by Set (click on the tabs at the bottom of the page for the other age division) on the Results page here.
The A Set National Median Scores will be announced the first week of March. Best of luck in qualifying for and preparing for the 2018 US History Bee National Championships!
