The US History Bee is pleased to announce that through the end of December 2018, 99 Varsity and 200 JV students (compared with 96 Varsity and 124 students in the fall of 2017!) have taken the C Set National Qualifying Exam. As we now calculate the National Median Scores earlier in the academic year to give everyone more lead time to prepare to attend the National Championships, we can now announce that the official C Set National Median Scores are 73 for Varsity and 34 for Junior Varsity. Anyone who has scored or who scores higher than these scores on the Exam qualifies for the 2019 US History Bee National Championships in their age division. The National Median Scores for C Set will not change further based on students who take this version of the USHB National Qualifying Exam in 2019. 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 B Set National Median Scores will be announced in early February, and the A Set National Median Scores will be announced in early March. Best of luck in qualifying for and preparing for the 2019 US History Bee National Championships!
