Exam Scoring & Granting of College Credit or Advanced Program Placement

Each May, students take an AP Course Exam which will determine what (if any) college credits or advanced program placement they will receive.

The AP exam score is a weighted combination of the student’s scores on the multiple-choice section and the free-response sections. The final score is reported on a 5-point scale:*

                5(pass) = Extremely well qualified

                4(pass) = Well qualified

                3(pass) = Qualified

                2(not pass) = Possibly qualified

                1(not pass) = No recommendation

*Colleges and universities are responsible for setting their own credit and placement policies

For most students, results indicate:

 AP Exam Score                  Grade equivalent in corresponding college courses

                5                                          A+ and A

                4                                          A-, B+ and B
