The What, When and Why of AP Courses, AP Exams, and AP Test Prep
Most colleges grant incoming students credit or placement on the basis of their AP exam grades. AP exams, each including a multiple-choice and free-response section, are administered in May; they test students’ retention of material learned throughout the year. There are thirty AP exams to choose from, ranging from Music Theory to BC Calculus.
Scoring and Scoring Strategy
All AP Exam scores range from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest possible score.
|AP Grade||Qualification||Corresponding College Grades|
||Extremely well qualified
||A-, B+, B
||B-, C+, C
Unlike on the SAT I, incorrect answers on an AP exam will not hurt your score. You will not lose points for leaving a question blank nor for answering incorrectly.
