AP Exams are administered each May. Each exam contains both multiple-choice and free response questions that require essay writing, problem solving, and other skills. Every examination receives an overall grade on a five-point scale.
5 - extremely well qualified
4 - well qualified
3 - qualified
2 - possibly qualified
1 - no recommendation
AP Grade reports are available electronically through the student's College Board account in early July, and if the student has requested it, to the designated colleges.
Each college decides how much credit to award for AP scores. You can find information for the college(s) you are interested in by using the AP Credit Policy search at https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/creditandplacement/credit-policy-detail
