OVERVIEW OF AP EXAM SCORES
Each AP Exam score is a weighted combination of the student’s scores on the multiple-choice section and the free-response section. The final score I s reported on a 5-point scale. Although universities are responsible for setting their own credit and placement policies, AP scores offer a recommendation on how qualified students are to receive University credit of placement.
5 = extremely well qualified
4 = well qualified
3 = qualified
2 = possibly qualified
1 = no recommendation

AP Exam scores of 5 are equivalent to grades of A+ and A in the corresponding University course.
AP Exam scores of 4 are equivalent to grades pf A-, B+ and B in University.
AP Exam scores of 3 are equivalent to grades of B- C+ and C in University.
