AP Exam Scoring Information


AP Exam Scoring

According to the College Board, AP exams are scored on a 5-point scale, with five indicating a student who is well-qualified and one representing someone who isn't recommended for college credit. However, it's important to know that individual colleges set their own standards for accepting AP results and are not bound by the College Board. The acceptable scores may also vary by subject.

Submitting Scores and Fees

You can submit your scores to one school at no cost. At the time of the exam, you will need to indicate this on your AP answer sheet. After this one school, additional fees will apply for other schools. The fee for standard delivery is $15 per additional score report, while rush service is $25.

If you want your scores withheld from the school you write on your answer sheet, or if you'd like a multiple choice section rescored by hand, these can be done for an additional fee. The fee for withholding is $10 per score per college. To have your exam rescored by hand, it will cost $30 per exam.
