How To Check AP Exam Scores

Checking AP Exam Scores

If you took one of the 37 AP subject exams administered in May, the only way to check your scores is online. Score reports are usually available on by July. If you provided an accurate email address on the AP exam answer sheet, you will receive notification when your scores are available to check, print and download. Once your scores are available:

1. Go to and log on to your College Board account. If you have ever registered for a College Board test, such as the SAT or SAT Subject Test, you can use the same College Board account that you already created. If you do not have one, you will need to enter your personal and academic information to generate an account.

2. Complete the prompt asking for your AP number. When you sign up to take an AP test, you'll receive a card with an AP number, which you can use to quickly access your scores. If you lose your number, click on 'I do not have my AP number' after you are logged in, and a prompt will ask you for your email address so your AP number can be sent to you.

Understanding Exam Scores

AP exams are scored on a scale of 1-5 points. Each college and university sets the minimum score required to receive college credit for an AP exam, though a score of three or higher is generally needed.
