AP Test Results Available Online Starting Today

By Caralee J. Adams — July 08, 2013 1 min read

For high school students who took Advanced Placement exams in the spring, the wait for results is over.

But they shouldn’t look for scores in their mailbox. Instead, the College Board has, for the first time, made results available online.

As of today at 5 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, students could access their scores by visiting apscore.org.

Students must use their College Board account and AP number or student ID number to find out their results. For those with questions about viewing or sending their scores, a Help page has been set up with answers to FAQs.

Score reports will be sent to the college or university that students designated on their answer sheet. When students view their scores online, they will have the option of requesting they be sent to other schools for a fee of $15 per report.

Depending on how well students do on the exam, some institutions may grant college credit or allow students to skip the equivalent course once they get to campus.

The final exam score ranges from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest possible. The latest AP Report on the Class of 2012 released in February showed that 19.5 percent of all graduates scored a 3 or higher, which is considered a passing grade. That is up from 18.1 percent who passed in 2011 and 11.6 percent in the class of 2002.

The College Board announced earlier this spring that it was moving from a paper-only score report to an online system in an effort to be more efficient and for environmental reasons.
