AP Grading:

Each year the College Board release sample exams that detail what percentage score is equivalent to a 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Using these sample exams as a reference AP teachers will be able to set their own AP Grading guidelines that will be published in the course syllabus at the beginning of the year.

At BBS, AP teachers will use the AP Grading Scale for Semester Exams and Mock AP Exams, but not during semester tests.

AP Scores are graded by the College Board using the below scale:

AP Exam Score Recommendation College Course Grade Equivalent
5 Extremely well qualified A+ or A
4 Very well qualified A-, B+, or B
3 Qualified B-, C+, or C
2 Possibly qualified
1 No recommendation
