Preparing for College

Receiving AP Exam Scores

Question: How do I find out how I did on my AP exams? Do I have to wait until the results are mailed to me?

Results for the AP exams you took in May should be mailed to your home by about mid-July. They will also be sent to your school at the same time, as well as to any colleges you listed on your answer sheet. According to the College Board, if you want scores sooner, you can get them by phone but for an extra fee. (No surprise there, eh?) See below:

Grades By Phone

Starting July 1, AP Grades by Phone for the current year's exams will be available for students in the United States, U.S. territories, and Canada for a fee of $8 per call. This service will be offered 24 hours a day by TouchTone phone and will remain available for about six weeks. The toll-free number is (888) 308-0013. Students outside the U.S. and Canada can call AP Services.
