Exam Scores

The multiple choice section is machine scored.

The essays are scored in early June by high school AP Human Geography teachers and college professors of Human Geography.

They assemble for approximately one week in Cincinnati, Ohio to read and score the FRQ's (Free Response Questions).

The final exam scores are posted online in early July.

if a score is lower than a 3
If a Score Is Lower Than a 3.....

While we try our best to assure that every student earns a 3 or higher, not every student does.

Remember that you have still gained some valuable skills and experience that will help you throughout high school.

Many students go on to take other AP courses, earn the weighted points and often go on to pass future exams.
