I did a search for this in the archives but couldn't find a conclusive answer; what exactly do you need to get for a 5 on the AP US History test? I know how all the scoring works, so I just want a percentage, preferably the highest it has ever been, because I like to plan for the worst. I've heard about 60% but haven't heard anything conclusive.

you need a 63.333% for a 5, 50.555% for a 4, and 41.111% for a 3.

Wow. I didn't know curves were that big. Are all AP test curves that big? (63.3333%?)

Hm.. What about AP Eng. Lang? I've been looking for that one.

By Feuler (Feuler) on Monday, April 05, 2004 - 12:55 am: Edit

According to a scoring sheet our teacher showed us, 72% was a 5 in English Lang in 2001. I imagine it's reasonably consistent.
