I was just wondering . . . for the AP U.S. History and AP Biology exams, assuming your essays are solid, how many multiple choice questions do you need to be correct to get a 5? 4? Thanks for any help you can give.

A raw score of 66% and straight 9's seems a might high to me; is that correct?

So 2/3 of multiple choice right and straight 9's on essays will get a 5? How many multiple choice would I need right if say I get straight 7/8's on the essays? What do you think is needed for a 4? Thanks

uhhmmm...NOOO!!!!!....K...for the US History Exams....its more like 6/9's on essays.....62% for the MC will land you a 5. Seriously...you need about 63% of the points or higher to score a 5 on most AP exams.
