How and When to Access Your 2017 AP Test Scores

Students will receive access to AP scores based on their location starting on Wednesday, July 5.  Students can be prepared, particularly those who have never taken an AP Exam before, by taking the steps below: Sign up now for a College Board account on the student AP scores website. It’s required to get scores. Some students may already have an account, so have them confirm this by signing in. Remember account username and password, and 2017 AP number (or student ID number if they provided it on their AP answer sheet). Students will also receive an email in early July reminding them how and when to access their scores.

The ACT measures achievement related to high school curricula, while the SAT measures general verbal and quantitative reasoning.

These concordance tables do not equate scores, but rather provide a tool for finding comparable scores.  Click here for ACT/SAT Concordance Table
