- Each AP course concludes with an AP Exam. These assessments are designed by the same expert committee that designed the course.
- The exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5 by college and university professors and experienced AP teachers. Many U.S. colleges offer credit for AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.
AP Exams are administered at authorized schools and test centers.
