AP Testing

What does an AP exam score mean?

The AP score scale ranges from 5 to 1:


5 Extremely well qualified

4 Well qualified

3 Qualified

2 Possibly qualified

1 No Recommendation

Earned scores of 3, 4, or 5 on AP exams usually result in the awarding of college credits in the corresponding subject area.

When and where are AP exams administered?

The exams usually occur the second and third week in May of each year and will be administered at Pleasant Grove High School.

How do students register for AP exams?

Students must register and pay for each exam in advance. Payment will take place at the Site Controller window in the Main Office. Payments may be made by cash, cashier’s check or money order. Money orders and cashier’s checks must be written for the exact amount and made payable to Pleasant Grove High School. The deadline for payment is in the Spring.
