AP Not Going Well

Recommended Posts

Are the 9's on his essays from an online teacher or have you graded real essays based on the scoring guidelines at AP Central?  Some teachers score kids much higher on essays than they would score on the exam.  I would have him do a real released exam if you have one and score the essays using the scoring guidelines.  If he is really getting 9's on the essays, he should be fine.


As you can see from the scoring calculator linked above, you don't need to get nearly all of the multiple choice questions right to get a 5.  My dd has been pretty consistently scoring about 75 % on the MCQ.  With that score, she just needs 6's on the essays to get a 5.
