On the actual exam, how many question right do you need on the mutiple choice and how many points to you need out of 6 on the essays to get a 5?
How generous is the curve?

    From the 2004 test:
    80 MC questions total,
    1 Required DBQ,
    choose one essay out of 3 in Part B
    choose one essay out of 3 in Part C

    Section 1: _______________(Number correct out of 80) - __________(.25xnumber wrong) x 1.1250 = Weighted Section 1 Score.

    Section 2:
    Question 1: ________(out of 9) x 4.5000 =__________(Do not round)
    Question 2: ________(out of 9) x 4.5000 =__________(Do not round)
    Question 3: ________(out of 9) x 4.5000 =__________(Do not round)

    Composite Score:_____(Weighted Section I score) + _____(Weighted section II score)=______(Composite score rounded to nearest whole number)


    Composite Score Range AP Grade
    121-180 = 5
    99-120 = 4
    67-98 = 3
    49-66 = 2
    0-48 = 1

    The formula in message #3 above will not work for the 2012 exam because there is no longer a penalty for incorrect answers. The College Board changed the scoring methodology beginning with the 2011 AP exams.

    Here is another link to an online calculator for the AP Euro exam: AP Pass - AP Euro Calculator

    Good luck with your exam.
