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)

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.
