    @LazyRay I got a 5!! I'm so suprized and thankful that I wasn't penalized for writing about our current government on the last essay. If you're anxious about scores you can use "early scores". I'm from California and vacationing out of country right now; worked for me!

    I used the early score access too... I was kind of surprised I got a 3 because I ended the AP lang class with an solid A and got a high 4 on my final in a pretty competitive school. Maybe it is because I wrote about Trump, maybe it's not but I am pretty devastated.

    I got a 5 and used one of the early vpm websites... I have a question though- does college board release info about your mc and essay scores or just the main 1-5 score?
  • sewin2musicsewin2music Registered User Posts: 377 Member
    @ughfuture28 They only display the 1-5 score. I find that EXTREMELY annoying especially since we pay around $100 per exam and wait 2 months for results, but such is life!

    @sewin2music that's so annoying!! Hopefully one of my essays will be a sample so I can know my score

    @macktheknife I feel the same way! I believe one of the essays is a poetry analysis. RIP

    I got a big fat 3. I thought that I did better with a 4. Maybe it was a high 3? It doesn't matter, a 3's a 3. Collegeboard should really change it so that we can see the range we were in rather than just a number- for example, maybe telling us if we got a high or low on that number? Maybe it's too much to ask but we did pay $90 for one exam. Anyways (sorry about the rant), congratulations to everyone who got a good score!

    I got a 5! I also wrote about Trump in my 3rd Argumentative essay... and it was not in a positive light. Right after the test I felt discouraged by others who told me that such a position would place me at a disadvantage in front of the readers. However, the College Board graders view these tests in the most objective way possible--something that seems contradictory in a subject like English. Glad that I could express my true opinion without being bashed for once!
