Can someone clear up the National AP scholar thing for me?

<p>So it says you should have an average of 4s on your exams...does this literally mean 4 or above on each exam, or can you have one 3 and one 5 and they average out to a 4?</p>

<p>(and yes I know you have to take 8 exams for this award)</p>

<p>I think by average they mean average.</p>

<p>Otherwise, they would probably say “4 or higher”.</p>

<p>National AP Scholar
Granted to students in the United States who receive an average score of at least 4 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.</p>

<p>Yes, you have to have an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken. However, you ALSO have to have scores of 4 or higher on EIGHT or more of these exams. You need to earn at least a 4 on EIGHT or more your AP Exams.</p>


^are the 8 ap exams required to be from the same year? so if I got a least a 4 on 9 ap exams from junior and senior year, would that count?</p>

<p>It’s cumulative, so that would count</p>
