Step to access AP scores
1) Sign up for a College Board account at apscore.org. It's best to provide the same information on the College Board account that you supplied on your AP answer sheet(s). Your name, date of birth, gender, mailing address and email address are especially important.

2) You may already have an account if you have taken College Board exams in the past (AP/PSAT/SAT). Try signing in to confirm.

3) Remember the following information to access your scores: a) Your College Board account username and password; b) Your AP number (or student ID number if you provided it on your AP answer sheet).

College Board used to mail individual score sheets out to students, but do not any longer.
