    How can I score a 5 on the AP English Language exam?

    Posted on 30 April 2014 by Barbara Swovelin

    Let’s first look at the more elemental question, namely, “What does it take for anyone to get a 5 on the exam?” After that, we can talk about what it is that you need to do.

    Here’s a very rough estimate of what it takes to score a 5 on the overall exam: Multiple-Choice scores of at least 83% (or higher), plus essay scores in the 8-9 range, although if one of your three essays gets a score of 7, it’s likely that you’ll still be OK . These percentages are just ball-park estimates, and the actual numbers vary from year-to-year, but this info gives you a feel for what it takes.
