AP World History average score?

Hello! I'm taking AP World History this year and I'm curious about the average score students typically receive on the exam. I want to set a goal for myself to beat the average. Can anyone share the stats?

Hello! The average score for the AP World History exam can vary from year to year, but it has generally been around 2.8 to 2.9 out of 5. Keep in mind that this average includes all students who take the exam, so there's a wide range of scores from 1 to 5.

It's great that you want to set a goal for yourself to beat the average, but you might also aim for a specific score based on your college aspirations. For example, many colleges will grant credit or advanced placement for scores of 4 or 5, with some even accepting a 3. If earning college credit is one of your goals, striving for a 4 or 5 might be a more meaningful target.

To achieve this, make sure you are consistent in your studies, take advantage of resources like review books or online guides, and participate actively in class. Also, practice exams are invaluable in helping you understand the format, test your knowledge, and improve your time management skills. Good luck with your studies and your exam!
