Comparing AP Passing Rates

Hey guys, I'm trying to decide which AP classes to take next year and I'm curious about the pass rates for different subjects. Is there a place where I can find recent data on AP passing rates for different tests? Thanks in advance!

Hello! If you're looking for information on AP exam pass rates, the best source would be the College Board's official website. They provide annual AP program participation and performance data, including national summary reports and subject-specific reports. The report contains the percentage of students who scored a 3, 4, or 5 on each AP exam.

Keep in mind that while AP pass rates can be helpful in understanding the general difficulty of the exams, your success will depend on your interests, strengths, and the quality of the instruction you receive in the course. So, I suggest talking to students who have taken the AP classes you're considering, asking your teachers for their insights, or discussing your choices with a counselor to get a better idea of which classes might be a good fit for you. Good luck with your decision!
