What's considered a good percentage for a 4 on the AP Psych Exam?

Just wondering, for anyone who's done really well on the AP Psych exam, what kind of percentage are we looking at for a score of 4? Any study tips for reaching that would be very much appreciated!

Hi there! Understanding the scoring for AP exams can be a bit tricky since it's not just about the percentage correct but also about how the scores are scaled each year. However, a rough estimate for a 4 on the AP Psych exam is typically around 65-75% of the total possible points. Remember, they grade on a curve!

In regards to study tips:

1. Make sure you're familiar with all the major concepts and studies that are typically covered in your course syllabus

2. Creating flashcards for key terms and theorists can be super helpful

3. Practice with past exam questions, take timed practice tests, and review the scoring guidelines for free-response questions so you understand what graders are looking for. The College Board website is a fantastic resource for this, as is attending any review sessions your school might offer.

Just keep at it, and best of luck!
