Request Rescoring of Your Multiple-Choice Answer Sheet

If you’re concerned that your score is not accurate because of a scanning or processing error, you can request that the AP Program rescore your multiple-choice answer sheet by hand. (We don’t rescore the free-response section.) After we rescore, we combine the resulting multiple-choice score with your free-response score.

  • If this new score is different from the original score, the new score—whether it’s higher or lower than the original score—will automatically be sent to all your score recipients.
  • AP Services must receive your rescore request by October 31 of the year you took the AP Exam.
  • You will receive a letter confirming the results of the rescore 6–8 weeks after your request is received.
