AP Lang general score info is out

Hello, all!

For my AP folks, they’ve just released general information about the exam. Your actual scores will be released in early July.

For now, though, here’s what we have. 588,598 students took the AP English Language and Composition exam this year. (It is the biggest exam of all AP exams.) Of those 588,598 students, 9.1% earned a 5, 18.4% earned a 4, 27.8% earned a 3, 30.7% earned a 2, and 14% earned a 1.

Since 2013, there have been 100,00+ more students each year who take this exam, and the percentage who earn a 3 or greater is higher this year as well.

AP English Language multiple-choice: Students scored highest on 20th century prose texts, then pre-20th, then lowest on 21st century prose.

The most challenging essay for AP Lang students this year was Q2, the rhetorical analysis on Claire Booth Luce’s speech. Students generally performed best on the synthesis question about the future of public libraries.

So that’s the score info that we have now. I’m proud of how hard you all worked this year. Thanks for being my first group of AP Lang kiddos!
