tentative - subject to change  pre-2009

In lieu of the spring Final exam, there will be a number of AP Chemistry practice exams to prepare you for the upcoming AP chemistry exam:  3 MC & 3 FR.  The highest MC score and highest FR score will each count as a single exam score (i.e. will count as "2 exams"), unless there is a drop in your score by 2 or more levels, in which case, your scores will be averaged; thus do not get "lazy" if you do well on a practice test.

The below charts show how your raw score will be translated to your exam points; notice the progressively increasing number of exam points available, which corresponds to a progressive increase in the required raw score - should reflect your increasing knowledge of chemistry as a function of time, i.e. as you study, your score should be improving.
