What is a good AP English Language score?
Scoring a 3, 4, or 5 on any AP exam is generally considered good. Typically, a 3 is defined as ‘qualified,’ 4 as ‘well qualified,’ and a 5 as ‘extremely well qualified.’ Most colleges and universities have well-established AP Credit Policies for students that score in these ranges.

What is the average AP English Language score?
Since there is a new group of test takers every year, the average AP English Language score changes. However, generally speaking the College Board strives to keep a relatively consistent distribution for each subject. We recommend you think about the average AP English Language score by considering a multi-year trend. For example, if you reference the AP Student Score Distributions released by the College Board, the mean AP English Language score was 2.79 in 2014, 2.79 in 2015, 2.82 in 2016 and 2.77 in 2017. Thus, if you took the raw average of these four years, the average AP English Language score is 2.79.
Why are AP English Language scores curved?
The College Board curves AP exams so that a consistent standard can be achieved every year, despite the different sample of test takers. AP courses are college-level classes, so the way the exams are scored are reflected to account for the difficulty of these courses.
