Getting your AP Results:
  • The College Board is going online with AP Results this year. You are required to set up an account with them to get results. Remember, if required to give an email address, it's a good idea to have a dummy account or "junk" account set up. This will keep your real inbox from getting cluttered with solicitations that you don't want.
  • Go to the College Board's Student Registration webpage to set up your account.
  • These should be available around the end of June - beginning of July.
  • I'd say "Good luck", but we all know it's not about luck.
