About AP Scholar Awards (from www.collegeboard.org)
There are two steps to calculating the awards:
The student’s average AP score is determined based on all exams taken this year and in previous years.
The student’s exam scores are checked to see which ones count toward the various AP Scholar Awards.
A student must meet all criteria to be eligible. For example, a student who has a 3.25 AP score average but only received a 3 or higher on three exams will not receive the AP Scholar with Honor Award because the minimum requirement is a score of 3 or higher on four or more exams.
Exams taken multiple times only count once; the highest score will be used for the award calculation.
The Calculus AB subscore, Music Theory aural subscore and Music Theory nonaural subscore are not used in the AP Scholar Award calculations.
The AP Scholar Awards are academic distinctions that students may cite among their credentials on applications, resumes and so on. Students do not receive any monetary award from the College Board.
