Note that the scores determined by our AP Score Calculators should only be used as an approximation, and future AP Microeconomics exams may differ from previously administered AP Micro exams. The calculator will give you an idea whether you’re close to a potential score cutoff or within your ideal (or nonideal) target score range.
