# AP Physics 2 Score Calculator

- Last Updated:

It’s important for those gearing up for AP exam testing to determine their level of readiness by working through past AP Physics 2 exams released by the College Board.

To figure out where your future scores may shake out come test time, our team has put together an interactive **AP Physics 2 Score Calculator **to show what AP® score you’d likely receive based on the previous year’s exam.

## AP Physics 2 Score Calculator

To calculate your likely AP Physics 2 score, use the sliders below to adjust the 1 multiple-choice section and 4 free response questions. The curve for this score calculator is based on the most recently available scoring guidelines.

You should note that the scores determined by our AP Score Calculators should only be used as approximations, and future AP Physics 2 exams may differ from previously used AP Physics 2 exams. The calculator will give you an idea whether you’re close to a potential score cutoff or within your ideal (or less than ideal) target score range.

### Why Use Exam Strategist’s AP Physics 2 Score Calculator?

Exam Strategist uses only the most recent past exams and official scoring worksheets released by the College Board to give you the best estimate of your current AP Physics 2 competency level. The score calculator was designed to help students minimize their concerns regarding future scores by better understanding how raw scores on the AP Physics 2 exam are converted to the scaled 1-5 AP® scores.
