Introduction: The AP Grade Calculator is a helpful tool for students enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) courses. It allows students to convert their raw scores into corresponding AP grades, providing a quick and accurate assessment of their performance.

Formula: The calculator determines the AP grade based on the percentage of the raw score in relation to the total points. The grading scale is standard, with percentages corresponding to AP grades of 1 to 5.

How to Use:

2. Enter the total points in the “Enter Total Points” field.
3. Click the “Calculate” button to get the corresponding AP grade.

Example: Suppose you scored 45 out of 50 on an AP exam. Enter “45” in the raw score field and “50” in the total points field. Click “Calculate” to get the corresponding AP grade.
