What % is needed to earn a 5?

Hi! The heading of the topic is my question exactly… I want to know if it would be easier to earn a 5 on this exam, or how many questions can be missed to earn a 5!


I replied to a similar question earlier, so I’ll put the same response I gave to the other person.
College Board hasn’t released the scoring guidelines for this years exam, so no one knows right now. CB said that Question 2 is 6 points in the 2020 Sample Questions. I would focus on reviewing the information, and remember that you’ve been prepping for this exam since the start of the school year.

I’m going to go ahead and second this. Traditionally, it ranges from a 75-80 percent for a 5, but nobody knows what is going on this year.

Thanks for your input! I’m hoping that Fiveable will have a better idea of the percent needed to get a 5 after having some student-based insight from the previous exams, so I still hope that they answer this question in the cram session. However, your feedback was very helpful! Thanks!
