Many students apply to colleges in the autumn of their senior year, many months before their spring AP Exams. As a result, most institutions and applications include a self-record function for AP examinations previously completed. In addition, almost all institutions will not demand official test scores until you have been admitted and committed to attending.
Self-recording your results are normally optional, but if you did well on AP exams, it’s a terrific opportunity to stand out to any institutions you’re applying to!

Take care! This is not to be confused with ACT and SAT score records. You must include such documents directly from the testing companies in your applications to institutions. Similarly, you may be required to submit official high school transcripts when you apply. Therefore, it’s usually a good idea to double-check the prerequisites of each institution. Even while most people will not want an official score record, some search online!
