Ordering Exams

You’ll order the AP Music Theory Exam through AP Registration and Ordering. For more information about ordering AP Exams, go to Ordering Exam Materials.

Ordering Master CDs

Each AP Music Theory Exam order includes one set of master CDs (one master listening CD and one master sight singing CD), regardless of the number of exams ordered. If there will be multiple testing rooms for the AP Music Theory Exam, you’ll need to order a set of master CDs for each testing room. Review the “Ordering Additional Master CDs” section in the AP Coordinator’s Manual, Part 1.

When you submit your exam order, you may request:

  • 1 additional master sight singing CD for every 4 exams ordered
  • 1 additional master listening CD for every 10 exams ordered

You may add additional master CDs to your exam order until March 15, 2022, 11:59 p.m. ET.

Administering the Exams

Student responses for AP Music Theory are recorded using digital recording equipment and must be submitted through the Digital Audio Submission (DAS) portal to be scored. Visit Submitting Audio for more information about the DAS portal.

See the “AP Music Theory Exam” section in AP Coordinator’s Manual, Part 2 for details about setting up for and administering these exams.
