(CNN) — Overachievers, it’s that time of year.
The College Board is releasing Advanced Placement scores starting Friday through next Tuesday. The exam scores are intended to measure how high school students performed in AP courses. A high score can earn college credit for students or help them skip introductory college courses.

If you just can’t wait any longer …
If you absolutely must know how you did, you can try hacking the system by using the website Earlyscores.com. The site says it allows students to view scores early by logging into the College Board website using a server in a state where scores have already been released.
