Advanced Placement (AP)/K-12


Advanced Placement (AP) is an academic program which allows students to take rigorous college-level courses while still in secondary school. Students may earn college credit and/or advanced placement into upper-level college courses. Each AP course prepares students for an AP Exam. The score demonstrates their university-level knowledge, skills and abilities learned during the AP course. The AP functions like a global academic passport which ensures admission to undergraduate studies in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, Germany or another country. Top colleges and universities in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada accept qualifying AP Exam scores for college credit and advanced placement. It makes possible a considerable saving of money.

AP Courses

There are more than 35 different AP courses in 22 subject areas - everything from chemistry and calculus, to Japanese language and culture. Students can do two or more courses, on the basis of the college major they want to pursue, personal area of interest, strengths and preparedness, and the time they can manage. After completing an AP class, for which school credit can be earned, the AP exam can be taken every year in May.

AP scores

Student exams receive a score ranging from 5 to 1, (5: Extremely Well Qualified, 4: Well Qualified, 3: Qualified, 2: Possibly Qualified, and 1: No recommendation), with 5 being the equivalent of A-level college work. Many colleges accept scores from 3 and up, while more selective schools only consider 4s and 5s as worthy of credit or placement. The majority of AP exams consist of two sections: multiple choice and free response.
