Advanced Placement (AP)

Advanced Placement  (AP)

The Advanced Placement (AP) program through College Board is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools, colleges and universities. It provides students with the exposure to college-level work during high school. It also provides them with the ability to achieve advanced placement, advanced standing, and college credit for courses taken during high school. This latter goal can be achieved by taking the optional AP Exam for a given subject in early May of each academic year, and is based on the score that is earned by a student on that exam. Each AP Exam a student chooses to take is given at a cost per exam by College Board. Students taking AP tests are responsible for covering the cost associated with each exam taken.

AP Exams are graded on a 5-point scale as shown below. Each college then sets its individual standards for evaluating the scores for college credit or placement

5 = extremely well qualified

4 = well qualified

3 = qualified

2 = possibly qualified

1 = no recommendation
