AP Exam Test Preparation
Part of a rigorous high school schedule, AP courses offer students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of content and college readiness. With over thirty AP courses offered by the College Board, students have plenty of opportunities to shine. Based on student performance, many colleges offer course credit or advancement.
The AP Exam: Test Overview
- There are over 30 AP courses offered by the College Board.
- Students take AP exams in May and receive their scores in July.
- Although a student does not need to be enrolled in an AP class to take the exam, research by The College Board shows that students who take the courses do better on the exams and are therefore more likely to earn AP credits.
- AP exams are not directly related to college admissions. Advanced placement courses and high AP scores will look good on an application, but their purpose is to determine college credit or course placement.
