AP assessments allow students to get a feel for the rigors of college level studies while in High School. Students demonstrate to college admission officers that they have sought out an educational experience which prepares them for success in college and beyond.
This exam is offered in May. The schedule is created by the College Board.
High School students register for the assessments at their local High School
AP exams are a weighted combination of the student's scores in a multiple choice and a free response section. Scores are reported on a 5-point scale and show mastery in the course.
5 - extremely well qualified
4 - well qualified
3 - qualified
2 - possibly qualified
1 - no recommendation
Pass for Promotion?
NO, however scores of 3, 4, or 5 can afford students credit for a college course or enable them to skip the college course (policies vary by college).
