AP exams are college level exams, which are designed to test the academic rigour a student has gone through. AP exams earn you credits that you would have ideally earned after completing a course at College. APs act as a great differentiator during College Admissions. There are a total of 39 APs and these are held only once a year in May.

Why should we write the AP Tests?
Taking AP Tests offers several compelling advantages:
  • College Credit: Many colleges and universities offer course credit to students who earn high scores on AP Tests. This can save both time and money by allowing students to skip introductory-level courses.
  • Advanced Placement: Successful performance on AP Tests can lead to advanced placement in college courses. This means students can begin their college journey with more challenging and specialized classes.
  • Skill Development: AP courses and tests are designed to be academically rigorous, fostering critical thinking, research, and writing skills that are valuable in college and beyond.
College Applications: High AP scores can enhance college applications, demonstrating a student’s commitment to academic excellence and readiness for higher education.

Registering for AP Tests involves some key steps:

  • Select Your AP Courses: First, you must select your desired college major and based on your subjects and curriculum at school decide your APs. 
  • Register on College Board: To initiate the registration process, students need to create a College Board account. This account will be the central hub for all AP-related activities.

Pay Exam Fees: Contact your AP Exam Centre and pay the fees.

AP Tests are generally administered during the first two weeks of May each year. However, it’s essential to be aware of specific test dates, as some subjects may have alternate or late testing options. It’s crucial to plan accordingly and ensure you’re prepared for your chosen test date.

AP Tests are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest score. Each exam consists of a combination of multiple-choice questions and free-response questions. Highly qualified AP examiners evaluate the free-response sections, and the scores are reported in July. Colleges and universities have their policies regarding how they grant credit and placement based on AP scores, but generally, higher scores are more likely to earn credit or advanced placement.
