Hi and thanks for dropping by to learn more about writing an Advanced Placement Exam.
Writing an Advanced Placement Exam is an enrichment opportunity for ALL students. Taking an AP Exam allows high school students to learn a subject in greater depth than a high school level course. There are 36 courses to choose from in 9 subject areas. See apstudent.collegeboard.org/apcourse for course list.
Why write an AP exam? AP enables you to: - Stand out in college/university admission - Earn a college/university credit - Skip introductory college/university classes - Save money on tuition - Build college skills and confidence - Explore potential majors based on your interests - Just for the LOVE OF LEARNING!!! apcentral.collegeboard.org/pdf/ap-brochure.pdf
Students who write and receive scores of 4 or 5 (A or A+) may receive credit at many universities in Canada, the U.S. and overseas.
More details, including costs associated with writing an exam, are to be shared at a meeting on TBD.
The deadline to sign up for the 2020 exams is Thursday November 7th. Bring a USD money order made out to Iroquois Ridge High School or a USD cash payment of $100 per exam and a signed registration form to Mr Pearce in the Special Education / Ridge Room workroom by Friday, December 14..
In semester 2, Ms Normet will be in charge of all Advanced Placement questions and concerns. Her office is the same as mine (214) and she is here in the PM. Contact her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
A mandatory pre-exam meeting will be held in the library over the lunch hour or after school on a day yet to be determined inApril, 2019. This is a meeting for all students who are writing an AP Exam.
