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 Tuesday November 13 at the beginning of lunch in Room 211.
