Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions, Iroquois Ridge High School will be registering AP exams for IRHS students only.
Iroquois Ridge does NOT offer AP courses/classes. We offer the opportunity for students to have their AP exams ordered and proctored. Students will study independently for their AP exam(s) and have that exam supervised by an Iroquois Ridge designated proctor.
Writing an Advanced Placement Exam is an enrichment opportunity for ALL students. Taking an AP exam allows students to learn a subject in greater depth at a first year university level. Interested students should be able to demonstrate intellectual curiosity and a keen interest in the subject area. They must be self-motivated and committed to learning independently in preparation for their choosen AP exam(s).
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.
Two virtual information sessions will take place to answer any questions from students. It is recommended that you attend just one of them if you are interested in taking an AP exam. The first one is on Thursday, September 24 at 3pm and the second is on Wednesday, September 30 at 7pm. Virtual meeing links to be shared closer to the dates on our school website.
The deadline to sign up for the May 2021 exams is Friday October 30, 2020. The first step is to pay the fee of $ 140 CDN on the Iroquois Ridge cashless system and submit the Google form. The second step is to register for the exam-only classroom on the AP website with a special code that you will be sent once you have paid.
