Frequently Asked Questions About Advanced Placement (AP)
AP exams are end-of-year tests that measure mastery of the content and skills taught in AP courses. Every AP course has a method of assessing what you have learned, and most of them use a standardized paper-and-pencil exam to do so. The exams consist of both multiple-choice and free-response questions, and they last between two and three hours. The exam is scored on a scale of 1 to 5 with a score of 3 considered as passing. A score of 3, 4, or 5 can potentially earn you credit or advanced placement in college courses depending on the college you plan to attend.
There are lots of benefits to taking an AP exam. First, the benefits begin with just taking an AP course at all. Research shows that students who take AP courses, even if they score a 1 or 2 on the exam, are still more likely to enroll in college and succeed in their introductory college courses than students who did not take AP. Plus, if you make a 3, 4, or 5 on the exam, you could earn college credit which will mean less time in college and less money spent on tuition and other costs. You could earn scholarships too. AP courses are challenging and will require you to put in a lot of work, but it will be worth it!
