Advanced Placement Program

The Advanced Placement program allows students to earn college credit while still in high school. AP tests are designed to evaluate the achievement of high school students who have successfully completed coursework that is essentially the same as that of an introductory-level college course.

The What, When and Why of AP Courses, AP Exams, and AP Test Prep

Most colleges grant incoming students credit or placement on the basis of their AP exam grades. AP exams, each including a multiple-choice and free-response section, are administered in May; they test students’ retention of material learned throughout the year. There are thirty AP exams to choose from, ranging from Music Theory to BC Calculus.

Scoring and Scoring Strategy

All AP Exam scores range from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest possible score.

AP GradeQualificationCorresponding College Grades
5 Extremely well qualified A
4 Well qualified A-, B+, B
3 Qualified B-, C+, C
2 Possibly qualified -----
1 Not qualified -----

Unlike on the SAT I, incorrect answers on an AP exam will not hurt your score. You will not lose points for leaving a question blank nor for answering incorrectly.
