Advanced Placement

 

The Advanced Placement (AP®) is an American based programme that consists of university-level curriculum and examinations for high school students. Unlike IBDP or IGCSE, the AP® is not a requirement for students to obtain a US high school diploma. However, by challenging themselves to take AP® courses, students can show college admissions boards that they are motivated and self-driven, with the skills and ability to succeed in college.

The AP® exams, administered in May, are graded on a 1 to 5 scoring scale (5 being the highest). Many universities grant college credit to students who obtain a score of 3 or above on their AP® examinations.

  • Suitable for Grades 10-12
  • Subject offerings vary from school to school
  • Students choose which subjects to study
  • Multiple-choice questions and essay style
  • College credit granted for high scoring AP® exams
  • Favorable qualifier in the US university admissions process
