What is AP?

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program enables students to pursue university-level courses while still in high school. These are college-level exams taken in specific subjects which are conducted once, every year in May. Students require a certain number of credits to complete their graduation and many colleges offer credits for AP Scores. 


For example- Assume 6 credits are offered for your AP score, so that implies that you have already completed 6 credits even before entering college. This way you can complete your graduation early, save time and money as well.

Some Facts about the AP Exams

You can take AP Exams in Grades 9,10,11, and 12, and the scores will remain valid till you start college. Indian students who are planning to pursue their undergraduate studies in Australia, Canada, Singapore, U.K., U.S., and other countries are eligible to receive university credit, or even preference during the admission process based on AP Exam scores.


The Advanced Placement Program offers 38 courses and exams across mathematics, sciences, social sciences, arts, and world languages, but individual schools and test centers determine the subjects offered.
