Advanced Placement (AP) shows that, while still in high school, you have acquired university-level knowledge and skills. Taking AP exams and scoring 3 or higher (out of 5) in college can bring you some advantages like many universities give credit or advanced placement for qualifying AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.

AP Exams are standardized exams designed to measure how well you have grasped a specific AP course’s content and skills. Most AP courses have a paper-and-pencil end-of-year examination, but a few courses have different ways of measuring what you have learned—for example, AP Art and Design students submit a portfolio of work for scoring. AP tests are exams on specific subjects at the college level and are administered in May after the completion of an AP course taken at the high school of a student. A high enough score will earn the student college credit at many universities and colleges. Earning college loans will mean an overall lower college tuition bill in some instances. In May, AP tests are only offered during a two-week period, so you need to plan ahead if you’re going to take them.

There are some new updates on AP exams 2021 -
