Put Your Knowledge To The Test: Take AP Exams in Grade 12
The AP courses (English, Math, Science and French) have corresponding AP exams that schools worldwide administer in May. AP exams provide students with a standardized measure of what they’ve accomplished in the AP classroom from Grade 9 to Grade 12, and thus an essential part of the AP Program.
As a result, university admissions offices and many high schools expect that students who enroll in an AP course will take the AP Exam at the end of the course in Grade 12.
The cost of taking each AP exam is $150.00. This would be paid in the year the student writes the AP exam.
Benefits Of Taking Ap Exams
Taking an AP exam allows you to experience a university-level exam now, while you are still in high school. Your work will be evaluated by unbiased college and university professors and AP teachers using university-level standards. If you are worried about how well you will do, remember you risk nothing by taking the exam in Grade 12. You control which universities (if any) receive your AP Exam grade.
Most universities in Canada and the United States, and institutions in more than 40 other countries grant student credit, placement or both for qualifying AP Exam grades. Students taking AP Exams give permission to the College Board to release their contact information to researchers supportive of the College Board's mission.
