Why Take AP Exams?

To stand out to universities:

AP shows that you’ve mastered university-level knowledge and skills while still in high school. Nearly all universities in the U.S., as well as many in Canada, recognize qualifying AP Exam scores of 3 or higher on a scale of 5 for credit and/or advanced placement. Many universities in 70 countries and territories throughout Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Latin America also use AP toward admissions and recognize AP as a standardized measure of academic achievement.

To save money:

Many universities give credit or advanced placement for qualifying AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. For example, if you get a score of 4 on the AP English Language and Composition Exam, then you may be eligible to skip your university’s English Language 101 course. The more classes you can skip with qualifying AP Exam scores, the more money you could save on tuition.

To save time:

If you can skip an introductory course by earning a qualifying AP Exam scores, then you can take another class instead that will count toward your degree. Use the time you save to take on a double major, an internship, or an on-campus job or even graduate early.
