Who takes AP exams?AP exams are given to students enrolled in Advanced Placement Courses. Passing scores on these test may qualify students for college credit. Each college makes a decision about how many credits it will offer, and they may offer a different number of credits based on the score achieved. Some of the most competitive colleges offer no credit. However, they have an expectation that high performing students demonstrate a level of rigor that advanced placement courses provide, and they may use high AP scores as a piece of evidence in the college admissions process.College Board/AP Exams

Others accept CLEPs as evidence that students have demonstrated proficiency in a general education subject (like a foreign language). This may enable students to waive that course in college and replace it with some other elective. Contact your college admissions office for more information.Looking for more information about PSAT, SAT or CLEP Exams, Deadlines, Sign ups and Testing sites?
