About Advanced Placement (AP) Exams

College Board's Advanced Placement Program, commonly known as AP exam, is a great way to prove your academic proficiency. These exams are conducted in May-June at select schools across the country. AP exams check your knowledge and skills in subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Calculus, Computer Science, Art History, Economics, World History, Literature, etc. In India, 23 AP exams are offered. According to College Board, the average student takes 3 AP exams in high school and secondary school. If your school does not offer APs, you have the option to take them at a different school. Each school has its own registration and payment instructions, exams offered and fees. Generally, AP exams are paper and pencil-based tests administered at physical test centers, but now you can also take APs at your home on the computer.

In India, a lot of students score less in internal exams than they do in their board exams. Even Class 11 grades are generally lower than Class 10 or 12th grades. If you think you need to polish your academic profile in order to boost your admission chances, APs can be of great help. Not just that, AP exams help you earn college credits while you're still in high school or secondary school. This goes a long way in reducing your coursework load leaving you with enough time to pursue internships, join clubs and explore your interests. Also, some students take more APs to reduce tuition costs and save up to almost a semester's worth of fees.
