    Classes & AP Tests

There are some big dates ahead for your students. Many will be taking ACT, SAT, AP and SAT Subject Tests. Managing dates and study time appropriately is critical to success. With all but AP, your students will have other chances to boost scores. AP, however, is a one-shot deal. With AP scores an integral part of your child's college resume, the focus should be on preparing for these May tests.

Chyten’s Recommendations:

AP Courses: Tutoring as Needed
AP Tests: Tutoring March – Mid May 12-16 Hours of Tutoring Recommended

AP tests are given each year over a two-week period in May. They are developed by committees of college and AP high school faculty and represent college-level material taught in AP courses. Each exam contains a free-response section (either essay or problem solving) and a section of multiple-choice questions. Each AP test is scored on a scale of 1 – 5, and has the potential to earn students college credit, a waiver of college-level core requirements, or both. Typically, a score of 4-5 is required to receive credit or course requirement waivers.
