The term AP is commonly used to refer to both AP courses and AP exams. Students may take as many AP's as they wish, though high schools typically have restrictions on which students, and how many students, can take them. Top-tier colleges often recommend that students take as many AP courses and exams as possible.
AP exams 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 exam 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.
Chyten uses a College Board approved curriculum to help students excel in AP Classes and to prepare for AP Exams. AP Exam prep typically runs for two months, though that can vary from student to student and test to test.
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.
