The Role of AP Exams in College Admission

AP tests, or Advanced Placement exams, are standardized tests administered by the College Board that correspond to specific high school AP courses, ranging from English Literature and Composition to Calculus, Biology, and many others. Earning high scores on these exams is crucial as it demonstrates mastery of college-level curriculum while still in high school. High AP scores can boost a student's competitiveness during the college admissions process, reflecting a commitment to academic rigor and the ability to succeed in challenging coursework.
