KHS AP Exams


Three reasons why you should take an AP Exam:

  1. A good score may earn college credit: 90% of US colleges and universities provide credit and/or advanced placement of qualifying AP exam scores. College credit awarded based on AP exam scores can save you a lot of money. A good exam score DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY qualify you for college credit. You should check with the college you wish to attend and read their AP policy. Most schools provide this information on their website or in their catalog.
  2. Your score on the exam provides good feedback. AP Exams can serve as a good indicator of your preparation for college. A good score confirms that you have gained college-level knowledge in your tested area. It can also be a sign of the study and retention of skills necessary to do well in college.
  3. You may win an AP Scholar Award: The College Board grants some high school students who perform exceptionally well on the AP exams the AP Scholar Award. While the award does not have monetary value, it is an excellent addition to college admission applications.

    AP Ordering Deadlines and Policies

    One of the most significant changes for AP schools is that AP Exam orders must be submitted in the fall.

    Moving the exam taking decision toward the start of the AP course benefits students and boosts the learning culture in AP classrooms. When students commit to the exam from day one, they invest themselves in their classes, teaming with their teachers and classmates to do the daily work needed to earn a score on the AP Exam that will qualify them for college credit and/or placement.
