AP Testing Dates Set for May

Ellen Rydell

Are you ready for a unique learning experience that will help you succeed in college? Through AP’s college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit and advanced placement, stand out in the admission process, and ultimately feel accomplished that you’re challenging yourself.

Most four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 countries give students credit for advanced placement. By entering college with AP credits, you’ll have the time to move into upper level courses, pursue a double major or study abroad. This can ultimately help save you a payment on a college class, because you took that course in high school.

AP stands for advanced placement. They are college-level courses followed by an exam towards the end of the year. Taking AP classes is very beneficial, and can help you gain college credit for that particular class. By taking AP classes, you immediately stand out from the average high schooler.

AP tests begin at the first week of May and last till about the third week. You will receive a score from 1-5. Most universities look for a score of 4 in order to receive college credit.

Ms. Epstein, a college counselor recommends AP classes for students. “Advance placement is a great way to challenge yourself and to earn college credit for those classes,” said Epstein.

The dates for the AP tests are listed as followed:

May 6th 7am Environment Science
