Advanced Placement Programme

Overview of Advanced Placement (AP) Programme

Advanced Placement (AP) is a US College Board program that offers high school students the opportunity to take rigorous, college-level courses and earn college credit while in high school.

  • Taking AP courses in high school provides students with a competitive edge in the university/ college admissions process.
  • AP course results are recognized and accepted by colleges and universities both within the United States and across the world. 
  • AP courses often feature more interactive and participatory elements, such as class discussions, lab experiments, and group projects, encouraging students to engage actively with the material and their peers.
  • An Advanced Placement course is taught over one (1) academic year culminating with the student sitting an Externally Graded Assessment (Exam) in May.
