AP®: Advanced Placement Program® Exams

College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® is recognized by universities around the world as a standard of academic excellence. Since 1955, the AP® Program has enabled millions of students to take U.S. university undergraduate-level courses and earn undergraduate degree credit, advanced placement, or both while still in high school/secondary school.

Nearly all colleges and universities in the United States and Canada — as well as more than 700 universities worldwide — consider AP Exam scores for admission, and grant credit and placement for qualifying AP Exam scores. Most universities also acknowledge course participation, regardless of AP score, favorably in the admission process.

AP Exams are administered once every year during the first two-three weeks of May. Registration in the Fall prior to the testing year is strongly recommended to ensure students have time to prepare.

Students already registered for late testing will be assigned to Administration 2 dates for the corresponding exam. Make sure you are aware of the mode of the exam you have enrolled i.e., if it is pen and paper or in a digital format. Please refer to the exam schedule on AP’s website to confirm your testing date, time, and exam format.

Administration 3 will have mostly digital at home testing option. Students who have already registered will be able to request to shift to Administration 3 only after approval from the AP Test center coordinator, AP coordinator will assess the reasons with a valid proof for testing during this window and share the decision with the student.
