AP Excellence  

The College Board, the parent organization of the AP Program, has commended TASIS England for its strong exam results. The TASIS England pass rate is typically 90%, which compares favorably with an American independent school average of 70%.

AP courses offer students an intensive academic experience as well as the flexibility and freedom to focus on their strengths. In addition, the AP International Diploma is available as an option for students applying to universities outside the United States.

What is the AP Program?

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is designed to provide motivated high school students with university-level academic courses. Established in 1955 by the the College Board in Princeton, New Jersey, the AP Program offers a range of externally-graded examinations.

The exams are graded on a scale of 1 to 5. More than 3,000 USA colleges and universities grant credit for qualifying exam grades (often 3 or higher). AP exam results are used as admissions criteria for universities in many countries outside the USA, including:

The AP Program and UK University Entrance

Admission to UK universities is determined primarily by examination results. The British university system regards AP exams as equivalent to A levels, the most advanced credential earned by British high school students. TASIS England students normally take at least three AP exams to be competitive at the most selective British and European universities.
