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:
|Australia ||Cyprus||Germany||Poland |
|Belgium ||Ecuador||Israel||The Netherlands|
|Canada ||Egypt||Lebanon||United Kingdom|
|Colombia ||France ||Mexico|
