Through 37 different college-level courses and exams, AP provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admissions process. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP exams (based on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience great academic success in college.
